Plan B (#5.18)
15 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Because of Tray's Africa journey, TGS is going into a forced hiatus. Everyone is freaking out and goes for their plan B, especially worried is Liz who has no other skills but being a writer. Jack hires Devon who is a stay home dad now. And at the end it is Kenneth who manages to save the show.

It is a pretty funny episode. Of course especially awesome is to see Devon again. His rival exchanges with Jack are always great to watch. And his using his baby to be liked by the company was so him! Especially claiming that he brought the sexiest one.

Tracy was funny in his few minutes as well, will be great to see him back.
