Kimmy, You’re a Firework! (SPOILERS)


In “Kimmy Has a Birthday!” we finally learned why Kimmy’s not with her family.  Kimmy’s mother left, so all she has is her mother’s second husband and her half-sister.

As always, there were some hilarious lines in “Kimmy Has a Birthday!”  One example was when Kimmy said, “You know what, tonight is more than just a party, Titus,” and then Titus replied, “That’s my favorite sentence ever.”  Another great line was when Kimmy yelled, “No!  Everyone out of my house!” and Lillian replied, “Yeah, you heard her.  This is a house!”

I love how the writers made fun of the lyric, “Do you ever feel like a plastic bag/Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?” from “Firework” by Katy Perry.  Kimmy questioned this lyric as almost all of us have.  “And I’m not sure why you would compare me to a plastic bag,” said Kimmy.  But by the end of the episode, Kimmy admitted that she was experiencing that exact feeling.  She could relate to a plastic bag.  It made the joke even more entertaining.

Apparently Kimmy and Logan are already official, and Logan isn’t that great of a boyfriend.  He made his assistant buy all of his birthday gifts for Kimmy.  I wish we saw a bit more of Kimmy and Logan’s relationship before this episode.  Was it always like this?  Did their relationship develop at all?  Because of this lack of information, I felt absolutely no emotion when this was revealed about Logan and their relationship.
