THE MIDDLE “Back to Summer” (Season Finale) Review

THE MIDDLE "Back to Summer" Season 2 Episode 24 (Season Finale) – Frankie’s new tiki torch doesn’t save her from end of school year crises like Brick once again almost being held back, Sue’s quest for a perfect attendance award, and Axl’s involuntary volunteer work in the "Back to Summer’ season finale of THE MIDDLE.
