'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' fan recap: Daddy's boy

Season 1 | Episode 10 | “Kimmy’s in a Love Triangle!” | Aired Mar 6, 2015

It is official: Kimmy Schmidt is in a love triangle, and Titus could not be more excited. But Kimmy would rather not talk about the situation because it totally not fun having two dudes fight over her. Girl, please!

It seems that Kimmy cannot avoid the awkward love triangle she is now in, because Logan shows up at her apartment with an “I’m sorry” gift: a live dolphin.


Logan does admit that he did overreact at the party. Logan has never had to deal with obstacles because he is a bit of a “daddy’s boy.” And according to Logan, being a “daddy’s boy” is a thing; it is not. Anyway, Kimmy reassures Logan that he is her boyfriend and Dong is just a friend. Though Logan thinks it would be best if Kimmy cuts all ties with Dong, because he will always want more. Logan also suggests that Kimmy use a British accent, because that always helps when delivering bad news.

After her chat with Logan, Kimmy visits Titus at work. Kimmy finds it fascinating what people who haven’t been kidnapped find scary. Titus is excited because he auditioned to be the alternative evil doctor at work. The role features a monologue. But Titus’ dreams are crushed when he finds out he didn’t get the part. It turns out that Titus can’t pull off “playing straight.” One of Titus’ coworkers gives him the card of a straight coach named M. Le Loup.

Meanwhile, somewhere on the Upper East Side, Jacqueline’s lawyer informs both Xanthippe and Buckley about the Voorhees’ divorce. Xanthippe is extremely POed because this means that she will now have to live with her mother, Helene (Christine Ebersole), in Connecticut—oh, the horror! Of course, Xanthippe blames everything on Kimmy. But in a turn of events, Xanthippe and Kimmy team up to help convince Helene to let her stay in New York City.

Titus meets with M. Le Loup (Dean Norris), who is ready to train Titus. After a couple different exercises, Le Loup informs Titus he will have the ultimate test: an audition for Entourage 2! Titus is very fearful because everyone on that show is “too straight.” On the day of the audition, Titus heads to the bar for a drink first. Rocking a sports jersey, Titus orders a glass of beer.


Titus finally commits to the role of being straight, and almost get in a bar fight because some dude thought Titus was hitting on his girlfriend. Titus is passing for straight .. when out from the shadows comes M. Le Loup, who reveals that Titus passed the test. There is no Entourage 2 audition because there is no Entourage 2! But Titus now has the confidence to play a straight guy.

After work, Kimmy goes to “break up” with Dong. Though once she gets to the restaurant that Dong works and lives at, she finds out that immigration raided the place looking for him. Dong now is jobless and homeless. Unable to break Dong’s heart, Kimmy invites him to stay at her apartment, though she does make it clear that she only wants to be his friend.

Logan calls Kimmy to invite her to meet his parents. Things are getting serious, but Kimmy does not inform Logan that Dong is still in her life.

Xanthippe shows up at Kimmy’s apartment, so the two can begin their mission keep Xanthippe in the city. Xanthippe has her mother show up at Kimmy’s apartment to pick her up. Kimmy and Xanthippe have transformed the apartment into a “crack den.” Titus plays Xanthippe’s black boyfriend, and Dong plays Kimmy’s drug dealer. During the scene, Kimmy has to kiss Dong—and, boom, fireworks. Helene is appalled by what she has seen, and thinks Xanthippe should stay in the city and let her father deal with her. Xanthippe wins!

After kissing Kimmy, Dong officially knows that he can never just be a friend to her. So Dong packs his bags and leaves.

Back at the Voorhees’, Xanthippe is thrilled that her plan with Kimmy worked. Xanthippe actually thanks Kimmy for her help. Though Kimmy soon realizes that maybe Xanthippe would be better off in Connecticut. Xanthippe has awful friends, and she really is an oboe-playing, bird-watching good girl. Kimmy takes Xanthippe’s phone and texts Helene, asking her to come back and take Xanthippe to Connecticut. As Helene drags Xanthippe out of the townhouse, she promises she will be back for Kimmy.

Logan comes to pick up Kimmy to go meet his parents. Logan cannot wait for her to meet his daddy. Kimmy informs Logan that Dong is gone for good. Unable to contain his glee, Logan admits that he was the one who called immigration on Dong. Kimmy is shocked, even after Logan admits that he did it for them (and because his daddy told him to). Kimmy kicks Logan out and tells him there is no such think as a “daddy’s boy.”

Kimmy races to the bus stop to stop Dong from leaving. Yes, the scene is very much a romantic grand gesture, with the Kimmy Schmidt twist. After admitting her feelings for Dong, Kimmy tells him not to worry about immigration, because it took the cops 15 years to find her. Dong is excited that Kimmy chose him, but also thinks the two should get married so immigration will stop looking for him. Say what?!


Season one of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is now streaming on Netflix.
