Parenthood 2014 the farewell season continues with the Bravermans. What’s up with Crosby? And Max has a girlfriend? And are Parenthood Season 6 spoilers right about Julia and Joel? Here’s tonight’s recap of Episode 6 of the final season of Parenthood 2014.
Oh, and there’s adorable Amber and her baby bump. Brother Drew goes shopping with her to look at cribs, changing tables, diaper genies, etc . . . . Then there’s the stroller with the cell phone charger and other high-tech stuff. Overwhelming, Amber? Yep, as Drew checks out price tags, did he say, “Let’s go to Target”?
Meanwhile, Max is using tips from a magazine to show his gal, Dylan, that he likes her, such as telling her she smells like baby powder. She tells him he has nice eyes and is funny without trying to be. Max’s parents keep walking by his room, and the kids notice. Max closes the door.
Ruby blows up with Hank over her mother not understanding her, and adds that things are better with “you guys.” Hey, that includes Sarah, who soaks that in. Ruby wants to live with Hank. Text your mom, then. Yep, already did. And Ruby is talking about a get-together the next night. Is she using her dad to get to do what she wants? Sarah gives Hank signals about what questions to ask. Yeah, he’s going to call and check in with Ruby’s mom.
Amber walks in on her uncles, Adam and Crosby, at the studio. Amber goes on about how much she has learned working for them, but she has also contributed with ideas and relating to the artists. The guys agree. Amber says yeah, she’s growing, except for her salary. She wants to work towards being an “artistic partner,” paid a “salary commiserate” with her “abilities.” Good speech, Amber. The guys will consider it.
Hank shares with Sarah that he’s “out of [his] league” with his daughter. Sarah suggests the three of them have a Braverman-type game night. She points out that the daughter wants him to feel bad to get her way, basically.
Jabbar talks to parents, Crosby and Jasmine, about wanting to go to Harry Potter world (where’s that?) for his birthday. They will check it out.
Drew’s girlfriend, Natalie, tells him he doesn’t have to stress and pick his major right now. It doesn’t really matter, does it, she asks? Yep, it does, says Drew. Maybe economics? Natalie sees him more as a poet.
At Max’s house, he asks if his gal, Dylan, can stay the night, since they’ve had two dates. No intercourse, though, says Max, since he’s only a 2 1/2 with her. Why can’t she sleep over? Dylan texts who parents, who say it’s fine. Really? A sleepover? She plays with baby sister, Nora. Kristina is going to get another room ready for girlfriend, Dylan.
The Braverman uncles discuss Amber’s situation. They want to give her a raise but can’t. Crosby says they should because she’s their niece. Adam says yeah, that’s why he didn’t fire her three months ago. She walks in with snacks. Aw. Busted, guys. She leaves.
Ruby couldn’t go out to party, and says that playing games with Sarah and Dad is lame. Amber shows up to join the “happy” trio.
Kristina is at home eating popcorn, when Max’s girl comes down in her daughter’s (Haddie’s) pajamas. She and Max are separating fora while, says Dylan. She likes hanging out with Kristina, anyway, as they watch To Kill a Mockingbird. Her parents are too uptight. She leans over on Kristina’s shoulder. Kristina seems to like that.
Back at Hank’s, Sarah and Amber take over some game with guessing clues. Ruby and Dad try to do as well as they do. Ruby seems to be kind of getting into it, and Hank does pretty well with it, too–for a while. Until Hank couldn’t recall Ruby’s being allergic to peanuts. And she storms off. Dang. And it was going so well . . . . Sort of.
Adam tells Max it’s time to go to bed and maybe first say goodnight to Dylan. Does she like me about a 3 yet, asks Max, because she did say his eyes are nice. Heading that way, Max, says Dad. Heading that way.
Adam shares with wife, Kristina, that it seems Dylan likes Max. Kristina says that she feels maybe it’s more about spending time with Nora and Kristina. She wants to make sure it’s about Max and not just the benefits of his family. She likes him, says Adam. “He has nice eyes.” Who’s right? Time will tell . . . .
