Yes, there was alot of plot twists and turns.

Deirdre Griffin has a great life; it's just not her own. She's the around-the-clock personal assistant to her charismatic, high-maintenance, new-age-guru brother, Tag. As the family wallflower, her only worth seems to be as gatekeeper to Tag at his New England seaside compound. Then Deirdre's sometimes-boyfriend informs her that he is marrying another woman, who just happens to be having the baby he told Deirdre he never wanted.

If you could sum up Wallflower in Bloom in three words, what would they be?

Pleasurable
Wonderful
Entertaining

Which scene was your favorite?

I just love that Tag finally realized Deirdre was important. I also love the relationship between her and Steve!

If you could take any character from Wallflower in Bloom out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Deirdre, because I think I could be really good friends with someone like her!
