This article contains predictions for the Hulu series The Girl from Plainville season 1, episode 4.
In “Never Have I Ever”, the detectives finally acquire all the phone conversations between Michelle and Conrad. With this crucial information, they can now plan their line of attack in framing the girl for Conrad’s suicide. Michelle is struggling to keep all her lies together and starts to come apart at the seams. Here’s what happened in episode three of The Girl from Plainville:
- In flashbacks, we discovered how Michelle and Conrad met. Their holiday romance lasted all but a few days and then they were whisked back to normality. They didn’t really keep in touch, but as Conrad started to relapse, he contacted Michelle as a cry for help. The two spoke for a while about how to deal with life’s many issues, with Michelle suggesting making a checklist.
- Back in the present and the detectives are hot on the case. Detective Gordon believes he can accuse Michelle of manslaughter. He asks for the help of Katie Rayburn, who gets him a warrant for Michelle’s electronic devices.
- Detective Gordon shows up at Michelle’s school and takes her phone. When questioned she lies about the details concerning Conrad’s last night, but then quickly changes her story. Michelle can’t seem to help but lie, she’s constantly creating this fake façade to hide behind and twisting her own narrative.
- Katie starts to read through all the couple’s phone history and feels like she’s hit a wall. Then she discovers a possibly incriminating text message Michelle sent to Natalie.
- Michelle looks through a box of memories and has a breakdown, trying to rip apart the bunny ears. She screams and throws the box against her bedroom wall.
- Conrad’s mother Lynn struggles to cope with the death of her child. She drinks too much with her friend and at home, she buries a dead rabbit. This has a symbolic implication, as she is both figuratively and physically burying something, coming to terms with his death in an unusual way.
