But then Tutu shows up and Bridgette pretty much tells her off. Like, completely disowns her and then the segment ends like most of them do – with someone getting hit by a hearse.
Groundhog Father’s Day – Part 3 and 4: Rafi, Nelson, Tutu, Mo, Bridgette
In parts 3 and 4, it seems, though Bridgette never lets us in to know if she remembers previous loops, she is learning something. Part 3 deals with Bridgette heading to Nelson’s to find Larry’s Panda and with Rafi there, things get volatile and Nelson tries to act as mediator.
Wait, so, this is literally just a rip-off of fucking Groundhogs Day?
Problem is, Bridgette is still heated and Rafi is a sensitive guy.
He tries to admit fault with the baptism thing and says he is trying to change, but Bridge isn’t listening. All she sees is a guy who can’t be held responsible to do things for their son
<because he got the kid baptized?
and keeps messing up. And while Nelson tries to qualm things, it is way beyond what training session she did. These problems run deep.
But it doesn’t end there. Next thing you know, Bridgette’s aunt Mo is calling her because Tutu is drunk, at their parents’ gravesite and this is when things get good.
For, in my mind, a lot of the stuff in part 1 was nonsense, part two gave us some insight into Eliza’s relationship with her family, and what really matters in part 3 is this graveyard scene. In it, we learn Tutu and Mo’s dad was a rapist who was in jail and Tutu’s mom was a nasty woman.
The kind in which Tutu literally pisses on her grave because that is how horrible of a mom she is.
………………………………………. "Tutu" is a nigger, isn't it?
Oh, its Rosie O'Donnel. Close enough.
Then, to top it off, she has a sort of Frankie moment, from Better Things, in which she implies it is an endless cycle in their family. Not the whole rapist thing, not that. More so kids hating their mothers and likely pissing on their grave. Something she did to her mom, what she expects Bridge to do to her, and Larry to do to Bridge when she is dead. Yet, Bridgette makes a pledge to end that. First by noting she loves Larry and will show it to him, to the point it never comes to that. The second thing she does is forgive Tutu. An outright, blanket forgiveness for whatever she did or didn’t do. And then a hearse comes.
Leaving what, seemingly, will be the story which carries over into the future. One in which Bridgette sets aside her feeling about the baptism, Tutu’s need for the Father’s days for Mothers, and just lets them enjoy Larry, her company as well, and just be a family. Oh, and we learn Joe has been sitting on Panda this whole time.
People, if you can call them that, actually watch this.
