Episode cast overview, first billed only:


After the talk-show discloses in detail how diabolically smart serial killer Lucy survived her mishandled execution and the embarrassed authorities discretely released her, she returns to Natesville and files for custody of Hope. The Chances still can hire no better lawyer the self-confessed incompetent Wally Phipps, so the court case is almost lost in advance. Only irresistible Jimmy's unshakable paternal love can still make the difference. Written by KGF Vissers

For how hilarious I normally find this show, the last 2 episodes of season 2 were severely disappointing. The family's hijinx are usually funny enough to justify just about any harebrained plot. But bringing Lucy back from the dead just to make the family afraid of losing the baby, and then to undermine Jimmy and Sabrina's relationship only to kill off Lucy for real? Everything about the court case was either nonsensical or a stretch. A jury deciding a custody case? I try not to be picky about that kind of stuff with sitcoms, but when the episode isn't even funny (I think in these 2 episodes, I only laughed at a couple of Maw Maw lines an that was it), it's hard to ignore the blaring errors.

I know the overarching theme was that the Chances are far from perfect but they do the best they can, but really, we already knew that. It's one of the major themes of the show - that you don't need money and a formal education or sophistication to be a loving family. The way these 2 episodes tried to support that was just really strange and unnecessary. I hope season 3 is more like season 1.

Also, ever since Sabrina and Jimmy started dating, it seems like Sabrina has become more of a sidenote. She's also not as snarky anymore, which is sad. That was part of her appeal.
