51The Brothers » Takes place shortly after Trey is released from prison (The Brothers Grimm (2x17)). A completely different Trey then what we saw; one that would have been better for Ryan. It also shows Sandy and Kirsten as united couple/parents, and not how divided they seemed to be in the latter half of the second season. I've decided to continue this series.

14The Fights Sandy and Kirsten must deal with Seth and Ryan when they get into a fight at school. As a result, they also end up dealing with some of Ryan's issues. Changed the name because, frankly, it sucked; not that this one is much better.
