Friday Night Lights: Last Days of Summer

As summer nears its end, the defending state champion Panther team looks forward to their upcoming season despite the changes that took place since last season. Eric Taylor starts his coaching job at TMU and discovers how hard it is being apart from his wife as she goes into labor. Meanwhile, Tyra runs into someone from her past that will change her life forever; and Matt and Landry both deal with their new lifestyles, but neither are comfortable with the changes.

Episode Quotes
(Lyla at dinner with her mom and her new boyfriend saying grace)
Lyla: Thank you Lord for this food that we are about to receive and for your wisdom Lord. I pray that you will guide me and everyone at this table to help respect You and make good choices ... for example to not take advantage of the vulnerability of a recently seperated but not yet divorced woman ... and in turn to give others at the table the strength to remember that a mother of three should not be wearing skinny jeans. Amen.
Lyla: Bon appetit!
