Episode Summary

A Piece of the Rock
Mona Richards, a family friend of the Carvers, arrives in town with her daughter Riley. Will and David discover that Mona owns a piece of the mountain and that Colin is hoping to buy it from her. The brothers hope to convince Mona not to sell by reminding her how much David Sr., her former lover, meant to her. They find this task difficult since Mona was scorned by David Sr. after he cheated on her with another woman.

Meanwhile, Mona's daughter Riley surprises everyone with how much she's grown. Once a gawky, nerdy little girl who used to hang out with David all the time, she has now blossomed into a beautiful, sexy young woman hoping to spark a romance with her childhood friend. David, trying to remain faithful to Max, finds it difficult to be around the newly transformed Riley since she's constantly flirting with him.

Sam is shocked when his father Ted, a recovering alcoholic, announces to him that he has invested Sam's college fund in a new business venture. Ted is hoping to start a microbrewery and sell beer. Shelly instantly sees that this is a bad idea but Sam sees it as an opportunity to get close to his troubled father. Shelly realizes how much this means to the Tunneys so she recruits Michael to apply his business education and help out.moreless

    "A Piece of the Rock" continues the two story line format initiated last week. Regular cast members played off the three guest stars and provided an entertaining hour.

    Riley with her theme song (Extraordinary girl" from Green Day's "American Idiot" CD) is just campy enough to be hilarious. Mona provides balance for Riley.

    The conflict introduced in the Max/David relationship rang true to their characters without being too over the top and adds spice to their story.

    The story line that introduced Sam's father, Ted Tunney, protrayed by James Masters (Spike from Buffy and Angel)added breadth to Sam's character and facilitated a return to the pre-"Masquerade" friendship between the Sam, Shelly and Michael.
