Heart-squishing runner-up this week was the oft-time champ, the Niki Lauda of tear-jerking: Adam Braverman. All hail the complex play of emotions on Peter Krause’s face as Adam looked on with pride and reluctance and fear at his wife as she announced her candidacy for mayor.

Of course, he didn’t act alone. Krause got a major assist in the soundtrack department from The National. That’s the second time “I Need My Girl” was used in a network show this week.

But the heart-squishing heavyweight this week was, undeniably, Lauren Graham. When Sarah tearfully told Amber about how her wedding was not what she wanted and how she wanted to give her daughter something better…well…you look me in the eye and tell me you didn’t cry into your appletini.
