The Groundhog Day (#4.12)
29 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

On the Groundhog day Che takes Seth with him to save the groundhog and find out if they really are soul mates. They both end up in jail and there Che finds his real soul mate. On her 40th birthday Kirsten finds out that she is pregnant. Julie breaks up with Frank to try it again with Bullit whom Kaitlin likes as a step dad. And Taylor goes for therapy to stop being a stalker.

I must say I was really laughing out loud with tears in my eyes through the whole Che soul mate thing. I will really miss the character he is hilarious.

And oh man do they propose fast on this show. Julie almost got 2 in one night.
