The big day has come — it’s Christmas day in the Quinn household and Episode 6 mustered up the drama we have all been waiting for. I wasn’t exactly sure what drama was going to be spooned up, but Episode 6 gives some scenarios to ponder.
Don (Dennis Quaid) is getting too overeager with Nancy — he invites her around on Christmas Day and the entire scenario is a tad overwhelming, especially with Don’s father-in-law present who makes things awkward for Don as much as possible. Don makes another misstep with Nancy, treating her like his girlfriend in front of his family and it immediately encourages her to leave. The family asserts that Don was too hands-on. His father-in-law advises stepping back a little.
Alan returns! Yes, the man that requested a divorce with Kayla shows up and insists he has missed her and wants her back. She accepts, but Matt is disappointed, knowing full well she seeks a woman in her life, not a man. Matt tries to give Kayla advice in secret and she palms it off.
But the biggest moment came when Emmy gives Matt his Christmas present, and in return, she eagerly waits for him to propose. He has no present for her as he was banking on proposing until he found out about Emmy’s job offer. He sings her a romantic song that sounds like he is going to propose with the lyrics, but he changes it to, “will you, continue to date me?”.
Merry Happy Whatever Season 1, Episode 6, “Merry Ex-Mas” closes with Emmy and Matt having a fall out. Emmy tells her father she believes they have broken up and asks why he never gave Matt his blessing.
