5.12 Mr Right (Never Broke and Promise)
Brian and Justin keep barreling towards marriage even as Justin’s career as a painter awaits him in New York. Melanie and Lindsay ask for Brian and Michael’s blessing to take their children out of the country, with Michael agreeing, but Brian disagreeing and then finally agreeing after some pressure from Lindsay.
Drew and Emmett break up after Emmett realizes that Drew needs to fuck around for a while before he will be capable of having a relationship. We meet Ted’s new boyfriend Tad, who immediately starts calling the shots in the relationship.
“Mr Right (Never Broke and Promise) was directed by John Fawcett, his last of three episodes. His first was season 2’s “The Dangers of Sex and Drugs” where Justin becomes a gogo-boy at Babylon and Emmett and George Shickle start their world tour. Loved that episode, and not just because we got a scene of Justin in briefs.
It first aired in the US on July 31st, 2005. It was written by Michael MacLennan, his last of 13 episodes. He wrote two episodes of Peter Paige’s show, The Fosters in season 3.
