Stupid Olympics. Making me wait for more Parenthood. But for this week’s episode, let’s just break down the three major plots from this week:
Julia/Joel – The moments feel real. Everything feels real, except the justification for it all. I’m sorry, based on who we know Joel to be, I don’t think that he would go crazy before TRYING to make it all better. I don’t believe that he would be willing to tell his kids (in a wonderful scene) before actually trying to mend what is broken. I just see plot/drama over characters.
Zeek/Camille- I hate other people who have vacation hang overs. The way she was trying to introduce Zeek to prosciutto? Ugh. But Camille hasn’t been away… well, ever. Her husband sees how happy she is and how much further away he’s getting. He’s making a decision to sell the house to save everything. It’s beautiful.
The last scene really pulled everything together: What the house means to them all as a home. It’s a place where they can always come back to and feel safe. It also shows Camille what she’s missed while she’s been away. She still feels a deep responsibility to all of her kids and grandkids.
I’m excited to see where this all goes.
Keep on Watchin’!
