That’s the impression we get from some of the photos CBS has posted of the episode. The story has Walden planning a big night for his girlfriend Zoey’s (Sophie Winkleman) birthday. But we’re guessing things go awry — so much so that Michael Bolton, playing himself, has to bring a sloshed Walden home to Alan (Jon Cryer).
It’s a guest star-heavy episode that also features the returns of Mimi Rogers (seen below with Winkleman) as Walden’s mom and Judy Greer as his ex-wife.
Brit Morgan (“True Blood”) also guests as a woman Walden meets at a bar, to Alan’s continuing chagrin.
And yes, the show is following through on Jake’s (Angus T. Jones) decision to join the Army at the end of last season. So expect a lot of him Skyping with Alan over the course of the season.
“Two and a Half Men” premieres in its new timeslot, 8:30 p.m. ET Thursdays, on Sept. 27.
