My Thoughts

Another outstanding episode, the real Joel is back. Yes heís a family man and never did cheat on Julia while we already know what she did last week, more on that later. I like how Peet told him he should help Crosby and confirmed Joel had not taken her hits they should be more than friends. I do find it interesting they found the need to have Julia sleep with someone else, wonder if she will tell Joel?

I did like the Crosby and Joel time, fixing the floors together, in one day mind you. as a Back to the Future fan it was nice to see the Marty McFly joke and them talking about Zeek selling the family home and Crosby showing a video of the family, leading to him going to fix the dishwasher for Julia. Also nice to get some Sarah and Julia time and finding out she had only been with 4 guys including Joel.

On a sad note we saw Gwen die this week and Kristina questions why she survived and her friend didnít, it was a nice touch they decided to name the school after her.

Finally we saw Drew getting back with Natalie, who didnít see that coming? Really it was a wasted store one to have then become officially boyfriend and girlfriend, I do hope we get to see Sarahís reaction and liked how she dropped in on him again this week, guess she was just making sure he was studying.

Lastly we got Amber taking Max to the photo studio, the first at the opening he was mad but Amber was impress how Hank handled him and later of course Hank driving Amber to the hospital in her car. Bit weird they didnít take his car since itís likely to be safer and more reliable for the long drive. Later Sarah arrived at the hospital to take over from Hank, how needed to pee. In a flash back to Luke and Gilmore Girls he had the same reaction, Ďno big dealí in driving Amber hours to get there.

Next weeks season final looks like a cracker.
