Separation Anxiety Season 2, Episode 13

After a long break Brothers & Sisters is back and we can finally begin to get answers to the pressing questions that have been plaguing fans. Will Robert win the nomination? Is Rebecca truly a Walker? Will Nora move cross-country with Isaac? While that last one may not have been weighing on our minds, it was the central issue in tonight's show. Word leaked, as it always does, that Isaac was going to ask his lady love to move in with him and immediately all the little Walkers began to fret that Mommy might finally cut the apron strings. Never fear. After crashing Nora and Isaac's romantic dinner and playing dumb as to its purpose, the clan set out to keep Nora at home. A golf outing with the boys turned into an inquisition for Isaac. "How much do you owe on your home?" "Is your prostate fine?" Then Kitty, supposedly Isaac's dear friend, told him that he was asking too much and that Nora would not be happy. Nice. We're not surprised that Nora changed her mind and let Isaac go home alone. As for Robert and his political aspirationsWell, it's three months later in the show's chronology and he has "suspended" his campaign after losing big in the primaries. I did my happy dance at this notification that the political storyline was over but then Robert started talking of secretly missing campaigning even though he was enjoying his life with Kitty and their new quest for fertility. I knew something was up. As it turns out it looks like the guy from The White Shadow will be offering Robert the vice-presidency slot on his ticket. This truly is the plot that won't die. However, another hinted at twist is starting to percolate. It's Rebecca's first birthday as a Walker, complete with Nora's homemade cake and a gift from the mysterious David that leads to more questions about Rebecca's true parentage. The necklace, which once belonged to David's mother, was a loaded gift. It got Holly's temper going and finally prompted Rebecca to go get a @#%^# DNA test. It's about time. Holly finally admitted that there was a slight chance that William may not be the father. I feel for Rebecca if that turns out to be the case, but on the upside she will, at least, now have a father she can get to know in the flesh instead of through raucous Walker re-tellings. In between the drama, we were treated to some fun moments from the gang. Kevin, always good for a giggle, started to break down at the thought of Nora leaving and big sis Sarah had to slap him to stop the meltdown. Rebecca's grown-out bangs were applauded, though in all honesty her bangs only made her look like a teenager, it was no Keri Russell Felicity debacle. Tommy was likeable. Please keep the weight of the world off of his shoulders. Kevin and Sarah realizing that the food was store-bought was yet another classic moment for these two. And of course, the family brawl that topped off the birthday party. As Holly said, it wouldn't be a Walker event with one. It definitely wouldn't be our show without it either.
