When Deja asked her mother if she'd like to join her to bake some cookies, I almost lost it. IF any member of my family would attempt to bake cookies during the time I was preparing the Thanksgiving meal I would lose it. Yes, my kitchen is fairly small and almost every space is being utilized during Thanksgiving preparations, but so is Beth's. Beth had the patience of a saint in this episode, for a number of reasons.
I love Uncle Nicky. Glad he's around for his family now. Griffin Dunne is outstanding as is VietNam Nicky.
Uncle Kevin is the BEST. Love how he interacts with his nieces and little nephew. In fact, Kevin (Justin) is becoming my favorite character on this show. Sorry, Jack (Milo). Very sad to say you've been replaced unless the writers have some big plans for you.
I'd love for Kevin's wife (baby mama) to be someone entirely new to the story and NOT Cassidy. It would certainly be a surprise.
I care about Deja but wouldn't mind less focus on her for a time. I would love to see more in-depth storylines that would include Randall's two other daughters, too. Yes, they've begun with Tess. I know.
I think the cabin featured in this episode IS the Pearson Cabin we saw in the first season and not a different one Kevin purchased.
