I May Destroy You Episode 8 Spoilers:

I May Destroy You Episode 7 Recap:
The episode sees Arabella continuing her therapy, articulating her trauma, and the system within which this trauma exists. However, she draws a line between survivors and non-survivors, which doesn’t let her realize that Kwame and Terry are right there alongside her. The internet attention seems to have made Arabella all the more self-centered, and the current installment makes it clear that she is not a great friend.
We understand some of her past actions were entirely selfish, but at the same time, we get a glimpse of why Terry is so invested in Arabella’s healing. She was the one who convinced Simon to leave Arabella at the club, the night of her assault. Of course, she didn’t know Arabella had been drugged, but she feels guilty now. Finally, we see the financial impact of Arabella’s healing process.
She goes to meet Susy, asking for more time for her book. However, the latter tells her there are contracts and deadlines which cannot be missed. Arabella had expected more support from the black sisterhood, but Susy goes to the extent of exploring how rape might be appealing as a topic. While this is not what Arabella needs right now, ‘I May Destroy You’ expertly highlights how we must all accept the responsibilities we agreed to, and how they might not always arrive at the right time.
