Social Media Is a Great Way to Connect
2 November 2020 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Now her relationship with Biagio is over. Arabella seeks solace on social media. Live streaming her visit to a doctor at hospital. Being inundated by comments from strangers, some of them see Arabella as an avenging angel.

Arabella has also become aggressive in the wrong way. First to the hospital doctor in the way he labelled her ethnic grouping. Later at Kwame when Arabella realises that Kwame had sex with a woman without telling her that he was gay. Makes you wonder how much of your life history you need to tell people before you have sex. Would Arabella had treated Kwame differently if he was explicitly bisexual?

The episode is set in Halloween with Arabella dressed in horns from Maleficent. She is overwhelmed by the social media comments. It does add to her downward spiral as she needs to call a therapist on the emergency number.

There is a neat idea that everyone should take a break from social media. Arabella has become too preachy and lacked empathy since she started engaging on social media about her rape. This is displayed when she lashed out at Kwame.
