I've always liked Eddie ever since the first episode when he had to eat alone in the bathroom. There are times that Eddie acts like a dick; but it's probably because the real Eddie is a dick, so I wave it off.
I've never liked Jessica and her "tiger-mom" antics. When Evan became her mini-me, I started to loathe him too.
In this episode, she tries so damn hard to not admit that she misses Eddie--her son. In the episode where Evan has a fencing contest, Jessica tells Eddie to stay away from her perfect son (his brother) because Eddie will be a bad influence. She hates him because he refuses to be molded in her image.
How she acts is beyond the pale. Eddie isn't a mouthy kid who drinks and does drugs. He's stealth smart and very thoughtful. He surrounds himself with nice, loyal friends, including Trent who works hard for Louis.
Re: Louis and Jessica's success. I thought that Louis wanted to move to Florida to open a restaurant, but Jessica was hesitant. So far, Jessica got bored with her real estate business, got a publisher to print her terrible novel, and spent her and Louis's 401K to massage her ego in academia. She has a business degree from Maryland, so maybe she should have used it.
I just don't see how Jessica was successful when Louis is the reason why the restaurant is successful.
And Grandma is still the OG.
