So the first bonus scenes were Molly commenting on how Amy is moving on. The second bit of bonus footage is Zach learning about birthstones for the cameras. He comes up with such pithy phrases as “How are emeralds made?” I really don’t think Zach understood the concept.
Oh look the marriage is finally over. Should I crow over how I predicted it? No, because it’s sad, but I did predict it. And it looks like Molly graduates. And Matt drama queens over his surgery.
So Tory and Zach are on the Holy Tire Swing. Matt plans to head to Spokane with the family and they’re leaving for . Matt is now all about his neck issues and how awful roadtripping to Spokane might be. They could fly, just saying.
Amy is very pleased about the graduating. She plans to fly up, oddly enough and notes that Matt is on his own. Amy is all “This is our first divorced trip”. Molly is jobseeking, and Amy wants her to get a job close to home and to attend the party that they are obviously planning.
Matt sees his doc. She explains how messed up his neck is. I personally don’t wish spinal surgery on anyone. My sis currently has more titantium than actual bone in her spine and its bad. That said, I wish Matt wasn’t so self involved.
So Matt’s at his desk in his office. Amy is all “how ARE you?” and expresses concern. There’s surgery in LA and he’s taking no one because he’s Matt. Amy has no intention of arguing but she offers to come. Oddly, Matt isn’t flying and suggests Amy join the road trip. She says no, and explains no, a six hour drive with Matt is opposed to the whole plan to spend time with Molly. Jermey and Auj are ditching because a speaking engagement is more important. I merely point out how Amy was SHIT on by the Christians here for going to a speaking engagement when she could have attended Matt’s birthday bash.
Matt wanders into the big house to clear out his office in the bighouse finally. Matt gets emotional as Camerino? Stands in the background and lifts chairs. Matt notes how he has nothing to say as he cleans out his office and how he hates divorce. I merely note how Matt walked out on his wife and staged an episode where he showed off how pleased as punch he was to live alone and have his own little mancave where he and his buddies partied while Amy was left alone.
So Amy is heading to the divorce signing. I find it odd that the office art is blotted out. Amy hates that she is divorcing. Matt is at HIS lawyer’s office, also signing off. It’s all short and Matt and Amy are both shocked how easy it is. I merely point out that no one hesitates. Matt notes, manfully, that he was never meant to be married. And now a montage of the happy times. Amy is now single! Matt is oddly sadder but frankly I think he knows the cameras are there and of course notes how he won’t be second guessing any decisions.
So Zach and Tory are taking Matt to Spokane in the van. I find it increasingly hilarious that Jeremy and Auj are no where to be seen for this but frankly it doesn’t shock me that when things are awkward, Jer and Auj bail.
Amy and Molly have seared tuna. Amy is all “please live in Portland and you can live at the farm!” and Molly seems hesitant. Meanwhile Tory and Zach are in the van with Matt and I think Amy made the right choice for Molly as Molly is pleased that Amy spent time with her. Matt et al show up at the sushi place. We get a montage of Matt being emotional over Molly leaving for college.
And now graduation. It’s very nice. Amy seems shocked at how fast it is.
Back at the farm, Jer and Auj vapidly note how the speech went and how they basically had no regrets. I think Molly has a boyfriend we aren’t supposed to notice. Also Molly calls everyone to attention. She has a JOB. In Spokane. Good for her. It says a great deal that she did get a job right out of the gate. Matt makes a nice speech about how she is leaving.
Now the kids – Zach, Jer, wives, and Molly are at a fire. Jer plans to “check up” on the farm. Molly says she isn’t terribly worried.
Amy and Matt roll up on a ATV. Matt now has no intention of selling. There’s another montage of photos. Matt fatalistically notes that his work is done.
Zach wanders in to Matt’s terrible double wide. Matt is of course quick to note how he will be crippled. Zach offers to go with him. It feels forced to a point in that they are clearly playing to the cameras. Matt notes how he’s been miserable for years. Matt who fears hieghts, notes how being on a plane makes him comfortable. Zach notes how this is Matt putting on a brave face – TO BE CONTINUED!!!
Lil spoiler – Matt doesn’t die and isn’t a quadriplegic.
Also – kinda noticeable that Jeremy of no discernable job and who wants the farm so bad, isn’t the dutiful son. My whole vibe here, with Jeremy skipping Molly’s graduation while Jacob attended but refused filming and Zach, not Jeremy, manning up for the tough moments… It seems pretty clear who gives a shit about family.
