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.

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.
