'Young & Hungry' recap: Oh, so very awkward

Season 1 | Episode 4 | “Young and Pregnant” | Aired July 17, 2014

At the end of this week’s episode of Young & Hungry, Gabi exclaims that her conversation with her boss, Josh, is “so awkward.” That is truly an understatement. The whole episode was so very, very awkward, which provided for lots of comedy.

So how did we get here? It all started when Gabi proclaimed her excitement for needing to buy new bras because she went up a cup size. Now, any girl knows that that is basically impossible once you’re past the age of about 16, so despite being initially very exciting, bigger boobs had to mean that something was very off.  After doing a few quick calculations in her head, Gabi was on the phone begging her roommate, Sofia, to bring her a pregnancy test. Ignoring the fact that Gabi slept with Josh probably less than a month ago, and there’s no way her boobs would already be getting bigger, it’s understandable that she would be freaking out about any little hint that she might be pregnant. Bigger boobs would probably be enough to send her over the edge.

But things get even worse for Gabi when Josh’s housekeeper, Yolanda, finds the box for the pregnancy test in the trash, thus proving that Gabi’s second-worst mistake at Josh’s house was taking the test in his bathroom instead of just waiting to take it when she got home later that night. Everyone’s immediate thought is to assume that the test belonged to Josh’s fiancée, Caroline. This is when things go from bad for Gabi to uncomfortable for everyone.

Josh overhears Caroline talking about a horse she bought for him, and mistakes the words as her saying she is pregnant and planning on telling Josh and all of her friends at a fancy tea party later that night. So Josh thinks that Caroline is pregnant because of a test that Gabi took at his house. It’s a classic sitcom misunderstanding, but this time the misunderstanding leads to more than comedy. It leads to Caroline possibly finding out about Gabi and Josh and potentially ruining their relationship forever, not to mention leading to Gabi losing her dream job.

You would think that things would always be awkward between Gabi and Josh, considering what happened between them on the first night they met. But now things are brought to an awkward apex, and I’m not sure where we can go from here.

The episode itself centers around Gabi’s pregnancy scare, but the biggest theme is the fact that Gabi and Josh are still trying to desperately not let Caroline know about their fling. And it’s becoming clear that that isn’t going to last much longer.

Next week’s episode looks to focus more on the Gabi/Josh/Caroline love triangle, all while seeing Gabi dive into the dating pool again. It will guest-star Nick Roux, who previously appeared on the ABC Family show Jane by Design.

Young & Hungry airs Wednesdays at 8/7C on ABC Family.
