Episode Four, “What Normal People Do,” takes time at developing not just Jimmy and Gretchen, but Edgar and Lindsay as well. The very title of the episode goes against almost everything we see play out.
“Insouciance” keeps Jimmy and Gretchen’s ‘relationship,’ as Jimmy puts it in heavy quotation marks, very casual. They talk and joke like they’ve been friends for life, but keep things straightforward. Both still acknowledge how horrible they are. After learning that Gretchen lied to the Spice Girls, Jimmy says “Dishonesty to spare someone’s feelings belittles everyone involved. Dishonesty to get free stuff is just smart economics.”