Amber spends the night at Hank’s after all the games, when Ruby comes in. “Don’t tell my dad!” So what’s going on with Ruby? Yep, she drank. A lot. Amber holds back her hair as she throws up all over the toilet. Thank you, thank you, says a grateful Ruby.
Jasmine, meanwhile, has estimated the Harry Potter tour, and brings her findings to Crosby. Nope, says Crosby, no way. We can’t afford that. He’s losing his business? So what was he doing there all the time, asks Jasmine? Hiding, he says. “Playing Candy Crush.” He’s afraid they’ll lose the house. And he’s sorry. Jasmine loves the house, too, but it doesn’t freak her out. His not talking to her is what scares her. And taking off on his motorcycle without saying anything–that, too. She says he’s all they need. “You’re my guy.”
Jasmine and Crosby share the news with Jabbar that Harry Potter World is just too expensive, but maybe one day they can go. Jabbar can help work for it, he says. Aw, sweet kid.
Amber wakes up Hank’s daughter, Ruby, with coffee, which she doesn’t drink. It will make you feel better, says Amber. Amber promised not to tell Hank, but she says she won’t always be available to lie for her. Or cover for her. Ruby says some peer pressure got to her with the “beer bong” the night before. Amber reminds her to remember how crappy she felt after the night before. She adds that her dad is trying, while Amber’s didn’t, and she’s lucky to have Hank trying. “He’s doing the best he can.” Ruby appreciates the relationship between Amber and Sarah. Amber says it took a while to get there, and she was much worse than Ruby at her age. Really? asks Ruby. Wow, Amber seems to have made a whole lot of difference in a short period of time.
So Drew is talking with Uncle Adam about future dreams and options with majors. Explore your dreams, says Adam. No, says Crosby, as he walks in. “Make as much money as you can.” Peace of mind, and “green is good.” Conflicting advice. Sorry, Drew.
At the school, Kristina tells Dylan she couldn’t get in touch with her parents. Out of town, says Dylan. Mom wants to make sure that Dylan isn’t coming over for the family time, but mostly for Max. She says that Max is sometimes funny and sometimes boring, and she likes to be with Kristina when he is boring. Then she insists that Dylan come over after school. She shouldn’t go home alone.
Uncles Adam and Crosby tell Amber they’re sorry she overheard them talking about their business situation. Amber is upset they weren’t honest with her. She’s a “piggy” and can’t get another job. No way, say the uncles. She is not a “piggy,” and they have a back-up plan. Do they, really?
Kristina notices, too, that they are overdrawn on a couple of things. Adam is blowing up, too. Everybody needs stuff. He’s sick of it. Wifey points out that he likes to take care of things, but she is going to take care of him. Hands start moving, and Adam starts smiling. Woah!
While Hank and Sarah are watching a movie, Ruby walks in and apologizes about her behavior at game night. Hank is surprised at her apology. Wowza. Ruby thought it was cool that they wanted to spend time with her. She thanks Sarah for trying to “do something special” with her. She reaches down to tell her dad she loves him and is going to a friend’s to study. Wait, says Dad. No, really, Dad, this is for real, and she’ll call him when she gets there. “I love you, too,” says Hank. Wow! “Enjoy the win,” says Sarah to Hank.
Drew is still obsessing about what his major should be for college. His family, his sister depends on him. Natalie says not to worry. Yep, he does. His parents can’t pay for his college, and he does need to help his sister. Sorry, Natalie. Not rich like your folks, obviously.
Uncle Adam tells Amber, while she’s cleaning the studio, that he doesn’t really have a back-up plan, but he’s going to keep at it, until Amber gets the raise she deserves.
Kristina watches at home as Dylan plays with Nora and enjoys the smells of lasagna baking. “Are you sick of me yet?” Dylan asks Max. Nope. Kristina seems satisfied. Happy, even.
At Crosby’s place, Jasmine tells Jabbar to go outside to get his shoes. Surprise birthday party! Good job, parents. Good job. It’s good to see Crosby at least somewhat happy. Almost as good as the real (Harry Potter) thing.
Next week on Parenthood 2014, Julia gets her divorce papers. Dang. Zeek tells Joel to fight for her. Parenthood Season 6 Spoilers show Julia’s and Joel’s hands reaching out in an elevator.
