Hank wakes up in the hospital after his accidental overdose. Not only is a cynical doctor at his side, but Karen who invites him home, making Hank wonder if he's really died and gone to heaven. Mia comes by the house to apologize to Hank where she is confronted first by Karen, and then Becca. After being robbed by four teenage misfits, led by Pearl, Becca is invited to join their band, The Queens of Dogtown. Meanwhile, Hank has realized that Karen is only acting so nice because she thinks he's suicidal, but how long will Becca allow him to keep the truth from her mother? Charlie tells Hank that he's got to get working on the F&P script, as Producer Stu Beggs is getting antsy. So antsy, in fact, that he drives over to the Runkle Residence to confront Charlie, but instead meets Marcy, who is oddly intrigued by the man in the Maserati. After securing permission to pursue Marcy, Stu hooks Charlie up with promiscuous D-Girl Heather, as Charlie embarks to sleep with 100 women. Written by Anonymous

"I Killed Myself Today"
31 July 2018 | by baapooSee all my reviews

So, I saw the episode and obviously loved it as the rating I gave shows but when i came here to rate, the episode was poorly rated(i mean 7.8 is good rating but not what this masterpiece of a episode is worth and maybe its not worth 10 too but you'll judge yourself) and i have to review this and let all know what a masterpiece it is from the soundtrack to cinematography to direction this is the best episode so far well in my opinion at least. So, this episode starts with Hank being hospitalized and Karen being Karen has to come see her and many people may have problem with that but it only shows the love and care they have for each other even though things aren't right but love is there and it will be there always. she thinks he tried to suicide and that's what gets her but i won't spoil the plot and the other thing i liked about the episode was the ultimate confrontation of hank from his daughter and it was answered in a way and the end was the best and my god that track was amazing and so fitting.
