‘Speechless’ Episode Guide (Oct. 12): JJ and Kenneth Live the High Life at a Baseball Game

“I-N-S– INSPIRATIONS” (10/12/16) – Exploring the city on their own, JJ and Kenneth realize strangers look at them as inspirational. The two push their luck, receiving free food and baseball game admissions.

Kenneth lets this get to his head, goes overboard, and things fall apart. Meanwhile, as the family can’t do anything without having to worry about wheelchair accessibility, Dylan and Ray convince Maya to take them paintballing. But can she let herself have fun without JJ? “Speechless” airs WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12 (8:30-9:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.

As Maya fights injustices both real and imagined, the family works to make a new home for themselves and searches for just the right person to give JJ his “voice.”
