They crosstalk and yell and it is fucking harrowing. So very well done. Their separate breakdowns and the echoes of their yelling.
Sasha: "I don't need this!"
Sasha: "I'm going out for cheerleading."
Fanny: "You can't do both. Get the fuck out."
Fanny: "Boo, Carl. Dance."
They dance. But we don't see it, because this show is weird, and because this episode is over.
Godot hits on Michelle, Sasha gets a talking-to, and Carl finally kisses Boo. What did we think this week? I kinda liked it. It felt like it had a structure, even though it didn't really, and there were a lot of funny interactions. This show is so all about the chemistry that when it's off -- Michelle and Truly, for example -- it's really off. But when it's right, it's golden. And much of this one, I'll admit, was exactly that.
