I like how Jada is using big words like "codependency" and "healing through others", when she basically has been cheating on Will but sits there with a poker face "because it was such a long time ago" while he looks damaged.

I don't even care if it involved sexual intercourse; if you take time apart to "make yourself happy" but then find yourself in the clutches of someone half your age (because it's so hard to say no), sounds to me like you failed the test. Where does she get her superiority from?

Oh, you get to bring it to the table and I can't?
