Sorry for the delays on all the recaps. I am a bit under the weather. I’m going to see if I can bang of a Family Karma recap and take it from there. It looks like we are going to start with the awkward relationship between Monica and Brian. Clearly, they are perfect together. Brian claims he has outgrown his douche bag days. However, he seems terrified of coupons. I think Monica’s wallet full of groupons is an asset.
Vishal and Amrit go to workout. Vishal is pissed that his future mother in law, Lopa trashes him everywhere she goes. And, Vishal has crohn’s disease that is in remission but it is triggered by stress. Lopa causes him a lot of stress. Vishal has also distanced himself from Anisha. They are very close but when she tried to contact him after Lopa’s mean comments, he stopped taking her calls. I don’t get that.
Bali Has a Big Mouth
This week we meet Bali’s boyfriend. He’s a white guy from Kentucky. They are in a long distance relationship. They go out to dinner with Vishal, Richa and Amrit. Bali asks Vishal what is going on with him and Anisha. I don’t get why Vishal can’t just use his words with Vishal. Somehow the guys and Richa think Anisha is just a drama queen. Amrit says Vishal is his best friend, not Anisha. Later, when Vishal and Brian go to the driving rang, Brian mentions that Lopa talked about him to his dad. Vishal cuts the conversation off.
Then we get to Anisha’s lunch with Gopal, her grandpa and my favorite person on the show. He really wants Anisha to get married and have a baby. Bali is really stirring the pot with Vishal and Anisha. The conversation where Anisha tries to explain she is gong to freeze her eggs to her grandparents is like they are speaking two different languages. And funny.
Lopa Gives Vishal Her Blessing, Sort Of Not Really
Vishal and Richa need to have a traditional Indian engagement party to bring the two families together. But first, Vishal needs to get Lopa’s blessing. He tries to do this on the phone and when Lopa realizes what he is asking, the connection starts to get bad. Her “blessing” was something like, “I guess so.” Vishal says that is good enough for him.
Bali and talks to Amrit and admits she told Anisha about his negative comments about her. Amrit seems to think Anisha likes Vishal as more than a friend. Bali admits that she is going to run this information right back to Anisha. Amrit needs to stop saying anything to Bali that he doesn’t want the entire world to know. Amrit decides he needs to apologize to Anisha all the all cast “Fire Tower” celebration.
Two Mama’s Boys With Small Dick Energy
Vishal’s family and friends celebrate Diwali together before going to the big Fire Tower party. It doesn’t look like we are going to get to the big party on this episode. For now, this giant game of telephone continues. Bali and Anisha talk some more before the party. And by talking I mean Bali repeats everything Amrit said to her in private. That’s shady.
At Vishal’s family celebration, Amrit tells Vishal about Bali. Meanwhile, Bali is back on the phone telling Anisha that Amrit asks if Anisha liked Vishal. Anisha says she would never date the village idiot. That doesn’t sound like a best friend talking. Anisha says she is gross and disgusted and wants to vomit. She doesn’t seem like a very good friend either.
Next week the shit hits the fan at the biggest party of the year. And it is all Bali’s fault.
