Highlights

While the series has had dry humor, as James was odd as ever and Alyssa seemed like she made the mistake of remembering things with rose-colored glasses, so came our worst fear – this was an unnecessary season. However, with Alyssa finding bolt cutters and getting back to her mischievous ways, so came hope. Almost as if they knew they were starting to lose people, so they decided to give them what they wanted – even if it didn’t necessarily make sense considering these two have changed over the last two years. Well, at least the seemed to up until that tow yard.
