After saving the life of loser leach and so-called best friend Bryce, Bradin thinks he might want to become a doctor. Well, I guess I can see him trading a surf board for a stethoscope, becoming one of those hot residents who makes the nurses and the patients swoon. The timing of his realization is perfect actually, since it helped Bradin decide to ditch Bryce at the height of his annoyingness. (His Jeff Spicoli act has gotten way old; how many times can we listen to his lame platitudes like there's plenty of time to be a loser what's your rush?)No way he's concerned about Bradin's career; he's just worried the free ride might be over for good if Bradin decides to go to college. Looks like he'll have to mooch off someone else now. Meanwhile, Bryce's accident was a good excuse to bring back his sister Faith to Playa Linda she has such great chemistrywith Bradin. But I was surprised to see her sharing scenes with Nikki. After all, the two actresses are sisters, and they really, really look it. (Danielle and Kay Panabaker are only three years apart.) Makes me think that's the reason Bradin hasn't planted one on the brainy beauty. Cause that would be like kissing his sister, which is just plain-old nasty. Anyway, there are a few loose ends to tie up before next week's series finale, most notably the on-again, off-again relationship between Johnny and Ava. I've been hoping for a wedding, but since they didn't even kiss in this ep, that seems a little rushed. Then again, the way Ava can be so crazy-impulsive, you never, ever know.
