In the words of the great DJ Khalid, it’s time for “anotha one.” This week, we’ll be recapping episode 5. Make sure to check out my recaps for the Premiere, Episode 3, and Episode 4 if you’re not already caught up.
Before I get started, I just want to mention that something happened last night, and I’ve been cheesing ever since. I’ve been live tweeting Grownish since Season 2 started and I’m not too big on celebrities, but Yara Shahidi is so inspiring. I follow her on Twitter, Instagram and I read her Essence article.
So the episode started with Zoey doing her little monologue on geniuses and what it meant to be one. There’s all this news about some mystery artist dropping an album and Aaron decides to throw a kickback for it.
I had seen this around social media but I hadn’t thought too much of it until I saw Kat gushing about it on her blog. I decided I should watch it, and boy was it worth watching. I finished all eight episodes one after the other. It was beautiful.
The basic premise is that Elsa’s friends are worried about her because she is still obsessed with her ex, despite the fact that he’s now in a relationship. He also cheated on her but that seems to be out of Elsa’s focus. In hopes of helping Elsa, her two best friends pay a male escort to stage a relationship with Elsa and eventually hookup with her, as the name ensues.
