Following this, they break their agreement and end up sleeping together in Margot’s house, bringing the episode to a close.

The Episode Review

The episode centers on Margot and David’s complicated relationship as it evolves from friendship to something more. The episode ends with them breaking their pact by sleeping together after their vacation. At this point, the show’s plot is extremely complicated and poorly written. Both leads are seen stringing their partners along while they are attracted to and sleeping with each other.

Furthermore, the central characters’ partners are simply presented as self-absorbed, condescending, and plain bad people for no reason other than to make the protagonists look good, resulting in extremely weak character arcs.
