No... you guys don't understand this episode it's great.
18 January 2020 | by hotrobinproductionsSee all my reviews

This is not a story that needs to be pushed. I think season 2 does even better than the 1st, the fact that it takes a sort of a backseat while it pushes the narrative even more of the supporting characters IS VERY STRONG. I love getting invested in even the characters I found to be annoying like the bullies... like the popular girl who got her virginity taken away by the main character. She was always just a comic relief or villain type but they even have depth this season. It's like every character has a BIG role to play this season and I love it. This season isn't about OTIS trying to get with Maeve right away that's what we want, it's about him coping with his mother being awkward taking his love away by going out with her father, invading his school, it's about Otis having to deal with his dad who is always a fraud, it's about Otis having to deal with HIS issues including Maeve and his ex. He's not just going to jump into maeves arms and live happily ever after and I'm GLAD Netflix has the balls to not give us fan service and actually push compelling narrative forward.
