'Brothers & Sisters': Is Rebecca up to no good?

Posted on

Vancamp_lHoly snap! After the single funniest episode of Brothers & Sisters‘ freshman season — I insist that Susan Sullivan, Jenna Elfman, and Perry King be booked for return engagements playing Bloods and Crips-style games of charades and trivia against the Walkers — it was jarring (but awesome) to wrap with newfound half-sibling Rebecca’s shocking revelation that her brother-in-law kissed her during a guitar lesson. (Ewww!) But here’s the question that kept plaguing me last night as I was trying to fall asleep: Is Rebecca (Emily VanCamp, pictured) telling the truth about Joe’s indiscretion, or is she merely trying to stir up trouble as revenge for the way Sarah vindictively broke the news to her about her paternity? I’ve got a feeling it’ll all come to a head by the season finale, and I for one, can hardly wait — so long as the show’s writers don’t skimp on Nora (Sally Field) and Kitty (Calista Flockhart) giddily bribing children to help them commit petty larceny. Oh, and best line of the night? “What about your grandmother? She drinks a lot, doesn’t she? Have you ever seen her with a whole lot of bandages all over her face?” Put that on Field’s Emmy reel and call it a day!
