After the baby drama of last week, I’m almost scared to see what will happen in this episode, but the cliché of the week is “do the things that scare you most”, so let’s put our fear aside and dive right in!
We kick things off with a game night at Rome and Regina’s place. Rome’s having difficulty getting his head around the fact that Delilah is pregnant. Here’s the intriguing part, Gina didn’t ask D who the father is so now the suspense is driving them (well mostly Rome) crazy. The gang shows up and there’s a lot of confusion over who can drink wine since the other guys think it’s Gina who’s pregnant and Delilah is pretending not to be. Plus, Rome can’t drink because of his anti-depressants, but Gina doesn’t know that either. Phew. So many lies, so little time. Anyway, Eddie’s all excited because he’s landed himself a gig. That’s really all I have to say on that matter. The guys are still pumped about Rome becoming a dad and start teasing him about baby names, and Rome — despite being able to keep many, huge secrets from his wife — can’t take it and blurts out that it’s not Gina who’s pregnant. Delilah grabs Eddie to talk to him and Gina grabs the bottle of wine. Get it, girl.
Start your cliché counter because here we go! Eddie thinks that this pregnancy happened for a reason (one), they love each other blablabla. LOL to him trying to make things work with Katherine last week. Eddie’s very excited about their baby, so of course Delilah promptly tells him it’s Jon’s. Eddie’s devastated because he thought she and Jon weren’t sleeping together anymore. She just responds, “He was my husband.” Ouch. Eddie walks away and D grabs her coat to leave. I feel like honestly this is a good outcome. Jon lives on. Sophie and that other kid get a little sibling and don’t have to know their mom was having an affair, at least for now — so, yeah, she probably just told Eddie a lie. I’m starting a petition to change the name of this show to A Million Little Lies.
The next day, Eddie’s getting his setlist together for his show that night, when Katherine calls to say she has a last-minute business trip so he needs to look after Theo that night. Eddie starts to use that as an excuse to get out of the show but Maggie offers to babysit, which she then promptly regrets when Eddie lists all Theo’s dietary restrictions and mentions that he gets night terrors. Gary plays the “Here you go, enjoy every moment of life” card to Maggie and pretty much bows out of any of the responsibilities. (Recap continues on page 2.)
