‘Speechless’ Episode Guide (Oct. 18): Jimmy Gives JJ ‘The Talk’

“T-TR– TRAINING D-A– DAY” (10/18/17) – Jimmy takes JJ camping to give him “the talk,” Maya trains a ragtag group of new aides, and sparks fly between Dylan and Ray’s bully, on “Speechless,” WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 18 (8:30-9:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.

Guest starring in this episode are Marin Hinkle as Dr. Miller, Felix Avitia as Brandon, Karly Rothenberg as crossing guard, Kate Bergeron as English teacher, Christian Grosselfinger as hitchhiker, Amanda McDonough as hearing impaired student, Louisa Abernathy as librarian, Steve Agee as lunch man, Carlos E. Campos as park ranger and Julian A. Sanchez as visually impaired student.

“T-TR– TRAINING D-A– DAY” was written by Carrie Rosen and directed by Bill Purple.

Maya DiMeo is the mom who will do anything for her husband, Jimmy, and kids Ray, Dylan, and JJ, her eldest son with cerebral palsy. In Season 2 of this amusing and often unexpected comedy, the family along with JJ’s aide, Kenneth, are reunited after JJ’s first-time summer camp adventure.

As we move into the new school year, the DiMeos, who have always been on the search to find the right school support for JJ, are faced with a new and unfamiliar reality. The DiMeo kids are going to continue at the same school! This is unchartered territory for the DiMeos but, as always, they will find a fun balance in everything they do while adjusting to the concept of becoming actual members of a community.

“Speechless” stars Minnie Driver as Maya DiMeo, John Ross Bowie (“The Big Bang Theory”) as Jimmy DiMeo, Mason Cook as Ray DiMeo, Micah Fowler as JJ DiMeo, Kyla Kenedy as Dylan DiMeo and Cedric Yarbrough as Kenneth.
