Well, Brothers and Sisters sucked tonight…

Justecca slept together and now it’s awkward.
Kitty is building a pergola (are they ever gonna tell us what that is?) with Jack. (Upon further observation it seems to be a gazebo of some sort.) She starts babbling about how he should sell his furniture in warehouses in New York, which pisses him off. But apparently not too much because he grabs her and kisses her. She freaks out and starts babbling again while being a total weirdo. Can’t we bring back that nice dad from last season? This guy is a total hambone.
Sarah is making the costumes for Cooper’s school play. Wow, Cooper’s still around? We haven’t seen him in forever. But Sarah has to suck up to awful snooty parents to try to get him into a private school. Which I’m sure she can afford because, oh wait, what does she do now? But when Cooper quits the play because he doesn’t want to kiss a girl, Sarah flies off the handle and once again Luc gets to be the good parent while she seems irrational.
Holly wandered off in the middle of the night last episode and she shows up this afternoon at Nora’s house looking for William. (Where was she in the interim?) This is absurd. She whines about how she can’t go on living like this, and Nora is convinced she’s going to commit suicide and starts screaming at her. Instead, Holly rationally asks to be taken to the hospital. This whole story line blows my mind. Seriously this is so bad. Holly keeps telling Rebecca that she knows she’s her daughter, but that she doesn’t feel anything for her. Who would say that? Especially cuz she seems so rational in all the other scenes. When she and Holly are reminiscing, Holly says, “If I told you all that, I really must have loved you. But why don’t I feel anything now?” Cue Rebecca’s tears. What the heck? What a horrible line.
While at the hospital, Rebecca tells Nora that she sent her photography portfolio away and she got offered a job in New York City. (This is the most absurd part of the storyline. Magazines aren’t hiring in this economy!) Then she tells Justin. Who runs crying to Nora.
Sidenote. What does Justin do now that he’s back from Afghanistan? What happened to Haiti? Or, you know, med school? Did he finally succeed in flunking out? (My sister says that’s really hard to do.)
But hey, Rebecca’s gone for good. And you know how I felt about her.
