Brothers and Sisters is back for a fourth season. The Walker family had a difficult time last year, even with the happy welcoming of a new baby. It seems that very little goes right for this large family and I think viewers are hoping that something will go right for this lovable family in this upcoming season.
The Walker family is getting ready to celebrate the engagement of Justin (Dave Annable) and Rebecca (Emily VanCamp). Nora (Sally Field) has a sense of foreboding which is clearly the car accident that Justin and Rebecca nearly have within the first few minutes of the episode.
Kitty (Calista Flockhart) and Robert (Rob Lowe) are trying to work things out after Kitty had an emotional affair last season and they almost split up for good. It is obvious though that things are still strained between them. Are they trying to work things out for love or for what the repercussions would be for Robert’s political life?
Kevin (Matthew Rhys) and Scotty (Luke Macfarlane) are looking into having a baby of their own using a donor egg and a separate surrogate mother to carry the baby. However, Scotty is having issue with how much it is going to cost to have the procedure done. But it turns out he is really having second thoughts about them having a baby at all.
While all of this is going on, Kitty is feeling tired all the time. She claims it is an illness she and her son, Evan are passing back and forth or perhaps it is allergies. But when it doesn’t go away, she gets a blood test taken. She has en enlarged lymph node that the doctor wants to test. We are left hearing the doctor say it is not good news, but nothing more.
Well, things seemed to be going well for the Walker family in this first episode. Then they throw in the whole sickness scare. Obviously, there needs to be some drama in the family drama and Brothers and Sisters seems to find a decent balance with this episode. Hopefully, this will continue throughout the season.
