Recap: "S3X"


This episode of Brothers & Sisters definitely lived up to its name. Coming off a monthlong break, the show picked up right where it left off and threw in some raunch for good measure. Sarah was on the prowl, ultimately "crunching some numbers" with a steamy Ojai accountant; Nora was once again wooed by her British architect beau, Roger; and Kevin and Scotty were nearly persuaded into a threesome by one of Kevin's exes. Robert wants to move his recovery into the bedroom, but Kitty has a headache - and maybe an intellectual affair. Let's kiss and tell, shall we?


Before we get down to all the bow-chicka-wow-wow, let's address something serious: Tommy calls Julia, and tells her he is coming home. Naturally, this news brightens Nora's world, but it sends the rest of the Walkers into panic, as they all urge Nora not to "pounce." She is dismayed by her children's lack of faith in her, and all she needs to prove them wrong is several bags of fertilizer. Yep, she's gonna garden 'til her boy comes home.


Nora's gardening gets cut short when Roger the architect with the open marriage drops by in the middle of a midnight "man in the moon" marigolds-planting session. Nora tries to blow him off, but then he drops the D-word, followed by the L-word. As much as Nora is thrilled by the divorce and that crazy little thing called love, she tells Roger her life is as messy as her mud-streaked gardening clothes until she gets Tommy back home and settled. That doesn't keep her from dreaming though. The two chat about selling her home and splitting their time between Paris, London and a beach house, where all they do is read and drink. As beautiful as it all sounds, a phone call from Julia reminds Nora that her fantasy will have to wait. When he hears that Nora thinks she might be feeling the L-word too, Roger confirms that he is willing to bide his time. Too bad that Julia's call was only to tell Nora that Tommy wasn't coming home after all, that he needed to find himself.
