The moment we have all been waiting for arrived tonight as we waited to find out exactly how Lawrence was going to get his revenge on Issa for “scratching an itch” with Daniel A.K.A. cheating on him.
Throughout the episode conveniently titled “Broken as F***” Issa was basically taking L’s on both sides. Her best-friend Molly isn’t really feeling Issa either. The two awkwardly tolerate each other during a weekend getaway with their two other friends and tempers eventually flare up during the trip.
Lawrence on the other hand is weighing his options but is understandable angry as hell with Issa. To try to get over it he has the obligatory “U Don’t Have To Call” moment, rounds up the homies and they hit the strip club.
During a lap dance where he gets a proposition for some sexual favors it seemed he began to miss his ex and gives her a call. He tells Issa that he does miss her and that they should talk when she gets back, Issa sees the moment as a great opportunity to fix her relationship and decides she can’t wait and heads back home that same night. Molly volunteers to get Issa home so she can talk to Lawrence. During the trip the two patch their friendship up and things seem to be going back to normal for Issa.
With one relationship repaired that just leaves things with Lawrence. Things are looking up once again for Issa or so we thought.
Lawrence arrives at the apartment ahead of Issa, when she gets there she is immediately relieved to see his keys on the counter. She heads into the bedroom and notices his pillow is gone, she turns to the closet and all of his clothing except for his Best Buy polo is gone!
We instantly zap to Lawrence giving the bank teller Tasha some of the angriest back shots ever!
Lawrence definitely got his revenge on Issa!
The episode ends with Issa crying on Molly’s lap as she feels things between her and Lawrence are probably broken beyond repair.
The immediate reaction to the episode was very swift, and of course there are contrasting opinions from the opposite sexes on how Lawrence handled the situation. Here’s a sample:
Well until season 2 of Insecure makes it triumphant return Issa and the ladies are going have to hold this L. See how men of the newly formed #LawrenceHive celebrated Lawrence getting his revenge in the gallery below:
