Brothers & Sisters Season Finale Recap: 4.24 “On The Road Again”

‘Brothers & Sisters’ finale: The Walkers’ deadly impasse

brothers-&-sisters-finale-rob-lowe.jpgIn the finale of “Brothers & Sisters,” the Walkers find both fortune and death on an overnight trip.

Robert gets a phone call and has to cancel on Kitty’s campaign appearances. Just then Nora calls and she convinces Kitty to let her go in Robert’s place. Of course, Kitty is unsure that rabid democrat Nora would be helpful on her republican run for U.S. senator (of which, she’s amazingly leading in the polls), but Nora can be persistent.

It looks like Nora is on a bender. She’s going over to check in on Sarah, who has been moping since Ojai closed its doors. Justin, though, beat his mother to it. He discovers his sister in her pajamas eating leftover pizza for breakfast. I laughed out loud when he wondered if she had returned to her dorm days. Luc has also had enough of Sarah’s depression. While there, Justin mentions the one-year trip to Haiti that he had his heart set on until Rebecca got her new job at another produce company after Ojai closed down. I still think it’s ridiculous she is an associate VP now, but I’m trying to employ my suspension of disbelief in this case. Wish me luck.

Saul is tested
This morning, the gays are roosting over at the Ojai House. Scotty and Saul and prepping a test menu for the restaurant they’re opening in a month’s time. As they’re appreciating the amazing fruits (pun intended) that they intend to stock at the restaurant, talk moves to Scotty and Kevin’s baby. Scotty has found a daycare center close to the restaurant, and then both he and Saul giggle over the talk of the new “gay-by.” Just then, a grumpy Kevin walks in (wearing a pink satin sleep mask may I add) and tries to spread his grump across the land. Then Kitty calls and tells him that Nora is joining her on that weekend’s campaign stops. She’s hoping Kevin will say it’s a good idea. He does none of the sort. Actually, he tells her it’s campaign suicide. Then Kitty has to hang up, because guess who has just arrived. Yes, Nora and she brought depressed Sarah along. This will be fun. I can already tell. Kitty hangs up to deal with the situation.

After Kitty hangs up, Saul announces he has a new friend request on Facebook. It’s an old flame of his from two decades before. Then, Scotty realizes that the guy has been living with HIV for twenty years. Saul seems a little taken aback and he asks the guys if they still get tested. They say yes, but when they ask him, he says no. After all, he hasn’t had sex in a long time. Hm, I’m not getting a very good feeling about this.

Later in the semi-privacy of their room, Scotty tells Kevin he’s worried about Saul not getting tested for HIV. Saul overhears them and tells them that there’s really no need. They offer to go with him, but Saul says he’ll get tested when he goes into his doctor in a month for his cholesterol. The guys don’t seem convinced he’ll do that. Neither am I.

Well, I was wrong. Saul actually did go into his doctor and asked about an HIV test. She tells him that it’s totally possible for someone to live with HIV for twenty years and not show symptoms. He tells her about his old flame and then agrees to take a test. He’ll know the results in the morning.

The family that campaigns together
Nora tells Kitty that Sarah is feeling depressed and the trip might help her mood. I love when Kitty tells her this isn’t a road trip to Vegas. On the bus, Kitty and Nora have a short disagreement about Kitty’s stand on tax cuts. Behind them, Sarah is watching TV and reading trashy magazines. Sounds perfect to me! Of course, Kitty has a problem with it. Well, I guess it’s a problem when Sarah almost bites one of Kitty’s associate’s hand off when he reaches for the TV remote.

At their hotel that night, Nora is hell-bent on keeping Sarah positive. She has banned her from TV and ordered her to have a facial night with her. Meanwhile, Kitty is trying to get work done and discovers that an online site accuses her of using Robert’s jet for campaigning. Nora is up at arms at the idea, but Kitty says she won’t even respond to the accusation.

The next morning, the women wake up after what seems like the most drunken facial party anyone’s ever had. Then Kitty gets a phone call telling her to check out the online site. Over the night, someone left a comment there, who knew exactly what Kitty spent on the wig she wore during chemotherapy. While Nora admits she left a comment, she didn’t know the cost of Kitty’s wig, so it couldn’t have been her. Someone is gunning for her and Kitty doesn’t know who it is. I’m sure Robert could tell her, though. Right?

Robert, man of mystery
When we next see Robert, he’s having a screaming match with the man who hired him to get evidence against Stanton. In the last episode, Stanton told Robert that he would ruin Kitty’s campaign if he turned over the evidence against him to the government. Now, Robert’s boss wants it, but he refuses to endanger Kitty’s campaign.

Later that night, Robert calls Justin over to his place. Upon arrival, Justin sees a prescription bottle on the dresser and checks it out. Robert then tells him that he’s the only one he can trust and gives him a key that opens a safe deposit box. He tells Justin that they’re the only ones who have access to the box. He then tells Justin that when he figures out what he wants to do with the box’s contents, he’ll tell him. But… he also says that if anything happens to him, he should give the contents of the box to Kitty and let her make the decision. Wow. Ominous, much, Robert?

The next day, Justin and Rebecca are driving. He’s on the phone with a professor presumably asking about Robert’s prescription pills, which he finds out are linked to some kind of ventricular illness, which seems to alarm Justin. When he gets off the phone, he tells her the call was for school when she asks. Then, Rebecca tells him that maybe they should both be able to do their own thing. She should take the job and he should go to Haiti. When he protests, she drops a bomb. She accepted the job already. He goes ballistic and tells her he won’t go to Haiti then and she has gotten what she wanted. Honestly, I didn’t think it was a bad idea at first. But, then I thought their relationship isn’t exactly great right now and I’m not sure it will survive a year apart from each other. What do you think?

Drama is on the menu
The entire Walker clan convenes at The Ojai House and it seems everyone’s on edge. Saul is not the happiest cook in the kitchen and denies that he’s thinking about the HIV discussion. Justin wants to confront Robert on the medication, but Kitty pulls him away to talk. Then, Justin shuts Rebecca up when Nora asks about her job. Awkward.

Outside, Kitty tells Robert about the online site. She has tried to track the group behind them, but they’re not a registered lobbying group. She fears someone has it out for her and doesn’t know who or why. Instead of telling her the truth, Robert says it’s just because she’s winning the polls right now. Kitty doesn’t seem convinced, though. She then feels a moment of weakness as she wonders if she really can hold the office. What if her cancer came back, she wonders. Robert tells her not to go there and that the day’s drama is just getting to her.

Back in the kitchen, Saul is still rubbing everyone wrong. When Kevin makes a joke about him, Saul goes off. He tells them that they don’t understand what life was like for him as a gay man. They have their domestic partnership, a baby on the way and their yearly HIV tests. He was afraid he’d get beaten up if he walked into a gay bar. And he saw people die from AIDS. All this comfort level around homosexuality is hard for him and now he has to confront the possibility that he has HIV himself. He then storms out of the house passing Kitty and Robert outside. Kitty goes in and Nora wonders where Saul is going and wants to follow. Sarah stops her, and then Kitty and Rebecca go to the kitchen to figure out what’s wrong with Saul.

In the living room, Holly calls Sarah to tell her that drilling at Narrow Lake has begun again and Nora approved it. Sarah goes off on Nora and tells her that she needs to move on.

Outside, Justin is doing some drilling of his own… for information. He wants Robert to tell him more about the circumstances surrounding the safety deposit box. When he refuses, the then asks about the prescription drugs. Robert admits his heart arrhythmia has returned. When Justin further voices his doubt over keeping this all secret, Robert asks for the key back. Just then, Kevin comes out to announce that dinner is ready. Robert goes in and Saul returns to the house. Kevin apologizes to him and Saul accepts.

