Series 5 - Episode 5 Halloween Surprise

Review

This double bill contains one of the sweetest and most genuinely affecting scenes ever seen in Parks and Rec, and it’s sure to bring a tear to your eye.

However, it’s also a massive spoiler to say exactly what it is so we’ll just gloss over that and focus on everything else that happens this week, which includes a new business opportunity for self-described mogul Tom, relationship struggles for Ben and Leslie (as well as Ben’s parents) and a scene where uber-manly Ron Swanson goes trick-or-treating with little girls.

It’s also a banner week for Rob Lowe’s fitness-obsessed Chris Traeger, whose increasingly offbeat behavior is brilliantly, manically entertaining – but in the end, it’s all overshadowed by THAT scene. Keep an eye out.

Summary

Leslie's future with Ben is on hold after he gets a job offer, Leslie and Ann give Jerry a heart attack, and Ron's new relationship is in jeopardy.
