Fan Reactions: ‘Abbott Elementary’ Returns With Black History & Crush Clarity

The Daily Grind Video


Finally! “Abbott Elementary” returned this week on ABC and Hulu. This Valentine’s Day themed episode brought its fans love, Black history and crush clarity. Check out this week’s episode recap and fan reactions inside.

The comedy series took another hiatus, returning last night (Feb. 8). We are still trying to understand its mid-season breaks, but grateful the ABC fan-favorite gave us the laughter we missed. Season 2 of “Abbott Elementary” is shaping up nicely. The hit series released Episode 14 titled  “Valentine’s Day,” and they covered a lot.

The official episode description details:

The Abbott teachers discuss their relationships and plans for Valentine’s Day; Janine finds out one of her students has a crush on her; Ava sits in on Jacob’s Black History class after receiving a complaint.

The month of February is all about love. The Abbott faculty take to the teacher’s lounge to discuss their big Lover’s Day plans, and Janine discovers that someone has a crush on her. Meanwhile, Principal Ava gets a complaint and begins sitting in on Jacob’s lessons about Black History. She realizes that Jacob is actually great at his job, so much that she finds a new quest for learning. Jacob was so distracted by his assessment that he overshared (once again) to Janine that a special someone really likes her.

Fans caught a quick glimpse at Janine’s sister Ayesha (Ayo Edebiri) who appears on FaceTime. We initially thought she might make a surprise visit, but it looks like the sisters need some time before any serious rekindling begins. It was Edebiri’s soft launch into the series.

Overall, ten out of ten. Fans can’t get enough of the show, because it trends on Twitter once again with over 12k tweets today (Feb. 9). Be sure to catch the latest episode on ABC Wednesdays at 9pm ET and streaming on Hulu the following day.
