Sandy didn't forget his 20th anniversary. Honest. Just ask him. And just watch him squirm as he tries to make things right. Also, Seth and Ryan are grounded; DJ calls it quits with Marissa.

The Power of Love (#2.8)
10 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is the 20th anniversary of Sandy and Kirsten and Sandy forgot it. They also have trouble to celebrate it because of Seth dating the bad girl Alex and Ryan dating somebody who is almost his sister and they are afraid to leave them alone. DJ and Marissa break up because he feels she just dates him to anger her mother.

A nice episode. Was a bit disappointed by Sandy being so anti Alex just because of her tattoos. He believed in Ryan, shouldn't be prejudiced. but I guess we are all humans, sometimes its hard to not fall for stereotypes especially when children are involved. And Sandy singing at the anniversary was awesome!
