    "The Space Between Us" contains several themes that have been present since the beginning of this series.



    Ava given custody of her sister's children despite her unconventional living arrangement has from the beginning realized that she needed to change her lifestyle. Her decision earlier this season marry Simon was made, in part, in an attempt to provide a more traditional home life for her niece and nephews. At the last minute she realized that she still loved Johnny and canceled the wedding. In this episode she decides that the time has come tell Johnny how she feels. This may be another sign that the series will end with three more episodes.



    Braden's behavior is another constant. Since moving to California he has gone through three intimate relationships. First he was involved with Sarah, a rich troubled girl who got him into trouble with police. Next he was involved with Callie but broke up with her to begin an affair with Erika, at that time his high school surfing coach. In this episode her acts out against Jay who is one of his parental role models and begins hanging around with a group of surf bums. The fact that they are using him for his fame and money is just beginning to sink in.



    Nikki, a high academic achiever, is at an age where she misses the guidance of her mother more that the two siblings. Her fear of public speaking is a sign of her lack of self-confidence that has been shown mostly in her awkwardness in boy/girl situations. Reading the poem to the conference is big step in her growing maturity



    The life lesson present in this episode addresses is alcoholism and child abuse. Nikki's boyfriend, Cameron, lives with single parent father. This week we learn that his father is drinking heavily and has been physically abusing Cameron.



    This episode a slight improvement over last week. I still can't help feeling that the season ender is being set up for a conclusion rather than a cliffhanger.moreless

    This show was very interesting and fun to watch. In this episode Their were family issues between Bradin and Jay. Jay was trying to help Bradin but it never got resovled. Bradin had these groups of friends and they had a party in Ava's beach house, while she was in Paris. Jay caught them eating popcorn and watching a tv program. Jay had a problem aswell as Bradin,but they did not get in a fight, but almost did, but it was tempting. When Ava herd the new she could not belive her eyes. Season2 is beyond exciting and fun.

    I was glad Bradin came back from the surfing gig, but boy did that change him. I actually do kind of feel bad for him because his friends are soooo using him. I mean leaving him with the check? Come on! Bradin did have attitude with Jay and definately needs to change how he acts. Jay and a new woman...kind of interesting to see! I still like him with Erica though! Ewww...Derrek and his hair!...make me puke! That's just gross and he needs to chop it off! Johnny looked good...though I wouldnt mind him with short hair again! Ava coming back right after she finds out something is wrong? Typical Ava, haha. Nikki and the beer...haha that was funny. She like wasnt drunk and then the next minute she was...kind of funny haha.moreless
