‘Sex Education’ Season 3 Episode 2: Maeve finally gets to know about Otis’ voicemail
The truth has finally been revealed and Maeve gets to know that Otis still has feelings for her
Season 2 of ‘Sex Education’ ended on a sort of cliffhanger as Maeve (Emma Macke) never got to know what Otis said in the voicemail he sent to her. Isaac (George Robinson), one of Maeve’s friends and who has a crush on her, deleted the voicemail and sent Otis (Asa Butterfield) away because he feels that he hurt Maeve badly.
Fans always wanted Maeve to know the truth and wanted her to get back with Otis. With everything that’s been going between the duo, it could be an ice-breaker for them. So, will she ever get to know about the truth? Well, to everyone’s surprise, she has finally learned the truth about the voicemail and it might change a lot of things between Maeve and Otis. In one of the scenes, we see Otis turning into Ruby’s (Mimi Keene) puppet for sexual adventures. He is wearing new clothes that don’t suit him at all. Meanwhile, Maeve finally admits that she likes Isaac, but is really scared to tell him that because she thinks it might ruin the friendship. Well, that’s a typical real-world problem. Most of the people, who are meant to be with each other, don’t get to be with each other because they are frightened to lose their friend.
Coming back to the series, Maeve visits Elsie and finds out her mom is also coming there. Her mom tells her to get out and she returns home Isaac finds out that she’s upset. He hugs her and they finally take it further by kissing each other. Isaac stops and tells her that when she and her mother had a fight, Otis came to meet her and apologize for everything that he has done to her. He also told Maeve about the voicemail and how Otis still has feelings for her.
That devastated Maeve and forced her to say that she doesn’t trust Isaac anymore. She also revealed that Isaac was different than others, but he turned out to be just anyone else and leaves the house. During the end moments, we find out that Otis and Ruby are in a serious relationship now. Otis tells this to Maeve and she doesn’t feel that good after hearing it. Maeve talks to Aimee (Aimee Lou Wood) about Isaac and says she doesn’t need a boyfriend when she has her.
The episode is a reminder of how good writing can do wonders for a TV show. It was emotional, quirky, and most importantly, covered all the characters. The situation between Maeve and Otis is going to change after Maeve got to know that Otis still has feelings for her. And even when Maeve is in denial, we know that Maeve still likes him as well. Will that revelation make their relationship better? And Otis’ new relationship will come in between the duo?
The show is in a very interesting place and we might get a lot of new things to see as the school’s new headmistress is going to introduce new school uniforms.
