My Thoughts

Really great episode, not too much of the Haddie story when it was mixed in with the parties and Sarah's story. At least we know know the reason Kristina is so against Alex and Haddie, great moments with Camille and the rest of the ladies at the bachelorette party. The contrast to the boys part was great, beer and takeout.

Cory is great, liked the talk with Sarah even if it was a little confusing, at least Sarah has a goal now and not wasting time at T&S when she can be making more money at the bar. Love 'baked' Adam, so much fun at the party with the girls and gotta love the dancing.

Like how we keep finding more out about Sarah, throwing fits as a kid and Camille trying to make Kristina feel better.

Zeek learning the hard way how it must be for is son with Max, nice how even the half baled Adam knew what to say on the phone.

Other thing, no Drew again! Like the family photo in the suit case for Haddie, subtle! Adam called Zeek when he was just a few yards away. Sarah teasing Julia about the food at the party and in again the party with the boys was so much fun! Sarah joking with Adam at work and the part. Zeek interaction with Jasmine before the party and again Adam baked!
