A to Z” Season 1 Episode 4 “D is for Debbie” will air on Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014, at 9:30 p.m. on NBC. There’s death in Zelda’s family. How will the new couple deal with this? Find out the details below. But before that, we’ll take a step back to review the events from last week. Read on.

Previously, in “C is for Curiouser and Curiouser” (air date: Oct. 16, 2014), Andrew (Ben Feldman) and Zelda (Cristin Milioti) thought that it wasn’t important they knew so little about each other when they first met. Their relationship is fine the way it started. But as Stephie (Lenora Crichclow) pointed out, searching and looking into their partner's online profiles first was the way things were done these days. So out of curiosity, Zelda did just that one time and learned that Andrew was held by the police ten years ago for a minor violation.

Andrew, on the hand, had more restraint. But when a co-worker suggested that perhaps she was hiding something, he started snooping for information about Zelda too. He didn’t find any, though, and he thought that this was a closed case. But Zelda dropped the bomb on him when she said that she used to be married. Not to worry, it was only so that her ex-husband could retain his citizenship. Their relationship was purely platonic.

But Andrew dug the rabbit hole further to find out more about Zelda’s “husband” and later ended up stalking him. Incidentally, at that exact moment, Zelda was to meet with her former husband, which really surprised and upset Andrew that he almost got into another incident with the police.

Fortunately, Zelda was able to straighten this out with the cops, and she also clarified everything to Andrew. She also revealed that the reason why she was afraid to talk about her past marriage was because she knew how much Andrew valued its sanctity. But, she admitted, that she may be growing less cynical about marriage too.

The episode also featured the boss lady Lydia's (Christina Kirk) obsession with finding out what her staff at Wallflower thought of her, and  there, she learned that their codename for her was Big Bird. 

Spoiler Alert: “A to Z” Season 1 Episode 4 “D is for Debbie” airs on Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014, at 9:30 p.m. at NBC.

When Zelda’s Aunt Debbie dies unexpectedly, she’s faced with a little dilemma: she doesn’t know whether to have Andrew join her at the funeral. Andrew is also in a bind, as he doesn’t know whether it would be right to ask Zelda if he could be with her. He wants to because he'd like to support her in her grief. But how serious should a relationship be before couples attend family functions?

On the flipside to this episode, Stu and Stephie are actually at the funeral, and they try to outdo each other for the attention of a musician. At Wallflower, Big Bird is cooking something up and targets some people at her workplace.

The series will have Tyler Ward as guest, as well as Parvesh Cheena and Hong Chau as semi-regulars. Katey Sagal is also part of the show as narrator.
