While being a little romantic with her, Jason confronts Lila as to what's going on between her and Tim. His roommate tries to advise him on how to handle his situation, too, and the moment bonds the two of them. Tami asks her husband, Coach Taylor, to try and curtail his athletes behaviors after talking to a female student and her troubles surrounding her boyfriend, which gives her the impression that the female students are just meat for the football players; one of which, who happens to be the first string quarterback, is trying to arrange a date with their daughter. Lila also confides in the coach's wife that she had an affair with Tim. Smash turns to steroids after a bad game, and takes a job working alongside Matt in an effort to pay for them.

Underrated episode
31 October 2014 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I've just gone back to watch Friday Night Lights after having been a casual viewer when it was first on.

I was shocked to see this episode has only a 5.9 average. I think apart from a few minor blemishes it is one of the best structured TV episodes I've ever seen, almost like a feature film in miniature. The way the themes are laid out - the fighting, the dishonesty, the desire for approval, as well as the scene near the end with Riggins and his brother - all deftly executed drama interspersed with just enough humor and struggles.

I'm sure there are other better episodes to come given that I'm not even through the first season yet. But this one was a gem.
