Brand New Cherry Flavor episode 5 recap

After meeting with Shauna in episode 4, Lisa visits Mike Nathan. Mike was married to Jennifer until she suddenly vanished. When Lisa takes him to Boro’s yard, Boro herself appears and claims, “You know me as Boro, he knows me as Jennifer”. To provide Lisa with the reasons as to why she left, Boro takes both Lisa and Mike back to Mike’s home.

Lou is desperate for answers related to Lisa, and so he is meeting with the editor of Lisa’s short movie. Although the editor doesn’t want to watch the movie again, as the end scene is too much for him, he tells Lou a little about Mary. Mary is the lead actress in the short movie. Does Lou have enough information to learn about what occurred during filming?

Going to the location where Lisa filmed the short movie, he finds Mary. Although due to the drugs she and Lisa had taken, Mary has no memory of what happened during filming. Interestingly, Mary only has one eye. After Boro/Jennifer cooks dinner for her husband and two children, they pass out with Boro saying, “I’m not Jennifer, although I always liked her name”. Lisa realizes that Boro is a “f*****g beast”. Boro further explains that she can only change bodies every few decades, but she wanted someone simple this time. Is Lisa that someone simple? Boro performs a memory extraction on the family, but when Lisa storms off, Boro forces Lisa into puking up another kitten.

Lisa visits Jules in the hospital, with the undead Jonathan following her. But as his mother Vernocia is there, she believes he is on drugs and takes him home. This is when Jonathan turns really weird. He starts eating dog food and only responds to Lisa’s name. Lou’s solution? Have James and Ralph kill Lisa.

The ending

Jennifer’s husband & children begin waking up, although, they no longer know who or where they are. Lou shows Mary the short movie. She’s horrified to learn she ripped out her eye and then ate it. As Mary watches the horror unfold, James (on Lou’s orders) attacks Lisa before he strangles her to death.

Episode 5 of Brand New Cherry Flavor ends with an unseen woman speaking Portuguese as Lisa crawls to Jonathan. She wants him to take her to Boro.
