Through the fourth season, there is a whole host of exciting and powerful events that look quite different from the past. The season begins with Max, who heads for Chapter 4 - but his girlfriend Rose also works. DJ tries to make up for CJ, and Steph chooses a fight with Clown. On the other hand, the first secondary concert in Jackson and Ramona has serious consequences.
The whole series has been all about family, but the first few episodes of Season 4 do a great job of making family bonds a very cohesive thread. It's like the Fullers, Tanners, and Gibblers are finally coming together as one big unit.
