"Daddy's Little Girl" Season 4, Episode 9

It would be really nice if just once Tom could have a fun, conflict-free day. Getting lucky and having a lucky day apparently do not go hand in hand. It's good to see that he and Kyle are, if not exactly back to being a normal family, at least not averse to working together. I'm not sure if they're more or less dysfunctional than the Tylers, but at least they don't seem to be on totally opposite sides anymore. As for the Tylers, well, it could be an SVU plot if it didn't also involve telekinesis and reverse aging. Let's not forget that Richard did try to kill Isabelle at the end of last season, and has now kidnapped her, drugged her and turned her back into a toddler. I'm shocked any parent would voluntarily return to the diaper days, but to each his own. What's interesting about this whole situation (besides, you know, the whole going from 20 to 2 in a day via the amazing antioxidant powers of water), is that we've witnessed a complete role-reversal. Last season Isabelle was the one making dangerous unilateral decisions and hurting government agents with psychic power while Richard tried to help keep her under control and stay in line. And now? Isabelle is sort of respectable and Richard is the one pinning people to ceilings with his mind. Oh, and he's smoking hot. Did I mention that? Meanwhile, on the other side of Seattle, there were some really exhausted would-be bobby-soxers. To be fair to Tess, she didn't realize that making people dance for days on end to golden oldies was torture; she had no idea where she was or when it was or even that she had schizophrenia. It looks like she's been cured since Shawn helped her out, so now she and Kevin can go back to being the most adorable couple on this show since the death of Lily. But now it's time to cue the ominous music and take stock of the questions raised in the last three minutes. What's all this about Kevin devising a way to test Promicin tolerance? What's the deal with Tom's Marked mole growing back? Can little Isabelle remember everything? It was a lot to set up, but this show has always been really good about not leaving us hanging for too long. What are you all hoping to see resolved by the end of the season? show less
