Amy is visiting Drew at college for the first time since their break up, Natalie is clearly jealous of Drew’s ex asking Amy when she plans to leave and going by the last scene it doesn’t look like she wants to go. Mean while Sarah is beginning to fall for Carl after finding out he’s a doctor and all round nice guy, I wish this happened before she jumped into bed with him. Also enjoyed her scene with Hank about his problems, Sarah might have to make a choice as to who she wants to be with. Speaking of Hank the scenes with Max were well done, from the outburst at the start to the chess game at the end Hank learned a lot about the family.
The fun of some time to himself is starting to show with Zeek wanting Camille back, running out of food and underwear it was nice to see him make a friend that in turn made him see how good he has things.
Things are going from bad to worse for Julia and Joel, it was good she talked to Adam but really needs to talk more to Joel and tell him the truth. Ed needs to be out of the picture before things go too far.
