My Thoughts

Anyone else still annoyed at the edits sometimes between scenes?

Okay loved the whole episode apart from the fact they haven't told Max yet. IMO it's just a matter of time before he finds out and it's probably going to be from him over hearing someone or a strange spilling the beans.

Zeek was sweet and got a lot of the good lines again, love the family discussed what they should do as a couple. Then the dance and the bit at the end, all nice.

Of course the scene with Amber and Sarah was great but does it make up for Drew MIA again?

Love that Crosby is wanting to go 'all in' with Jasmine, the scenes at the school was fun when they put on their rings.

The Joel and Julia moments were good, nice to see them talking about things, Also Julia explaining things to Sydney and in the first scene Joel covering himself as he left the room.

Kristina looked so sad in the support group, nice to see Adam come around in the end.

Lastly Sarah, what is she doing? I know Gordon made the first move and is likely to get things he wants but I'm just annoyed that Sarah is getting sucked into his world. I feel sorry for Mike and just waiting for the blow up with Adam and Sarah.

Very good episode, can't wait for more!
