From breath of fresh air to strong exhale this episode is good.
It’s been a day since Zoey heart sang to both Simon and Max, so must confront them. Mitch’s (Zoey’s father) make nurse is having issues with his daughter Zoey must help. Meanwhile Zoey’s brother and sister in law continue to have marital issues.
The relationship drama between Zoey, Simon, and Max continues to be very grounded, for a show like this anyway. I’ve used the word reasonable because everyone is deeper and has more complex feelings going on other than drama. This is exemplified when Simon is confronted by Mo on Zoey’s behalf and in return Mo realizes Simon is just as confused and hurt as Zoey. The ending of the episode leaves it in an interesting place.
Max on the other hand is in a totally different plot as the 6th floor wants to recruit him. It’s odd to think Joan wasn’t the owner, but sure there is a higher floor. It’s fine, but odd to have someone who can appear and disappear like Batman, as well as be all secretive like it’s a espionage film in this series now, but it’s fine. That too is left on a cliffhanger.
The most interesting plot does concern Zoey as she tries to help the nurse reconnect with his daughter. The reveal of what the silence means is very good, and too is handled well. I mean it could be seen as ableist, but I would not know. The drama does feel genuine, and understand both sides which is all I can ask for.
As far as songs go Mitch and the Nurse have a haunting rendition of Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel. Happier by Bastille and Marshmallow is sung as a duet that really works. All the songs are fine. However, the surprise of an ASL song of Fight Song is very impressive. The song by itself is very meh, but making it a string cover with ASL as the “vocals” is good. It works for a very basic song if this is the first time you see something like it, as it is for me.
Always interested to see how everything shakes out in the next episode.
