Breakdown Of Fourth Episode: Barry Season 4
The first three episodes were filled with traumatizing scenes, and that could be a reason behind Episode Fourth taking a much mellow route. It starts with Barry’s yet another flashback into what was first speculated as his own childhood.
However, later on, it’s revealed it’s not really a flashback but probably a fantasy on Barry’s end, where he imagined (in detail) building a family with Sally.
But then again, unlike his usual flashbacks that always seemed mystical, this particular vision seemed very much rooted in reality. Especially because his son, John, indeed gives off main-character vibes. Moreover, this whole thing implies one thing: The time leap.
In fact, the main lead (Bill Hader) backed this theory in an interview: He said, and I quote, “What if all characters got what they wanted?” Since Barry always dreamed of a normal family life with Sally, it looks like they actually went ahead in time and gave it to him.
Furthermore, since Hank came into his truest cold-blooded self, it resulted in Christobal’s death. And their final moments are really difficult to watch as Hank tries to keep the couple safe by teaming up with Chechens.
Moreover, to prove his point, Hank went a bit too far by killing Christobal and his men.
Regardless, you get to see Hank break down for just a second before he gathers himself. Overall, the acting in that particular scene was really a *chef’s kiss*
What To Expect From The Fifth Episode?
The fifth episode will definitely explore Barry and Sally’s respective struggles: Where he has no escape from the outbursts that are the result of his traumatic past. On the other hand, Sally is struggling to find an escape from her hopeless urge for fame.
And if you compare both of their needs, it’s obvious their present is not in alignment.
Regardless, that’s what instigated the time leep.
Moreover, the vision we saw in the previous episode will be the base for the upcoming episode. Barry and Sally are married with a child and living a mundane (yet secretly frustrating life) 7-8 years in the future.
Now, how they come out of their suppressed needs and further undergo character development is a potential plot.
