This recap of Grown-ish Season 3, Episode 7, “Doin’ the Most”, contains spoilers. You can check out our thoughts on the previous episode by clicking these words.
Grown-ish Season 3, Episode 7 starts with a reminder of Skye’s ankle injury from last season. Post-rehab, Skye was ready to get back in the game. But now it seems like Jaz has become less interested in the game, hence why she’s been late to the last several practices. Skye thinks Doug is getting in the way of her focus, and she needs Jaz to get her head in the game so they can reach the Olympics like they always intended. Jaz assures her that everything’s okay. Unfortunately, Jaz continues to do poorly at practice. So far, she’s failing when it comes to letting Skye down.
That night, Skye catches Jaz FaceTiming Doug. He wants to see her for a little while before he heads to New York. Since Skye is in the background, Jaz ends the phone call, but later sneaks out to see Doug, who convinces her to stay out. She returns home at five in the morning, and Skye catches her. They get in an argument, and Skye suggests that if Jaz’s heart is no longer in track, then it’s time to let it go.
Meanwhile, Zoey tells Nomi (hey there!) via FaceTime that Aaron is still ignoring her. Shortly after, she runs into Jillian and expresses her excitement over styling for a magazine cover. The location of the shoot has changed to Las Vegas, which screws up her plan to take her fashion Final so she can go to Vegas. Jillian asks if she can ask her professor to reschedule the exam, but Zoey explains she’s missed a lot of days already to accommodate the job. She doesn’t think her professor will give her any leeway, and she’s right.
Grown-ish Season 3, Episode 7 continues when Zoey does something surprising. She asks Luca to go to Las Vegas in her place as a favor. He’s not sure, but Jillian tells him it’s a big opportunity. After thinking about it, he agrees. Later, we see Jillian and Luca define their relationship. They’re not a couple just yet, but who knows what the future holds?
Toward the end of “Doin’ The Most,” Zoey finishes her exam and gives Luca a FaceTime call. The shoot was a success, and Luca thanks Zoey for the opportunity. He hangs up before she can ask him anything else. Jaz apologizes to Skye for brushing off what seems important to her, but she reiterates that she loves track, and she loves her twin. They make up. However, Jaz still comes in last place during practice. She looks conflicted after she gets a text from Doug.
Jillian congratulates Zoey on a job well done but notes her lack of enthusiasm. Zoey admits that she’s bummed she missed her first big experience, despite still getting the credit. Zoey says she already has her career in fashion but is missing it to learn about… a career in fashion. What’s the point? Jillian says if she had to choose between getting to direct a movie, and doing a film final, she’s picking the movie. Her words give Zoey something to think about.
During the B-plot of “Doin’ The Most,” Aaron talks with Ana and Javier about holding a conservative-related rally. Naturally, he’s not interested due to being a Liberal. While informing Ana that her rally is a go, he points out that she and Javier have good chemistry. Ana says he’s a colleague, and after her tryst with Aaron last season, she doesn’t want to complicate particular dynamics by adding romance.
While alone, Ana admits to Javier that they have chemistry, but she doesn’t want anything right now. Javier says that he’s not looking to be in a relationship right now either, and it makes things awkward. Javier excuses himself… only to return and admit that he lied. He is interested in her. They end up kissing.
Grown-ish Season 3, Episode 7, is another good entry. While Luca had no right to be mad about Zoey taking the job with Joey Bada$$ last season, she has essentially “paid him back” by letting him be at the big shoot to network and get connections. It resolves one of the things that destroyed their relationship. The scenes between the twins were great. However, it feels like this should be an easy fix. If Doug gets to live his life and do whatever, he should understand that Jaz has priorities that come before him. If he doesn’t understand that, then maybe it’s time to end the relationship. Something tells me that’ll be Jaz’s arc going forward.
The B-plot was fine. Ana and Javier are okay, but the scenes she had with Aaron prove how much chemistry those two have, and when you compare Ana and Aaron’s scenes with Ana and Javier’s, the latter pales in comparison.
What seems to be the most interesting is the fact that Zoey may be considering dropping out of school to pursue a full-time career as a stylist. She has the credentials to do so, so what’s stopping her? It’s an interesting question for her to tackle as we head into the spring finale of Grown-ish next week.
