Rewatch: Without A Trace Season 1

Wow, I didn’t think I would ever be able to embark on a rewatch of this show. It was my first real TV obsession …… it was also the first fandom to break my heart. There was a time when I used to know this season like the back of my hand but since it’s been so long and I’ve watched like thousands of episodes of different TV in that time, there was a LOT about this season that I had actually forgotten.

1.01 – Oh Eric Close is so pretty! Vivian and her headset!!! Old school! LMAO! Maggie talking to her Dad about her love life? Cringe. Equal cringing is given to the Jack/Sam/collar scene. I’d forgotten how much I like the background piano score in this show. Danny/Martin competition. Sam insisting that it’s the father! [“Guess he’s more than just a pretty face.”] Concorde! How old is this?! Lol. I forgot all about Martin getting hit on the head and having to go to hospital.

1.02 – That’s that kid from HIMYM and Wizards Of Waverly Place, right? Hee Martin getting punished. Danny still doesn’t like him! Love the little Martin/Samantha exchange there. Yay for Martin/Vivian friendship. The Goo Goo Dolls poster! Super cool tackle Martin! [“I heard you got a little wet.” “Beats sweating my ass off in the dog house.”]

1.03 – Those two actors have been on like every show! Nice Samantha … all those digs at Jack’s marriage. Homeless woman offering Martin a lick of her ice cream! Martin/Vivian friendship. [“Scream.”]

1.04 – Cute cat!! Chet Collins!!!! I forgot ALL about him!!! [“You’re a hope junkie like the rest of us”] So sad, poor Becky. [“You can hang on to me”] Awwh Jack, I might actually like you this season.

1.05 – Oh God it’s THE episode. Danny/Martin with their cool sunglasses. OMG the tension when Danny is inside the house and Spalding comes back! Van Doren!!!! [“What kind of ambiguity?” “The ambiguous kind.”] Danny being all apologetic. Vivian covering for Jack. Here we go … the Jack/Spaulding/Moby scene … So so creepy but powerful.

1.06 – Do you reckon this episode was meant to come earlier? The reference to Danny/Martin still not getting on but in the last episode they were working together fine. There should be a rule where Samantha doesn’t get to talk to Jack about marriage and divorce. It’s just awkward. Grey’s Anatomy shooter guy!!! Danny/boy so cute!!! [“It’s simple: a plane is not supposed to be in the sky. It’s not natural.” “Neither was that flight attendant but you weren’t afraid of her.”] Nice leaving it open-ended with the possibility that Kent is still alive.

1.07 – Oh Vivian I love you but that jacket …. Really? It’s Elizabeth Banks!!! Amateurs! Clearly the FBI would ask for proof that the perp had the girl before agreeing to a ransom drop. Is that paedophilia taking photos of cute children without their parents’ permission? Ouch Vivian, you dug the knife deep into Jack there. Nice twist focussing most of the episode on that family before realising that the wrong child got kidnapped. Love the team all at the desk on the phone. Vivian finally gets a chance to shine.

1.08 – Ooh Martin’s really annoyed with Danny!! Mention of Vivian and her brother! I couldn’t even remember she had a brother. [“Didn’t know they made them like this at the Bureau.” “Yeah, I walk and talk and I’m anatomically correct too.”] Danny/Polly. Whatever happened/didn’t happen there?!

1.09 – [“Oh look, paediatrics, maybe he’s a paedophile!”] LOL Sam. I remember this episode – it’s where Martin’s convinced the guy is a terrorist, right? And everyone else on the team doesn’t, especially Samantha. [“It’s Samantha, nobody calls me Sam”]. This episode was so good. I mean not good in the way it ended but the way they had Martin be sort of prejudiced, then try to save the guy and be all distressed when SWAT shot him and how they ended the episode with showing what he had actually been talking about when he talked about blowing stuff up.

1.10 – That woman is Tyra’s Mum in Friday Night Lights!!!!!!!! Nice little Jack/Vivian interaction there <3. Interesting case! Couldn’t remember it at all. I vaguely remember what the whole ‘Midnight Sun’ referred to but forgot how it all came together. OMG Jack’s undercover clothes! Denim is not a good look for him. Nice unexpected ending there.

