  • What a great Christmas Episode!

    9.5
    *JJ and Beth might get back together! Hope is restored! JJ and Beth are the greatest couple! I love the scene in the beginning when they're all waiting for JJ to open the letter from Notre Dame and Will comes running through the house. How sweet! Then JJ goes to see Beth!



    *I don't know if I like Meg and Luke together, but Meg was really sweet in this episode. And if Meg is happy then I am happy.



    *The thing with Mr. Pryor was sad though... It was so horrible for something like that to happen on Christmas.



    *The Snowball fight at the end was amazing! I loved it so much!



    *Roxanne's thing is really sad though, poor girl... I love her!moreless
