‘Insecure’ Recap: Obsessed-Like

As the title perfectly suggests, Issa gets a little crazy this week. More accurately, she’s become obsessed with tracking down Nathan after he seems to have ghosted her. Especially since she doesn’t have a full-time office job anymore, she has plenty of time to occupy her thoughts thinking about where Nathan is and when he’s finally going to text her back. When you think about it, it’s understandable that she’d be upset that she’s been duped by someone who was seemingly Prince Charming. He’s charming, funny and emotionally available – the perfect package. Then, when you really think about it, the sheer ridiculousness of Issa obsessing over this man she didn’t actually know that well or for that long, despite intimate time in pools and Ferris wheels. If it somehow comes down to going to his house and going through his room while he’s not home, he’s probably not the right guy for our girl. And she’s definitely made it clear that’s she’s not good for him, either.

‘Insecure’ Recap: Fresh-Like

This week, Issa moves into her new place, leaving Daniel behind in his apartment. Of course, it’s crazy that she stayed there for so long, but at least she came to make the right decision on her own rather than be thrown out. And what better way to consummate a new journey in a new apartment than a few housewarming gifts from your best friend. Though, the property manager job that’s attached to her place is sure to provide more laughter for viewers. Back at We Got Y’all, Freida gets their boss to let Issa go back into the field. Issa may have been happy in the field before, but this news doesn’t offer her dissatisfaction any resolution.

‘Sharp Objects’ Recap: Ripe

TW: Self Harm, Alcoholism, Sexual Assault

“Shit, still in Wind Gap,” Detective Richard Willis (Chris Messina) mutters as he wakes up in his sweltering hotel room. Yes, Willis, we are still in Wind Gap and we’re now halfway through Sharp Objects. The fourth episode in the series is a kick to the face, addressing sexual assault, sexual tension, and the festering pain of the Preaker-Crellin family.

Adora is still whimpering about her hand, which she cut while trimming her roses. The small flesh wound is now being used as an excuse to have her husband, Alan, cut her breakfast and to cancel her social engagements. This means Camille must go meet Jackie (Elizabeth Perkins) and friends alone. The older women are just as gossip-focused as the rest of the town; No one is safe from their sharp tongues.
