How do you proceed when you’re a teenage boy becoming a man… a man who’s in love with one of his mommies?
Well, I suppose getting naked in a room with her isn’t the worst idea.
And confessing your love for her shortly thereafter should be part of the plan too.
Though Ben (Douglas Smith) did both these things on “Big Love” last season, neither move yielded more than Margene (Ginnifer Goodwin) getting all weirded out and warning him that it must end.
What a difference, however, a year makes.
When Ben stormed into Margene’s house on Sunday night and got in the face of that bully J.J. (Zeljko Ivanek), protecting her and the babies from his menacing threats, we fully fell in love with him.
Wow, was that a hot moment.
Talk about a boy becoming a man.
And we weren’t the only ones who noticed.
When Ben, the bad ass, later canceled his band gig and was the only one who showed up to support Margie while she worked, she was overcome.
Can you blame her?
That sort of virility coupled with the tenderness and love he clearly has for her melted us.
We would’ve kissed him too.
Yep, mommy Margene made out with her husband’s eldest son Ben.
Weigh in here… how do you feel about this psuedo-incestuous smooch?
Should Ben and Margie run off together?
Isn’t there some part of you that wants to just say, Yes! Yes! A thousand times yes!
