PEN15 Season 2 Episode 7 Recap
Previously on PEN15, we opened up with Anna getting ready for the stage production today as her mother tries to help her. Only for her to deny and leave. Still, she asks Anna to carry glitter as a backup which she takes. Gabe with his new hair is getting all the support he needs while at the same time Maya looks for a much-needed prep talk from Anna.
So the play begins and that too with a lot of bumps, to begin with. There is a certain animosity between Maya and her boyfriend Gabe who is playing her husband in the same rule. That becomes obvious when he denies a kiss from her. Maya also forgets her lines until Anna makes the rescue in time and the glitter that her mother gave came as a great add-on. The rest of the play went well and became a standout. Gabe and Maya were no less than the stars.
The after-party saw the families of kids joining in to celebrate. As embarrassing, it gets for Maya, at the same time Anna is left waiting with her mother for her father to come. Maya is looking forward to her one kiss with Gabe and she feels something is wrong but Maya encourages her to go for it. Anna’s father later drops by but it doesn’t fill in for all the times he has been absent from his family. Until his convertible comes into question.
Maya also meets Sam who apologizes to her for past and also questions about Gabe not wanting to kiss her. So Anna picks up Maya, Gabe, and Steve for the ride. When Maya tries to make moves with Gabe, they leave them alone. Gabe only later confesses that he doesn’t feel the same towards Maya leaving her heartbroken. Anna later comforts her and also makes up with her mother with whom she hasn’t always been great. The episode closes with Anna’s dad Curtis taking the girls on a ride in his new convertible.
