Bouncing back is the only option, so Otis throws a small gathering that turns rowdy, and Jackson deals with the healing. Who can handle the truth?
- It was kind of terrifying how this episode raised the stakes so much and so suddenly compared to both the previous couple of episodes; and to the previous season itself.
- I feel terrible for Aimee.
- I’ve talked about how this series manages to redeem and be kind to almost all its characters, but it isn’t holding back in showing Otis’s descent into being an asshole. From his stealing Jean’s confidential notes, to that rant at the party, to just having the party to show how chill he is… argh.
- Oh lord, Groff photocopying Jean’s notes. This is going to be terrible.
- Jackson almost smashing his hand again, and Viv telling his parents – yikes yikes yikes. That was such an emotional subplot.
- The small moments of lightness:
- Eric standing up for himself with Adam
- Adam and Ola, of all people, bonding
- Jean and Mrs Groff going out, getting drunk, and partying. And Jean getting a little maudlin over Jakob.
- “If you aren’t ready to ask your boyfriend about douching, you aren’t ready to have his cock between your arse.”
- Otis and Ruby? Oh noooooo.
