SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information about the main events of the episode. Continue reading at your own risk.
Whenever we saw Regina and her mother, there was a strangeness in the air between the two, and now with the opening of the restaurant that AA invested money, the two started to fight more. The point is that Regina is very angry when she finds out that her uncle Neil is the one who gave the investment money.
During the episode there is the strangeness and coldness on the subject, but with the discovery we see Regina completely go out of her way, and even scream at her mother. It is then that in a chat with Rome and Maggie, she tells that her uncle molested her. She, being the only black girl in her school, felt ugly, and the people said that. In a moment of fragility, her uncle asked her to take off her shirt, and she wanted to be told that she was beautiful, took off…
Neil abused the niece’s fragility, and what the series did was to show the victim is not to blame. Regina had the support of her husband and friend, and managed to think of herself and even what he could have done with his mother. His pain with her is that she didn’t stay by his side when he heard the story … Only now Neil died and they need to move on.

A Million Little Things it shows that it can go beyond Jon’s problems and that this process is necessary to develop his characters.
