“Welcome to Sweden” Season 1 Episode 8 “Separate Lives” and Episode 9 “Home” will air on Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014, from 9:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on NBC. This will be the show’s season finale, so read on for some hints about what will happen in the episodes. Before anything else though, here’s a quick recap from last week.
Previously in “Parents,” Wayne and Nancy, Bruce’s dad and mom, arrived to Sweden for short visit. They met Emma’s family and had lunch together, including Emma’s weird uncle. But Wayne, ever the traditional mid-Westerner, ended up offending his hosts and the rest of the family because of his conservative views on religion and marriage. Nancy, meanwhile, was drawn to Viveka’s secret stash of mushrooms and was high for most of lunch.
Bruce made it clear to his father that he made the right choice of moving to Sweden for love. While Wayne wasn’t thrilled about this, he at least respected his son’s decision.
Also in this episode, the couple had a pregnancy scare, but thank goodness it was a false alarm!
In the second episode entitled “Homesick,” wanting to get Bruce back to work for her, Amy Poehler, Bruce’s celebrity client, sent Aubrey Plaza to Sweden to bring Bruce back to America. Bruce, meanwhile, came up with a good idea of becoming a money manager for Swedish celebrities. He tried to land clients, but as there are no celebrities in Sweden, at least according to Amy Poehler, Bruce wasn’t able to have much success with this job.
Meanwhile, Viveka thought Bruce was depressed and sought a moment with him. Bruce revealed that he was just trying to immerse being Swedish, which is probably why he’s behaving differently. But Viveka, and even Emma, advised him to just be himself.
When Bruce told Emma that Amy offered him a huge salary if he would only return to work for her, his girlfriend was more than thrilled at the prospect.
