The Middle Premiere Sneak Peek: Axl's New Girlfriend Dumbfounds the Hecks

Axl’s new squeeze is going to have Frankie longing for the days of Morgan Edwards.

In TVLine’s exclusive clip from The Middle‘s Season 8 premiere (Tuesday, 8/7c), the Hecks meet April (Awkward‘s Greer Grammer), who could definitely benefit from taking a public speaking class — or perhaps by going back to kindergarten and starting over from there.

Simply put, April is… kind of an idiot. I mean, she’s lovely and charming and seems to make Axl very happy — but you can practically hear the wind whistling through her ears as she tries to form intelligible sentences.

Hit PLAY on the video above to meet April for yourselves, then drop a comment with your thoughts below.
