Parenthood Trouble in Candyland
5 December 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Joel: Joel is preparing to leave off to somewhere and Amber comes by with some coffee to maybe get Ryan a job but he does not have any good news for her. She is able to talk him into hiring Ryan. Ryan try's at first with the construction job but finds it hard at first. Ryan finds it hard working at construction and when he breaks some expensive glass he leaves the site.

Crosby and Neighbour: Crosby is talking to a new artist and outside the neighbour gets the car of the artist taken away. Crosby has to tell Adam that their will be a council meeting to solve the problems with the neighbour. Crosby is in the studio with Glen Hansard learning the neighbour is talking with Adam. The neighbour does not seem to want to listen to what they guys are saying even thinking they are using Kristina as leverage. While searching online Amber sees a picture of Crosby peeing in the alleyway. The neighbour and Adam go up against each other at the council but after she talks Crosby walks in with some weird people behind him. He takes the stand talking the council also bringing up other neighbours to talk.

Sarah and Mark: Sarah and Mark are packing for different trips but cannot talk about the problem in their relationship. Mark does still not seem happy she picked over him her boyfriend. Hank and Sarah run into his daughter but his ex wife does not seem to happy about it. Sarah does not find it fun with Hank and laves a message for Mark. Hank try's to talk his daughter into staying but she does not seem to be able to do anything. Hank talks about his problems with Sarah and even brings up her boyfriend having problems with the two of them. Sarah and Hank go back up drunk to the room where Mark has his suitcase waiting outside the room. Mark and Sarah start to fight again when he thinks she was romantic with Hank. Mark walks out of the room and does not seem to be able to handle it. Sarah seems in a hurry when she has breakfast with Hank even though he can only talk about his daughter she does not seem to want to talk about his problems anymore. Sarah try's to talk to Mark at the gym telling him he is sorry and that nothing will happen with Hank. He forgives her and the two plan to have dinner. Mark and Hank have to go down in the same elevator and Hank does not notice how awkward it is between them. Sarah and Mark have lunch where he talks about his problems with Hank. He still cannot handle how she acts some times and walks off.

Julia: Julia is trying to help Victor with his homework but he does not really seem into doing his homework. Julai then says if he does not do his homework there will be no baseball for him. While Kristina is smoking her pot Julia comes to the door looking for some mothering advice. She talks about her problems with Victor not following the rules so Kristina tells her bribing Victor might work. She gives Max candy to get him to do things. Julia try's Kristina's plan and it does seem to work a bit. Victor does not do well in his test so he blames Julia.

Good episode with Sarah and Mark relationship being the best again. The worst was with Crosby because that storyline from last week to this did not work for me at all maybe because the women was too unlikeable.

EPISODE GRADE: B (MVP: Lauren Graham)
