‘Central Park’ turns double Dutch into art in this exclusive clip
This week, central park brings back the double Dutch. Ahead of the premiere of “Celeste We Forget,” Decider has your exclusive first look at the Season 2 final episode. What if you thought Owen’s (Leslie Odom Jr.) lyrics were slick when he had both feet on the ground? , wait until you hear them mid-jump.
All Owen wants to do in “Celeste We Forget” is take his family to see the rare bloom of the Corpse Flower. But when her mother Celeste, voiced by Blackishby Jenifer Lewis, arrives for a surprise visit, all of Owen’s careful plans are uprooted. The clip unfolds as Owen tries to rush his family to see the flower show. But his mother, spying on kids dubbing, has other plans.
“Come on honey, you know you want to put on your Dutch! said Celeste.
“I’ve heard of a Dutch oven. But a Dutch Owen? asks Cole (Tituss Burgess).
Bowing to pressure from his mother and the judgment that comes from his children, Owen steps in – literally. What follows is yet another super catchy song as Owen panics about not sticking to his well-laid plans and Celeste tries to convince him to relax for once in his life. Honestly, that’s a lesson pissed off Owen needs to learn.
While all of this is going on, a flaky room Paige (Kathryn Hahn) is working on turns into hard news. Bitsy (Stanley Tucci) and Helen (Daveed Diggs) better watch out. Journalist Ace Paige is on their trail.
