Van's ordeal in "Value" tells an especially smart story about the burden of single mothers - especially black mothers who hold their families together.
lover started off strong before a single frame was shot by bringing in staff writer Stefani Robinson to assist on the script, the first to give a writing credit to someone whose last name isn't Glover.
I really like that Van is more fully human after this episode while still lamenting that the way they chose to develop that was to bring out a tired black woman trope and the tired female friendship as catty dynamic.
Excellent work by Glover and by Zazie Beetz, and I'm looking forward to seeing how (or if) I view [Vanessa] differently the next time she pops up in an episode that's back to being from Earn's point of view.
... undeniably relatable for anyone who's ever tried to keep a mildly acidic relationship from your past alive for no clear reason.
Throwing away the the two/three story system of the last few weeks, it's a single well-constructed, funny, and effortlessly smart story about Van, a character who's previously been pushed into the background.
