The former NFL star makes his third appearance on the show Tuesday (Feb. 18). He applies to be Ryan’s (Matthew Perry) temporary assistant while Carrie (Allison Miller) takes some time off. Ryan, prone to flattery as he is, takes Owens’ more-or-less kind words at face value and hires him on the spot, as you can see in the clip at the end of the post.
Never mind that just a couple episodes ago, Owens was helping Mr. K (Brett Gelman) and Steven (John Cho) flip Ryan’s car in order to teach him a lesson. Ryan might want to watch his back, just in case.
Tuesday’s episode also has Ryan accompanying Simone (guest star Piper Perabo) on a meditation retreat, although Ryan has a little trouble uncluttering his mind. Lauren (Laura Benanti), meanwhile, becomes obsessed with finding out which member of the group gave her a bad evaluation.
“Go On” returns from a brief hiatus at 9 p.m. ET Tuesday on NBC. Take a look at Owens and Perry grooving together in this clip:
