They say age is just a number and on Franklin & Bash Season 4 Episode 8, those numbers turned out to be surprising. Like how Jared and Peter took a mental age quiz and were scored as age 13…combined.
Well, I guess that really isn't all that surprising. But as they fought the system that said 36 year old Danny couldn't remain in the age restricted complex that he called home after his grandmother died, it became clear that age had little to do with maturity or lifestyle.
Danny's pal Falcon was in his 70s but was attempting cannonballs off of rooftops and setting his chest hairs on fire. The man needed to find a frat house, not a senior citizen community. The adoption application was just the type of silliness that we've come to expect on Franklin & Bash.
But one of the better arguments of the episode was whether Peter or Jared was the other's sidekick. Even the Judge seemed to get in on it in this Franklin & Bash quote…

Which one was the dog was never actually determined but it begs the question…is there a Batman and a Robin in this dynamic duo? I say no. If ever there were true partners it is Franklin & Bash.
Speaking of partners, Karp and Anita did better than I expected. He didn't hit on her once and he actually let her argue her case in court. Surprisingly, Karp let Anita spread her wings a bit where Peter and Jared have been holding her back.
Plus, she challenged Damien to truly fight for his client and he took the bait. These two might make an interesting duo all their own…and who doesn't like a girl who's a Game of Thrones fan.
Swatello and Jared were still on the outs although they were obviously quite miserable without the other, despite how they try to hide it.

Someone might want to check her home or her desk drawer for that doll. I wouldn't be surprised. Swatello definitely needs a girlfriend to confide in and at this point I don't see anyone other than Anita available to take on the job.
Back home at the beach house in Malibu, Peter was chiding Jared about his love life. Do you think Jared and Swatello will get back together? Should they and if so, how soon?
