The adorable couple is back in the new episode of “Mike & Molly” Season 5 Premiere “The Book of Molly,” which aired last Dec. 8, 2014 at 8:30 p.m. on CBS. In this episode, Molly returns with the best news of her life, and Mike struggles with Molly’s extravagant way of saying she loves him.
The episode kicks off with Molly receiving the invitation from a prestigious writing workshop program last season. Mike was disappointed with Molly not sharing her plans with him because she had to stay in Iowa for eight weeks. After their serious talk, Mike finally let Molly leave for several weeks to reach her dream of being a famous writer.
Eight weeks have passed, and Mike is waiting anxiously like a dog near the window. Finally, Molly arrives and greets everyone gathered in the living room.
She shares her experiences in Iowa, which was a disaster at first because of pretentious people. She started writing a story about two people with no morals, just focusing on satisfying their carnal desires. She drops the bomb by saying a producer bought her book. She shows the check to everyone.
Before they sleep, Mike praises Molly for finally reaching her dreams. He is more than happy that Molly earned a huge amount of money from a single book.
Victoria and Joyce interrupt Molly while writing. They find the book too intriguing and sexual. Joyce suggests laminating the pages so it can be read in the bath tub. Molly actually considers it. She suddenly thinks about shopping so she invites Victoria and Joyce to come with her. When Joyce asks Molly who she wants to portray as the main character, she wants Renee Zellweger.
Mike is eating with Carl in their usual restaurant when somebody’s car is beeping outside nonstop. He gets surprised when it is just Molly, Victoria and Joyce. Molly says the new car is her gift for Mike for being so supportive. Mike is not happy with it for he thinks his old Mitsubishi can still function well. He says Molly should have used the money for paying their debt. He demands Molly to take it back. The couple starts arguing until Molly walks out, screaming that she will keep succeeding and buying expensive stuff.
In the garage, Mike is fixing his car when Molly arrives with a paper bag. She gives him a cheaper gift — tube socks. Mike is genuinely happy about it. He tells her straight that he did not like her buying the car without telling him. He feels inferior when Molly spends big money for him. Molly apologizes and promises to return the car immediately.
Mike gets inside his car to follow Molly’s. Molly challenges him to a race. When Mike accelerates his car, the hood suddenly explodes.
Is Mike going to change his mind about Molly’s gift? Catch the next episode on Dec. 12, 2014.
