Hella Perspective: Wines for a Wine Down (S2:E8)
Wow. I can’t believe we are here at the finale. It’s bittersweet. I want more episodes, not necessarily longer, but more. I wouldn’t mind 10 episodes. Ten is a good number for Insecure. At it’s hard it’s a comedy, but at times it feels like a drama. I am always rooting for them. Friendships are complex, hard, and like any relationship takes work. They are layered, nuanced, and when you find a good friend you hold on to them. Right, wrong, or indifferent defines all friendships.
On the finale, we see as they “grand closings and grand openings.” The scene with Issa and Lawrence was hard to watch, but I loved how they showed what you don’t see on television. A vulnerable Black man opening up to someone he loves. I’m glad the show didn’t give a happy ending to Issa and Lawrence. It made it real. The finale calls for bubbles. This week’s wine down features all sparkling for everyone. Read on to find out why.
Issa. Issa has been going through it. Not only with her relationships but also at work and at life. Her having to move in with her brother is hard. But, she still can celebrate because he could have told her to know. Let’s be real. She knows she couldn’t move in with Molly. Despite a great friendship we already know that yes we can be friends, but we can’t ever live together. Issa is celebrating her Moroccan party with Dibon Brut Reserva Cava Penedes. This cava is bright and has a slight sweetness that pairs well with all her favorites Molly ordered.
Molly. Oh, Molly. Molly makes me want to grab her shoulders and shake some sense it her. We all know someone who is their own saboteur. First, you don’t crap where you eat. Meaning if you stay at the firm leave your coworker alone. Just know. Yes, he is different. Yes, he doesn’t fit into your “should” box. Yes, leave him alone because at the end we know you really aren’t that into him. The bright side is Molly went back to therapy. Everyone can benefit from therapy if they do the work. I like seeing Molly going on interviews and to celebrate she knows her worth she is sipping Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne . This champagne is so smooth and delightful. It’s truly a celebratory wine. It makes you want to thank all the monks for giving us champagne.
Tiffany. Tiffany is the friend you love to hate. You can be annoying, rude, and snarky. And not the good kind of snark. The kind of snark that’s condescending at best. But, Tiffany is celebrating being pregnant. I can’t see Tiffany having a little boy so she’s toasting to hopefully having a little girl. Tiffany is toasting with Champagne Aubry Brut Premier Cru. This is a champagne, not particularly known as well in the U.S., but should be on everyone’s list. This is the wine Tiffany is sipping. She’s in the know and her friends aren’t. It’s also a possible name for her new bundle of joy.
Kelli. Kelli is trying to better herself. She’s working out, but she always keeps it real. Although she didn’t finish the marathon she tried. She gets an A for effort. Tiffany is drinking Gruet Brut Sparkling Wine in support of her running her nine miles before she had to stop. This is just the wine they need to watch the finale of Due North.
