'Now Apocalypse' episode 2 preview: With aliens and BDSM, Gregg Araki's show gets even more interesting
The second episode of 'Now Apocalypse' will see Carly explore BDSM with her boyfriend, Ford experience cuckolding for the first time, and Uly get obsessed with the alien
In 'Now Apocalypse' episode 1, we saw Ulysses (Avan Jogia), Ford (Beau Mirchoff), Kelli Berglund (Carly) and Severine (Roxane Mesquida) introduce us to their lives and their lifestyle.
We also met Uly's date Gabriel (Tyler Posey) who made an appearance towards the end of the episode as he shared a hot kiss with Uly before leaving for a gig. There was also the strange appearance of a reptile alien humping a man at the end of the episode. Now, in the second episode of the Gregg Araki show, we can expect some exploration into these characters.
The episode titled 'Where Is My Mind?' will show how Uly reacts to seeing the alien. One should not forget that he saw this alien when he was high and after he took a spill from his bike.
We can also expect some sassy comebacks from Carly when she hears about Uly's hallucination, what he calls encounter, in the coming episode. If her conversation with Uly in episode one about dating and sex is anything to go by, there is so much potential for a conversation about aliens and conspiracy theories. Ford will also battle with the concept of an open relationship while he continues to be oblivious to all the men who try to hit on him.
The second episode will also see Carly and Ford trying something new to spice up their relationships. While Carly is all for it and gives BDSM a shot, Ford is going to need some convincing by his girlfriend Severine to try 'cuckolding'.
Araki has also found a way to make this a commentary on how people explore new avenues, begin to try something different to make their sex life interesting.
While all of this makes for the majority of the screentime, it is Uly's obsession with the reptile alien (which probably doesn't exist in the first place) and his obsession for Gabriel, who doesn't respond to Uly's messages, that will make the episode entertaining.
While in the first episode he was unsure of what it means to have surreal dreams or have premonitions about the "end of the world as we know it", in the second episode, his research about reptile aliens will cement his belief that he is indeed psychic and that he can sense the future. The episode will also touch upon alien conspiracy theories.
Look out for a mention of Obama, Putin, Hitler, Queen Elizabeth and Beyonce in the conversation between Uly and Carly. That has to be the best moment in the episode.
