Episode Summary

The Godmother (a.k.a. Trust)
Returning from the Christmas break, Rose must face the two guys (guest stars Kyle Howard and Chris Carmack) in her life and decide which one is right for her. Marjee realizes she can't be the "other woman" any longer and gives Jason (guest star Julian Ovenden) an ultimatum, and Anne (Kiele Sanchez) fully embraces her fling with Rose's 19-year-old classmate, Zach (guest star Andrew Keegan). Meanwhile, Ginnie and Bob sit down with an attorney to draw up their wills, but quickly discover they have completely different ideas of who should be the guardian of their child in the event something should happen to them.moreless

  • Anne did the responsible thng as we hoped she would. Did Rose pick d right guy? Ginnie and Bob parnoid as usual: they takin this baby thing to another level. Poor Marjee, how did she get herself into this web? Has ne1 ever been in her position- plz holla!moreless

    Lets start with Anne. So, she finally broke it off with that college guy- thats ggod. How long did WE think that it would last? How long did she think? But least there is no hatred between them- so its all good. But she seeing a therapist?! Now thats ironic!

    Ginnie and Bob ALMOST get hit by a falling ac and they immediately get riled. They start making their wills... but the problem is who is worthy top be a parent for their child or children? That was their drama for the episode- for 3 or 4 days. Of course they kweep it in the family, they choose Ann.

    Rose is torn between 2 guys and she has to choose. But she didnt choose the conventional best friend, nope, she chose the badboy Alex. but is that the right choice. Joel told her that if things didnt workout between she and Alex, he would NOT be waiting in the side lines.

    As for Majee, its mostly about she and Jason deciding what to do abiut their relationship-him choosing her or "the boss". He choses her.

    All in all, it was a good episode.moreless
  • Awesome episode!

    I loved this episode.

    Parts I loved the most:

    ~The dad's advice to Ginnie. I loved it. It was great advice when he said, "It shouldn't be the two people fighting with each other. It should be the people fighting against the problem."

    ~When Zach came out of the shower and was like "Hi Rose" and she was like "Hi Zach" and then Anne came out of the shower and was like "Hi Rose" and she was like "Anne?" I thought that was pretty funny.

    ~When Margee and Rose were in the gym. I just love the way Margee says things. I think that she's my new favorite sister.

    ~Bob and Ginnie telling Anne that she was the baby's godmother. That was so cute. I loved when Ginnie was like "You know we have to die first, right?" after Anne was like "I'm going to be the best mom ever. (blah blah blah)"

    Ok anyways so yeah I'm upset about Rose choosing Alex, but I think it will all turn out ok.moreless
  • Finally another episode.

    This episode centered more around the drama part of this dramedy.

    It seems to me that there has been too much of the whole Rose-Alex-Joel trilogy. This is not one of my favorite storylines. It was nice to see that the episode had some other storylines to also focus on.

    I'm glad that Marjee finally gave Jason an ultimatum. It was well past due. This is no longer pre-school. She does not have to share, and definitely not with Trish! Go Jason for finally stepping up and making a choice.

    I'm sad to see the relationship between Anne and Zach end. Yes, Zach was immature and young. In her shoes, I would have made the same decision that Anne did. However, it was so cute to see the two of them together. And them in the dorm shower!? Hilarious.

    Dealing with one's mortality is always hard, as Ginnie and Bob found out. Their scenes were emotional and rightfully so. I do believe that Bob was being a little too hard on Anne, though. He definitely should have conducted his grilling of her in a different manner so as not to hurt her feelings.

    As usual, they leave me waiting (somewhat impatiently) for the next episode. ;)moreless
