John (Goran Visnjic) senses that something is amiss with Molly (Halle Berry), but that doesn't necessarily mean she's going to tell him what it is, in the new episode "Wish You Were Here." She's not sure she's ready to inform him about her pregnancy, nor for the inevitable questions that would follow. The couple also has to deal with the concerns of other parents after Ethan (Pierce Gagnon) spends his first day at school.
Sue (Eden Sher) is looking forward to the new school year now that Axl (Charlie McDermott) won't be around to make her life miserable. The same can't be said for Brick (Atticus Shaffer), who's dreading middle school because of bathroom bullying. Frankie (Patricia Heaton) is jealous when she learns Axl is returning Mike's (Neil Flynn) texts but ignoring hers in "Change in the Air."
"The Ape Who Went to College" is not just the catchy title of this new episode, it's also the fact when it comes to the hour's subject. That would be Chantek, who was treated just like a human youngster at an American university during the 1970s and 1980s. Educated in sign language at the time, the orangutan now resides among his own at Zoo Atlanta, though his reassimilation wasn't exactly easy.
