Early in the episode, Gary was taken aback by the news when Darcy was back in town. She claimed she was going to talk to Katherine about how to tell him the news, but didn’t get a chance to have that conversation first. Liam now has the chance to be a big brother and we hope Gary is okay. He congratulated her, but you could tell he was hurting inside in the aftermath. We think this will lead him to think a lot about the future, especially since it was close to his future. Now Stephen and Darcy are back together and have a baby.
So with this news in mind, the question for Gary now becomes what he wants to do from here — not just that, but how he plans to go about it. For a while it seemed like he didn’t want to think at all in this episode. Instead, he scribbled and spent some time trying to help others.
We think Gary is going to take a long journey this season to try to be happy within himself – and it’s not always easy. It may take a little more reflection… but could it eventually lead him to Maggie? We can’t rule that out, even after everything they’ve been through since the beginning of the ABC series.
