  • Ugh...

    Michael's adoptive father hits him while drunk. When Max realizes and tells Isabel, they decide to convince him to meet a lawyer, their father, so that Michael sets up his emancipation.

    The ending is quite surprising, with Nassedo actually taking the place, through shapeshifting, of his father to make sure no one searches for Hank. Hank being dead and all it could raise suspicion on Michael, Max and Isabel.

    The thing is, some scenes aren't entertaining at all and the scene where Michael cries is just painful to watch and not in a good way. It just feels too awkward. Although Maria's mother's reaction is worth watching. It's an episode saved by its few good scenes and revealing details about Nassedo.
