Can you imagine a world where Venice, Calif., miscreant Hank Moody (David Duchovny) morphs into a upstanding, well-behaved pillar of the upper middle class, à la Mad Men's iconic Don Draper? Well, if you can't bring yourself to believe such a thing could be real, feast your eyes on the above sneak peek from Sunday's all-new episode of Californication. Hank, Karen (Natascha McElhone) and Becca (Madeline Martin) take a moment out of their busy schedules to slip into a Donna Reed-style dream sequence where everything is just so, i.e. totally unlike their real lives.
Tell us, Californication fans: What's the most deranged part of this dream sequence? Is it when Stepford Hank creepily requests "kisses!" or enjoys a little cherry pie double entendre with Stepford Karen? Or maybe it's the on-the-nose moral of the children's story that Stepford Hank reads to Stepford Becca?
Actually, if we had to choose, we'd say the weirdest moment of all is when Stepford Hank curls up in Stepford Karen's lap. (What. The. Hell.)
Californication airs Sunday at 9 p.m. on Showtime!
