My Review of Life Unexpected 1.12- "Father Unfigured"

Cate gets hit over the head with just how much her father is not a dad, Baze gets a smack over the head about his feelings for Cate, and Lux finally agrees to let Cate and Baze adopt her.

Wow, I feel so bad for Cate. She finds the cards from her father and leaps to the conclusion that he actually wanted to be a part of her life. So, she impulsively decides to go find him and get him to be her dad. Despite a few bumps (and chickens ) along the way, everything seems to be going along swimmingly. She and her father talk and seem to connect. They even make plans for him to come to Portland and Cate plans on asking him to walk her down the aisle. Only thing is, he totally disappoints her and never comes to pick her up to go to Portland. She goes to hims and finds out that he never wanted to be a dad. She so desperately wanted him to be a part of her life and he; being a total a$$; makes promises and then breaks them. I am glad that it gave her a chance to patch things up with her mom though.

One other nice thing about the road trip was that it gave Baze, Cate, and Lux the chance to be a real family. They were so cute together all singing and enjoying life. Watching Baze lecture Lux about safe driving just before he hit the chicken truck was vastly amusing (particularly since I had been in a fender bender a few hours before [and yes, everything is all right, thanks for asking]). This trip allowed Lux to see that Baze does have feelings for Cate and that she does want them to officially be her parents again.

I am also glad that Cate and Baze patched things up. Baze is a screw-up and a little loony, but he is honestly trying to be better and it is nice to see Cate acknowledge that. We've seen him really change his actions so that he can be a dad for Lux and not just her father.

Poor Bug. His past comes back and takes a big bite out of his a$$. I love that Lux was so willing to help him out (unsurprisingly) and that Baze so easily forgave him (a little surprising). Considering everything, Baze took everything remarkably well.

Next week. Cate and Ryan get married. Or do they?
