Everwood: Giving Up The Girl

Fresh | monday | 9/8c trailer

When Jake's (Scott Wolf) girlfriend (guest star Jessica Collins) from Los Angeles arrives in Everwood unexpectedly, Nina (Stephanie Niznik) comes to his rescue with a shoulder to lean on and the possibility of more. Meanwhile, Harold (Tom Amandes) and Rose (Merrilyn Gann) worry about Amy (Emily VanCamp) after she sets her mind to auditioning for a rigorous ballet program in Denver, and Andy (Treat Williams) unintentionally humiliates Delia (Vivien Cardone) in front of her hockey team.

Gregory Smith and Chris Pratt also star and Anne Heche guest stars. Sherri Cooper wrote the episode directed by David Paymer

This actually looks like another good episode. I hope they keep things up. I like the idea of Amy going after a dream that she abandoned, and of course, we don't know if she'll give up or keep going.

Yeah, this looks like a very interesting episode, indeed. I look foward to diving in and seeing some of Jake's past as it just might give some clues as to why Jake is in Everwood, in addition to how people in his past view him. Also, funny how Jake forgot to mention to Nina that he has a girlfriend. Hmmm. Should be very interesting.

Amy and the dance thing should also be an interesting storyline. I just hope that she doesn't get so into it that she is shattered if it doesn't go the way she wants it to.

And Andy humiliating Delia. Poor Delia. Then again, I love that we are finally getting to see Delia for a change.

This episode sounds good. For once, the storyline doesn't seem to revolve around Ephram, which is strange. Not that I mind when they do...

I am so glad that Emily's doing more dancing. She is an absolutely fabulous dancer. Her older sister is a professionnal dancer, and it was via dance that Emily got into acting (as I'm sure you all know). I remember going to see her ballet recital when we were, like, eight. That was fun.

Very excited to see someone from Jake's past, although I really hope he and Nina don't hook up. Whatever happened to the Nina-loving-Andy storyline that they had awhile back? Bring that back!!!

Thanks so much for the extra bit regarding Emily and dancing, EphramIsHot. I also didn't know about her sister being a professional dancer. That's awesome. I think it's so cool that you are related to Emily.

I'm also with you regarding Andy/Nina. Something tells me that Andy/Amanda and possibly Jake/Nina are only detours until Andy/Nina. My guess is they are saving Andy/Nina for the last part of this season, or maybe even early part of season 4. I think they are saving Andy/Nina for the right moment, because my guess is once they finally get together, it's all about permanent. I can't wait to see it.

When watching the episode tonight, look for a resemblance between the character Dougie and Bobby Brady from The Brady Bunch.

I'll explain after the episode airs.

Ok, I noticed one thing tonight, but it won't work unless Amy continues dancing. I think Mr. Berlanti gave us a little forshadowing tonight. When Amy told Ephram she was going to get off the pill because of dancing, yes he had a good comeback line. But, I have a feeling that it was done for another reason. I think they were forshadowing events ahead, and I am entirely spoiler-free, I am just guessing on this one.

Well, we couldn't see Dougie very well (because he was in hockey gear) but he was played by Joe Lookinland. Bobby Brady was played by Mike Lookinland who is now a cameraman for Everwood. I think Joe is Mike's son.

Dougie was Bobby Brady's son.

Oh yeah, I remember him saying that he was a cameraman for "Everwood" on some TV Land special. Huh, go figure.

As usual, I will save my comments of the entire episode for later, but I have to mention one thing..

Hands down, BEST moment of this episode? The Amy/Delia scene at the end. I was melting during that entire conversation. First off, they have so much chemistry together and secondly, I felt such an immediate "sisterly" bond between these two. Their conversation was simply precious. I LOVE that Amy was the "female figure" for Delia. OMG, I love that scene soooooo much. All about adorable. They better continue on with the amazing Amy/Delia because I am so in love with these two! I have prayed for a scene like this between the two of them for a long time now, and finally, tonight, I got exactly what I wanted. YAY.

Wow. Was anyone else as pleasantly surprised at the quility of this episode as I was? I'm very pleased with how this turned out. (Excpet Andy and Amanda. *vomits*)

I'm really glad that Amy and Ephram are doing so well. I loved to see the continuity of how Ephram is still a little jittery around Amy.. watching his step because it's only been a little while since the last episode. I'm glad to see it happen that way. I always love Amy, even when she isn't being such a great person, but I think she was written extremely well this episode. Her dialogue with Delia at the end was very true to her heart and I think it was a huge for her own personal growth to hear what she was saying and I think she'll take to heart the words she spoke. Her speech to me seemed more out of self realization.

Kudos to Ephram for saying what we have all been thinking. When he told her that she still has everything, even without dance, I was extremely happy. Aphram is the one who would have nothing, but Amy is clearly intelligent and hard-working, so I don't see her having much of a problem. I cannot wait to see where Amy's realization takes her, because I truly see her becoming a doctor or something along those lines.

I hate that Treat and Amanda are still having this affair. At least her husband is no longer in the house while they are in the bedroom. Someone mentioned in TWoP how climactic it would be if Treat and Amanda are in the kitchen, while John in the other room regained mobility to his hands and steered towards his wife in the kitchen just as they kiss. That would be devastating to John, but I think it is only fair that he realizes what has happened. I will be disappointed if John regains his health and Amanda just leaves and acts as if it never happened. Haven't the screwed over John enough?

I'm all for Treat and Nina, but since I hate Treat right now.. I can say that the scene between Nina and Jake at the end was near perfect. It was so believable. I hope to see this develop a little bit more, but in the end I think it will fall back onto Andy and Nina. I don't think Andy deserves her though. I like Cameron, but she was a little to perky for my tastes. Still, she had some funny moments.

I don't know what else to say. Overall I think that this was a great episode. I loved the Amy scenes and the Nina scenes. I am also glad Delia got some time to have her own story, sadly.. we all know it is just going to go back and ignore them for weeks. Too bad. Did anyone else notice that this is one of the stronger episodes.. and it focused (primarily) on the main players of the show. Yes.. there was a side story with Jake, but that was through Nina. It shows that the show needs to stick to its roots.

Well, you don't know many Lookinlands, do you? That would be pretty strange if they weren't related. BTW, I adore Garden State as well.

Wilpen, I agree. That last scene: ADORABLE!

wilpen, totally loved that last scene. It was a total surprise. I don't think those two have ever talked before. Andy mentioned who could help Delia, but not Amy. I hope there are more moments between them

funny seeing Principal Greeen. I didn't like how he told Amy she had to lose ten pounds. Jake's ex girlfriend was the reporter who was trying to make Principal Green look bad and Joey said not in your frosted blonde dreams barbie

Now there is a hardcore DC fan.

I just remembered him from DC, but now it's all coming back to me.
