Step Up: Excessive Water Season 3 Episode 3 Evaluate: Participant’s Ball
Oh, sure! That was one insane episode.
Step Up: High Water Season 3 Episode 3 delivered the whole lot. There was romance, intercourse, betrayal, alliances, and never forgetting Rigo’s one hell of a efficiency on the BMT awards.
The earlier two episodes have felt lazy; we had been rehashing the occasions of the previous two seasons. However this episode dials the drama as much as a hundred percent.
The episode units a grand stage for Sage and Rigo’s unending rivalry. There isn’t a higher place for musical kings to face off than at a dwell televised occasion. Too dangerous Sage is banned, and Rigo just isn’t invited.
Stakes are additionally raised when Rigo and Sage do some insane stuff, and Angel makes her play.
To not blow my very own horn, however not often am I incorrect after I discuss characters. It occurs, however seldom. This was one occasion in that I wanted I used to be incorrect about Angel.
I’m satisfied past a shadow of a doubt that she was utilizing Odalie to get into Excessive Water. And get in, she did.
As I used to be reviewing Step Up: High Water Season 3 Episode 2, I used to be fairly suspicious about her entire factor. She was embedding herself in Odalie’s life and gave the impression to be simply round when Odalie wanted something.
Her true intentions had been made clear. She doesn’t let up with Odalie’s damage. It was like she wished Odalie to stop.
Jeez, that appears horrible, Odalie. In the event you hold dancing on that, that will not heal.
It’d seem to be she is doing issues innocently, however the whole lot is calculated along with her. What are the chances that simply when the choreography appears to be missing one thing, she is that one thing? I would not blame her ambition and innovation if she weren’t strolling everywhere in the solely one who has been sort to her.
At Sage’s get together, she makes some extent of creating positive her dancing with Odalie takes heart stage. Afterward, after Rigo’s efficiency, she kisses Odalie laborious simply earlier than the digital camera pans away from them.
All this might sound coincidental, however they’re some fairly large coincidences. If, nevertheless, one has expertise with conniving bitches, it is all on the market.
The ultimate nail within the coffin was when she and Marquise hit it off and afterward hook up. They met an entire second in the past, and immediately they had been having intercourse when she had the identical chemistry as Odalie, and so they by no means even kissed — besides when it was useful to her.
Rigo is sinking deeper and deeper into the pit of stupidity. Somebody wants to provide that boy some media coaching as a result of one among as of late, he would possibly mess up past bouncing again.
He meets an influential particular person, and immediately, he’s all cocky.
Vida: Now, that was some actual tear-up-the-club shit.
Rigo: Good. So you are a fan?
Collette: Uh, he means, so that you’re conscious of his music.
His cockiness apart, he nonetheless hasn’t realized how a lot he is getting used. When Collette wants him to do one thing, she threatens him by pulling his title from the BMT efficiency. How dumb is he? She will’t do it! They already rejected Sage.
When he needs Rigo to do one thing, Marquise performs the road code playing cards. This boy just isn’t a gangster; he solely acts prefer it.
I discovered myself having some newfound respect for Marquise after this episode. He’ll do something for his little brother; actually, it seems he needs what’s greatest for Rigo.
When he realizes Sage is utilizing the efficiency to advertise himself, he cuts the track and ensures Rigo’s will get performed. He would not take heart stage, however he makes some large strikes as he lurks round.
He’s additionally gifted as a songwriter. When he freestyles for Angel, she realizes there is perhaps one thing.
Issues got here to a head between Davis and Odalie. Amen! Name him out, lady! We’re previous the time when ladies should hold tiptoeing round fragile masculinity.
You realize what, Davis? I’m sick of worrying about your delicate emotions. I can not seem to get it proper with you, in any case. I need to do what the fuck I need to do for as soon as. And proper now I need to take pleasure in this get together.
Odalie just isn’t higher off, although. She has lots to take care of between her worsening leg, over-reliance on capsules, and unrequited emotions.
The spotlight of the episode was Rigo’s efficiency. He is perhaps dumb, however he has expertise. So he at the very least has that going for him. The best way he can clutch the gang is gorgeous. That’s the risk that Sage sees.
His efficiency transported us to the true world of Step Up: Excessive Water. We’re but to see nice dance strikes, however the performances are unbelievable. They had been really missed.
Huge issues occurred as we neared the episode’s finish.
Rigo carried out a hearth diss observe which was screaming Marquise. The lyrics might solely come from somebody who hates Sage. Whereas he is not Rigo’s favourite particular person on earth, he would not hate Sage with the eagerness of somebody from the streets.
♪ Now allow us to pray and burn Sage to a mountain of mud. You son of a bitch, you depraved as fuck.
We already know Marquise is an effective songwriter; he has written songs for Rigo earlier than, so it is not an enormous stretch to suppose he wrote this one too.
The fallout from this can be large. Foremost, he dissed Sage, and Sage is cherished within the trade; then, Sage leaves his penthouse the place he’s underneath home arrest so Erin can be thrilled, and at last, he has jeopardized the tour, messing it up for everybody.
They will not maintain a lot love for him if he is the explanation they lose their livelihoods and derail their desires.
We might love to listen to your ideas in regards to the episode.
Do you suppose Angel is utilizing Odalie? Will she begin utilizing Marquise too?
Is the tour nonetheless on? Is Rigo completed for?
