  • The one before the birthday episode.

    This was a perfect part one to the season finale. I mean it worked out so perfectly. Lilly's birthday is coming up. What should Dean get her. I love how Eddie fit in to the plot so nicely. Yet another sign that shows Dean is not the right guy for Lilly. I can tell you that. Dean is just fake, I cannot wait till Brad & Lilly hook up. The glasses plot seemed like the same formula they have done with most episodes. It would of worked using the same formula for other shows. But in this case, this isn't it. Brad's stalking is getting a little creepy. Anyways great episode.moreless
