'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' season 3B: 3 things we want to see before series finale
Season 4B of the Netflix show is set to premiere January 25, 2019, and we already know it is going to be the swan song
All good things – even perfect things – must come to an end, and so must Netflix’s ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,’ the brainchild of Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, which narrates the story of the titular 30-year-old who is adjusting to life in the outside world after being imprisoned in an underground bunker with three other women by their kidnapper. As scary and tragic as that may sound, ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ is one of the happiest and more cheerful shows to ever exist.
Season 4B of the Netflix show is set to premiere January 25, 2019, and we already know it is going to be the swan song. With the last 6 episodes awaiting us come next year, we are plagued with questions about what is to come and what kind of closure are we going to get? There are many storylines within the show that we have been following for a while now and we need to know that the payoff is going to be worth it.
Kimmy’s book for growing boys
Unlike other female leads, Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) has not had many love interests on the show, which is obviously understandable. She has a lot of growing up and understanding herself to do before she can love someone else. One of the things she has done, which has not only helped her but also hopefully will help growing boys better understand their hormonal changes and sexual needs after hitting puberty, is the book she wrote, ‘The legends of Grimulax.’
The book is a hit with everyone who has read it and gives amazing advice to growing children, like how important it is to remember the “good inside of you is stronger than the bad.” It has passed the child test, and we really need to that to become a bestseller.
Titus’ big declaration of love
After his failed attempts at winning Mikey (Mike Carlsen) back by walking a peacock, starring in a fake TV show with Greg Kinnear and performing his hit single ‘Boobs in California’, Titus Andromedon (Tituss Burgess) decided to do something he had probably never done before – be honest about his feelings.
In the first half of season 4, he booked a gig on the boat Mikey was on with his new boyfriend, where he told the love of his life that no matter what amount of time or what amount of work it takes, he would win him back.
Most of our hearts have been singing since we heard this long-drawn declaration of love. From the beginning of ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’, we have hoped for Titus to grow and the teensy bit it may seem like he has, we are proud of our soon-to-be Broadway star. Before the finale, we want to see him make good on this declaration.
Mr. Frumpus’ revenge on Titus
‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ used a puppet, Mr. Frumpus, to accurately describe what casting couch and sexual harassment in the workplace looks like. In the first half of the season, we saw a man holding Mr. Frumpus asking Titus to touch his nether regions and when Titus refused he was denied a role in ‘Sesame Street.’
The cliffhanger for the show, however, was a human hand, shaking hands with Mr Frumpus' puppet hands over a briefcase of cash, with the voiceover: "Consider it done". We know this is going to involve Titus and we are excited to see how this storyline will pan out. Will take a comedic route peppered with stingers that parallel real-life issues? We have to wait and watch.
