Her eyes lit up as she exclaimed, "Harm, they're beautiful. Where did you get these? As she looked at them, Mac was shaking her head in disbelief. When Mom found out that you had gone to Russia with me to find Dad, she sent these to me to give to you.
When he stepped back to look at her, his megawatt smile caused her to blush. A few seconds later she returned and Harm took the article and placed it over her shoulders. She grabbed her clutch and they proceeded to leave.
Most of the time the on goings at JAG were safe subjects for them, unless they ended up being on opposite sides of an issue which was something Mac knew they would both need to work on should they deepen their relationship.
As they neared their destination the conversation had fallen into another uneasy silence. Mac turned to watch him as he effortlessly weaved towards the exit they needed to take. God he looks so damn good in that uniform, she thought. It was then that she realized the reason for her unease. Being on a real date with him had changed her perspective.
Embracing the moment, she reached out and touched his hand. He responded by taking her hand in his strong, yet gentle grip. Connecting with him in this manner brought a sensation of calm to her senses. His voice was light, but she sensed a tad of concern masked inside. Squeezing his hand in reassurance, she replied, "Definitively a good thing. His comment brought her back to the time they went undercover for a mission in the Sudanese Embassy, another time they had saved each other's six.
They were dressed to the nines for the mission, and when it was over they had both agreed that they should get out as a couple more often. I guess neither of us brought it up again. Rabb pulled into the parking spot and took both her hands before he gently answered. If you and I had got together, we would have both been in trouble. Hell, I was so drunk when it happened that I don't even remember the ceremony.
It seemed like it was a lifetime ago and it happened to someone else. You were making time for me and I pushed you away, again. I was going to tell you everything, about Chris, about John, and that I was still married and I needed help fixing that. That night, everything blew up in my face. Did I ever thank you for standing by me? But you had me going for a while. He could have filed charges against me for striking a fellow officer.
At least it did at the time…" she said, her voice trailing off. She looked at his face and noticed that he was struggling with something. It just about killed me to see you in so much pain, especially knowing I was partially responsible," he offered.
His voice was strained to the point of cracking and Mac knew he was at the verge of tears. You don't share any blame for what happened. I don't know what I would have done back then. I didn't realize until my engagement party that I was marrying the wrong man.
What was it you told me, better to find out now, than six months into the marriage. As hard as that was to accept, you were right. The idea of collecting ex-husbands doesn't appeal to me," she said, attempting to lighten the mood.
Mac could tell he was teasing her back and she whacked him in the arm.

Conversation at dinner had set both of them at ease with Bud and Harriet going on about the expected arrival of their twins. Sturgis and Varese were at the same table and despite the rift between Sturgis and Harm; they were able to keep the conversation light and cordial.
Most of the credit went to Varese as she brought out the best the stuffed shirted submariner, at least in Harm's opinion. Throughout dinner, Harm found himself watching Mac interacting with everyone else as her smile and laughter filled his heart. It had been a long time since he had seen her so happy and this warmed his very soul.
One table over, General Cresswell and his wife sat with Admiral Chegwidden and his daughter Francesca.
Harm hoped he would be able to speak with the Admiral privately at some point. He leaned in closer to her, "But he may have to cut in. True to his word, after dinner and dessert had been severed, Harm had kept her on the dance floor throughout most of the evening, holding her much closer than he had in the past. This seemed to keep the potential suitors at bay which was just fine with her as she really only wanted to dance with Harm.
Sarah kept her head resting on his shoulder while they danced, knowing she would succumb to the moment if she allowed herself to look at him. I'll save that for midnight, she reasoned. Late in the evening, just as another melody was about to begin, she heard the Admiral's voice, "Mind if I cut in, Commander? He released her and was about to return to the table when she saw Francesca moving to intercept him. Her former CO was a very perceptive man and it would be next to impossible to pull the wool over his eyes.
Don't misunderstand me, General Cresswell is a good leader, but, well, we all miss you, Admiral. Nearby, Harm found himself in a somewhat awkward position.Harm and Mac: Scene from Season Eight Premiere.
Years ago, he had found the Admiral's daughter to be quite attractive and had, at one point, considered pursuing her. The two reasons he didn't were dancing a few couples over and Harm was hoping Mac wouldn't get the wrong idea. Anyone who has eyes can see how you feel about her. Mac and I are very close friends and she's been through a lot this year.
This sounds like a match made in heaven. Thankfully, she changed the topic of discussion to her travels with her father. It must be nice to finally get to spend time with her," Mac said. My daughter was kind enough to endure this stuffed shirt event so her old man wouldn't have to attend alone.