1.11 – Dude, even if I lived in the safest town in the world I would never not lock my door or leave my keys in my car! Extensive use of Avril Lavigne in this episode. Danny the alcoholic! Awh sweet Martin/Samantha moment. Interesting case, I don’t know why but I thought that the mayor did it. Turns out he was just Trainer’s alibi. Awhh Sam/girl.

– Love Sam’s theory! She’s so cynical! Martin/Danny banter. It’s AJ BUCKLEY! Hee!  Vivian going undercover! So glad they got that son of a bitch.

1.13 – Chet Collins! Rosalind Chao! Vivian putting Jack in his place! OMG look at that old school wire!! Oh wow, this episode!! See it’s episodes like this one which remind me why I loved this show so much! Amazing!

1.14 – Coldplay!!! Cute Danny/Sam moment there! Hee one of my favourites! Martin/Samantha and Josh Hopkins “Eric Keller” and Tim Matheson!!!! Jack’s lonely heart ad and Vivian’s response “My husband is looking better every day!”. LOL! Georgia Peach! LOL! [“Hey, you think it’s easy being surrounded by guys with guns all day?” “I thought you liked guys with guns.” “I like the guns.”] Martin/Samantha/football. Oh I love this Martin/Samantha moment <3.

– I love that this show does the flashback thing. It makes the whole episode more interesting. [“I guess love is blind … and deaf … and very very dumb.” “Spoken like a true romantic.”] Interesting case. I vaguely remembered the father-in-law having something to do with it. Weirdly I like the Martin/Jack banter/conversation in this episode.

1.16 – It’s Amber Tamblyn!!!! Danny backstory!

1.17 – I can’t remember much about this episode apart from the fact I remember it’s not one of my favourites. It’s Mac from Friday Night Lights! That is an AWFUL tie Martin! Martin’s father!!!! [“How was Washington?” “DC as in Didn’t Co-operate.”] I forgot how much this show relies on polygraphs. It was actually quite an interesting episode in the end.

1.18 – Ooh the Delia Rivers episode! Josh Hopkins again! That ADA guy is pretty suspicious. Martin/Samantha … [“You and Delia – fuzzy boundaries.” “That’s how I like my relationships. Nice and complicated.” “Clearly.”] – the way she holds his gaze after he says that and he has to change the subject <3. Jack’s wife and children! Danny carrying one of them <3! [“Who the hell is Hilary Duff?”]. Interesting case. Poor Delia Rivers!

1.19 – IT’S CHRISTOPHER GORHAM/AUGGIE!!!!!!!!! WHAT is up with Danny’s hair?????? Seriously?! Hee Danny/Martin/vampire talk. [“It’s five flight of stairs.” “Better than a stairmaster.”] IT’S THAT CREEPY LOOKING GUY FROM LOST!!! IT’S ROBERT JOY!!!! I actually can’t believe that Jack and Sam thought that the guy’s parents were controlling! I didn’t think that at all. I can’t stop staring at Danny’s oiled hair. Is he trying to be Jack or something? Danny’s hair is back to being cute and fluffy! Danny’s slicked back hair is back.

1.20 – Vivian/Reggie!!!!!! [“Hey Viv, are you and Dante dating or something …?” “I’d watch it if I were you. She has a wicked left hook.”] Danny’s fluffy hair is back! Love the Danny/Sam banter. The mother killed her son!

1.21 – Oh THIS episode! That Andy kid looks a bit like Harry Potter, right? Graham Spaulding is CREEPY. Van Doren! OPR!!! All the flashbacks!!! Danny badmouthing Martin! Samantha and Vivian are not impressed! Ugh Jack/Samantha. [“This is where I work you little pencil-pushing maggot.”] Vivian’s loyalty to Jack is endearing. Danny/Sam/Vivian telling OPR guy to shove it. Fast-forward the Jack/Samantha scene there. Spaulding went free? Kill me now. Ugh.

