"You'll See I'm Almost Over You(?)" (First Impressions - "Royal Visit" - Season 9, Episode 17)

So, based off the press release for this upcoming (March 28th) episode, it looks like Alex might actually have already moved on from her disappointment over Professor Fennerman.

Or has she?

“Please Come To Boston” (“Spanks For The Memories” Recap)

You would think after a surprise Alex and Phil story which ended with a hug I would be happy, right?

Well, not totally – I was somewhat happy for the most part but I did have one somewhat big issue with what happened.

“'Cause You're Everywhere To Me”

Tonight's “Spanks For The Memories” could be the most unpredictable episode ever. At least until “Wine Weekend” airs in two weeks.

Between 1) only two stories being known about tonight, and neither one involving the Dunphys (let alone Alex), 2) this episode was supposed to air last week, but was reversed at almost the last minute with “Written In The Stars”, and we don't know why that happened, and were they supposed to air this way or are they out of intended order, 3) whether or not there will (ever) be a follow-up to Alex's story from last week, and 4) I haven't seen a promo or preview for tonight, so it could still be Alex-less, there are so many wild cards out there that a straight flush might not win.

"Put The Bottle Down" (First Impressions - "Wine Weekend" - Season 9 - Episode 16)

I feel like whomever has the job of writing the press releases with the synopses for future episodes was in a hurry and/or wanted to go home early when they wrote this one for the next new episode. It's probably the vaguest one I've seen since I started doing this blog.

“Every Time I Get My Hopes Up, They Always Seem To Fall” (“Written In The Stars” Recap)

There's a rational part of me that wants to think that maybe what happened to Alex tonight was for the best: Professor Fennerman is much older than her (even more so than Ben1, and a lot of people felt Ben was too old for Alex) – he's probably too old even for Haley. Plus would we really want a romantic interest for Alex to hold her academic fate in his hands?

But that rational part of me is losing big time to the irrational part right now. And here's that recap.

"If We Share This Nightmare Then We Can Dream"

I did say I'd update if I found out anything that rendered moot any of my pre-show thoughts.

Too bad this tweet from the actor playing the professor (from late last night) rendered my one hope moot:

I can't say I'm shocked, but so much for Alex being a big part of that story.

“I'm Not Gonna Write You A Love Song”

So after an almost summer-like1 six weeks of reruns and preemptions , we finally have a new episode of Modern Family on tap tonight, “Written In The Stars”. But is there much reason to cheer this, given that we don't know what role, if any, Alex has in it?
