My Thoughts

Okay lets start with the backbone of the episode, Crosby and Jasmine's wedding. The start was interesting, Dr Joe took it much better even after just buying the house, Lily was understandably upset. Wish this was a longer episode so we could have explored that more and other things that went on in the final. I won't say it was rushed but a lot happened in the 42 minutes of the show.

Them telling Zeek and Camille with Sarah walking just at the right moment, and then organizing the whole thing in 72 hours, just they couldn't wait until the summer. Of course Crosby was upset at Adam leading to him being dropped as best man and a somewhat lame food fight between the two of them in the middle of planning the wedding. Later when Adam took back his best man's job from a drunk billy all was forgiven when he informed everyone he had turned down the offer, they keep the Luncheonette. I must say Jasmine and crosby looked happy at the wedding and left Jabbar with the grand parents as they went off on their honeymoon.

Amber having a typical hard time of things with her involvement with Bob Little and working for him. In the end she talked to Bob and they agree to be friends and she will continue working for him, hope it works out.

Drew and Amy getting it on at the wedding, probably a little more than we needed to see, just thank god no one walked in on them, although Sarah noticed something was up when they returned to the party hot and sweaty. Hope they used protection, I can here the forum boards now.

After a tearful but satisfying final visit from Zoe where Julia returns the watch they decide to widening the net for a new baby scored a result in the form of a young Latino boy, 7 years old. Should make things interesting next season in the Graham household.

And that leaves us with Sarah, what a heart breaking choice she had to make, being level headed for once she knew she couldn't tie Mark down with the promise of a baby that may never happen after having second thoughts but in the end after Billy stopped hitting on her Mark shows up unexpectedly and proposes, wanting to do the right thing in the right order. Probably answering a lot of critics of their choices of late. Just one question remains as to how they will pull it off considering Jason Ritter (Mark) has a new show starting in the Fall, he is going to be busy come mid year.

The only think I can say I was disappointed in over the last few eps is not seeing more of Zeek's health problems or their planned trip in the trailer after they made such a big deal about it. Another reason this should have been an extended episode and not the usual network 42 minutes.

So lets hope we get another season with the Braverman's.
