I'm sure that had to be the episode; not a streaker but rather one of the pledges.

Loved last ep...so hard to see earn being kicked by tracy, but man he kinda deserved it. Earn has been a prick all season.

True. Earn need to get into a fight to prove something and the final shot of him beat up was great. He really took the wrong path this season...i mean leaving Van? seriously man?

The punchline of that flashback episode was fucking brutal. Nice shout out to DBZ and Aquemini too. The VHS-like quality was a nice touch.

I thought the FUBU episode was the season finale, I was surprised to see a new one on my DVR. I'll watch it over the weekend.

I found it confusing at first too. Here's what I think:

Spoiler: show
Earn planted the gun in Clarke's bag in hopes to have him detained and thus have Paper Boi headline the tour, as it "should have been" from the start. Lucas, the agent, must have taken the fall for Clarke, claiming it was his bag when the metal detector went off. Paper Boi was grilling Earn for sabotaging Lucas, saying it's a cut-throat business, and Lucas giving Paper Boi a lawyer hookup/greasing him as a potential client was simply Lucas fighting for survival -- something that every agent in the business would have done. Earn then explained that he had planted the gun in Clarke's bag, not Lucas'.

The whole thing doesn't make sense to me, because even though they were begrudgingly opening for Clarke, having both artists on the bill would mean more concert-goers and merch sold anyway. :?

It's entirely likely that I'm missing something, but that's what I've got.

We finally finished this. It was excellent, but my favorite episodes were the more conventional character-driven ones, like when Paper Boi gets mugged and when he spends the day with his barber. The more outlandish ones, like Teddy Perkins and Oktoberfest, were good, but didn't quite hit the levels of absurdist/surrealist entertainment that I've found elsewhere lately.

I thought the whole second season was so fucking good. Every episode had something that i just love. And yes, there were of course some stand outs but for a season of 11 ep, thats a win.

I'd say the whole season was great, but Teddy Perkins was a high point. The flashback episode was also something special. Overall, I'm glad they spent lots of time not focusing on adult Earn, because he is probably the least interesting of the four main characters at this point

I didn't care for episodes 4: "Helen", or 7: "Champagne Papi", but loved everything else.
