'The Secret Life of the American Teenager': Another season finale and another baby

Are they going to be having a baby on every season finale of "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" from here on out? I don't think it's a bad plan necessarily, they talk about sex often enough and it's definitely a way to keep the cast young.

I said last week that it was weird for Adrian and Ricky to be going to couples therapy while still in high school. I am sticking with that assertion - it's weird, just plain weird. I'm not at all surprised that Adrian set up an appointment for the two of them at Ricky's therapist without talking to Ricky first, but that's even more wrong than just going to couples therapy in general.

Leaving aside the weirdness of the idea, Adrian didn't seem all that serious during the session at first. She seemed to be doing her usual "shock the adult" thing. Doc Fields did a great job at cutting through her horse hockey, but I think that was completely against her will. I don't think Adrian went there with the intent of divulging real information, I think he just forced it out of her. Her entire attitude until she started talking about Antonio was just her putting on her usual show, so why spend all that money on a shrink and force Ricky into it if she wasn't planning on taking it seriously?

Yes, it appears as though therapy worked (at least momentarily) for Adrian and Ricky, but it was only necessary because Adrian was unwilling to really talk until they were there. If Adrian had just bothered to tell Ricky before then why she felt the way she did they wouldn't have had to go to therapy in the first place.

I dont think they plan on every season a new baby being born. Molly Ringwald did acctually become pregnant and the writers just added it to the show.
