Ryan Faces a Court of Wilfreds in a Guilt-Ridden Dream on 'Wilfred' (VIDEO)

'Wilfred' - 'Sacrifice'For months Wilfred has been trying to teach Ryan how to stand up for himself and be more assertive, but as soon as him doing so might hurt Wilfred, it's a completely different story. Suddenly, it's the guilt card all over the place on 'Wilfred' (Thu., 11PM ET on FX).

Now, we'll agree that Ryan deciding on a whim to fly off to Italy with a woman he'd only just met on the beach goes a little beyond impulsive and leans more toward reckless, so maybe Wilfred is still looking out for him.

The guilt trip culminated in a trippy dream where Ryan was put on trial, with Bear as his defense attorney, and surrounded by Wilfreds at every turn demanding that he choose Jenna over this new girl. Sure, Jenna has a boyfriend, but we all know this is the girl Ryan's meant to be with.

Her boyfriend is a jerk -- he proposed to her right after she got fired from a job for being high on the air as a news anchor -- and Ryan is the kind, sweet guy who watches her dog (a LOT) and even picks up her dry cleaning. Eventually, she'll see him, right?

But since this is 'Wilfred,' we never quite know what was real. Was it just a dream? Or was it that part of Ryan's subconscious that can turn a dog into a crass Aussie in a costume trying to tell him something? Assertiveness and direction are definitely things Ryan needs to find in his life, but maybe patience is another thing worth having.