In all the years she had known him, Chegwidden had very seldom volunteered information about his personal life, and even then, only when he was forced to. Life can be strange, wouldn't you agree? I had always assumed she would remarry eventually, but when I visited her after accompanying Francesca home this fall, I found that she was still unencumbered.
We started talking about all that had gone wrong in our lives and since then we've been spending a lot of time together. This man is like a father to me. But do I really want to share this with him? The vehicle was totaled and I don't know how I survived with only minor injuries. He missed going to the Wall this year because of me. I also think he knows exactly what he's in for, and I mean as a compliment to you. She noticed Harm walk Francesca back to her table and begin a conversation with the General and his wife.
His question caught her off guard, "You knew? Her surprise was more than evident in her voice. I don't want to do that anymore. Look what happened with Mic. I wasn't ready for marriage and I let him push me into it, knowing I still had feelings for Harm. Accepting a ring from him when I did was a big mistake and because of it too many people I know ended up getting hurt.
You and I are both living proof of that, but I was a betting man, I would play the odds for you and the Commander. Honestly, I don't know whether Harm and I have a future together, but, if we do, I don't want to screw it up by rushing in until I've had a chance clear my head. Harm deserves better than that, and quite frankly, so do I. The music ended and Chegwidden escorted her back to the table. A moment later, Harm joined her.
She reached under the table for his hand. Is that why my ears were burning? The New Year was less than ten minutes away and she wanted to be on the dance floor with him when the stroke of midnight came.
As the band leader counted down the seconds to the New Year, Harm took Sarah into his arms, and she reciprocated by sliding her own arms around his neck. At midnight, surrounded by their friends, their eyes closed and the world slipped away as their lips came together in a gentle yet lingering kiss which soon took on a life of its own. She made it by a hair before she became ill from the alcohol and the emotional pain.
When she was finished she sagged against him, "Where is Lucy? I'm so sorry, Harm.
You need some sleep, but you're okay. I want to hold her. Sometimes it is still hard for me to realize you love me.
While she soaked he cleaned up the mess in the living room. Just before he went to retrieve their baby daughter, there was a knock at the door. He looked through the peephole and his stance stiffened as he spied the unwelcome caller on the other side. He undid the chain lock and opened the door slowly, finding himself standing face to face with his wife's estranged mother, Deanna Mackenzie. I came home this evening and found her drunk and heart broken, all because of you!
She's my daughter and I want to see her and my grandchild.
Mac will contact you when, how and if she chooses, until then, goodbye! She's my daughter and I'll see her when I choose to see her. I mean it; don't push your luck.
He looked down at his hands, at the vacant white space where his wedding band once sat. Johnston, then retired home with AJ.
The next day would be the truthsayer. He'd know then if he lost his babies or not, if he did, he didn't know how he'd go on. The following morning, Harm sat with his lawyer, Mac with her as the judge entered to render his decision. I am charged with a very difficult task, the task of choosing between two very loving and very capable parents.
If I had my way, which I often do, these two people would happily share their children and call it a day.
Alas, it is not my decision to say whether or not they should share, it is my decision to say which or these two will be the best overall caregiver for Lucille and David Rabb. Thus, I hereby award sole custodial responsibility to Sarah Mackenzie Rabb and order one weekend per month visitation to Commander Harmon Rabb to be carried out on the fourth Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the month. Mac leapt for joy, going to Mic's arms to celebrate her good fortune.
For his part, Harm sat still, too devastated to move. Part of him was numb; another part was crumbling to dust as sure as the world was spinning round.
He could do nothing at first except sit and stare into space, until Maureen brought him out of his emptiness. She touched his shoulder, "We'll appeal. And you could lose visitation.
If we file she'll probably try to revoke it all together. Why don't we go out for a bite to eat, we'll restrategize. They were both drunk for much of their married life. He was later arrested and sent to prison for motor vehicle theft.
At some point, Mac finished high school. On the night of her graduation, she was traveling in a car with her friend Eddie. They were both drunk, and were involved in a car accident that killed Eddie. After graduating from high school, Mac joined the Marines. It was under his recommendation that the Marine Corps put Mac through law school.
While stationed in Okinawa, Mac engaged in an affair with her superior officer John Farrow. Unbeknownst to Mac, Chris Ragle followed her to Okinawa and discovered the affair. John paid Chris the money he demanded, but Chris threatened to kill him anyway. Mac tried to wrestle the gun out of Chris' hand, but it accidentally went off and killed him instead. As a Major, she was subsequently assigned to JAG headquarters.
It was hinted by Admiral Chegwidden that Mac's assignment as Harm's partner was recommended by his former partner LT Meg Austinwho had transferred from headquarters to another assignment.
