JJ DiMeo heading to summer camp on ‘Speechless’

After an entire episode of will-he-or-won’t-he, Speechless revealed at the end of the “M-A–MAY-JAY” episode (Season 1, Episode 22) that JJ will in fact be going to summer camp in the season one finale.

JJ (Micah Fowler) first pitches the idea of summer camp to his aide Kenneth (Cedric Yarbrough) but struggles to tell his overprotective mom (Minnie Driver) of his plans, especially after she finds out the school won’t be paying for Kenneth’s services over the summer.

Unhappy at the prospect of not spending 10 weeks with her son – “They have those, do they? Mother-son camp,” Maya says when he does finally ask her.

JJ ends up changing his mind when he falls out of his wheelchair and has to be rushed to the hospital. But then Maya feels bad and talks him back into going to camp, after all.

That the next episode “C-A–CAMP” promises that we’ll get to see JJ at this 10-week camp as the first season of the ABC comedy closes out on May 17.
