My Thoughts
The parts I loved this week are the family dinner and the follow up where the siblings got together to talk about their parents and Camille going off to Italy without Zeek. Also Max with Hank continues to be great, he really knows how to get them to talk, Hank then thinking twice about letting Max be there, but going to Sarah late in the episode to apologise and re-invite him to work at the studio.

Natalie using Drew for sex, but clearly he though it was much more, its a nice development that Natalie appears to want more by the end of the episode. Like how Adam and Crosby congratulated them selves for their part in it. Speaking of which the guys are still having problems with their band, the mini concert was a good idea, nice to see amber being used more and part of the Braverman team at the studio. Not sure is Ryan feels the same way, just hope we donít have jealousy wrecking things between them. Ryan at the end proposing on bended knee was nice, with a way too expensive ring.

Julia feeling guilty over her friendship with Ed, even though nothing happened. To make her feel worse it was Joel apologising for working long hours on the house project, not that he was complaining about the booty call at his site office. And now Camille will be gone, the only person she has been talking to even though Ed never came up.

Yes Camille is off to Italy and Zeek was not invited, I think he should have been given the choice but the time apart could do them some good, like how Camille got out of the cab to give Zeek a proper goodbye kiss. But now Zeek is home alone and already forgot the security PIN to turn off the alarm.
