I think she will be mildly amused. The internet was ready to be very sad again with the debut of the fifth season of Bojack Horseman on Netflix this past Friday. While it puts a strain on his and Gina's relationship when she finds out what's going on, the final nail in the coffin was when a drug-induced BoJack strangled her.
