Spoiler alert! We're about to dig into the biggest, most jaw-dropping moments from Thursday night's TV. If you haven't yet watched a particular show, and don't want to be spoiled, skip to the next!
Reunited and it feels so good: a tale of TV reporters and Thursday night TV. Oh, how we missed our favorite shows and the feelings they make us feel. (Hm...maybe we should talk to a therapist about often caring more about fictional characters' lives than our own?)
Tonight, Parks and Recreation returned and made our eyes rain, while Parenthood's surprise engagement made the rain shower continue. Plus, Two and a Half Men introduced Charlie's (Charlie Sheen) long-lost daughter...
Parks and Recreation: Congrats to Ron (Nick Offerman) and Diane (Lucy Lawless), who had the quickest engagement on record before tying the knot! After Diane told him she was pregnant, Ron proposed and three seconds later they decided to get married right then and there in city hall. By the time the opening credits rolled, Ron and Diane were husband and wife. We've never seen Ron smile so damn much, and it made our cold hearts warm all over. But they're not the only one with good news: Chris (Rob Lowe) and Ann (Rashida Jones) are pregnant! And back together, thus setting uptheir exit later on in the season. But we're not quite ready to talk about that quite yet.
While in London, Andy (Chris Pratt) got a job offer with Guardians of the Galaxy (you know what we mean), and April (Aubrey Plaza) pushes him to take it and insists they'll make itlong distance. Finally, Leslie (Amy Poehler) goes from hating Pawnee for trying to push her out of City Council to accepting the fact that hers is a thankless job most of the time. And she's OK with that.
Two and a Half Men "Charlie's back." Well, he might as well be as his long-lost daughter Jenny (Welcome back to TV, Amber Tamblyn) is definitely her father's daughter. In the CBS hit sitcom's season opener, we learn Jenny loves to drink and she loves the ladies. See, the apple doesn't fall far from the Harper tree at all! But did you like the energy Jenny brought to the house? Or are you still missing Charlie?
Parenthood Excuse us while we go out and buy another 50 box of tissues after that final scene, which featured Ryan (Matt Lauria) returning from duty and immediately getting down on one knee to propose to Amber (Mae Whitman). Yes, Ryan and Amber are engaged! And while we do feel like they are a little young, we can't deny the chemistry between Lauria and Whitman is just so darn good that we kind of don't care! Go young love! Statistics be damned! In other Braverman news, Kristina (Monica Potter) is running for Mayor(!), Hank (Ray Romano) is back in town (#StillTeamMarkCyr), and Crosby (Dax Shepard) and Jasmine (Joy Bryant) welcomed their little bundle of joy crankiness.
Flailing Friendship Feelings: How much do you love the friendship between Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) on The Big Bang Theory? Both missing Leonard (Jonny Galecki), the two bond by sharing secrets (She took her top off in a low-budget movie! He isn't really cool with Youtube changing its user interface!) and a sweet hug. All together now: Awwww! Also sharing some quality time? Amy (Mayim Bialik) and Bernadette (Melissa Rauch), who both think the other can do better in the guy department. (Ace line alert: "Your husband is extremely Howard.")
Line of the Night: "Who died and made you king of moments?" Sorry Raj, but we will be stealin' this line from The Big Bang Theory for approximately the rest of our lives.
