One of the reasons why I didn’t keep up with Parenthood whilst it aired was that I really did not want to watch the downward spiral of Joel/Julia. They are my favourite couple in the show and one of my all time favourite married couples so it’s sad to see them like this. However, their separation did make for some awesome scenes in this episode: Joel being a single Dad, an awesome Braverman sibling scene which I’ve waited all season for and the wonderful Victor/Julia phone call scene. Victor/Julia breaks my heart every time.
In terms of everything else …. I am rooting for Carl/Sarah and I think it’s time for Hank to make his retreat, and I don’t really care for the Drew/Amy storyline.
