'Wu-Tang: An American Saga' Season 2 Episode 2: Music comes to Bobby's rescue
Music has once come in Bobby's life and this time he's going to choose the right path
‘Wu-Tang: An American Saga’ is back with Season 2 and there’s a lot of excitement for it. There have been only a few shows that do justice to the music industry and show the real struggles of a group or a musician with so much determination. The Hulu show is undoubtedly one of those and shows how rappers are trying to make a name for themselves while living in difficult neighborhoods.
The first episode of Season 2 saw Bobby Diggs (Ashton Sanders) coming out of jail as a free man after the jury presented a “not guilty” verdict. He returns home and enjoys a mini-party with his family. But, he’s still confused as to what he needs to do with his life. He takes the help of a martial arts movie, which has a storyline of a person losing everything and then going on a path that would give him everything.
‘Wu-Tang: An American Saga’ Season 2 Episode 1 Review: Emotional roller coaster ride
After seeing the movie, Diggs goes up to his room and starts working on his musical instruments. He takes out various floppy disks and cassettes of his unfinished tunes, trying to make something out of them. He quickly gets the hang of it and gets to know that the only thing he loves the most is music. He works on one of the tunes and tries completing it. The passion in his eyes and the big smile on his face make us realize that this is what he always intended to do and this is the right path for him.
He finishes the tune and a few moments later, he and Dennis (Siddiq Sanderson) talk to each other about making money. Bobby tells him about Jim Stewart and Estelle Axton, who created Stax Records. They put their own money into it and became famous. Bobby announces to him that he is going back to New York to kick start his musical career once again. Dennis politely refuses because he has just become a father and he can’t leave his wife and son alone here.
Bobby goes back to his instruments and makes Dennis a tune he made. Dennis is intrigued by and says his beats are getting razor-sharp. He writes “Dennis” on that floppy disk and leaves it for him so that he can do whatever he wants to do with it.
In the last moments of the episodes, he talks with his mother Linda (Erika Alexander) and tells her that he wants to go there so that he doesn’t commit the same mistakes again. He says that he’s gonna keep his promise and be a successful musician again.
The episode was truly one of the best episodes of the show and turned out to give a positive feeling all around. Music can heal anyone and that’s how our main protagonist gets to learn that music is the only thing that can save him. Let’s see how he will be welcomed to New York.
‘Wu-Tang: An American Saga’ returns to Hulu with a new episode every Wednesday.
