    A great episode of Grounded for Life and we got a lot of development with Lilly & Brad. My only complaint is that I wish things would have wrapped up better, things seemed unfinished in a sense by the end of the episode. I would have liked to see more scenes at the party, and the whole idea with the fire really brought you in, but it was somewhat disappointing that there was no fire. I mean knowing Sean Finnerty.



    He would have done anything to get Lilly out of Brad's house. As this episode started, I imagined Sean kicking a candle causing a small fire to alarm the kids, but instead it was a false alarm. I know these expectations are too much to ask for, considering it was still good, but I would have liked to see that.



    Other than my one and only complaint, this episode was really good, and anyone that likes to see the awkward Brad character will be in for a very enjoyable episode. The whole scene with the condoms in the end was absolutely hysterical, I love this show's humor.



    Nice ending, we got a try at a heartwarming moment when Lilly asked to be cared for less but Grounded can do better, and we all know that. Great episode overall though.moreless
