I've had this long-standing theory about Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Mac (Rob McElhenney), Charlie (Charlie Day), Dee (Kaitlin Olson), and Frank (Danny DeVito) – and from the looks of the preview for this week's episode of FXX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, 'The Gang Does a Clip Show,' I might just get proven right. As screwed-up as they are individually, I feel like it's always been in our best interest (and by "our" I mean "the very fabric of reality") that they're constantly self-absorbed and distracted by the "next great idea" because the very thought of the damage that fivesome could inflict if they pulled their brains together for something deep and meaningful is…well…downright marrow-chilling.
Looks like that fear was justified…
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia s13e07 'The Gang Does a Clip Show': With nothing to do while their phones update to the latest software, the gang decides to reminisce on old times. As everyone misremembers events from their past, the gang's current reality becomes altered.
Here's a look at a crucial moment from last week's episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia ('The Gang Solves The Bathroom Problem') – and a very personal moment for Charlie – when Mac, Dennis, and Dee learn a little something new about their rat-killing, spray pain fume-sniffing friend:
The Gang Returns… mostly…. in the 13th season of the FXX original comedy series It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Mac (Rob McElhenney), Charlie (Charlie Day), Dee (Kaitlin Olson) and Frank (Danny DeVito) return to their duplicitous, scheming ways at Paddy's Pub, while Dennis (Glenn Howerton) takes on the new role of father in North Dakota.
Even without Dennis Reynolds, the Gang has its hands full as Charlie hopes to have a child with The Waitress, Mac sets out to understand his newfound sexuality, Dee takes feminism to new heights, and Frank goes to great lengths for the Gang to experience the greatest moment in Philadelphia sports history – an Eagles Super Bowl victory.
