FX’s comedic masterpiece ‘Atlanta’ aired it’s 9th episode last night (October 25, 2016).
[FLASHBACK: RECAP: Atlanta Episode 8 – ‘The Club’… (FULL VIDEO)]
This week, we spend a bit of time with Earn (Donald Glover) and Van (Zadie Beetz) as they begrudgingly attending a Juneteenth party hosted by Monique (her former boss) hoping to get an express pass into Atlanta’s Black elite social circles.
If you recall, Van was fired from her job on Episode 6 after she admitted to smoking weed (click HERE if you missed that). Now, she’s been invited by Monique to a Juneteenth celebration hoping to rub elbows with a few who’s who in Atlanta, thinking that it would a great to make connections.
For those of you who don’t know ‘Juneteenth’ parties common down south as many celebrate the day slaves were emancipated from the Confederacy on June 19th 1865. Van feels there will be many key figures in attendance and brings Earn along as her ‘husband’ so that she can fit in with the elite crowd.
