It's been a tough year for The Braverman family; Kristina and Adam grappled with a life-altering cancer diagnosis and Sarah's engagement ended in a spectacular display of self-destruction. But things haven't been much better for The Graham branch of Zeke's family tree with Julia and Joel still struggling to make their new addition feel like one of the family.
And in Tuesday's all-new episode, Julia, who was finally making some progress with Victor, finds their relationship taking two steps back after her adopted son makes a heart-crushing request.
But the tables will soon turn when Julia is forced to give Victor some very disappointing news in Keep on Rowing.
