Happy Wine Wednesday! I am delighted to welcome back the brilliant, hilarious, and insightful Reverend Solomon Missouri to talk about the incredible second season of The Bear. I had a great time discussing the first season of The Bear with Solomon, so I was thrilled when he enthusiastically agreed to return to talk more about this show we love so very much.
One of the reasons why The Bear resonated so much with me is because I often feel seen, attacked, or sometimes both by the writing for certain characters. So with that in mind, I asked Solomon to share the character beats that resonated most with him this season.
We delve deeper into the character arcs by sharing the ones we enjoyed most. It should come as a surprise to no one that we both loved what the writers did with Richie this season. Of course we get into the standout episodes of the season - we spend a lot of time unpacking the parade of stars and stellar performances in the chaotic episode "Fishes."
As always, the episode ends with the thirst segment in which our thoughts and reflections go from wholesome to lusty. In honor of Carmy's trip down memory lane with Claire, I asked Solomon who he would like to pitch a little woo to if he was gifted a time machine that would make all the beautiful people throughout history fair game for his affection.
We also get into the fandom shipping wars. It's time for y'all to come home from war - your families miss you. We talk Carmy x Claire, Carmy x Syd, and Marcus x Syd. Shippers aren't going to get on the same page about Carmy's perfect mate, so I ask Solomon whether Ebra x Tina are the couple that perhaps the shippers could unite behind and finally find some peace.
Thank you so much for listening!
Friendly reminder - we drink, we know things, we use adult language, and we have a great time!
