Life Unexpected - Plumber Cracked recap/review

The episode started with Cate still yearning for information about Ryan’s relationship with Julia. She looked through his phone and begged Paige to dish. Paige refused to sell out her brother (good girl), and Cate and Ryan went to couples therapy. The therapist suggested that, until their next session, the couple be balls-out honest with each other. What a terrible therapist. Seriously, she wants to open Pandora’s Box with the couple unsupervised, throwing out words and hurting feelings at this fragile moment? This suggestion just led to more fighting, and Ryan left Cate to go have a night with the guys. By “the guys” we mean Baze and Baze’s friends. Suddenly Ryan and Baze are best buddies.

Cate tried to take Paige out, get her drunk, and then question her, but Cate ended up getting the most wasted, because Paige (obviously) can hold her liquor. Cate did body shots and danced on stage. Ryan and the gang had to show up and stop her from having too much fun like a college girl. Ryan and Cate took their dying relationship outside the bar for a talk. Ryan decided THAT was the time, when Cate was drunk and upset, to tell Cate the Julia story. He had lived with Julia for three years and asked her to marry him. She said no, and he still isn’t over her. Cate went home without Ryan. The next morning, they went back to the awful therapist, who suggested that they separate. Worst therapist of all time. Her solution was that the marriage break up, haha. Ryan moved into Baze's.

The Baze and Emma relationship hit a temporary snag when Emma’s long-lost teenaged son returned to her home, dropped off by his dad. Emma hid the boy from Baze and tried to get distance from the relationship. Baze turned up at her house, drunk, hollering that what they had was real. Baze met Emma's son, and the relationship will go on. We don’t care. We’ve decided that Baze and Cate should end up together if the writers can wrap that up and make it happen before this show’s inevitable cancellation.

Lux and Mr. Daniels used Tasha’s apartment as a place to be together, and Tasha was unthrilled, but tolerant. To get out of the confined space, they decided to go out of town on a Saturday together where they wouldn’t see anyone they knew. They went to Astoria, an island, where Mr. Daniels lost his wallet. He and Lux solved the problem of having no money to pay for a good time by crashing a wedding. The wedding scenes were supposed to be charming, but they were not. They missed the only ferry boat home and had to use Tasha’s emergency credit card (given to her by Cate) to stay in a hotel. Instead of making sweet love and taking advantage of a night together, they had the “where do we stand” talk and realized that the obstacles to being together might trump the appeal of being together. The bank called Cate and informed her of the hotel charge. Tasha had to take the heat, telling Cate that she went to a rave. Cate took away the credit card and all of Tasha’s after-school activities, including basketball. Mr. Daniels and Lux decided to keep seeing each other. Tasha glowered.

We are glad that Cate and Ryan are separating. We need a break from their shrill fighting. We don’t care enough about their relationship to be interested in watching them bicker. We can't believe that what is likely to be the last big Lux storyline is going to be an affair with a teacher. We think they are actually a cute couple, but this can't last, can it? We can't wait for Baze and Cate to find out about the affair.

Episode Grade: C+
