My Thoughts

This weeks episode is the reason many love this show, even if a couple of key cast members were MIA or had very little to do this week. But with such a large cast this is bound to happen most weeks.

First lets start with when we left off last week. Jasmine waking up the next morning, some regrets and feeling like she just did with Crosby what broke them up in the first place and getting him to leave before Jabbar comes back home. I half expected Crosby to have to leave via the window like he once did in the first season. I'm glade Crosby saw how good Dr. Joe is and told her not to say anything or she might loose him. Or maybe he was saving his own skin as I think Joe could take him.

Then we have Kristina giving Adam the cold shoulder freezing him out, something Crosby didn't miss. It was good to see Kristina work though her issues and calling Rachel in the end. Max going missing (thus the title) was probably the key and while it was nice to see then all at the museum as a re-united family in the end I would have liked to see Max punished, but is that possible when he doesn't see what he did wrong and even Haddie couldn't get through to him. Of course Kristina blamed her self for being mad at Adam, they'll have to work on balancing their work and home lives as Sarah and Haddie or the rest of the family won't always be around to baby sit.

How cute was it to see Mark and Sarah looking after Nora for the day, nice they are on the same page and Sarah is only a little freaked out by the thought of more kids, only 2 or 10 on the freak-out scale. I was hoping to see more of those scenes. The scene with Kristina handing Nora over and they bother thanked each other for taking care of their baby girls.

Speaking of it was nice (predictable) after last week that Kristina would give Amber a job as her assistant, just hope it doesn't end like with Julia last season, but I think Amber has grown. And why didn't her Uncles offered Amber a job at the Luncheonette? She likes music, plays the guitar and not likely to want to kiss Uncle Adam.

Finally with now Joel around it was up to Julia to carry the story with Zoe and her baby. Being a lawyer it was understandable they were never going to give them month for the baby. In the end Zoe leaving Troy and turning up at Julia's door was probably the best thing, I just hope they don't get too attached.

Other things, Rachel wanting to quit and Crosby talking her out of it, Crosby fixing things with Kristina by delivering her new baby. Adam trying to use the hand free phone dialing in the car, yes they can be frustrating some times! Max on the bus was a great scene, then lost on the streets. Adam talking to Haddie about what happened. And of course Zeeks Virilia commercial on TV love they followed up on that but where was Camille?

Now we have at least a 5 week break until the show returns, happy holidays.
