Never Have I Ever season 3, episode 4 recap
So, now that Paxton broke our girl’s heart, we hate him, right? Well, we should. The last time we saw Devi, he made our girl cry so badly she wept in her mother’s arms. Can we ever forgive him? As John McEnroe tells us, a few months have passed since the breakup, and since California does not have a change of seasons, he points to the pumpkins placed on the front doorstep. It is the Fall, and Devi is back to being the loser she feels like and now without being able to cling to Paxton’s shoulder. She can now smile at Paxton without bursting into tears but then is told even worse news — Paxton has a new girlfriend.
Navaratri has now begun to start, and for some reason, that has equal billing. Trent wants his girlfriend and best friend, that b*****d Paxton, to celebrate his 18th birthday. Since Devi does not want to see Paxton with his new girlfriend, she tells everyone she is staying home for the Hindu holiday. However, this is an authentic tradition for her family. Primarily for her, Pati, as she calls it, will “stunt” the other old ladies. How? By setting up the best gosh darn Golu the world has ever seen, or at least Southern California.
The party starts at Trent’s, and Ben manages to be condescending to a girl trying to pump beer out of a keg. Though, as he tells Fabiola, he is not condescending. He gets annoyed when people do not know how to do things. Paxton’s tall, thin, and blonde girlfriend shows up as well. This causes Eleanor to call Devi to get her butt over there. But she cannot find a window to leave until Kamala invites her new boyfriend over, Manish.
So, she gets dressed in her room, pops off that Bindi, places it on her mirror, and is about to sneak out (of an actual window) when her mother catches her. She forces her to get dressed back into her sari, and her punishment is to watch the “aunties’ chew and serve the vadais —a south Indian fried snack that can be served in different forms, but in this case as a savory doughnut.
Meanwhile, Rhyah doesn’t like her son’s friends, and he is sitting at home alone. His name is Des, and she vents to Nalini. So, she allows Devi to go to that party as long as she invites Des. To make an excuse at the party, she tells everyone Des is her cousin before he shows up there. Even though she hates the idea, she quickly changes her mind after getting a good look at him. After insulting him by assuming he would be a nerd before she met him, he sees her panic when she spots Paxton kissing another girl. However, in Devi’s defense, she points out he does for “nerd” in his name.
Des sweetly takes her back into the house for a dance. All to make Paxton jealous. After she thinks he makes sea slug school sound hot.
