'Cougar Town': Simon Says

Posted on

Cougar Town
Michael Ansell/ABC

Oh, ABC. You’re such a tease! You finally brought back Cougar Town only to shelve it again for Dancing With the Stars. One of the show’s creators, Kevin Biegel, joked today on Twitter that at this rate season 3 would last until Christmas. “Christmas 2015.” If Cougar Town can manage to survive that long, I’ll gladly pound some grape. But otherwise, let’s try to keep to a regular schedule, ABC.

But enough of that. In last night’s “You Can Still Change Your Mind,” Grayson began his adventures in parenthood by babyproofing the house for Jill Tampa. The babyproofing provided a safe environment for Jill Tampa, but Jules couldn’t seem to outsmart the cabinetry. And thus, the trash sink was born.

Meanwhile, Travis offered up his photography services for Jules’ wedding. Unfortunately, he happens to be a pretty terrible photographer with an even worse philosophy: “The theme of my work is taking the beauty out of beauty.” So what? Travis takes pictures of severed toes. It wasn’t like he was requesting to play the bagpipes or anything. But Jules’ decided to support her son, and she hired him for the job. As it turned out, he wasn’t as bad as she originally thought. Problem solved.

But do you know whose relationship was problem free? Bobby and Angie’s. At least it was until Bobby caught her making out with another dude on the plaza. She said that she and Bobby never decided to be exclusive, and Bobby was able to get over that. But in the end, the two had to call it quits because Bobby was looking for a relationship that would turn into something real. Aww. I think Mr. Cobb is growing up!

The Throwaway Story Line of the Night Award (an award I made up two seconds ago) goes to Ellie and Laurie for their adventures with the Simon. It wasn’t much for plot development, but it had me dying with laughter. (But maybe that’s just because I also have a blind spot for those things.) All of Ellie’s mockery was worth it because the two ladies shared a nice bonding moment at the end.

NEXT: The night’s best moments and lines!
