Looks like I'm in the minority but I actually enjoyed this episode. I wish the show would move all the Pearsons to the same city because I think the show's at its best when they're all together and get to actually interact like, you know, a family. There's enough drama between all of them that they could easily concentrate on that instead of all the random plotlines that they're doing this season. So fingers crossed that Randall and Beth decided to move their family to California as well (unlikely, since he just accepted that city council position, but one can dream).
Though I knew they weren't going to do it, I was hoping that the "will leave you speechless" part was going to be that they killed Kate. Unrealistic, I know, but that would have actually been unexpected.
And yes, there was no way that baby was ever going to be named anything other than Jack.
