Insecure fast forward through

Shows like “Insecure” can have a hard time reaching meaningful endings because, when all is said and done, life goes on. However, the final episode of the HBO playwright managed to create something memorable.

The extra-long ending then proceeded to do essentially that, following the breakup of Issa (Issa Rae) and Nathan (Kendrick Sampson), and the uneven and longer-than-expected path that ultimately led her back to Lawrence (Jay Ellis), that it had always seemed predestined, despite all the obstacles, individually and together, that the two of them cleared along the way. Of course, there was much more to it than that and other business to do. Issa’s best friend, Molly (Yvonne Orji), after her own series of changing relationships.

Eventually married Taurean (Leonard Robinson), following a bittersweet path to that result with the loss of her mother. There was another brooding moment at the wedding, when Issa worries whether her bond would survive the change in Molly’s status, a common concern when people see her friends make such leaps in their 20s and 30s.
“There goes my girl,” Issa muses. But as the ending made clear, don’t worry: When the show closed, they were on the phone again, despite being thousands of miles apart .

An indication that wherever they are, the friendship will survive. As CNN’s Lisa France noted, despite the focus on Issa’s romantic entanglements, “for me, her true loves will always be her closest friends: Molly, Kelli and Tiffany.”
“Insecure” operated on two levels, focusing on the specific challenges faced by her characters while presenting an image of black life rarely seen on television over the years. NPR’s Eric Deggans noted when the show premiered five years ago, Rae wanted her to define herself in part by how inconspicuous she was.

Isn’t it sad that he’s revolutionary?” Rae said at the time. “We can’t just have a show about ordinary black people as basic. Rae also spoke earlier this year about the perceived pressure to include white characters in order to make TV shows with black tracks more identifiable to a wider audience, advice that she later resisted. The result of those efforts was a finale that managed to be appropriately understated and still satisfying, like a season marked by college reunions, breakups, losses, and career decisions.

through the prism of characters that audiences had come to know from all of its members. media. quirks and, yes, insecurities. People come into your life for a reason,” Issa says at one point during the finale. TV shows come to life for all kinds of reasons, but it’s usually the little details that keep them alive. In that sense  Insecure offered one last demonstration of having mastered the basics of being, well, basic.
