Im Shocked
15 November 2017 | by freebpandstuffSee all my reviews

Another amazing episode, pregnancies proposals and soulmates what else could you ask for in a fox drama. My favorite part was probably the che in Seth soulmate storyline I probably liked it more than anyone else possibly could. Some say "I must say I was really laughing out loud with tears in my eyes through the whole Che soul mate thing. I will really miss the character he is hilarious." Tears in there eyes, sounds like an over sell to me but all in all I give it all 11 out of 10.
