'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: Season 6 Episode 12


It’s Always Reviewed in PhiladelphiaIt's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

Episode 12:  Dee Gives Birth

(Spoiler alert)

In the twelfth episode, Dee is finally going to have her baby. Sunny fans already know that in real life, actress Kaitlin Olson who plays Dee is married to Rob McElhenney who plays Mac. She was actually pregnant with their son, Axel Lee, who makes a brief cameo at the end.

And yes, we do find out who the father is. I won’t give it away, but it is a bit of a surprise. It is also a member of the supporting cast we have seen before. Part of the plot is, while Dennis tries to take care of the irresponsible Dee at the hospital, the rest of the gang tries to determine who the father is.

It’s a return of all of Dee’s horrible boyfriends and guys she’s banged. Mac soon realizes that Dee is getting way more action than he is. Charlie realizes that Dee really browbeats some guys into having sex with her. Highlights include a return of Frank’s “bridge buddies”, who show up at a fake party the gang holds to lure the boyfriends back and question them.

Always funny, but it was going to be hard to top last week’s stellar show. There’s a bit of a sappy moment with the baby at the end. If I was a Sunny character, I’d probably say, “What the Hell, dude? This isn’t funny. Throw a pie or something. Or better yet, drop the baby!” But hey, the gang is still cool, they deserve a moment.

We’ll be rating episodes according to the Sunny scale. 1 is Dee, 2 is Frank, 3 is Charlie, 4 is Mac and 5 is a Dennis.

I give this show a Charlie. Solid, but not spectacular. What you have to stay tuned for is the season finale of The League. Two episode back to back that were both a Dennis plus. And we find out who wins. Awesome.
