As Brock said, at his house she could be the kid she's entitled to be, instead of being regarded as the second adult (ahead of her sister and brother-in-law who actually were adults) in the household as she was at Reba's. I appreciated the position that Reba was in, in that she knew she shouldn't be bailing Cheyenne and Van out all the time but feeling like she couldn't let them fall on their asses because of Elizabeth. And I understand her being sad and even hurt that one of her kids no longer wanted to live with her. But I thought she was out of line in her reaction to Kyra requesting it and Brock saying yes. That's her father, it's a better home for Kyra, and they're just around the damn corner -- don't treat it as a betrayal. I loved Kyra sticking to her guns and handing over her key. Reba came around, obviously, and she may even have apologized to Kyra (in that family therapy episode with Martin Mull?), but I don't think she ever did to Brock. I felt Brock never learned anything over the course of the series. Even when they focused on him being diagnosed as clinically depressed and how he and his theorpist believed that putting his practice on hold for a bit and trying his hand and professional golfing. Especially, when it was revealed he decided to not do it since Reba was pregnant with Cheyenne at the time and decided to be stable. However, when Barbara Jean felt that no one should be depressed if you are married and happy (she was such an air head about that). Plus add in the actress playing Kyra's real life eating disorder. They pretty much just dropped it all and decided to spend the next season like nothing ever happened. I also never really saw Brock realizing he did some very stupid things, even thinking he made a mistake. He made some real stupid decisions and almost had Van's parents thoughts thinking Cheyenne should go away (as many people in the late 90s believed teen age pregnancy should be treated). However, when the series ended and the stupidity of bringing 7th Heaven back for an 11th season after it had wrapped up. The series felt so rushed that I think given another season with a proper wrap up, we would have seen Brock apologizing and Reba meeting someone new. 1 Link to comment
