‘A Million Little Things’: Gary and Maggie’s timing was never right
Gary and Maggie met in A Million Little Things Season 1 at a cancer support group. He pushed Maggie to go through further treatment for her cancer. He supported her through chemotherapy, and their relationship grew stronger. However, when Maggie’s cancer went into remission, their relationship became strained. Gary wanted to marry Maggie, but she wasn’t ready. They decided to split so that Maggie could find out who she was without her cancer to define her life.
Both parties struggled with their breakup. In season 2, he sent a bottle of wine to Maggie anonymously when her date stood her up. Before Maggie left for Oxford, she decided to profess her love to Gary in the A Million Little Things Season 2 finale. However, it was too late. In season 3, Maggie began sleeping with her Oxford roommate, Jamie (Chris Geere) and unexpectedly got pregnant. When Gary went to support her through her abortion, he saw that Jamie was already there.