Inside, Scotty tells the family that the idea of his and Saul’s restaurant is comfort food meets organic meets tapas. Interesting… Then, just as the family is about to dig in, Robert begins to lose his balance and asks that someone call 911.

The next morning Kitty wakes up in a hospital room to find Robert staring at her. She tells him that she’s not cool that he kept his condition secret. He says that he just wanted her to focus on her campaign. Nora tells him that she loves his strong, stoic side, but she fell in love with his vulnerable sides and he shouldn’t hide those from her. Pretty convincing speech, because Robert spills all the details on Stanton and the attacks on her campaign. Later, he apologizes to Justin for putting him in such a predicament and tells him that he has told Kitty everything.

Back at the Ojai House, Nora confronts Saul about his test. He tells her how he led a secret life all those years and he never really let himself get involved with the same person more than once. She wants him to call for his results as she’s sitting there. After saying no, she persists and he makes the call. Tearfully, he tells her he’s fine. Just then, Sarah runs out and tells Nora that Holly called and they have to get over to Narrow Lake.

Ojai Foods Water
When they get there, water is bursting out of the ground. Holly happily informs them that they’re in the water business. Their drillers tell them it’s the deepest one they’ve ever found. I love when Nora wondered how much they were wasting! Hah. Sarah is ecstatic and they all go dancing in their new fountain of money.

On the road again
Afterward, everyone loads back into their cars for the drive back to the city. Justin catches Rebecca inside and they agree to support each other with whatever they want to do.

In the car ride home, Kitty and Robert agree that he should release the tapes and Stanton is in for a fight. He should have never mentioned her wig, Kitty says, because that pissed her off. Hah!

Then Holly calls Rebecca to tell her that she and Nora think they should revisit having their wedding in Hawaii. Money changes everything, huh? The phone cuts off before they can tell her that they’ll think about a wedding in Hawaii.

Suddenly, Rebecca and Justin drive right into the scene of a horrific multi-car accident and they soon discover their family members are in the melee. Many of the Walker family are left in bad condition. Rebecca finds Holly unresponsive and bleeding. And Kitty gets a few last words with Robert as he’s bleeding. He tells her that she was right. He was scared when they brought their new son home, but it gave him strength when he saw her holding him. Then, he apparently loses consciousness in that most horrible of ways, eyes still open. Chilling!

During the confusion, Kevin finds Saul, blood running down his face and reaches out to help him. But, he yells not to touch him because, “You can’t!” Nora looks on stunned and upset as she overhears what her brother shouted to Kevin. It looks like Saul wasn’t telling the truth after all.

So, here we are at the end of the season. Robert is apparently unconscious (and Rob Lowe isn’t returning to the series next season) and Holly looks to be in bad shape. And Saul has apparently been living with HIV for two decades without treatment.

‘Brothers & Sisters’ season finale recap: Massive pile-up

Source: EW

brothers-sistersImage Credit: Danny Feld/ABCBrothers & Sisters came thisclose to losing me this season, but I’m so glad I stuck it out: Nothing says May like sobbing while watching the final moments of an episode.

We’ve known since January that Rob Lowe would be leaving the show, and the promo for the season finale showed Kitty distraught after a car accident — and still I started to go numb as Rebecca and Justin went running toward the massive pile-up. I can’t imagine knowing that everyone you care about was involved in a wreck, and having to search for them. A truck had apparently gotten cut off and overturned. Robert and Kitty were the first vehicle to hit it, then the rest of the caravan headed home from taste-testing the menu for Scotty and Saul’s new restaurant at the Ojai house were part of the accordion effect — save the newlyweds, who’d gotten a late start because they were deciding that sometimes being there for your spouse means living separately for a year so he can go to Haiti for school credit and she can accept the job she wants. Rebecca was on the phone with Holly, who was trying to convince her and Justin to let her thrown them their Hawaii wedding now that she, Nora, and Sarah had struck water at Narrow Lake. Nora had paid for more digging and the company found an aquifer. Rebecca got abruptly disconnected from Holly, which made my stomach turn. So many things were excruciating to watch during the hour because you knew what was awaiting you at the end. Seeing Holly, Sarah, Nora, and Saul run through the water at Narrow Lake like they were children playing in a fire hydrant — did I see slo-mo??? — was one of those moments. You wanted to be happy — especially because we thought we were celebrating Saul testing negative for HIV — but the higher we got from seeing a resolution to that pain-in-the-ass Narrow Lake storyline, the farther we’d have to fall.

At the accident, when Kevin tried to help Saul, who was bleeding, we found out that Saul had lied to Nora when he told her he was fine. “Don’t touch me! You can’t!,” he yelled at Kevin. I’m not sure how I feel about that plot point. It’s great that they’re drawing attention to HIV again, and storywise, it’s worthwhile to learn that Saul had acted on his attraction to men when he was younger — he felt ashamed, so it was done in secret, and never twice with the same person so it wouldn’t feel real. But it just felt like it was introduced too suddenly, too forcibly. On the same morning Saul learned that Kevin slept in a sleeping mask (and Kevin learned that Saul slept in a muumuu), while the sounds of Olivia Newton-John’s “Physical” filled the air, Saul discovered on Facebook that one of his old acquaintances had been living with HIV for decades. It was about as subtle as Rebecca and Justin joking right before the crash that every time they talk about having a big wedding, something bad happens.

Back to the accident: Sarah was fine, as were Scotty and Nora. Nora told Rebecca she couldn’t get Holly out of the car, so Rebecca went to find her while Justin checked on Kitty and Robert. Robert looked so still, it was as though he was paralyzed. He had blood on his head. When Rebecca screamed for Justin to come help Holly, Robert told Justin to go. (I think Robert knew he was dying, and that Justin, who’s worked on soldiers in combat, would have the strength to leave him if it meant helping someone who could be saved. Holly looked bloody, too, but she moved a tiny bit, so I predict she’ll live.) Kitty was left alone with Robert, who echoed a conversation they’d had earlier in the episode when he got dizzy from his arrhythmia, and they had to call an ambulance to the Ojai house to take him to the hospital. Kitty had told Robert that she loved the hero and the vulnerable man who, after his heart attack, was afraid he wouldn’t be able to keep up with their son. As he sat there in the car, he told Kitty that she was right: he was afraid he wouldn’t be able to keep up with Evan, but as he watched Kitty hold him and saw how strong and loving she was, he knew she would. Then, he went silent, his eyes open and still.

Both Rob Lowe and Calista Flockhart were amazing in that scene. She could have been screaming for help, but in that moment, when you find out that someone you love may really be dying, you’re lost. Sometimes you can’t yell. Maybe it’s your brain’s way of pretending it really isn’t happening. Because if it was, of course you’d be yelling. And the second someone comes and sees what you’re seeing, it’s real. They’ll say he’s gone. Kitty looked around for help and back at Robert, saying, “Oh god, somebody… somebody… somebody help me. Help me. Robert, Robert, it’s gonna be okay. It’s gonna be okay. Stay with me, Robert.” As the camera panned out to show the scope of the accident, you saw from a distance Nora walking and calling Kitty’s name. You just wanted Nora to get there. This episode did a nice job of reminding us that as much as Nora butts in to everyone’s lives when they don’t necessarily want her to (more on Kitty’s campaign bus in a minute!), she’s there whenever they do need her.

