After last week’s abysmal episode, Two and a Half Men returned to winning ways this week. We are now dealing with the aftermath of Walden’s decision to invite Zoey and Ava to stay with him, while kicking Alan out.
Let’s get down to business, shall we?
On "Mr. Hose Says Yes," Walden learned how stressful raising a child can be. Sure, he had some fun, but for most of the half hour, Ava pestered him. From monster-checking the closet and below the bed to preparing Eggs Benedict while Zoey sat on the sidelines... it's not so easy, is it?
Alan's fate was by no way better, of course, as he was electrocuted, broke his nose, numbed his hand, jarred his forehead and destroyed "Mr. Hose." He tried to be the man of the house, and he suffered inconsiderable pain as a result.
Finally, we were treated to a lot more screen time for Berta, and boy was that long overdue. She had the funniest Two and a Half Men quotes of the night.
Moreover - hooray! - Evelyn and her “buddy” were not present tonight. It really was a good episode all around.
“Mr. Hose Says Yes” showed us that Alan and Walden are just man-babies. No matter how much responsibility they try to take on, things just get worse. They might get an A for effort, but they deserve an E for execution.
At the end, they realized, they are likely suited for each other. Walden got rid of Zoey and Ava, and Alan returned. Thank goodness, right? Are you happy to see them back together?
