The way Alice's entire countenance crumbled as she fought against expressing what happened to her on tour despite Sumi's prodding was enough to wind you, and the dam broke, tears rushing down, as the last bit of Alice's restraint snapped made you want to reach through the screen to hold her.
Mrs: Kwan: We may be Chinese-Americans, but this country sees us as Chinese first, even if we are citizens, we're treated as guests here. Mr. Kwan: We survived this long by keeping our heads down and not attracting attention. Going public could make things worst. Make this man more angry. This time it was a soda but next time he could have a gun.
The racy clitoris joke made me gasp before giggling in sheer delight. But that high of shutting down this rude, angry man was short-lived when he cornered her while she was alone, shouted such ugly, racial slurs at her, and threw his drink on her.
But the Kwans had spent their lives in this country knowing that their citizenship didn't matter when people treated them like \"others\" and that their best way of getting through the day for decades was keeping their heads down and not raising more suspicion.
One of the downsides to the series making body positivity, mainly focusing on Davia as a plus-sized woman, her \"brand\" is that it's hard for anyone to concentrate on anything else when they continue to lean into that when Davia is no longer plus-sized.
That limelight soon shifts over to Stingray though during the afterparty. He brings all the kids back to his where he ends up in another spat with Greg. This time though he beats down Greg and gains a good cheer for his efforts.
As the episode closes out, Stingray heads back to Cobra Kai dojo and makes his play to be part of the team. Silver is incredulous to this and ends up beating the man down, laughing as he does the entire time, questioning his resolve.
\"Papa\" opens right where the previous episode left off, after Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) sends One hurtling through the Upside Down. After Dr. Brenner (Matthew Modine) appears behind her and asks what she has done, Eleven turns around and looks at him with fierce resolve before losing consciousness. Back in the present time, Nancy (Natalia Dyer) is still under Vecna's trance, watching Dr. Brenner tattoo Henry's wrist as a child. When Nancy tries to run, Vecna binds her to the chair with slithering vines and shows her the future: a fiery Hawkins is being split in half as the Upside Down pours into their homes. Vecna releases Nancy back to the real world, where she fills in the rest of the crew on the horrors she saw in his vision: A dark cloud was spread over Hawkins and downtown was in flames. She saw a giant creature with a gaping mouth, but it wasn't alone: there was an army of monsters invading Hawkins, their Hawkins, not the Upside Down version.
It turns out that the military swarming the compound is (sort of) a good thing: it gives El the opportunity to get out. Dr. Brenner lifts El (still slightly delirious from the injection he gave her) and manages to escape with her outside. He and El are shot at from a military helicopter, and Dr. Brenner eventually gets hit in the arm, leg, and back as he stumbles to the ground. Before they can take the final shot at El, she stands up and stretches her arm out, and you know what that means: shit is about to go down. El takes down the helicopter, bringing it down in a massive explosion just in time for the Surfer Boy Pizza van to come speeding down the road, reuniting El with Mike and Will.
As El is embracing Will, her shock collar unclasps. She turns around and sees Papa, just barely alive, who has released her. He reaches for her and utters his dying words, \"Eleven, I want you to know, I'm proud of you. So very proud. You are my family. My child. I've only ever wanted to help you. To protect you. Everything I did, I did for you. I need you to understand. Please tell me you understand. Please.\" He begs her, and she continues to look down at him, tears rolling down her face. But her face is hardened with resolve: she says nothing. She lets go of his hand and says, \"Goodbye, Papa.\" El gets into the van and tells the boys they have to get back to Hawkins, ASAP.
Now the bloody battle has been engaged as the Mayans and the Sons of Anarchy are at war for the first time in many, many years and the body count will only continue to escalate until one side is wiped off the map or some sort of compromise is finally reached. Judging by what the Mayans do in the new episode, it seems unlikely the Sons will be sitting down at the negotiating table any time soon.
The fighting is a one-sided slaughter for the most part with the Mayans getting the drop on the Sons with many members just cut down before they could even fire a shot. A few of the Sons do manage to draw weapons, which results in one of the Mayans taking a bullet in the shoulder.
