WARNING: THIS SONG CONTAINS MASSIVE SPOILERS FOR THE ENDING OF LAST NIGHT’S CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
So yeah. Last night’s episode of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was directed by Joseph Kahn, who also directed a lot of music videos, including Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” and the more recent “Look What You Made Me Do.” And it shows, especially with the opening musical number, “Scary Scary Sexy Lady”:
But the best musical number was still the one where Rebecca hits rock bottom and so Josh Groban, who is just an extra in this episode, sings to her about how life isn’t like a movie and it makes no narrative sense. It’s awesome and wonderful and heartbreaking and hilarious.
Just remember: people aren’t characters, they’re complicated and their choices don’t always make sense. But banging your ex-boyfriend’s dad is still really messed up.
