My Thoughts

Another tearjerking episode for the second last Parenthood even. This week entered around career week at Chambers Academy where Adam mentors Edward in French cooking, yes only on TV would a former shoes sales person think they could do that, but amazingly the soufflť turns out perfectly. Meanwhile Max being his usually self gives the depressing facts that most of the students are unlikely to find work because of their varying conditions. It was nice to see them talk to Mac about his future which is clearly in photography with Hanks help.

Joel is moving back home, Sydney is happy but Victor is worried about their next fight which doesnít take long after he finds the new underwear Julia had bought for Chris and a classic fight in the car or out side to shield it from the kids. But as long as they talk things through Iím betting it will work out.

Amber is having a quite meal with Sarah and Hank as they talk about the wedding before she starts having contractions. Love the scene with them running around behind Amber not knowing what to do first, then the bad text with Adam and Kristina expecting to see the baby already. Also a side note that is you look closely the old man sitting near the door as they enter the hospital is non other that Lauren Grahamís father.

Anyway back to the show and Iíve been waiting for Kristina to say something to Jasmine and why not at the hospital, of course they ends up with most of the family yelling at each other and the grand parents walking in to witness it. Then just after it breaks up Sarah and Amber come into the room, false labour so no baby yet.

Through out the episode we hear about where Hank pictured having the wedding and after the siblings have their dinner with their parents Sarah wants to have the wedding next week so Zeek will be their given heís decided not to have any further operations. Iím sure both of their dreams will come true at some point.

I liked how Sarah dropped in on Amber while she was playing the guitar and they had another nice hart to hart, they have come a long way since Sarah dragged Amber with her to their new home in the pilot episode.

Eventually Amber goes into labour for real but this time only wants Sarah there, still itís a bit weird Hank didnít drive Sarah given it was the middle of the night and he likes being there for his new family. It was nice they called Zeek and Camille and Amber naming the new baby after her grandfather.
