Let's talk about the reveal in the finale that Rebecca had had a fling (possible sexual and therefore adulterous?) with a married law professor, and ended up institutionalized for a little while.

I think that took something away from the character. It was better when she seemed like someone who had always been neurotic but had also always been levelheaded, and moving to California for Josh was the first extreme thing she had done for love. Or at all.

I think it makes sense though when you consider one of the things Rebecca first did when she moved was flush her meds. She had obviously had problems before that were known.

I think it's possible who she was in New York was a response to that event as well, she went too far, but instead of realizing this and working on her issues she just repressed a lot. And that worked well enough to get her through law school and make her a successful lawyer, but since she never addressed her underlying issues in a real way, it was just a matter of time before she broke down again.

Mental illness can sometimes be a cycle, and I say this is as someone who is mentally ill (not to the extremes Rebecca is, but I know how it is to seem to be doing well only to break down again.)
