  • The best and emotional episode of Noah's Arc.

    This episode showed real emotion from the cast. Noah's gay bashing made the others realized true aspects of life. Ricky confessing to Noah that he love him, Alex taking self-defense class in order to protect himself, and Chance taking a stand against Eddie's boss about his job.

    The episode had its sad moments but it also had its good moments. Alex using self-defense move on Trey and Wade beating one of the bashers on national TV

    The episode also rekindled the old passion between Noah and Wade. It was definitely a great moment. Baby Can I Hold You is definite must-see and one of my favorite.moreless
  • Noah is gaybashed in the last episode. Alex, Chance, And Ricky come to see him. But are not let in because there not family. Quincy soon shows up but is not let it because Noah's "boyfriend" is already there.moreless

    This is my favorite episode of the show so far. It shows how much Wade really cares about Noah. I think that Quincy was only helping Noah to promote his career up more. Because to show that you care you don't need to get publicity. I think this episode kind of leaves Noah and Wade's relationship on a cliffhanger.

    It even helps Ricky sort out his feelings. My favorite part has to be the ending and the part where Wade beats up the guys. That waa the kind of thing Quincy should of been doing instead of Wade. I think the guys deserved especially see how they were charging it as a aggravated assault and not a hate crime.moreless
  • Noah heals after being a victim of a hate crime, Alex takes better steps toward protecting himself, Chance comes through for Eddie and Ricky has an emotional breakthrough

    I am really impressed with the way this episode played out. In the last episode Noah was assaulted by three guys at a gas station. Noah was injured pretty badly and we are able to see the true devotion come out of all the charachters. Ricky reacts by taking care of Noah hands on (cooking, cleaning, hanging out); Alex reacts by taking a self-defense class to better prepare himself and similar situations; Quincy the activist starts a crusade and Wade comes in for the rescue. I love the interaction between Wade and Noah in the episode there. Neither of them are focused on the past just the present and I believe it is the most sincere feelings of care and love displayed all season.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: When showing the TV video of Wade punching out the bashers, one shot is positioned directly in front of Wade, as if Wade is punching the cameraman!

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Alex: Child, Gay folks ain't got nobody but Jesus.
      Noah: Not even...

    • Chance: This is maddening. We ought to start bashing back.
      Ricky: Amen to that.
      Alex: You always called bashing back a spur...
      Chance: Spurious catharsis. Because it doesn't solve the problem at a systemic level, but right now I have a need for a little spurious catharsis of my own.

    • Clayton: (on the phone with Eddie) You know Reuel's Bar? Well, get your ass down here. You owe your better half a beer for schmoozing me into giving your job back. (to Chance) And as a rule, I prefer to be sweet-talked by the ladies.

    • Noah: Ricky, I'm fine, okay? Just go home. I don't need you babysitting me.
      Ricky: Yes, you do, Noah. You're not invincible. You could have died, don't you get it? When you were in that hospital, I realized that I care about you so much. (starts to break down) But I've never told you what you mean to me...that I love you.
      Noah: Ricky, I love you too. Now go be with your boyfriend. I'm sure he misses you.

    • Wade: This bottle's almost full.
      Noah: I don't like taking pain pills.
      Wade: Masochist, huh?

    • Wade: Today really took a lot out of you, huh? (Noah nods, Wade starts to break down) I'm sorry. I just got so mad. I wanted to kill those guys. Make 'em feel some of what they put you through. (breaks down further) I should have been there, Noah. I should have been there. I wasn't there to protect you...and I'll never forgive myself for that.
      Noah: (in a weak voice) It's...it's not your fault. It's okay, Wade. (ignores cell call from Quincy)
      Wade: (muffled) It's not...
      Noah: (more assertive voice) It's not your fault. It's not your fault, baby.
