Spoilers for Season 2 Episode 3
CBS is finally back with another brand new episode of 'The Unicorn' Season 2 and it's a difficult time for all parties involved. On one hand, Forrest hits a nerve with Ben and Michelle when he gifts their son Noah a water gun, thus sparking off a much needed but tough conversation on racial injustice, and then there's the ever-complicated relationship between Wade and Shannon that gets more confusing making us wonder if she is already lying to him, this early in whatever the two are brewing.
The third episode of this season, titled 'It's the thought that counts' sees Wade super freaked out about how to best celebrate Shannon's birthday after finally scoring the woman of his dreams. But turns out, Shannon isn't quite keen on celebrating her birthday. When Wade decides to gift her something, Shannon expresses that she doesn't like making a big deal out of her birthday, let alone celebrate it. Yet when Wade shows up at her place with a non-gift, aka a plant, there's a "full-blown party" going on at hers. Did she lie to Wade about her birthday party? Does she no want him around? Is she not keen on introducing him to her close circle?
Soon as Wade walks in on Shannon's party, fans pointed out just how absurd all of this is. "if she doesn’t celebrate her birthday how’s she having a full on party?" asked a fan on Twitter with the confused woman trying to solve a math equation meme-gif. Another one follows suit with yet another confused kid gif, noting: "I don't celebrate my birthday. Having a full on house party." Others cheered for Wade to find out just what's up with his new lady, tweeting: "Wow! Shannon's having some party! C'mon in Wade!!" Another fan was left jilted on Wade's behalf, as they tweeted: "Kinda pissed me off playing Wade like that." For other fans, it was all about how there are "So many misunderstandings between Shannon and Wade."
Wade relax, her friends threw her a surprise birthday party #TheUnicorn— 🔝P L A I N 📚 E L A I N E🔝 (@WordsByJPaul) December 4, 2020
The answer, however comes shortly, and was also predicted by one fan-tweet that pointed out: "Wade relax, her friends threw her a surprise birthday party." It's true, as the moment Wade walks into the party, there isn't any discomfort from Shannon's end. She was thrown away by her friends' surprise too and is more than happy to introduce the new man in her life. In fact, Shannon's friends seem to have only heard nice things about him, especially his butt, as they ask Wade to flaunt his "cute a**" to check if it's really as great as Shannon says it is. Wade takes it all in good humor too, and all's good in the zone once again.
'The Unicorn' airs on Thursdays at 9.30 pm only on CBS.
