The possibility arises to make a move; it is believed Paper Boi will be at a pajama party. This episode includes an angry black mob, naked frat boys snapping to ‘Laffy Taffy’ a Confederate flag and Earn completely coming UNDONE!
The 30 minutes come in three distinct acts. First, at the concert, tension builds when a simple misunderstanding escalates into an all-out brawl. Second, at the frat house, Paper Boi’s crew takes refuge. And finally, in the car, Earn and Tracy fight.
It coalesces into Earn’s explosive frustration, which speaks to Glover’s continued goal to share what it’s like to be black in America. Taken as a whole, it’s an episode that’s both painful and frustrating, and shows the contrasting worlds—specifically around southern college life. It’s a credit to Glover that he’s willing to, and capable of, putting these powerful and necessary discussions into a half-hour comedy. WATCH ‘Atlanta’ season 2 episode 9 BELOW!
