Storyline

Cathy, Paul and Adam are getting ready to head to Italy for the Christmas holidays using Paul's cut from the electronics store thefts. They still haven't found Sean, but they feel they need to focus on themselves as a family. They are also leaving behind Andrea who is in engaged bliss to Mykail, with who she will spend the holidays. Owen tells Paul about the imbalance in store inventory, which leads to a revelation from Mykail which could affect his relationship with Andrea. Adam spends time with Poppy before he leaves. But he also finds out some information about Poppy's reality, which ultimately makes him understand why she acts the way she does. And Dr. Sherman asks Cathy to be "show and tell" to one of his classes. She tries to make her reality and the students' reality a little closer together. And just before the Jamisons are ready to head to the airport, Cathy receives a telephone call from Lee, who has an important pre-Christmas request from her. Written by Huggo

Absolutely Brilliant
20 September 2011 | by (Gibraltar, Gibraltar) – See all my reviews

Fantastic episode. For me, it captured the essence of what it was like to be a cancer sufferer, yet to also suffer the pain of seeing a close friend pass away from it. The way Laura Linney (Cathy) portrayed and played her part was incredible, she really showed such incredible emotion. It was a shame to see Lee go when he did, but throughout all the episodes he was in he played a great part. The twist of Mykail being an illegal immigrant as his student visa expired also added to the episode, with Andrea being left in the lurch on their wedding night. And, for the surprise drugs test for Paul, that should leave something interesting for the season finale. It's unfortunate that he got dragged in to snorting cocaine and turning a blind eye to Mykail's thievery, but it just shows that everyone is human.
