Life Unexpected really showed us the whole meaning and reasons why it is best to tell the truth. As much as it hurts to do so sometimes, it is always better than telling a lie. Lies never stay buried for long and when the truth finally does come out the consequences for lying make the whole situation worse.
Point in case, Cate. Cate had the ability to tell Ryan the truth and decided that lying to him was the better option - even though she had a huge talk with Lux to do just the opposite.
We like Cate and want this underdog to have it all - the loving husband, the great career, and the kid she gave up sixteen years ago to finally really love her back. Right now, it looks like she might not have anything (what will happen to their careers as a morning duo if they are not together?).
"Crisis Unaverted" really was all about Cate this week and the drama that surrounds her life. She really is turning into that type of mother that says one thing and then completely goes against her own word.
Why would she tell Lux that she would be there for her if she only meant it as a stipulation? Lux was basically begging her to do just this one thing for her and even pointed out that she said she would be there for her, but Cate couldn't do it. We were irritated with that, but we know that Cate is still learning how to become a (good) mom.
There were some mildly humorous storylines involving Baze. How awesome was it when he started to annoy Ryan? As big of a kid as Baze still is, it is weird to see him naturally become such a good father.
Since Lux is now down two of the most important people in her life, will that mean she will open herself up to new friends? Jones having the hots for Lux probably won't make bonding with the other girls in her grade any easier.
How great was it to not only see the bong lamp this week, but have it be brought up in conversation? We missed it.
Until next week, we leave you with a couple of our favorite Life Unexpected quotes after the jump!
