    Phil comes up with the idea of the infidelity tour, which I have never heard of anyone doing anything like that before. I think it is kind of strange actually, I could never do that for a friend, but it made for an interesting storyline. I loved the flashbacks in this episode. I loved how every place Nick took Owen for the infidelity tour he had a memory of him and Hannah. It was great to learn that originally Hannah had planned on going with Nick to Europe the summer he left. This got me thinking, that maybe she didn't go because she was pregnant and not the reason she gave in the episode. It also made me realize, that things would have turned out so differently if she had just gone with him to begin with, he would have come back with her. I loved Sam's reaction to seeing his mom in the wedding dress, he reacted like a typical 9 or 10 year old would. I love the interactions between him and Eddie in this episode. I also loved the whole spaghetti on the moon story, so cute for Nick and Hannah when they first met and were kids. My favorite line is this episode was said by both Nick and Owen "I hear you, that sucks and I'm sorry". Interesting storylines, and great episode!moreless

    Although we didn't get much on the development front, this was still a wildly intriguing episode, that was incredibly entertaining. The last episode focused on the relationships of Knight's Ridge, this episode focused more on the Owen story line, and Alison & Ikey's affairs. The infidelity tour was very original and just a clever plot in the episode. A lot of things about this show are original, but the infidelity tour was really great.



    I think Odette Yustman definitely needs more screen time, her appearance on the show has definitely been lacking this season and I'm interested to see what the writers will do with her character now that Nick doesn't teach at her school anymore. No Eddie/Janet, Phil/Pizza Girl development unfortunately. Like I said, this episode wasn't big on development.



    What was nice to see was the constant flashbacks to Hannah & Nick's past, the possibility of Eddie being Sam's father, and Sam acting out. Owen leaving Alison was quite sad in the end, also did anyone else love the recurring song that played in the end. Is there an October Road soundtrack, and if there is, where can I buy one? All kidding aside, this was a great installment of October Road.moreless

    This episode was really stepping up for October Road, though not much was really done, but the Infidelity Tour was fun to see, and Nick helping out his best friend was really kind.



    Hannah and Big Cat... how I hate the sound of those two getting together. Call me pessimistic, but I just believe Hannah and Nick are so much better off together, and that too-smart-for-his-age 10 year old obviously agrees with me.



    The song at the end was perfect,I really liked it and how appropriate it was for the moment, plus all those amazing and fun to see flashbacks were really helpful in this episode.moreless
  • The cheating tour.

    9.0
    The somewhat weirdly-plotted episode actually turned out to be quite a good episode. The thought of Owen taking a tour of his wife's infidelity didn't have me interested much, but the episode was fine, accompanied by Nick's past flashbacks.



    I'm interested in what the big secret Eddie and Hannah have is, but I think I'll have to wait a long time to see it. I'm sad to see Owen leaving his wife at the end, but she doesn't deserve much in my opinion. A long time will have to pass for them to have something to get back at. I hope they will.



    Sam acting freaky didn't have much effect on me and I'm glad he isn't affected by his mother's changes. Other characters didn't get much airtime. A bit of Janet at the beginning, a bit of Commander at the end, little Phil... and no Pizza Girl. Overall, it's a good episode, but nothing way too special.moreless

    Once again, the episode was written very well with a lot of characters still being devoloped (considering we are only in the 9th episode of the show this is to be expected). I think the flashbacks were used to symboloize the current status of Nick / Hannah being together. Hannah had to let Nick go once and Nick has to let her go here. I think they will be together at some point in the future, but for now I think this epsiode was supposed to show us the beginning for each characters now. Owens infedelity tour was okay, nothing amazing but nothing too boring. In the end he walked out on his wife to go to Nicks house, which makes me wonder what is next for his character. I dont want to see a depressed person stay on my screen forever...I need his character to do something at some point. Otherwise though, the episode was pretty solid from beginning to end - but there was nothing amazing no matter what way you look at it.moreless

    • Owen: He pulls over? He can't comfort her with one hand? One hand on the wheel, one hand comforting? How about no hands comforting? Why do hands have to be involved at all in the comforting process?

    • Sam: So I guess that means you'll have time to open your window business.
      Nick: Yeah I guess, truth is it's something that Eddie and I always planned on doing since we were kids. Best Friend Windows is what we called it.
      Sam: Kind of a dorky name isn't it?
      Nick: We were ten.
      Sam: I'm ten.
      Nick: Yeah, but you're...
      Sam: Different kind of dork?
      Nick: Different kind of 10.

    • Nick: So did you make a decision, we partners?
      Eddie: I have something to tell you, Nick.
      Nick: Okay.
      Eddie: Your not going to like it.
      Nick: What is it?
      Eddie: You spelled friend wrong.
      Nick: Huh? Unbelievable.

    • Nick: All I know is that's the past, and when it comes to the past, no matter how much it hurts, it's done.
      Owen: I get it, I hear you, that sucks.

    • Eddie: Hey.
      Ronnie: Hey.
      Eddie: What's with him?
      Ronnie: He's currently in a "I just saw Hannah in a wedding dress and oh my God she really is marrying Big Cat Cataldo" funk.
      Nick: No, I'm fine.
