<i>Parenthood</i>: The Best and Worst Braverman Pairings in “Speaking of Baggage”

Terrible double-meaning title aside (get it, because there was literal and metaphorical baggage), "Speaking of Baggage" was a much-needed jolt of adrenaline for this season of Parenthood. Because, believe it or not, things actually happened in this episode to lay the ground work for bigger drama ahead. Julia, at long last, became an interesting (read: flawed) person as she loses her sense of self, while Amber's doubts about her impending nuptials bubbled to the surface. There were, as expected, some filler story lines (do we really care about Hank and Sarah's status anymore or whether Drew continues to hook up with that floozy Natalie?) but this was an episode that actually grabbed my attention. Probably because Kristina's running-for-mayor plot line was nowhere in sight, but mostly because of the fascinating unraveling of both Julia and Amber. Here now are the best and worst pairings of the Bravermans from last night's episode "Speaking of Baggage":

<i>Parenthood</i>: The Best and Worst Braverman Pairings in “In Dreams Become Responsibilities”

After last week's surprisingly lackluster episode of Parenthood, it was nice to see the show back in fighting form. And by that, I mean it was equal parts humor and heart, and dammit, isn't that why we fell in love with those Bravermans in the first place? Not only did we get a break from screaming baby Aida, but we revisited some old friends (yo, what's up Mr. Ray?), Adam danced and we were treated (sure, treated) to a cameo from All-American Rejects leading man Tyson Ritter. Of course, it wasn't all smiles on the Braverman front (it never is) as Sarah seemed hell-bent on ruining Amber's happiness and Max made a really sweet gesture for his mom (and when Monica Potter cries, we all cry). Here now are the best and worst Braverman pairings from last night's episode "In Dreams Become Responsibilities."