1.22/1.23 – IT’S MINELLI!!!! Gregory Itzin has been in EVERYTHING. Oh this episode … Barry Mashburn and the bookstore hostage situation. Van Doren! Martin’s jealous! I love that they based it around 9/11 and wove that into the story. Samantha got shot! Jack the “hero”. Martin/Samantha <3. Does anyone actually know why he calls her “college girl”??? The best I’ve got is that Samantha pretended that she was a Nurse? Hallelujah!

Rewatch: Friday Night Lights Season 2

Was Season 2 as bad as I remembered? No actually. I don’t know whether it’s because I was able to take certain awful storylines with a pinch of salt this time around, knowing that this show would get excellent again but this season contains a lot of forgotten gems. Also, it is important to note that even if I don’t like some of the storylines, this season isn’t boring. It isn’t a complete waste of time. It’s not as bad as some shows where not only is the entire season a waste of time but the few storylines they try to include to keep it exciting are some of the worst relationships/writing/characterisation ever. Also, TIM RIGGINS <3 <3 <3. My feelings for him were never quite on the same level as the rest of the fandom’s but I think this season made me fully appreciate his adorableness. And I never shipped any of the kids until Season 4 but I have found a sudden fondness for Tim/Lyla on this rewatch. I have no idea where this has come from.

2.01 – [“WWRD – What Would Riggins Do?”] Matt/Landry scenes are so funny! Tami’s giving birth! [“Why’s her head so pointy?”] That is a very good question Julie. I was still thinking that in Season 5. [“She’s dating the Saracen and she’s flirting with the Swede.”]. Landry/Tyra – so awkward! Lyla the Christian! Tim/Lyla! Hee. Coach/Grandma Saracen hug! Julie the epicly moody teenager. Tough new coach! Matt/Julie – SO AWKWARD. Lyla’s grace! Haha. Tami <3. Buddy going crazy at Pam’s boyfriend! Wow that is some fancy party. Landry – Tyra’s knight in shining armour. LOL. That is some awful singing. I prefer Landry’s band. That’s how bad it is. Oh dear God, I physically can’t watch this Landry/Tyra thing play out. Coach is an awesome father to Julie in that scene. OH NO, IT’S THE MURDER STORYLINE. To be fair, it is quite realistic. It’s just all the stuff that comes after. Like the dumping of the body. The rock music playing. Gracie is the ugliest baby I have ever seen. I forgot all about this presenting of the champion rings scene.

2.02 – Glenn!!!! LOL! Grandma Saracen’s tiara. New Coach trying to oust Buddy from his top spot on the Boosters – I forgot about this! Landry playing football? Ouch. Oh God it’s Carlotta! The start of another storyline that makes me embarrassed for this season! The Swede really doesn’t look Swedish. Tami <3 <3 <3. I am actually really curious/interested/excited to see the Tim/Lyla play out this time around. GLENN to the rescue!!! Okay that Tyra/Landry crying scene was kind of sweet …. Until the kissing happened.

2.03 – Coach/Matt … Awwh. I forgot that Riggins gets hospitalised. [“I don’t want Glenn over at the house with his hands on my wife’s icebox.”] LOL. Tim at church!!!! LOL! Oh I do like Buddy now. That Tami/Julie scene was really intense. That Tyra/Landry’s Dad scene was nice. Coach/Tami <3 <3 <3. Jason’s rant at Tim <3.

2.04 – Hee the Mexico episode! I do feel a bit sorry for Coach McGregor. Oh Jason/Tim in Mexico – LOL! Julie’s driving lessons! Awesome Tami/Julie conversation. Tami/Julie <3 <3. Spanish karaoke! Poor Coach is upset at having to screw over McGregor.

2.05 – [“Aren’t you sweet to ask about little old me?!”] Coach/Tami bedroom scene LOL! Tim/Lyla/Jason in Mexico. [“I’ll take him back to Texas in a box if I have to.”] <3 <3 <3. Coach making Tami go to book club! Coach/Matt/Smash dinner! I forgot about this! [“I love ya, don’t touch me!”] I forgot about the fact that Coach still thinks Landry is called Lance! [“She’s cute. Does she do anything yet?” “She’s mostly just a baby.”] Matt talking to Tami about Julie! Hee. Tim’s speech to Jason <3 <3 <3 <3 <3. So it turns out that I really like the Mexico storyline <3. Landry <3 <3 <3. Tyra is so harsh to Landry, I know why she had to do it and that it hurt her too but wow, ouch. Matt standing up to Julie <3.

