This episode (written by Radha Blank) is filled with artistic flourishes, but as typical of the series, is weak on plot. It begins curiously enough with a cemetery tour where Nola Darling visits the graves of famous people (mostly artists). From there Nola is more reactive than proactive as she confronts various people in her life. Like other episodes in this series, this one reminds you of another Spike Lee film -- this time it's "Do The Right Thing" because of a incident that occurs in the middle section. If you're going to do a homage to another Spike Lee film, "Do The Right Thing" would be the one to do, but what we see here lacks the power of the original. It's just okay. As the penultimate episode of the season, you would expect it to leave you with anxious anticipation of the finale, but it does not.
