Season 4 ended with the tragic car accident. We all knew we had to say goodbye to Robert, but it know it did not make it any easier. And Saul is HIV positive. Remember the closing scene, him telling the family not to touch the blood. And what happened to Holly? Did she make it?
The season opens around Nora’s dining room table with a voice-over from Kitty.
Mateo is introduced into Kevin’s life. A troubled teen, makes you wonder what the writers are planning. We all know that Kevin and Scotty wanted kids? What happens to the baby? Later in the episode, it is revealed that they didn’t end up getting the baby. Is this teen going to be a foster child to them.
Justin is tormented over his decision to return to Afghanistan. Rebecca left him while he was away. After coming back, though, he seems to be the most stable of the bunch. But, the real question is, will Rebecca return?
Shocking, we later see Robert in a comatose state. After brief hope that Robert may come back, we later find out the decision to pull-the-plug. So much for any guest appearances.
As for Nora, she is shown working in a flower shop. And it seems she is willing to put up with some mild verbal abuse from the female owner. What is this new job and why does she need it so bad? What is going on with her finances?
And Saul? Where is this diagnosis going to put him?
I am sure that all of these questions will be answered in the coming season. I know I am looking forward to it.
