Leave it to Kenny Powers to make a bad thing worse - and downright creepy.
Sunday's episode picked up where we left off last week with Shane dead from a cocaine overdose and KP...well, still finishing up the rest of the blow before proceeding to clean the house and cover up the fact that he was with him before he died. But not before snagging Shane’s truck.
Back at home, KP is convinced Toby is a curse and that all of his bad karma can be attributed to the very presence of his own son.
Apparently, even Chex Mix and water can’t exorcise the demon within baby Toby. I'm not sure which made me laugh more: the "evil baby ruining my life" rant or Stevie investigating his private parts and being in need of some serious Gold Bond.
Meanwhile, KP runs into Ivan on the beach, where they trade barbs about Steve Caballero, surfing and porn. With the loss of his best friend, KP seems to be letting the presence of the Russian sensation bother him more than he’d like to admit.
And things only became weirder for KP at the funeral home. We know sexting is in these days, but taking cell phone pics of the dead? Keep it classy, KP.
And Stevie slapping Shane’s dead body as payback and saying “I win” might simultaneously be the most foul and hilarious thing I’ve seen done to a body postmortem. OK, so maybe KP and Stevie aren’t the only sick men in this recap.
Shane’s family shows up, and it turns out he had a twin brother, Cole (also played by Jason Sudeikis). I’m buying the whole good brother/bad brother thing, and Sudeikis pulls this off with ease as his Cole character is the antithesis of Shane. But that won’t keep KP from using the resemblance to his twisted advantage.
KP wants Cole to come out with him and see the life that his twin led, debauchery and all. In what might be one of the funniest, meanest and straight-up disgusting pranks ever, KP convinces Shane’s college girlfriend that he’s risen from the dead and introduces her to Cole. Let’s just say KP (and this blogger) were the only folks who found that to be even the slightest bit amusing.
Cole gets fed up with KP and lets him have it, calling Shane a deadbeat. He also calls KP an idiot and alludes to the fact that the family is suspicious about him driving a truck that’s eerily similar to the one that Shane drove.
The next day, KP gets rid Shane’s registration and heads off to the funeral. But not even death is sacred in his world. With the help of a boom box, Candlebox’s “Far Behind” and Pearl Jam’s "Alive," he succeeds at making Shane’s funeral all about him. I pretty much live for any public speaking KP delivers. Goose is dead, y’all!
While KP is addressing Shane’s family and friends, Stevie is “comforting” his sister in a car and subsequently cheats on Maria. Of course, this leads Stevie to throw up on himself, and chances are it will make or break things between him and Maria.
As KP leaves the cemetery he’s confronted by Cole, who demands that Shane’s truck be handed over. Cole drives away in the car with KP’s phone inside and when Stevie calls, he chucks the cell out the window.
Later that night, with no one else to turn to, KP finds comfort in reading stories to Toby from Penthouse, and we then get a shot of KP’s phone on the road with April calling.
So, what does April calling mean? What will happen with Stevie and Maria? Any predictions for the rest of the season? Sound off!
