Ordinary Joe Review: Thankful (1×09)

In preparation for Thanksgiving this year Ordinary Joe Season 1 Episode 9,” Thankful,” brought together family in every timeline. While meant to be a joyous celebration, instead caused strife and greater separation among prominent family members. Things are slowly to fall apart in every universe, for a more exciting show.

Trying to find their footing after the scandalous announcement of Amy’s infidelity with Bobby, Joe and Amy can’t seem to find peace of mind. Their interactions remained minimal and strained.

Whereas things have started heating up between the two in the blue storyline. Not only is Amy living with the family, but she’s also invited to the big family Thanksgiving dinner. Where both Amy and Joe are in Uncle Frank’s line of fire for his indefinite suspension.

This rigidity between the three guests is a bit tedious, and until living Bobby is disciplined for his wrongdoings, things won’t speed up. However, Joe’s confession of feelings using the three big words “I love you,” seems to be speeding up his relationship with Amy. Originally, it seemed as though things might fizzle out, but surprisingly they’ve made up for Amy’s past infidelities with Bobby.

I guess things are different for Joe as long as Amy sleeps with Bobby while not in a relationship herself. It’s hard to fault her when Bobby’s the one in the wrong in the blue storyline. We don’t get to see much of Jenny at all during this episode, but specifically, in this blue storyline, she’s left out almost entirely. Aside from the quick moments in the office.

Jenny’s stuck in Atlanta for the holidays, introducing Kinsley, a new character whose job is to help with Chris while Jenny’s away. Though Kinsley’s job is simply to assist, it looks like she might be there to help Joe’s loneliness as well. So, as Joe’s dealing with Amy’s cheating in the other stories, it looks like he might be dabbling in his own in the green timeline.

But, maybe it would be a one for one kind of deal because Jenny’s work bae is a long pit stop in Atlanta to help with the bono case. I’m really hoping this is the writer’s way of leading us down a deceptive path because I’m still rooting for Jenny and Joe!

Once Jenny reveals to Joe that her son with Ray is in fact his, things will get a bit more interesting. The technicalities of all these political scandals are the show’s current focus, but the meat of the show lies more with the personal tribulations and struggles of the characters.

Speaking of personal struggles, we’re left with a huge cliffhanger. In an unsurprising turn of events, Amy’s pregnant with Bobby’s child. An extra bad omen for Joe and Amy as they were trying for so long to get pregnant. I can’t see this ending well. Joe’s definitely going to have mixed emotions about Amy’s pregnancy. He’s wanted a child for so long, and that’s all he wants, but to have Bobby’s child will only remind him of Amy’s lies.

Stray Musings:

Gwen is such a mom. The entire family dynamic seemed so wholesome and American family perfection until Celeste came in and blew off the lid. She opened a can of worms that will certainly be difficult to put together. It was hinted at earlier that there was tension with Celeste, and now we’re finally clued in. I wonder if they’ll go more in-depth about Joe’s father.
It’s nice to see Eric and Amy happy and in love in the green storyline. They are the sweetest couple.

Rating: 3.5/5
