Tonight's season premiere episode of Life Unexpected really proved to us that this show was worth another season.
"Ocean Uncharted" did not pick up exactly where it left off last season, but gave our characters a couple of weeks (maybe a month?) to get back into the groove of things.
Ryan, Cate, and Lux make it back from their honeymoon (how cute is it that they made it into a family trip!?) and are awakened by the reality of their lives.
Cate and Ryan have to make due with their producers not being too thrilled that they are not the ever fun loving single people they once were, but now a married couple. So they hire a third anchor to host their morning show, Kelly. Did anyone else catch the way Kelly looked at Ryan? Something tells me, she might play a pivotal role in coming between Cate and Ryan.Also, the chemistry between Cate and Baze is still burning! It may only be on a simmer, but you can still feel some heat there! Since Cate is a newlywed, I doubt anything will happen anytime soon, but I wouldn't be surprised if these two find themselves lip locked - again!
Throughout this whole episode, I felt nothing but sadness for Bug! I mean, who really thought that proposal was going to stick? For goodness sake, they're only sixteen!
Thankfully, Lux had enough commonsense to end things shortly after Bug proposed, but that poor guy never gets a break! I am still rooting for them and hopefully they will able to get back together! (Speaking of rooting for Bug, where in the world is Jones!?)
We also got introduced to two other new characters:
Eric - A good-looking young man who makes Lux realize what she could be getting herself into with marrying Bug. I feel he will likely be a huge game changer in Lux's life. À la Pretty Little Liars, he is the new teacher in Lux's high school! And after we saw the awkward reaction they shared to seeing each other in school, I for one, am LOVING it!
Paige - Out of everyone in the Portland area, the new bartender at Baze's bar happens to be Ryan's sister. Go figure. And could this chick give blondes a better rep? Who in there right mind would throw a lit cigarette into a garbage can? One thing's for certain, she will definitely bring on the drama this season!
So far, the second season premiere definitely confirmed for me that this show is an A in my book. With the funny one-liners and heart touching moments, I can't wait to see what will happen next with my favorite unexpected family.
Until next week, we leave you with a few of our favorite Life Unexpected quotes below and one final question - who the Sam Hill is Julia?!?!
Cate: Word on the street is that you're going to be okay.
Baze: Yeah, sorry. | permalink
Eric: (giving Lux his digits) My number - incase you want to go see something else sometime. | permalink
Cate: (to Ryan) See that's how it works in our marriage. We both wear the thank-you notes and we both wear the pants. | permalink
Lux: (to Eric about hitch hiking) I'm not going to get into a random car - again.
Eric: Buck up, people might surprise you. | permalink
Cate: You can't fix things with me, Baze, because we're broken. And we're always going to be broken. | permalink
Eric: Wow! This place is popular.
Lux: We're closed. | permalink
Baze: Welcome home, how was the moon, that's short for honeymoon. | permalink
