Jack lets go
17 November 2011 | by dismaldreamSee all my reviews

This episode is about letting go.

It focuses on the the strained relationship between Jack and Karen. Karen of course represents the hippie culture and movement while Jack hearkens back to old fashioned days.

It is mostly annoying throughout the episode to watch Karen be the selfish C*** rebel without a cause that shes always been. We witness the back and forth battle between father and daughter but this time it may be for the last time. For me, it is difficult to watch Karen be so forthright about her obstinacy with her cold shoulder forever turned to her family. Still, the saving grace happens the last 3 or 4 minutes of the episode because we get to see Jack show some real emotion for once.

The end line is worth the price of admission.
