Claudia Joy and Michael: Claudia Joy has started her insulin/blood sugar checking/glucose level thing. Michael tries to be a part of it, but is rebuffed. Emmalin attempts to clear the kitchen of all sugary and processed foods and gets snapped on by Claudia Joy. Claudia Joy feels it is a private matter, she'll do things her own way, deal with her own kitchen, and tell who she wants to tell when she wants to tell them.

Diabetes is nothing to hide and be ashamed of; it's not like Claudia Joy found out that she'll turn into a werewolf at the next full moon.

While at Roxy's house, Claudia ...

Trevor is now in Recruiter Training. Finn started his new school. TJ is being a poop towards his brother. He feels no one cares about him as Finn rattles on and on about what he did in his gifted classes. Trevor notices this and takes TJ on a special father-son fishing expedition. Nice bonding.

Pamela

Nothing new here. She was not a factor in this episode. She said she misses Chase.

Claudia Joy and Michael

This episode of Army Wives came with a disclaimer. If you were watching Lifetime right before the show came on, it said that the last five minutes would change the course of all of their lives-forever.

Roxy, Trevor and the gang

Trevor is now Sergeant LeBlanc.

The Hump Bar is humpin'! Music is blaring (Country Star Jack Ingram was fantastic!), people are drinking and getting drunk, loose women are coming onto the soldiers. One comes tries to hit on Trevor. Roxy quickly squashed that. PFC Day then hits on the woman, who shoots him down. Some Navy guys start ribbing him, and this ril...

Claudia Joy, Emmalin, Michael

Haneen is scheduled to go back to Iraq. Emmalin reads on the Internet that translator families are in grave danger. Emmalin says Haneen can't go because she'll be killed. Michael calls in a favor, and Haneen and her family will go to Turkey. Claudia Joy will accompany Haneen via military transport.

That Haneen is soooo polite. Is she like that in Iraq?

Emmalin wants to go, but her father nixes that, saying that she has to take her SAT test. That goes over big.

Emmalin decided to do a little cooking for the pa...

What a week for our friends this has been on Army Wives! This was a great episode, power-packed and suspenseful, and rich in triumph!

Denise and Frank

They are continuing to date. Denise wants to take things to the next level-she wants to be back under the same roof. Frank says he wants things to be right this time. Denise is probably just sick of motel accommodations.

Roland, in one of their heart-to-heart discussions, gives Denise the male point-of-view. He says Frank probably can't get the image of Denise with another man out of his head. Image is everything.
