Season Two, Episode Five
Original Air Date: August 17, 2010
Ally, who appears to have developed a case of sleepwalking, is awakened walking down the middle of the street at night. Gabriel drops in to see Ally once the kids and Joe are gone for the day. Tim starts looking for apartments in Singapore. Christine takes Max to see a therapist because of his lying about his hearing while seeing a therapist herself. Gigi goes to see her friend again. Max has a serious question for Nat. Christine tells Tim she doesn't want to go to Singapore. Spiros steps up his pursuit of Christine.
Max and Christine have a talk about his relationship with Kelly. She wants to make sure that not only are they having safe sex, but good sex. Max is a bit put off talking to her about sex.
Both Christine and Max's therapy sessions are revealing about what they do and don't want. They both don't want to go to Singapore but for very different reasons. Max sees Singapore as "another complication". For Christine, she feels if she doesn't go it will destroy her marriage.
Romeo and Max skip school to go to the pub. When Romeo gets drunk Max has to call Joe to come pick him up. Romeo confides in Joe that he misses his dad. I think Joe is probably a better father figure than Romeo's dad was. Sure, we don't know what all of Joe's secrets are yet but he still appears to be a more kind and caring man than Vince ever was. He doesn't seem to be near as selfish.
Ally invites Gabriel, his girlfriend and her son over for dinner. Nat invites Conrad. While he's drunk, Romeo invited Ophelia and Olivia over to his house for a party. Sophie is star struck over Nat. Everything she says ends up coming out wrong. Joe catches Gabriel kissing Ally before he ends up sitting in on the seance the kids are having. Gigi wants to know if her dad's spirit is there. The seance breaks up but not before some of the kids feel something in the room.
I find it very interesting that Max is actually considering living with Nat instead of going to Singapore. I think in a very strange way that Nat would make a great mother to Max. She obviously loves him a lot and I think she'd try her best to do the best for him.
Christine truly wants to have an affair with Spiros. They end up sharing a passionate kiss in Spiros' car outside the Williams' house and Max catches them. Christine begs him not to tell Tim. I have a feeling there are going to be a lot of fireworks in the Williams house very soon!
Next weeks season finale sure does look to be an exciting one! Nat and Max confront Christine with the fact Max, who now apparently really dislikes Christine, wants to live with his mother. Ally confronts the woman Vince left $50,000 to. Gigi comes up missing. I hate it that the season is coming to an end so soon but, at the same time, I can't wait to see next weeks show!
