Hella Blows: Insecure Season 2, Episode 6 Recap

Soooo season 2, episode 6 of Insecure had me shaking my head at all of them. Let’s talk about it!

Avoidance – Molly is working late when she gets phone call from Dro. He’s wondering what she’s up to. He’s calling and shooting the breeze about the game and things are awkward. Then she points out that the fact that they had sex got her tweaking. Her mom calls and she says she has to take it. Except she sends mom to voicemail and hangs up in general. She don’t wanna talk to nobody.

Bad Choice – Issa is now bus bound, and as she walks home, she texts Daniel to see what he’s up to. He got the text, and read it. He starts to respond but stops. OOP. Issa checks her email and sees something about an event called a “SEXPLOSION.” You know she’s going. In the meantime, there’s neighbor bae as an option. She gets cute, puts on a red lip and knocks on his door. He opens it, looking like he was just woken up by her thirst. She’s showing all her teeth as he wonders if he text her telling her to stop by. BRUH. She says she was just coming through since his light was on and she makes a move to walk in and he blocks the doorway. A woman’s voice on the inside calls out to Eddie and ALL THE WOMPS EVER.

Neighbor bae lies through his teeth, talmbout that’s his classmate. Talk about not being on the same page. Now I’m embarrassed for her. As he closes the door and she slinks back to her apartment, Daniel replies to her text saying he’s in the studio working that night. BLOOP. Hotation looking mighty slim tonight, kid. She gotta be feeling saltier than the pacific. She runs into Thug Yoda, who asks her if she’s going to Target cuz he needs some Bleenex and Blorox. Sir… LMAO!

Costly – Issa and Molly are at the car shop waiting to find out how much this damaged bumper is gon cost. Molly is lamenting about her sexcapade with Dro, because he’s her best guy friend, and how do they return to normal after that? She says she’ll just have to tell him that it was a one time thing and they need to go back to being just friends. She’ll have the opportunity that night when they meet up to watch a game together. Mechanic comes out and says the car will take a couple of weeks to fix, and it’ll cost $5,500. record scratch SAY WHHHAAATTTT? Who got them coins? Certainly not Issa’s broke ass.

Molly is giving Issa a ride, as her bestie goes off about all the shit going wrong. On top of the car issue, the hotation wheel has been squeaky lately. She’s wondering why all her dudes need someone else in their lineup. GIRL STAHP IT RIGHT NOW. They pull up to the drive thru, and Issa orders her meal, and tells Molly to handle the bill. Like the scrub she is becoming.

Compliment Sandwich – Lawrence is making a pitch on an app to his coworkers and his bosses, Cameron and Tim shower him with compliments. They even love his shoes! He goes to Aparna, one of the women he works with, and asks her opinion. She is straight up with him: his app isn’t cool and seems outdated.

He thinks it went well and she’s wrong. She points out that if they really loved it, they would have asked questions and asked for followup but instead, they gave him a “well done” cookie and sent him on his merry way cuz they don’t wanna offend him. Lawrence disregards her thoughts, though

Bodyroll – Molly meets Dro at the sports bar, and she is clearly bothered. She thinks their dynamic has changed and Dro laughs at her for being dramatic. Yup, they sure are different because they end up right back in her bed, doing the horizontal bodyroll.

Rejection – Issa is at home, dressed up and looking FAHN when a knock comes from her door. She opens it and it’s Nico. Girl… ok. She is rocking a tiny skirt, and her cleavage is all out, when she tells Nico her original outfit is in the laundry. Of course he compliments her and says what she has on looks good enough. She hands him wine, rebuffs his attempts at having conversation and turns on some sexy music. She grabs dude’s face and starts kissing him all aggressive. He stops her and says they should go to dinner but she finds that unnecessary. Afterall, she has one thing  only on her agenda: to get her pipes cleaned. She is not picking up what he’s tryna put down until he explicitly says he doesn’t want to have sex with her YET because he actually wants to get to know her. To Issa, that is a disappointment, and when he asks her if she still wants to go to dinner, she says “no.” Sis, why, though? Whyyyy?

