IS IT WEIRD YOUR DAD HAS NO ADULT FRIENDS? Carrie (AnnaSophia Robb) sits at the head of the Thanksgiving table.
Meanwhile, Maggie goes over to Walt’s snooty family’s home and has a real awkward dinner. Not helping the awkwardness is Walt’s father basically encouraging his son to join a frat at college and have homoerotic experiences. Oh don’t worry, pops -- that’s pretty much a done deal. Maggie realizes though that she doesn’t really have a plan for the future and she can’t really just follow Walt around wherever he goes.
Back at Bradshaw home base, Carrie and Mouse are struggling with the bird. We got a real graphic view of them removing the giblets from the turkey’s butt, which may have been the most disturbing thing I’ve seen this week since Vin Diesel’s YouTube cover of Rihanna’s “Stay.” Throughout all this, Dorrit was oddly bonding with George, which was a twist straight out of an M. Night Shyamalan movie. Eventually, though, Dorrit broke down and ran outside to smoke some weed. Carrie followed and the pair got in a fight and argued about their mom.
Eventually, they ended up back inside and that’s when things exploded…literally. The turkey exploded in the oven and knocked out all the power. But that gave everyone a chance to calm down and for the producers to showcase super cool '80s flashlights!! Dorrit basically admitted to Carrie that she just wanted to skip the holiday since their mom couldn’t be there and Carrie wanted to make it special for the very same reason. It was all actually very sweet. Carrie even referenced using her oven for storage, foreshadowing SATC!! And then Dorrit said she wanted to yank out the giblets next year and it got kinda creepy. POLTERGEIST AMBER TAMBLYN!
Back at her family’s house, Deputy Shmitty or whatever that cute guy’s name is hits on Maggie. She instead decided to have some self-worth and not just make a bad mistake without thinking about the future. Good call. But that guy is still pretty cute and I wouldn’t have been mad at her to just make out with him a hot minute.
So the big twist at the end was that Sebastian showed up on Carrie’s door late night and said he just felt like being with her. He’s totally a combo of Chord Overstreet and Liam Hemsworth. They had a nice little heart-to-heart on the front steps and she invited him in for some ambrosia salad, which is totally gross btw. Carrie’s dad even lets Sebastian come in for some gross salad. Progress!!
