*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Matthew Rhys (Kevin) works well as a director, helping squeeze the laughs out of scenes that other directors may not see as funny. The hilarious encounter between Nora-Justin-Sarah when they are all trying to hide things from each other was truly over-the-top. Later, the show takes a decidedly serious turn with the Nora-Justin-Kevin scene where the truth comes out about Kevin & Scotty's baby AND Sarah's parentage. Many of the scenes in this episode hinge on Dave Annable's (Justin) ability to straddle the line between absurd comedy and tragedy. What a great actor he is. The episode also benefits from a good subplot involving Luc and Saul coming up with a wedding song for Sarah. There was a lot of fun and warmth in this offering. We laughed and we wondered how the latest crises would affect the Walkers, especially Olivia in the final moments, who now has a new baby brother.
