Agreed. I've said it before, and I may or may not have opportunity to say it again before the comic ends, but anger is a good look for Sara.
Oh God, it is
. Maybe that's why I miss straight-Sara so much.
Regarding Stan, he's not, like, evil or anything. A little too ambitious and short-sighted, maybe.
Now, that said, Penny and Sara aren't in the wrong for disliking him. He broke two of their friends' hearts. Even under normal circumstances, that's enough to turn friends against you. Throw in Michelle's eating disorder developing not long after and it's more
than enough justification. It doesn't matter what he meant to do, it matters what he did. After all, people pretty rarely mean
to break someone's heart, it just happens. That doesn't make it okay, though.
I also feel that Lisa isn't in the wrong. She's looking at it on the not-Michelle-and-Brandi's-friend side. (I'm sure she doesn't dislike them, but how often have we even seen them together?) So she sees it as, "Yes, he hurt Brandi and Michelle. No, that doesn't make him Stalin. He seems mostly cool, I'll give him a chance."
Meanwhile, Penny and Sara are on the first side of it-- that bastard hurt their friends, so he can rot in hell.
Edit: Also, I have to say, I absolutely love that Lisa is standing up for herself here. Whenever it comes to conflict, I feel like we've seen her shrink back and try to make it go away. I can't recall her ever standing up for herself, especially not against Aggie.
