Episode #4.9
10 May 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Another great episode. I really liked the confrontation Michael and Brian had. Justin fans say that he messed it up between Justin and Brian by telling Brian that they know about the disease. But he was also the one who told Brian that his actions are unreasonable and gave Justin a better understanding of why Brian acted the way he did. The scene between Justin and Brian at the end was also great. Very good dialogue and acting.

It was also fun to see Ted getting the client by impersonating Brian. I did laugh a lot at the scene in the bathroom.

Emmett was totally sweet in this episode. I love his character And it is interesting to see what will happen with Lindsay and that artist
