'The Unicorn' Season 2 Episode 4 Spoilers: Is it Delia's turn to get shaded by Michelle after Forrest?
Forrest and Delia might mean well but they clearly have the least idea of what it's like to spend a day in Ben and Michelle's world
CBS's 'The Unicorn' Season 2 is returning a full two weeks after it decided to go on hiatus following its third episode and the drama between Wade's (Walton Goggins) best friend is far from over. After Forrest (Rob Corddry) got a piece of Ben (Omar Benson Miller) and Michelle's (Maya Lynne Robinson) mind, looks like it's his wife Delia's (Michaela Watkins) turn to get snapped and sassed by the snarky Michelle, and once again, it's all got to do with - you guessed it - their kids.
According to the official synopsis of Season 2's Episode 4 titled 'Work It', "After Ben recommends Wade for a job on the same worksite he's on, they are surprised by their wildly different professional styles; Delia is struggling to not be so judgmental about how Michelle is raising her kids." This comes after the previous Episode 3 titled 'It's the Thought that Counts' saw Forrest get gravely wrong what to gift Ben and Michelle's son Noah for his birthday. Forrest ended up gifting Noah a blue water gun at the party, and that seemed to hit the wrong nerve with his parents.
When Forrest pointed out that the gun was blue and shouldn't be an issue, Ben reminded him it wasn't so much as the color of the gun he gifted, as it was the color of Noah's skin that was relevant in this scenario. The topic soon turned into Ben, Forrest and Michelle having an honest and open discussion on racial violence and injustice and how that's the reason Noah has never been seen with even so much as a play gun. Forrest took it all the right way, accepting the offense Ben and Michelle took and attempting to look at this as a learning curve to correct himself.
But shortly after he made a nice save in time, his wife Delia might get on the wrong books of their friends by whatever comment she has to make about the way Michelle is raising her children. We know Delia enough to not expect her to turn into the signature White Karen stereotype and go full ballistic on Ben and Michelle protecting their kids from guns and the connotations of it, but there is going to be some drama inevitably as Michelle does not take too kindly to being criticized on her parenting.
'The Unicorn' Season 2 airs on Fridays at 9.30 pm.
