Greetings TV viewers! After watching Showtime’s SMILF season 2 episode 2 last night, I was reminded that Third Eye Blind’s song, “How’s It Going to Be,” can really get you through a lot. It may not solve your issues overnight, but I have to agree with Tutu’s choice of soundtrack here. Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. In last night’s episode, “Sorry Mary, I’m Losing Faith,” Bridgette gets asked out on a date, but realizes that she may not be ready for such a big step. Meanwhile, Tutu tries to deal with her own grief, and Ally tries to pick up the pieces of her marriage. My top 5 moments from the SMILF season 2 episode 2 are:
“Well change hurts.”
In the beginning of the episode, Bridgette decides to get her basketball tattoo covered up because it reminds her of her father. The tattoo artist reminds her that “change hurts,” but sometimes change can be just what we need, as he spontaneously asks Bridgette out on a date. Bridgette says yes and seems genuinely excited about it, but now she needs to find someone to watch Larry.
“You planned a scavenger hunt?”
When Bridgette drops off Larry to Rafi, he explains that he cannot watch him during her date because he has his own romantic evening planned for his girlfriend, which involves a scavenger hunt around the city leading to a nice dinner. The idea is actually pretty clever, but Bridgette is not amused, as she starts to realize that her own potential romantic evening may now be put on hold.
After finding a sitter for Larry, thanks to Ally, Bridgette agrees to go out with Ally before her date, but Ally is an emotional mess right now after finding out that her husband has a mistress. Ally surprisingly fires Bridgette because she can’t have another woman around the house anymore, but still wants to be friends. Bridgette seems open to the idea, but will Ally have a change of heart? After all, it seems like Bridgette does make a difference with her kids.
“I’m Team Ally.”
Well sure, Bridgette, maybe you are Team Ally, but I’m not sure that following her advice about taking a Xanax is necessarily the best idea before your big date. Bridgette is definitely more relaxed now, but ends up bailing on her date, realizing that she is not ready for this big step in her life just yet.
“I’m really worried about the future for my kid and my future too I guess.”
At the end of the episode, Bridgette ends up walking into a church and helping herself to some church wine, as she has a heart-to-heart talk with the statue of Mary. Bridgette opens up about some of her fears and doubts, but ends up stealing the statue to set her free. While I’m not sure this is the wisest decision, luckily Rafi ends up picking Bridgette up and helping her. I don’t know if these two are meant to end up together or not, but it’s nice to see that Rafi is trying to be there for Bridgette and Larry. Although I’m not really sure what Bridgette is going to do with the statue of Mary now? Stay tuned for more SMILF fun!

When Kallie Bennett, a jaded teenage girl plagued by her alcoholic mother and her peers molded out of sheer bubble gum perfection, chases after Alice in Wonderland herself, she ends up lost in her own version of Wonderland, which forces her to face her utmost fears and introduces her to familiar characters with a dark twist. Among these characters is Ches, a gorgeous vampire with a conflicted conscience, who becomes Kallie’s guide and blossoming love interest. She also crosses paths with Queen Hartley, a manipulative witch who has the power to strip away one’s memories and imagination, which brings a bone chilling new meaning to “off with their heads.” In The Search for Alice, Kallie starts to realize that her Wonderland is just as frightening as her own reality and that she cannot always run away from her problems. She must figure out a way to defeat Queen Hartley and return home before it is too late, but she soon learns that escaping Wonderland means leaving Ches behind forever.
