‘I May Destroy You‘ is the new series which boldly takes us into the murky landscape of hookup culture, and explores ideas of consent. We meet a writer who goes out to party with her friends because she’s having a writer’s block. However, the entire night becomes a blurry memory for her, and by the time she wakes up, she can only vaguely remember what happened. As our protagonist, Arabella, sets about trying to piece the puzzle together, she comes across the horrifying fact that she’s been assaulted. At that moment, she knows her life has changed forever, and she has to live with this truth.
The previous episode decides to go to a flashback, during a time when Arabella had not been assaulted. Her carefree attitude stands in stark contrast with how we have seen her after the incident. It is an insightful detour about her life of partying and her friend circle. So, what happens in the latest episode? We have the rundown and information on when and where to watch the upcoming episode.
