However it’s Roy’s response that actually struck me, a slight tilt of his head to 1 aspect. That is Roy’s “do I perceive this accurately?” look, a lower-key model of the face he made to Phoebe’s instructor again in Episode 8 when she was attempting to inform him how his swearing was affecting Phoebe.
I don’t imagine Roy was desirous about what Jamie had accomplished, however moderately about Keeley’s response to what Jamie had accomplished: She hadn’t advised him. Keeley and Roy’s first two confessions have been about incidents that had simply occurred. The Jamie episode was one thing Keeley had stored to herself till now, and clearly had qualms about revealing in any respect.
My very own confession: I’m formally frightened.
And was it simply me, or was the ultimate shot of the scene, after they flip to face the photographer, an echo of the last shot of “The Graduate” (sure, one of the broadly misunderstood film endings of all time). I noticed two individuals who had been thrilled with their envisioned future all of a sudden questioning whether or not that future was theirs in any respect. I might nearly hear “The Sound of Silence” enjoying within the background.
Somebody, someplace — by which I assume I imply everybody, in every single place — must have further despair hotlines arrange in preparation for any doable Keeley-Roy breakup. I don’t imply to sound apocalyptic, however simply on my own, I might have to talk to as many as three or 4 mental-health professionals concurrently.
My fingertips truly harm after typing this part.

First issues first: I love Sam Richardson, the actor introduced in to play billionaire Ghanaian inheritor, Edwin Okufu. (If you recognize him principally from “Veep,” as I do, you’ll discover him unrecognizable.) From the second he obtained out of the helicopter, his joyous charisma was evident.
The bit about shopping for out the artwork gallery and filling it with actors was foolish. (I imply, a £1.2 billion inheritance makes him barely a billionaire.) The bit with the pop-up Nigerian restaurant was extra believable. However it’s probably not these perks, however Edwin himself that seduces. He’s a pointy, likable and persuasive pitchman.
