Suburgatory aired its latest episode “Halloween” Wednesday at 8:30PM on ABC 7 in Queens. What happened when Tessa dressed just like the girl who lived in the house before the Altmans—and who apparently died?
Tessa and George were taking advantage of the suburbs and decorating for Halloween—something that wasn’t really part of their life in the city. However, Noah informed them they had to get everything approved by the neighborhood association. Tessa found a box belonging to Misty and dressed as a tacky suburban girl—and “bumped it.” Lisa told her she was dressed just like Misty and she stood at her old locker. Lisa said it was weird because of what happened to Misty. Wolfe told Tessa Misty died.
George talked to Dallas about his decorations, but she told him they didn’t want to scare their children after working so hard at protecting them. Lisa explained that Misty was her best friend until she got LASIK surgery and completely changed. Lisa was hurt and angry and wanted her to disappear forever. One day, she did. Lisa was worried because Tessa “bumped it” and is “throwing around lots of ‘tude” like Misty did. She thought Misty’s spirit was trying to possess her.
Dallas stopped by George’s, where he surprised her with a skeleton. He was trying to show her the fun of Halloween being scary. It didn’t work. Meanwhile, Tessa was freaked out about sleeping in a dead girl’s room. George joined her, unable to sleep as well, and told her Halloween was going to suck. She asked him about the people who lived in the house before them, but he hadn’t heard anything.
George was scared when Dallas snuck up on him when he was looking for her, and she had fun doing it. She didn’t like being scared though, and George insisted she give Halloween another try. Tessa talked to Dalia to find out what happened to Misty, while Lisa refused to lose another friend to the popular group. George and Dallas sat down to watch a scary movie, and she got him with a hand in the popcorn bowl. Meanwhile, Tessa came home to find Lisa and Malik ready to perform an exorcism. After the movie, George heard someone at the door and dressed up to answer it. It turned out to be Dallas’ husband, and he knocked George out.
When George woke up, Steven was trying to figure out if they had a break-in, and then focused on the fact that he was wearing shoes. Tessa insisted she wasn’t possessed, but they didn’t believe her. When someone kept ringing the bell, Tessa wanted to answer the trick-or-treaters, but then the person announced their name: Misty.
George witnessed the awkward reunion and went to get his stuff. Tessa let Misty into the house. She was obviously not dead. Her parents said she went to “a better place,” which turned out to be a remedial school in New Jersey. To Wolfe, she was dead because she did poorly on standardized tests. She stole Tessa’s nail polish, and Tessa noted that her cat clock was growing on her just like the suburbs. After one last scare, George left Dallas’ and joined Tessa on their front yard—which was completely decorated. They scared away trick-or-treaters with their guillotine.
