The Episode Review

There were a lot of moving parts in this episode and that made it more interesting. It was good to see Buck and Jee-Yun together. Normally, we see him hanging out with Christopher so this was definitely a good change of pace.

Seeing May and learning that she is adjusting but still happy was also good as many viewers were wondering how she is doing. Hopefully, she and Darius will have a good time and enjoy the bliss of being young and in love.

It was beautiful and moving seeing Eddie understand that no one can prepare anyone for parenting. Many parents can attest that there are many things we never imagined or dreamed of seeing our kids doing. The scene where he shares his thought on this with Carla was refreshingly raw! Roll on the next episode!