At an undisclosed location nearby, a hood is pulled from the head of Miguel Galindo as he wakes up with the motorcycle assassin who came after him on the road before he was captured. She looks down at him before opening the door to reveal the person who ordered his abduction.
That night, Gilly sits down to talk to Rae when she brings up a tragic event that happened while they were serving overseas together. It seems a family was wiped out by their unit and Gilly has taken the brunt of the responsibility for what happened ever since.
Fred Johnson enters Medina Station, arriving at the command deck, where Ashford welcomes him warmly. Before the two of them can embrace, Drummer pushes Ashford out of the way and punches Fred in the face, admonishing him for giving Earth Marco Inaros's location and getting innocent Belters killed. Fred reveals that it was Marco who caused the ship to explode, not Earth, and points out that if Drummer had gone in to arrest him, she would have died. Ashford and Drummer confront Fred about how the way things played out, including Fred's statement blaming the UN, has turned Inaros into a hero in the eyes of the Belt and will get hundreds of Belters to convert to his cause. Fred confronts Drummer about how she allowed Inaros to live when they had him captured, but Ashford stands up for her. They keep arguing, until Ashford calms them down, and Fred tells them that, in exchange for the information on Inaros, he got the UN to take their battleship out of the ring space. Drummer is mad at Fred for playing Earth's game and quits, much to Fred and Ashford's surprise.
Carol Chiwewe, who can barely see as a result of the infection, calls to Holden when she sees his lights. Everyone but Holden is now blind and huddled together under protective covers that prevent the slugs from landing on them. He informs the Belters that their friend has died, and they begin to cry mournfully. He asks them to call him if they hear anyone wandering off. One of the blind Belters screams as he thinks a slug has fallen on him, and Holden has to sedate him in order to calm him down.
Holden finds Amos without his protective coat or his gloves, staring at a wall of slugs. When he tries to pull Amos away, Amos freaks out and attacks him, but being blind he is unable to hit Holden and falls to the floor. Holden slowly approaches and comforts Amos, and softly guides him back towards the camp. He sits Amos down and asks him to look his way, but Amos seems completely detached and unresponsive. Holden gets desperate and pleads with Amos that he can't lose him, to no response.
Drummer asks him if Fred offered him her job, and he confirms this but says he declined. He plans to hunt down Marco Inaros and kill him, which Drummer points out isn't a great start for a peaceful future, but Ashford asserts that Inaros is a threat to progress and lasting peace for the Belt, though admitting that he'd also enjoy seeing his \"pretty face floating outside the airlock\", which makes Drummer laugh and remark that old age hasn't changed everything. He tells her he will need a good XO for the mission, and that the job is hers if she is interested.
Arjun escorts Avasarala to a service held for the marines who died because of her decision. She begins to read her speech as instructed in the lectern but falters halfway, and goes off script to express her distaste for impersonal memorials. She tells the gathered crowd, which includes Nancy Gao and General McCourt, that she understands the pain felt by the loved ones of the fallen marines, as her son Charanpal was killed by the OPA, and she shares that, after his death, all she wanted to know was who was to blame so she could hate them. She tearfully takes that responsibility upon herself, stating that these deaths are her fault, that she has failed her constituents as a mother and as a leader, and that she is truly sorry. Gao and McCourt are both visibly moved by her openness and vulnerability, and when she sits back down, Arjun holds her hand.
Holden climbs back to the opening and kicks the panel down to walk out into a beach at the foot of the ruin. Naomi calls him and they share their respective good news, rejoicing that things are going well for once. Holden points out that all they truly did was just buy themselves some more time, and Naomi replies that that's what they will keep on doing.
Back in Don's office, he and Faye are discussing work. Don asks if she would like to get dinner with him but Faye turns him down, saying that she'd like to go on a planned date instead of going out after a work day like an \"afterthought.\" Don agrees and promises to take her out.
Don writes in his journal that people want more than they already have, which ultimately proves to be their downfall. He picks up his boxes and watches Henry mow the lawn as he leaves. Don is later seen putting the boxes in a dumpster, while Henry takes off his shirt in the kitchen without acknowledging Betty.
