In Last Man Standing Season 7, Episode 18, misunderstandings led to hurt feelings. How did those conflicts become resolved?

Misunderstandings in Last Man Standing Season 7, Episode 18 caused some hurt feelings. After her mother Bonnie (Susan Sullivan) and Ed (Hector Elizondo) became engaged, Vanessa (Nancy Travis) became concerned. Mike (Tim Allen) got caught in the crossfire, and Ed became upset. Did Vanessa successfully mend those misgivings?

Elsewhere, before they moved into their new apartment, Mandy (Molly McCook) and Kyle (Christoph Sanders) asked Chuck (Jonathan Adams) to install a security camera. He did, and they eavesdropped on a conversation between Ryan (Jordan Masterson) and Kristen (Amanda Fuller).

Lacking the context of the conversation, Mandy and Kyle misinterpreted the dialogue, and they jumped to the wrong conclusions. Did they clarify the conversation topic? Will they still move into the apartment?

Otherwise engaged

After developing feelings for each other earlier this season, Ed and Bonnie are now dating. Despite the long-distance between Bonnie’s residence in Connecticut and Ed’s house in Colorado, they care deeply about each other. Ed is even more focused on this relationship than his job. While he is no longer retired, he regularly works.

Because his relationship with Bonnie has affected Ed’s work performance, Mike implored Ed to alter something in his relationship with Bonnie. Ed agreed, and he and Bonnie returned with news.

Both Mike and Vanessa worried about the engagement. Ed has been divorced four times, and Bonnie’s marriage ended upon the death of her husband. Rather than face them herself, Vanessa asked Mike to discuss the situation with Ed.

Mike spoke with Ed, but it didn’t go well. Mike has served as Ed’s best man in all four weddings, and so Mike cautioned Ed not to marry Bonnie. Understandably upset, Ed told Mike that he would have a different best man.

Upon arrival at the Baxter house, Mike forced Vanessa to express her feelings. Ed quickly apologized to Mike, and Bonnie told the whole story. She proposed to Ed. She remains in control of her life. Additionally, she plans on moving from Connecticut to Denver to be with Ed along with the Baxters. While Vanessa accepted the outcome, Ed became upset at Vanessa.

Vanessa arrived at Ed’s office with alcohol to make peace. She expressed her fears about her mother, and Ed doesn’t have an impressive record with women. While Ed begrudgingly understood, he informed her that he too doubted himself. He considered proposing as early as three months ago, but he withheld his proposal due to his failed marriages.

When Bonnie proposed, he accepted because perhaps he has grown, and she has confidence in him. Ed and Vanessa hugged it out, and he offered her the role of best man. Hopefully, this relationship ends well.

Misunderstood conversation

Last Man Standing continued its storyline of Mandy and Kyle moving into the apartment above Buds Buds. Chuck installed a security camera for them, and they quickly put it into use.

Ryan saw a mouse running around the apartment, and he became determined to remove it. He conversed about it with Kristen, but the conversation sounded differently to Mandy and Kyle. They thought he referred to them as disgusting, can’t get wait to get rid of it, etc. They called out Kristen and Ryan, and hilarity ensued.

While the confusion was remedied, the hasty judgments still left Ryan with an awkward taste in his mouth. Kyle and Mandy never officially apologized, so evidently, they will move into the apartment in a future Last Man Standing episode.

When I read the synopsis for this Last Man Standing episode, I envisioned an entirely different episode. Kudos to Last Man Standing for duping me.

Congratulations as well to Bonnie and Ed! It would be fitting for the wedding to take place at Outdoor Man. Ed co-founded Outdoor Man with Mike, and now Mike will be Ed’s son-in-law. To boot, Outdoor Man was the site of Kyle and Mandy’s wedding. Finally, Ed and Bonnie rekindled their friendship at Outdoor Man Grill.

With only four episodes remaining in this season of Last Man Standing, there are plenty of storylines for the show. This episode built on previous storylines, but it also added a large new one. Will we see another wedding in a future Last Man Standing episode? Time will tell.
