After Sunday’s last-minute replacement episode, it’s nice for us Happy Endings fans to be treated with a stellar installment of their favorite characters in ‘The Ex-Factor’. Every single member of the gang got something hilarious to do this week, with Brad and Jane fighting over their exes, Penny mingling with Pete’s friendship group, and Max, Alex and Dave getting way too involved with Max’s awesome new roommate.
Let’s start with Brad and Jane, who are almost always the most substantial and moving part of the show, despite both being fabulously gifted comedians. Because they’re the best and most open married couple on TV, they have a rule that either one of them can meet an ex-partner for dinner should they be in town. This means that Jane’s former flame, Ryan, is barging into their lives for a short spell, and Brad is none too pleased to find out that Ryan is actually a woman.
