    No matter which sibling we might think was right or wrong, it was good that Beth gave Randall the push to open up the dialogue between the two. They both got to clear the air, get everything out in the open and own how they hurt each other and apologize. That was a win all around in my book.

    Ha, I said this very thing to my daughter when we were watching on Tuesday! I was ok with the modern fruit can labels, that would take a lot of work to remedy. But putting something on the shelfs that didn't exist back then was a pretty sloppy slip for this show. Cereal cups were definitely not a thing then, we had the little boxes with the little wax bags inside.

    I did also notice the focus on Beth drinking and I hope they aren't going down that road. We already have one alcohol addiction storyline. Well 2, if you count Jack.

    I think the focus on Beth's drinking was simply a way to link the present scene with the past scene with William. It reminded her of sitting at the table and talking to him with the same drink in her hand.

    I was thinking something along these lines. I don't think they would give a third character in the show a drinking/drug addiction.

    Ok watched last night and caught up. I had to pause when Beth told Randall about the text chain. I was laughing so hard. LOVED her in this episode the most.

    Didn't think I could love Jack MORE than I already did.

    Absolutely agree. Picking up that bottle carried her thoughts to the last time she had done so and brought to mind what William said to her. When Randall kept blathering on about the latest strong feeling that he simply can't let go of Beth found herself sitting there, spinning her wedding ring. She realized it was the moment she needed to speak up and have her needs be the overriding priority of the moment. Hopefully Randall summons the pieces of both Jack and William within himself and responds accordingly. If he doesn't I'm afraid of the consequences.

    I know Randall will come through for Beth. Seems like he is ok and able to work again. Well, running for office is stressful too.

    Not trusting Kevin's new girlfriend. As always, Beth is probably right about her.

    I don't trust her either. She had NO interest in going to the interview with Kevin when he suggested it. She only wanted to go once she realized who was interviewing him and she used the opportunity to pitch her documentary to the interviewer. Don't like her.

    It was cool to see what Terry Gross looks like. I listen to NPR a lot in the car and enjoyed being able to connect the face to the voice. She didn't look like I pictured she would.

    I’ve starting watching all the episodes over again just to see what clues I missed the first time around and all I can say is that the first few episodes are really rough. It’s so good to see that the characters got more rounded.

    A Political Campaign is very expensive and insanely stressful. I've seen it for myself up close. They've already bought a building and Deja's adoption I don't see how they can realistically afford it now that Beth is not working.

    I was very annoyed because Randall wasn't wrong in confronting her about what she said. And should have apologized to him to for her "utterances" Lol

    Agreed Randall was angry and stepped outside of his point in confronting her about trying to get pregnant and adopting instead. He definitely should have said while I support what your are trying to do it will not make you have more of a piece of our father which is the point he was angry about.

    I did really like this episode. I can't wait to see next week's Turning point for Jack.

    Like I mentioned a few posts ago, I am rewatching the episodes. The next on up is Memphis and I’m not ready. I’m going to ugly cry all over again.

    I’ve also been rereading our threads and we were like detectives the first season LOL

    If you run for political office, don’t you have to live in the municipality? I think Randall’s family lives in NJ. Isn’t the community center in PA?

    In one scene, the coffee maker was too modern. Looks just like the one on my countertop now.

    I didn't watch this one and don't plan to. The show is losing a bit of its luster for me to be honest.
