Inn. An excited Korean couple checks in, quoting Annie's ad when they see her. Advertising works! Just like all those bus-stop bench ads have been telling me.
Chieftain. Patrick and Annie have gathered Patrick's various parents together to return the money they loaned him, and to announce that they're moving in together. Celia tries to act like she's okay with it, and is about as successful as she ever is, which is to say, not very.
Marin's. As Jane and Marin clean up the muffin detritus, Marin admits that she rushed it with the house. Jane hopefully asks whether Marin's going to sell it, but she says she's going to back to the Inn until the house is ready: "I'm going to date it." I hope she knows that this house is not going to be a cheap date.
Jack's/Celia's. The chief is enjoying her SAD machine when Ellis bursts in: he heard she responded to a bear attack, and he came to see if she was okay. She pissily asks who drives two hours just to check in, and Ellis says she knows who. Before she can say it, though, they briefly bond over their shared SAD suffering, and then Celia manages to call Ellis her boyfriend, admitting that doing so was kind of nice. Maybe now the heat from the SAD machine can melt the pole up her ass.
And then Marin's riding her bike again, saying that in order to start moving forward, you have to stop looking back. It's safe to stick with what's comfortable (Ellis joins a delighted Celia at the Chieftain)...but love isn't safe, and we don't know where it'll go (Jack and Lynn walk tensely down the street, not holding hands, as Marin cheerfully greets them on her way past). All we can do is hang on, "even if we feel vulnerable -- naked, even" (Jane finds Sam at work out on a snowy road, and takes off her coat to reveal that she only has her lingerie on underneath, and apparently all is forgiven as he pulls her up for a smooch). Though you might never feel ready to move on or move in, "you have to, because that's how we grow" (Marin bikes up alongside Patrick and Annie, who are way too excited to be delivering papers -- particularly Annie, who can't be at all comfortable sitting on Patrick's crossbar). "And growing is what it's all about." We conclude the episode as Marin fondles the tree that came from Jack. AND LYNN. OKAY?!