2.06 – Tami’s sister!!!!! It’s Terri from Glee!!!!!!!!!!! Santiago and the pig! Coach being jealous of Glenn <3 <3 <3. Santiago on the football field! Coach and athletics! [“It squeezes milk out of a lady’s udders”] oh Billy! Smash inviting Tim to dinner! Tyra/Julie friendship. Coach/Jason <3. The soccer coach! Tami/her sister. Santiago/Tim/Smash/Matt playing football!

2.07 – Tim/Tyra, hee! The effortless way Tami got Tyra and Lyla to help her out! Oh God it’s the Julie/teacher thing isn’t it?? I forgot ALL about that! Somehow I thought we went from !awfulJulie/Swede to nothing for awhile. Santiago is sort of adorable. Wait, an entirely black college actually exists??? How is that not racist???????? Isn’t that racism in itself?! [“Don’t whisper-yell at me!”] Tyra/Lyla in the men’s lockeroom! LOL! I LOVE this Tyra/Lyla/football team storyline! Matt can’t dance! Have to say that it was a bit naïve for Smash’s Mum to think she was going to change his mind about that. The look on Tami’s face when the team start stripping is hilarious!!!!!!!! Tim’s new roommate – that weird guy! Buddy and Santiago! I actually can’t remember how the Santiago story ends but he was adorable in that last scene.

2.08 – Matt the player! Coach being jealous of Glenn/Tami is adorable! Tami threatening Noah! Wow. Coach being jealous of Glenn is kind of annoying now when he gives that speech to Tami. One of the rare times where I dislike Coach. Smash getting chased out of college and having to call Matt to pick him up! LOL! Landry/Lyla conversation. That doesn’t happen a lot! Tim walking into the Meth lab! Tim’s apologies to everyone <3. Matt/Carlotta. Boo.

2.09 – LANDRY!!! I’ve always thought that the guy who plays his Dad actually looks like he could legit be related to him. Tim on athletics/gymnastic duty!!! Tami/Julie fight! Santiago <3. Tim get out of there ASAP! Gracie’s baptism.

2.10 – Tim/Gracie adorableness. Also, that’s a cute baby playing Gracie for once. Oh so I guess this is the episode where the legions of Tim/Julie fans on started shipping? Tim is pretty adorable though. Shelly and Julie staring at Tim working out! LOL! Buddy bonding with his family! LOL Buddy on the dance machine! [“So you’re taking Tyra to the fall formal? Does she know that?!”] LOL Julie/Landry. Man Tyra messes Landry around doesn’t she! Look at the Taylor family plus Tim sitting around and doing their homework! Awwh. See I like the Tim/Julie friendship and that’s it. Poor Buddy! Tim/Coach playing pingpong in the middle of the night! School fight! That must have been insane to film! The best bit is when you see Tyra beating up that guy with all the hair and then it descends into a food fight. Ugly baby Gracie is back. OMG the dancing at the school dance! Landry standing up to Tyra! DrunkJulie! Poor Tim! That’s the thanks he gets when he tries to do the right thing – like with Becky! This scene always makes me sad.

2.11 – I like Shelley more this time around! Smash’s hardcore recruitment! I wish Julie told Coach the truth about the Tim thing there. I HATE that she doesn’t and that Coach hates Tim! Smash’s Mum is awesome! I cannot believe Julie doesn’t defend Tim. Ugh. She gets a few points for apologising to him. LMAO! The channel changing to ‘The Office’. Coach/Smash talk. Yay Julie finally tells Coach the truth about Tim <3. That Coach lost it! Tami/Shelley <3. Coach apologising to Tim <3 <3 <3. Coach/Julie <3 <3! Taylor movie night <3.

