You have to give credit to Max and Caroline: they certainly know how to stay busy.
Between working for the diner in the evening, having their cupcake window after that and going to pastry school during the day, I’m surprised either of them finds time to brush their hair, much less sleep.
Then again, if 2 Broke Girls Season 3 Episode 13 showed us nothing else, it’s that you always have time for affairs of the heart. Even if you have to pull the fire alarm like Deke to get some alone time with Max.
It’s great to see Eric Andre (Deke) on a steady show again. He was one of the highlights on the failed ABC show “Don’t Trust The B in Apartment 23," playing coffee barista Mark. This week’s snow swim out of the cupcake sales window was especially acrobatic of him, you have to admit.
I don’t know where Caroline and Chef Nicolas are going. While Caroline apparently needs to keep a tight grip on her girl-parts around him to keep them from running off, I lost count of how many time she mentioned he was married in this episode alone.
I realize we are coming off a holiday break and they want to make sure we remember where we left off... but I’m pretty sure we all got it the second, third or even the eighth time she said it. Date him, don’t date him, I don’t care but for the love of sprinkles, please stop whining about it!
I hope that Max has better luck with Deke than she did with Johnny on 2 Broke Girls Season 1. Given that she came clean with him about her attraction and Deke didn’t sleep with “Judy with the booty,” I’d like to think they are on the right track.
In conclusion, I’m giving the first offering of 2014 four alarms out of five for reminding us that no matter how cold it gets outside, Max and Caroline will warm things up for us inside.
Which couple has a better chance of making it?
