    I DVR'd it and haven't watched yet. Do you mean K & S now are being pressured to give up Olivia!? By whom?

    Olivia's brother came back from war and found her. He wants to keep his family together even though K&S are a step away from legally adopting her. Does anyone else get the impression that they might be finalizing the series soon? The writing has a different tone than previous times.
    Yup, with donuts!!

    Yes, I did notice the different writing style. I liked the light, playful banter with Kitty and Sarah, especially when Sarah was describing the outfits Kitty would wear. I kept thinking there would be a Luc & Sarah wedding at the end of the show, that they would just do it! Maybe next episode...

    I'm thinking that they may be doing this in case this show doesn't get renewed for another season.
    I only have a kitchen because it came with the house.

    It sure had, to me, the feeling of a pre-emptive "wrap up."
    (Eerily like a show I LOVED a couple seasons ago, and was cancelled: Journeyman -- which had, as what turned out to be its final episode, a pre-emptive wrap-up, taped before the actual cancellation was made official.)

    It's a show that could go either way by/before May upfronts. It had a last season feel to it last night. We will have to see how the next few episodes go.

    Well, I totally saw that coming with Michelle. As soon as she started acting weird when she saw Scotty near the ice cream store and couldn't wait to get out of there I knew she was hiding something. I'm just wondering how she faked a miscarriage. Perhaps she never went to the hospital and just told Kevin and Scotty that she suffered a miscarriage. Those Walkers... the minute they have a little happiness go their way, something has to upset the apple cart. I felt so badly for Nora, though. She deserves to be happily in love again.

    Re: Brothers and Sisters

    Well the previews indicate that the secret is out, so who knows, maybe she will (have some happiness). I couldn't help feeling terrible for her...she finally invites the boy of her high school dreams back into her bed and he seems to dump her the next morning---like she didn't measure up? Or he was just trying to score? Ugh. The thoughts that must have been running through the character's head.
    I hope this thing with Michelle is just that she got pregnant again soon after and just couldn't bear to tell them... and not that she decided she couldn't give the baby up and faked the miscarriage. I can no longer remember the details of that... did she go to a hospital? Or was it that she just told them by the way, I miscarried over the weekend, so sorry...? Talk about making Olivia feel second rate.... I forget, was it her egg as well, or was she just providing the uterus? If it was her egg she definitely has a claim, contract or no contract.

    I thought not her egg, just uterous. So I guess she dumped him on Scotty & Whiney Kevin. Poor Olivia in the background wondering if they will still want her...what's up with Sarah??? Why can't she just let Nora be happy with Brody? Brody can walk her down the aisle. Happily.Ever. After.
