‘The Neighborhood’ season 4 episode 5 will follow Calvin and Tina embarking on a matchmaking pursuit for Marty. The episode will change the more somber tone from the previous episode to a fun one. There is no official promo for episode 5 just yet. However, the synopsis promises a lot of fun and laughs. The Neighborhood follows Calvin, an extremely friendly guy, and his family. The show is about what happens when Calvin moves his family to a neighborhood in LA. What Calvin finds upon moving to LA is that not everyone is appreciative of his extreme neighborliness. What’s more, is that the Neighborhood is predominantly white. The second family in focus is the Johnson family.
Dave Johnson, a good-natured, professional conflict negotiator, has moved to the same neighborhood with his wife and son. His wife Gemma got a job as a school principal in LA — the reason why they moved there from Michigan. Calvin is initially wary of the Johnsons and what their arrival might entail for the Neighborhood. Calvin’s wife, Tina, however, is very welcoming. So are the Butler family’s two sons. Marty, the younger one, thinks the Johnsons are a great addition to the Neighborhood. Meanwhile, the older one — Malcolm, thinks that Dave is finally someone who understands him. As Dave tries to fit into this Neighborhood, we see the two families go about their daily endeavors laughs aplenty. Let’s now delve more into what episode 5 of The Neighborhood season 4 will entail. Spoilers ahead!

What Happened Previously on The Neighborhood — Episode 4 Recap
Episode 4 of The Neighborhood was a rather heavy entry in the sitcom’s fifth season. The episode was replete with heart-tugging moments of loss and grief. However, the episode was also greatly touching in its heartwarming moments. Titled “Welcome to the Porch Pirate”, the episode dealt with Dave and Gemma after they faced a tragedy. Dave and Gemma had a miscarriage, leading the couple to bear a lot of grief and devastating loss. Dave and Gemma are the neighbors of the Butler family. A loving couple dealing with such a painful loss was certainly a highlight for the light-hearted sitcom.
However, The Neighborhood has never been one to shy away from the emotional moments. Episode 4 was replete with such heartfelt tearjerkers throughout its runtime. Being their neighbors, Calvin and Tina go to the couple’s house and offer them emotional support. Calvin and Tina do a great job lending the couple a shoulder to cry on. We also saw how great Calvin and Tina are at empathizing with the couple in huge distress. The reason for that, as we later learn, is that Calvin and Tina went through a difficult time that tested their own family as well. Their own struggles from the past made the Butler couple adept at being the perfect emotional support for the Johnsons.
