Wolf Like Me - Episode 2

For the second episode in a row, Mary (Isla Fisher) crashes into Gary (Josh Gad). This time it's with a coffee rather than a car. And, after sharing another moment together she runs again, leaving Gary to chase her and learn her unbelievable secret. Other than brining the pair together again, the episode also explores Gary's past shame and his fears about his daughter (Ariel Donoghue) who has an attempted suicide early in the episode. Gad continues to give a strong performance here as a man at the end of his rope, who has found some comfort in a complete stranger carrying around no small amount of pain as well.

While a werewolf girlfriend seems like the least likely thing to help put his life in order, that's certainly how things look to be stacking up two episodes in. However, the coincidences of Mary inserting herself into his path seem a bit hard to believe. Is there some larger reason, despite her apparent reluctance, to force herself into his world? As for Mary's story, we'll have to wait another episode to find out just what Gary has gotten himself into by following her home and where things might go from here.
