This feels like “Angela’s Revenge!” Nah, lol but #HatinHeather finally gets her turn to shine on this episode and she can’t wait to throw a whole tree’s worth of shade at Nuri. We start with seeing the aftermath of the happy couple one week or so after their first romp. They are in absolute orgasmic bliss, evident by no food in the fridge and Nuri begging Yasir to give her kegels a break! Yasir is living life like it’s golden—driving Nuri’s Jeep 🚙 while she’s at work, staying at the crib chilling, even convincing her to let him dress her for work to put his “mark” on her—I love you Yas but you need to pipe down, literally!
Meanwhile at the office, Nuri gets a good lesson in friends and workplace advocacy when Norman gives Angela the nod for writing a script (one of two she negotiated in her contract) and expects her to share the opp with her bestie...she does not. The naivety of Nuri is clear, and a little surprising. Big shout out to @maraakil for showing that notion of women being forced to stand up for their worth at work or fold to the pressure of playing “nice.” We LOVE Nuri and her innocence, but she needed that lesson! In the words of Angela, “You’re my girl not my writing partner.” Then later saying, “this is a conversation our agents should be having, not us.” BLOOP! A rift was evident between the two from that point in the episode, especially when they ran into each other later at the movies and guess who is Angela’s plus one?? Keith!!!! 👀😳 Pick your mouth up off the floor.
Keith had an earlier encounter with a cute stranger at the local bar further confirming he’s only chilling with Angela for ‘deep cover-sake.’ She happened to walk in the bar to kill time before the movie, happened to kill the vibe between Keith and bar-boo, and happened to end up on an impromptu date. Where’s my popcorn 🍿?? Nuri definitely wasn’t feeling seeing them together and had a tinge of “oh you want my script AND my dude?” But Yasir shut that down quick and got her back to reality just in time to have Angie’s back at work when her beloved storyline was drowning fast. Nuri swallowed her pride and showed friendship...hand claps all around!#kslewismedia @owntv @loveisown
