Truths and Lies...

Lies, deception and secrets have a way of coming back and biting you in the butt. That's what this week's episode of Everwood taught us (in case you didn't already know). The Bright and hannah saga continues this week with Bright's cheating hanging in the air like the stench of cooked kimchi. He decides he isn't going to tell Hannah what (or who) he did last week. Instead, he tells Ephram, who in turn tells Amy, who in turn yells at Bright for what he did. So, in the end, Bright, shamed by his sister, tells Hannah the truth with Tori Amos' "A Sorta Fairytale" playing in the background. (Yes, I realize the irony.)

Meanwhile, the Abbotts' pursuit of adoption hits a snag when Dr. Abbott's lies about Rose's health start to surface again. It seems you can't alter medical files to delete any mention of your wife's cancer (in case you didn't already know). So, the baby the Abbotts were about to adopt will have to stay in Africa and just hope Angelina Jolie sees his adorable face.

And poor ol' Reid puts himself through hell, all because he's lying to himself. The pre-med major with failing grades shows some initiative by getting himself an internship at Jake's office. Alas, it's to no avail as he gets kicked out of the med program at Colorado A&M.

And finally, in a forboding plotline, Irv and Edna visit his estranged daughter, Cassie, (Nia Long) in San Diego while doing a book tour. Edna finds out that Cassie hates her for taking her father away. But father and daughter resolve years of lies and secrets when Cassie invites Irv to his grandaughter's birthday. Gulp. I hope Irv makes it to the party!
(SPOILER: It's never a good sign when you resolve issues and look forward to the future when your show is promoting a big death!)
