Episode #2.16
21 April 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

And interesting episode. It is kind of symbolical that Ben and Justin have their birthday's on the same day. We get to see Michael and Brian both take this day in a different way and bothy ends up being a mistake.

Michael's surprise party doesn't go well. He finally sees Ben not being as strong as he has always been. Yet I think that this may bring them closer together.

On the other hand, Brian ignoring Justin't birthday results in Justin meeting the sexy violinist, which will be an obstacle for the relationship of Justin and Brian.
