Kevin is couch surfing after Amy kicked him out of the house. He throws himself into his next mission and waits for his sis to go through her stages of anger before making a proper attempt at reconciliation. Meanwhile, Reese and Yvette try bringing the twins together in their own ways. Get ready for a “Rocky Road” ahead.
One can dream…
Undressed for success.
Kevin meets Sam (Christopher Cousins), a guy who’s been on the job hunt for so long that he’s become a pro at it. When Sam’s suit gets soaked, Kevin gives the stranger the clothes off his back. Now he’s a weird guy stranded on the sidewalk in boxers.
As expected, Nate shows up in response to various calls about a creepy naked guy. He isn’t even surprised to find Kevin at the scene. J. August Richards is doing a great job of playing the straight man to Ritter’s silliness. I also love how Nate always has Kevin’s back. He keeps cleaning up his messes and despite all the strange stuff he’s seen, he knows that Kevin’s quirks come from a good place. It is sweet to see Nate defend Kevin time and again.
Sam returns from his interview, which was a bust. Now that Kevin has his car keys back, he has Sam hop in and promises to help him with the job hunt. They can start by updating his resume and establishing a strong online presence. Nate lets Kevin continue to do his thing and hopes he won’t cause anymore trouble.
Amy gets a call from school saying Reese never showed up. She teams up with Nate (who she is still super mad at for keeping Reese and Kevin’s arrest from her) and they drive around looking for her. Amy blames Kevin for Reese pulling a stunt like this. Nate defends him and opens her eyes to the good Kevin’s been doing. Sure, he’s been acting strange and causing trouble, but Nate has also seen Kevin give a stranger the clothes off of his back. Amy should give him more credit.
Kevin gets news that Reese is missing and immediately joins the search. He knows where she’s probably hiding out and pulls Nate over just like his sister did earlier. By the way, I am really enjoying Nate’s dynamic with this family. He gets each one of them and truly has their backs. It is so sweet!
They find Reese in an abandoned warehouse. She goes there to clear her head and think without interruption. She maintains the power by holding herself hostage high up on a beam. Amy must meet her conditions before Reese agrees to come down and return home. Her demands: Kevin gets to move back in and Amy needs to respect her privacy. Amy agrees and Reese gets up to make her way down.
Suddenly, Reese falls off the beam. Kevin and Amy are too far away to catch her in time. Yvette suspends Reese in mid air until Kevin hurries over and scoops her up. Whoa! Yvette just pulled off a miracle before their eyes.
I love everything about this scene. Chloe East is doing a wonderful job as Reese. She is relatable, youthful and wise. Ritter and JoAnna Garcia are pure magic together. They really have that natural sibling/twin rhythm down. They play off of each other so perfectly and this scene is another example of how they make us laugh and cry all at once. Bravo!
Pragmatic Amy questions Kevin about the fall and catch. She knows what she saw. Reese levitated. There is no scientific explanation for that. Kevin plays dumb and Amy doesn’t pursue it. Maybe now she’ll begin to take Reese and Nate a little more seriously when they defend Kevin. I’m glad she saw invisible Yvette in action and I am so relieved the family is back together. OF course, Amy isn’t the only one with questions.
