Another good episode chock full of the humour, bickering and family drama we’ve come to expect from the Walkers.
Most of the show revolved around Nora, Kitty and Kevin’s road trip to pick up Justin who is back from Iraq but injured. Along the way they call into a conservative call-in show saying all kinds of things including calling George Washington gay. This puts McAllister into spin control to defend his future in-laws. Meanwhile Justin is back but badly injured and unfortunately clean and sober which makes what is going to be a long recovery even more painful.
The rest of the episode introduced a new character, one of Rebecca’s friends, who gets a job working for Tommy. It also closes the door on the Sarah-Joe storyline when he reveals he’s back together with his ex-wife and the silence you hear from me is expressing how little I care. Especially, with the recent announcement of the great Steven Weber joining the show as Sarah’s new love interest. Definitely a trade-up. Rebecca also told Sarah her part in the kiss with Joe and although it doesn’t go over so well with Sarah, this late in the game as a viewer it seems like they’re just wrapping up loose ends even though I’d long forgotten it.
Overall, a decent episode with lots of what makes the show great but it seemed more like a transition episode than anything else.
