Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist 2×10, “Zoey’s Extraordinary Girls’ Night” isn’t the most shocking hour of television. The show doesn’t round out the episode with an eleventh hour twist that will leave the audience scouring the series for clues. It is, however, one of the show’s most meaningful episodes. And it is perhaps the episode with the most “season one” feel in the series’ sophomore season.
It’s a hard episode to tease, because the point isn’t so much about the surprises in store as telling an important, often overlooked story with honesty and compassion. It also doesn’t flinch away from or soften the topic for for the audience, to make it an easier hour of television to watch. And it is a difficult hour of television. Particularly for those who have experienced postpartum depression (PPD). This really isn’t about the surprise; it’s about the journey. But it’s a journey many, many mothers have walked in the past and continue to walk today.
It may be a difficult episode to tease without spoiling, but here are some things to look forward to:
- One of the best things to come out of the pandemic’s impact on television production is that we get more David and Emily on our screens.
- Sometimes the choreography on this show is so simple and powerful, it blows me away.
- I’m not sure any show nails sibling dynamics as much as this one does.
- Are family dinners ever not awkward? Not at the Clarke house!
- Bernadette Peters is a national treasure and can sing any song she wants.
- You cannot back an attorney into a corner if they don’t want to go.
- I love seeing Zoey try to implement some of the lessons she’s learned over the course of the show. She may need to work on her ability to focus on more than one at a time, though.
- The look on someone’s face after getting swerved hard? Priceless.
- Some people hear emotions through song; other people hear emotions through cuticles. It’s a gift and a curse.
- Trouble in paradise? Maybe.
- The boys’ night isn’t quite what I expected, but can I petition to join in next time?
- Maggie tries something new, but it’s unclear whether she’ll continue on this path moving forward. Or whether doing so would be the healthiest thing for her.
- Alice’s ability to gut viewers in small moments remains unmatched.
- No relationship on the show has been handled better than the depiction of David and Emily’s love for each other. I said what I said.
- It’s good to see Zoey in therapy, but it wouldn’t hurt her to ease into it a little bit more.
