Warning: Stop right there if you have yet to watch the Mike & Molly series finale. This is your one and only warning.
Mike & Molly came to an end on Monday as the eponymous duo welcomed their first child, William Michael Biggs, via adoption — and discovered that their second child was already on the way.
In “Curse of the Bambino,” Mike and Molly’s eagerness to hear back from the adoption agency prompted them to do whatever was necessary to sway the odds of getting a baby in their favor. While Mike paid a visit to Carl’s psychic, Molly turned to Catholicism. We’re not saying their efforts worked, but that call did come after Mike took Madame Vianne’s advice and gave up something he loved, trading in his cherished car for a family minivan; meanwhile, Molly turned to prayer and buried Peggy’s necklace of St. William (the patron saint of adoption) in the backyard.
In the second half hour, “I See Love,” the central couple got a call informing them that the mother of their baby was in labor — three weeks earlier than expected. Once at the hospital, Joyce and Peggy’s contentious relationship came to a head when Mike’s mom asked the parents-to-be to move in with her to create a more wholesome environment for her grandchild. The fight was quickly broken up, however, as the in-laws were forced to play nice in front of Mike and Molly’s adoption advocate (played by Fresh Prince vet Vernee Watson). Once the family feud reached its conclusion, Mike got a moment to ask Carl to be the godfather to his child; similarly, Molly asked Victoria to be the godmother. (Oh, and did we mention Carl and Victoria are sort of back together? Perhaps those crazy kids have a future after all.)
After Mike and Molly brought out William to introduce him to the entire Flynn-Biggs clan, she announced that, against all odds, she was about to be a mother of two. An earlier bout of nausea convinced her to buy a pregnancy test at the hospital gift shop, confirming her suspicion of a pregnancy she and Mike figured was impossible. Finally, as the episode drew to a close, the overwhelmed couple embraced the joys of new parenthood and sang the sitcom’s uplifting theme song to their newborn son as he drifted off to sleep.
