The Child Is Father to the Man (#3.22)
5 November 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode is the aftermath of Dylan father's death. We see both his inner struggle and how people around try to make him feel better.

I felt the whole inner Dylan thing was a bit too much, but at the same time it was an easy way to show what exactly he was feeling and how he was about to start drinking again and not feeling well around the people around him. The whole thing that his dad was working for the right side in this case was a good surprise. As I said in another review, making him the bad guy was lazy.

Brenda was kind of making me sick in this episode. While I get that she was trying to be nice to him, it seemed like she was really trying to get into Kelly's place. Kelly having trouble to deal with him was also well shown to us, good acting and the call he gave her at the end was wonderful.

David relating to him with his experience when Scott died was also a great moment. Both what Dylan was expecting and what David said.
