This Week on '30 Rock': Reality Strikes

This week's 30 Rock was all about confronting reality, and our characters did so in a whole variety of ways.

First, Danny has to confront that, as a good-looking man recently nominated for a JUNO award for his ScotiaBank Place psych-up song, he's bound to be the brunt of some practical jokes. He teams up with Jack, together becoming the Silver Panthers, and the two wage two particularly entertaining jokes on the writers, culminating in some back and forth, Twig and Plums, and ultimately a visit to Frank's mother's house.

But in this episode, there were bigger fish to fry. Liz's ex-boyfriend Floyd gets back in touch with her and is back in New York, and they're set for a date. Soon after plans are made, however, Liz has to confront the reality of Floyd's impending marriage, possibly occurring right outside her office window, to a blonde "yogaerobics" instructor. Reality really strikes though, after Floyd and Liz's unfortunate date.

The most traumatic encounter with reality (or lack thereof) was Jenna and Tracy's horrific 12-hour Kenneth session, which resulted in some particular freaky dreams, and an Elm Street-style dream exorcism.

At the end of the day, though, little harm is done, except for visions of Liz's future bridesmaid dress and, worst of all, Floyd's tribal tramp stamp.
