Let’s talk about Sunday night’s TV!

THE EQUALIZER: Well, Mel and Delilah’s secret exploded super fast. I’m glad Vi pushed Delilah to tell Robyn the truth, but of course she didn’t even get the chance before she accidentally started a fight and Robyn figured it all out.

But, man, that Robyn and Mel fight was brutal. Both were right, to a degree, but it was hard to see them at such odds with each other. Ditto Vi and Robyn. It absolutely makes sense Robyn wants to protect D from this life, but it also makes sense Delilah feels absolutely helpless and wants to have an iota of agency. The real middle ground would be Robyn training her daughter, but Mel clearly will also do anything to protect D, too. Hopefully the tension doesn’t last too long.

(Uh, where is Mel’s brother? And how concerned should we be that she just went rogue?)

On a lighter note, Dante and Robyn are good at talking about others while also talking about their own slow-moving relationship. Yeah, Misty had her own will they/won’t they relationship. She does deserve happiness…so do the two of you! 

THE SIMPSONS: I love rom-coms, but, strangely enough, I’ve only seen WHEN HARRY MET SALLY once, so I’m sure there were homages I missed/would appreciate more if the film was fresh in my mind. 

Putting that aside for a moment, it was a fun way to look at the possible future and a nice change of pace to have it be a Nelson-Lisa-Hubert Wong triangle versus Nelson-Lisa-Milhouse. (Or Lisa-Milhouse-Person X.) And it did make me want to rewatch WHMS and then come back to rewatch this, too.

BOB’S BURGERS: This was an oddly sweet episode about a cemetery visit. Bob and the kids getting entirely lost in the cemetery and Linda being petrified but being the one to find Bob’s mom’s grave? Weirdly moving! (Sorry to Linda, whose absolute terror in the car made me laugh out loud. But she got a hero moment and saved the day, too.)

THE GREAT NORTH: I’m very sorry to the exchange student, all I could think was she would have so much to talk about with SUPERSTORE’s Jonah and his concern about the bee population…

I feel terrible for Ham that he killed the cactus, but it was very sweet that he’s already worrying about what kind of dad he’ll be. We don’t get to see that as frequently with young men on TV, but Beef handled the conversation beautifully.
