Last Man Standing season 7 episode 9 preview: The holiday special!

Last Man StandingNext week, Last Man Standing season 7 episode 9 is going to arrive over on Fox and with it, hopefully will come a substantial amount of holiday cheer. This is the Christmas episode, and when you think of this particular time of year, you probably think about a few different things: Gifts, traditions, and family. All three are going to be a part of this upcoming episode, which carries with it the title of “The Gift of the Mike Guy.” That is a clear reference to the classic Christmas tale The Gift of the Magi, though this episode may not have too many references to the classic story depending on the name. (We’re not sure if the series wants to go with all that deep of a literary adaptation — the jury is still out on that.)

Below, CarterMatt has the full Last Man Standing season 7 episode 9 synopsis with some more information on what lies ahead:

Mike finds getting Ed a special Christmas present is easier said than done…for the man who has everything. Meanwhile, Eve returns to visit and Vanessa helps the family realize the importance of their long-standing holiday family traditions in the all-new “The Gift of the Mike Guy” episode of LAST MAN STANDING airing Friday, Dec. 14 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (LMS-710) (TV-PG L).

We’re not sure if this episode is going to reinvent the wheel or set out any new characters on a new course in their lives. It’s not really about that. This is mostly just a chance for Last Man Standing to deliver some trademark humor and festive holiday cheer at a time in which viewers crave it. Given that the show wasn’t on last fall to deliver a holiday special, that makes this one all the more essential. It’s also the final one of 2018, though with this being a full 22-episode season, there are going to be some opportunities for the series to shine once more entering the new year. We’re not even at the halfway point just yet! Fox has proven themselves to be patient when it comes to rolling out new episodes, knowing more than likely that this is a long season and they were going to need a lot of new episodes in the winter / spring in order to rule the night. (Last Man Standing has remained the #1 series on the schedule for a good while now.)
