Brand New Cherry Flavor episode 3 recap

Episode 3 of Brand New Cherry Flavor starts with Lisa (played by Rosa Salazar) discovering that a vine is growing through her new apartment. As if her day couldn’t get much worse, Lou turns up uninvited (again). Although Lisa was under the belief that it had been one day since he last turned up, uninvited, but it was actually three days. She must have had one hell of a sleep. Full of cocky attitude and believing he has box office magic, Lou offers Lisa a job as his assistant. Lisa’s response? “Why the f**k would I do that?”.

After puking up yet another kitten, Boro is right on time and walks into her apartment. But Lisa is angry that Lou isn’t suffering; as a matter of fact, he seems to be succeeding. No fear though! Boro explains that during lunch, Lou will develop an unpleasant condition. Lunch comes, and Lou develops hiccups. Which, of course, is not good enough for Lisa; she wants more damage. She even states that a brain-eating amoeba or a Brazilian spider that makes his dick hard until it falls off would be better than hiccups. Boro tells Lisa to get a flower from the vine she gave her, take the pollen and “get it inside him”. It will act as an accelerant and help create the pain she wants upon him.

Christine visits Lisa in a vine-covered apartment, where Christine finds a flower. Lisa takes the flower and finds a worm in it. So she scoops the worm and pollen into a little bag. As she does so, Roy calls her. He invites her to go skydiving with him. She declines but does say she will go as his date to Lou’s screening. After the phone call, there’s a loud rumbling, to which Lisa finds there is now a wooden door in her bedroom.

The ending

At Lou’s mansion, where there’s a party happening, the screening begins. One problem for Lisa, it’s her film getting screened. Boro is also in attendance, although her guest, Denise, appears to be dead. Lisa corners Lou upstairs and mixes the worm/pollen in with his cocaine before allowing him to snort it up.

Feeling the effects of what Lisa gave him, Lou starts to believe he has a food allergy and scratches himself all over. But Lisa’s attention/energy is solely on Jules, the new director, until he bursts into flames. Episode 3 of Brand New Cherry Flavor concludes with Boro saying; “Guess he won’t be directing your movie after all”.
