A difficult issue with the boys' teacher prompts him to pull them out of school without consulting Annie, and an excruciating physical pain in his neck isn't helping matters.

  • This episode was a Pain in the Neck!

    7.5
    Annie is away so Eric takes care of the boys. He hurts his neck while camping in the backyard with them. Ms. Margo comes on to Eric and he feels very uncomfortable. He talks to the principal, but she won't believe him. He tells all the teachers and the principal finally talks to Ms. Margo. Ben is here for a visit. Eric learns that his heart condition is worse.



    This episode wasn't too good. It would've been horrible if Ben weren't in it. It was great seeing Ben again! He is always great to see! Without him though, this episode would've crashed and burned. First off, Annie isn't here! What's up with that? Why did she leave? Second, where are Martin and Sandy? They could've made this episode a little better. Third, what the heck is wrong with Kevin? In the beginning, he wasn't even being nice to Eric. Eric was saying how his neck really hurts and all Kevin could think of was a hamburger. Then in the morning, he just kept talking about cake and stuff. That is unlike Kevin. The Eric/Ms. Margo storyline was pretty okay. I can't believe a teacher actually hit on Eric! I'm glad he didn't sleep with her. That would've been really horrible! I also think that Stanley was really dumb. He took Eric's jacket and was smoking and drinking! Eric's heart problem was the big cliffhanger that saved it at the end. This episode could've been better so I give it a 7.5.moreless
  • Eric hard a rough night. I would be scary to, if a big dog came right into my face. Sam and David can not find their dog happy was at Lucy and Kevins house. I think it is sort of funny how sam and david's teacher like eric.moreless

    I did not get to watch the show, but I read the review and it look like a good show. I hope I can see it soon. It sounds like eric hard a rough night and day. It would scary me too if I was sleeping and a big dog came right into my face. Sam and David are scared too because they can not find their dog happy. I was glad that it was at a safe place, because it was at Lucy and Kevins house. I think it is sort of funny how sam and david's teacher like eric.moreless
  • The drama is back!

    So far this season, 7th Heaven has been lacking; something was missing, but now it is here. Eric’s speech to the teachers really moved me; he stayed true to what this show has always been about, he said what everyone in the world has been thinking. Shame on these teachers who are bringing sex to school, whether it is with the parent or with a student it is wrong and I am glad that Eric told all of the teachers this. I am concerned though; that he only said it after he got news from his doctor; I hope it is not bad news. I wonder if he is going to go crazy the way he did last time; it kind of looks like he might. I was also pleased to see Lucy moving on from the loss of her twins. I know that she was going through a difficult time, but her attitude was really starting to bother me. It is nice to see her and Kevin happy again; I never did understand why she took this loss out on him and her family. Ben’s visit was a nice surprise! I wonder what he is there for though? There is always a reason behind Ben’s visits, but only a week will tell.moreless
  • I'm glad to see Lucy coming out of her anger and bitterness over her miscarriage.

    8.0
    I know it's supposed to be normal to grieve over a miscarriage but to take it out on Kevin or her family, espcially Matt & Mary because they had twins, was a little extreme. Fine be upset or envious but telling the whole entire congregation won't do anything.



    I guess Lucy feels that she's ready to move on, when she decided to redo the nursery. I liked that she called it Ben's room and Kevin discouraged that. Little brother can't visit for too long! Funny how Ben walked in on Kevin & Lucy in an intimate moment!



    Cute but funny is that Ben's birthday is always celebrated on Thanksgiving, every single year. I guess it's a way to remember one very special Thanksgiving.moreless
  • Eric takes the twins out of school because their teacher hits on him and he finds something out at the hospital from a doctor that makes him change his lifestyle. Lucy redecorates (what used to be the nursery) with the excuse to turn it into Ben's room.moreless

    OMG! Could Eric have a deadly deasese? I hope it's just a scare ... for both the family and the audience ... I cannot imagine this show without Eric. It would destroy the whole cetral focus of the family in the show. Overall this episode was great, giving Lucy more closure and bringing more suspense into the plot with Eric's visit to the the hospital. Could it be that the guy from the dumpster tricked the doctor and Eric into thinking he was sick just to get the jacket? And where is Ruthie? Bring her back! I personally never miss this show, each episode has new surprises!moreless
