‘A Million Little Things’ Season 4 Episode 7: Eddie ends up on a date with Peter’s wife

In a strange turn of events, Eddie Saville (David Giuntoli) meets Peter Benoit’s (Andrew Leeds) wife, Anna (Erin Karpluk), while driving. Peter is Sophie Dixon’s (Lizzy Greene) former music teacher who sexually assaulted her. In A Million Little Things Season 3 finale, Gary helped Christopher assault Peter. (Andrew Leeds also recently appeared in The Conners cast as Darlene’s latest love interest so we might not see him back on A Million Little Things soon).

Anyway, Eddie doesn’t know that Anna is Peter’s wife. The two flirt a little, and he’s interested but worried that she will not like him once she sees him in a wheelchair. However, his physical therapist, Russ (Michael Patrick Thornton), gives him a pep talk. Coincidentally, Eddie invites Anna to a concert with Sophie. Of course, the teen is upset at seeing her and storms off. 

Later, Eddie brings Anna back to Sophie’s house. Peter’s wife explains to Sophie that she left Peter, and she apologizes for everything that happened. Most importantly, Anna tells Sophie that she believes her. Later, Eddie tells Anna they can’t date because of Sophie. At the end of the episode, Sophie finally agrees to audition for MMI. Is this the last we will see of Peter and Anna?

Who is Maggie’s stalker in ‘A Million Little Things’?

Maggie’s stalker storyline continues in A Million Little Things Season 4 Episode 7, “Stay.” Her boyfriend, Camden Lamoureux (Ryan Hansen), hires her a bodyguard named “Bulldog” (Danny Wattley). She’s upset about his overprotectiveness and refuses to stay at Cam’s place. (In the opening scene, the producers make a big deal about showing Gary wearing a Cam Lamoureux Bruins hockey jersey. No, he’s not a real hockey player).

However, later she opens another letter from her stalker sent to her home, not the studio. So, Gary visits Maggie to help her feel safe. He also admits that he’s seeing a therapist who says he uses humor to deflect during difficult times. (No one is shocked). Gary installs new locks on the door for Maggie as they talk through the Darcy drama.
