'Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist' Episode 4: Zoey makes a few miracles happen as she helps Mo face her fears
While we have seen Mo help Zoey, we were never given an inside look at Mo's life. But this week, we were finally given a sneak peek into their personal life
Zoey might not be someone who is religious or believes in miracles but she sure did make a few miracles happen for her new best friend Mo, her neighbor Bonnie and Boss Joan on Sunday's (March 1) episode titled, 'Zoey's Extraordinary Neighbor'.
'Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist' returned on Sunday night for an all-new episode. Over the past few weeks, we have seen Zoey try to figure out her powers with the help of her new friend Mo. While we have seen Mo help Zoey, we were never given a look at Mo's life, but this week you'll be glad to know that we were finally given a sneak peek into their personal life.
Mo, who is Zoey's gender-fluid neighbor and new friend ever since her powers came into play, is known for their larger than life personality. But this week we saw an entirely different side to Mo, as they belted out the lyrics to 'The Great Pretender' by Platters proving that behind their large personality, lies an even bigger lie that they are living and they aren't proud of it.
Post informing Zoey about their downstairs agoraphobic neighbor Bonnie, Mo talks about how they can't imagine hiding their true self from everyone. It didn't take much time before Zoey's powers pried into Mo's own life revealing their innermost feelings.
Mo's tragic history revolves around them not being accepted in the church because of their gender fluidity while growing up. Though the pastor of Mo's current church already knows about their gender fluidity, that isn't the only thing that's holding Mo back. But it is the reaction of the congregation that is keeping them from showing their true self to everyone.
Though Zoey tries to reach out and help, things don't go well initially, after Mo shuts her out. While Zoey tries to figure out a way to help Mo, she also feels like she needs to save others as well and that includes Bonnie whose innermost feelings prove that she wants to come out of her shell and go to the Caribbean. She belts out the lyrics to 'Kokomo' by the Beach Boys, and 'Margaritaville' by Jimmy Buffet.
Meanwhile, Zoey figures out that all is not good with her boss Joan. She learns that her boss recently separated from her husband during their watch launch party. Joan begins to reveal her innermost feelings via Miley Cyrus' 'Wrecking Ball'.
Not wanting to be a hypocrite, Mo decides to never step into the church until they are able to be true. Meanwhile, Zoey continuously stops at Bonnie's front door trying ways to convince her that going to the Caribbean might someday be possible if she would let her help.
It might have been a miracle but Zoey somehow got Bonnie to open the door and that gives her an idea. She asks Bonnie to walk along with her to Mo's apartment to drop off the rent check. Bonnie's courage to overcome her agoraphobia was big enough a miracle for Mo to realize that she should face her fears as well.
Standing in front of the entire church's congregation in a wig and dress, fearless, Mo sang their heart out to 'This Little Light of Mine' and without a doubt they shined bright. It was a perfect ending to a perfect episode. Overall, it was an episode filled with emotions that none expected but everything we needed and we can't wait to see what Zoey's powers has in store for her next week.
