[S3E5] It Ain't Over Till It's Over
Hicks is another industry veteran who has been involved in a bunch of cool projects over the course of her career. You probably know her from "True Colors," "Sister, Sister," or "Girlfriends." I remember watching several seasons of the later in a post-vomit haze after a horrible bout of the flu during my junior year of college. It would probably feel dated now (in the same way that "Gilmore Girls" does) but I loved it at the time. One other thing I should mention about Hicks is that she's the co-showrunner on "Central Park," a new Apple animated series that shares DNA with one of my favorites, "Bob's Burgers."
On one hand, we've all been there; on the other hand, there's a way to show interest without being overly persistent. It's problematic if you're in your 30s and haven't figured out how to strike a balance yet.
As I anticipated, there has been some criticism over the missing condom in the ferris wheel sex scene. Safe sex is smart and showrunners should do what they can to portray the use of condoms on-screen; however, anyone who has ever taken Molly understands why wrapping it up probably wasn't top of mind at the moment. And who knows? This might be intentional. Maybe shady Nathan will give Issa an STD and my suspicions about him will be vindicated. Or maybe he'll get Issa pregnant (although I hope she was smart enough to get an IUD under We Got Ya'll health insurance). Or maybe nothing at all will happen because sometimes people on drugs have fun and do dumb shit and nothing bad happens (I've done the same thing, coincidentally on a ferris wheel, and I'm totally fine. Jk ... about the ferris wheel). Rae has addressed this criticism before and made improvements, so I would be surprised if this scene was just a complete oversight.
While Issa buries her internal struggles enough to have fun at Coachella, her bff's come tumbling out in droves. It turns out that Molly (the person) on Molly (the drug) = a bad combination of sloppy and racially insensitive. Since teaming up with Taurean, the one-upper, Molly has struggled to shine. Instead of giving less fucks and succumbing to her role as team member and not superstar, she runs herself ragged trying to make the partners notice her. Can you imagine taking on an additional work assignment over a weekend when you have tickets to Beychella? If I had Bey tickets and work said I had to come in or lose my job, I would tell them to fire my ass. But Molly is more driven than me and actually cares about her career, so she misses day one of Coachella to finish up a brief.
After day 2 is over and everyone regains cell service, Molly freaks out when she checks her email and sees a bunch of last-minute notes from her boss. Right outside the gates of Coachella, she starts screaming, asking if anyone has a laptop. When they get back to the house, she frantically types out an email that Issa prevents her from sending because it is complete gibberish. Yes, this is Molly on drugs, but it's pretty obvious that she's wildly unhappy. Every emotion that she typically suppresses comes pouring out with reckless abandon and I worry about how much longer she can make it without having a nervous breakdown. I hope she keeps going to therapy because gf needs to learn how to be gentler with herself, to curb her expectations and pivot when things don't go according to plan.
Speaking of things not going according to plan, no one gets to see Beyonce because Kelli starts a fight and gets the whole group kicked out of the festival. As someone who is occasionally an angry drunk, I understand how this happened. I almost fought a girl at Governor's Ball when she refused to close her umbrella during Local Natives and almost poked my eye out with her drunken swaying. Crowds are annoying, people who feel entitled to do ignorant shit are annoying, but violence is never the answer, especially when Beyonce is about to perform. Goddammit, Kelli!
Since the pregnancy, I actually feel like Tiffany has made more of an effort with her friends. There's no way in hell I would go to Coachella 5+ months pregnant, so I give her major props for that one (she even took a bite of weed brownie). She has to sense that no one is super excited for her baby (Kelli's comments at dinner in E2) but she still shows up and tries to have fun. When she and Issa talk in the car outside of 7/11, it's the first time I can remember her ever expressing insecurities to one of her friends:

Back in the stolen convertible, Jopper and Alexi reach the man who knew the Russians were trying to infiltrate Hawkins all along: Murray Bauman (Brett Gelman). Of course, his actions to get the United States Government to flee Hawkins at the end of season two paved the way for the current Russian infiltration. But, you know. Whatevs. 041b061a72
