What I’m Watching: Barry

Barry: Season 3, Episode 2 “limonada” (B+)

For as much as he often pleads with people and tries to get them to see things from his perspective, Barry’s not a person who can really be reasoned with, as evidenced by his response to the idea of forgiving Jeff in the previous episode and his unwillingness to let Cousineau sit up front even though he brought him his change. It was actually very uncomfortable to see him show up on Sally’s set and demand that she do what he wanted, and then later to accept her apology nonchalantly without offering one of his own. That will surely come back to haunt him later, and at the very least it’s likely to tip Sally off to his darker nature. Chloe was disturbed enough to consider reporting it, but the fact that he doesn’t work there only means that it won’t be an HR matter but maybe a police one. Barry managed to score a job for both himself and for Cousineau, and they’re going to spending a lot of time together considering Barry’s quick movements in the wake of Cousineau’s daring escape from the trunk. The arrival of Cristobal’s father-in-law was a sharp disruption from his idyllic life with Noho Hank, and though he was able to successfully warn his boyfriend so that he could get his people out in time, it means the end of their relationship. Hopefully Noho Hank can find his way back to being friends with Barry, because losing Cristobal is not going to leave him in a good place, provided he manages to survive a potential war.
