Ethan, already the kids' favorite visitor by far, sweetly volunteers to 'babysit' while Virgina and DePaul attend a medical convention, which they miss anyway because their bus arrived too late. Their father rivals for their affection, but soon realizes Ethan would make an ideal stepfather. Having fired Virginia as assistant, Masters must prepare his research results presentation with near-clueless Libby, a recipe for disaster, and decides to 'spice up' the material. Lilian and Virginia, now her assistant in the breast cancer project, don't even male it to an out of state medical convention, but get inspired to propagate the simple test alternatively.

Phallic mixed blessings
16 November 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

Ethan's setting into his newfound role as a paternal figure to Virginia's kids, and by episode's end, it's all very fairy tale. But given all that's happened over several episodes (with his character alone) just how long will this last? Things have been shifting pretty wildly thus far.

Lillian's sympathy as a character is just sudden enough to warrant a devastating diagnosis; sad though this is, it does feel a little convenient.

Joining her isn't the losing column are Bill and Virginia, whose situation seems pretty dour.

But despite the omnipresent guilt and rifts between characters, this features a terrific ending; sweet and optimistic.
