As Eddie is enjoying his cultural exchange program; it was cut short when he crashed the bus into a drive-thru Wendy's. As Jessica and Louis watched the news coverage; Eddie was brought back and was banned from the program that also includes both Emery and Evan.

After hearing Eddie's side of the story, Jessica takes his side and ungrounds him. Louis thinks that they should apologize; but Jessica doesn't think so but instead makes a deal with the program to take in a child, a little girl. Even though it seemed all fun and all, it turns into a nightmare for the family when the kid uses Louis' hairdryer and takes Eddie's room while Eddie stays with Even and Emery. 

Evan gets to babysit Marie but when Honey and Marvin caught him make threats to the baby to reason with her. But he tries to apologize to Marie in the way that he forgives her.  

Soon, Jessica and Louis see that the girl is on Taiwan news station; talking how bad it is living with the cheeseburger boy's family. That makes Jessia and Louis speak to the program and Eddie makes his apology, but the program wanted Jessica and Louis to do the same too. Louis, instead of his usual excuse, doesn't and threatens. The girl is sent back, and everything seems to be back to normal. 

As the family drives home, Jessica tells Eddie that she's undoing her ungrounding on him. Than Louis puts on some tunes and the family starts singing to Sugar Ray, while Eddie puts on his music and watches as he enjoys his music the family is enjoying theirs. 

"No Apology Necessary" was a lovely ending to the season and a fitting ending. If the network had placed the previous episode and this episode as a one-hour episode; it would be a real fitting series finale because it felt like one. The episode played out so well; even though I had high hopes for Eddie to be responsible this season, the screw up was a hilarious twist. 

Not to mention the Louis and Jessica scenes about apologizing I couldn't get enough. There were moments in the episode that takes a direct montage to the pilot like the family driving listening to music. While there was some strong character development, the cast puts on an excellent performance.

If ABC announces that the show has been canceled today, tomorrow or around the May upfronts; as much as I would be sad for the show to end, I feel satisfied for the ending of the episode as it felt like a series finale. Overall, I give this episode a 9.5/10.
