A week after Carla tells Eddie that she's pregnant with his child, Eddie does ask her to marry him. She's excited beyond words. She's even more excited in the fact that Eddie tells her that she no longer has to work since he can support them both. Being the two most superstitious people in the world, they have a lot of superstition obstacles to overcome. With all these superstitions to consider, they figure they have to marry in exactly eight days, or postpone the wedding until 2042. Sam plans on having a reception for them at the bar, Rebecca initially indignant that Sam does so without her authorization, until he suggests she invite her unrequited love and boss, Evan Drake, who is a sports fan, to meet famous goalie Eddie. With seemingly this last hurdle overcome, the wedding seems like it will be a blessed event, that is until Carla and Eddie inadvertently break the biggest superstition of them all: he sees her on their wedding day before the wedding. Carla thinks they're doomed. ... Written by Huggo

Carla's Existence
25 August 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I don't know. While Carla is an outrageous character who adds a lot of insult to injury in this series, I've never enjoyed episodes that feature her. In this one, Eddie Lebec mans up and asks her to marry him. The rest of the episode involves lots of plans for a party after the wedding. But Eddie's mom shows up.
