Dean got a huge shock at the end of the last episode of THE GRINDER when he learned that a new “Grinder” spin-off — staring Timothy Olyphant — was coming to television. In this week’s episode, the family will finally screen the first episode and it, predictably, includes Olyphant’s character being completely fine with ripping off his shirt.
Enter Cliff Bemis (guest star Jason Alexander), who comes to town to ask Dean to film a scene giving closure to his beloved character, Mitch. But Dean is struggling with being replaced by his TV brother, Rake. And he particularly doesn’t want Bemis to kill off Mitch. Meanwhile, Stewart feels like he’s been placed by his brother in Ethan’s eyes and he jumps at the chance to get Dean back into acting and out of his house. To do this, he tells Dean he’ll help him convince Bemis to keep Mitch alive.
Don’t miss an all new episode of THE GRINDER on December 1 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
