Description HADDIE MAKES A BRAVE DECISION, CROSBY AND JASMINE REACH A ROUGH POINT IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP, WHILE DREW SURPRISES HIS MOM WITH SOME NEWS -- JOHN CORBETT GUEST STARS
Sarah (Lauren Graham) and Adam (Peter Krause) discuss a situation with Haddie (Sarah Ramos). Meanwhile, Haddie, Amber (Mae Whitman) and Max (Max Burkholder) run into Alex (guest star Michael B. Jordan, Friday Night Lights). Crosby (Dax Shepard) and Jasmine (Joy Bryant) meet with her reverend for pre-marital counseling. Elsewhere, Drew (Miles Heizer) meets his father, Seth (guest star John Corbett, United States of Tara), for breakfast. Monica Potter, Erika Christensen, Sam Jaeger, Savannah Paige Rae, Tyree Brown, Bonnie Bedelia and Craig T. Nelson also star.
Another good solid ep, love the opening with a song, reminded me of the pilot. nice to see Drew and Amber get a decent story and some screen time, John was great as Seth in his 'Emmy Moment" after Sarah went to see him. The music this week was particularly good, especially hearing John's band play.
Okay enough of that, it was nice to see Sarah having a different attitude to Adam/Kristina and allowing them to go see their father, it was kinda nice not to have Sarah there.
Now on to the others, Haddie. I think the story kinda ended a little quick for my tastes, Camille talks to Haddie then she goes home and her parents allow her to see Alex, maybe they came to their sensors I don't know, not sure if I liked the Disney ending with them hugging then playing basketball together. I'm sure we haven't seen the end of this.
And Crosby, yes about time he snapped. As Zeek would say Jasmine was wearing the pants in their relationship and I'm glad he let her know how he was feeling, still hope they can work things out (I haven't seen next weeks promo).
Other notable points, yes it was cute to see Sarah resting her head on Zeek's arm also having that talk about Seth, maybe she does still have feelings for the father of her kids. Just hope they don't go down the same path as Lorelai & Chris, sorry it had to be said.
Also I love how Max told his parents about the basketball practice without realizing what he was saying, it must be hard for Adam to hear Max wants Alex to teach him.
