Amy's Friends and Co-Workers Still Think She's Crazy on 'Enlightened' (VIDEO)

'Enlightened' - 'Now or Never'Even though Amy might have fantasies about the people in her life enjoying the same kind of spiritual awakening she did in Hawaii on 'Enlightened' (Mon., 9:30PM ET on HBO), the real world is going to be far harder to convince. You can go away and find peace, but finding it in the daily grind is nearly impossible.

It was nice to see this week that she's still the flawed and angry person we saw in those first few minutes of the pilot. She has learned the tools to be a better and calmer person, but that's going to be a daily struggle for her, made even more difficult by the fact that she returned to her old company.

While they dumped her into a data processing position in the basement, her former co-workers and even her old assistant have clearly turned their backs on her, thinking her still the crazy person who had to take a sudden leave of absence after she lost it in the office.

Her assistant blew off a lunch meeting with her, though she at least had the decency to be ashamed about it and half-heartedly proposed a new meeting. Amy may have to adjust her expectations about her return to work, but that doesn't mean she still can't create positive change in the work environment. It's just going to be way, way harder than she first thought.