We know that we’re jumping ahead a year when Brothers & Sisters returns in the fall, and that Kitty is “single,” so it’s safe to assume that Robert died. I’ve had issues with his extreme levelheadedness over the years, but I’m suddenly glad that he always ended up doing what was right in the end. When he was in the hospital earlier, he told Kitty about both his heart problem and the situation he’d gotten himself in with Stanton, the man he was trying to nail for bribing him to get highly-inflated defense contracts. Robert had refused to release the tapes because Stanton, who knew what Robert was up to, had started an anonymous Citizens for a Corrupt-Free America website to start rumors about Kitty, like that she was using Robert’s private jet to campaign and that her wig cost $4,300. Robert didn’t want Stanton to ruin Kitty. But that wig comment (which was true — who knew?) went far enough that right before the accident, Kitty had told Robert that they had to release the tapes now. The question is: When the show returns in the fall, will Kitty be a Senator, or will she have dropped out of politics? I think she will have been appointed to fill Robert’s seat after his death and won the election.

Now, we can get to the one true bright spot in the episode: Sarah’s depression. Sarah has always been my favorite Walker (save the time she was with Steven Weber), and this episode made me feel closer to her than ever. A) Why would she look for a new job when she could spend her days looking at Luc in a wifebeater? B) Cold pizza is really good. C) She just wanted to lay on the couch, watch TV, and drink. All of that made “rabidly democratic” Nora dragging Sarah along on Kitty’s Campaign Bus for the weekend when Robert couldn’t make the 16-stop journey completely insane but hysterical. The fact is, Kitty is running for Senate and should be focused on her campaign and not on keeping Sarah from commandeering the remote control on the bus or in the hotel room that the three of them shared. While Kitty was trying to work on a speech, Nora was pushing for facials and Sarah was asking for the bus keys so she could go get more wine. I love that Nora told her she wasn’t driving (or cabbing) anywhere, then suggested they send out an intern for alcohol. Honestly, the only thing I really wish I could change about my own mother is that she doesn’t drink. If she did, I could say stuff like, “Don’t get involved, keep drinking.”

Your turn. What did you think of the season finale? Did you cry? How much will you miss Rob Lowe? (I’m looking forward to single Kitty, but I’m glad he got a moving exit that exceeded my expectations.) Do you want Holly to live or die? (Live, Holly, live!) And how convenient that the one-year jump means Justin will be back from Haiti, Kevin and Scotty’s baby will be born, Saul will hopefully have figured out how to live with his new reality, his and Scotty’s restaurant — comfort food meets organic meets tapas — will have found its legs, and the Walkers will be settled into the water business?

Brothers & Sisters Season 5 Spoilers: 1 Year Time Jump!

Season 5 will be 18 episodes only

Exclusive: ‘Brothers & Sisters’ time warp deets!

by Michael Ausiello

brothers-sistersImage Credit: Eric McCandless/ABCAll that wine-guzzling is finally catching up to Brothers and Sisters‘ Walker clan: The entire family is about to lose a year of their lives! As I revealed in Ask Ausiello this week, the ABC drama will likely flash-forward 12 whole months between the May 16 finale and next season’s premiere. In this exclusive interview, executive producer David Marshall Grant reveals why a time jump is being considered and what the fallout would be for the Walkers.

What are the advantages to leaping forward?
DAVID MARSHALL GRANT:
We all know that Rob [Lowe]‘s not coming back next year… [so Kitty] is going to be single next season. It’s going to be a little bit more of a nod to where we were in the first season with her dating. And when you add to that the possibility of jumping a year, it could be really good for us. Basically, by doing this all bets are off in terms of where everybody is.

Is there any chance you won’t do this?
GRANT:
At this point the odds are strong that we will do [a jump] or something like that that would shake us up in some way.

A couple years ago this would be considered groundbreaking. But now that it’s been done on Desperate Housewives, Battlestar Galactica, and Lost, it feels like it’s becoming a bit of a gimmick. Is that a concern?
GRANT:
That’s a problem with television in general in the sense that it’s very hard to come up with something new. So much has been done over the years — and done well. You always battle that “it’s been done before” notion. It’s all about the execution. An idea can be interpreted as a gimmick but if it’s executed in a way that creates new and exciting stories then it becomes worth it and people forget it was done a thousand times before.

With Gilles Marini returning as a series regular, is it safe to say Sarah would be more settled in her relationship with Luc after the jump?
GRANT:
Yes. We’ll be exploring Kitty as a single woman and Sarah and Luc as a couple.

Brothers & Sisters Finale: Who’s Going to Die?

Brothers & Sisters

Brothers & Sisters’ Walker family has overcome cancer and a miscarriage this season, and it has dealt with the loss of the family business. What else could go wrong?

Finale Preview: Get scoop on 31 must-watch season-enders

From the look of the promos for Sunday’s Season 4 finale (10/9c on ABC) — a lot. The episode includes a massive car accident, and it appears that at least one Walker won’t survive. So, who?

Well, the show can’t go on without Mama Nora (Sally Field). Who would hold everyone together? “She is there to save her family, and I think in the finale, she is mostly invested in making sure the family stays together,” executive producer David Marshall Grant tells TVGuide.com.

With Nora through the episode is Sarah (Rachel Griffiths), as the two join Kitty (Calista Flockhart) on the campaign trail. Based on what Grant has planned for Sarah and Luc (Gilles Marini, who reportedly will be a series regular in Season 5), Sarah seems an unlikely candidate for a dirt nap.

Check out photos of the Brothers & Sisters cast

“I think there’s a lot in their future,” Grant says. “I think as Sarah fell in love with Luc, so did the family and so did America. He’s such a great, charismatic guy. We’re going to definitely leave them on a high note. He’s been great for Sarah.”

On a similar note, Grant says, are Kevin (Matthew Rhys) and Scotty (Luke MacFarlane), who found out their surrogate is pregnant. Grant says while biology takes it course, Kevin and Scotty will help Uncle Saul (Ron Rifkin) explore opening a restaurant. But, Grant teases, “they go through a very intense story as well.”

Justin (Dave Annable) and Rebecca (Emily VanCamp), meanwhile, consider a trial separation to deal with their growing marital problems. “They are both starting to see very different futures for themselves,” Grant says. “I don’t think it’s in any way a question of their love — the clearly love each other. They just have two different ideas of how they want to live their lives. I think that’s often the case with young couples: You just have to figure out how you’re going to do it together.”

Rob Lowe to exit Brothers & Sisters, “in talks” for new ABC franchise

That leaves us with Robert, played by Rob Lowe, whose announced departure from the show make him the most obvious candidate to die. And considering Robert’s recent dealings with Bill Stanton (Patrick St. Esprit), who Robert was trying to catch in a political corruption scheme, there are plenty of ways for Robert to leave the show — alive or dead.

“This situation with Stanton could turn dangerous for him,” Grant says. “He also certainly has his health to worry about, which has been an ongoing issue for him. And we have the relationship between Kitty and Robert, which has been up and down and could certainly hit a crisis if the situation with Stanton became a problem for Kitty’s campaign. There are many options, and we had a lot of fun with that in the finale.”

Even so, Grant says there will be a possibility for Lowe’s character to return in some capacity in the future.

Brothers & Sisters: Will Kitty’s run for office divide the Walkers?

So, who’s going to die? Since Grant confirms that the show is considering a significant jump forward in time between seasons, it really could be anybody.

“As we approach next season, we’re going to see people in very different circumstances,” Grant says. “Regardless of whether we jump a year, I still think we’re going to be in the position to shake things up. But if we do choose to do that, then all bets are off.”

The possible time jump won’t keep the show from producing a juicy cliff-hanger, Grant says, adding: “A lot of things are going to finally become clear to the audience, and at the same time, we’re going to be left with a lot of mysteries.”

