??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????The Valentine’s Day episode of ABC’s Suburgatory (airing Wednesday at 9:30/8:30c) will prove to be more frightening than romantic for some of Chatswin’s lovers.

On top of a horrofic Blowtox (yes, that’s Botox plus Blowfish) procedure-gone-wrong for one character, “Valentine’s Day becomes a test,” previews Annie Weisman, who penned the half-hour. “Is George going to do the extravagant Valentine’s that Dallas expects? And then for Tessa [and Ryan], it becomes this unexpected test of which one of them is deeper and more soulful.”

Below, the cast kisses and tells about how the denizens of Suburgatory are celebrating the holiday. Plus, watch Tessa’s reaction to Dallas’ strange new face!

DALLAS/GEORGE | “They start out with really good intentions,” says Cheryl Hines of the couple’s first Valentine’s Day together. “At least Dallas is super excited about it. And George is really trying” with a super fancy 18-course meal prepared by Top Chef alum Michael Voltaggio as Chef Julio. “I couldn’t have written it better myself,” the culinary master raves of his character’s absurd dishes — including a sliver of pig heart drizzled in its own blood. “I’m like, ‘This is hilarious.’ It’s what I do, but taken to an extreme level.” Unfortunately for George, the elaborate dinner plans fall apart because Dallas isn’t ready to face the world following her Blowtox incident, Hines teases. How bad does she look? Well, her new visage was created by a special prosthetic team. “Carly [Chaikin, who plays Dalia] kept saying, ‘I feel like I want to cry every time I see you,’” shares Hines. So poor George will be eating for two while his girlfriend hides in the shadows, under burlap and any other which way she can. “[Valentine's Day is] a bit of a disaster,” adds Hines. “It started out on the right foot and ended up in barf.”

RYAN/TESSA | The newbie couple’s plans involve an art house film that Tessa wants to see and Ryan is really not interested in. But because he’s a good boyfriend – and she promises him popcorn and candy – he agrees to skip a rager for the movie. “While we’re watching it, she’s realizing how horrible and horrid this film is,” previews Ryan’s portrayer, Parker Young. “She looks over, feeling so bad for me because I must be absolutely dying and I’ve got this cringe on my face.” But it turns out the football jock is deeply engrossed in what’s happening on screen. “I’m so moved and I love this film so much and it’s changed my life,” says Young of Ryan’s reaction. “Me and Tessa get into a fight over this because she hated this film, something that I really loved and took to heart. I can’t understand how somebody that I love cannot love the same thing as me.”

THE SHAYS | Dallas and George aren’t the only parental units enjoying some romance. But before Sheila and Fred can have their sultry tango time together, they have to contend with some unexpected competition from guest star Mary Kay Place. “Sheila’s in a little bit of a battle with her mom (Place) over my attentions in some warped ways,” reveal Chris Parnell. Hmm, sound like anybody else you know in the Shay household? That brings us to…

LISA/MALIK | Is Valentine’s Day the perfect holiday to woo back the one you lost? Lisa’s ex is about to find out. “Malik and I are really at the crescendo of our attempts to reunite,” teases Allie Grant. “No stone goes unturned in his attempt to get us back together. It ends as it should.”

  • I’m really over Dallas and George. That relationships could end at any time, and I wouldn’t bat an eye.
    Ryan and Tessa is where it’s at. Also, the Shays are funny as hell.

    • This. Already bored with the show, I missed the memo where they even got together in the first place. But in catching up, I was happy to see that they did without making us wait five years which would certainly be bad for a sitcom. Still, I can’t help but think she’s hiding because of more “work” done behind the scenes, she already looks scary as hell, a caricature for sure, in true comic book style, sorry but she was that from the start of this show. Scary skinny plus mucho gunko in the face is never a nice looking combination. She was pretty when she was on Larry David’s show.

  • Did you know Cupid’s Bow has lent its name to a part of the anatomy thanks to William Shakespeare. Can you guess which one? No, not the heart, the delicate border of the upper lip. The double curve of a human upper lip has come to be called Cupid’s Bow, after the Roman god of erotic love. Shakespeare made this association in his famous epic poem Venus and Adonis. Now you have something to Google for V-Day!

  • Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
    video to make your point. You definitely know what youre
    talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  • I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours these days, yet I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It’s pretty value enough
    for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the net
    can be a lot more useful than ever before.
