Question: Do you know if Dalia will still be living with George next season on Suburgatory? I love that dynamic. I hope it doesn’t go away just because George and Dallas broke up. —Tania H
Ausiello: I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it sounds like it’s going away. “Dalia will really want to remain part of George’s world, but given what has gone on with her and Tessa, how realistic is that?” muses series creator Emily Kapnek. “It will be really hard for George to justify spending time with Dalia. It will hurt him probably to turn his back on her. Until Dalia and Tessa can reconcile, there really is no place for Dalia to go with that. I imagine that she would be really upset and hurt, and probably take some of this stuff out on Dallas, blaming her for the loss of Daddy Altman.”
Question: Burning Suburgatory Q — will Malin Akerman be hanging around Chatswin next season? —Sharada
Ausiello: “That’s the intention,” says series creator Emily Kapnek. “If her [ABC pilot Trophy Wife], for whatever reason, didn’t go forward, we’d love to do an extended episode arc with her. If we were able to even just get her for a couple [episodes], in the event that her pilot did go forward, that would be great, too.” Should the underrated comedy be back for Season 3 (and I remain convinced it will) Kapnek can easily envision the show “evolving into a co-parenting” situation, with Tessa bouncing between Jeremy Sisto’s George and Akerman’s Alex. Regardless, she assures fans that “George and Tessa are due for a little bit of a reconnection.”
In the first part of the hour, “Apocalypse Meow,” Dallas offers to help George tell Tessa that he’s sold their house and that they’re combining residences, but it doesn’t go as planned. The rift between Dalia and Tessa widens as Dalia goes out of her way to make Tessa miserable and Tessa seeks break-up revenge. Meanwhile, Noah obsesses over Carmen even though she’s dating his therapist.
In the second part, “Stray Dogs,” Sheila launches a chastity campaign in Chatswin and convinces Mr. Wolfe to throw a Chastity Ball at the high school, assuming that Lisa will be crowned queen of the ball. Meanwhile George buys a house for Dallas and receives a visit from her ex-husband, and Tessa sets up residence in her bathroom stall at school.
#2.20 – “Go, Gamblers!” – When it comes time for Ryan to choose a college, Tessa endeavors to remain neutral even though Ryan begs her to decide for him. Tessa ultimately rigs his decision-making process, and Dalia uses this to her advantage. Meanwhile, George asks Dallas to move in with him in the most unromantic way, and as a newly licensed realtor, Sheila sells George’s house before it hits the market.
There’s trouble brewin’ in suburban paradise!
Suburgatory is welcoming back Jay Mohr, who will reprise his role as Steve Royce, Dallas’ (Cheryl Hines) ex-husband, we’ve exclusively learned.
And he’s not just returning for any ol’ episode, as the comedian will be back for the ABC hit comedy’s season two finale!
Though details of what brings Steven back to Chatswin are being kept under wraps, we’re sure fans of Dallas and George’s (Jeremy Sisto) relationship are less than thrilled by the news of his return.
Dallas divorced Steven after it was revealed he was cheating on her. Viewers last saw Steve in the season one episode “The Casino Trip.”
The season finale is set to air in April.
#2.19 – “Decemberfold” – When George agrees to participate in the “Dads of Chatswin” calendar, he becomes obsessed with his body image and alienates Dallas. Meanwhile Dalia buddies up to Tessa, and Lisa discovers her true motives.
#2.18 – “Brown Trembler” – Post-divorce Noah and Opus take up residence in a high end hotel until the Chatswin moms corner George and force him to intervene. Luckily George allows Noah and Opus to move in with him until they get back on their feet. Meanwhile, Dallas discovers that Dalia is a hoarder, and Fred enlists Tessa to school him on what’s hip so he can land the job of his dreams.
Question: Suburgatory scoop, please. – Latifah
Ausiello: Bad news: Ryan Shay’s leaving. Better news: I’m kinda-sorta screwing with you. The truth is, Ryan will be going off to college on a football scholarship in the Season 2 finale, but series creator Emily Kapnek insists Parker Young will be back next fall (assuming the show gets a third season pickup from ABC, which, come on, it will). “We have a great, fantastic scene with Ryan and Tessa coming up in the finale,” Kapnek tells TVLine, “[where they are] navigating his departure and whether or not he can live with being away.” Adds Young: “[They] learn to come to terms with the fact that they can’t be together forever…. [Tessa is] a strong girl; she can handle being abandoned.” Bonus Scoop: Kapnek says Tessa’s mom (played by Malin Akerman) will resurface before season’s end.
