Ever since that goldfish out of water story began, the show’s message has been clear: accept the things you can’t change, but believe that everyone has what it takes to be a better version of themselves. Unfortunately, in the case of Roy and Keeley, the timing of their independent revelations just wasn’t in sync with each other.
Since leaving selfish Jamie (Phil Dunster), Keeley has only grown stronger. Her rapid personal growth, however, went miles beyond Roy’s. Her journey to becoming a business mogul was misinterpreted by her former flame. After Keeley attacked Richmond’s gravel-gurgling gaffer, it left the perpetually angry Roy struggling to manage feelings he’d put on hold for years. As he opened up to someone he cared about so much, all he saw was that she was better off without him — although it was his support that helped her believe in her dreams.
As Goldstein explained to Glamor, “Basically, he thinks he’s not worth it and he doesn’t deserve this love; I think he’s about three steps forward and two steps back.” It’s a slow process, but a season is all about people moving on, Roy could turn a corner – thanks to the help of an unlikely ally.
