The Goldbergs Season 9 Episode 8 Recap
The eighth episode, titled ‘A Light Thanksgiving Nosh,’ starts with Beverly making all the necessary preparations to celebrate Thanksgiving. However, Linda Schwartz is supposed to host the event this year, which tugs at Beverly’s insecurities about her position as the hostess of the family. So she tries everything she can to sabotage Linda’s efforts to organize a heartwarming Thanksgiving dinner. First off, she seeks advice from Mr. Glascott, who tells her to host two dinners. Later, Beverly prepares a mouth-watering multiple-course meal for dinner without anyone’s knowledge and ends up raining on Linda’s parade.
Erica is furious at her mother and is willing to do anything to put some sense into her. So, she motivates Linda to take a stand against Beverly. However, when nothing seems to work, Erica begins to address Linda as “mom,” which gets on Beverly’s nerves. Meanwhile, Pop-Pop introduces his new girlfriend, Joyce, to Adam and Barry, who are apprehensive of his decision to associate with a woman. The same goes for Murray, who is repelled watching his father playing the “good guy.” So, he blurts out the truth about the lousy father that Pop-pop essentially is compelling Joyce to walk out.
However, Barry and Adam realize how much Joyce means to their grandfather, so they help him stage a romantic gesture outside her house, ultimately winning her heart. Meanwhile, Beverly and Linda compete in a football game to determine who the better hostess is. Quite unfortunately, Beverly ends up hurting Linda during the game. Beverly ultimately realizes her mistake and apologizes to a couch-ridden Linda. Both of them finally resolve to be kinder to each other.
