Meanwhile, Daphne and Chris skip school to attend a Sara Bareilles video shoot; JJ’s tasks for the academic-decathlon team make him suspicious of Mr. Litchfield; and Katie learns shocking news about Joshua.” No Ordinary Family is about “a family that develops superpowers after a plane crash in the Amazon. The patriarch, Jim, discovers he has immense strength, and his wife, Stephanie, is blessed with amazing speed, while their 16-year-old daughter, Daphne, turns telepathic, and their learning-disabled 14-year-old son, JJ, becomes a genius.”
