    I hope she knows enough to have the strip point Piro toward a counseling service that could help connect him services that could help. Having him try to take care of all those kids while trying to stay in school isn’t a good situation for anyone. And it’s making him feel like a failure as well as feeling ashamed of his situation. Glad for the revelation; it makes him more sympathetic than just a moody poser.

    I’m most surprised that Piro even has time to take any college courses, considering he’s looking after 6 small children.

    Bernice has to learn self control.. and needs to change herself before she thinks about changing others.

    Really, the only way B could help Piro is if she knew some folks who could help him with the kids. It’s unlikely that any of the books she’s read would give her ideas of how to help with this very real world problem, and if she tries to get him to contact the state’s child welfare department, the kids would be split up among foster homes (sometimes the foster homes are good, sometimes not, but splitting them up is never good)…

    B has never had to deal with this kind of thing — where would she get an idea of how to fix it?

But I don’t think there’s any food in the house, so you’ll have to go shopping first. Since you’ll be spending most of your time over at the house now, you might want to pack a bag.

    Awww, sweet, funny, and, if you are a viewer who has been focusing on hate of Bern’s personality, or Piro’s weirdness you completely miss the point of this and more’s the pity. She wants to help, overanxious or not, he wants her too help, and he has revealed more about himself to her than anyone else. And in case the strip(his)torians forget her own family situation kind of mirrors his, what with her distant brother, his kids at her parental home, and the mother in Phillipines with the maternal father and grandfather. She’s an aunt who can’t deal with being one now evidently. Anyone realize that? Not to mention whatever the real reason why she has to stay away from home, clearly cheaper than her scrambling to find a place to live while in school, finally living with her best, near life-long friend’s family. This is funny, and is meant to be, but it has a serious and beautiful story behind it. story behind it. See it.

    Bernice. You are in training to become a counselor. That training, so far as it has gone to date, is leading to try and fix Piro’s situation. But unless you’re going to volunteer, and, help “manage” Piro’s siblings (did Bernice help with her brothers and sisters, does she help with Shannon?) do you have an actual clue as to what to do to help?

    The problem is, it’s never about who she ‘wants’ to help. It’s all about Bernice. I doubt if she heard one word Piro said. SHe’s the type of person who never listens, she’s just waiting for a break so she can something. Here’s a college student who thinks she has all the answers, because she’s a ‘psych major’ She reminds people of that ad naseum.

    Piro knows the importance of mental health and has people to help him. But he doesn’t like his friends trying to fix him, which is why he walked away from Tara and Luann. With Bernice, Piro didn’t find the listener he hoped for. But he has finally told his worries to someone with whom he feels he has a connection, or with whom he wants to create a closer connection. Now, let’s see if Bernice will actually be able to help him or she’ll do something that will make Piro angry.

    A truly nice ending; if Bern was going to try to restrain herself for anyone it would be Piro, someone she has feeling for and he asked her to do that and she realizes just how hard it is and maybe a little self awareness has crept in. But she has given him space before and for that he felt a bond and has placed trust in her, in spite of her current obsession with textbook psychology (which he recognizes). And she makes it, this time limping past the finish line; maybe the bond between them will strengthen and continue. Bravo to G&K for a deep and meaningful arc.

    First time commenter here. Been following Luann for many years. I’m guessing that this arc will take a little different direction than what many are expecting. I think Bern has touched Piro — he gets her. He knows he can trust her, and he’s going to give her a chance to help. And, one way or another, she will, even if the help is not “psychological” in nature. Piro will be the one to help her grow.
