While George and Dallas are on good terms right now, having shrugged off a potential fight last week on Suburgatory, that doesn’t mean that they have to (or want to) be together 24/7. Part of the fun of a new relationship is watching it develop and that comes with both time and exploration of individual interests, not crowding one another out due to fear of breaking up. Particularly, with George and Dallas, you have two people who aren’t used to being around another adult in this way and in cases like theirs, it takes quite a while to get used to being a “we” rather than a “me.”
On the next episode of Suburgatory, Dallas has inadvertently smothered George by taking too much of an interest in his business, leading him to pull back and want more time on his own. He recruits Fred and Noah to form a dad garage band, meant to allow them to escape real life for a while, though it’s not long before their significant others catch wind. Of course, Jill can’t be bothered to care where Noah is, but Sheila joins the band as their singer and Dallas catches them rehearsing. If it had been a dad thing and George wanted time to explore other interests, Dallas might have been able to handle it; seeing another woman in the band, though, will make her feel like he deliberately doesn’t like hanging out with her. Can George diffuse the situation and keep his band?
Elsewhere on Suburgatory, Tessa and Ryan’s relationship becomes common knowledge around school and leads to the premiere “football girlfriend” trainer offering to help Tessa learn the ropes.
Suburgatory airs Wednesday at 9:30 on ABC. You can check out a recap of the previous episode here.
Will Tessa grow to be more comfortable around the other football girlfriends? How long will George’s band last, with Dallas and Sheila butting in? Is starting a band a good way to have a little “guy time”?