Kevin convinces her that the interview is fine despite the lame statement. Meanwhile, a celebration turns a disaster when Nora and Holly break the rules of their agreement. Holly rewards Justin and Rebecca a car as an engagement gift, something that irks Nora because they had a deal on giving nothing but a party. The conversation leads to how Holly had an affair with William while he was alive.

Other guest stars coming this season will be Peter Gerety (as a former business partner of William Walker who takes interest in Ojai Food) and Joe Morton (as a med-school mentor for Justin). In the meantime, “Brothers and Sisters: The Complete Third Season” DVD has been on sale starting September 1 for those who would like to catch up before the new season begins.

ABC (finally) set a Sept. 27 return for the Walkers. Among the storylines you can watch for this fall: Kitty and Robert are still putting on a “happily married” façade as he runs for governor, Kevin and Scotty hope for a baby, and Justin’s busy pursuing his doctor dream. Guest stars include, yes, Dancing stud Gilles Marini (as Sarah’s latest dalliance) and Marion Ross, reprising her role as Nora and Saul’s mean mom. Source: TV Guide

Brothers & Sisters Season Finale Recap 3.24 ‘Mexico’

‘Brothers & Sisters’ Finale: Walker Family Vacation

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

The Walkers head south of the border to “save” Tommy in the “Brothers & Sisters” season finale. On the way, we get some stunning disclosures, shocking revelations, and a long-overdue admission of guilt. Plenty of fodder for speculation over the summer break!

Nora
Nora enters a cantina to the strains of an Ennio Morricone knock-off soundtrack…and immediately starts fumbling in Spanish. She discovers Tommy is on a spiritual journey and tracks him down to some sort of retreat center/ashram/hippie enclave/whatever. When Tommy is not produced for her immediately, she assumes he’s been brainwashed by a cult and calls in the troops — her children. Turns out Tommy is just out doing good deeds, but the Walker Family Hounds have already been released, so it’s time for a family reunion!

Justin and Rebecca
Rebecca is bubbling with enthusiasm as she tells Holly and David that she and Justin are engaged. Holly’s reaction is… let’s call it muted. Or bitchy. Bitchy could work. That’s what Rebecca decides — you just can’t be happy for me! You’re so pissed at the Walkers that you can’t see that this is LOVE!

Rebecca accompanies Justin and the family to Mexico, and she’s continues to fizz with happiness. She gives Justin a seriously nice watch, spills about his getting into med school, and proposes eloping in the village church. When Justin demurs, she gets pissy. But Justin fashions a ring out of wire, gets down on one knee in front of “God, Buddha and everyone I love,” and proposes. She accepts.

So all is well, right? Well… Holly shows David the bill for the watch — $20,000! That’s the down-payment for a HOUSE! — and tells him about the time Rebecca was 16 and sleeping with her (married with children) social-studies teacher. When he moved, she followed him to Chicago and lived off her mom’s credit cards, spending wildly, acting obsessively, and generally making a hash of things. Youthful stupidity, or the sign of mental illness? I’m putting my money on crazy. We’ll see next season!

Sarah, Holly, Saul and Ryan
Last week, Sarah and Holly agreed that they needed to get rid of Ryan, because he’s creepy obsessed with the idea that William caused his mom’s suicide, and that’s probably not someone you want to give a seat on the board. But now Sarah feels BAD, so she wants to give him a substantial severance payment and ask him nicely to go away. Sigh.

Because she’s headed to Mexico in Operation: Retrieve Tommy, she asks Saul to get Ryan the paperwork and convince him to sign. But Saul tells Ryan not to do it. Remember how William went to Reno to meet Ryan’s mom, and the next day she died? That’s not quite how it happened: William sent Saul to pay her off and tell her to go away. Saul was brusque about it — it kind of sucked to be his brother-in-law’s affair-breaking errand boy — and he felt responsible when he heard about her death. Now he wants to make it up to Ryan by keeping him on at Ojai. He’ll rejoin the company to keep an eye on the kid. Holly eventually agrees — but Saul will owe her. That’s NEVER good…

Kitty and Robert
Kitty and Robert fight over the potential separation, with Kevin playing referee. Robert doesn’t want to go through with it, but Kitty is adamant that she needs to take Evan and move back to Pasadena. When it still seems like there’s a potential brainwashing cult situation, Kevin calls Robert and tells him to get down there. Robert arrives in a chopper, and he and Kitty immediately start fighting again. Kitty announces that they’re separating.  Robert gives up — you know what? Fine. It’s over. I fought the separation because I knew if you left, you’d never come back. But if that’s the way you want it, I’m out of here. Of course, Kitty changes her mind at the last possible minute and runs after his chopper. He leaves without seeing her. Sigh.

Tommy and Kevin
The whole family is thrilled to see Tommy when he finally reappears from his supply run — he’s re-engineering the fountain in the town square, which has been broken for ages. The community he’s in imposes silence at meals… and you can imagine how that goes. Charades leads to an outburst, which leads to the family getting kicked out. Chalk up another quiet place the Walkers have been ejected from…

Most of the family panders and strokes Tommy — we support you completely! No judgment! — but Kevin can’t take it. You’re a schmuck, you betrayed us and abandoned your wife and child, and screw you. But guess what: Tommy agrees. He admits that he’s been a selfish bastard who hasn’t paid the price for his actions. He apologizes. He weeps. And he thanks Kevin for seeing him for who he is. I’m trying to change, he tells Kevin. When I have, I hope you see that too. So he’s staying in Mexico, at the spiritual center, to continue working on himself and performing good works.

Brothers & Sisters Season Finale Spoilers: 3.24 ‘Mexico’

Episode 3.24: Mexico (Season finale) Airdate: May 10, 2009

When the Walker family reaches out to Tommy, they’re devastated to find that he may be unwilling to accept their help. Meanwhile, Robert and Kitty reach a crossroads in their marriage that they may not be able to successfully navigate; Justin makes plans for the future, with or without Rebecca; and Saul makes a shocking admission about Ryan Lafferty’s mother. Source: ABC

Balthazar Getty returns for the season finale of Brothers & Sisters this Sunday, but the family is actually going down to Mexico to find him. (What, no swine flu warnings in Walker-land?) After many weeks missing, Robert McCallister (Rob Lowe) has finally helped Nora Walker (Sally Field) track Balthazar’s character, Tommy, south of the border, but sadly he might not be ready to be found. Nora thinks he’s in a cult, and in true Walker fashion, everyone has to come running to see what’s going on. So is the lost Walker really brainwashed? Check out the sneak peeks below with additional spoiler bonuses to get the answer. Plus, find out which Walker couldn’t care less about Tommy and which Walker is on the way to a divorce.

Spoiler Bonus: You didn’t really think Tommy was in a cult, did you? Nope, he’s actually doing very good things in Mexico, like fixing fountains and building new water systems.

Spoiler Bonus: Kitty (Calista Flockhart) and Robert’s marriage is in trouble. If it weren’t for Kevin’s help, they’d already be divorced. As we reported earlier, they’re actually going to reconcile, but it will take a lot of work.

Spoiler Bonus: Is Tommy really shamed? For once, Nora is right. Tommy is actually in Mexico trying to become a better man for his family. So despite the Walkers coming to bring him home, he’s not leaving Mexico anytime soon.

Spoiler Bonus: Did you notice the one Walker who didn’t go running in for a hug? Yeah, Kevin is still not too pleased that Tommy went on the lam, leaving Kevin and Justin as accessories to aiding and abetting a criminal.

Are you happy Tommy is back for the finale, or were you glad when he took off in the first place?

“Mexico” airs this Sunday at 10 p.m. on ABC.

