'Schitt's Creek' Season 6 Episode 11: Stevie hosts David's bachelor party, Alexis second-guesses her breakup
The escape room happens to be Galapagos-themed and Alexis, who did not want to make it to this sorry party in the first place, is locked in the torture chamber
Spoilers for 'Schitt's Creek' Season 6 Episode 11 'The Bachelor Party'
After Moira Rose (Catherine O'Hara) refuses to work on what might have been a 'Sunrise Bay' reboot, 'Schitt's Creek' turns its focus on David (Dan Levy) and Alexis (Annie Murphy) in the episode 'The Bachelor Party'.
Stevie Budd (Emily Hampshire) is in charge of putting together David's dream bachelor party complete with dolphins. However, Elmdale is not that happening a place and she puts together what could be perhaps the saddest bachelor party you have ever seen — at "Elmdale's finest and only escape room."
And that is how the group finds itself in an escape room. The Roses aren't exactly thrilled to be roped into the Escape Room portion of David and Patrick's bachelor party. But they brave it through. This is a particularly difficult time for Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy).
Johnny is waiting on a call from a prospective venture capitalist whose investment would facilitate the expansion of the Rosebud Motel into a full-blown franchise.
However, Johnny happens to dodge his calls throughout the first part of the episode — all credit to Roland Schitt (Chris Elliott) — only to hilariously haggle with an "assistant" inside the escape room.
The escape room happens to be Galapagos-themed and Alexis, who did not want to make it to this sorry party in the first place, is locked in the torture chamber.
Her recent breakup with Ted Mullens (Dustin Milligan) has her devastated and if that is not proved by her sweatpants and the empty three yoghurts on her table then what will.
She begins wondering if breaking up with Ted was the wrong decision and that she should have just moved without giving it a thought. Alexis reminisces how only a few years ago this would not have been a problem — that she would have traveled across the world behind a guy. But not anymore, she must find herself.
Alexis is not the only one second-guessing herself — Moira thinks she should not have thrown away her chances at the 'Sunrise Bay' reboot after she finds herself lending her voice to poorly written jingles for Larry Air. Special mention to Catherine O'Hara's exaggerated enunciation in this sequence because it leaves you in splits.
It could be argued that 'Schitt's Creek' is slowly approaching its conclusion with sappier content. With barely three episodes left — the series concludes its final season on April 7, 2020 — 'Schitt's Creek' might be rushing to close off some of its chapters.
Towards the end of the episode, Alexis rues her breakup but sees that perhaps she needs to be in a bigger space hinting at new ventures.
'Schitt's Creek airs on Pop TV on Tuesdays at 9/ 8c.
