  • Marco has a gambling problem and goes to jail. Peter is not allowed to see Darcy so they're sneaking around everyone's back.

    This was actually a really good episode. Dylans gone off playing hockey in Swedan or Switzerland. Marco misses him so much and to deal with it, he gambles. I never would have thought that Marco would have a gambling problem and Marco going to jail is WOW! Spinner has really changed. Instead of letting Marco stayed he let the police take him to jail. I'm really starting to like Marco's dad now. He doesn't really mind at all that his son is gay Darcey has changed a lot too. She used to be this good girl and now she's turned bad. She's sneaking behind everyone's back and lieing to her friends. Peter is being sent back to private school now because of all the sneaking aorung they are not supposed to do. A lot more drama in this episode so I give it a 10/10.moreless
  • The transformations of Marco, his dad, and Spinner....

    So Marco misses Dylan for a whole week and goes into a mini-depression leading into a gambling problems that got him stealing from family, in jail, and closer to his dad.

    I liked how when the police busted the poker game in the T-Shirt store Spinner let Marco take the fall and not let him get by. That is what real friends do.

    Peter is getting sent off to boarding school (and off the series, I assume). This is good. There were way too many characters in the show. I also think Darcy is on her way out.

    Hopefully, Marco will realize that he does have to live his own life. I loved the father-to-son talk that his dad had with him. You can see that Marco's dad is trying to get past his homophobia.moreless
  • Tsk tsk on Marco

    So Marco starts to gamble when the going gets tough. I think they need to find him a new lover so he can get over Dylan constantly breaking his heart. No offense but gay guys are so complicated (I have a lot of friends who are gay so I don't mean to offend anyone for that matter.) I'm shocked Spinner knew better as to when to stop gambling and it was weird to see him being against it while Marco was so for it. It's nice of his dad not to kill him for stealing from him if I was his dad I would flip out his dad actually seemed calm.moreless

    So in this episode Marco is all I want an A plot so they give it to him. He's all PMSing that Dylan is gone so Spinner like lets go to Daytona. And he's all ok well i'm gonna get us money by winning it online. Soon Jay is like hey why don't you come play poker with me and he's all like k. Then he goes and wins a lot. He goes back and loses everything. So what does he do? He steals from his dad. Then right before he wins everything the cops are all hey your under arrest. And then he's all Spinner tell them you know me. And he's all no and then Marco get released and tells his dad he stole and then his dads all like OMG.

    Meanwhile Peter and Darcy are all lets make out all the time and not tell anyone. And for most of the episode they do but then Darcy's friend finds them she tells his mom and now Peters off to boarding school and Darcy's all boo hoo for you And Peters all boo hoo for me and they kiss.moreless
