I think Molly played the overprotective friend and told Lawrence to back off.

Lawrence doesn't know what he wants to do with Tasha. He doesn't know what he wants to do with Issa, either lol. I honestly have no idea where this is going. I think Molly is lying because his response wasn't shown, but I also am sitting here like why the fuck would any dude pour their heart out to their ex's bestie.

*was

And I'd hardly call what he did bouncing between two chicks. At this point his downfall is going to be based how the Tasha thing plays out.

With Molly potentially scheming it might not even be all on him.

He isn't "bouncing between" two chicks. His thing with Issa was a one time thing and the only time he's not been with Tasha in all this

Because he's still trying to be the Good Guy, instead of being real.

He won't admit to himself that Tasha is a rebound, when it's pretty fucking obvious to everyone around him. He let his homeboy Chad who is fine as FUCK call me guilt him into putting on a front that Tasha is more than just a rebound (because 'Good Guys' don't do that), and now he's actively stringing her along while KNOWING she has feelings.


And Tasha ain't off the hook, either. Everybody talkin about "I feel bad for Tasha" FUCK. THAT. Tasha KNEW from day motherfuckin 1 that she was trying to get with a man who was spoken for. Going to the flat screen section of Best Buy lookin for batteries and shit. Talking about "lets go get some jalapeno poppers" and shit.

You knew what this was, girl! It's your own dumb ass fault you caught feelings.

Lol, I'm not trying to take a side. I'm just enjoying looking into the mirror of Black life and calling things as I see them. Lawrence is showing growth as a person, more than any other character in the show, and he seems to honestly care enough to not want to completely fuck people over. Dude is trying and making progress. Considering how much you care about manipulation, scheming, borderline stalking, and speaking up about bigots, all we can say about Issa is that she has stopped her fall, at best. Like you said though, it will be so easy to turn on him depending on how he does Tasha. Maybe even regardless of Molly starting stirring the pot.



Also, I dont think this show is getting enough credit for its directing. The timing of dialogue, the camera cuts, and once again the music selection has been top notch. Chad and Issa's scene was great. The show is just in a higher gear compared to last season.

Music: ♪ I picked up the phone... ♫

I hate that this is the type of stuff that bothers me.

She should probably stay on TV. Especially with the way the tides are changing. She should get into directing some big name dramas (a la stuff like Mad Men) or maybe even try her hand at directing action (like GoT). I've been following her ever since she was making low budget shit with Beyoncé and she's come soooo far. She's a definite talent. The way she frames a simple comedy show like this really show it.


It really feels like black talent is getting so many chances in this whole BLM era. Insecure probably wouldn't have been on HBO 5 years ago. Feels amazing.

I agree.

I don't have a side or teams, and that's probably why I enjoy the show so much. All of the characters have flaws, none of them are perfect, which to me makes them all the more relateable and fun to watch. But it seems like since the finale, when the teamlawrence people got their life, there has been a backlash in the opposite direction of people feeling like they have to combat the men that are rooting for Lawrence by hating Lawrence, and hyper-focusing on his shortcomings. The other characters can do something silly or selfish, and it's LOL, but if he does it, it's FUCK LAWRENCE, with an non-charitable degree of scrutiny not really applied to the other characters.

It was funny watching it at first, but I hope it remains lighthearted and doesn't become, like, the point of people watching it. Issa and her co-writers are doing a tremendous job writing and portraying complicated characters and true to life relationship/career failings for black 20 somethings, and it would be kind of lame if her writing just gets reduced to typical men aint shit, women ain't shit back and forth that took place in the fucking 90s.

I feel she can do both TV and movies. I want her to be the next Ava Duvernay. Ava out here producing Queen Sugar and directing big budget Disney movies.
