Susie opens up to Midge
Undoubtedly, this might have been the hardest and most vulnerable moment for Susie in ‘The Marvelous Mrs Maisel’ so far. She is often portrayed as the tough cookie who doesn’t care about anyone or anything, but here’s why. ‘The Marvelous Mrs Maisel’ Season 5 Episode 9 opens with Midge bailing Susie out of jail after she was chased by cops post a drunken night…and hungover morning. As Susie and Midge sit down to talk, Midge asks her about Hedy and the whole deal, which is something everyone was dying to know about.
Susie confirms that Hedy and she were together in a romantic relationship back in college, and several promises were made. Hedy and Susie were an unlikely couple, as Susie describes them. Both were incredibly different from each other, and Susie was convinced Hedy was way out of her league. Susie also gives Midge a few details about their relationship, about how they never met each other’s families and the promises Hedy made about the two of them moving away and adopting children someday.
However, it was all too good to be true as Hedy moved away to Paris and when she came back, she was engaged. That was it for Susie. She packed her bags and moved to New York. To say Midge was shocked to hear about this would be an understatement. Midge apologizes, letting Susie know that had she known about this, she wouldn’t have asked Susie to cash in this favor.
Is there anything in store for Susie and Hedy?
It depends on how you look at it but that past relationship was all that was in store for Susie and Hedy, and it is probably for the rest. In fact, Hedy doesn’t even make an appearance in the series finale of ‘The Marvelous Mrs Maisel’ so if you were expecting a confrontation between the ex-lovers, you might be in for some disappointment. This entire relationship and heartbreak arc did however give a lot of depth to Susie’s character, and that was a long time coming!
