    The show always seems stronger when Kitty is around. Therefore, I was glad to see Calista Flockhart back after not being featured in the past few episodes (she has only been in about half the season's shows). I think Rachel Griffiths (Sarah) has been doing an excellent job with the parentage story, and it's been the best material she's had since Sarah and Joe broke up back in season 2. Meanwhile, we have seen Scotty and Kevin start their own family, and I really like having them parent not one but two kids. The young girl that the producers hired to play Olivia (Isabella Rae Thomas) is just right for this role, and her facial expressions are tender and say so much. The Nora-Brody relationship has taken on continued dimension, and again we've been treated to some scenes of Young Brody and 19 year old Nora, helping explain the backstory more. Plus, Justin seems to be getting a bit of romance! Overall, it was a very good, satisfying episode.
