Two episodes of “Bunheads” down and already one character down.
So what’s going to happen to Michelle? Nothing as of yet, with Fanny aggressively going about planning his memorial service. Luckily, Fanny has some friends to help – and maybe keep her under control. An odd mix indeed, but the ladies kept up the humor in this episode.
“I don’t do funerals. There’s no celebration,” Fanny said. “Buddhists believe everyone comes back.” Which translates to party. But what starts out as a traditional Buddhist ceremony slowly turns into a circus – Barnum & Bailey’s tent included.
Michelle thinks Hubbell’s death was her fault, and seeks solace in Fanny’s dance studio…and the bar.
Since Fanny’s in full grief mode, no one’s around to teach the girls, who Boo makes stay in the studio, just in case their teacher shows up. When Fanny doesn’t come around, Shae takes it upon herself to go and find her, which she does, sad and alone. She also finds Michelle, sad and alone, and tells her that someone needs to act.
So act Michelle does. No more tent. No more plane. No more excessive amount of lilies. No sitar. No more 500 guests. Just candles, a whole lot of tulle, and a dance for Fanny.
Fanny seems to warm back up to Michelle, but then comes the news that Hubbell has left everything to her.
