  • Kyle goes to school for the first time. Lori has problems with Hilary. Josh gets bullied, and Nicole and Stephan have someone break into their house. They have to worry about this instead of having a nice afternoon kid free as they had planned.

    In my opinion, this was a great episode. I kind of felt bad for Kyle in this episode. He finally figured out that he loved someone (Amanda), then he found out that she had a boyfriend (Charlie). Also, he was under the pressure of being a very smart person going to school for the first time. He had to take several tests. He passed all of them with flying colors except for the history tests. All that I can think about (now, after the finale episode) is the fact that he was just recently "created." He couldn't possibly now anything about the past unless he studied it, which was exactly what he did. He read every encyclopedia once, and very fast, then he went back to take the test. He ended up taking it in less than half an hour, and he once again passed.

    In the previous episode, Lori and Hilary had a fight. Now, Hilary keeps on taunting Lori while doing things such as spilling a drink on Lori's shirt just because Lori was wearing the same shirt that she was. Lori is also having trouble with Declan.

    Josh is in remedial reading. In that class, the teacher asks a student, Toby, to read a passage in a book. He unfortunately can't do it. The teacher asks Josh to read and he reads perfectly, as if to show off in front of Toby. Toby thinks that Josh was trying to insult him. After school, Toby meets Josh and the hallway and tries to beat him up. When Kyle comes into it all, he stops Toby, but then the principal and the Trager parents come in.

    Back at the Trager's house, Nicole and Stephan were planning for an afternoon alone. Their plan gets ruined when Nicole calls Stephan saying that she thinks there's a person inside the house (Tom Foss). After she gets off the phone, she finds out that someone is at the door. When she opens it up, it's Tom Foss, claiming to be a police officer
    who had just happened to drive by just on time to see what was happening.

    This episode was my favorite out of all of them. It had a great plot and it revealed some interesting characters.
