What I’m Watching: Life in Pieces (Season Finale)

Life in Pieces: Season 2, Episode 22 “Poison Fire Teats Universe” (B)

Each of this episode’s vignettes picked up exactly where they left off last week with the troubles that every member of the family experienced getting to Mexico for Matt and Colleen’s wedding. Greg’s attempt to apologize to the man who he gave a coconut cookie to was entirely ill-fated, and Jen was smart enough to realize that he shouldn’t be officially admitting to anything. While she did manage to stop him from saying anything else incriminating, he was dumb enough to write some of it down in the card that he included which the lawyer promptly bagged for evidence. Tyler and Clementine offering to have the family come stay in their tiny house was pretty funny, and my favorite part was when they put on the coats they collected because they didn’t have anywhere else to put them. “Will and Grace” Emmy winner Leslie Jordan made a helpful appearance to get John distracted by the idea of turning Tank into a show dog, thereby prohibiting a surgery that would leave a scar. Fortunately, all worked out well, which is probably for the best given the frenzied nature of the vet. Colleen hit rock bottom when she threw her wedding dress off the balcony, and it’s nice that Matt was able to put something together to give her the most romantic wedding he could under the circumstances. It wasn’t perfect or all that formal, sure, but it was really sweet and an endearing way to end the season on a heartwarming note.

Season grade: B
Season MVP: Zoe Lister-Jones as Jen
