In the January 11 new episode, I Need Some Balance, Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) lets the cat out of the bag by deciding that she needs to find a way to take her mind off her ex-boyfriends. Vincent Rodriguez III, Vella Lovell, Pete Gardner, Donna Lynne Champlin and Gabrielle Ruiz also star.
Rebecca has been dealing with the repercussions of the very long string of decisions, good, bad and alarmingly questionable, that she’s made since she took flight from New York City and landed in West Covina three seasons ago. This year, Rebecca is in some ways like a baby chick that’s about to tumble out of the nest, and in other ways she’s that friend who is searching for enlightenment and kinda can’t stop yammering about it.
As always, Rebecca’s actions have had unintended consequences for her West Covina friends – Nathaniel (Scott Michael Foster) feels betrayed by her, Josh (Vincent Rodriguez III) is taken aback by her, and Darryl (Pete Gardner) is parenting her baby. Paula (Donna Lynne Champlin), Heather (Vella Lovell) and Valencia (Gabrielle Ruiz) remain staunchly by Rebecca’s side but they are busy finding their own identities (as a law student, regional manager and kickass party planner, respectively.)
Will everyone be content to stay in the nest with Rebecca? Or will they start to transcend the sunbaked, boba-strewn purgatory that is West Covina? The answer to these and other questions are key this final season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend as themes of redemption, recovery, responsibility, rebirth, renewal and reality are dealt with.