Questions – Dro and Molly are chatting post-romp. She’s all cuddled in his lap and they’re holding hands, talking about how this is gonna work. Molly wants to know the logistics. Is he seeing other people (besides his wife and her)? He says he isn’t. Can she see other people? Yes, she can. Dro says the open marriage thing was Candace’s idea. Well then.

Kid Gloves – Lawrence goes to see his bosses about his app pitch to see if they have any other feedback. He even points out a weak part of his presentation, and they say it was good. He asks if they have any concerns and one of them mentions privacy but backpedals without finishing his thought. They then fire him with more compliments and it’s just a lot. They are treating Lawrence with baby gloves and he finally sees it

Head Game – The girls all go to sexplosion, where flavored condoms abound, d*ck  cakes are in the building and sex-positivity is the agenda. Molly grabs a handful of condoms, cuz if she STAY ready, she ain’t got get ready. The woman at the booth asks them if they wanna sign up for a  tutorial, and they do. Tiffany says she can teach the class cuz that’s how good she is, while Kelli says she doesn’t do it anymore after encountering smelly nethers. Issa says she doesn’t do it because she has really big teeth, plus it’s too intimate of an act.

Issa also thinks men think you’re a ho if you do it. Molly doesn’t mind doing it once a man has already giving her some. Tiffany tells them there is power in giving head, and she is the only one amongst them with a ring. OH DAMB. Ok!

Molly gets another call from her mom, and let it go to voicemail.

Acceptance – Lawrence goes to Aparna to tell her she was right about Cameron and Tim not liking his app (WooWoo). But they couldn’t say that to him because he’s Black. Aparna says having boobs make them weird with her too. Essentially, techbros don’t know how to deal with anyone who isn’t a white man. This app that Lawrence has been working on for years, is now dead. PIVOT. Do something else, dude.

New Thing – Issa meets up with Daniel at his place and asks why he’s been so busy. He says he got her something, and it’s her favorite bottle of champagne. They start kissing and quickly get to getting nekkid. Issa shocks Daniel when she drops to her knees, undoes his pants and takes Tiffany’s advice. WELLLLLLLLLL.

Interruption – Molly is in the tub getting handled (coughs) by Dro when his phone vibrates. He says he gotta go because Candace locked herself out their place. She’s about to get out the tub but he tells her to stay because the room is paid for. They make plans to see each other the next week, but as he walks out, Molly is feeling some type of way. Yeah, this is messy.


Pocket Rocket – Issa is enthusiastically going down on Daniel and it is going so well that he rockets on her face. I coulda fainted right then and there because WHAT IF IT GOT IN HER EYES?!? Actually, some did get in her left eye, and she spazzes out! She’s pissed off at him and he says he didn’t even ask her to do what she did. She throws his shirt at him and storms out. Holding a napkin to her eye, she gets into an UberPool, reassessing her life, hopefully.

Issa gotta find some chill, because when she doesn’t, it blows up in her face. Literally. Her insistence on forcing a hotation is getting her in terrible situations. Now she has a $5,500 fix to her car because she was looking at a d*ck pic as she drove. She had three encounters with men this episode, all in an attempt to get laid and she got humiliated in each situation. She then does the thing she says she never does and ends up with man juice in her eye. If all of those aren’t signs that she needs to put her Love Pocket on ice, I don’t know what is.

And Molly. Well, there she is, slowly falling for Dro. You would be a good ass lie to think she isn’t gonna fall for her friend, who also happens to be a perfect fit for her, with the exception of the glaring fact that he is married. No matter what she thought she was gonna tell him about them remaining just friends, she ended up in bed with him again and again… and again. But when the reality sets in that she’s just a substitute to the person he’s made an oath to, her feelings are gonna be real hurt. In fact, they’re already starting to, as Dro goes to his wife’s rescue in the middle of their tub play. MOLLY, YOU IN DANGER, GIRL.

Stop gif

Lawrence and this app of his. The app he spent the 2 years unemployed and sitting on the couch developing. Basically, the app is shitty and he doesn’t have anything to show for it. It’s like that friend of yours whose dream it is to be a rapper but they ain’t got no swag. Apps are the new mixtapes. Really and truly. So what does he do now? Either way, he should be thankful for Aparna, who was good enough to tell him the truth. BUT I caught that little pregnant pause they had. And I was like NOOOOO. Y’all better not start nothing. Which means they probably will. SMDH.

