As most of the Walker clan gets ready to celebrate its first non-Nora Thanksgiving (awesome timing, ABC!), one family member's tragic emergency manages to keep the family together. And while it all sounds a little gloomy, I have to say this episode had a lot of comedy, and more importantly, a lot of heart, easily making it my favorite of the season so far. So how did this un-Thanksgiving turn out? Let's dig in!
Patrick Swayze may be fighting for his life against pancreatic cancer, but he also is battling the tabloids.
The Dirty Dancing star has released a statement to People, responding to recent reports in the National Enquirer that his cancer has spread to his liver and that the actor was preparing for his death by saying goodbye to his family.
Swayze has been responding well to treatment since he was diagnosed earlier this year and recently wrapped filming on his A&E TV series The Beast. The actor called the latest reports "lies" and referred to tabloids as "the only thorn in my side."

The loss of abilities may have scared the heroes and villains in the previous episode, but in the conclusion of "The Eclipse," it was the lessons each character learned from his or her inabilities that seemed to matter most. Nathan decides that some power was necessary in a world of evil, Daphne learned to forgive herself and make her past wrongs right, Hiro remembers that heroes exist to give hope to the hopeless, Mohinder learns that the evil brewing inside of him may not be a side effect of his injection and Sylar decides that no one can really ever change himself. Throw in a few deaths (some permanent, others not so much) and the regaining of powers (that was quick, huh?) and you have one wild episode. Let's dig in!
What a relief it was to get through an episode this season without a dinner-table meltdown. But that doesn't mean there wasn't plenty of drama. Just as the house Nora bought was crumbling down around her (and the Walkers she recruited for do-it-yourself demolition), the characters were each caught in their own unique messes. Rebecca was given a job she didn't deserve at Walker Landing (thanks to her CEO mom), Robert couldn't decide if he trusted the second-guessing birth mother more than trying surrogacy, Sarah was trying to get enough money to launch Greenatopia (and pay Kyle and Ethan's rent) without selling out her partners and, of course, Nora was trying to keep collapsing ceilings from falling on her head. How did it all work out? Let's find out!
