With "Say Yes," Ruth's romantic life finally isn't the only drag on GLOW Alright, so here’s the thing: GLOW is a strange fucking show, where the romantic leading male is Marc Maron (no, not Chris Lowell), and the main love triangle, as a result, is Alison Brie being forced to choose between him and… some guy named Russell (Victor Quinaz), who’s nice enough or whatever.

GLOW takes a much-needed vacation out of the city and “Outward Bound” While “Outward Bound” is a GLOW episode that gets right back to not focusing on the wrestling of it all, it’s just as important as the G.L.O.W.-heavy episode that came before it.
