“Hella Shook” is one in every of Insecure’s greatest episodes. Though final week’s episode felt inconsistently paced, Insecure has all the time performed an unimaginable job of hitting emotional highs whereas transferring the narrative ahead. Loads of conflicts are lastly addressed and it units up plenty of thrilling potentialities for the remainder of the season. We’ve been ready to fulfill Molly’s household and the second doesn’t disappoint.

The scenes with Molly’s household are fantastic. It’s not arduous to see why she needs a relationship like her father or mother’s. That’s the factor although––Molly needs that and he or she received’t accept much less. She passes on Dro’s provide by saying that’s not the best way she sees her life going. It’s a callback to the second Molly’s therapist asks her if she’d be okay together with her life understanding in a method completely different than she anticipated. Discovering out that her father or mother’s marriage isn’t good is sufficient to make her contemplate altering her life plan. She instantly reacts by drastically altering her relationship expectations. Like, instantly. She ditches Lionel and takes Dro again to her place. All of us thought Lawrence was cold-hearted, however Molly simply confirmed us the way it’s performed.

In fact, Molly and Dro have lovely wonderful intercourse collectively––their chemistry is wonderful. It’s nice that Molly is re-adjusting her expectations, however that is clearly a rash choice that’s solely going to harm her. Dro was there for her in an emotional second, however Dro can’t help her emotionally. Whereas Molly might settle for that she’ll by no means have an ideal marriage, she isn’t prepared to be somebody’s sidechick. She needs to be supported and liked and Dro can by no means give that to her. The present makes it clear that Dro is in an open marriage; he’s not polyamorous. He casually sleeps with different individuals, but it surely doesn’t look like he has a reference to them past that. Clearly, that’s not the case with Molly and we don’t understand how Dro’s spouse will really feel about that. Dro ought to’ve laid out the construction of his relationship earlier than blowing Molly’s again out.

She’s going to be harm when she realizes she fell for somebody who’s emotionally unavailable to her in the best way she needs and I don’t suppose she will be able to deal with that proper now. That’s additionally the case with Daniel. Poor Daniel. Issa is once more utilizing him and attempting to disregard the fact of the scenario. It ought to be clear to her that Daniel has emotions for her and if she truly cares about these emotions, she shouldn’t use him throughout this hoe “no emotions” part of her life. Issa tries to put it out for Daniel, however she doesn’t do a great job of actually telling him what’s up. Actually, I’m extra involved about Daniel being performed as a result of it’s already clear that Issa goes to mess this up once more.

Issa has by no means been an ideal character, however season two is holding her accountable for her flaws and errors. That is notably clear after we have a look at Issa’s job. Issa is unsuitable. Loads of readers have been upset about Issa’s actions on the college. Frieda is correct––she ought to be making their program as numerous and intersectional as doable. Issa’s makes an attempt to defend herself are weak. She is aware of she could be prejudiced, she calls herself racist originally of the episode. However, we even have to know that Issa sees it as one other concession she has to make at her job. We Obtained Y’all is just not a great program. The instructors in this system are Issa’s racially unaware and prejudiced coworkers (who don’t even imagine in college students’ desires).

The present has made it clear that they’re stuffed with prejudice and stereotypes. This system’s emblem is actually a gaggle of youngsters of colour in a white hand. Issa sees these errors greater than anybody, however works with them anyway. Total, she thinks it’s higher for teenagers to have this system than not, so she overlooks the informal racism of this system. This can be a concession Issa has to make on daily basis, so she’s extra prepared to miss the varsity’s racist principal if it means some children get entry to this system. Frieda isn’t used to that and he or she is being a bit naive about it. Frieda and Issa don’t even converse Spanish, how a lot does she actually suppose she might help individuals she will be able to’t even talk with? If she actually needed to assist Latino/a college students, she’d ask We Obtained Y’all to rent instructors who truly converse Spanish. So, she’s proper to name Issa out, however her callout is steeped in a little bit of privilege she doesn’t fairly see and Issa is having a tough time explaining that.

Then there’s Lawrence. Lurking Lawrence lastly will get the learn he wanted from somebody. Derek lastly makes Lawrence confront what everybody has been saying. He deserves a number of the blame for his relationship points and he ought to be a bit extra understanding of Issa’s expertise. He’s lastly in a position to asses the scenario as an alternative of simply getting indignant about it and I don’t suppose he was as performed with Issa as he initially thought. It’s additionally nice that his lurking offers us that tremendous video of Kelli consuming a ghost pepper.

Stray Observations

  • I hated the one-liners throughout Issa’s date. The horchata line was terrible.
  • Molly’s relationship together with her brothers was so actual and lovable. I hope we get to see extra of them.
