Good look into his character through this time. He's hurt, doesn't know where to go, and has a ton of confused feelings pulling him everywhich way. Talking to his mom and getting some perspective seemed to help. I got the feeling that under everything, the pain and the heartache, that little boy with the broken arm is still poking at him to face his fears and go for it again with Pam. Glad he finally listened to that inner voice too as the final scene was very sweet.

"He couldn't stop thinking about all the little things he knew about her. Her favorite flavor of yogurt, her favorite songs and just what to say to make her laugh. He wondered if these facts would eventually disappear from his mind, washed away like his grade-school teachers names or the periodic table. She is destined to be his past, and that's a hard pill to swallow."
That's just... really good writing.

You may call this angst, but it’s fluffy angst to me!
This was adorable. I love that his confidante is his mom, and the whole broken arm backstory. We don’t hear much about Jim’s childhood (other than what his brothers mention), and this was a refreshing twist on the whole seasons 2 to 3 plotline!
