Episode Title: The Dinner Party
Original Air Date: May 12, 2017
Episode Number: 2×05
After welcoming the Jabbawockeez to his show, Dev struggles to find the right date to take to a dinner party thrown by his celebrity chef boss.
I think this was my favorite episode yet of this season because Francesca is back and she was such a breath of fresh air. Dev unable to be with her because she’s with Pino hurts me as much as it hurts him, lol. It’s really too damn bad and Pino seems to be a good guy so there’s no way Francesca is going to leave him, her boyfriend for 10 years, no matter how much she likes Dev. It seems to me that she might be feeling the same as Dev, but she’s not willing to act on anything. And good on Dev for respecting their friendship and not taking advantage of Francesca just because her boyfriend wasn’t there and because he has feelings for her.
That last scene was pure torture. I wanted to Dev to reply back with an equally cute and cheesy text because that text from Francesca was perfect.
Loved Bobby Canavale as Chef Jeff. He’s always great at whatever role he plays. I kinda wish that his wife, the brilliant Rose Byrne, would also show up here as Chef Jeff’s equally eccentric girlfriend.
John Legend being at the party was random, but totally cool of him to play for the guests. Ravi showing up to the party wearing a tux and being mistaken for a valet and a server was very funny. I thought the funniest part of the episode was his introduction to Francesca and Francesca just saying: “Francesca. Italian person. No companies.” I couldn’t stop laughing!
It was too bad that the second date with Priya didn’t live up to their first date. I guess it wasn’t meant to be.
It was great to see another actress from Billions show up on here (she was the makeup artist in the beginning of the show).
Lastly, I kinda want to visit the Brooklyn Museum. It looks amazing.
