Parenthood Review: "Team Braverman"
The theme of this week’s episode seemed to be forgiveness. Will Haddie forgive her cousin Amber? Will Camille and Zeek forgive each others’ transgressions? On “Team Braverman” the family's unity has definitely been tested. The family wasn't even able to get it together for Max's Walk for Autism! Now we just need to wait and see if the waters can ever be calmed once again.
We knew that the problems between Amber and Haddie would eventually result in some sort or altercation. That being said, we are a bit embarrassed for Amber. Can’t believe her cousin ousted her in front of her family. It’s bad enough that you have feelings for your cousins ex and sleep with him, but having your entire family know about your sexual tryst… humiliating. Things are bad enough when you are a teenager!
Does Amber deserve this humiliation after sleeping with Steve? Who knows, we just hope to see these two cousins reconciling. Their argument is affecting their family and also causing a rift between their parents, especially Sarah and Kristina. We honestly can’t say who we side with more, Amber or Haddie. Yes, Amber was wrong sleeping with Steve, but she really likes him. Haddie of course gets our sympathy vote, having your first love stolen by your cousin. She just seemed to handle the entire situation poorly. Whose side are you on now?
Jasmine goes on a dance audition, and if she gets the job has to move to New York. We hope Crosby fights for the woman who he is apparently falling in love with! He must be in love, making Jasmine sea horse tea to drink, how disgusting it that? Hopefully he’ll just propose and make an honest woman out of Jasmine! What do you think will happen between these two?
We can’t believe Zeek finds out about Camille’s affair and doesn’t freak out. We really didn’t call that one. Zeek seems like an egotistic man, one that has put his needs before his own wife’s for a very long time. This actually gives us hope that these two will be able to salvage their relationship. They have been married a very long time, and now that the kids are grown up, they can make an unbiased decision to either stay together or split up solely on their real feelings. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Until next week, here are a few our favorite Parenthood quotes to keep you smiling:

Crosby: If you start speaking in tongues after you drink this am I going to be able to get a hold of Doctor Ting, does he use a phone? | permalink
Adam: A wise man once told me that we always have to forgive each other and not get hung up on the past.
Zeek: Team Braverman. | permalink
