‘The Neighborhood’ season 4 episode 8 will hit the TV screen after a short hiatus. Unfortunately, we will not be getting the upcoming episode next week. Adding salt to the wound is that that hiatus is going to last for three weeks. That’s a long time for the showrunners to make the fans wait for their favorite sitcom. Since the next episode is still pretty far, there’s currently no official tease yet.
Cedric the Entertainer stars as Calvin Butler. Max Greenfield stars as Dave Johnson, Tichina Arnold as Tina Butler, and Beth Behrs as Gemma Johnson. Sheaun McKinney stars as Malcolm Butler, Marcel Spears as Marty Butler, and Hank Greenspan as Grover Johnson.
Let’s now delve into all that episode 8 of The Neighborhood season 4 will entail. Spoilers ahead!
The Neighborhood S04 E07 Recap
Enter Jerome Bettis
Episode 7 opens with the Butler and Johnson families at a restaurant for dinner. Dave and Calvin are chatting when the former points to a famous NFL player Jerome Bettis who’s sitting several tables away from them. Calvin doesn’t believe it’s him at first but he eventually recognizes him. As he rushes to him and greets him like an old friend, we learn that they both know each other. They used to be friends in school and Jerome was also a great friend to Tina.
That’s when the ladies enter and Jerome and Tina greet each other. After Dave performs his drunk shenanigans, they decide to invite Jerome to dinner. Meanwhile, Malcolm and Marty are preparing for a poker night and have invited some friends over. Grover tries to participate in poker too but Malcolm and Marty refuse it. Marty has prepared what he claims is a mathematic algorithm to win at poker. He’s pretty confident in his mathematical calculations too. However, his confidence tanks when he bets big on the game and loses it all.
Reminiscing at the Dinner
Meanwhile, Calvin, Tina, Dave, and Gemma have dinner with Jerome. After a while, Marty and Malcolm join them when Calvin starts reminiscing about the school days. He talks about how he was known as “The Truck” and Jerome as “The Bus”. One thing leads to another and Jerome starts reminiscing about the days he and Tina were in a fling. This comes as a surprise to Calvin who doesn’t know anything about it. The reason for his cluelessness is his rule of “Don’t ask, leave the past in the past.”
Leave the Exes in the Past
After bidding farewell to Jerome, Calvin confronts Tina regarding her fling in the past. Tina tells him it’s because of his own rule that she never talked about it. Meanwhile, Gemma talks to Dave about him lying to her earlier regarding how many people did he date before her. Dave admits his mistake and says he didn’t because she used to get worked up about that. Later, Gemma talks to Calvin about his row with Tina. Calvin eventually realizes his mistake and apologizes to Tina. They make up and both confess how much they both still want each other.
