Because Frank left a comment, I now have to reveal my super soap opera twist. I know Frank pretty well, and am very sure he is proud of the fact that there is one more piece of useless content on the Internet because of his comment. (I’m kidding of course.)
So, when we last left off the Two and a Half Men cast was having fun with Ashton K. as Judith’s new love, Herb and Alan living in the beach house in Malibu, and we added Judith’s daughter to the cast. The daughter is the key to this twisty turning plot.
The writers have kept us in suspense about who is the baby daddy of the daughter. It could be Alan or it could be Herb. There have been many times we almost found out the truth, but it remains a mystery. For 2-3 seasons they have kept us in suspense (if they are any good and smart). Now the truth is about to come out.
Someone, it does not matter who decides to get DNA samples and do a test. I think the best character would be Evelyn, Alan and Charlie’s mother. It is just the sort of thing she would do. The testing is a big secret, so the samples must be taken without the victims (Alan and Herb) knowing anything is going on. Evelyn can get Jake to help, for more fun.
The secret is, of course, not a secret. Everyone knows. They then start to swap samples. By the end, no one is exactly sure which sample is the true one. Lots of sneaking around and almost getting caught physical comedy. Really, it writes itself.
Now, lets add the twist. The last switcher is the daughter. She swaps out the sample she believes is her father, Alan’s, for Ashton’s DNA sample. It is a bitter sweet moment, as she is trying to keep both her fathers happy, by keeping the true biological father secret. That is the season ending cliff hanger.
The super soap twist is next, and I think you can see it coming from a mile away. In the season premiere, we get the results. The real father is… Ashton K. (whatever they name his character). Only the daughter knows of course. Now the whole plot starts to unwind. We review each and every switch and swap. The truth all comes out. Finally, Alan and his daughter have a moment alone. He thinks he is the father, Herb is OK with it. She knows the truth. Does she tell him? Does she tell Ashton’s character?
Hey, they have to write something for themselves. I am not doing someone else’s job for free.
