Thoughts on Awkward Black Girl Episode 10- Toya


Confession: I didn't want to blog about episode 10 until the second half came out today because I was so confused by part 1. SO confused. I was hoping that it was a bad dream that Nina was having. I totally didn't get it. I still don't get it. However, I have chosen to take it as them using their creative license for a special Halloween episode and leave it at that. The step scene though? Ummm... did I mention I didn't get it? Ok.

How happy were we to see our girl Bernadette make her big debut at 3:02?! You done good, girl! Bernadette was lucky enough to get a part in the newest episode and even spoke to Issa Rae...who told her to say hey to BGLU, I might add. Oh yeah. We're known in these internet streets. *Cabbage Patches into a Bankhead Bounce followed by The Troop*




Yall I am really disappointed in...wait...speaking of disappointment...Herman Cain just showed up on Jimmy Kimmel. I can't. I just... *turns on Weather Channel* Oh look it's going to be 74 degrees tomorrow. Moving on...

As I was saying, I am really disappointed in White J in this episode. I mean two steps forward, five steps back. I melted a little when J said that he was her male Ce Ce. Isn't that what we all want? Someone you can be your complete awkward self with? As someone pointed out in the Youtube comments, how did he forget her name? They have the same name! Not only that but the way he was looking at that other girl was a little suspect too. The lingering? I guess it's always something. If he was perfect it just wouldn't be fair. I will say this though: he's actually taken J out on a few dates. Fred's office datin' antics are for the birds. That's some old high school, we go together between classes and study hall, type mess. No sir. Guy who will date you > Office crush any day of the week.

So what say you? Are you still Team White J? Are you still Team Fred? Have you had it with both of them and are about to hop on Team A or even Team Baby Voice Darius (I mean, can he get some love)? What are your thoughts?

White J has some 'splainin to do! I really wanted to give Part 1 of Episode 10 the benefit of the doubt, but I couldn't really get behind it. I did like Part 2 and I really wanna see how it plays out. I'm still Team White J but if he doesn't get it together I might have to jump to Team Darius lol

I didn't read it as him forgetting her name, so much as not knowing how to introduce her. (girlfriend or whatever) Still White J for now but I did groan, no White J don't go for the sexy nurse...

After I stopped laughing about Jay wanting to smother her with the trash bag I came to the decision that White Jay will crash or burn in episodes to come. He obviously wasn't expecting this chick to be in town so I am giving him a bit of a stupidity pass due to the shock. That is obviously some unfinished business that he needs to finish, I am all for them introducing a third dude because Fred still hasn't really stepped up.

Patricia said...

Oh and not Darius, being able to communicate is required.

You completely explained my sentiment. I identify so much with Jay, her awkwardness. But when White Jay completely forgot about her like that, I was seeing myself--I had that happen to me. It makes me doubt who I'm attracted to really. But this episode did reinforce the known rule, don't ever give up a friend for a guy, not worth it...

I've been waiting on ya'll to comment! I thought part 1 was strange but there were some funny moments. I was looking for more in episode 2 but it was definitely better than 1. I was Team White Jay until this last episode though. How dare he forget J's name and act like she wasn't even standing there with him. Forget Fred! I was never feeling him. I don't know about Team Darius lol..that would be hilarious and very awkward.

Part 1 had me rolling and I accepted it was a special episode BUT it's definitely the weakest ep of ABG.

Part 2...I can't. I'm mad at White Jay for the obvious and J for doing what she did to Cece AFTER homegirl stayed at work doing her busy work. If J had just told Cece she was bringing White Jay to the party instead of ditching, then they would have been on their way and probably would have never bumped into Kristin. Goodness knows how ep 11 is going down.

I suspect there is some history between White J and Kristin (ex-girlfriend? ex-crush?) and he just didn't expect to see her and forgot his manners (that's my story and I'm sticking to it! lol)

Poor CeCe! Hopefully the friends can work it out. I'm so *likethis* with you on the middle school dating strategy the Fred's doing. Dude, take me out in public--you can keep the longing looks over the copy machine! LOL