    I really don’t understand why Issa got so mad at Daniel- man told her what was up- if you don’t move out the way what you expect to happen? Issa was just straight trippin the whole episode. Seconding Skegeeace with Issa having a tall ass glass of sitchassdownforaminute. for real..damn sis.

    And Molly-run girl run- his wife already don’t like you…oooh..this is gonna be bad…

      That’s what I was thinking. Issa freaked out…and he TOLD her what was about to happen! I was expecting her head to start spinning any second. :/

    Does anyone think Dro is lying about being in an open relationship! Asking for a friend

    • Lp
      August 28, 2017 at 4:55 am

      Yes! I keep saying he’s lying and this is going to end sooooooo badly.

    • TippyTumbles
      August 28, 2017 at 11:55 am

      He is totally lying. Like I honestly believe that his long ass torso is just his body physically accommodating all of the lies he has told about this open relationship.

    Love your recaps, Luvvie. FYI – her name is Annapurna, not Aparna, although she does not pronounce it correctly which is really too bad.

    • Amita
      August 28, 2017 at 2:51 am

      Nope, my bad, I heard it wrong. I went back and watched it with captions. Still not pronounced correctly but okay!

        Yeah it was Aparna, but I have never met and Indian girl that spelled it like that. Maybe “Apurna” but oh well. I’m wondering why she had that actress and not Sujata play her character

    August 28, 2017 at 7:47 am

    What more is there to say, except ALL OF THE ABOVE? Seriously, why is Issa so thirsty?? So you had a bad break up. I’m a little older, but is the 2017 remedy to that to have all the secks you can possibly get? I’m not saying women should ignore that part of themselves, but I’m not getting nekkid for all these dudes!! I wonder if Dro’s wife knows she’s in an open marriage. I don’t truss it. When Gawd brings you the man of your dreams, he ain’t gonna be some woman’s husband.

  7. ummmhmmm

    I don’t think Dro is lying about being in a polyamorous relationship. I believe his story, however I do NOT believe that he has been honest with his wife about Molly and their affair. Polyamory requires that parties be honest with one another about interactions, flirtations and exchanges and I think he is hiding it from his wife because it’s Molly. I think Dro has had a thing for Molly and I am pretty sure his wife knows it. I also do not think Molly is built for a polyamorous affair as the main or side. I think a great arc would be the wife inviting Molly into a relationship with the three of them.

    Issa mess. She is trying to hide her feelings and loneliness in physical interactions and issa not gonna work. She will end up breaking down and Lawrence is going to build something real with Annapurna. They have similar goals and dreams and they already have shared intimate honesty. Issa gonna work.

      Every couple has their own rules, nothing is “required” of an open relationship that isn’t laid out by the couple themselves. Some are totally open, others are don’t-ask-don’t-tell, some are a combination. I think Dro is being honest, maybe Candace doesn’t want to know who he’s with. I agree Molly doesn’t have what it takes to be in an open relationship. But I love that polyamory is a storyline!

  8. Niki
    August 28, 2017 at 11:42 am

    At first, I thought Dro was lying about his open marriage since Candace hasn’t been around on screen to back up his claims, but now I think he is telling the truth. Molly is not cut out for that kind of thing and really should have backed away but #dicktoobomb for her to stop. She has tumbled down the flight of stairs known as “being the other woman” and she’s wondering why she is feeling some kinda way.

    Lawrence and that goofy-ass app! Dream new dreams, my brother and let that thing you’ve been wasting the last two years of your life on go.

    Issa is another person who isn’t cut out for what she’s trying to do. Hey, she had been in a relationship for 6 years, so by all means she should drop down and get her eagle on, but she’s going about it too thirstily. And the head incident with Daniel–stuff happens when you do the do (and often times messy stuff) — she could have realized it was an accident and laughed it off while waiting for her eye to stop jumping but she took her anger at herself and took it out on him. She needs to take a knee for a minute and reassess.

      Yes! Lawrence is the man version of the kid from season one who was like, “When I grow up, I’mma buy me extra batteries!” Aim higher, Lawrence.