2.12 – Gracie’s going to day care! Or not! LOL! It’s WEEVIL! It’s LOGAN!!!!!! Glenn/Gracie!!!!!!!!! Buddy being all hospitable. Pretty sure he’s going to live to regret that. Coach/Gracie adorableness. Tami is busted again! OMG Noelle’s parents being against Smash because he’s black! Tami and Coach “not fighting”. [“Buddy’s here. He’s got a box.”] Poor Buddy! He’s adorable in this episode! Carlotta/Matt are a bit adorable! Oh God I remember the start of this Smash storyline! I think this is the only time we see Coach/Tami in their garden like this. Poor Tim! Awwh Buddy/Santiago <3 <3 <3. [“She didn’t even turn around and look at me. I think she’s totally over me.”] Awwh Coach/Tami at day care!

2.13 – Wheelchair fight! Poor Tim! Ack Smash. Tami the volleyball coach!!!!!!!!! Tyra/Julie friendship <3. Tami asking Tyra to play volleyball! Poor Tim! Tim on the volleyball court too! I love Tim when he’s made to help out with girl sports. Lol. Buddy/Jason. Tyra’s jealous! Smash/his sister <3. Jason sells a car! Yay! I love the Tami/Tyra relationship <3 <3 <3. Awwh Smash! I do feel sorry for him I this storyline.

2.14 – Matt is all emo! Tyra’s jealous of Landry’s girl. Julie is jealous of Tyra/Tami. Drunk Matt at practice! Volleyball game and party at Tami’s! Awwh Tami trying to make it up to Julie <3. Matt at the strip club! Smash lost his scholarship. Grandma Saracen is adorable, especially in scenes with Coach. Coach pushing Matt into the bath and screaming at each other <3. EVERYBODY LEAVES ME. Poor Jean! Landry broke her heart. Love that lockeroom scene [“You’re the Dillon Panthers, baby.”]. Awwh Smash.

2.15 – Tim and Billy in church! Tami’s high school sweetheart. I don’t remember this AT ALL. Panthers playing dodgeball! Coach is all jealous! Matt/Landry talking about Tyra. Coach/Jason. Landry’s moment to shine. Coach letting the other team score <3 <3 <3. This is the all black college? How is that not racist?! Coach fighting over Tami and Tami just leaving them to it. LOL. [“I was defending your mother’s honour.” “With your face?!”]

I could not remember this finale episode at all. It was seriously like watching it for the first time. I loved it, definitely one of the highlights of the season.

When I first watched the Pilot, I immediately thought that Jason, Lyla, Tyra, Smash, Tim were all in the same year as were Julie, Matt, Landry. I think TPTB only worked out their ages later because there is no way that I believe that Lyla and Tim are a year younger than Smash.

Rewatch: Brothers & Sisters Season 2

2.01 – Kevin on his phone in church!!! Nora’s video message to Justin <3. Nora worrying about Justin <3. I love the change from tension into humour. I had no idea that Liz Tigelaar was a producer on this show!!! Kitty jealous of Rebecca! [“I don’t want nice. I want my mother.”] Nora/Kitty fake smiling!!! I love this Nora/Holly scene at the cemetery when they see the third woman coming!!! Oh I love Walker get togethers. I love Kevin/Jason. Wait, how come Nora didn’t give Sarah her old wedding dress? If I were Sarah, I’d be a bit miffed. Family dancing! Just like in the series finale! Oh Justin ….

2.02 – I can’t believe they opened the next episode with a military funeral! So cruel! [“Great, butchest moment of my life wasted on my sister.”]. The synchronised phone conversations <3. Travis! I love Kitty’s calm rant at him! Lena, Rebecca’s friend was in Season 15 of ER!!! Kitty/Kevin/Nora and the radio show! Lol! [“Take off, I’ll be fine. Or I won’t. It doesn’t matter any more.”] [“Man to man, is there any chance you can get out of this wedding?” “No. I’m madly in love with her.”] Nora/Kitty/Kevin/Justin at the hospital! Justin’s homecoming! Look at that lovely mood transition from tragic sadness at the Justin/Nora to the comedy with Nora/Kitty/Robert. Something I never appreciated the first time around? The Justin/Robert friendship. LOVE. Justin/Nora <3.

