A year has passed since the event of the Season 4 finale and it seems that the Walkers have been mostly avoiding each other as Kitty grieves for Robert and deals with a new career. Also, what on Earth is up with Sarah's hair? The fringe might take some getting used to.Synopsis for opening episode, The Homecoming ....
It's been a year since the Walker family was torn apart by a tragic car accident, and in a very un-Walker like fashion, everyone has been avoiding everyone else. Truths and reality only start to set in when the family is forced to come together for Justin's homecoming party: Nora tries to prepare for the party, but is not acting like the mother she used to be; Sarah is consumed with the Narrow Lake deal; Kevin has a new career as public defense attorney; Saul and Scotty are running their restaurant; and Kitty's life has become a taboo subject for everyone. Time has changed the Walkers, on the fifth-season premiere of Brothers & Sisters.
Overall, it's an intriguing sounding opener and I like that Kevin has gotten back into law but with the spate of departures (Tommy, Rebecca, Robert, even Ryan) and the reduction in episodes, I can't help but wonder whether or not this will be the series final year. If it is, it better go out with a bang of Six Feet Under style proportions.
The series returns on ABC from September 26th at 10pm. More4 will air the new season in 2011.
