Greetings TV viewers! After watching Showtime’s SMILF season 2 episode 5, I realized that preparing for parenthood is never easy and things don’t always go according to plan. But it’s all worth it in the end. Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. In tonight’s episode, “Single Mom in Love Forever,” we travel back to 2014, as Bridgette and Rafi prepare for parenthood. Meanwhile, we finally understand where Tutu’s nickname comes from and also discover Bridgette’s inspiration for her son’s name. My top 5 moments from the SMILF season 2 episode 5 are:
“You cannot have a baby with that idiot.”
In the beginning of the episode, Tutu makes her feelings known right away, as she reacts to the news that Bridgette is pregnant. Even though Tutu is not Rafi’s biggest fan, she wants to support her daughter and do right by her. Rafi tries to bond with Tutu in several moments, but Tutu is still disappointed in some of her daughter’s decisions. That doesn’t mean that she will not be there for them, however.
“We’re not naming our kid after Hitler.”
One of the funniest moments of the episode is when Rafi suggests that they name their son, Adolfo. Bridgette explains that adding an “o” to a name doesn’t really help and uses the example, “Hitlero,” to further her argument. At this point, they haven’t decided on a name just yet, but Bridgette clearly wants it to mean something special.
“I know how much you love me.”
Rafi proposes to Bridgette when he finds out that she is pregnant and they have plans to get married. However, they are not without issues, as we learn that Rafi kisses someone else, which rubs Bridgette the wrong way. Bridgette knows how much Rafi loves her and Rafi is extremely excited to be a father, but she ends up telling him that she can’t marry him while in labor. However, I still see some sparks between these two in present day, so maybe they are finally ready to give it another try? We’ll have to wait and see.
“You’re in labor right here in a park.”
Bridgette has been preparing for a home birth, but Tutu reminds her that there are no life saving devices at home and tries to get her to go to the hospital. Bridgette is extremely determined to have a home birth, which is painful to watch. While I understand her wanting to follow through with her plan, I think that maybe it would have been a good idea to go to the hospital after all, but at least everything worked out in the end.
“See someone was giving away Larry Bird T-Shirts.”
After walking around while in labor, Bridgette comes across a Larry Bird T-Shirt. She initially tries to steal it, but the woman selling it ultimately tells her she can have it. This inspires Larry’s name, as she gives birth to her son in this very shirt. Bridgette, Rafi, and Tutu’s reaction to Larry’s arrival is sweet and heartwarming. Tutu requests to be called “Tutu” because it is Hawaiian for Grandma and she always thought of herself as Hawaiian. I guess that’s as good a reason as any. Either way, this episode gave us the chance to see Bridgette’s past, which was important and revealing. Stay tuned for more SMILF fun!
