    This episode was basically the aftermath of Ben sleeping with Adrian. I think my favorite scene is when Adrian realized she was wrong about Ricky & Amy. In the very, beginning, when Ricky says he just kissed her, that was a great scene, Soon after, Ricky runs away and no one knows where he is. Meanwhile, Jack, Henry & Alice console Ben on what he has done. The funniest scene is when Grace was "consoling" Adrian, and basically making her feel like crap! Hilarious. It's nice to see that Grace still has feelings for Ben. Amy doesn't take the news well about Adrian & Ben, so she goes to see Jimmy, to confront what happened that night, to see why he hasn't called. They get back together. George & Anne go to marital counseling, while Ashley continues to see Grant. This episode was just everyone's reactions to Ben sleeping with Adrian, so I couldn't rate it as high. Good episode.moreless

    I'm rewriting this review because the other review was meant for the last episode instead of this episode. Amazing episode. Secret Life of the American Teenager is just starting to get better. The actor who plays Ricky is amazing. I liked how emotional he was at the beginning of the episode, and I love the drama that he adds to the show by disappearing. I also love how the reveal how Ashley feels invisible. I think the writers should continue that storyline with Ashley. I like the speech Lauren's father gave to Anne. I love Grace's bad attitude in this episode. And I love how Ben is becoming a bad boy. I give this episode a 8/10.moreless

    It is funny when a show actually admits it made a mistake. They could have played up the Ben and Adrian affair a little bit more, but I think the writers regretted the decision to have them sleep together and wanted to try and resolve it as quickly as possible.



    Think of it like this: a year ago Ben was just a geek, and now he's had three ladies interested in him. That shouldn't happen overnight.



    At least this was better than last week's travesty of epic proportion. I liked it though, and am excited for next week's finale, I hope at least.moreless
