Many have things to celebrate this time around – Daniels and Pearlman have certainly never looked happier. Michael is finally comfortable and confident. Bubbles has been missing Sherrod and now he’s back. 88 more words
An intriguing, intertwining episode this week where our recap covers few strands but many different characters as mulitple paths cross. There is a sense of comeuppance here (Herc and Michael’s father) but not with any expected righteousness. 14 more words
Everyone’s got their words of wisdom ready for their adversaries this week, it seems. And it’s not all just to knock some people up (Daniels) and others down (Namond), in this week’s episode we also see that not recognising who you are and being able to freely express it is torturing some of these kids. Enjoy.
