Season 3, Episode 11 – “Listen” – fr


Most of Jon’s Friends Attend Black Lives Matter Protest This Week A million little things, which makes victims both physical (Regina – though scary, she ends well) and emotional (Eddie and Katherine – definitely not well). George Floyd’s gruesome death at the hands of Minneapolis cops becomes a way for the ABC drama to expand on its earlier conversations about race.

It’s a sobering hour. Read on for the highlights of “Listen”

NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE | Flo and Walter come to Regina and Rome’s house to meet them and Tyrell before heading to One Day, where they will meet everyone else who will be making their way to the demonstration. But Walter surprises everyone when he announces that he has no plans to walk because he doesn’t think it will change anything. “If you can find a jackhammer big enough to break the foundations of this country, then I’ll go,” he said. “Because it’s the only thing that will make the difference.”

Just then Gary calls and has a bunch of boring questions about the day’s plan. Rome is exploding. “You understand that it is not ma protest, right? he slams. Gary apologizes, saying he was just trying to help. “The last time you tried to help I ended up in the back of a police car,” Rome replies, then ends the call. A few minutes later, Rome tells Regina he’s not going to the protest because he doesn’t trust himself at the moment: if a cop did anything to get him to leave, it would be BAD. So she gently tells him to do whatever he needs to do.

Before the ladies and Tyrell leave, Rome shoots the teenager to make sure he doesn’t engage with any law enforcement officers. “There are police officers out there looking for a reason to kill you,” he said deadly. “Young man, don’t give them a reason. “

As Walter and Rome sit on the couch, Rome explains to his father how part of his depression stems from feeling the world makes him feel like “an unwanted guest in my own house” and how he wants to protect Tyrell from it all. let the feeling happen to him. Walter stands up abruptly and says that in fact he is go to the demonstration: “I’ll be there for you. “

OH HI, ALAN! | At One Day, Katherine and Eddie are surprised to see Alan introduce himself – Tyrell invited him. It won’t be awkward at all! Elsewhere in the restaurant, Darcy asks Gary what his name was “Javier” in the school video they watched in the previous episode. In short: He was born Javier Mendez Jr., his father was a guardian at his elementary school, and the kids made “very racist and horrible” jokes about his family growing up. In the summer before high school, Gary met a cool camp counselor named Gary and adopted the name on his first day of high school. Darcy points out that while Gary had a chance to tell the world how he wanted to be seen, Rome never had that choice – and maybe that’s where his anger came on the phone earlier.

The group goes to the demonstration. Theo gets lost for a minute or two along the way, and when he returns with the help of a stranger, the dude assumes Alan is Theo’s father. Oops! (Eddie later apologizes to Katherine for not being more aware of what she and Theo go through as Asian Americans.)

Everything else is going well… until Walter calls Rome: Regina is injured and has been taken to the hospital.

‘YOU ARE MY WORLD’ | Here’s what happened: someone sprayed pepper spray and everyone started running. A man fell and as Regina was about to help him, a police officer knocked her down and her head hit the sidewalk. Rome is agonized upon arriving at the hospital and apoplectic when COVID protocols mean he cannot come in and be by Gina’s side. But Tyrell stays calm and asks a nurse to ask Regina to call Rome from her phone; when she finally does, Regina is a little crazy but otherwise fine and about to be released.

After Rome hangs up, Walter asks if he’s okay. Rome begins to sob and Walter hugs him.

Gary walks past the Rome apartment that night to apologize for not really understanding what his friend went through, even after Sophie’s softball game incident last season. “Coming here is the beginning, the beginning of me trying to do better,” he promises. Rome is joking with him, and they look good. Then Rome walks into the bedroom, where Regina freezes the bump on her head, and tells her that her injury gave her a little taste of the terror she must have felt when she found out he had tried to. suicide. “You are my world,” he says, echoing what she told him a long time ago, and they kiss.

So her tenure as Dr. Stacy’s radio advisor comes to an abrupt end after the producer interrupts her while she was trying to match a black listener with a therapist who would be best able to help her. Maggie resigns. Dr Stacy smokes.
