My Thoughts

One thing I don't like about PH is how short the scenes are, I know they have a lot to pack in to the eps.

Okay, nice opening, Sarah water boarding Amber and getting her to babysit, of course there is some resentment between Juila and Sarah, hope we get to see more of that. Love the bit with Sarah swooping in to 'save' Sydney from the fire and then making faces, nice how Amber noticed that.

With Amber baby sitting good scenes, first he phone ringing (Crosby calling) and she got caught out. I'm amazed the neighbors didn't call the police given the are they live in. Then with the paper turtle, they so have some respect for each other and I love how they can tell each other what is on their mind. Didn't like Amber smoking but I guess she's still the bad girl sometimes.

Sarah in the guest house, 'new' car and she has a job, pity they skipped over most of those scenes and we got nothing about Jim. Oh and is Sarah's signature move the 'gun' fingers?

Crosby I don't know what to think, first with the fire balls but then coming through taking Jabbar to the hospital and calling Julia. But he needs to tell the rest of the family about him. Also we got some pic's of Katie with Crosby which were meant for this ep but I guess they are for next week or so?

Poor Drew, first Adam talking to him, then Zeek trapping him in the shower.

Crosby helping Adam & Kristina break into the computer was fun and then them finding out all that stuff and Steve's parents knowing about them.

Don't know why they needed to bring in Racquel again.

The BBQ was great with the family, also Haddie bringing Steve over, Whassup!
