By short-changing the dynamic that has drawn viewers in the first place - the caring, complicated friendship between Issa and Molly - that leaves the show with a hollow center it needs to address going forward.
Issa Rae has managed to keep the show focused on magnifying the small details of daily life. We enjoy following these characters because many of their trials are our own, and at the same time they capture African American life in modern America.
It's very smart and incisive about a lot of things, and it's also serving up beautiful people...at heart, this is a show about economic struggle, and dating, and Los Angeles, but it's really a show about female friendship.
Molly and Issa aren't those girls anymore, but they're not the people they want to be quite yet, either. That space in between is what Insecure is so good at exploring, and season three is stronger than ever.
The sumptuous, symmetrical overhead shots of South L.A., the impeccably curated soundtrack, the effortless chemistry between cocreator-star Issa Rae and her costar Yvonne Orji-everything is right back where we left it.
