I'll take every Parenthood preview with a grain of salt. This week they tried to make us think Kristina was going to get bad news -- cheap shot. Next week they make it look like Joel is smiling at Julia -- he's probably just smiling at Victor. They're brilliant at cheap shot marketing above all else. I wish I didn't even see the commercials anymore! Hmpf.

A big production doesn't mean a fantastic episode. Sometimes an entire hour can take place in the living room and be grand.

Some of what we saw was conjecture on our parts. We just happened to be right. They could have pulled a Pretty Little Liars and changed everything and that would have been a cheap move, so I'm glad it played out obviously.

The other alternative is that Laurel will die and that will end Oliver and Sara as a romantic couple, paving the way for Felicity. They wouldn't be able to hold it together if they let Laurel die.

Sara hate? No. Disillusionment maybe. But I'm feeling that for a lot of characters this season. Oliver, Moira, Sara... Basically anyone who lies all the time and then expects everyone else to be completely honest with them. I get that the super heroes need to lie to protect their super special identities, but it's insulting to then imagine your secrets somehow top everyone else's. Their sense of entitlement has grown and I'd rather they were a little more humble. It just came to my mind as you pointed it out so I'm not sure how to explain it.

I was hoping the N fell off. ;-) Updated my review to note that thought!

VERY good point about Vincent's family! His nephew was interested in his uncle when he saved him from the fire and saw him in the hospital. It's kind of difficult to believe that the two didn't connect when Vincent started the talk show circuit. Darn -- you're good!! That just makes me angry. So poorly done. What a shame. :-|

I don't think it's likely she "chooses" to return to Gabe rather than she does it out of habit and because she has a key.

I'm second guessing everything at this point. Showing Derek shot seems too easy. Maybe Dylan O'Brien is being showcased as his swansong. It's definitely a worthy performance to exit on.

When you consider that Cat's ALIVE because of that ugly beast inside of Vincent that her parents PLANTED THERE, you'd think she'd be a little more considerate. She wants the beast when it's convenient and she can use it to her advantage. She also learned right quick when he wasn't a beast how easily she could have been killed without his protection. Whoops! She forgot all that.

I liked learning about it, but it went overboard with the amount of time spent on it. Just too much information without purpose seemingly because they enjoyed spending time in period garb.
