“Money Candy” is a funny episode, but the apparent lack of focus on the central storylines keeps the series back.

We recap the Apple TV+ series Central Park season 3, episode 10 recap, “Money Candy,” which contains spoilers.

Season 3, episode 9 of Central Park swiftly moved back to honing in on Paige writing her book, which led to one of the better episodes of the season. It was an incredibly fun episode that provided a fun twisted look inside the mind of Paige. As we reach the season’s final stretch, will we see more about The Mayor? Will Bitsy win him over? and what’s ahead for Central Park? Let’s dive in.

Central Park season 3, episode 10 recap

The episode begins with Cole (Tituss Burgess) and Molly (Emmy Raver-Lampman) dancing upstairs while watching a music video of Money Candy. The duo is terrible dancers, and while they are dancing, Paige (Kathryn Hahn) and Owen (Leslie Odom Jr.) are listening, awaiting the noise of one of them getting hurt. Owen comes up with the idea of buying the kids tickets to the Money Candy concert for the kids. While Paige says they are expensive, Owen makes a case that they have been super busy, and it would make them the best parents ever.

Abby arrives at the house to ask to spend time, and she hears the kids are listening to Money Candy and goes to hang out with them. Paige realizes she will have to buy three tickets now. Next, Bitsy (Stanley Tucci) and Helen (Daveed Diggs) are hanging out when her dog Champagne ends up breaking a plant, and she freaks out because the plant almost landed on the dog.

We move to the concert line, where Paige and Owen discuss how long it is, and Owen throws down some bad dad jokes. They also realize that the kids have mentioned Money Candy plenty of times around the house but never pay attention. They learn the entire time they were in a knockoff merch line and that they should’ve bought tickets four months ago. As they try to buy some merch, but it is super expensive.

Back to Bitsy and Helen, the former decides that she wants another Champagne (dog), and when Helen suggests that she can get her one, Bitsy says she will clone her dog. Abby’s roommate calls her to find out that one of the Money Candy members is at their house, causing them all to freak out. Owen comes up with the idea of trying to hunt down Money Candy to let the kids meet them and become the best parent ever.

The five of them explore the city from place to place to see if they can find them. But, unfortunately, from pizza shops to hotels, they are not having any success. After being thrown out of the hotel, they take to social media. Finally, Owen realizes that the reflection in one of the bandmate’s glasses is in the park.

We move to the cloning place with Helen and Bitsy. Helen is 100% against this idea, but the doctor-ish is pitching Bitsy, and she is ALL IN. Well, for the first time in the episode, we break into a song where Helen is trying to let Bitsy know how terrible of an idea this cloning of her dog is. I love Daveed Diggs. However, the song isn’t successful because Bitsy tells the lady she wants to clone the dog as soon as it ends. As it is about to begin, Bitsy has a last-minute change of heart.

Central Park season 3, episode 10 ending

Owen decides to send his team to the park to help find Money Candy. They end up riding around the park, and BOOM, they found them. In the middle of the park, Owen gets a call that someone has broken into their house. Owen and Paige show up, but Paige isn’t nervous about going in to find out who is in their home. Well, come to find out, Money Candy was in their house because they needed to use the restroom.

Although Money Candy wants to make their fans happy, they tell Owen and Paige they can’t break the rules. The two members of the band say they need Owen’s help to make it through the park unnoticed to make it to the venue in time for the concert. Because they were helpful, the group handed them tickets to the show tonight. Then, of course, it breaks into Owen and Paige singing about how it all went down. I love this show sometimes, even though it lacks any focus on certain storylines.
