Max Burkholder and Peter Krause
Since first learning that their son has Asperger's, Parenthood's Adam (Peter Krause) and Kristina Braverman (Monica Potter) have fought tirelessly to give Max every available opportunity and not let it dictate his life.
But how do you protect your child when the rest of the world doesn't see it that way? In Tuesday's episode (10/9c, NBC), Adam and Kristina push Max (Max Burkholder) not to abandon his love of basketball and pass out of gym class. However, there's more to Max's sudden decision to back out of the sport than meets the eye.

If you're still drying your eyes after last week's emotional goodbye between Kristina (Monica Potter) and Alex (Michael B. Jordan) on Parenthood, you're not alone. Just don't even think about putting the tissues away yet.
"I had no idea that this scene would move people. Michael and I just did it and it was like, 'OK, that was good.' But I came in last week and our crew members were talking about that scene," Potter tells TVGuide.com. "I thought, 'Wow that's pretty incredible that people are having this strong of a reaction. Which is great — it was very moving and touching to me.'" However, just as Kristina and the Bravermans say goodbye to one (almost) member of the family, they will welcome a new arrival with the birth of their baby in Tuesday's episode, titled "Nora," airing at 10/9c on NBC. Potter talked with TVGuide.com about Kristina's surprising delivery room partner, the art of pretending to give birth (hint: it involves grape jelly and cream cheese!) and the high emotions ahead for Kristina that come with this new bundle of joy...
Brace yourself, Parenthood fans. The Braverman clan is about to expand. Twice.
In the second season finale, Julia (Erika Christensen) and Joel (Sam Jaeger) set their sights on adoption just as Kristina (Monica Potter) and Adam (Peter Krause) got the surprising news about baby No. 3.

Thursday night's NBC All-Star Party, held in conjunction with the Television Critics Association press tour, brought out a rather interesting mix of characters: A new superhero (The Cape's David Lyons), a legendary TV producer (David E. Kelley), Beverly Hills socialites (Paris and Kathy Hilton) and even an Oscar winner (Kathy Bates).
