So lets start with Amber quitting her job at the Bob Little campaign, after being humiliated by her aunt last week. Of course Sarah goes off to find out what happened blaming Kristina at first but later apologizing at her home. While dropping the bombshell about moving to New York City. First I think Kristina did have the best of intentions for them and Bob's political future but maybe it could have been handled better. I like she went to Amber and apologized later. But I always thought Amber should have got a job at the Luncheonette given her love of music.
I guess any future in that direction depends if Adam can get Crosby to sell the business. It was a nice offer and of course Crosby turned it down, point blank. Adam from the start looked interest and no wonder why given his mounting debts and Haddie going off to college soon. It was nice that Jasmine is on Crosby's side as she know how much it means to him.
I've thought for a few weeks that Jasmine was having second thought with Dr Joe, this week sealed the deal, Joe had good reason to be worried. Around the camp fire they're having a good time until Jasmine burns herself, Crosby to the rescue with the Braverman first aid kit. Jasmine finally saw the man she loved. Later in the rain Crosby admitted to screwing up and Jasmine admitted she never stopped loving him. She asks if he still wants to marry her, Crosby says yes, Jabbar smiles from the car and joins them. Look out for the wedding next week.
Sarah and Mark planing a move to New York kinda came out of no where but it's not like they are planing on going next week. They are considering the kids and any most is a year away when Drew will likely be off at college so finally time for Sarah to do something for herself. Over a night picnic Sarah informs Mark she has made some calls and is on board with a possible move, the baguette joke with an obvious one but nicely timed. At the end of the episode Amber comes by early in the morning during the rain storm and climbs into bed with her mom but doesn't want to talk about what happened. Is Sarah having second thoughts about moving?
Then we come to Julia and Zoe, he water breaks in the dairy section of her local market, calling Julia she comes to take her to the hospital, she is worried about the birth but her anxiety is calmed with an icy treat. Later after a painful labor she doesn't want to hold the baby, understandable. But the next day when Julia and the family come to pickup their new baby boy Julia spots Zoe in the nursery holding and bonding with the baby, she knows its over as they exchange looks Julia leaves to find a quite place to cry.
MIA this week was Haddie and Max along with Drew and the grandparents.