Brothers & Sisters Episode Recap: “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off”

In the penultimate Season 3 episode, Brothers & Sisters took just a second to let everyone catch their breath, refocus and think (or not, in some cases) before they act. But that’s not to say the episode was boring. Kitty — with the aid of some William Walker flashbacks — comes to a decision about her rocky marriage with Robert, Nora is hell-bent on finding Tommy, no matter what anyone in the family says, and Ryan’s “secret” gets out, causing a huge “Walker meltdown,” as Robert puts it. Plus, Sarah deals with the news that Joe is getting remarried, Kevin battles with taking sides in the Kitty-Robert struggle, and Justin has maybe the best week of his life ever. All the details lie ahead!…..read more

Tough love on ‘Brothers & Sisters’

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

I’m at a loss this week, because the Walkers and Walker Satellites were acting like rational adults on “Brothers & Sisters.” Sure, there was drama, conflict and a fair amount of angst, but they all (with a few exceptions) stepped up and took responsibility for themselves. I actually felt for these people this week.

Kitty, Robert and Kevin
Robert overhears Kitty talking furtively to someone, including the phrase “No, he hasn’t left yet,” and figures she’s talking to Alec. He confronts the man in the park. Nope — she was talking to Kevin, planning the surprise “Welcome back to work after recovering from your covered-up heart attack” party at the office.

Kevin can see that something is going on, and gets Robert to spill that Kitty may be having an affair. Kevin then talks to Kitty, who is defensive — I never slept with Alec, and anyone else would have in my place, and besides, this is all just because I don’t want to be like mom! “Doesn’t having an affair make you more like dad?” Kevin asks. Ouch. Also, yep!

Some flashbacks about Papa Walker make Kitty realize what a schmuck he was and what a schmuck she’s being, so she breaks it off with Alec. But this doesn’t mean all our problems are solved, she tells Robert. We need some space to figure things out. You’re asking for a separation? Robert asks. I guess I am, she replies.

Sarah and Holly
Ojai is throwing a Unity Party to reassure the masses that everything is shiny and happy and peaceful between the two Glorious Leaders. Holly proposes doing a musical number to make fun of themselves. Sarah has other things on her mind: Joe and his first wife are getting remarried. Ouch. She tells Holly. Why?

Ryan, Rebecca and Justin
Ryan apologizes for the mustache-twirling last episode and reassures Rebecca that everything is fine. As Rebecca has been avoiding him like the plague — which takes some skill, as he’s still staying at her house — we’re not so sure. But she does agree to go to the upcoming Ojai Unity Party with him. Why?!? Argh!

Meanwhile, Justin discovers he’s been admitted to one of the medical programs he applied to, and he and Rebecca celebrate with sex. Looks like they’re back together! Rebecca tells him about Ryan’s theory about his mom committing suicide because of something William did to her, and that makes Justin ok with him. Will he be quite so ok when he hears that Ryan kisses Rebecca and thanks her for their “date?” Somehow I doubt it…

The Party
Justin confronts Ryan about the kiss, and Ryan mouths off — we’re on a date! She kissed me back! Justin tells him he’s delusional, and says he knows about Ryan’s antipathy toward the family and his deal with Holly. Sarah overhears that part, and then it’s time for them to go on stage. This leads to a lovely little passive-aggressive duet, where Sarah purposely mangles “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off.” Heh. She and Holly retreat to the bar and have it out , not realizing they’re still mic’d. Sarah calls Holly a borderline sociopath, and Holly calls Sarah lonely. Ryan storms back and is pissy, then stalks off.

The Aftermath
Kitty follows Ryan home and tells him that her flashbacks suggest that William probably was the impetus for his mom’s suicide. The next day, Holly and Sarah discover that instead of quitting, Ryan showed up to work early. They won’t have an easy time getting rid of him. Justin proposes to Rebecca, who accepts. You’d expect Nora to immediately start planning the wedding, but she’s distracted. Robert used his connections (our tax dollars at work!) to track down Tommy, and she’s traveled to the Mexican town where he’s hiding out. Dun dun dun!

Brothers & Sisters Episode Recap: “Julia”

Everyone’s got something to hide in this episode of Brothers & Sisters, but before the hour winds up, most everybody’s secrets are out of the bag, for better or for worse. Kitty continues her “emotional affair” with “hot park guy” Alec, but her puppy love ends up hurting her, physically and emotionally. In Tommy’s absence, Julia faces foreclosure on her house, but is too afraid to tell Kevin and Nora why she can’t accept their help. And weasel-y Ryan weasels his way into a job and weasel-y Holly’s good graces by becoming her mole (thought I was going to say weasel didn’t you?) on the Ojai board, but only tells Rebecca. All that, plus (two!) stuffed ponies, some airbag burns and even some tears lie ahead in this week’s recap….read more

Brothers & Sisters Episode Recap: “S3X”

This episode of Brothers & Sisters definitely lived up to its name. Coming off a monthlong break, the show picked up right where it left off and threw in some raunch for good measure. Sarah was on the prowl, ultimately “crunching some numbers” with a steamy Ojai accountant; Nora was once again wooed by her British architect beau, Roger; and Kevin and Scotty were nearly persuaded into a threesome by one of Kevin’s exes. Robert wants to move his recovery into the bedroom, but Kitty has a headache — and maybe an intellectual affair. Let’s kiss and tell, shall we?….read more

New Brothers & Sisters Season Finale Spoilers

So long, Julia Walker… ‘Brothers & Sisters’ bids farewell

Poor Sarah Jane Morris. She was woefully underused on “Brothers & Sisters” these last three seasons and with her TV husband Balthazar Getty going bananas and being sent on hiatus, it seems “B&S” producers decided to give her her walking papers as well. But I’m not sure why. I mean, with Tommy M.I.A., the perfect opportunity for SJM’s character Julia to step into the spotlight finally presented itself, no? And Morris’ departing scene last night showcased her ample skills as an actress …not to mention those of Sally Field and Matthew Rhys. My goodness. Their faces, as they said goodbye? I — for once — didn’t cry, but only because I couldn’t believe how crazy real everyone’s emotions seemed. It was startling. So, yeah, there’s no shortage of talent on “Brothers & Sisters,” true. But think of all the storylines single and jilted mom Julia could’ve done. “B&S” powers-that-be, bring Sarah Jane Morris back next season! I hear Seattle kind of sucks. Not really. Heard it’s actually pretty sweet, but maybe Julia won’t like it…

If Robert and Kitty are getting divorced, does that mean Rob Lowe is leaving the show? Nah. I don’t know if R&K will even go through with the big D. My money’s on an eventual reconciliation

Sarah and Holly are working together again, but they’re getting along? How long will this last? There’s an Ojai Foods party this weekend. Holly will be there. The Walkers will be there. It’s a recipe for, well, you know, if you’ve ever seen an episode of the show.

I’m reading some weird stuff about Tommy joining a cult on Brothers & Sisters. Is it true? Despite what our frenemy is reporting and what Nora Walker (Sally Field) thinks, Tommy does not join a cult. Instead he’s doing something very Sayid-ish down in Mexico, minus the houses.

Brothers & Sisters Episode Recap: “Taking Sides”

After the much-debated movie event of a week ago, Brothers & Sisters returned to its soapy best — and no one was safe. When we were last with the Walkers, they were swimming their way through “Troubled Waters.” But now that they’ve each found the shore, they realize they’re not all standing on the same side of the river. It’s Tommy vs. Holly, Justin vs. Rebecca, Kitty vs. Robert, and Nora vs. the World (or at least the bulk of her family). But as the episode poignantly reminds us, in battles of the heart, most often there are no winners, only casualties. Did anyone survive? Let’s find out. read more

New Brothers & Sisters Spoilers: Episode 3.18: Taking Sides

‘Brothers and Sisters’ Preview: Welcoming Ryan and Letting Go Tommy

Ace Showbiz TV News

Just as the Walkers family in ‘Brothers and Sisters’ is swollen with the addition of the baby and Ryan, one has to go for a long time.


