I know last week I said Insecure was moving a bit slow, but this week they speed it all the way up! The opening scene had me screaming at Issa and Daniel, ‘oh no baby girl, what is you doing?’, but in true form, it was Issa’s vivid imagination running wild. Whew!
Backwards-like, was by far the best of the season, I mean I know we’re only into Episode 3, but I feel like the show has regained its momentum. Like its name suggests, we get a front-row seat to Issa’s backwards like life decisions but also that of Molly’s. I love that we get to explore Molly’s professional life, with all of the homewrecker Dro scenes, I tend to forget Molly is a pretty-darn-good lawyer.
This episode takes us into Molly’s ‘dream job’, an all-black firm, and from the moment she stepped into the office, the first thought that ran across my mind was, this will not end well. I’m sorry, I call it like I see it! On the first day on the job, Molly begins to constantly make comparisons to her old job and eventually gets called out when her colleagues make fun of her. In later scenes when she discusses her work woes with her friends, they call out the obvious, you always got problems with your job girl! Which is true, but why shouldn’t Molly expect professionalism and the same standard at her new job? Needless to say, in my opinion, moving to the all-black firm was a backwards-like move, hopefully, she is able to raise the standard and implement all of the things the office lacks, or she could just start job hunting again.
This wasn’t really meant to be a review of sorts, but, I’m feeling good today, so I’m sorry if you haven’t watched as yet!
Sister Issa. Every episode, the chemistry between her and Daniel is ready to go BOOM! The sexual energy is just too much! She’s sleeping in his bed, daydreaming about sex, having cute conversations, taking him out to eat, it’s too much. In this episode we are able to see Issa make some real progress in her professional life, she is able to secure a new job as a property manager with a nice apartment to go along with it, but she almost makes the mistake of letting Daniel talk her out of it and good thing she didn’t. She gets to see Daniel’s petty ways bubble to the surface. I know this season was about toxic black masculinity, but whew, this is going to be a long one! Daniel has the nerve to throw all the things he’s done for Issa in his face because she gave him the advice he needed to hear. Pack, your things now hunny!
I love the growth I’m seeing in our favourite awkward girl especially in the last scene, I just hope she continues to grow and get her ish together because we are all rooting for her!
