This week marked the penultimate episode of season 4 of Parenthood. With the show’s fate unknown for a fifth season, the writers have a lot of ground to cover with several major storylines needing a resolution. Tonight’s episode finally started the process of closure for several members of the Braverman family.
In the midst of Kristina’s health crisis, Victor’s uneasy transition with Joel and Julia and Amber’s troubled new beau, I had completely forgotten about Max’s student council victory and promise for new vending machines. The saga of the vending machines continued this week as Max was so anxious about the situation, he was contemplating transferring schools. Terrific mother that she is, Kristina became determined get those darned vending machines back. I had no doubt that the PTA moms had met their match in Kristina. With the promise of healthier options, Kristina got the machines back in the school and alas, Max had closure.