See larger image

It was not so much a “shocking death” that ABC had promoted earlier about “” last night’s episode. However, the show is prepared for a larger scheme that involves an arrival and departure. Nora is asking the favor of the whole family to welcome the love-child of William, Ryan Lafferty who is played by Luke Grimes. Ryan gets a bit too close too fast for anyone’s good. Meanwhile, the episode’s title “Taking Sides” explains on the two sides built in the middle of the family. Saul and Sarah go to extremes to hide Tommy’s legal troubles from Nora, while others try to expose it. Also, even in the wake of a life threatening medical crisis and the excitement surrounding the birth of his son, Robert remains steadfast in his drive to run for governor, despite the damage that it may do to his marriage.
“Taking Sides” is aired March 8. This would provide the beginning of the plot to let Balthazar Getty who plays Tommy go.

After last night’s emotional episode of Brothers & Sisters, please tell me there’s some good news coming for the Walker clan!
There’s some good news and some bad news on Brothers & Sisters. Good news: Robert is still alive. Bad news: He probably won’t be married much longer. Good news: The illegitimate Walker children (Ryan and Rebecca) are bonding! Bad news: There are sparks flying. Good news: Justin supports Rebecca through the whole Holly-Tommy debacle. Bad news: Justin and Rebecca are splitsville by the end of Sunday’s ep. Or is that good news? Source: Kristin @ E!Online

Brothers & Sisters Episode Recap: 3.16 & 3.17 “Troubled Waters, Part 1 & 2″

Brothers & Sisters: Good news, bad news, worse news

Zap2it.com Recaps

Roblowe_brothersandsisters_240 The Walkers don’t do anything by halves on Brother & Sisters. They will take your baby-birthing and raise you a heart attack, then throw in an embezzlement and  the appearance of yet another Walker  child on the doorstep. Evan — there’s still time. Run! Run like the wind!

Family dinner
The episode starts off auspiciously enough with a Walker family dinner. Rack of lamb, Nora gets everyone together — what could be happening? After yet another spat with Kitty, Robert tells the family that he’s running for governor — but they need to keep their mouths shut, because he won’t announce for another week. Before folks can react, Nora tells them about meeting Ryan, and Saul bitches that Nora gave Ryan a plane ticket and he could be showing up at any moment. (Surely he’d call first?) Cue the harrumphing from the Walker sibs. If only they knew that this was the calmest things were going to get…

The newest Walker
The next day, Kitty finds out that Trish is delivering now, immediately, two weeks early. The family goes a-rushing to the hospital with a list of supplies and accessories. Trish is calm, but all the Walkers are losing their minds. But a couple of key players are missing — Kevin and Robert are still at the office. That’s because The Drudge Report has outed Robert’s run, and Robert decides he needs to announce RIGHT NOW. Small problem: The governor, Robert’s friend, the woman he counseled through her infidelity crisis, has changed her mind. She DOES want to run again, and she’s not at all happy that Robert didn’t tell her he was making his move. She threatens to destroy him.

She’s going to have to get in line, because Kitty is PISSED that Robert isn’t there for the birth of their child. Things get worse when Trish goes from zenlike calm to shrieking banshee in next to no time. Unfortunately, she’s too far along by the time the anesthetist gets to her. No epidural for Trish! She is not happy.

Neither is Kitty, when she discovers that Robert is on TV, live, announcing his candidacy when Trish is about to start pushing. That’s it — she’s done with the man! He always promises to put family first, and it’s all LIES! She’s through! He doesn’t need to show up at all! So Kitty is alone with Trish (and, of course, Nora, and the medical team) when the baby is born. Welcome to the world, kiddo! And boy, are you in for it!

Heart stoppers

Robert really is trying to make it to the hospital — which is a wise idea, because on the way out, he starts sweating, slurring, puking and collapsing. He’s having a heart attack! They rush him to the hospital, where he flatlines on the table. They shock him back to life.

Kitty is remorseful — oh, my poor hubby, if only I could hold him again! I don’t want my last memories of him being of me angry at him. Nora tells her everything will be ok, but she’s really just as discombobulated as the rest of the family. The only one holding it together is Justin, who talks everyone through the various possibilities and ramifications.

When Robert is stabilized, Kitty shows him their new son — and finds out that Robert would rather wait for an experimental treatment than have the heart-bypass surgery that the cardiologist recommends. Kitty puts her foot down — campaign, schmampaign, you missed our son’s birth but I’ll be damned if you miss his life. Robert caves and has the surgery. It goes well, and it looks like everything will be fine, despite the long recovery time (Hey, it takes a while to bounce back from having your chest cracked open and your arteries rejiggered.) He and Kitty consult long enough to name the boy after his birth mother — no, not Trish, but Evan, for her last name. Awww.

Kitty thinks all is well — Robert will take it easy, they’ll get back home and concentrate on the kid. Not so fast — Robert instructs Kevin to tell the press there was just a heart “irregularity,” that it was really no big deal, and that he’s still running. Kitty is devastated, and she tells little Evan that it’s just the two of them from now on.

Crime time
Everyone is getting more and more suspicious about Tommy’s actions. Holly has found out about Tommy’s plan, but there doesn’t seem to be anything she can do about it. She tells her lawyer to start filing whatever he can, and he cautions her that this could destroy the company. Works for me, Holly says…

Rebecca returns home, with David in tow. Holly does NOT take kindly to David’s reappearance, and she’s basically horrid to him. David persists — look, you always were obsessed with William, that’s why we didn’t work. You deserve more than to be second string for decades on end. Give up this thing with the Walkers. Walk away.

Holly seems like she’s willing to follow that advice — but first she stops by Tommy and Julia’s house. When Julia gets the news about Robert, Holly offers to stay with Elizabeth — which give her the opportunity to snoop around. She finally finds evidence that Tommy stole $2 million from the company to buy the orchards that they bought using stock. Oh, Tommy… you’re so screwed.

Which is a problem, because Sarah, Kevin and Saul have finally convinced Tommy that he needs to back away from illegality. He cancels the board meeting he had called to oust Holly, and looks like he’s trying to figure out how to make things right. Too late — Holly calls the cops. They’re collecting documents from his house. This is going to get ugly…

Everyone else
Justin has a couple of revelations: One, he’s most comfortable when he’s the calm voice in a crisis. He hasn’t felt that way since he was a medic in Iraq. He decides he wants to be a doctor. That seems like zero to 60 in 2.5 seconds to me — didn’t  he say he dropped out of school, and now he wants to go to med school? What’s wrong with being an EMT or a nurse, something that doesn’t take quite so many years of schooling but is just as vital to people’s well-being? Justin doesn’t care what I think. Stupid TV characters, refusing to hear what I say to the screen…

Second revelation: He loves Rebecca. She loves him, too. So everything’s great, right? Yeah, about that — first, Holly is working to destroy Tommy, which Rebecca knows about. She doesn’t say anything about it. That may be because before she can mention anything, there’s a knock at the door. It’s Ryan. Boy, did HE pick a fun time to visit…

