  • Another great episode.

    Apart from a few exceptions this season of Brothers & Sisters has been brilliant. This one continued with that theme as we see Kevin deal with his actions as a teenager and Nora in denial about his birthday dinner.

    It was funny how everyone kept telling her to give up but she didn't. I'm glad Kevin did finally arrive and there conversation was very well done.

    Narrow Lake definitely does have me interested...we'll see where that ends up. Robert going for a new job was a little out of the blue...future storyline perhaps? The Sarah/Luc thing is a little odd to me...can't they just get married? I know the writers obviously don't want to rush their relationship but come on already...

    The ending with Scotty and Kevin finding out they will probably be parents was a nice ending. Hopefully the next 4 live up to this seasons standards.moreless
  • Another good one

    In this episode of, Brothers and Sisters, the following happens. We see that Ojai is still in trouble and that Holly won't use Rebecca's money to save the company. And so Rebecca transfers the money herself, which makes Holly really upset. Robert goes for a job interview, but unfortunately due to his heart problem, he doesn't get it.

    Nora throws a birthday party for Kevin even though she knows he isn't coming. But he does turn up and she calls everyone to come back over, for the big family dinner. As we see them all enjoying the birthday meal, Kevin gets a phone call from Michelle. The procedure has worked, she is pregnant, or at least she is half way pregnant.moreless
  • On the eve of Kevin's birthday, Kevin tries to forget about his past indiscretions. With the support of his family, they surprise him with a party since it's his 39th birthday. Meanwhile, the Walker men confront Dennis York. Ojai faces financial problems.moreless

    This was an okay episode. I loved the ending where Kevin showed up at the party and everyone was happy and then the surrogate called and everyone was just so happy. I'm so glad that Robert didn't get the job offer but I am curious as to how he will leave the show, and what it will mean for Kitty. I'm sick of Luc's on-and-off appearances. Either make him stay, or make him go! I wish Sarah could finally find the right guy. I feel bad for her. I hope Kevin's depression is finally gone too, but I can't believe William Walker was that much of a jerk! To think his son was weak! Please!moreless

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Sarah: Mom, what's wrong with you? Robert and Kitty might move to Washington and take their grandson with them. Our family business is about to be sold off for a fire sale and I don't seem to be able to stop it. The man I love is going back to France. I don't know if he's ever coming back. And guess what, mom. Your son is not coming to dinner tonight. So, for God sake, would you just stop chopping the carrots? Carrots are not important right now.

    • Scotty: God, I wish I had a mother like you.
      Nora: Well, I wish Kevin felt like that.
