Suburgatory 2×02: A gone goatee, now THAT’s Halloween horror!

Suburgatory 2×02: The Witch of East Chatswin

Halloween, as if Chatswin wasn’t already creepy enough.

1. What just happened?!
It’s Halloween, or stripper shoe season, in Chatswin. As Dalia and her entourage come up with alarmingly slutty (and smelly) outfit plans, Tessa points out to them that women should not let themselves degrade even more by society on All Hallows Eve. I mean, like the beer ads, the wage gap and the chart topping return of Chris Brown aren’t enough. Good point Tessa, it just doesn’t come across that well with the Chatswin-blondies I believe. On the other hand, you do have someone that seems to have more of an interest in you. Too bad it’s the scary witch of East Chatswin…

Dallas’s clock strikes Barbie time, so she asks George to be her Ken. Note to George: when a Dallas asks you to be her Ken, a Dallas does not ask that without reason. But then, George apparently lights a spark within Noah as well, as the blonde best friend decides to dress up as the bearded New Yorker. Although the deep dark voice is kinda tricky, Noah thinks that he can do a believable George impersonation. George doesn’t agree and wants to proof that he can do a better Noah one. Which eventually involves…and hold on, here comes the actual Halloween HORROR… George shaving his chest- and facial hair! (R.I.P. George’s goatee)

This all ends in some questions on the night of the Halloween parties: who is the better impersonator? Will George ever be Dallas’s Ken? Who is the scary witch of East Chatswin and why do people find her so extremely scary? (I’ll give you a hint, it’s typically Chatswin- exaggerated.)

2. What was the most memorable quote or dialog this episode?
The great quotes appear to have hidden under costumes as well. No funny not-to-forget one liners this week.

3. Cuteness vs. Useless
– Two Chris Brown references in one minute? Let’s not overdo it now.
+ Tessa and Lisa consulting the spirits. Seemed for a sec like Jane Levy and Allie Grant had to hold in their laugh there too.
+ Noah as George was really funny.
+ Tessa and her friends as the Scooby Doo gang. Yay for nerdy 90s outfits. Especially Lisa and Tessa turn out to be an impeccable Velma and Daphne.
+ Nice to see there is more on the table for George and Dallas.

4. Rate it! (on a scale from 0 to 10)
This week’s episode had less depth, story and witty lines than last week’s. Weirdly enough, I enjoyed it more. Plus, I feel like we got a little sneak peek for the upcoming weeks at the end when Tessa linked her recent adventures to her mom. Curious to see that, but for now: 7.

What do you think of this week’s episode?
