    I

    4/8 episodes 🙁

    It’s a 10 episode season. She might not be eligible for guest in the end cause on IMDB she listed for one more episode. I hope she is eligible because she was wonderful

    Death was perpetual in the LGBTQ community during this time period with so many gay men dying of AIDS. On top of that, you had numerous transgender women being killed. I think that is why I really liked this tough episode and it was necessary for the story Pose is telling about this community during this time.

    Pray Tell not wanting to take AZT made sense because there was such a distrust in the government who didn’t seem to really care about dealing with AIDS because of who was being affected by the disease.

    I really liked the conversations with Candy – it showed how death impacts each person differently. Powerful episode and necessary to this story.

    I’m still pretty jolted by the show killing off Candy like that. Completely plausible and time-specific, but I was under the impression that only a “violent act” and its aftermath would occur in this episode. At first, I thought it was all a misdirect since the corpse didn’t look like her, but that wasn’t the case in the end. Candy was peripheral enough to be a main character and has been around since the pilot. The funeral scenes ran too long, but I think I like things better as a tight hour for this show. Some of the dream sequences were very sentimental and overdone, verging on afterschool special territory in stretches that didn’t always feel earned, but I’ll admit that I choked up during the exchanges with Candy’s parents. I liked seeing the community rally together in tragedy, and that Stephanie Mills number at the was indeed fantastically staged and executed. Getting to that point though was … interesting. It’s Anjelica Ross’s shining moment on the series to date regardless.

    Ross is currently eligible with the 10 episode season. She is listed for episode 6, but IMDB is often wrong, so hopefully that is the case. Apparently, she has another high profile role to be announced soon, which is why she is leaving the show.

    Anjelica really took the bull by its horn and shined! Give this woman an Emmy now!

    I wish we had gotten a goodbye scene with Elektra though.

    I was fine until that Stephanie Mills scene. What a beautiful moment.

    Candy finally got her 10’s.

    One of the best episodes since the show’s inception! Even the guest performer who played Candy’s parents showed up and showed out!! And if that wasn’t enough, she had to rise from the coffin, with superb editing, to break into a on point lip synch number to “Never Knew Love Like This” that would make Stephanie Mills blush! All 10’s for this episode!!

    The episode hurt me so bad, a lipsyncer myself i had never seen a performance under that context in a TV show or film, and it just made me think so much about my own life.

    My favorite episode of the serie and i dare to say it’s the best, everybody gave amazing performances, specially Angelica Ross, who i had not cared at all because i disliked Candy, but this is prove that Pose deserves much love from the Emmy’s.

    Best drama on television. This show consistently captivates me, and every other show I watch thereafter just leaves me feeling cold. Pose better be sweeping the Emmy’s next year if they keep this up. Angelica Ross was sublime, and I am going to miss Candy.

    I would say that the fact you choked up with Candy and her parents (who were never explored) shows that it was all earned.  All the other characters we knew, but we never knew her parents, and they delivered big time. Given how Six Feet Under was praised for doing this, I’m going to say that Pose did an excellent job in the context of their show.
