Survival of the Thickest – Season 1 Episode 4 Recap & Review

Are You Crying, Bitch?

In episode 4 of Survival of the Thickest, during one of her shoots, Mavis unintentionally bumps into Jacque. On the occasion when Natasha’s dog Kristin gets married, she is made to work alongside him, who acknowledges he followed her. Jacque makes an effort to justify his change of heart and desire for reconciliation. Mavis, on the other hand, finds it difficult to manage her feelings.

Meanwhile, Khalil enjoys spending time with India. He packs a picnic basket for her and, at the end of the day, refuses to hook up with her and goes home. At the end of the night, Khalil and Mavis have a conversation. When he tells her about the picnic with India, she makes him realize how he could have given her the impression that he wanted to end things with her.

Mavis requests that Khalil communicate his feelings with India. Following that, she informs him of her situation with her ex-boyfriend, and Khalil asks her to communicate as well.

Khalil walks over to India’s building. He then proceeds to tell her that he likes her. We find out that she feels the same way as well. Meanwhile, Mavis pays a visit to her ex-boyfriend’s home. She acknowledges that she could have communicated with Jacque better, but she does not deserve to be deceived.

Despite Jacque’s requests, Mavis is unable to give their relationship another chance. She asks for his Japanese commode before leaving, and he gives it to her. After getting home, she finds Luca unexpectedly waiting for her. Thereafter, he offers to carry the commode for her.


The Episode Review

Episode 4 of Survival of the Thickest carries on with a paper-thin plot and unlikeable characters that viewers can’t identify with.

A surprise visit from Luca brings the episode to a close. The Netflix show intends for this to be a shocking moment, but given the shallowness of their relationship, the surprise falls flat. Having said that, it will be intriguing to watch how events develop moving forward.
