Last week, the ghost of Charlie Harper came back to haunt Alan. This week, it was Zoey who caused the guy problems, as she decided to launch her own attack against Alan, making me totally agree with him: she has to go.
"The Straw In My Donut Hole" dealt with the recuperating period after Alan’s faux heart attack. He was showered with love and gifts, which - as avid fans know so well - isn't exactly the norm for this character. As Berta said, with the quote of the night:
I try not to insult people who can come back and haunt me. | permalink
Everyone felt guilty about the way they had behaved toward Alan, so he decided to right those numerous wrongs.
Evelyn fulfilled his lifelong dream of being a cowboy, Judith relaxed on the child support, Lyndsey even "helped" him while he sat back and ate peach cobbler and Walden practically babysat his pal. But Zoey? She didn't believe Alan. I don’t see her sticking around for much longer, do you?
How odd is it that Judith and Herb have totally given up on Jake attending college? Is that kind of a spoiler for the finale, regarding Jake’s decision after completing high school? Who knows. But that will be an interesting decision come the last episode.
And we had a guest tonight, a Seinfeld Alum, Jason Alexander, who also delivered some great Two and a Half Men lines.
To end the half hour in typical Men fashion, Alan was caught in his lie and subsequently shamed, returning him back to his - dare I say - “Loser Status."
So, what do you think about Zoey? Should she go? Should she stay? Sound off in the comments below.
