“The Pasadena Primary”: Brothers and Sisters (S5: E14)
Posted by CJ Cregg on January 31, 2010
Kitty tells her family that she’s running for Robert’s senate seat. As an old Walker tradition, they take an anonymous poll. One Walker votes no, which leaves Kitty feeling like she doesn’t have their full support. Everyone assumes Nora voted no to protect Kitty’s health (and cuz Nora is a democrat).
Kevin faces his 20th high school reunion. He almost backs out, but Kitty goes with him at the last second. He faces some old demons, and unfortunately finds out that the implantation didn’t work, so the surrogate isn’t pregnant. This after telling all his high school enemies that he was about to be a father. He also finds the strength to tell Kitty that he, like Robert, wants out of politics and doesn’t want to serve as her campaign manager. As a result, KEVIN voted no to the senate run. Not Nora.
Sarah finally gets to sleep with Roy, and she rates it as a 7.5. (Yikes. That’s a C.) While she’s with him, she gets a text from Luc saying he misses her. (For some reason, Luc always seemed too bohemian to have a Blackberry. Weird dissonance there for me.) Will Luc return in the future?
Holly is still struggling with whether or not to sell her Ojai shares. She meets the creepy dude (York?) to talk about it, and he says he wants a partnership. Like the partnership she had with William Walker. (A sex partnership. How repulsive.) It isn’t clear what she decided in the end, although she gets home to David asking her to marry him.
When the Walkers reconvene over ice cream sundaes after Sarah’s date and the high school reunion, they take another vote, and Kitty has unanimous support from her family. Bring on the campaign.
