  • Poor David...

    9.5
    Ugh, this episode brought out all of the characters' bad sides, but in a good way that was true to their development. Brian's manipulation of Michael played out in his relationship to David, Justin's mistake cost him his living space with Brian, and oh, David... I feel so bad for him. So, so bad. This show made me care about a character who I'd only seen for a few episodes - and I appreciate that. The only thing I felt that was weak was that Emmett's little top fetish in the past episode was never properly put to rest. Other than that absolutely fantastic as always!moreless
  • Mike continues to carry a torch for Brian, but is it too much for he and David? David wants him to move in. Justin takes off to NYC with Brian's credit card after he forgets to set the alarm and the place is robbed. Linze wants to be a stay at home mom.moreless

    David is still pressuring Mike to move in and Mike hasn't given an answer yet. After Brian's place is broken into when Justin forgets to set the alarm while going to his sister's birthday party, Brian gets angry and throws him out. Daphne informs all the guys that Justin took off to NYC with Brian's credit card. All the boys decide to go on a road trip to NYC with an apprehensive Brian, after everyone pressures him into going after Justin. Here while Emmett and Ted are changing a flat because Brian didn't check the tires after being informed to by a psychic, Brian and Mike finally tell each other that they love each other...Brian says he always has and always will, and they kiss. However, this isn't a Brian/Mike kiss, it is a real kiss. I don't think it is right for Brian to play these head games with Mike, especially when he's thinking about moving in with David, but i also think that's part of the reason Brian's doing it. He wants Mike all to himself but doesn't want to be in a relationship with him. I don't think it's right of Mike to be cheating on David, and i don't think it's right of David to pressure Mike. Eventually Mike tells David he loves him but he's not ready to move in, and this leads the two to break up. I don't think it was fair for David to break up with him because he wasn't ready to move in, but i think he realizes the competition of Brian and Mike's feelings for him are too much, so i guess it's for the best. If Mike is going to carry a torch for Brian he can't give himself completely to someone else. Meanwhile, Justin had expressed wanting to come home but is still afraid of what his father thinks. Torn between Craig and Justin, Jennifer tries to get Justin to come home by smoothing things over, but Justin doesn't want to deal with the homophobic rules. Eventually Brian finds Justin in a hotel in NYC, and says they'll find him a place to live back home. Brian and Justin get it on again pretty deep, and Debbie winds up letting Justin stay with her in Mike's old house! Linze expresses wanting to take a year off and be a stay at home mom and Mel tries to find out how they can swing that financially. Absolutely refusing to ask Brian for financial help after he wouldn't sign over his rights, Mel contemplates using her father's inheritance, which was her nestegg in case anything ever happened. She winds up leaving a card on the bed for Mel saying she can take a year off, so i'm assuming she cashed in on her father rather than ask Brian for help. Also when i saw Brian coming up the elevator with the other guy it became apparent to me that he and Justin weren't together. I kind of thought they were because in a previous episode he said that maybe they could make it work. Another great episode, looking forward to the next.moreless
  • I feel bad for Sunshine.

    Now that Justin lives in Brian's apartment, there are rules that he must abide by in order to stay. One procedure he obviously forgot was to set the alarm and lock the door before he leaves. While Justin is taking a walk over to his house for Molly's birthday and to try to mend things with Mom and Dad, Brian's apartment gets broken into. Brian comes home to realize that his computer, his clothes, and even his juicer, get stolen. He gives Justin 5 minutes to pack his things and get out, but with no place to stay. Before he leaves, Justin gets Brian's credit card number, and races off to The Big Apple with it! Brian and the others form a search party to find "little boy lost". After tracking his credit card charges, he finds Justin in a four-star hotel room, where they get...reaquainted (clears throat). With Brian not leting Justin at his place anymore, he moves into Debbie's house at the end of the episode, and all is well again.

  • Brian couldn't have been too upset with Justin for his loft being burglarized. Just watch the hotel scene!

    Brian, Michael, Emmett and Ted take a road trip to N.Y.C. to find Justin and bring him home. The first time I saw this episode I was worried that Brian would refuse to go, but it's clear that at least a part of him was worried for Justin. Otherwise, he would've never gone because Brian never does anything he doesn't want to. Hmmm, do we suspect that Brian is starting to really care for Justin? The answer is yes, and though it was Justin's fault for Brian getting robbed, Brian really doesn't hold him accountable. He even continues his 'relationship' with Justin in spite of it, and they're closer because of it. Justin moves in with Debbie and Vic, ensuring that he'll continue to be a part of Brian's life.



    Poor Mikey, he's so clueless. He ends his relationship with David because of Brian. Oh my...moreless
  • So many events packed into one. It was so amazing. Justin is becoming annoying.

    8.8
    I loved this episode with every ounce of my being. It was truly a friendship episode and the whole Brian running after Justin was awsome. I have one complaint. Justin is really beginning to bother me and that is the only reason why I lowered the grade on this episode. He complains and wants attention. He better mature and grow up fast or he will never score with Brain (most of the time I don't want him too anymore.)moreless
