Council of Dads Episode 1 Recap:
The episode starts by introducing us to Scott and Robin’s large Georgia family. Scott’s daughter by another woman, Luly, is waiting to hear about an internship in New York City, Theo, one of the sons, wants to get his driver’s license, JJ wants to try rope swinging into the lake, before first grade, and Charlotte, the adopted daughter, is obsessed with Anne Frank.
Soon Scott’s life changes, as he receives news about aggressive cancer in one of his legs. Throughout the episode, we are told more about the children, including Luly, who works at a crab shack. We also meet Scott’s friend, one of whom went to culinary school, and another, who is in AA, with Scott acting as the sponsor.
With his future uncertain, Scott drops some words of wisdom to his kids, which initially irks Robin. She’s also unwilling to go with his ‘council of dads’ idea. However, she accidentally appoints herself as the head of this council. The family is hit with two big news. Firstly, Robin is pregnant again and has a daughter named Hope. Secondly, Scott’s cancer is back, and likely to win.
The scene cuts to his funeral, and we see the council of dads in action. They include Oliver (Robin’s colleague and a surgeon), Anthony (from the culinary school) and Larry (from AA). Their tasks include finding Charlotte, who’s hiding, and setting straight a grandmother, who insists on calling JJ a girl, though the child identifies as a boy.
Fast forwarding, the episode ends with Luly marrying Evan, with whom she used to work at the crab shack. We see Robin is worried about replacing Scott as the ‘fun parent’, but Oliver assures her it’ll be okay. Undoubtedly, the upcoming episodes will see how well this council of dads perform.
