But it’s Roy’s response that basically struck me, a slight tilt of his head to at least one facet. This is Roy’s “do I understand this correctly?” look, a lower-key model of the face he made to Phoebe’s instructor again in Episode 8 when she was trying to inform him how his swearing was affecting Phoebe.
I don’t consider Roy was thinking about what Jamie had carried out, but relatively about Keeley’s response to what Jamie had carried out: She hadn’t told him. Keeley and Roy’s first two confessions were about incidents that had simply occurred. The Jamie episode was something Keeley had stored to herself till now, and clearly had qualms about revealing in any respect.
My own confession: I’m formally fearful.
And was it simply me, or was the final shot of the scene, after they flip to face the photographer, an echo of the last shot of “The Graduate” (sure, one of many most broadly misunderstood movie endings of all time). I saw two people who had been thrilled with their envisioned future immediately questioning whether or not that future was theirs in any respect. I might almost hear “The Sound of Silence” enjoying within the background.
Someone, someplace — by which I assume I imply everybody, in every single place — must have additional despair hotlines set up in preparation for any doable Keeley-Roy breakup. I don’t imply to sound apocalyptic, but simply on my own, I’ll need to speak to as many as three or 4 mental-health professionals concurrently.
My fingertips really damage after typing this part.

First things first: I love Sam Richardson, the actor brought in to play billionaire Ghanaian inheritor, Edwin Okufu. (If you understand him principally from “Veep,” as I do, you’ll discover him unrecognizable.) From the second he acquired out of the helicopter, his joyous charisma was evident.
The bit about shopping for out the artwork gallery and filling it with actors was foolish. (I imply, a £1.2 billion inheritance makes him barely a billionaire.) The bit with the pop-up Nigerian restaurant was more believable. But it’s not likely these perks, but Edwin himself that seduces. He is a pointy, likable and persuasive pitchman.
