The New Mayor!

Bless The Harts Episode 12 finds its anchor in a socio-political commentary. As Greenpoint starts with its Mayor Election, Mayor Webb (Jon Hamm) is faced with the prospect of losing his position for the first time. For years, nobody in Greenpoint has ever been interested in taking over the Mayor’s chair but this time he has a potential and adorable competition i.e., Root Beer – The dog in a cowboy hat. And as much as I dig this entire idea, we know a dog for a mayor is absurd but the folks of Greenpoint, not much to my surprise, differ from the notion.

Mayor Webb, who now no longer has a campaign manager, seeks refuge in Jenny to help him through this and well, she accepts. Only to later know that her beloved mother Betty is leading the campaign for Root Beer. Hence, things are only going to get sour between Jenny and Betty as they fight tooth and nail for victory! Will Root Beer win? Will Jenny and Betty ever get over this beef? Is a dog Mayor the only future of Greenpoint are some questions we see answers for in Bless The Harts Episode 12.

Additionally, Wayne doesn’t like the Election system, since he naively believes that every election candidate should run unopposed. Why? Because a two-party system creates division, incongruity, and conflict which he’s not fond of. Violet tries to knock some sense into him by telling him that he’s inadvertently endorsing fascism but well, it falls on Wayne’s deaf ears. 

Bless The Harts Episode 12, like every other episode of the second season, features an underlying commentary. The entire shenanigan represents the idea of politics and how people would go to any extent to win even if it means misleading voters with false ideas or creating fake scenarios to defame the other candidate – it’s as dirty as it gets. The small town of Greenpoint and every single problem/situation they face is brewed to perfection.
