Summary

After Life season 2, episode 2 sees Tony battling with his caring but sensitive side as he realises his upwards battle to feel better is a long term war.

This recap of Netflix series After Life season 2, episode 2 contains significant spoilers.


So how does After Life season 2, episode 2 start?

Episode 2 opens up with Tony watching a video of him and Lisa having a dance at a wedding party.

The next morning, postman Pat tells Tony he has got the flatshare, so he’s no longer homeless. He asks about the sex worker Roxy and wonders if he can set them up.

How is Matt after Tony walked out in the previous episode?

Tony apologizes to Matt for his walkout in meditation and explains he needed a drink after because he felt sad. Matt tells Tony that he needs to get better. Tony makes an alarming remark about the point of living any longer.

It’s clear that Tony is still in the same place as last season. Tony then tells his friend Anne that the meditation instructor was annoying. Anne makes a good point; that Tony only went to the session because he cares about Matt — he’s caring but sensitive.

There’s a work experience apprentice at the papers.

Lenny introduces June’s son to the newspaper company for his work experience. Lenny’s son takes Brian to a talent theatre group who are preparing for a talent night. When Tony goes to investigate this theatre group, the leader claims he got bummed by a ghost.

Tony goes to see his father.

When Tony goes to see his father, he sees the nurse Emma chatting with the new man Simon. Tony cannot help himself and asks Emma about Simon, but she brushes it off, claiming they are not an item, yet.

How does After Life season 2, episode 2 end?

Tony makes a meal for Roxy who hates it. Roxy tells Tony that Lisa used to pretend to love his meals because he loved him. Tony agrees, and emotionally rambles on about Lisa and breaks down again — at the end of the conversation, Tony makes Roxy aware that the postman is interested in having a date with her.

Tony proves Anne right in this scene, he really does care about people.

Other points?

  • Matt is still having his useless therapy sessions in Episode 2. The therapist gives him a beer and talks about having sex with various women.
