My Thoughts

So this week its all about Zeek’s health as the family rushes to support Camille at the hospital.

Still as usual there was a lot going on this week. Julia turning up with Joel, Sarah and Amber already knowing what has happened, very interesting how Julia is considering it as a pathway to them getting back together. And telling the nurse Joel is her husband even though she just signed the divorce papers, weather they will actually file them and make it official is now in doubt.

Joel was great, bringing them coffee, joking with Crosby and rescuing Julia when the family was firing all those questions at her after Zeek crashed and went into the operating room.

Meanwhile Hank wants to be there for Sarah but she was a bit cold to the idea of him hanging around, I put it down to bing worried about her father. Then the some would say badly timed proposal, which was sweet as he wants to be a part of Sarah’s life and after the talk with Drew now feels he can do that. There was also the great scenes with Drew, calling the guys him mom has dated losers.

We also had Amber turning up to be there, best part was the baby shower being moved to the hospital cafeteria and the book they gave Amber, a real tear jerking moment this week. No sign of the kids, but I guess they were to young for this event.

On top of this bad night for the family the Luncheonette was trashed, thousands in equipment stollen and no video cameras to catch them. Bit weird they got an insurance offer so quickly and interesting that Adam wants out but Crosby with Jasmine’s backing wants to keep his dream alive.

The ending with Joel and Hank talking in the bar and Crosby and Adam was a nice end to the drama filled episode.
