Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce Preview: “Rule #32: F-You, Rob Frumpkis!”
Warning: GG2D Spoilers
Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce is all new tonight. It’s time for Abby to dive right back into her career. As you’ll find out, she has some serious incentive to focus on making money.
Synopsis for “Rule #32: F-You, Rob Frumpkis”:Â Abby (Lisa Edelstein) gets offered to write a Huffington Post article about her dating experiences as a divorced woman and must go on ten dates in two days. Joâ€™s (Alanna Ubach) daughter arrives from New York. Meanwhile, Delia (Necar Zadegan), fearful that her affair with Gordon Beech (Matthew Glave) will become public knowledge and get her disbarred, takes action against Courtney Beech (Virginia Williams).
-Abby’s HuffPo article requires her to date ten guys in two days. Let the craziness ensue:
-Good news: The dates allow her to tap into her adventurous side. Better news: Will is back, ladies. Will is back. Yes, Warren Christie once again guest stars.
-Jo remains the volatile woman that she is. She is able to channel anger like nobody’s business. And wouldn’t you know it, she’s also able to get Abby’s anger juices flowing like nobody’s business.
-We also meet Jo’sÂ daughter who is very un-Jo like.
-This is week one of Max and Ford’s new/old “open” arrangement. We can’t see this ending well.
-Heads up, Delia fans. The lady lawyer makes a badass move that really shows she’s someone you shouldn’t mess with…ever. But by the end of the episode, we see her experience an uncharacteristic vulnerable moment. Kudos to Necar Zadegan. She’s our MVP for this episode.
-The Will/Abby chemistry is still sizzling. Scorching, even.
-Phoebe’s going through some growing pains: A sneak peek:
-Phoebe’s quest to find a purpose leads her to a very interesting (and charitable) place. The question is: Can her life coach-imposedÂ “mancation” last?
-Aside from the fabulous Warren Christie, there are a few other notable guest stars. The Guest Star Goodness includes:
- Matthew Glave — he’s Gordon Beech, the man having the affair with Delia. Glave played Dylan’s dad on a recent episode of NBC’s Parenthood and he appearedÂ on American Horror Story: Freak Show. Some of his many other TV credits include Suits, Growing Up Fisher, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Revenge, Desperate Housewives and Stargate SG-1. And he’s appearing in the pilot for TBS’ Angie Tribeca. The Steve Carell comedy takes a satirical look at police procedurals and stars former Parks and Rec star, Rashida Jones. Â But the role I will always associate most with him is when GlaveÂ played Drew Barrymore’s fiance, Glenn Guglia, in The Wedding Singer. If her character had married Glenn, she would have been Julia Guglia, remember?
- Virginia Williams — she’s Gordon’s fashion designing soon to be ex-wife, Courtney. Fans of Sarah Shahi’s USA Network series, Fairly Legal, will recognize Williams. She played Kate’s boss and step-mother, Lauren Reed. Her other TV Credits include Veronica Mars, Two and a Half Men, The Mentalist, Drop Dead Diva and How I Met Your Mother.
- Cameron Bancroft — he plays one of Abby’s many dates. He’s appearedÂ in threeÂ episodes of the CW’s Supernatural (as a doctor/Leviathan); he currently has a recurring role on the Hallmark Channel series, Cedar Cove; and he’s guest starred on 24, Charmed, Smallville, Psych and Eureka. But we know him best when he played Donna’s college quarterback boyfriend, Joe Bradley, on the late great primetime soap, Beverly Hills, 90210.
- Brandon Jay McLaren — Beyond happy to see McLaren make an appearance on GG2D. He plays an integral role in Phoebe’s storyline. It’s great to see him in this environment. After all, on USA Network’s Graceland, his character — U.S. Customs Agent Dale Jakes — has a lot of issues. During the second season, he was in a bad place. However, GracelandÂ will be back for a third season. We hope the producers of the show figure out a way to incorporate Jakes into the action even more. McLaren also starred in the first season of AMC’s The Killing. He was the teacher that everyone first thought killed Rosie Larsen. The actor also did several episodes of TNT’s Falling Skies in season two.
And finally, there’s one hitch in this excellent episode that we are anxious for everyone to see. We can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the matter.
Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on Bravo.