2.03 – Kevin/Justin and the bath! Kevin putting on Wham! <3 Nora. Again it occurs to me how they toned down Scotty’s campness in later seasons. Saul ranting about golf! Scotty/Kevin <3. Robert’s ex-wife! Kitty’s eBay Ronald Reagan bobble head!

2.04 – [“Oh god she’s going to be so sympathetic I’m going to have to end up comforting her.”] Sarah/Kitty <3. Scotty seeing Saul at the gay party. Nora guilting Sarah and Kitty into letting her go with them to the spa. Hee they got thrown out of the spa! And they gatecrash the wedding! Oh God the Tommy/Lena thing. No, no, no! Saul’s not gay! Or so he says …. Oh Justin, don’t do it!

2.05 – Kitty’s pregnant! Oh poor Sarah <3 <3 <3 <3. I love Kevin in lawyer mode and that he’s there for her. Ooh that’s a bad Robert/Kitty fight. Halloween at the Walkers. Saul putting his foot in it! ADORABLE Kitty/Sarah scene. Equally adorable Nora/Kitty scene. Oh SARAH <3 <3 <3.

2.06 – Tommy/Lena … NO! Sarah reading stories over the phone to Paige and Cooper <3 <3 HP3!!!! Kitty’s getting married in two days!! Danny Glover! Paige/Kitty <3. Oh poor Kitty <3. There’s this one shot at one angle when Scotty’s wearing glasses that he scarily looks like Rob Lowe. Just this one time. Justin/Lena. That was the moment when I stopped loving Robert so much, when he said he never wanted the baby and never told Kitty. I mean I can understand his POV of course but that’s just so cold and he really should have discussed it all with Kitty before this all happened. Nora/Kitty <3.

2.07 – Love Holly when she’s giving sensible advice like this. I know I’ve blogged about this before but this intervention/ambush scene is one of my favourite moments of the series, especially Kitty’s speech to Justin <3 <3 <3. Sarah’s knitting! I’m sorry but Tommy is in no position to be judging Justin at this point. Ugh, Tommy. Love the family rallying around Justin. Nora putting her foot down with Justin. LOVE that Justin/Kitty scene. Saul is gay! I wonder if this was always the plan from the beginning! I hate that Robert lies to Kitty there. THE HORSES. I LOVE THIS SONG. Justin/Nora/pool <3 <3 <3.

2.08 – [“What about that wonderful song by the Dixie Chicks?” “At a Republican candidate’s wedding?!”] [“”Because You Loved Me?” How Is That A Good Wedding Song? It’s Past Tense.”] They’re sitting around discussing songs they lost their virginity to? Seriously? This is normal for an American family?! As much as I love Kitty hating Rebecca, it was sweet that she asked her to be her bridesmaid. [“Should we hug?”] Doesn’t Nora’s Brodie story replace her current Stan story? Robert/Kitty’s face at the dancing. STEVEN WEBER! Kevin/Scotty <3. Kitty/Sarah/Rebecca dress shopping. Travis/Kitty/Robert at dance lessons! What Robert did for Kitty was so sweet!

2.09 – Robert/Kitty <3. Tommy/Kevin/Justin bet on whether Kitty would ever get married? Ouch! [“Sarah I don’t want the guests thinking about my boobs and their ripeness.”] [“What about this? Our love is like the war – out of control, endless, without reason ..”] LOL SARAH! Nora/Kitty. LOL. I think I’d forgotten how awesome this episode is! I think we’re at the stage now where I’ve only seen all the episodes once before and I’m getting wonderful surprises with moments I’d forgotten about. Robert’s children! I forgot that they came for the wedding. I’m glad that Julia is back for the wedding too. KITTY/SARAH <3 <3 <3. Cooper is so adorable! LMAO Nora/Kitty walking down the aisle! KITTY/NORA hug <3. ROBERT’S VOWS <3 <3 <3. Kitty interrupting the ceremony! [“I seem to have lost my date. I wonder where Holly Harper is.”] Hee Tommy, Kevin, Justin in lockdown. Nice Rebecca/Sarah moment there. David!!!!

