As promised, here’s some pictures from Tuesday night’s event at Walter Reed in Washington, D.C. where military solders at the hospital and their friends and family were treated to an advanced screening of episode five of "Army Wives" as well as a chance to meet some of the cast:

And here's some moments you won’t read about anywhere else:

1. Brigid and Sally’s fierce stilettos that they wore all night long...without complaining!

2. Sally sitting on Brigid’s lap to purposely "blooper" her interview. During the interview Brigid was talking about how her character was going to have a “sassy” storyline coming up real soon!

3. A man whose chair broke at an awkward moment during a hilarious sexy scene of Episode 5.

4. How I found Brigid’s missing sweater underneath a pile of stuff and was this close to offering it up for grabs on the blog. (Sorry, guys. I tried!)

FYI: Brigid later fessed up to leaving little black sweaters everywhere she goes.

I had an advanced preview of this Sunday’s all new episode of “Army Wives” at the event, and I must tell you, this was my favorite episode yet. Dare I say it, the best episode of the show to date!

It made me laugh, it made me think, it made me cry. And, I learned from Sally Pressman that it was directed by Joanna Kerns, of “Growing Pains” fame. (She also directed the episode "Dirty Laundry" in Season 1.)

I can’t give too much away without ruining some great moments, but here’s a sneak peek:


 

Tune in Sunday at 10 pm et/pt to watch the entire brand new episode! Come back to the blog after the show for my weekly recap! (And soon I’ll have video from this event too.)
