  • A somewhat poignant episode, showing the relationship between Reeves and his father, along with his realization that life goes on.

    It was special to see Reeves take the first step to mend fences with his father; a son watching this episode could learn a lot about honoring your parents just because they're your parents and not letting past hurts ruin the here-and-now. It was almost sad to see the two say goodbye to each other for what would turn out to be the final time at the airport. But, life goes on, and we are introduced to some new blood and what they bring to the table. Wardell Stone-loud, arrogant, in love with himself. Eddie Franklin-poor but a tough fighter. Paddy Falahey-the token Caucasian who is everything Goldstein wasn't. Teddy Rutherford-the "perfect" one who can dunk, shoot, and makes good grades. And, Jesse Mitchell-who we never really get to know.
