My Thoughts
Finally we got some resolution between Ryan and Amber after he broke things off, I’m glade they spoke and he promised to come home safe, It was also nice to see Zeek talk to him and also to Amber. I wouldn’t be surprised if Ryan returns late in the season.

Carl helping Sarah was nice, not sure if he’s after more right now. Nice banter between them, ‘I don’t live under ground’, ‘you kinda do.’ Later Hank running into Sarah after being blown off at the interview and of course Sarah gets the job. But Sarah quickly realises she’s in over her head and goes to Hank for help. I liked the scenes between Hank and Sarah and that they are working together again.

Meanwhile Oliver from the band moves in with Crosby and Jasmine, which she hates, Jabbar likes Oliver. He’s had a fight with the other members of the band, refusing to go to the studio abut eventually a talk with Jasmine clears things up.

Max looses his one and only school friend Micah, which Max won’t talk about. But this is normal behaviour for some one with Aspergers. Sad to see Max trying so hard only to the shot down by Micah but it was nice of Adam and Kristina to try to fix things by going to the basketball game with him.