    LOL. You had almost choke on my black-eyed peas I’m eating for lunch! Your recap made something so embarrassing for Issa hysterical. (It didn’t have to be embarrassing but you know, Issa.) And thanks show, for depicting how awkward sex can be sometimes, esp. with a new partner.

    I agree with everything you said. Dro is perfect for Molly. That’s the one pairing I see on the show with real chemistry and rapport. Maybe it is what Molly is ready for. She isn’t ready for a real relationship. She won’t talk honestly with her therapist, she couldn’t handle that her dad made a mistake and her mom forgave it, and she’s considering moving to Chicago. She’s not ready for a man who really wants to settle down so she picked an unavailable one. She’ll fall for him but I bet even if he left his wife for her (where the heck is that woman?) she’d be turned off. It’s MOLLY.

    I hope she called that black lady therapist back. And gifts Issa with a few sessions. 😉

      I like the chemistry between her and the black lawyer. To me it depicts the slow build that real relationships can take before they become romantic. It might be a dark horse, but that’s a storyline that could pay off for the duration of the show.

      • Autumn
        August 31, 2017 at 10:48 am

        You mean the black lawyer in Chicago? That means eventually Molly would leave LA!

        Hmm . . .

    I like this show because of the awesome storylines, among other things but the sex scenes are too explicit for me to watch. Got HBOnow just to watch Insecure, so I guess maybe I’m just not familiar with how much nudity and sexually explicit content are in HBO shows. Can’t they tell these stories without as much nudity and sexually explicit content?

    • Rachel
      August 29, 2017 at 9:51 am

      totally agree with you! this is exactly how I feel. the writing is brilliant; I don’t know why they have to be so explicit.

      • V-Boogie
        September 2, 2017 at 11:47 am

        I agree, too sexually explicit. They could still keep the storyline without showing every sex act. And blow job scene way too much–Also use of the word nigger when it would be funnier using other words.

  12. Tami

    I wish Issa would slow down with the sex…She is starting to come across as a little bit too desperate…Molly situation I definitely would not want. Dro is fine & married…She should have left him alone. It’s only going to bring heartbreak.

    With Issa, the reason why the hotation isn’t working for her is because she’s coming at it too hard. It’s a (fake) scientific fact that whatever you want the most from a men will be the last thing you get from them. You want a serious relationship? All you will get is bootycalls. You want a casual fling? Dude is gonna catch feelings and want to lock it down. You want to be left alone and work on yourself? Dicks come flying from every direction like arrows in a martial arts movie.

    Something tells me Issa (the character) hasn’t learned her lesson yet. She definitely didn’t learn anything from that give good head seminar and remember to put a bubble gum flavored condom on his penis before she went down. If she had wrapped she’d have 20/20 vision to see she’s making bad choices.

    • Erin
      September 19, 2017 at 3:00 pm

      LOL!! This response was great!! And soooooo on point!! Love the 20/20 vision remark – so true!

      And sad but true, you never get from men what you want. Although I have been working on myself for a while, but the dcks ain’t flying!! Lol!

    I didn’t like the scene with Nico and am following the Issa character increasingly unlikeable. I totally get the why of her doing what she’s doing but she has all of the grace of Godzilla rampaging in Tokyo. It’s not pretty. If the situation were reversed with Nico, she’d have decked him and told Molly that he was getting rape-y. I think Molly isn’t the only one in danger

  18. Woo43

    Issa needs to go sit down somewhere and start focusing on getting her coins together. It is obvious she is working a going no where job and she won’t even focus on getting the promotion that may bring some extra income. Molly is her girl but she is starting to treat her like an ATM machine which is going to put a strain on their relationship after a while.

    I think if you decide to go down on a guy when you normally dont… you should be prepared for anything! Especially coz having him you know is the main goal for giving a guy head..right? that being said Issa girl this hoetation just aint for you! its like you are a peguin trying to fly, yes you have the equipment for it… you have or at least think you have the mindset for it… but pay attentionn to the results it just aint working! and that comment Issa made about why her guys in her hoetation gotta have other girls in their line-up…thats just dumb reasoning.. Well what am i talking about NOBODY has proper reasoning on this show! But i love it though!
