So this was a disappointing installment of October Road, definitely it's first clunker of the series, and I really hope there isn't any more. This episode wasn't terrible but it was just way too cliche. This show has never been cliche, and the drama on the show has always been unique and subtly intense, but now I feel like it's lost it's originality in a sense.
Best friends fighting over their boyfriends? Big Cat, the schemer, and of course, the worst part of the episode, the cupcake kid. I found myself rolling my eyes at the final scene of the episode, with everyone singing karaoke. The girl being interested in Carter, that was the most cliche of all. The rating of the episode plummeted as the episode continued.
Carter joining Nick & Eddie at the karaoke machine? Talk about annoying. Aubrey was also not at her best here either. I didn't like how she was automatically Nick's girlfriend and they didn't even talk about last episode's events. No Pizza Girl, that's definitely another thing wrong with the episode.
The only development that we got here was Ikey working for Big Cat, and usually October Road brings so much more to the table, this wasn't one of those times.
