All issues should come to an finish. It’s a bittersweet factor that we by no means anticipated.

The Excessive Water chapter closes on Step Up: High Water Season 3 Episode 10. Angel makes a selection, Rigo, and Marquise resolve their points, and Collette will get a greater ending than one would have thought for her.

A couple of particular person realizes their goals. For Sage, Excessive Water is successful; now, he can relaxation simple. For Tal, Davis, and Poppy, the varsity saved them from their extremely unsure futures. Even Odalie and Rigo benefited from the expertise.

Sage dipped his toes into the world of politics. This was a choice I wasn’t too thrilled about as a result of 9 instances out of ten, it ends badly for celebrities after they combine politics and leisure.

It typically cannot be prevented, particularly when politics infringe on inventive liberty, nevertheless it’s advisable to carry it till the combat involves you.

We’ll by no means see how this performs out and impacts his life, however to this point, so good.

The episode set a good greater stage for a showdown between two brothers who would moderately feed and therapeutic massage their egos than admit that they want one another. All the nice drama occurs on the Grammys with a few million individuals watching.

Actually, I did not imagine Rigo and Marquise hated one another for a minute. They’re brothers who needed to depend on one another rising up on account of getting an all-time unhealthy dude for a father. They may have taken completely different paths in life, however I do not assume any love was misplaced between them.

Earlier than Rigo performs thug when he confronts Marquise within the penthouse, one feels the aid in his voice on discovering that Marquise remains to be alive. Regardless of how a lot he hates to confess it, he loves Marquise greater than he lets on.

Marquise: Yo, how the fuck did you discover me?
Rigo: Your, uh, efficiency with Sage. That was only a small trace. Dumbass. Right here I’m questioning for those who lifeless or alive, and also you out right here residing just like the motherfucking Recent Prince?
Marquise: And why the fuck do you care?

Who cried like a child when he thought Marquise had been killed? Who drowned himself in liquor and weed within the days that adopted?

I discovered myself rooting for Marquise within the later episodes of the season. Because the first season, I could not stand him. He and East-O had been the large unhealthy of the present, and I dreaded seeing him on display, particularly after what he did to Tal.

He, nevertheless, received a redemption arc that turned him right into a not-so-awful man that we thought he was. Then, it seems that he has nice expertise. The one factor I remorse about this sequence finale is that we did not see him develop as an artist and go locations.

All that is due to Terayle Hill, who portrays Marquise. After the primary couple of episodes of the season, I sought out the soundtrack and listened to all of the tracks, particularly ones by Marquise.

This then led me to Terayle’s Spotify, and he gained a fan.

That versus between Marquise and Rigo was one of many stand-out moments of the hour.

♪ And blessed you with them recent outfits ♪
♪ Boy, you bought me fucked up ♪
♪ While you had no bread and also you was out shit ♪
♪ Cannot identify three individuals within the metropolis to fuck with ♪
♪ You jealous, you are insecure ♪

Talking of stand-out moments, Angel’s brother came around. JJ was the villain we by no means knew we wanted and one we’ll miss.

Regardless of my newly developed mushy spot for Marquise, I could not ignore the truth that he could be ugly if he needs. And in addition, Marquise stole Angel from Odalie. Sure, I am not over that.

In lower than a minute, JJ put Marquise in the proper place. This jogged my memory of a Swahili saying that claims: pwagu humpata pwaguzi. A direct translation would imply a thief meets a much bigger thief. It means nobody is on the high of any system as a result of there’s at all times somebody higher or worse than them.

If we thought JJ and Marquise are unhealthy individually, London is in hassle with them united.

The largest loser — and somebody I felt for — is Odalie. She was dealt the worst hand in the entire present. In ten episodes, she misplaced her boyfriend and girlfriend, injured her leg, and had a particularly unhealthy homosexual disaster.

Dropping Davis was good for her. That dude was a loser. The remainder of it’s horrible. Her first relationship with a girl is her greatest heartbreak. Admittedly, this relationship was additionally not the epitome of wholesome.

In my early evaluations of the season, I bear in mind mentioning that Angel had ulterior motives for befriending Angel. Nonetheless, one other factor that did not happen to me was that Odalie was additionally seeking to blow up her life and get away from Davis.

Watching each of them almost throw fingers over the straightforward undeniable fact that Odalie talked about Marquise is perhaps a thief was comical.

Collette, then again, emerged as a winner. She received the varsity, a child, and remained free as a hen. On the floor, it’d appear to be she did not deserve it, however she did.

Sage: Hey, ‘Lette. So pay attention, I considered it, and, um… you need to have Excessive Water.
Collette: What?
Sage: It is yours. All the time has been. And inside, I’ve at all times recognized that. So maintain it.

She has executed horrible issues for the sake of Excessive Water. It is solely truthful she will get it. She spends nights on finish taking good care of Excessive Water affairs.

The infant was an unexpected perk.

I’m skeptical of the way forward for Excessive Water with the modifications she has launched. Foremost, fits.

Fits wreck every part. When beginning the varsity, Sage wasn’t on the lookout for a payout. He genuinely needed to serve the underserved artists in Atlanta. Spartika is a profit-driven enterprise that does not often bode effectively with a not-for-profit institution.

Poppy additionally received an excellent ending with a tall, good-looking, unartistic man. She can also be in a greater place financially and career-wise, so there is no such thing as a over-reliance on him. Taking good care of Rigo or taking part in Dondre’s endless video games will need to have been exhausting.

Welcome to our housewarming celebration, all people!


The plan to faux kill Marquise was effectively orchestrated. I am unsure whether or not he or Angel had any concept what JJ would do as a result of they appeared very shocked after they noticed him. However additionally they hesitated to get within the automotive with him.

Then some man got here and rushed him into his automotive. Normally, individuals look ahead to first responders to point out up and deal with it.

Nobody went down for East-O’s homicide which for an outsider seems unhappy, however that is what you reap from residing a sure life-style. The man was terrible even to his sons. I doubt anybody will miss him.

In London, Angel, Marquise, and JJ purchased the membership they’d at all times needed utilizing the cash Sage had given Marquise.

Tal and Gunnar got here to London to go to them. It was candy to see Tal and Marquise excited to see each other. Forgiving Marquise is perhaps Tal’s starting of therapeutic. Being with Gunnar, I am not enthusiastic about it.

As I discussed in my overview of Step Up: High Water Season 3 Episode 1, I’ll at all times be staff Tal and Johnny, and in my thoughts, Tal and Gunnar broke up that very same day after Gunnar requested him to maneuver to London.

After which Tal and Johnny bumped into one another within the streets of London on the identical day just like the universe had been pushing them collectively. They received again collectively and lived fortunately ever after.

See? It is doable. Simply manifest it.

The top of the hour noticed Marquise fall again into his previous lifetime of killing with out restraint. Now in a brand new metropolis, with a danger-seeking love of his life and an unhinged brother-in-law, all of it looks like an ideal setup to personal London.

After killing the blokes within the alley, he dazedly stares on the scene round him, and I may swear I heard him say, “Oh shit! Right here we go once more.”

That is the place you go off about what you considered the sequence finale and share some various endings that will have made you content.

Was the finale satisfying for you, or did it depart extra questions than it provided solutions?

Do you assume Marquise was ever in a position to depart the thug life?

What do you assume occurred to Odalie and Rigo?

Will Excessive Water thrive beneath Collette?
