Dinner as she is thanking him for letting her stay and lets him know she will be moving out soon, she is taking the property management job and now has affordable rent! Issa will be glowing up the rest of the season, I think.
During dinner, Daniel tells Issa what happened at the studio. Issa gives great advice, tells Daniel he was wrong and tells him he should apologize. Daniel wanted, at that time, for Issa to be his yes man–again their co-dependent relationship rears its ugly head. Issa giving Daniel good advice triggers Daniel to lash out. Daniel finally calls Issa out on always leaning on him to save her when she is in a jam, and telling her she is unqualified to give him work advice.
That is totally not true, Issa is a smart, educated woman who is just figuring stuff out, the advice she gave was good, Daniel was just not ready to receive it.
At the end of the night, they are laying in bed and Daniel tries to make up with sex, Issa stops it because she is on her path to growth and knows she deserves more. She deserves a whole man, not a situation. Good for you Issa!
According to Psychology today, here are 5 signs you are in a HEALTHY relationship.

- You keep your own identity within the relationship and so does your partner.
