I mean, we have to start with Rachel Dratch, right? the saturday night live vet makes an all too brief cameo in Kevin can fuck himself‘s latest episode, and it’s a delight. Dratch has a smorgasbord of TV sitcoms under its belt, including Kevin James episodes. the king of queens, 30 rockY Half. So it was nice to see her interact with Allison and Patty, two women who are trying to do away with sitcom tropes. She got her bit part as a disgruntled former city council employee turned rebel (35 years of civic duty, and fired her by email. Are there any jobs where bosses take their employees seriously?). Her help is essential because she takes Allison
stealing noting Gertrude Fronch’s death certificate. Here’s hoping Dratch’s Beatrice Morton returns to help againbut if not, we will always have a cameo.
Back to Allison’s accomplishment: She is now one step closer to changing her identity and moving to Connecticut. As Patty realizes the harsh reality of her, she decides to live with Tammy. If Allison is moving on with her life, so should she, is what I guess Patty thinks on her way home from City Hall. Now, whether she really wants to cohabit with her girlfriend is another matter. She’s acting more out of self-preservation than true feelings, and it’s hard to blame her for that, who among us hasn’t? Of course, Patty doesn’t know that Tammy only asked her to move so she could keep a close eye on her. At least that’s my guess because after seeing the footage from Vermont, Tammy has apparently avoided her for days. Her sudden decision to ask him to move out seems more like a calculated ploy, though her plea sounds sincere.
the meat of Kevin can fuck himselfThe fifth episode of actually stems from the plot of the sitcom. I know, color me surprised too. It’s kind of exciting to see everyone who’s close to Kevin start to turn on him, or at least call out his scheming ways. He spends most of “The Unreliable Narrator” interrogating people at Bev’s Diner. Everyone except Allison and Patty take shelter there during a power outage caused by his stupidity. Nobody really stole the generator from him like he thinks, but he takes the opportunity to question, criticize, and make fun of Neil, Diane, Sam, Pete, and Pete’s girlfriend Doris anyway.
Kevin’s interactions with Sam are insightful due to the terrible marriage advice he gives, not knowing that it is the same place where Sam and Allison had their affair in the first season. His advice is to essentially use whatever strength he has (Kevin supposedly possesses good looks and humor) to get his way. He smells of manipulation, honey. No wonder he thinks he’s accountable to no one. Except that is going to change very soon. Sam finally sees that Kevin is not a harmless clown, but an infuriating bastard ruining Allison’s life, so he decides to help her escape from her however he can. He cue a quick kiss which turns into a grateful Allison breaking into her arms.
Neil’s descent has gradually built up. Diane’s support causes her to stand up for herself and not go on Kevin’s blind side when he is accused of stealing the damn generator. Neil and Diane kiss too! (This pairing was hinted at in last week’s outing, but it’s kind of gross, or we get why they’re attracted to each other after all they’ve been through.) They also proceed to a Dunkin’ Donuts instead of joining. Kevin at the bar to devour beers. He is a huge massachusetts representation, to be sure, but it’s noteworthy because they both choose not to drink their sorrows, as they usually do, at some point, KCFH It’s going to address Kevin’s, Neil’s and even Diane’s addiction to alcohol, right?
Admittedly, it was jarring that his father, who is always supportive, ended the episode by berating his son. He’s been a long time coming, no doubt, but he still felt a bit random. He just goes to show that with decent human beings around, even Neil and Pete can discover a moral compass. Pete is especially disturbed to learn that Kevin stole Doris’s hearing aids, a truly despicable act that he tried to pass off. like a laughable joke. This is exactly the type of joke that we have seen in many sitcoms, but the laugh track trains us to think it’s funny, so the arc closes perfectly in 20 minutes. not so much in KCFH. In fact, it seems to me that not just Sam, but everyone could wake up and band together to help Allison make Kevin pay for his actions for the remaining three episodes of season two.
- In case you’re wondering how the Dratch cameo came about, decider reports that KCFH director Anna Dokoza also directed 2021 A Clüsterfünke Christmas, starring Dratch and Ana Gasteyer. So they were able to easily arrange an appearance.
- the article of KCFH episode two is finally out, and Allison’s former classmate-turned-journalist devotes an entire paragraph to her high school swimming career and a photo. Kevin is angry that the space could have been used for more of his pranks.
- Apparently, Diane and Chuck have reconciled. if you’re tracking. She’s obviously not happy about it, so she might encourage her to at least try to help Allison escape from her, though, in the past, she has told him to stay put.
- Kevin knew to seek refuge in Bev’s Diner because he discovered that Allison was there. How did he discover this? Tracking his phone, of course. KCFH he loves to subtly point out that he’s less of a fool, and more calculating.
- Why would Allison and Patty go to Beatrice’s correct address in the police car? Couldn’t they have gotten off at Bev’s or something and then walked to City Hall? It would slow them down, but now they have left such an official trail of their misdeeds.
- Beatrice’s pet nicknames for Allison and Patty, respectively, are mousy delinquent and her goth friend.
- Patty’s new haircut is so cute. Who did it for her? We have never seen a single person work in her salon.
- Who else noticed that Kevin realized everyone was laughing at Allison’s joke about him being a mistake, and so he urged her to go “get fuel for his generator”?
- Kevin’s response to everyone who asks him to apologize: “Apologies are like tears, everyone has to let them out unless they’re real men.” The it is worst.
