Compare Lou's breakup with Donny to Christie's breakup with Mike. Do you think either relationship could have worked out, had the circumstances been different? Do you think Christie truly fell back in love with Mike, or was he more appealing to her because she didn't think she could have him?

I don't think either relationship was going to work since both women didn't seem that invested in their respective relationships. I don't believe Christie fell back in love with Mike. I think she was lonely and wishful thinking that Mike may break up with Jamie and fill the void she has.

No, Lou's relationship with Donny was over long before they split up; she didn't love him, nor he her. In the case of Christie and Mike, they made the right decision years before, and I really don't think Christie fell back in love with Mike (if they ever really were in love, not just infatuation with sex thrown in). Christie is loyal to Mike in that she believes in him and wants to help, and she's at loose ends at the moment of the shooting, but really, she is just having a fantasy about Mike; she's not in love with him.

Christie was just at loose ends herself and fantasizing about getting back with Mike was just a product of her loneliness and isolation.

No and no. Lou was never that into the relationship with Donny and what there was had been over for a long time. Mike offered to marry Christie when he found out she was pregnant and was relieved she did not accept. She did not fall back in love with him, maybe lust but definitely not love.

I think Lou's and Donny's relationship was doomed. There was no foundation to keep it going. Christie and Mike should have tried harder as a couple to communicate and keep it together. What the family went through was very traumatic and most couples can't overcome the issues. Christie and Mike were too young when they were together and it was easier to give up than fix it. No I don't think Christie truly fell back in love with Mike. She still feels for him and wants to help him.

I don't think either of them would have worked in any circumstances. Lou liked Donny as a friend and felt comfortable with him. The two couples both seemed to care about each other but were not really good matches. I don't think Christie fell back in love with Mike. I think she was flattered that he came back to her when things were rough. It made her feel superior to Jamie when she had always felt she wasn't good enough .
