She switches to putting words in his mouth and huffs off anyway full of righteous indignation. Love that she [Lena] sees that kind of neurosis in chicks and love her even more for putting herself in the role of playing the worst of it.

Absolutely. I also loved how that scene specifically, but that whole storyline really, played with the real life criticism the show received for it's white washed cast AND then equally for the tokening of Glover.

She's a smart one that Lena. I can't wait to see what she has up her sleeve.
