The episode saw Mike (Billy Gardell) dealing with the aftermath of his mother, Peggy (Rondi Reed), breaking up with his boss, Captain Murphy (Gerald McRaney), as a tornado headed for Chicago. With disaster looming, Mike revealed to Molly (Melissa McCarthy) that he secretly went into business with stepfather-in-law Vince (Louis Mustillo) in case they needed extra money for in vitro fertilization treatments. Of course that didn’t turn out very well: the ostriches Mike and Vince bought wound up getting loose in the storm. And Murphy showed up at Peggy’s door to declare they’re not over yet.
Otherwise it was a rather quiet finale, with no major cliffhanger or standout event to keep fans buzzing during what will be an unusually extended hiatus. While Season 4 of “Mike & Molly” is officially a go, the show doesn’t yet have a spot on CBS’ 2013-14 schedule.
