While the whodunnit part of the episode was strong, the rest of it felt like a bunch of filler.
This recap of the Apple TV+ series Central Park season 3, episode 6 recap – “A Matter of Life and Boeuf,” contains spoilers.
We had a fun-filled episode last week on Central Park. First, we had Owen learn that he might not have been a great friend. Next, Abby struggled to find a job. Last, The pieces came together for Owen to impress the mayor. I am excited to see what is in store for us this week. Let’s dive in.
Central Park season 3, episode 6 recap
The show starts with Abby making a big breakfast because she is trying to butter up Paige and Owen. As she is about to share, she has an exciting new job, but she is working for Bitsy, which we know isn’t a beloved person to the Tillman family. Paige and Owen arrive at the table, and Abby gives the big news. Paige realizes that she is onto something. Cole blurts out that Abby is working for Bitsy and Paige freaks out a little. However, Abby talks them into coming to dinner tonight.
We move to my two favorite characters, Bitsy and Helen, where we see Helen awake Bitsy tells her that someone ordered the côte de boeuf. Birdie breaks down what precisely the côte de boeuf is. It is a $20,000 steak that Bitsy added to the menu because she wanted to raise Brandenham’s rep. Once she serves this steak, she will become an enemy of every restaurant in town. With this being ordered for tonight’s dinner and the Tillman family coming, we know this isn’t going to end well for anyone.
Birdie breaks into a song about what makes the côte de boeuf so special, followed by an assist by Abby joining in on the song to let the Tillmans know why tonight is going to be so special. Dinner has begun, and the Tillmans are having themselves a little bit of a good time. That was until Bitsy arrived at the restaurant, laying out the groundwork until her brother came, and this is when we found out he ordered the steak.
Ambrose (her brother) says he wanted to see how she could mess up something so good, causing Bitsy to head to the kitchen and lose her s**t. Of course, she freaks out, knocking all the food all over the ground, and the chef arrives to announce he is ready to cook the steak and tells Abby she will be doing the presentation, much to her delight.
Much to the surprise of no one, Ambrose wants Bitsy and the chef to throw the $20,000 steak into a blender and make it drink. Bitsy freaks out and blames Paige as the steak fell off the plate and has gone missing. Paige storms into the room to protect her sister from Bitsy because she wants to throw her in jail. Bitsy is trying to get to the bottom of who stole the steak and wants to find out now.
But of course, we break into a song about the mystery of who stole the steak. We get each person singing, pointing fingers at another person in the classic “whodunnit.” Finally, Helen stops all the noise to let Bitsy know that Bitsy’s dog is the one that ate the steak. Next, we find out that there was sauce on the steak, which would have killed Ambrose, opening the question of who would want to kill Ambrose.
The steak sauce was found in Bitsy’s pocket, causing her to be the main suspect in trying to poison Ambrose. However, Abby refuses to believe that Bitsy would do such a thing. A mix of things happens where Abby convinces Paige to believe that Bitsy didn’t commit the crime. Followed by Ambrose’s girlfriend finally admits to being the one who did it and ultimately settles the case.
As the episode closes, Bitsy apologizes to Abby for accusing her of the crime. As the Tillmans and Abby walk home, Abby says she will look for a new job in the morning, but Paige tells her not to, that she should stay at the job at Bitsy’s restaurant.
