Grace at half-time

The mid-season finale of Saving Grace aired Monday night.  The death of his brother has caused Ham, Grace's partner, to focus his grief on Grace and their wild, greedy relationship.  Ham tells Grace that he will ask for a new partner after he returns from his compassionate leave.

Rather than staying real and gritty, the writer, Nancy Miller, shows Grace riding a white horse into a misty night at the edge of a lake, with the horse's rearing in front of a full moon.   I think she should have left her crouched in the corner with tears running down her face.
