Last week’s “Two and a Half Men” had Alan having somewhat of a nervous breakdown, he thought he was his dead brother Charlie as he has not really dealt with the death of his brother and Walden had him admitted into a mental facility. Did you see last week’s show? If not, you can read the review HERE.
In tonight’s episode, former “Celebrity Apprentice” star, Gary Busey, portrays Alan’s roommate at a mental institution where Walden checked him into following his breakdown.
Busey guest stars as himself and Alan is met with a slew of challenges that test his ability to cope just when he is about to be released from the hospital. Here’s the promo video, just a little sneak peek before our recap:
Will Alan recover and stop believing that he is Charlie Harper? Why is it called “Frodo’s Headshots”? Do they mean Frodo…from “Lord of the Rings”?
Here’s tonight’s exciting recap: 28 days later, Alan is leaving the mental facility, he thinks he is ready to go back out in the world. Alan’s room mate is Gary Busey and he grabs him for a big hug before he leaves.
Jake picks Alan up and asks him if he is still crazy, Alan is convinced he is over it. Jake reveals to Alan that Megan is pregnant, she is in her first trimester. Alan freaks out, asks what about protection and Jake says he was drunk. Jake and Megan are going to get jobs and take care of the baby themselves. Alan wants to know what Jake’s mother thinks about and he tells her that she doesn’t know.
Walden greets Alan at the door, whispering, like he is an idiot then Jake breaks the news to Walden that he is going to be a dad and if it is a boy, they are going to call him Frodo. Berta walks in and says “look who just walked in from the loony bin”. Jake tells Berta about him becoming a daddy and she laughs out loud. Jake receives his refund, or so he thought, he is being audited and Berta lets out another big laugh.
Alan invites Jake’s mother and step dad over for a family meeting because Jake and Megan have news, she is pregnant. Alan wants everyone to come together as a family.
Alan finds out that he owes $80,000.00 to the government, meanwhile Walden is up at the bedroom door with Lindsay – it appears they hooked up and Berta lets out another big laugh (she doesn’t contribute much else this season).
Alan freaks out again, the thought of Lindsay and Walden together; the two go on and on in front of Alan on how each other are the best they ever head. Alan asks how can they possibly have an affair when he is locked up but is happy “he has the tools to deal with whatever life throws at him”. Walden tells Alan that they packed his things and paid his fist months rent at the storage locker, he leaves – but to the garage to attempt suicide. He blocks all the doors, turns on the car, “God check please”, but the car dies and he is still alive.
Alan heads to his mom’s house and tells her that Walden threw him out, she fakes an Asian accent and tells him he is at the wrong house to go away. Alan is upset, blind sided by his son, betrayed by his friend, ignored by his mother. He heads to the locker where his stuff is at and finds a huge “welcome home” sign. He sits on a lawn chair, that breaks when a gorgeous blond shows up and asks him if he has a flash light, she invites Alan to join her for some wine that she has in his storage locker.
Merve shows up to see Alan, he has some news for him. He had a DNA test done on his daughter Milly, Alan is the father – he shoots him while Alan screams “please god no, I’m about to get laid by Jessica Rabbit”. All of a sudden, Alan wakes up and he is still in the loony bin.
Jake pics of Alan again and is surprised that Walden let him borough his car. Jake asks if it is too soon to talk to him about something, Megan wants to see other people and wants advice from Alan about keeping a woman.
Before Alan goes in the door, Jake advises him that things are not like they used to be. Alan walks in and Walden still has that same tone in his voice like Alan is a crazy person. Walden finished redecorating, he wired the house to turn electronics on and off by his voice only. Walden had a lot of time to think while he was away and tells Walden that it was one thing to live with his brother, but now that he is gone, he doesn’t fit in the apartment any more. Walden asks if he is leaving and Alan says “God no”, the two share an endearing hug to Whitney Houston’s “I will always love you”.
