(Season 5, Episode 19)
This was one of three episodes that were previewed at Bob’s Burgers Live in Detroit, the others being “Eat Spray Linda” and the upcoming season six Halloween episode. We were shown clips of the other two, while the cast gave a table read for the first act of “Housetrap.” It seemed like a solid episode, and it only got better when I finally saw where it went from there. Featuring Bob high on painkillers, a paranoid Linda, and a potential love interest for Teddy in Kaitlin Olson’s Helen (even though she probably killed her husband), “Housetrap” continued the stretch of great episodes that closed season five.
Best moment: When Bob is tired of Gene’s shit.
