Living with Yourself Season 1, Episode 3, “Green Tea” presents new challenges for both Miles, as they agree to work together in a 50/50 life.

This recap of Netflix Series Living with Yourself Season 1, Episode 3, “Green Tea” contains spoilers. You can read the recap of the previous episode by clicking these words.

This… is not the best episode for Original Miles (Paul Rudd). After finding New Miles (Paul Rudd) outside of his house, he realises that he has built up a career-defining opportunity at work and that New Miles has to continue delivering it. “1-week break,” Original Miles declares, vowing to finally write that screenplay while New Miles goes to work and continues with developing the pitch to Hillston.

But the issue is Episode 3, “Green Tea” brings home the reality that Original Miles is just not able to cut it; while New Miles goes to work and enhances his life, Original Miles slowly begins to drink himself into oblivion, stop writing his screenplay and blow up his HDTV with porn. By the time New Miles comes home, Original Miles is too drunk, meaning he has to take one for the team and be the host for Kate’s party.

At the party, New Miles laps up the audience, so much so that he gets Original Miles laid that night.

As Episode 3 develops, Original Miles gets frustrated at how New Miles is encroaching on his life; New Miles even edits the screenplay in a way that Original Miles does not agree with. In a defining scene, Original Miles explains that it is his life, and he must deliver the pitch to Hillston.

Of course, Original Miles clumsily delivers the pitch — accidentally showing a glimpse of his porn at the start, but due to the marketing content impressing the company, they land the client. The company owner speaks to Original Miles at the end, implying that he knows the idea was stolen, and if he has, he should at least make himself good at it.

With Kate out celebrating with Miles’ colleagues, Living with Yourself Season 1, Episode 3, “Green Tea” ends with Original Miles traveling in the pouring rain to the party. He walks into TGIs and ends a story that New Miles was delivering — Kate drops her drinks, and the group looks shocked.
