I was not prepared for how wonderfully cathartic that Sextina Aquafina song would make me feel.

I really liked the little detail in the limo scene that Diane was unable to reproduce the gun sounds from the song. Maybe I'm reading too much into what was just supposed to be a silly gag, but it seemed to me to be implying that she hadn't really listened to the song, which was reinforced later in the clinic scene when she was talking to the younger Sextina fan.

IAmUnaware, that's actually exactly the impression I got from this episode and later ones — that she's more interested in being an NPR-tote-bag-carrying know-better type than actually knowing about or interacting directly with the world around her. I think that's a very good catch on your part, because it seems 100% spot-on.

Mostly I was agog at how unflinching this episode was, but I totally LOL'd at "Maybe we can get Eddie Redmayne to play the fetus!"

"This week on a very special episode of BoHack Horseman, Diane and Mr. Peanutbutter grapple with the complicated moral question of an unintended pregnancy".

Fuck that noise, what a hilarious treatment of how America talks about abortion on TV. Or doesn't, rather. The parody with Sextina was outrageously extreme, which then sets Diane up to have an actual human, sympathetic story. I particularly loved the end on the couch when Princess Carolyn asks Diane how she's doing and it was basically "meh" and Carolyn just nods in sympathy.
