From comedic conflicts to long-awaited resolutions, "Ready-Like" moves Insecure's third season arc forward in satisfying fashion.
In fact, it simply reminds viewers that UnREAL is resorting to desperate measures to tie up its loose ends as it cuts loose contestant after contestant with barely a story arc found on its burn-it-down eight-episode bang-a-thon bonanza.
Everyone shows up at Tiffany's baby shower (including Lawrence, Dro, & Candice) and the vibe is awkward. The rift between friend groups continues to grow.
I appreciate the complexities of life being addressed head on and people who work through their issues. This gave me all of that and more!
We caught up with what Lawrence has been up to, which was mostly sleeping around with women.
Childbirth is somehow portrayed as more of a disruption to their friendship than say, Tiffany already being married, or Molly's dedication to her career, rings a little untrue to me. Their handling of it feels immature.
The overarching theme in 'Ready-Like' seems to be that people move on when you aren't there for them.
"Ready-Like" is incredibly well-scripted. It doesn't just give us the Tiffany, Kelli, Molly, and Issa confrontation we've been waiting for, it also re-introduces Lawrence in an incredibly satisfying way.
Episode six... was the night Insecure's writers not only took advantage of the emotional investment viewers have made in the characters, but also the shared experiences that so many Black millennials experience in love and relationships.
Following Tiffany's honest conversation with Issa about how pregnancy is affecting their friendship, it's refreshing to see this dynamic from another angle.
