'Big Mouth' Season 4: Sucker for romance? Netflix animated series introduces new Bonnie and Clyde aka Jay and Lola
Spoilers for 'Big Mouth' Season 4 Episode 9 'Horrority House'
In Season 4, 'Big Mouth' gave us the ultimate power couple in Jay Bilzerian (Jason Mantzoukas) and Lola (Nick Kroll). Who would have thought that these two "absolute weirdos" were going to make the best teenage couple on the Netflix animated show? Jay and Lola are in equal parts crazy and adorable, and perhaps that is the exact reason why their relationship works best. Jay and Lola might have impressive chemistry onscreen and that is rooted in the great offscreen rapport between the voice actors Kroll and Mantzoukas. In Season 4 Episode 9 'Horrority House', they dress up in the cutest Bonnie and Clyde costume which will have you rooting for their relationship.
It was quite evident from the trailer that 'Big Mouth' Season 4 is going to see new couplings, and that Jay and Lola were going to be one of them. Jay, who came out as bisexual in the previous season, begins a new relationship with Lola. The two aren't at camp where the rest of the group is and away from them, they kindle their romance. From building mud pools in their backyard to hosting parties as a couple, Jay and Lola discover new avenues about themselves in the relationship. Even when some people around them discourage them from making it official, the two instead choose to listen to their hearts and stay together.
It is in Episode 9 when they visit a horror house, but find themselves thrown out after not having money for tickets. Chucked out from the very plans they made, Jay and Lola embark on a Halloween journey u like any other, which ends in a confession of feelings. Jay tells Lola he loves her, but she doesn't reciprocate. Heartbroken, he leaves the diner and 'cheats' on Lola with his pillows.
Lola, who hadn't said it back because of her fear of losing him altogether, tells him about it when she visits him later in the finale. Unfortunately, this relationship breaks up as Lola, angry over Jay's infidelity teases "war" in next Season 5. "You are so fucked next season," she yells at him as they part ways.
Jay and Lola were probably the best thing about this season. And we will be rooting for them despite their promises of war. It's not like we got to watch Andrew (John Mulaney) and Missy (Ayo Edebiri) patch up this season. At least the makers can keep Jay and Lola intact.
All episodes of Season 4 of 'Big Mouth' are currently streaming on Netflix.
