Season 1 of "2 Broke Girls" ended with an abrupt "Sopranos"-style cliffhanger. The aspiring bakers cornered Martha Stewart at a gala. The marketing maven sampled a cupcake and loved it. Was Martha being gracious or did the duo make a powerful business connection? Considering the title of the show and state of the fledgling business, it is probably the former.
With Caroline's incessant encouragement, Max's baking skills and confidence improved. She quit her nanny job to spend more time working on the cupcake business. Later, she returned to duty because she needed Peach's help to bring Chestnut home to Caroline. Max and Johnny's potential love story ended during an awkward encounter at the diner. He announced he was successful, engaged, and moving to Manhattan.
Except for an occasional disappointment, cheerful Caroline handled her new life pretty well. She adopted little tricks, like stealing napkins and participating in paid drug trials, to stretch her budget. She almost got to see her beloved father, but Max accidentally caused a prison riot. According to spoilers, Steven Weber will play the Bernie Madoff-like criminal and appear in the Season 2 premiere.
Oleg and Sophie developed a strange relationship. It was a love connection for the crass cook, but Sophie wanted to keep it casual. Since she wanted to date a successful businessperson like herself, Oleg started a car service to impress her. The gesture seemed to help.
"2 Broke Girls" moves to a new time slot on Monday night. Tune in Sept. 24 to meet Caroline's incarcerated dad and see if the girls are any closer to reaching their goal.
