“The Mick” Season 2 will see Sabrina taking a risk that may ruin her chances at getting into Yale.
According to the synopsis for Season 2, episode 11 of the Fox comedy, Sabrina (Sofia Black-D’Elia) believes she’s a shoe-in for Yale, but on the day of her interview, she takes a risk that may ruin her chances and jeopardize her future.
It’s unclear what risk it is, but the trailer for the episode suggests that Sabrina decides to take drugs prior to the interview. In the 30-second video, Sabrina’s aunt Mickey (Kaitlin Olson) collars a young man (Isiah Adams) and asks for his help. “You wanna help me. I’m on acid,” Mickey says. But after finding Mickey’s actions terrifying, the young man quickly gets out her hold and runs away.
Apparently, Mickey isn’t the only one on acid. When Sabrina accidentally hits Mickey with the door and the latter’s nose starts to bleed, Sabrina — who also seems to be high — tells Mickey, “Yeah [you’re bleeding], but it’s really red and so beautiful.”
Elsewhere in the episode, Alba (Carla Jimenez) gets a visit from her cousin and must pretend to be a maid again, so her family doesn’t disown her.
Last episode, Chip (Thomas Barbusca) found out that Howard (Matthew Glave) isn’t his real dad. Howard asked a friend of him from the FBI to run a DNA match for Chip, and it turned out that his real dad is a criminal. The synopsis and trailer for the next episode don’t give any hints about what’s next for Chip following the big revelation, but series creators Dave and John Chernin recently explained that putting Chip in such a complicated journey is an attempt to make the character a little modest.
“Chip is a character of ours that is just so unlikable and irredeemable on the surface that this gives us a little more leeway to torture him. I think that’s how that story got started. We wanted to humble chip,” John told Den of Geek.
“It’s a good equalizer because Chip is the most outwardly obnoxious of all of our characters,” Dave added. “But at the end of the day how much can you hate a kid who’s just trying to bond with who he thinks is his real father. Then he learns he needs to go through this all again for a third time. That’s heartbreaking, tragic stuff! And then it’s hard to hate that kid, who’s usually smug and repugnant.”
“The Mick” Season 2, episode 11, titled “The Trip,” airs on Tuesday, Jan. 9 at 9:30 p.m. EST on Fox.
