Episode Title: Sex Talk
Original Air Date: January 6, 2017
Episode Number: 1×10
When Penelope finds porn on Alex’s laptop, she struggles to talk to him about sex, but their reluctant conversation leads to a surprising discovery.
Oh, my heart. That was a beautiful coming out scene which made me tear up. The love and acceptance on Penelope’s face when Elena tells her that she sees herself loving a woman just brought so much joy within me. This show is going to give young girls and young boys a chance to see their story unfold and relate to what is going on with them and give them an opportunity to talk to their parents. This show is a gift.
I love Elena’s speech, too. “Then what I’m trying to say is that when I think about love, I see myself someday loving a woman.” It’s poignant and sweet, but not too sweet. Penelope saying “Why do I keep giving everyone the wrong sex talk?” after added just the perfect dose of levity needed during this scene. And then Elena asking if Penelope is okay with this…ugh, Elena, it’s more than okay! “Of course I am. I love you and I want you to be happy. And you should never be afraid to tell me anything about yourself.” More tears, man.
The beginning of the episode with the video and everyone finding out about it was HILARIOUS especially this moment:
“Alex was watching a racy movie.”
“More like Cars 3.”
