Back in November when I last reviewed the ongoing relationship, David’s character had been shot and was struggling with feelings that he wasn’t good enough for Addison. And it was just a mess from there. In December, Kevin got in a huff about Addison treating a prostitute because of potential connections to crime. It ended up in a fight about Addison’s control issues and Kevin’s different perspective on life. He left… for a while. And it wasn’t great when they got back together briefly.
