This was a fun episode this week. We got a mix of some of the emotional moments the series is known for as well as the lighter humor that works perfectly against the heavier material. Both Tim and Matt are made to coach the cheerleaders in a Powder puff football game, which also pits Lyla and Tyra on different sides. Not good for Lyla as Tyraís frustration towards her father and his relationship with her mother has become a source of anger for the bad girl, and unfortunately for Lyla, Tyra is directing all that anger towards her.
Last episode we saw Matt in some salacious photos that Julie was clearly upset about. Now, after ditching class with Tyra, Julie is forced to be part of the team, specifically Mattís team. Poor Matt as he tries to get her interested despite her obvious frustration and anger towards him. Thinking the team would serve well under Julieís guidance, considering her father is the football coach, he anoints her the quarterback.
That of course is greatest news to Taylor, who loves both his family, and then football, and now that both are combined he revels in the time he spends with Julie coaching her. It was a sweet moment between the two as he spends more time with instructing her on certain moves and plays to use during the game.
While Matt plays the passive leader on his team, Tim is the complete opposite, unwilling to accept losing he drills his team hard in preparation for the game. The juxtaposition between him and Matt was absolutely comical, and when Landry, who referees the game, tells Taylor to get off the field, you canít help but laugh. I mean it was really great to see Landry enjoying the moment and seeing Taylorís reaction.
Meanwhile, tensions are rising among the Dillon Panthers after Mac makes a few inappropriate and ignorant comments about the black players on the team. The comment causes many of the players to lose respect for Mac, and begins dividing the team. Smash for the most stays out of it until Tim, in a not so great moment, advises him to calm his people down. Insulted Smash takes a stand.
Jason Street returns to school and despite his best efforts its clear to him he simply does not fit in anymore. He feels separated from everyone else, no longer feeling apart of anything. In class he has trouble trying to dissect a frog since his hands no longer work the same way, his teacher notices and tells him itís okay he just observes, which doesnít really sit well with the former quarterback.
But there were some missed opportunities here. We never saw Jason with Tim, Tyra or even Lyla, which is strange since you would think that because it was his first day back that he would be greeted by his friends. But none of that happens. It was still a solid storyline bt it could have been better. Despite that however, the episode was still great with the Powder puff football, Tyra/Lyla battle, and the racial divide on the team, FNL dished out another excellent episode.
