Let's Eat Cake (#10.2)
30 July 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Kelly deals with her trauma from being raped and Matt tries to help her. This storyline is done very well.

David still played the nice guy. I liked Gina's answer to him though that if he was a friend to her just to get something out of it than he is the jerk. very true. I didn't get the whole thing with her getting him off the birthday party and bringing him back. Did she have regrets? Which is why Dylan said that she did a good thing.

I get that Steve is upset that he didn't find out about the pregnancy sooner, but he is kind of being a douche. And didn't he want a kid before? I have some vague memories about it. Sure they just want to add some drama and then it will all be good.

We also have a nice bonus here, Christina Aguilera in the beginning of her career singing her first big hit Genie in a bottle. Was fun to remember the end of the 90's
