  • Grace goes on the pill.

    This episode was not as good as the last episodes, but still was really good. Ricky continues to pursue Amy, while calling Grace & Adrian. It's good Grace gave up on Ricky, and didn't answer his phone call. Ricky decides to sabotage the adoption, and it works, when the gay couple decide not to adopt the baby. Looks like Ricky's plan worked. Adrian goes on a date with her step brother, even though that's wrong on some levels, it went well for Adrian, she came in to self realization, that a date isn't sex. A date, is a night out, not it. And I'm glad she's finally learning that. Grace going on the pill was hilarious, and she still isn't over Ricky, and that's why they both pursue him in the beginning, but by the end of the episode, they're both got bigger things on their mind. Every guy calls her just because she's on the pill. The Jack/Duncan/Shana storyline is annoying. Ben being ready to take Amy back was perfect timing, and Amy still hasn't learned her lesson, as she still doesn't want to take him back, after she realized in the last episode that she needed him. I think Ben matured on their time off, and it looks like by the end, that they're getting back together. Thanks to Ashley, who also was talking to a new guy (and almost smoking) Great episode.moreless
  • Eighteenth Episode

    Ashley meets a new friend Thomas at the bus stop while shes waiting to meet Ben to try and get them back together. Ricky shares with this therapist that he doesn't want the baby to be adopted and tells him that he will go along with the adoption until the very end when he doesn't sign the paper and uses his parental rights. Ricky meets with the gay couple that may adopt his and Amy's baby. Donovan and Leon are kind of overwhelmed with the baggage that Ricky has and gets to thinking that if they don't adopt Amy's baby the baby will still have a home, so, they want to help foster kids who don't have any home.

    Great Episode 8.5/10moreless
  • Ricky tries to block the adoption.

    The Secret Life of the American Teenager is really coming into its own as the show has been on fire for the past few weeks. The ridiculous school drama is kept to a minimum and they actually have managed to create a love triangle that seems fresh and original, as opposed to overplayed and redundant.

    And the comedy from Tom, George and Ashley is still there as always. You have to love the George and Anne exchanges, as they just play off each other perfectly. Brenda Hampton has always been good at scripting for parents, and that is evidenced in this episode.

    Let's hope Secret can keep this momentum going.moreless
