When we’re talking about the Pitch Perfect franchise, there is one thing that we can count on – Bumper is going to mess things up. It’s because we expect it that we’re not shocked by it. He’s always been the one who makes mistakes and tries to clean it up and ends up making bigger mistakes. He just can be forgiven because he’s got the best of intentions.
He knows that he’s got to set things right and so that means apologizing. But it’s not going well, because in typical Bumper fashion, he’s making excuses to Heidi rather than being honest and also just uttering the words, i’m sorry.
The song is doing so good, that Bumper and Thea have been asked to perform it on a television show, Sour Pickles. Now, I love a pickle, but this would be a hard pass. Sour shit is gross. But can we all talk about how Heidi is both excited and broken at the same time. She’s super talented.
I know that we’re only on the third episode of the series, but in my opinion, this is definitely Sarah Hyland’s show. It’s her time to shine and she definitely outshines everyone in the series. Every scene that she’s in you are focused on her and rooting for her character to win.
While I am fully aware that this is Adam Devine‘s show and he does a great job playing Bumper, one can’t help but be distracted by the other characters in the show. Bumper and Pieter are great – sure. But it’s really Heidi and Thea that you are rooting for.
Why? Because Pieter pawning over Gisela and making his whole life about a woman that is way beyond disgusting to him – it is like I get it, you’re funny, but it’s just too much. And Bumper, well, he’s never been the favorite, but it’s because he keeps being as annoying as Peter that you can’t really pay attention to him.
The truth is all of these characters are great, but as in every series some rise to the top.
On the Sour Pickles show, Bumper thinks that he’s doing the right thing by telling everyone on the show that Heidi wrote the song, but makes things worst. The hosts believe that it has something to Pieter and Bumper doesn’t do anything to dispel that rumor. He makes it worse.
For Heidi – she’s upset. Bumper has put her in a situation that she doesn’t want to be in. She has no choice but to admit that she has musical aspirations. And she wasn’t ready. For Thea and Pieter, he’s made it so that people will always think they are liars. Pieter was already a disgrace so for him it was too much to deal with.
Bumper and Pieter try to get the show to not air, but they can’t even get in the building. But Heidi and Thea – they get into that building really easy. The two are able to get in and talk to the hosts. What they want to do is get the episode not to air, and the way to do that? Well, Pieter would have to go on and talk to them all about Gisela’s involvement in his scandal.
Now Pieter doesn’t want to have to do that, which I have no idea why. There is a time to throw people under the bus, especially when they have never and don’t show any loyalty. Gisela has no loyalty and she would make Pieter look like trash no matter what. The two of them don’t belong together and quite frankly Pieter needs to get over it.
Bumper tells Pieter that he can’t do it and instead makes a competition with Gisela. A riff off. I really can’t, like I rolled my eyes so big, but this is Pitch Perfect, so there is no shock over it. Also no shock that Bumper wins the competition between the two.
Team Bumper is finding their way back together.
But what I am hoping in this whole experience is that it’s Heidi that gets to perform at unity day. I feel like she would be the best person for it and well, if we’re being honest, I am hoping that it sets up for her own spin off.
New characters. New show. Etc…
- Thea pushing Heidi to perform and realize her own worth – I am here for it.
- Old warehouses are scary, but hey if it makes you happy
- Pieter needs to chill out
- Bumper should have never told Gisela that he knew anything.
- Of course Gisela shows up as soon as Pieter says he’s moved on.
