In the season finale, “Have a Summer,” Adam and his friends are stressing out about Hell Week, where the incoming freshmen are hazed by the seniors. Adam gains the respect of the old kids at school when he body slams Barry. Meanwhile, Erica and her friends discuss what they are going to put in their school’s time capsule.
The VCR-loving, mixtape-making, spandex-wearing Goldbergs are exactly who they appear to be. For geeky and movie obsessed youngest child Adam, his wonder years were spent documenting the hilarious and awkward antics of his colorful family. Mom, Beverly is at her best when she’s meddling, matchmaking and bedazzling her way through life, while Dad, Murray parents from the comfort of his recliner in his underpants.
Oldest sister, Erica, dreams of being a Pop Star if she can only overcome her secret love of all things uncool. Then there’s middle child, Barry, who’s just as in touch with his emotions as he is with his sick rap skills, which is how he landed Erica’s best friend and the hottest girl in school, Lainey as his girlfriend. Rounding out the brood is beloved grandfather, Al “Pops” Solomon, the wild man of the clan, a shameless Don Juan who enjoys family time with his grandkids almost as much as his weekly massages. This season found the siblings fighting off huggies, snuggies, and nubbies as they navigate what it means to grow up as a Goldberg.
