The Episode Review

The wedding shook us in the middle The fact that Lino’s family was not being there was definitely disappointing. It was a touching moment to watch Hershel become close to Lino, however, and I’m happy that Lynn did not do anything to ruin the occasion.

It’s interesting to observe Lino’s parents, and I can appreciate the mother wanting to support her son while simultaneously being respectful and submissive to her husband. It’s a tough position to find yourself in. Lino’s father has put his family in emotional turmoil due to his own ego. What will he do to hold his grudge against Lino for deciding to follow his own path?
