Now that Gail is officially Carol’s mom, she’s officially treating her like one — which means she’s trying to make poor, uninterested Gail take a family photo, complete with matching outfits. Oh, and those matching outfits involve white overalls and turtleneck sweaters. Who wouldn’t want to participate?
As its fans well know, The Last Man On Earth is everything a comedy is supposed to be — funny, vibrant, creative. It also has a superpower few sitcoms can claim: a mean sucker-punch to the gut. Just when you think you’re settling in for a half-hour of Tandy “booms,” you get hit with television that leaves you in tears. It happened when Phil died on the table; it happened when Tandy struggled to let go of his sick brother, Mike. And it happens again tonight, in the aptly titled “The Open-Ended Nature of Unwitnessed Deaths,” when Tandy takes Lewis home.
After all these survivors have been through, they could use a win (or several). And they finally get one in this episode, when they enter the lit-up building they stumbled upon last week and find it has electricity, flushable toilets, and frozen pizza. Civilization!
As it turns out, this structure is a self-sustaining office building that looks like it was intended to house a Google-style company, but the virus apparently hit before anyone could move in. This means there’s plenty of space, enough for everyone to have their own area — kind of.
“Look, we’ve all been through a lot,” Erica says at one point during tonight’s episode. “I think we’re all coming apart at the seams a little bit.” Or, uh, a lot?
Melissa’s still acting like she’s the group’s resident ruthless security guard; Gail’s still drinking her troubles (and boredom) away; Tandy’s still…Tandy. And taking a road trip to an undecided location — yes, they leave Malibu before agreeing where to call home next — only makes their “quirks” even more pronounced. It also causes some things to come out into the open.
A nice thing about living in a post-apocalyptic world with barely any inhabitants is you don’t really have to worry about security. The Last Man crew loses that perk, though, once they realize Pat is probably (definitely) alive and probably (definitely?) plotting his revenge. Their picturesque Malibu — or, you know, as picturesque as a completely deserted beach town can be — is no longer safe.
The biggest mystery of The Last Man on Earth is morphing from “Is Pat dead?” into “Where did Pat go?”
Good news: Cher (okay, a replica of Cher) makes a cameo in this episode. Bad news: She’s dead. Also dead? Pat — or at least that’s what Tandy thinks.
SPOILER ALERT: This story contains plot details from Sunday’s season 3 premiere of The Last Man on Earth.
Don Draper wasn’t always the best person, and he definitely wasn’t the best — or even a good — husband. He cheated on Betty, like, all the time. He was condescending. He lied. And then he married Megan and did the same thing all over again.
Now that wait has ended, the confrontation can begin.
