Two and A Half Men returned this week, with a bang, as Jake brought both trouble and a great many laughs home with him.
The head chef came back after a split with Tammy. First off, how awesome is it that Jake is in charge of actual human beings?!? That is a huge step, although he is not handling the job well, instructing his subordinates to do nasty things with food. Typical Jake, of course. He even gave a shout out to the The Big Bang Theory by dropping a "rad" on "Bazinga! That's From a TV Show."
That aside, let us get to the main event: Jake cheated on Tammy with her daughter, Ashley. Yes, you read that right.
Jake got that "elusive mother-daughter combo," as Walden eloquently put it in the way only he can.â€¨
However, that was not even the most screwed up part of the evening. Ashley’s older, creepy car salesman boyfriend (Scott Bakula) proposed to her and even added a new Mercedes to boot. Oh, and Walden hooked up with Tammy. All this seems like it took place on an episode of Jerry Springer, but I like said before, it provided a lot of laughs. Isn't that all that matters?
It is no coincidence that the best episodes this season are those that have featured a Jake-centric storyline. Let's just hope that he sticks around for a long time and let's hope the gang from Malibu sticks around as well.
