‘Bob Hearts Abishola’ Hit Episode 50 and Could Change Bob and Abishola’s Future Forever

The CBS comedy Bob Hearts Abishola from Chuck Lorre had a busy fourth week in 2022. On January 24, CBS officially ordered Bob Hearts Abishola Season 4 to return in Fall 2022. The announcement came the same night that Bob Hearts Abishola reached 50 episodes. And it certainly dropped a lot of surprises on viewers. Fans have long followed Folake Olowofoyeku’s journey to becoming a doctor but did not expect her plans to move to Baltimore – and neither did Bob (Billy Gardell).

‘Bob Hearts Abishola’ Season 3, Episode 12 marked the 50th episode for the sitcom

Bob Hearts Abishola Season 3 started with a bang, as Bob and Abishola married in the first two episodes. Most shows save weddings for season finales, but with issues during season 2, co-creators Chuck Lorre and Gina Yashere pushed it back.

Season 3 introduced fun new plots, like Bob’s brother Douglas (Matt Jones) finding a romance with bus driver Olivia (Edy Ganem). Just before Bob Hearts Abishola episode 50, they agreed to try a date “off the bus.”

However, the season also examined some heavier topics. Abishola’s niece, Morenike, confided in Abishola (Folake Olowofoyeku) and Kemi (Gina Yashere). When Bob accidentally revealed the fact to her Nigerian community, they did not take it well.

And as Bob Hearts Abishola Season 3, Episode 12 aired, it re-established a common theme in the season about communication.

‘Bob Hearts Abishola’ Episode 50 brought the season 3 focus on communication front and center

When Chuck Lorre, Eddie Gorodetsky, and Al Higgins came up with Bob Hearts Abishola, they knew they could not handle it alone. They brought in Gina Yashere, who wanted real Nigerian actors and writers to have a hand in representing the culture.

Much of the show’s comedy relies on the clash between an upper-middle-class American family and the traditional Nigerian culture.

Bob and Abishola have found themselves in many arguments, only made worse by Abishola’s harsh mother, Ebun (Saidah Arrika Ekulona). Abishola dropped a massive bomb that she planned to attend medical school in Baltimore, leaving Bob in Detroit.

Bob had no idea of this either, and it sparked a fight.

However, Bob Hearts Abishola Episode 50 brought the season’s central theme back: communication. When the two finally sat down to discuss their future and her medical degree, they came to an understanding.

What does the future hold for Bob and Abishola?

Bob Hearts Abishola Episode 50 might mark a change in direction for the couple. As Abishola continues her journey to become a doctor, fans might see her and Bob living in two different places down the line.

She even brought up the idea of Bob stepping down as the head of his family business, MaxDot. He would have to leave someone else in charge. Kofo (Tony Okungbowa) has already seen a promotion in season 3. If he continues improving, he could one day take Bob’s position.

Though the one thing the two decided on was that they had to get Abishola’s toxic mother back to her home country of Nigeria.

As the newlyweds learn more about the importance of communication, fans can catch Bob Hearts Abishola Episode 50 and beyond Monday nights at 8:30 pm EST or streaming on Paramout+.
