Y’all, next week is the finale – I can’t believe it! I’ve heard rumors that this show isn’t coming back, but I hope they’re wrong, because I’ve really enjoyed watching it.
But anyway, last night’s episode started off full of family drama. Everyone is stressed out and it’s obvious. Kevin seems to be recovering from his second injury, and Conner is still saucy as hell – I’m wondering what happened to the girl he met during the Bar exam?
Conner meets with Abby’s ex and they get into it regarding the investigation. “I need you to tell me the whole truth,” Conner tells him.
Jess is still seeing the cook from Sally’s, which is a little awkward for the other sister (I can honestly never remember her name).
Meanwhile, Trace stops by the bank to visit his dad, and things seem pretty serious. He tells Trace his loan was approved and he can open the bar. Trace isn’t very excited about it, because his dad basically gives to him as a favor. Trace declares that he does not need a handout.
“I’m not going to let you do to me what you did to mom,” Trace says.
And basically his dad tries to choke him. No lie, he throws him up against the wall, right in his office. YIKES.
Abby’s ex joins the gang for a family day of fun, and it goes over fairly well, until him and Abby exchange goodbyes. She gives him a good talking to over the insider trading, custody battle, and the investigation. Bam!
Back at the house, Abby’s dad is piiised over some business deal that – it sounds like – he is going to lose. Not sure what that’s about just yet.
Trace calls Abby and tells her he has a surprise for her, that he’s taking her dancing, and they’re calling it a date. Whaaaaaat?!?!
Meanwhile, Abby’s dad takes off in the family plane… and I feel like this could end in disaster. Especially since he starts gazing at a family photo just before takeoff.
Jess and Brie (that’s her name) finally meet and talk about the fact that they like the same guy. And it’s pretty awkward. Jess starts the conversation by acting as if she’s going to let go of him and let Brie talk to him since it’s obvious they like each other, but instead, Jess says she’s going to hire him to work as a chef at the B&B. Huh?
Trace takes Abby to the building that he’s going to turn into a dance/concert hall, and he tells her that it’s all thanks to her father for making it happen. Naturally, he flicks on the lights and it’s gorgeous, and he says he’s “waited 16 years for this”, and I want to die in jealousy.
They dance and they kiss… a lot. And it’s super sweet – le sigh!
…And then the episode ends, and they show previews for next week, which shows all sorts of happiness, and then someone needs an ambulance…
In other news, I looked into the music that’s featured on the show, and it turns out, most of it was written by Jesse Metcalfe himself! Color me impressed.
He is singing on the main theme song, and sings quite a few others throughout the season. Apparently, he wrote and sang on a Hallmark Channel movie, too! Pretty cool. Here’s one of the songs featured on the show:
I’m hoping you all have a great Monday – I know I’ve got a crazy week ahead, with dance rehearsals, and my blog class at UT starts its second semester this week! I am excited to meet all of my new students and share the experience of blogging that I love so much. Meanwhile, I’ve got lots of fun things planned for the blog this week, so I’ll see you back here tomorrow.
