Josh definitely made these women feel important but in my opinion did not do enough for Tommy. I can't help but feel after watching that if they tried harder for a few more days they could have found it, felt like they were in the right area. I know it's just a TV show though so he cares but kind of doesn't too. The close but disposable nature of it kind of leaves a sour taste. It's as if a disclaimer should be at the start of the show telling you they don't find it but please watch and see what we do find might make me feel less cheated.