Highlights, thoughts and odds and ends

  • All the Walker siblings are suspicious about Nora’s motives for the sumptuous family dinner. “Don’t you think it’s possible that your mother wants to have her children here without an agenda?” Saul asks. “No,” everyone replies. When Nora tries to make the same argument later, Saul chimes in on the “No!” with everyone else. Heh.
  • Sarah decides this dinner must be about her. “Oh, what a novel conclusion,” Kevin snarks. No, really, Sarah says — Greenatopia is kicking ass to the extent that I paid off the second mortgage on my house! Congrats, folks say, but…”No offense, that’s roast chicken at best,” Tommy says.
  • The family is shocked that Nora decides that what Ryan really needs is to meet his half siblings. We’re all miserable and unhappy! they say. Just you wait…
  • Kevin anticipates Robert’s needs at work. “When was the last time I told you you were doing a good job?” Robert says. “You’ve NEVER told me that,” Kevin replies. Up until now, Kevin, we really haven’t seen you DO a good job, so shut it. After some more praising, Kevin says, “This is getting a little awkward — you want to hug or something?” “No!” Robert cries. Heh.
  • I have never given birth. I understand it hurts like hell. However, must every single TV show on the planet include a pregnant woman howling for drugs? Robert has a headache, and Kevin finds him the aspirin. If he were in my office, he’d be dead — I’m an Advil girl, all the way. It’s candy coated!
  • The makeup people do a great job of making Robert look near death in the parking garage. He’s drenched with sweat and completely disheveled. Apparently, the ambulance was equipped with a shower or spa facillities, because he looked much fresher when they got him to the hospital. He even managed to make flatlining and jerking under the paddles look good!
  • Trish takes off quickly after giving birth. I’m getting the sense she wants nothing to do with the baby — or possibly the Walkers — ever again.
  • Nora tells Kitty the most important thing she can learn about motherhood: “Rule number one — when the baby naps, you nap.” Damn straight!
  • Yes, I know — technically, Evan is a McAllister, not a Walker. But let’s be honest, here — the Walker contingent is much more important — and vocal — and will have a much greater influence on the poor kid than anything Robert does.

New Brothers & Sisters Spoilers: Death! Who?

Preview: Death Falls Upon ‘Brothers and Sisters’

‘Brothers and Sisters’ will overcome a shocking death while coping with a new addition in a two-hour special telecast.
Ace Showbiz TV News

A shocking death shakes the very core of the Walkers family in the next ““. In two weeks, the show will merge two hours for a special episode where the family is torn between the happiness of Kitty’s new arrival and the death from one of the members.

In the two parts of “Troubled Waters”, the Walker family experiences the thrill of a new life born and the desperation and terror of loss when one of their own has a life-threatening crisis. Meanwhile, Rebecca turns to her father (guest starring Ken Olin) for help when she discovers some information that could destroy the family business and send one of the Walkers to prison.

The special 2 hour event will air March 1 starting 9/8c.

Spoiler alert. It had been reported that Tommy will be tangled in a legal trouble following the discovery by Holly and Rebecca. This will provide as an exit story for Balthazar Getty who plays Tommy. His last episode is reportedly “Spring Broken” that will air March 15.

We’ll see William Walker again before the season ends. Tom Skerritt is scheduled to appear in a flashback with Calista Flockhart this Spring. (Korbi TV)

‘Brothers & Sisters': “Are you sure this is a good idea?”

Source: Zap2it.com Recaps

Roblowe_brothersandsisters_240 Once again, it’s a festival of dubious decision-making on Brothers & Sisters. Will the Walkers ever learn — and if they did, would the show be half as entertaining?

Family
Nora goes up to Berkley to meet Ryan, who is shocked to see her. Apparently he’d mentioned wanting to talk, but he didn’t expect her to appear the next day… Oh, Ryan. Watch the show and see what you’re getting into, ok?

Ryan proceeds to run hot and cold with Nora: I need to talk about this! I don’t want to talk about this! I need help! You’re not my mom! You don’t understand what I’m going through! Wait, come back and talk to me! I feel for the kid, but he’s got to make up his mind. Nora eats it up, and ends up buying him a plane ticket and inviting him to come down to Ojai to meet the family. Because meeting the whole passel of Walker siblings wouldn’t be traumatic AT ALL. Ryan backs out at the last minute. I guess that means he’s out of the picture forever! Yeah, right…

Meanwhile, Rebecca flees to New York to stay with David after figuring out about Tommy’s perfidy and fighting with Justin. She refuses to pick up Justin’s or Holly’s calls. David knows something’s up, but Rebecca says she just wanted to hang out with her dad. When David doesn’t buy it, Rebecca goes off in a huff and David tracks her down and apologizes. David then accompanies Rebecca back to LA to see Holly again. Oy.

Business
Patriciawettig_brothersandsisters_240 Holly interrogates Justin about where Rebecca is, and he lets slip something about Tommy and business. She goes through Rebecca’s desk and finds the information she’d gathered about Tommy scouting out the orchard months before the deal.

Holly goes to Saul with the contract and asks for help interpreting this one weird clause — who or what is Omni, and should I be worried? Once Saul figures out what’s going on, he covers for Tommy — nothing to see here, move along! — but he’s furious. He drags Tommy over and reads him the riot act. Tommy admits to raiding the pension fund to buy the land, but he’s unrepentant: It’s our company, not Holly’s! We’ll see about that — Holly takes the contract to the lawyers, who figure out that Tommy owns Omni and that this is a ploy to force Holly out.

Politics
Last week, Robert confirmed to Kitty that he was running for governor. Kitty says she’s fine, just fine! with the decision (and his lack of consultation), but Kevin predicts Kitty will explode soon. Yep — in an interview to promote her book, Kitty drops choice quotes like “The Republican party has lost its way; it’s not my party anymore,” and ” My husband doesn’t need an aphrodisiac — he does just fine with women on his own.” Robert is PISSED — “Is it that hard for you to try to present this marriage as even remotely stable?” It sure is, Kitty says, and it doesn’t help that you’re more peevish about campaign issues than the fact that I just said our marriage is in trouble.

Robert tells Kevin to kill the story, and Kevin refuses — this is about your marriage, not your job, so suck it up. So Robert and Kitty talk, and Robert pledges that if he has to choose between his wife and the governorship, he’s going with Kitty. Kitty is so touched that she tells him she’s fine with him running. But the next day, she discovers that Robert interpreted that conversation as permission to kill her interview.

According to insiders who work on the show, Getty’s character, Tommy Walker, will have a very dramatic and surprising storyline in coming episodes, in which he willalert!—go to jail, get out on bail and go on the lam in —spoiler Mexico.

But here’s the really scandalous part…
Sources tell me that before he goes, Balthazar’s Tommy will get thoroughly wasted, flirt with young girls and get a nice slap across the face from his mother, Nora (Sally Field). Maybe mother always does know best? For those of you who haven’t been following Brothers & Sisters (and you really should be, ’cause this solid series is getting even better in coming episodes), Tommy hatched an illegal plan to edge Holly (Patricia Wettig) out of the Walker family business. He’s done some pretty illegal things to achieve his goal, like embezzle $2 million from the company. Hence, the trip to jail, and, well, you’ll see the rest.

The new brother is introduced to the Walker family in the next episode of ““. Nora decides that it is time for her to connect in-person with Ryan, the secret love-child of her husband William. Luke Grimes guest stars as Ryan Lafferty.

Also in the episode called “Lost and Found”, Rebecca disappears to find her father in New York, and Tommy’s plan to get regain control over Ojai Foods hits a major road block when Holly finds out what he’s up to. Kitty finds out someone killed her interview with Times Magazine.

Rumor has it, Tommy will fail in taking over Ojai and no other members from the family will step in to replace him. This has to do with the reports about Balthazar Getty’s shift from the show’s regulars to recurring cast. Getty will officially leave the show in April but the producers hope that he will make guest starring appearances in the fourth season.

