    October Road is getting back on track with this very eventful episode. As the season continues, I get sad because I know these are the final episodes of this amazing show. We got the three blind dates for Owen, loved that Pizza Girl made a bet out of the entire thing, most of the dates were rather humorous and entertaining. The Commander could be getting a very scary diagnosis soon, we've seen this on a lot of shows already, but this was still very sad.



    Aubrey's father comes in to town, and Aubrey doesn't want to talk to him, but once Sam tells off Nick, Nick urges Aubrey to talk to him again. Little did he know, that Aubrey's was just going to leave her again as predicted. I felt really bad for Sam here, feeling rejected by Nick, thinking Gavin Goddard is his real father, I liked the scene at the end between Nick & him.



    Hannah is getting some redemption, and I'm glad someone realized how crazy Hannah has been. I loved the scene between her & Eddie. I think I would call that a turning point for Hannah. I still can't wait till her secret is out, or secrets because she seems to have a lot of them. An emotional yet humorous at times episode of October Road. Can't wait for the next.moreless

    I love the scenes between the Commander and the Dean, they are so sweet together. I am glad he went to the doctor and has some tests run, but I was ecstatic that he took her out dancing, so sweet! I felt so bad for Owen on his dates, he had no idea what he was doing. Phil's choice for him was great, he had no idea what to do on that date. Then he ran into Alison on that last date and you can tell he doesn't want to be dating anyone, he wants to be back with her. We met Aubrey's dad, who turns out to be the mystery man she had been meeting and talking to. My favorite line this episode was from Nick when he first met Aubrey's dad, but didn't know it was her dad "Aww man, you're old and crap!". Lol, I loved it. Nick was trying to do the right thing by getting Aubrey to give her dad a chance, but he made a big mistake, because he is just going to cut and run again. I just love this show, full of some great moments.moreless

    Who will Nick choose?: Well with the early drama between him and Aubrey, which was later on resolved and his sudden relationship strain with new-found love, Sam, who knows who he will choose? I'm just joking around. Who knew 8-year-old kids could get so dramatic over friendship. I mean, sure you might want to question Nick's friendship if he hasn't been around, but whoever wrote the script needs to be informed that Sam isn't even a teenager yet, though I'd expect something more dramatic from a teenager -- I'm looking at you Josh Schwartz!



    Owen is one of the most annoying characters this season: Can anyone say otherwise? His constant drama over the fact that Ikey slept with Allison is getting annoying. I mean the first few episode I guess it was OK, but when you say that you're over it, just get over it. And then you go on three dates and you are unable to get anyone of them to like you and poor number three doesn't only get a bad date, but a black eye! Don't get me started on the chicken wings, that was crossing the line and how cheesy was it when that girl just saved him!



    Hannah can't seem to make a decision: She isn't annoying like Owen or anything, but it is taking her a while to reconsider everything, and despite all this drama, she finds time to scold Eddie Lateka for being a hypocrite. At least she made a decision in the end, which didn't do anything for me, but at least one of my favorite characters on the show can move on.moreless

    October Road once again throws up a dead episode for me. Nothing much happened in this episode that I was expecting from the ending that we had in the last episode. Aubreys father comes back into town, but it seems like his exit will be as quick and random as his entrance as it looks like he is involved in something big. Owen once again has marraige problems after going 0 for 3 on dates in response to his wife going on dates. I was so happy when it looked like the waitress at the end of the episode seemed to take an interest in him. I just want this all to go away. We learn that Hannah and (for some reason I cannot remember his name right now) had a thing the summer that Nick went missing and now we just have no idea who the father of Hannahs kid is. Or maybe it really is Gavin and the secret was simply that the two had slept together. Either way - poorly paced episode which could have been written so much better.moreless
