‘Kevin Can Wait’
Vanessa (Leah Remini) and Kevin (Kevin James) will officially start working together in “Kevin Can Wait” Season 2, episode 2. CBS

“Kevin Can Wait” Season 2, episode 2 will see Kevin (Kevin James) finally working for Vanessa (Leah Remini).

In “Business Unusual,” Kevin’s daughter, Kendra (Taylor Sprietler), will be tricking her dad into accepting a job at Vanessa’s own private security company. The concerned daughter wants to keep her dad busy especially after her mom’s death.

But before Kevin and Vanessa finalize a professional deal, the two characters will first be spending some time at the amusement park. In the teaser released by CBS for episode 2, Kevin and Vanessa’s hilarious dynamic is shown. Vanessa, who is very sure of herself, is being dubbed as a “she-ro,” as in a female hero.

When they ride a thrill ride at the amusement park, Vanessa remains unfazed. Kevin, on the other hand, screams nonstop and even panics.

“Kevin Can Wait” Season 2 now revolves on Kevin and Vanessa after it was announced a couple of months ago that Donna (Erinn Hayes) will no longer return. Weeks later, it was confirmed that she will be killed off. When the series premiered last week, Donna’s death was not directly addressed in the show. But it was revealed that one year has already passed so Kevin and his daughter are in a slightly much better place at the moment.

Unfortunately, the series was faced with several criticisms from fans who weren’t happy that Donna’s death wasn’t fully addressed. Remini came to the show creators’ defense via her Twitter account. One fan said that she’s disgusted with the show, and Remini sarcastically said that she feels the fan is sugarcoating her words.

Another fan called the move to fire Hayes and up Remini to series regular status “classless.” The actress replied by pointing out that she did not make the decision. She also said that “Kevin Can Wait” is a sitcom and not a “deep” series. The former Scientologist also noted the fact that Hayes has landed a role on a different show and stressed that real things are happening in the world and should be given more attention instead.

“Kevin Can Wait” Season 2 airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EDT on CBS.
