Oh, did we mention that Andrew doesn’t accept Molly’s apology or thank her for the baked goods? Looks like he’s more offended that she left him alone in a bar than he is a fan of delicious pastries. His loss.
Finally, Issa and Molly leave. Molly confronts Issa and asks why she’s acting so, um, unhinged over this dude. Issa admits that Nathan made her feel like less of a screw up, and the realization that she’s deep in the throes of a funk hits her hard. She goes home and mopes. (Cheers, girl. We’ve all been there.)
Lawrence (Jay Ellis) too, it seems, is in need of a change. He and Chad (Neil Brown Jr.) hit up his place after a game of basketball, and Chad asks if he’s down to go clubbing. Lawrence says no because he has to be up early in the morning, but after some cajoling admits that he’s planning to go to church, which is pretty out of the norm for him. Chad says he’ll join him, so the next day they don their Sunday best and settle in for a sermon.
Surprisingly, it’s Chad who’s most affected by the sermon and rushes up to the altar to “get saved” (but only after pointing out all the fine ladies in the congregation). And while he has an easy time leaning into the whole religious thing, Lawrence is more hesitant. After the service, Chad acts like a changed man, but Lawrence is conflicted.
When a woman introduces herself to him, he admits he’s still on the fence and she argues he should at least stick around for the great post-church snacks, like cronuts. They go out for ice cream together and she tells him about how involved she is in the church. Later, she texts him, asking about whether he’d like to join a Bible study group, and he’s noncommittal.
