The Afterparty: Sebastian

Sebastian, like everyone else in this season, has a backstory that is more complicated than it appears. Theme for this episode is HEIST.

I bought this story least all. Definitely my prime suspect right now.

In case it was driving anyone else nuts, the cater waiter is Bevers from Broad City

I continue to adore the details and specificity of the genre pastiches. Completely lost it at the heist supervillain Connect Four set.

I was not expecting that.

Who is the real Edgar? Is he a cold-blooded mastermind or a sweet bumbling genius who is being taken advantage of?

The actor who played Bevers was so effective that now I don't think I'll ever be able to give him a chance in any role. It's a shame. Like Joffrey from game of thrones. Just immediate hatred on sight.

I was also halfway through sourcing materials for a fancy connect 4 board until I realized how fingerprinty it would get in real life.

I also don't buy most of this story. But Sebastian is so shady that I think, by tv rules, he can't be guilty (of this. He's obviously guilty of other things).

Jack Whitehall's American accent was somehow hilarious and believable at the same time. I'm waiting for the final reveal that he secretly IS British and works for Interpol or something. I agree it's too obvious for him to be the murderer.

I loved the Yasper cameo! I guess considering the end of Season 1 this was the only way we could see him...

I was gobsmacked by how great Jack Whitehall's American accent was.

This could be the tipping point, after which we learn that Edgar was actually kind of a shit.

What if the killer is Aniq, and that's why Danner wants him with her?

Agreed, the Yasper cameo was pure gold.

This season is longer than last season - 10 episodes vs. 8. STICK THE UNCLE ULYSSES EPISODE IN MY EYEBALLS RIGHT NOW.

Sebastian is hot. I really enjoyed this. Poor guy, Edgar mostly outsmarts him, but I did enjoy the doubled card.
