Julia ever the high achiever expects the same for everyone and when her and Zoe had the fight I thought that was it but Julia did not let it go and at the end Zoe decided that if Julia was willing to be there for her no matter what that she should accept it as Zoe really has no one else in her life that cares about her. I think that Julia will get pregnant (eventhough the odds were pretty much slim to non) and that Zoe will keep her baby but still remain in their lives.

This is one of my favorite shows on tv. However I do not like Haddie or Christina.
I knew that Haddie would run and tattle on Amber. I guess I should not have been surprised that Christina would drive 4 hours round trip to get her. Amber is and adult and at 19 she is mature than most 19 year olds, Bob is 28 which is SO not a big deal and I bet if Christina would have called Sarah, Sarah would have told her to mind her own business! I was however shocked at the way Christina talked to Bob, if I was him I would have fired her on the spot!
I liked the scenes with Zeke and Crosby. Crosby continues to be my favorite Braverman.

I also thought this was a poor episode - the next natural step, really?? Ridiculous...I think this relationship is becoming more unrealistic as it goes along....Amber and Bob is really disgusting...he is just scary looking and totally taking advantage of Amber....didn't wait long to get her into bed....Drew was great in this episode while it was incredible that Haddie actually ratted Amber out on a suspicion....I do not think Christina overreacted at all - I thought she was great and her acting in this scene was strong and convincing....hope next week's ep is better!

On another related issue, I'm anticipating that the mismatch in their "images" (he's the all-American boy next door and she's definitely not the girl version of that) could become an issue in his campaign. Not that it should, but I'm guessing it probably will. He seems like a good guy, though.

I was confused as to why Amber would pack for the trip in front of Haddie. Even if she felt like Haddie would "have her back," this was still a very risky thing to do. Plus, it seemed too contrived for the purposes of the plot line. In my opinion, Kristina was a bit out of line to barge in and order Amber to leave with her, even though she's right to be concerned. It's reckless of Bob to get involved with his assistant, regardless of her age. She's an adult and they both have the right to choose who to be in a relationship with, but they're both playing with fire considering his line of work and their professional relationship. With the good head she generally has on her shoulders, I'm surprised Amber wouldn't just leave the job so that they can pursue the relationship in a less ethically-questionable way.

Yes this episode was troubling. I am a huge Lauren graham fan from Gilmore girl days, but her character in this series has me going "wtf"? The next logical step is to get married, not have a baby. But maybe Sarah is soooo concerned with being older than mark, she's fast forwarding. I have a feeling mark will end up putting the breaks on which will lead to a break up. This whole relationship feels forced and awkward, just like drew said.
Amber and bob. Love them! I don't see the issue with them dating,as long as she doesn't work for him. Most of these politicians have young wives anyway, but she should not date him while he is her boss. Christina overreacted s usual. Why not wait until Monday and have a heart to heart with her about dating a co worker? Especially one running for office. Amber is an adult, this isn't a huge scandal. Bob is allowed to have a social life,even if she is younger. I am excited to see where this goes, I hope it's not the end of "bamber".

What is going on...
Mark and Sarah trying to have a baby is insane! Poor Drew, feel bad for him, although I thought his performance was outstanding!!!
Bob and Amber's relationship is inappropriate...he's in politics, he should know better than to start a relationship with a 19yr old co-worker. I do think Kristina over reacted.
I don't know why Julia is trying to hard with Zoe, I just think the whole story line with Zoe is weird.
Parenthood please get better!!

Mark and Sarah could have went to Machu Picchu (or wherever) first too. It's not like they'd take a 2 year trip. They could try to conceive on the trip anyway.

I really don't understand what the heck Sarah and Mark are doing. Ok, so they want to have a baby, but ... like you said, how about moving in together? Or, at least having a discussion about getting married.

Sure, there are plenty of people who have a partnership and relationship without getting married. And, I can see them falling into that category, but at least have a conversation about it.

Where are they going to live if they have a baby? And, how does Drew fit into that picture? He basically lives with his grandparents now, will Mark move into the garage, shed, whatever it is that Sarah lives in now? Weird, very weird.

A lot of the storylines were needlessly complicated or handled badly/awkwardly. Bob shouldn't have a romantic relationship with his employee. Kristina shouldn't have jumped to the right conclusion immediately and shouldn't she have told Sarah? Julia and Joel would be better off not adopting Zoe's baby. The whole storyline has been inappropriate and needlessly complicated. There's other ways to create drama than tease us with a "will she or won't she give up the baby?" The immediate pregnancy storyline made no sense. Move in this episode, skip an episode, talk to the family, and then start trying to get pregnant! Does Sarah not know Drew? Drew hardly talks to anyone besides Amy but Sarah thinks it'd be great if he spent 1-on-1 time with Mark?!
