Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Where Is Josh's Friend?
October 22, 2016 12:04 PM - Season 2, Episode 1 - Subscribe

Three weeks after the Season 1 finale, things are...complicated.

The opening of Season 2 goes dark fast, with Greg and Paula both confronting their addictions while Rebecca is freshly obsessed with Josh, trying to turn their uncomfortable roommates-with-benefits arrangement into true love no matter how little he reciprocates. Meanwhile, White Josh and Darryl are as usual happier and better-adjusted than everybody else put together #WhiteJoshFeather4Lyfe


This episode features the series' new opening theme, which shifts focus from Rebecca's denial to her fixation. It's also the subject of the (fantastic) stinger sequence.
Love Kernels is a takeoff on Beyonce's Lemonade album, especially Love Drought.
We Should Definitely Not Have Sex Right Now is exactly as hypocritical as you'd expect from the title.

BONUS LINK: The season 1 gag reel went up on YouTube this week.

The last two seconds of the new title sequence are the show in microcosm: a big showy gesture that most shows would immediately cut away from, but on this show are followed by mounting awkwardness. I love it.

When he inevitably finds out, will Greg blame himself? Should he?

I can't believe this premiered opposite the Hamilton documentary. Surely the vein diagram on the two audiences is just one circle.

It hurts so good when they really dig in on what a terrible person Rebecca is. We got a little glimpse of Greg, when do we get to see Valencia?

Hector and his "why are all my friends in love with this girl?" was awesome.

So glad to see this back! Love that they dove right into the painful awkwardness of the end of last season. Also: everyone is addicted to some bad substance/obsession/behavior! Love that they are going there.

Rebecca and Paula have such a healthy thing going. The ways they both depend on each other so much, it's almost... codependent?

Huh. I admit, I made that comment partway through the episode. I like this new Paula-Rebecca dynamic. More, please!
