Kevin Can Wait Season 2 Episode 23 Recap
On April 23, 2007, Adam Sandler made his guest appearance on King of Queens, playing one of Doug’s wild high school friends who has spent the years growing up and becoming a responsible adult, unlike anyone else in the Kevin James Cinematic Universe. Nine years later, Sandler returned to the KJCU where he was once again an old friend and police officer named Landers in Episode Eight of Kevin Can Wait’s first season. His presence in this cinematic universe basically consists of “old friend,” one who pops up at random points throughout the years, and will return once again in Kevin Can Wait.
Now, Sandler will make another appearance in the Kevin Can Wait Season Two finale alongside Chris Rock.
“We play in this band—we revived this band we played together in the 1980s and we get back together—called Smokefish and it’s pretty rough,” James told CBS. “Sandler can sing and musically he’s fantastic, but me and Chris Rock, man, it’s horrendous. It’s so bad but it makes for a great final episode.”
As you may recall, King of Queens star Leah Remini made her first guest appearance in the finale of Kevin Can Wait Season One. Between seasons, beloved Gable matriarch Donna was killed off, and King of Queens star Leah Remini was brought in as a permanent cast member replacing actress and friend of the investigation Erinn Hayes.
Assuming Kevin Can Wait sticks with its formula, Adam Sandler and Chris Rock will become permanent stars on the show by Season Three, Episode One. The only question is, who will they replace? At this point, Leah Remini is safe. But, what about Daughter? In this week’s episode Daughter and Befuddled Englishman bought Enzo’s because Kevin gave them $90,000, which I’m assuming he got from cashing Donna’s life insurance check.
This storyline promises to get a lot more involved in the coming third season—and like the Monkey Fist plot in Season Two—might require bigger stars to anchor it. My theory is Sandler and Rock will replace Daughter and Befuddled Englishman. Sandler will spend an entire season dressed in drag playing Daughter as if nothing has happened, while Rock will adopt a British accent to play her husband.
The cast change will never be mentioned on the show—like they did with Donna—and eventually characters on this show will only be played by other actors in the Kevin James Cinematic Universe, including Patton Oswalt, Will Smith, Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Ray Romano.
