A little bit of blackmail never stopped Larry David from trying to find his way.
In the Season 11 finale of Curb your enthusiasm, Larry gives some advice on unwanted marriage, and organizes an event for a hero. But this isn’t the only prank LD has in mind. With Maria Sofia still terrorizing his Hulu series and Irma Kostroski wreaking havoc on his personal life, will Larry succeed in saving his show? and avoid a lawsuit? Read on for a summary of the “Mormon Advantage.”
We start on the set of Larry’s new show, where Maria Sofia keeps forgetting her lines. When the city council repeals the city’s fencing laws, Larry can finally get off the list of the worst actress ever (or he hopes). Soon after, Larry asked Stan to take off his director’s chair so no one would sit in it.
Later, Larry breaks up an argument between Leon and Irma, which Irma threatens to be “him or me!” Larry wants nothing more than to kick Irma to the curb, but he has to get her to repeal the law first. He promises Leon that in just a few days she will be gone.
Larry asks Jeff and Susie if Leon can clash with them in a few days, but Larry has to do something for Susie. She’s throwing a party in honor of retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, but since her kitchen is a mess (thanks to Leon), she’s been approved by Larry to host it at home his.
The next day on set, Larry’s chair was changed, and Of course Everyone around him was looking at him with one eye. Even Ted Danson told him it wasn’t a good idea. “It won’t end well, I promise,” he warned Larry. “No one likes a cheater.”
At the city council meeting, Irma said the five-foot fence law was “overreaching by the government.” Although one council member called it a safety issue, the council agreed to vote on the matter over the next few days. While there, Larry meets a Mormon named Micah, whose wife is on the council. He immediately asked the guy how many wives he had. (The answer is only). Larry wonders how wonderful it would be to spend time with one wife, get bored of her, move on to the next one, etc. Always classy, Larry David!
At the Vindman event, Larry accidentally stepped into the doghouse while trying to avoid an awkward hug from a friend, so he threw his shoes in the trash. Cheryl and Susie take him on a fake mission, and then ask him why he jumped out of his chair on set, which sends Larry into a spiral of Maria Sofia, her father, Irma and everything else under the sun.
Leon and his new girlfriend Mary Ferguson were also present at the event. While they were chatting, Larry saw Micah with another woman. (Hmm…) When the event ended, it was pouring rain outside, so no shoes on Larry grabbed a pair of dry shoes from a stack inside the nearby Holocaust museum, and sped out the door.
Then Irma asked Larry if he told Micah to have a girlfriend. Melinda clearly thinks Larry is to blame for her husband’s new girlfriend, and as a result, they lose their vote to repeal the fence law. He called to apologize to her and promised to make a large donation to her church. He asked her to vote again, and they reached a deal!
Vindman used Larry’s upstairs bathroom and eavesdropped on Larry’s calls with the councilwoman (which he called “bribes”). He said he would record the conversation and send it to Councilman Weinblatt, thus ruining Larry’s plans. He also said that he also knew Larry stole the shoes from the Holocaust museum. I guess it’s never a good thing to see the bad side of a whistleblower.
Irma finds the shoes in question and is horrified to discover them from the museum. She fainted and fell to the ground.
Larry’s next move: Block the audio recording that Vindman dropped at Weinblatt’s house. He persuaded the man’s elderly mother to let him in, and while she was making tea, he rummaged through the documents. Meanwhile, Irma, who is sober and “on the show,” is currently at a bar drinking after discovering her shoe.
Larry finds the document he’s been looking for, and fantasizes about kicking Maria Sofia’s father off the set and firing the awful wannabe actress. Then he imagines Irma moving out of his house once and for all.
But his dream fell apart when Irma failed to show up for her meeting, making the 5-foot fence law a Not abolished. When Larry tried to run away from home in a panic, he dashed away and fell into a pool, which, of course, had no fence around it.
Did Larry get what he deserved? Rating Roadside finale (and season) below, then let us know what you think in the Comments.
