'Almost Family' Season 1 Episode 5 'Risky AF': Roxy is confronted with her past at her old gym

Spoilers ahead for Season 1 Episode 5 of 'Almost Family' titled 'Risky AF' 

In last week's episode titled 'Fake AF', the three sisters had a particularly strenuous time. Julia (Brittany Snow) finds herself entangled in many of her lies, while Edie (Megalyn Echikunwoke) continues to struggle with the truth about herself, in turn putting at risk the emotions of two people close to her. Last week, her husband Tim (Mo McRae) expresses his desire to have children with Edie, which she agrees to. At the same time, ex-athlete Roxy (Emily Osment) is on a quest to coach a young girl with the tricks of the trade. Having struggled all these years since she was out of a project, Roxy wishes to do this right because she sees talent in Izzy (Bryce Lorenzo).

In a promo released for the upcoming episode of 'Almost Family' titled 'Risky AF', Julia and Edie are seen giving Roxy what looks like a pep talk. 

"I could really use your help finding a new job," Roxy is seen telling her sisters. While Roxy is still working at her old gym, she now finds her face to face with her past: "I have my past thrown in my face". 

According to the official synopsis of the episode, "Roxy takes her new protégé back to her old gym, where she runs into old enemies from her gymnastics days". Apparently, Michael Stahl-David ('The Deuce') is set to do a guest appearance on the episode. Could he be Roxy's past - perhaps an old coach?  

At the same time, Julia will be confronted with something professional yet personal. Upon discovering that Isaac (Mustafa Elzein) has been secretly working with Leon (Timothy Hutton) for advice on his current patients, Julia must make a drastic decision.

Elsewhere, Tim (Mo McRae) is "on high alert when Edie misses a family event to “work” all weekend". This is probably an excuse as Edie might be hanging out with Amanda (Victoria Cartagena) while lying to Tim. 



'Almost Family' airs on Wednesdays at 9 pm ET/PT on Fox.
