Parks and Rec Exclusive First Look: Ron Names the Most Useless Occupations, Reveals His Will

This Thursday on Parks and Recreation (NBC, 8/7c), Ben’s preparation of his own will and testament gets Ron Swanson, of all people, pondering mortality — or at least how the government might profit from his ultimate passing.

In this first look from the episode, Ben interrupts Ron’s compound bow maintenance to ask if he’ll be a witness to his and Leslie’s will, prompting Ron to riff on lawyers and other useless occupations. Ron also whips out his own will, which he wrote at age 8 and keeps in his wallet. (Who do you predict his lone beneficiary is?)

Elsewhere in the half-hour: Leslie tries to keep a minor scandal from getting blown out of proportion, while Tom woos a possible new love interest, played by Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany.

    That’s not a crossbow but actually a compound bow…

      Huh. I Googled the heck out of it before posting, but the shopping sites I found called it just a “crossbow.”

      • JB Smooove says:

        A crossbow looks like a bow on its side, attached to a gun like device. Sam is correct, its a compound bow. THE GOOGLES LIED TO YOU!
