  • Amy's plans to leave go awry.

    This episode was pretty good, there was just some definite filler, that I'll start off with. Madison & Lauren competing for a guy they don't like, and much less, Ricky? That was stupid, plus how Madison ended up dating Lauren's brother, it felt forced. How convenient, when Madison was feeling bad for herself, she gets asked out. Through the whole episode, Amy is plans to leave, and her Grandmother visits, while George is trying to stay away, and trying to find a place to stay. Then in the end, it turns out Mimzy (grandmother) has alzheimers, and she can't take care of Amy, so it looks like Amy is here to stay. Ben sees Amy everywhere in his head, when Amy doesn't go to school, and he gets his wish, Amy is staying. The plot that I liked the most out of this, was Adrian's plot, she is becoming more three dimensional, and it's nice to see her life doesn't revolve around Ricky. She gets Jack to help her do her dirty work, if she gets him & Grace back together, Adrian is looking for her father. The counseler gives her, her birth certificate in the end. All the while, Ricky still wants to be a part of Amy's life, but for now, he's getting closer to Grace, and he finds out Tom is adopted, and Ricky doesn't want to tell her about his past, which ends their plot for now. A pretty good episode, way too much filler.
