  • The show was okay tonight but it did take a few steps back.

    Well we did take a few steps back this episode but not too far back. I mean a few interesting things happened in this episode. We really were able to get to know a little more about Eddie's Mom that was really very ugly. Cliff really put himself in a situation he did not know how to handle. I did feel bad for Nikki but she did get in over her head. Actually so did Cliff. Liza is really starting to get on my nerves. I do not know if it is the role that's being played or the actress doing the role. Obviously the actress is performing well if it is the role she is playing. Cliff has been way to spoiled and has had mommy at his beckon call. He needs a rude awakening. Johnny and Greta seems to go around and around in their relationship so I do not know about those two yet.moreless
  • Johnny confronts Greta and Nikki finds out what Cliff is really like.

    This was another great episode.

    I loved and was suprised by the fact the Johnny confronted Greta, twice! First about the dress and then about not knowing who to believe, her or Cliff.

    I was slightly surprised by Bob's jealousy storyline, after all they seemed quite happily married, but the explanation was convinving, the flirting should remind him of how they originally met and I thought it was a good addition to the episode, though I was sad for his wife. Not being able to trust your own wife is not a good sign for their marriage.

    I felt sorry for Nikki, even though this things was to be expected. Poor girl.

    Yet another revelation at the end and this time it kinda was a cliff-hanger. What do Maria Nolan and Skip Matthews have to say to each other??moreless
  • Why cancel this show?!?

    Johnny confronts Cliff and Greta about the bloody Halloween dress. Nikki finds out about Cliff's affair with Maria. She is extremely sad. Bob is jealous of Skip when he flirts with Karen. Karen tells him not to worry. Tess tries to make Skip jealous at her birthday party. Cliff is onto Liza. Karen cheated on Johnny's father with Bob. Maria and Skip are seen together talking about a "problem."

    This was a really good episode! Everyone is so mysterious. Skip, Cliff, Greta, Liza, Maria, it's really hard to figure out this murder. (I already know who killed Eddie, but if I didn't know...) I really think Cliff might be the one or Skip. I give this episode a 10 out of 10!moreless
  • These guys are giving me the creeps...

    Wow, more and more possible motives for killing Eddie are unraveling and I'm starting to be really freaked. I honestly don't know who to believe anymore. I thought Greta couldn't possibly have done it, but then everyone's alibi seems to be a lie. And how the heck are Greta's dad and Eddie's mum involved in all of it? I'm telling you, this is giving me the creeps.

    Funny how Johnny be the recovering alcoholic with all the issues seems to be the only sane person in that circle. I truly hope he'll find out before the early end of the season (or is the series' finale?? I don't even know anymore.)moreless
  • i totally loved this episode

    hidden palms is creepy was its also awesome..the part in johnnys room with greta was kinda creepy but im glad he knows the truth and they didnt break up. Cliff is funny and creey in the same time..why didnt he destroy the dress? and the part with greta/cliff/gretas dad made me laugh. plus wtf is cliff doing with eddies mom. i feel sorry for nikki she gave cliff a chance and he blew it.
