Those Fancy Japanese Toilets
Original Air Date: Oct 31, 2011
FK – Sr. Editor
Ever wondered what Charlie Harper really thought? Yah, me neither. But tonight, thanks to a secret safe deposit box, we get to find out the inner thoughts of good ol’ Charlie.
We also get to see two more women become ridiculously infatuated with Walden (still don’t get it…), Jake makes an appearance and you may need some Bleach when it’s all over.
Interior Motive: Jake is a quick one, ain’t he? The girl he likes (his tutor) is not into him. But she sure is into Walden. Seriously?? COME ON! Anyhoo … after Walden woos her (gross!), she decides to hook up with Jake. While we only see them shake hands after it’s all over, let’s just assume he is going down the same road as his father, uncle and new upstairs neighbor.
Deep Thoughts by Charlie Harper: Charlie had a secret safe deposit box. Although he hoped it would have a secret stash of cash for him, Alan got a journal (while Evelyn got a fancy watch). Alan relives Charlie’s life through his brother’s eyes and discovers he actually was loved! Also in the journal, confessions of Charlie, who predicted his own death (although he said he’d get hit by a bus, not a train…) and admitted brief regret over briefly not remembering his woman-of-the-moment.
Double Nintendo: Walden getting women all hot isn’t new information. Evelyn being a cougar isn’t new information either. But when these two actually landed in bed, I wanted to throw up. I really don’t want to write any more about it. My eyes are burning.
I enjoyed seeing Jake again (he’s alive!) but the episode as a whole was horrible. Evelyn and Walden?? Although his look of terror was great and hopefully a turning point for him. I’d also wish the show would decide if they want to hold on to Charlie or let him go. I feel like we’re stuck in Charlie limbo. And it’s not fun. But that’s just my opinion. What are your thoughts? Leave your two cents below!
