'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' fan recap: Welcome to Durnsville

Season 1 | Episode 12 | “Kimmy Goes to Court!” | Aired Mar 6, 2015

Kimmy Schmidt takes a moment to collect her thoughts before the bus enters the city limits of Durnsville, Indiana. As soon as Kimmy steps off the bus, she’s hit in the face with her past. Cyndee and Randy pick up Kimmy and Titus, and the group heads off to the courthouse. Once at the courthouse, the press surrounds Kimmy—she’s like the Paul McCartney of the mole women. Though Kimmy may not be a fan of the cameras, Titus is soaking up the spotlight.

Sister Kimmy takes the stand and is questioned by Reverend Rick.

Reverend Rick makes the people and jury in the courtroom believe that Kimmy is a Durnsville traitor who hates her hometown, which she proved by moving to New York City. Reverend Rick also admits that when he “kidnapped” Kimmy, she was running away from home … so was it really kidnapping? Let’s just say that Kimmy was an awful witness and disappointed Cyndee, Donna Maria, Randy, and her lawyers.

Meanwhile, Titus loves his current status as Kimmy’s spokesperson. Though Titus receives advance from Mr. Bankston—aka the dude from the theme song—that there is a dark side to fame.

Kimmy takes the stand for a second time. Kimmy insists that she never believed that the apocalypse really happened. With that statement, Reverend Rick asks the room to join him in a flashback. We learn that while in the bunker, Reverend Rick offered Kimmy a chance to send Cyndee out into the wasteland. Kimmy was not willing to risk Cyndee’s life—she couldn’t be absolutely sure that she was right—and admitted defeat to Reverend Rick. Back in current time, Cyndee is POd that she could have had a normal life—seven years ago!

After a confidence-building session, Kimmy decides that she is going to save the day. Kimmy has a plan and needs her fellow mole women to help her out. Kimmy crashes Cyndee’s bachelorette party and convinces the women to join her in returning to the bunker to search for evidence against Reverend Rick. Thanks to Randy’s help, the ladies enter the bunker for the first time since being they were rescued. The mole women head to Reverend Rick’s private quarters to search for some evidence. Randy acts as a lookout above ground, but soon gets distracted by a cat that climbs up a tree.

Titus continues his media tour by agreeing to do a live interview with a news station out of Indianapolis—the big time, baby! Titus is getting camera ready and doing some vocal warm-ups when the interview goes live. Titus ends up making a complete ass of himself, screaming that he wants to start over, that he wants to be a baby again, and then he begins to fart.

Yep, it was not pretty—but oh so entertaining to watch! The next day, the internet debuts a beautiful remix of Titus’s interview. Titus is a viral star.

Meanwhile, Kimmy and the other mole women search the bunker for evidence against Reverend Rick. While in his private quarters Kimmy discovers a safe … what is in the safe?!?

Kimmy Schmidt cliffhanger!

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