My Thoughts

Hot opening! After last weeks prom episode this was a great follow up, funny scene as Adam and Kristina realizes what they are listening to on the car phone. Adam & Kristina debating the call and Haddie coming home all innocent and Adam trying to find out what happened. Adam did not handling it well until Kristina talks to him. Nice to see them add get closer with Kristina telling about her first time and Adam putting a band-aid on his little girl, a great story and very little Max time to break the follow.

As for Amber, she is out of control and Gary isn't helping matters! It was sad to see how ungrateful she was Julia and blaming everything on Sarah for how her life is turning out, and pushing her mom like that. I thought the dinner scene was sad the moment Sarah realized Amber was high, This is were we got that twitter pic from Mae Whitman a few weeks back.

Joel helping Crosby fix his new house, well who didn't see that coming? I hop eit works out as right now it will take a miracle for Jasmine to take him back. That said I think Cros needed to show Jasmine the house so she could have some input if she is to take him back, I know it's a grand gesture but I'd hate for him to do all this work and for the 'Hail Mary Pass' not to work out.

Sarah and her play, you got to love any time they talk about her girls LOL. I thought Zeek was a little pushy but I can see where Sarah gets it from, also nice to see Steven Weber in the show, just wish they would have promoted it a bit better.

And finally Cory is back taking control of the ad campaign, but I think they must be doing okay as there has been no mention of trouble for a while, nice touch having Karen sucking on the lolly like Adam did in a previous episode.

Jabbar and Jasmine are back, okay it was a short scene but nice to see her still keep in contact with Julia.

And Drew finally returned, just a pity it was at such a back time! Heart breaking moment as Sarah is pushed over, such mixed emotions with her play being received so good by those who want to put it on.

Also a nice scene with Adam and Sarah, good to see their roles reversed some what with Sarah giving Adam some advice is dare I say a potential Emmy moment!

And WOW the final scene with Amber and the car crash! Next week is going to be a cracker season final, lets just hope it's not the series final.
