Parenthood 2014 continues with Julia and Joel‘s divorce proceedings in the farewell season of Parenthood Season 6. I don’t know what Parenthood Season 6 spoilers predict on those two, but I’m hoping for the best! Here’s tonight’s recap of Episode 7 of the final season of Parenthood 2014.
The show starts with the cutest little girl in the world climbing into bed with cousin Amber. Oh, that’s little Nora Braverman, followed by Max (giving Amber all kinds of annoying instructions), while Adam and Kristina are out of town getting funds for the school. Oh, poor Amber.
Zeek seems to be feeling much better, with grandson Drew driving him around in the big, blue GTO. Yeah, the one Zeek gave his grandson. Zeek leads him to a fast food drive-thru. No way, says Drew, you can’t eat this stuff! There were strings attached when Zeek gave Drew the car, says Grandpa.
Meanwhile, Max is going on about something with Hank, when a troubled Ruby comes in. She hates school. So what’s the problem, asks Dad. Sarah knows it’s a guy (Jake) and then bonds with Ruby that way. The females walk off to talk with Hank asking what’s up?
Julia and Joel are talking with their attorney about the house. Julia thinks they should sell and split the profit. Joel wants her and the kids to have it. Gosh, he looks broken, while Julia looks surprised, and my heart is breaking. The two then get into the elevator to leave, staring in front of them. Julia looks like she’s about to cry, and she grabs Joel’s hand. Crying, she turns for a hug from Joel. Then don’t let him go, Julia! Parenthood 2014 Episode 7 is for sure breaking my heart.
Drew’s girlfriend tries to help him study his math, when Grandpa Zeek calls. Natalie answers. Zeek wants another adventure, but Drew needs to study. Zeek won’t be stopped, though.
Amber is stressing out with Max, who says they have only 11 minutes . . . . So where are they going? A ferry to Alcatraz? Dang, they have a cute dog! And Amber doesn’t have the keys to the vehicle, as the dog watches. And licks. New plan—they’re taking Amber’s car. How hectic this is, as Max tells Amber she will be the worst mother in history.
Ruby asks Sarah why the cool guys don’t like her. They’re not that cool, says Sarah. That will change. It seems that Ruby is getting along pretty well with Sarah, as Mom shows up to get her. Sarah shares Ruby’s disappointment about Jake. And Mom shares her disappointment with Sarah letting Ruby watch “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.” Really?
Julia shows up at Joel’s apartment to talk more about the house. Does he want to change his mind? The day before was emotional, and he should have something out of it. No, says Joel, the house isn’t an asset. “It’s a home.” He hates to walk away, but he knows he hurt her. He doesn’t want the house without her in it with him. Julia is teary-eyed. And she leaves, visibly shaken as she walks away down the hall.
Hank shows up to check on Max. A crying Amber opens the door. Max paces, telling Hank he missed the ferry to go take pictures. Hank decides to walk frantically around with Max. Hank shares his frustrations with what was just happening at his apartment; he was uncomfortable and just walked out. Both agree that they like being alone a lot. They go back and forth between their own issues. Hank is upset with himself for walking out like he did.
Zeek and Drew drive around. Where to now? Some shooting range that is no longer there, it seems. Drew freaks out that Zeek pulls a gun out of the trunk. He told him he needed to study, and Grandpa doesn’t even know how he feels about guns. Let’s go, he says!
Hank makes it back home. He apologizes for panicking and leaving earlier. Sarah says the conversation with the ex was tense, but it’s not all about the movie. It’s about Sarah bonding with Ruby. Hank then shares about Amber crying and Max being upset. Sarah’s upset that Hank didn’t ask Amber why she was crying. Yep, Hank, you should have asked. He didn’t even think about it.
Natalie gets on to Drew about not chilling out with Zeek and humoring him. He almost died recently, after all. She reminds him of that . . . .
Sarah arrives to a house of Max drinking out of a two-liter bottle and the dog eating ice cream. Amber is upstairs cuddling with Nora. Max tells Sarah the “system has broken down.” Long story short, Amber tells about her failures of the day. Sarah says it’s her fault for letting her watch “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” too soon. Ha! Sarah says the baby starts out tiny, and all she will have to deal with is “pooh.” She’ll work her way up to the crazy stuff. Sarah assures her daughter she’s not going to do this alone.
Julia sits at home alone staring at the divorce papers when boyfriend (I don’t remember his name, because I don’t care to!) shows up at the door. Does she want to be alone? No, come on it, says Julia. There’s no reason anymore. (Yes, there is, Julia! Yes, there is!)
So they drink some wine. Julia didn’t expect it to happen so fast, she says. Her marriage will be over as soon as she signs her name, she reflects. Then he asks about the house. She got it. Fantastic, yeah, as she looks not-so-happy, as she was prepared to let the house go, along with all the memories. They decide to stop on the wine and call it a night. Good, he’s leaving.
Hank visits his ex to say that Sarah doesn’t want to replace her as Ruby’s mother. She knows that. Hank realizes he’s not good at communicating. Really, Hank, really, she asks? Hank admits he has been a problem and is talking to a “shrink.” And Hank really thinks he has Asperger’s. And the ex doesn’t know what to say. Hank realizes it must have been hard to be married to him. Yes, she admits, and wishes she had known. Hanks says that now he will try harder with everything.
So Joel is over talking baseball—the Royals—with his soon-to-be ex-father-in-law, Zeek. What’s going on? Zeek knows something is going on. Joel says he is saying goodbye. Zeek has been his role model, and he thanks him and will miss the family. Done, asks Zeek? Yep, gotta let her go. Zeek says he’s giving up. No, it’s what Julia wanted, says Joel. Zeek asks Joel if he loves his kids. Does he love his wife? “You know I do.” Zeek says he took Joel in as his own son. “Look at me,” says Zeek. “You love her. You fight for her. Don’t leave.” Yes, Joel! Go!!!
Mom shows up the next day for Ruby to take her to some place Ruby has been dying to go. (I didn’t catch it—sorry!) Ruby is excited, and wants Hank to go, too. And they steal him away from Sarah. Awwwww. No fair or Sarah.
Drew shows up to catch Grandpa Zeek eating a cookie. Zeek is doing his little in-house golf game. Drew steals him away for an adventure. Yep. A shooting range. Drew is making up for the last time. Zeek teaches Drew to be careful with a gun as he would with a “dangerous, beautiful woman.”
Hank and family seem to all be getting along, while Amber seems to be feeling better, spending time reading to Nora. Joel, back at his apartment, suddenly jumps up to get in the car. As lyrics “Would you give it up?” go on in the background, Joel drives to Julia’s. He tells her that a year ago, she said to fight or her, and he was an idiot. Now, he doesn’t want to spend another day without her, and he wants to fight for her. What will she do?
