"Happy Endings" (Wed., 9:30 p.m. EST on ABC) introduced a rather unusual annual tradition the gang has been enjoying for years: Brad and Jane's "Spring Smackdown." The normally-awesome couple gets in one huge fight per winter, and the gang takes the annual event as a sign that spring is just around the corner.
The problem this year was that Brad and Jane simply weren't fighting. Every time the gang thought something was going to set them off, they instead managed to brush it off like it was no big thing. But realizing that this was something their friends needed, Brad and Jane decided to fake the sixth "Spring Smackdown" for their benefit.
But the fake fight, and fake getting away from one another into the arms of their friends, just didn't sit right with anyone. It still didn't feel like spring was coming. Luckily, an open patio door led to a real fight. But this time, rather than simply sitting back and enjoying the fight, the gang came together to instead helped the couple make up instead. Maybe they'd all grown up a little bit this year.
Special shout-out to "Bear Max." It was a bit abrupt, and seemingly out of character considering he'd just recently started a serious relationship that was developing nicely, but it was so funny it was almost forgivable. For the transformation into Pooh Bear alone, just go with it for the laughs.
