Brothers & Sisters Round Table: "Leap of Faith"
Sometimes, you gotta take the plunge, even if you don't know just how smooth the landing will be. This was the theme of "Leap of Faith," last night's Brothers & Sisters.
Below, TV Fanatic staff members analyze some of Sunday evening's many developments in greater detail in our weekly Brothers & Sisters Round Table discussion ...
1. What was your favorite scene last night?
The Barnacle: Obviously the mad dash to stop the wedding, compounded by Kitty setting off the security alarm. Funny stuff. Somehow you knew that was coming ...
M.L. House: Anything with Rebecca and Justin. I was sure she would blame Justin, or take her frustrations out on him, for not wanting the baby. Very glad she did not.
L.J. Gibbs: Robert and Kevin's parting of ways. Almost too cheesy to be touching, but come on, if you can't love that male bonding, there's something wrong with you.
2. The Ojai/Dennis York mystery: Intriguing or boring?
M.L. House: I like it because it's bringing Nora and Holly together. This relationship has always been among the most interesting and complex. This gives it a new dynamic.
L.J. Gibbs: A little of both. Nora is freaking me out with her obsession with York. Is she scared? Is she letting on everything she knows? Her answers are like Ben's on Lost.
The Barnacle: It's wearing thin a bit. At this point, it's hard to envision a way in which this long-awaited reveal isn’t anti-climactic by the time we find out what's going on.
The Barnacle: Yes. High heels to a gun club? Hot, sure. But so not Kitty.
M.L. House: Definitely ... Now all she has to do is replace her with Kevin!
L.J. Gibbs: I'm going to say no, but only for my own benefit, since I loved watching Calista Flockhart and Cheryl Hines' constant sparring. I really bought her as a politico.
4. Should Sarah marry Luc?
The Barnacle: Yes. She already tried to part ways with him once before and it didn't take. This is a sign. Follow your heart, Sarah, and the details will all fall in line.
M.L. House: If only to give us a season finale wedding? SIDE NOTE: Why didn't she try to call him to declare her love? Is he the only guy on Earth with no phone?
L.J. Gibbs: No way. I'm actually not a huge fan of this going beyond a fling. Gilles Marini is great but I don't see him fitting into the long-term fabric of the series.
5. Any theories about Robert’s job, Luc and Sarah, and/or Narrow Lake?
M.L. House: I'm going to predict that Luc and Sarah don't actually tie the knot, much as some people would love it. As for Kitty, I think she'll win. She has to, right?
The Barnacle: Did Nora have an affair with Dennis - and did he try to blackmail her the way he did Holly? Narrow Lake must have some significance like that for Nora.
L.J. Gibbs: Whatever dream job Robert wanted to tell Kevin about might be connected to Rob Lowe leaving at the end of this season. Maybe it's in D.C.? Or abroad?
