What I’m Watching: The Detour

The Detour: Season 2, Episode 5 “The Birth” (B+)

We’re going back far into the past on this show, spending very little time in the present, with just the episode’s final scene returning us to the trial in motion. I like the brief glimpse of the future that we saw with both interogators realizing that Nate and Robin might both know more about the other’s stories than they’re letting on. It doesn’t surprise me at all that Nate would dress up as a blood-covered doctor with a chainsaw on Halloween while Robin was inside on the couch very pregnant with the twins, and that he got a comment from a concerned parent that he was going to be a terrible father. After contending with two women who couldn’t believe that he was with someone as hot as Robin, he had the quite epic journey to the hospital, highlighted by some other guy at the club being named Nate and trying desperately to injure himself so that the cops would give him a ride to the hospital. There’s a certain sweetness to the moments that he and Robin share that are defined by absurdity yet grounded in a nice connection, one that can set things back on course after a certain unwelcome husband showed up to try to claim fatherhood. I’m not even going to ask about this science regarding one woman having sex with two men during the same twenty-four hour period resulting in two different fathers of twins, but given how this show works, it seems pretty clear that Jareb may not be Nate’s son, a fact that isn’t ultimately going to matter because this family sticks through everything, no matter how crazy, together.
