I'm not the only one who's always knocking the writers for giving the kids friends who only last an episode, but in this case, I don't understand why they didn't get rid of Mike Pierce five minutes into his first guest spot. He's listening to Lucy bitch about Jeremy being accepted into Juilliard. Ah, so that's what the unexplained letter from New York was about. I can finally sleep at night without that big mystery tearing away at me. Lucy explains that Jeremy's secret plan had been to come back to Glenoak and attend Crawford Clown College with her in the fall, but that Juilliard is too important an opportunity for him to give up. Does she mean it's a better opportunity than Crawford Clown College? That can't be true! She's miserable because she wisely feels that she shouldn't stop Jeremy from attending Juilliard, but she also feels that the bond she forged with him over the course of that one episode a few months ago is so strong that to break it would make her unhappy for the rest of her life. Ah, young love between dumb-asses can be so annoying. Lucy says her parents would never allow her to attend school in New York City. I guess she's forgetting that she's eighteen, and thus legally able to decide her own living arrangements. Except that the legal system in Glenoak is pretty screwed up, and maybe women can't oppose their parents' wishes until the age of twenty-one, or twenty-five or thirty. Mike says he has a plan that could make it harder for the CamRents to stop Lucy from being with Jeremy in New York. You know, I'll bet it's one of those plans that's so crazy, it just might work!
