While the episode opened with a “previously on” clip show, there wasn’t really much of a reason for it. This is especially true for last Tuesday’s episode, where most of the show was spent dilly-dallying around with useless information instead of advancing the plot lines.
The useless information I’m referring to is Adam and Kristina’s love life, which has been suffering because of the stress of keeping up with Max. Way too much time was spent on Kristina’s accidental complaining about her lack of romance to her husband and Max’s understanding behavioral aide, Gabby. This resulted in Adam discussing the same matter with Sarah, for who knows what reason. However, progress was made in showing Gabby’s complicated job of not only figuring out what makes a child with Asperger’s tick, but also counseling the parents involved. Gabby essentially taught Max discipline here, by using a book about lizards to get him to change his plans and convincing him to play foursquare with a little girl at the park through promising him another pet lizard. It seems as if she is just bribing Max, but I’m not going to question child psychology through a TV show’s interpretation of it.