Balthazar Getty’s Exit From ‘Brothers and Sisters’ Only Temporary

‘Brothers and Sisters’ executive producer, Alison Schapker, insisted that though Balthazar Getty is indeed taking some time off from the show, he will return as Tommy Walker before the season is over.

As the speculations surrounding Balthazar Getty’s alleged exit from “” intensify with reports that the actor will last be seen in the 19th episode, one of the series’ executive producers, Alison Schapker, stands up and uncovers what is really going on. To Los Angeles Times, Schapker confirms that Getty’s character will leave Los Angeles in the particular episode, but he will return before the end of the season. “Balthazar is taking time off from the show right now because we felt that character was really on a downward spiral and you see him really go on it,” the producer who has also co-written some of the episode explains. “In almost trying to be his dad, he’s destroyed by it, and he has lost everything by the end of the year.” Schapker, in addition, claims that Getty’s Tommy Walker will go through a period of spiritual examination and renewal before the Walker clan can get its hands on him again. “Tommy is in no way permanently gone,” she further reassures. “This is just the logical end to this year’s story. What we’d like to do is bring him back next year in a different way.” Before Schapker came out with the statement, E! Online reported that episode 3.19 of the ABC’s family drama series entitled “Spring Broken” will be Balthazar Getty’s last appearance on the show. Insiders suggested that in the episode, his character, Tommy, will “go to jail, get out on bail and go on the lam in Mexico”.

Brothers & Sisters Spoilers: Meet Ryan Walker!

Brothers & Sisters Preview: Meet Ryan, the Walker Love Child

by Anna Dimond, TV Guide

Luke Grimes, Brothers & Sisters

Brothers & Sisters‘ Walker family is expansive, with the siblings, their significant others and more bringing drama, comedy and intrigue to the fore each week. On Sunday (ABC, 10 pm/ET), a new Walker sibling will add a twist to the mix, arriving after his existence was discovered earlier this season. A product of an affair, Luke Grimes’ (All the Boys Love Mandy Lane) edgy Ryan Lafferty lost his mother, and now faces fresh loss when he learns the truth about his past. TVGuide.com sat down with Grimes to find out what’s behind the new sib’s brooding demeanor, how the family reacts to his arrival and what he thinks of fans’ mixed reactions to his casting.

TVGuide.com: Can you tell us about your character, Ryan Lafferty?
Luke Grimes: He goes to the Berklee School of Music. He lived a pretty happy life up until a certain point when his mother died. And then he was very shocked to find out that the father who raised him is not his real father … and his real, biological father’s dead. So he finds out at a late age that he’s an orphan. The rug’s been pulled out from under him. He’s a complicated guy.

TVGuide.com: How is Ryan going to be introduced?
Grimes: With a phone call. He’s just gotten to the point where he can’t do it on his own anymore, so he reaches out to Nora [Sally Field, the Walkers' widowed matriarch].

TVGuide.com: What will integrating into the Walker family be like? How will the siblings respond?
Grimes: I don’t know yet — it’s all yet to be written.  I’m excited to see what happens next… who he likes, who he doesn’t like.

TVGuide.com: There are a lot of theories circulating about your character, including that he used to be a drug dealer. Are we going to learn more about that?
Grimes: I’m not sure if it’s going to be brought up. But I know that … [Ryan] did have a problem with drugs, and I’m sure that that’s due to having his mother died.

TVGuide.com: Based on what you’ve shot so far, what’s the dynamic like between Ryan and Nora?
Grimes: There seems to be almost a motherly energy coming from Nora. I don’t know if that’s something that they’re planning on playing up, but I feel like that’s the way it’s going. Maybe [the writers will] play that out. But I know that because [Ryan's] a complicated guy, because he doesn’t know what’s going on, he’s rejecting that energy at this point. He’s pushing away a little bit.

TVGuide.com: Was it intimidating to work with a pro like Sally Field?
Grimes: It’s not intimidating working with Sally Field, it’s intimidating in the times in between when the camera’s actually rolling, when I’m sitting next to Sally Field. I don’t know what to say!

TVGuide.com: Rebecca is another character on the show that had a scare over being an illegitimate Walker. Do you know what her dynamic with Ryan will be like, now that she’s off the hook for that?
Grimes: It’s funny, another interviewer asked me if we’re going to have a love connection … . The only thing I know is that one of the audition scenes they wrote for me was with Rebecca, and it was [our characters] meeting at a coffee shop, where he’s asking her about her experience meeting the Walkers.

TVGuide.com: So far it sounds like Ryan is a brooding guy. Are there any light moments for him?
Grimes: Underneath it all, he is a really sweet person, [even after] all he’s been through. There is a side that really cares and is honest … . Something we talked about is the product of environment, maybe he’s just in a bad place. He may seem a little messy to the other characters, but I think given what happened to him, [it's normal].

TVGuide.com: Is Ryan sticking around for a while?
Grimes: It depends on how everyone responds to it, and if the audience likes it. I know I have a four-episode guarantee, and after that it’s fate.

TVGuide.com: For you personally, what has it been like for you to play this character so far? What has your approach been?
Grimes: I’m just trying to wrap my head around what it would be like, because I grew up with a really great, close-knit family … What would that be like to lose your mother at such a young age, and find out that your dad is not your dad? Not only that, but I think about how rejected and alienated Ryan must feel from everyone, because he’s everyone’s mistake. The mom messed up, and he was born, and neither family can see him as a real part of them.

TVGuide.com: There was a lot of public discussion among Brothers & Sisters fans surrounding your casting. Did you come across any of that?
Grimes: My mom was reading all these comments and actually read me one. It causes extra pressure that I didn’t need, but she thought it was funny.

TVGuide.com: What was the comment?
Grimes: I think one said, ‘He looks like a strung-out Johnny Depp,’ and one said ‘He must have gotten the part because his parents are rich,’ which is ridiculous, because my dad’s a pastor and they are not rich. It’s all because they wanted other people [in the role]. [Fans are] entitled to their opinions, but I just hope that they enjoy what I’m doing. Getting a show is really exciting, but knowing that there were people who watched it every week who didn’t want you on, it can start to mess with your head. So I decided, from now on I’ll just do my job and they can blog and do theirs [Laughs].

TVGuide.com: At this juncture of your career, how do you feel about some of the pitfalls of being a young, successful actor in Hollywood?
Grimes: It’s been a slow burn for me. I think I’m glad that it didn’t happen right away, and that I didn’t have money …  .  It’s good, because now I have a handle on what’s important and what’s not. Something that’s not important is trying to find that spotlight. If it comes, it comes, and you have to deal with it because that’s what you signed up for, and you’ve made yourself public domain…  . I don’t think you’ll see me embarrass myself too much.

    Brothers & Sisters – Matt Letscher with multi-episode arc

    #fullpost{display:none;}Think you’re down in the dumps about Eli Stone’s cancellation? Look at the havoc it’s about to wreak on Robert and Kitty’s marriage on Brothers & Sisters!

    Sources confirm to me exclusively that Eli’s premature demise has paved the way for Matt Letscher (a.k.a. Eli’s bro, Nathan) to join B&S for a multi-episode arc as a potential romantic interest for Kitty (Calista Flockhart).

    Letscher’s character, a recent widower, befriends Kitty during a particularly tumultuous time in her marriage. He’s scheduled to start airing in April.

    “It’s going to become a serious complication,” reveals executive producer Monica Breen, ominously.

    How serious of a complication are we talking? And how did Robert and Kitty’s relationship become so strained that it would lead her to consider straying? Stay tuned to B&S this April and you’ll find out!

    Just kidding, I’ll tell you Wednesday in Ask Ausiello. Source: EW