2.10 – I’m glad that they passed over the moment the Robert’s helicopter story broke and just started dealing with the aftermath. Nora has a crush! Sarah is dancing! Dude, Laura Innes directed this episode!!!!!!!! The Walker kitchen scene!!! Nora/Isaac.

2.11 – God this Lena thing drags on doesn’t it? Sarah/Graham <3. Nora/Isaac! JASON! Jason/Kevin/Scotty! [“I’m feeling a little entourage deficient.” “I’ll try not to take that comment personally”] Steven Weber is awesome. Sarah speaking Mandarin is the best thing ever! Graham speaking Mandarin! As much as I hate the Lena thing, I don’t hate her as an individual person. Maybe because I liked the actress in ER?

2.12 – Kevin and Scotty’s gay friends! [“C’mon Kevin, we’re Walkers. Let’s go do what Walkers do best.” “Get drunk?”]. Robert’s kids choosing to watch porn! I love this episode for the Kitty/Robert’s kids bonding thing! [“Sometimes motherhood means sucking it up. Kitty go suck it up.”] IT’S KEITH MARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who’s gay! RACHEL GRIFFITHS SINGING CHER <3 <3 <3. Kitty the evil stepmother! KEVIN SINGING!!! ROB LOWE AND ERIC WINTER HOTNESS AGAIN. Seeing Patricia Wettig and Ken Olin together is so sweet. Robert/Kitty/children <3 <3. No Tommy in this episode!

2.13 – Poor Robert! Wait, a 3 months time jump????? I forgot all about that! Man that must have shocked me the first time too! Meh, I hate time jumps! Robert/Kitty <3. Isaac/Nora <3. Forgot that they were actually in quite a serious relationship! Love that Sarah refers to Rebecca as the “new one”. Tommy, Kitty, Sarah, Kevin sneaking into the house. I cannot remember this episode AT ALL. The look on everyone’s face when Nora says she is moving. Golf interrogation! Holly/Nora in the kitchen! Kevin/Sarah confounded by the store-bought food. Kevin crying and Sarah slapping him! Another secret that Justin has to keep! The birthday toast! Nora’s speech <3. Kitty/Nora <3.

– Breakfast for Nora. The Pasadena fundraiser again! Full points for consistency! Kitty answering the door in her bathrobe! The boys surfing and speculating about Rebecca’s sexuality! I do feel sorry for Rebecca here. Poor Holly! Poor Sarah and Ojai!

2.15 – That Robert/Kitty sequence is hilarious. [“Just stay there and marinate.”]. Oh god Justin has a crush on Rebecca! Sarah taking the blame. Feel so sorry for her! [“YOU’RE ATTRACTED TO OUR SISTER?!”] Saul telling the truth <3. Holly rocks in that moment – telling Tommy to get his family to blame her. I don’t like the fact the storyline exits but Dave Annable was awesome in this episode and I love the scene where Justin tells Rebecca how he’s feeling in the cinema. Intense Rebecca/Holly scene. Saul in prison! Forgot about that. Oh GOD this is the scene which bred all the Saul/Kevin shippers. Ugh. Justin <3 <3 <3. Missy Higgins’ ‘Warm Whispers’. Kevin’s proposal <3.

2.16 – Everyone is on their phones! Nora is despairing! Family meeting! Lol Kevin. Sweet Nora/Rebecca moment. FLASHBACK!! Kevin/Dad. Boys roadtrip! Nora/Scotty adorableness. Kitty/Sarah <3. Tommy and Justin double act is hilarious in this episode. Scotty’s parents! Kevin/Nora <3. Justin/Cooper! Adorableness echoed in series finale. [“Kevin, please place my husband’s ring on Scotty’s finger.”] [“We’re like the Mafia us Walkers. Once you’re in, you can never get out.”] Poor Sarah! No One believes her about Ryan! Saul’s coming out moment! LOL! [“My God this is like the gayest week of my life.”] Just the way Justin says that cracks me up! Robert/Kitty <3 <3. Kevin figured out the Ryan clue!
