For Kate, the feeling of abandonment is only exacerbated by Kevin's decision to follow Sophie to New York following graduation in pursuit of becoming an actor. In present day, Kate has finished the 8 credits required to become a college graduate, her degree from Encino Community College.

Awesome episode

The most effective method of this episode was bringing back some of the old ways of this show. By saying this, I mean the past story-line wasn't just stuck in for the hell of it. I feel like this show has been more about the present story-line recently, with flashbacks being thrown in here and there. This has made those flashbacks feel a bit forced to me. But this episode got back to the core of this show and what made it great to begin with, which is being able to perfectly balance what is going on in the past with the present. The acting was top-notch from everyone, but Mandy Moore really knocked it out of the park yet again. It'll be a shame if she doesn't eventually get an Emmy for this show. The acting from the teenage Big 3 was at its best too. Great episode and maybe the best of this season so far.
