My Thoughts

Sarah still worried the project is not ready but Hank sends it off knowing it is, I like the banter between them as Sarah worries while waiting for a replay. It was nice that in the end Hank waited outside as Sarah took a meeting about the project, then the hug when it all worked out. Also how Hank tried to tell Sarah he still has feelings for her but Sarah just wants to be friends.

Max wants to extends his boundaries but it ends in tears when the other kids on the school trip tease him, I didnít mind Kristina hugging him even though Max protested, she knew he needed it even though she also needed to do to. One of the most touching moments of the show.

Drew is in a bad place, hiding out at Amberís tiny apartment, getting high and playing the guitar, he really needs to get it together but it was nice Amber is there to support him. Bit weird we didnít see Sarah but I guess this time itís better she wasnít there.

Victor is having abandonment issues when Joel is late picking him up, very understandable given his family history, not sure if buying the cell phone was the way to go but as long as this gets Julia and Joel talking then maybe they will get back together and Sydney will stop blaming Victor for the separation.

And finally is looks like we might have a buyer for the Braverman family home, it was interesting that Camille said no when Zeek was all for the sale now. It will be interesting to see if they accept the increased offer.

Only a few more weeks to go in the season and lots of stories to tie up.
