  • A good episode that showed how relationships had changed.

    8.9
    This was a pretty good episode. I enjoyed watching the revelations that came across in this episode. Nina:

    Jake asks Nina out on a date. She refuses at first but after Andy tells her she made the right choice in saying no she decides to accept. She goes out with Jake and he says she's had her guard up all night and she tells him what she wants in a man and realizes that it's not Jake she wants it's Andy.



    Bright: Bright is still struggling with the reality outside of highschool and it comes across in a way that is ddestroying his relationship with Ephram. They keep missing each other and tensions build with both of them. They end up in a huge fight. Bright tells Ephram he is just too impressive and has too much going for him and Bright has nothing going on right now and he's not gonna be able to live up to Ephram. They decide they just need to give it some time. They sort of have a guy break up.



    Andy:

    Andy finds out that Delia is growing up and that the woman who he fusses out is really Everwood's reisdent Saint and currently taking care of her husband paralyzed by a stroke. He finds a treatment that he thinks will help her husband's condition.



    Overall a very good episode but not the best that everwood has done.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • After talking to Nina, Andy goes back to work leaving his food untouched on the bar.

    • Nina first realizes during her date with Jake that she is in love with Andy.

    • Delia kisses Charlie Hayes during her birthday party.

    • This episode is about Delia's 11th birthday party, so her birthday is in September.
      We learn that Andy invented a fissure clamp to use in brain surgery, which is why he is so wealthy.
      John had his stroke at age 38, five years ago, so he is now 43. The Hayes family moved to Everwood 15 years earlier.

    • Dr. Brown talks with Amanda Hayes about stroke recovery, and how one particular case was favored by the patient being left-handed, and about the importance of tackling the left hemisphere (of the brain). That's fundamentally wrong, since the connections to the brain's two hemispheres are actually crossed. Therefore left-handed people rely more on their right hemisphere, and vice-versa.
