And I think asking her to gamble on her family's future by letting a grown man make his own mistakes with the family money is asking an awful lot. I disagree that this is "his" restaurant. It may have been his idea but they mortgaged the family home to make it happen, she gave up her career with his blessing and encouragement, it's THEIR business now.
I'm not blaming Lynette I just don't think she understands or even tries to understand how he's feeling(and vice versa, they have issues.lol). Technically he bought the restaurant without her knowing. If they do consider it their business, then she should listen to him and be willing to talk decisions regarding the business. IE, adding pasta she listened for half a second on why he didn't want them and then told him too bad she was adding them to the menu. now with Rick, Tom said he was going to come back so they didn't need Rick anymore. Tom did have 3 valid reasons for saying they could get rid of Rick, 1 - with Tom back they didn't need someone in that position. 2 - it is eating into the profits to have someone in a position they don't need. 3 - Lynette's interest in the guy. Lynette didn't even point out that Rick is the one cooking that food and it is Rick's recipies, she just didn't want him to be let go for selfish reasons. Neither one really listens to what the other one is saying, ever.
At the end of the show was it Rick who said if hitting on the owner was what he needed to do to become restaurant manager he would or was it someone else? I was listening but had my head down working on something at the same time.
ultimately I think they will work it out for now, but they need some serious counselling and this is just going to be 1 more thing that does land them there.
