Nora, Rebecca, and Sarah all hooking up with someone at the Greenatopia party? Say it ain’t so. While it ended up not being so, I have to admit that the opening did open some ideas for an interesting episode. While I am usually not a huge fan of storylines that give a future scene and then all the events that lead up to it, I thought it worked pretty well for last night’s episode. Along with some good plot twists, I think last night’s episode of Brothers & Sisters was a pretty good episode.
The Greenatopia Launch Party: After having trouble at the tech conference (Sarah showed her lack of knowledge for everything tech not having a Facebook page or using Twitter); Sarah, Ethan and Kyle need to make the Greenatopia launch party perfect in order to get the necessary investors for the company to be successful. While preparing the party, Sarah finds out that Paige bought a dress for the party which Sarah finds too “revealing” for her age. Sarah won’t let her wear the dress. Sarah eventually realizes though that she is afraid to realize that Paige is growing up since she doesn’t want to recognize that she is getting older.
The Greenatopia party goes off without a hitch and Greenatopia ends up getting the necessary investors. At the party Sarah keeps thinking that she is getting too old. Ethan cheers her up by telling her how beautiful she is. They actually end up kissing but Sarah stops it since they are business partners and it would just make things awkward. When Sarah gets home she decides to give the dress back to Paige finally accepting that Paige is truly growing up.
Well if this week’s episode is any indication, the Greenatopia storyline will probably be a long term storyline. As a businessman myself, I have to admit that I like the storyline. I think it will me for an interesting storyline trying to build a business from the ground up. As far as the relationship between Sarah and Ethan, I am glad it ended where it did since I don’t think it would have really worked.
Nora Finally Moves On: Nora and Rodger continue working on the center. It becomes pretty obvious that Nora and Rodger have feelings for one another. Nora and Rodger end up going to Sarah’s party. When Sarah tells Nora that she is too afraid to let go and try to move on, Nora decides to loosen up (that might be at least partially due to the alcohol). Nora and Rodger actually end up going into a room for some privacy and they actually kiss. Before anything else happens though Nora passes out. The next morning Nora apologizes for the party and shares her true feelings for Rodger. Nora and Rodger end up kissing again. I have to admit that I am liking this storyline. While Rodger isn’t the most interesting character, it’s good to see Nora finally move on. For once in a very long time, Nora actually gets her own storyline that doesn’t focus on her scolding her children or being an overprotective mother.
Rebecca and Justin’s Rocky Relationship: Rebecca and Justin’s relationship was perfect but now that Rebecca has her new job and Justin is trying to find himself, they start drifting apart. When Justin gets a sponsoree (a woman), he ends up missing the Greenatopia party since he has to help her through a tough patch. This upsets Rebecca since she had a romantic night all planned for them at the party. Since Justin doesn’t show up, Kyle ends up hitting on Rebecca and tells her she can do better than Justin. Rebecca ends up not doing anything though and just spends the night at the hotel. The next morning before Rebecca checks out of the hotel, Justin and Rebecca “make up”.
The Hunting Party: Kevin (although against his will) is forced to go hunting with Robert and some Republican representatives. Robert is trying to get the representatives to back him for his governor nomination. Kevin hates hunting but ends up showing up the rest of the hunting party. It all ends up not mattering though since the representatives decide to back another candidate instead of Robert. When Kevin angers the representatives, he ends up apologizing and in his apology he convinces the representatives to back Robert’s campaign for governor. Now all Robert has to do is actually tell Kitty that he plans to run for governor. I have a feeling that this isn’t going to go down well.
Nora: “Shirlock. What do you think?”
Saul: “You were drooling.”
Sarah: “She’s not going out looking like Hannah Montana meets a call girl.”
Kevin: “Can’t I shoot him now. Cheney got away with it.”
Nora: “I can’t afford my passion.”
Nora: “Your just trying to get your hands on my solar panel.”
Robert: “If you don’t apologize I will take you out back and shoot you.”
Justin (after Nora talks about possibly sleeping with someone): “Eww. I didn’t mean you.”
