    1. _"Pilot"
      gs: Randall Batinkoff [ Everett Moreland ]

      After several dreamy days in Italy, where the two meet while on solo vacations, they return to their separate lives in Los Angeles. But Leo can't resist calling Isabel, even though she decides to accept a marriage proposal from her longtime boyfriend. The bond they formed overseas haunts her, too, and Leo is nothing if not persistent: "When love does come around," he tells her, "you can't take it lightly."
