If there an episode of “Two and a Half Men” that pretty much everyone in the world saw coming, it was this week’s epsiode. Why? After dating since last season, this week marked the end of the relationship between Alan and Lyndsey.
So how did this end? Really, in the same sort of predictable way that you would have expected with Lyndsey, one of the few women on this show who is seemingly normal, deciding to end things in as much of a civil way as possible. Of course, it wasn’t civil at all for Alan. He freaked out, and pretty much the rest of the episode was about him freaking out over the end of the relationship. He was as creepy as creepy could be, and there is really nothing else you could expect from this show.
Really, we don’t know how many words that we could use to describe this episode other than just “juvenile.” Alan broke his bones trying to stalk her, but is there really anything else that we should have expected? He’s a creep through and through, and the real question we’re wondering at this point is how she stayed with him for as long as she did.
The most interesting thing about this episode, though, is what this means for Alan’s character long-term. Is there an endgame here? We know that CBS plans to bring the show back for another year, and even if he is a louse at times, he’s still a louse that everyone wants to see some sort of happy ending for … or at least some sort of evidence that he can change beyond just being a cheap guy who mooches off everyone else.
