In terms of the series overall plot of the series this episode feels like somewhat of a speed bump. Correct me if I'm wrong but there weren't any important book or stangate related scenes, I missed the sequence before the opening so I'm not sure but it felt mostly like an episode focused on Mabel with everyone else taking a backseat, there is one thing possibly important I spotted that I won't spoil though.
Well you do have to remember that season 1 had many episodes that didn't advance the plot. Just because Stan started things moving doesn't mean we should expect the show to change up its formula. WE will get some plot episodes, but we can also expect to see plenty of episodic filler
