'Mom' Season 8 Episode 4: Chef Rudy and Tammy return with all-new 'Coq Au Van', fans dig their 'matching berets'
Fans have been loving watching Tammy and Rudy together, despite their complicated relationship
Surprise, surprise, it's the return of Chef Rudy (French Stewart) and his faithful assistant, Paul (Reggie DeLeon). The cooking duo may have lost their jobs at the Rustic Fig, but they're not about to let a career-breaker like that bring them down. The two are striking out on their own, bringing their high-class cooking to the van-trailer experience, with their new van idea, "Coq Au Van" and Tammy (Kristen Johnston) is there to help them out, delighting the fans.
Bringing classic French cuisine to roller derby fans prove to be quite a challenge for the duo, as Rudy's high standards for food aren't quite appreciated by people who just want a quick meal. Tammy decides to suit up and help the duo out to keep their customers happy and speed up the cooking process. Fans have been loving watching Tammy and Rudy together, despite their complicated relationship.
"Chef Rudy and Tammy," wrote one fan, with a heart. "I love how Chef Rudy and Jill are flirting and the tension is palpable. The heat is hot. Hahaha," wrote a fan, mistakenly replacing "Tammy" with "Jill". "Matching berets!" noted one fan, enjoying the image of the two, side-by-side. One fan lamented Rudy and Paul's fall from grace, writing, "I hate that Chef Rudy and Paul aren’t at the Rustic Fig anymore. Ugh."
Chef Rudy's spirits start to falter, it's Tammy who helps get them to rise again. Together, Tammy, Rudy and Paul are able to figure out a way to combine Rudy's high standards with a faster way of cooking for people who just want good, hot, filling street food - combining Coq Au Vin with pita bread for easier consumption. However, despite their past history of multiple breakups, the second the two of them get a moment together after the cooking is done, it's not long before the two of them are hooking up all over again. "i guess chef rudy is a mistake you only make 4 times lol" joked a fan. Despite all of Tammy's restrictive anti-attraction rules, the two just can't seem to keep a strictly professional relationship.
The next episode of 'Mom' airs on December 10 on CBS.
