‘Abbott Elementary’ Season 2, Episode 3 Recap

ABC has released some stills from Abbott Elementary School‘S The highly anticipated Halloween episode early this week — but don’t get your hopes up Early. Halloween is still over three weeks away! This week’s episode has nothing to do with Janine’s (Quinta Brunson) or Barbara’s James Harden (Quinta Brunson) costume.Sheryl Lee Ralph) spell bee wake up. But it did typical costumes of a different kind.

The so-called “Samurai Story” visited Abbott in the third episode of Season 2, impress students with the performance of plays based on their own ideas. The entire Abbott faculty reveled in the cheers of the visiting honored improv group, laughing with delight at their ingenious displays of Meek Mill and Malcolm X.

“I don’t accept violence,” Jacob said, “but it slaps.”

Abbott completely derails after Jacob (Chris Perfetti) proudly declares he was once one of the Samurai of the Story, taking part in their goofy antics. He once starred in a beautiful production of “Rosa Parks and Rec” with samurai, he gloated with Janine. Jacob enjoyed his days as part of Samurai Story, though he’s happy to be a teacher now. He even praised them for their lackluster acting.

Suddenly, the opportunity of a lifetime presents Jacob: The story the Samurai wanted him to perform on their afternoon show. What a lucky thing! What a gift! Jacob seizes the opportunity to be with his beloved family again, agreeing to wear a samurai robe for one last performance with the group.

Abbott employees, currently in a state of hysteria, plan to organize a massive soirée around Jacob’s epic reunion with the stage. Ava (Janelle James) will be live-streaming the event to thousands on Instagram, while the incredibly giddy Barbara can’t stop mentioning it in the hallways. Janine, however, is not so sure. As a close friend of Jacob, she feels the need to close the whole thing to save herself from further embarrassment.

While Janine admits that she’s pretty dapper herself, she says she accepts her handsomeness and embraces it in the classroom. But she’s worried about Jacob coming white savior territory—Like Hilary Swank in Freedom Riders or worse, Sandra Bullock in Blindsided. While this behavior doesn’t hurt anyone, Janine tells him to be more conscious of his unrelenting upbringing.

“You are a white teacher at a black school,” says Janine. “My point is, you can’t do this performance. You will never live it down. You don’t want to be a legend.”

At first, Jacob decided to sit down to perform, pondering his tone as a teacher. But once he fully accepted his handsomeness, Janine encouraged him to take the stage. If he’s excited, and he understands why the kids laugh at him, then no one loses. Eventually, he realizes that it’s satirical about segregation (through a tiger who doesn’t love his stripes, and a father telling him he’ll never sell grain) and Shaun King is extremely stupid.

It was a brief, quick takedown of corny activism. No, Jacob wasn’t acting malicious — Janine even felt bad telling him, because he was so kind and proud and excited about the samurai — but he needed to be put in his place. . Now, Jacob might think twice before sharing a fun graphic about the Civil Rights Movement on his Instagram story.

To actually put the cherry on top, Abbott concludes the episode about our beloved will-they-won’t-them couple, Janine and Gregory (Tyler James Williams), chatting about Samurai Tales as they practice (and nearly break their arm) some sweet samurai moves. Are they virgins? Do they have any life? Who knows — but they made the perfect guests on Abbott Elementary School.
