Last Thursday's episode of Louie was a pitch-perfect outing, which saw Louie and his date, Liz (Parker Posey) wander the streets of New York City, helping a homeless man, enjoying some delicious-looking fish, and climbing to a rooftop for a final, emotional scene where Liz expressed that she had no fear of heights because she wasn't afraid she would jump -- she was having too good of a time being alive.
But now that the date's ended, what's next for Louie? It's already been confirmed that we'll see Parker Posey on the show a few more times, but "in a weird way," according to creator Louis C.K. But what's coming up for "Barney/Never," tonight's episode?
According to the show's synopsis, "A guy dies, Louie meets a comedian, and has a bad day with a bad kid."
Which comedian is Louie meeting? We know that Marc Maron and Jerry Seinfeld are slated to appear this season at some point, so maybe it's one of them. In any case, a comedian guest starring on Louie is always a good thing.
There's no real way to guess which "guy" is dying, considering Louie's large and amorphous cast. What we can guess, though, is that the death will be at least darkly funny. And with C.K.'s golden touch, you can bet we'll be tuning in to find out how.
Check out a promo for the episode, which features Louie at the "bad kid," here.
"Barney/Never" airs tonight at 10:30/9:30c on FX. Will you be tuning in?
