We’ve now reached the penultimate episode of season 2 of UnREAL, and even I’m not sure how they are going to wrap up this whole season. Seems like they have so many story lines hanging in the balance, yet we only have two hours of the season left. Where do they take it? As we saw last episode, it looks like Jay is becoming a major player this season. Somehow he convinced Darius to come back to the show, something Rachel seemingly couldn’t do. Then again, she was hopped up on pills in the hospital, so I guess that might’ve been a little tough to do. But with Darius only trusting Jay at this point, and Rachel’s mental state completely out in la la land, exactly how does she recover from all this? And how does all of this dirt behind the scenes of “Everlasting” stay within the confines of the show now that we’ve found out Yael is undercover as a reporter and she’s trying to expose the show? (Really? Did that actually happen?) Since we already know UnREAL has been renewed for a season 3, it’s obvious somehow this all resolves itself, but man, I’m perplexed at how it’s gonna happen.
They are still trying to sell America on a love story with Darius, and after his “rescuing” of Tiffany at the last rose ceremony, and then their essential consummation of their relationship (moments after Tiffany had come on to Chet), it looks like Quinn has got the show back from Coleman. In this exclusive clip from tonight’s episode, Quinn begins to flex her muscles again…
However it’s safe to say Coleman is trying to use Rachel against Quinn now. We know that no matter what Rachel has been through (and after last week, we learned A LOT has happened in her past), she will be loyal to Quinn. I think we can expect whatever plan Coleman has to take down Quinn will blow up in his face. How can it not? Coleman isn’t central to this show. Rachel and Quinn are, and I expect that to be the case as long as this show is on the air. But what if Quinn gets pregnant? And where does that leave Chet? Hey Jeremy, while we appreciate you selling out the show in hopes of getting laid, is there any chance you redeem yourself in any of this? Tonight should be a doozy. Can’t wait to see how it all goes down.
UnREAL airs tonight on Lifetime at 10/9c.
