Upon leaving, we see that Sally is ready to ease the ache of her circumstances by barely participating with Barry in dialog (comprehensible, as he is appearing like his taking part in the aforementioned YouTube video is equal to him educating John about Lincoln) and ingesting vodka straight from the bottle (… yikes). Later, after John hears an argument from his mother and father — and it’s right here that I’ll emphasize how badly I really feel for this child, and truthfully, wouldn’t be disenchanted if sooner or later earlier than the season is over, we study that is all some overheated fantasy in Barry’s head, versus the child being actual — we see Barry watching one other YouTube video, this time “exposing” Sincere Abe. Sally, in the meantime, is watching an previous pal of theirs — Natalie (D’Arcy Carden), on her sitcom “Simply Desserts,” teased within the earlier season. Although mentioned present appears fairly dumb, you get the sense even from this transient second that Sally’s not simply jealous of seeing Natalie’s sitcom as a result of it exists, however as a result of it is standard. (It must be, if it is 8 years sooner or later.)
Later, we see Barry, Sally, and John watching a filmed church service (the type that litters the airwaves on Sunday mornings), because the preacher emphasizes that “God acts on behalf of those that anticipate Him.” (That appears like a telling comment.) As Barry and John stroll by the fields later, we get a glimpse of some self-awareness on Barry’s half — when John notes that his mom “cries loads,” Barry agrees swiftly and notes that her kind of crying could be “loud and scary.” (I ponder why!) John, in the meantime, can not help however look longingly on the teams of different individuals within the discipline, as we get this wordless clarification of what have to be an immensely lonely life for the boy. (Once more — by all of this, my coronary heart aches for this child.) On the very least, John is ready to make a quick reference to Travis, as we see them taking part in catch later within the day. Travis compliments him on his skill to play, although the connection in all probability cannot go a lot farther — we solely hear John ask Travis if his mother “wears hair on prime of her personal hair” like his mother, however the reply might be no.
