Season 2 | Episode 4 | Aired April 21, 2015
This review was supposed to be up last week, but life kind of got in the way and, one thing after another, here we are. I promise I won’t be waiting until next Tuesday to review tonight’s episode. Hopefully that’ll be up tomorrow (hopefully).
Now, where to start. This episode was once again a very relationship-centered episode. But it was also very Grant-centered which made me very happy!
Elizabeth and David’s relationship has pretty much bitten the dust. Elizabeth kissed Kyle (Gabe’s dad) and when David heard about this he agreed to go out with his TA. Which, can I just say, anyone who watched two weeks ago totally saw that coming. He was flirting with her so hard, like that was not subtle at all. David doesn’t even get points for trying.
I’m kind of holding out hope that they’ll get back together, but honestly, I’m not really expecting it, and part of me also hopes they don’t. Does that sound awful? Probably. On one hand, I would love it if they got back together. But on the other hand, I’m surprised they lasted as long as they did. The only reason they stayed together was because they were looking for Carter. Now they’ve found her and all these secrets are coming out and they need time apart. I just hope they don’t do some miraculous make-up between them. This show has always been so real and I really want them to show that sometimes a family functions better when they’re apart for a little while.
Things were heating up for the teens on the show. Bird and Max seem to be getting along pretty well (I’m curious to see where that goes), Carter kissed Crash (I think his name sums up how their relationship will go), and Taylor did… something… with Ofe in a closet. Dear god please don’t have her get pregnant.
We finally got to see a lot of Grant in this episode! I was so happy about this, Grant gets shoved aside a lot in his family so I was really happy that we got to see how everything is affecting him (it’s not good). Things weren’t really helped when his grandmother took him to lunch to meet one of her friends who also happens to be a shrink. FYI, The best way to get your grandson to trust people and open up to them isn’t by lying to them to get them to the shrink. In the end, Grant agrees to continue seeing the one, but they aren’t going to tell Elizabeth! Yeah, I don’t see that ending well, do you?
Finally, *deep sigh* Lori. She convinced her ex-boyfriend to seek out Carter and convince her to help prove Lori is insane so she’ll go to a hospital instead of prison. Without going too much into what happened, Carter did so and Lori has been declared mentally unstable. I mean, yeah? But then with everything else that’s happened, all the lies, and the guy talking to Lori on the phone after he met with Carter. Is she really unstable? I don’t know anymore. We’ll just have to wait and see what crazy stuff happens next. Oh, did I mention that this whole situation is what reunited Carter and Crash and that it was done behind Elizabeth’s back?
Everything is going to come crashing down. There’s no possible way this can end well. I said in my last review that they keep saying ‘no more secrets’ and then they keep more secrets. That wouldn’t be so bad if this family’s secrets didn’t involve affairs, thousands of dollars, and kidnappings.
What do you think? Are you excited about Carter and Crash? Taylor and Ofe? Or are you just happy Grant got so much screen time?
My review of tonight’s (April 29th) episode should hopefully be up tomorrow night. As will my recap of the Dancing With the Stars 10th Anniversary!
