The Brothers Grim (#2.17)
14 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Trey is out of jail and calls Ryan to pick him up. Sandy suggests Trey stays with them for a few days while looking for a place. Ryan suspects Trey of stealing and he goes away after showing the proof that he didn't. Ryan goes to pick him up again. Zach is back from Italy. And after Caleb cheats on paying the briber he shows Julie's video in the middle of the event.

I really liked the episode. I liked how it went with Trey. I was sure they will make him the bad guy that never changes. So having Ryan understand that he is prejudiced to his brother who might have going a better way was awesome. Of course they may still change it in the next few episodes, but at this point it was greatly done..

Also the story about Caleb and the video was pretty awesome, especially how it ended up.

The only thing I found stupid was how Zach's mom told it all to Summer. Who in their right mind would tell this things to the ex of a relative or a friend???
