Gary and Maggie’s Road Trip on A Million Little Things May Not Be the Reconciliation Fans Are Hoping For

Could a fan-favorite couple be on the verge of reconciling on A Million Little Things? Gary (James Roday Rodriguez) was forced to get some closure with Darcy (Floriana Lima) after meeting her ex-turned-partner Stephen and realizing that the two of them actually belong together. The painful realization was followed by Gary discovering Maggie’s (Allison Miller) “I’m In” Post-It note from when she was in the hospital. He then volunteered to go on a road trip with her to confront her stalker. It’s obvious that romantic notions are back in Gary’s head, but it remains to be seen if Maggie feels the same way, especially after just telling her hockey pro boyfriend Cam (Ryan Hansen) that she loves him. 

The first half of Season 4 has been a big one for Gary, who narrowly skipped prison after helping to beat up Peter (Andrew Leeds) when it was revealed the music coach wouldn’t face any consequences for sexually assaulting Sophie (Lizzy Greene). When Darcy discovered what Gary had done, she left him, and Gary finally put himself in therapy. He’s working on himself, but this new Maggie situation is a landmine of triggers for Gary’s worst habits. 

TV Guide spoke to James Roday Rodriguez about what this trip could mean for Gary and Maggie’s future and what Gary still needs to figure out before he’s ready to be in a functional relationship with anyone. What can you say about Gary’s mindset heading off on this road trip with Maggie after having that conversation with Stephen and seeing the Post-It note?
James Roday Rodriguez: He’s sort of he’s living in a rather serendipitous is-the-universe-trying-to-tell-me-something place, because frankly, I think that that’s easier to do than facing reality, which everyone on the show struggles to do. That’s just scary. That door is officially closed with Darcy, I think, and any closure that he might have been looking for has been had. His reality is that a new chapter is about to begin, and what do any of us do when faced with that reality? Our first instinct is usually like, “Hey, what piece of familiar real estate might make me feel better in this moment? Because it’s scary, and I don’t know where I’m headed. And I don’t know what the future looks like. Let me reach for this thing that I know will make me feel better in the moment.” So it’s not surprising that he could look at that Post-It and think it means a lot more than just “Oh, I found this Post-It because it was the bottom box.”
