Issa Season 1 Recap
Quick recap if your not hip (please get it together!) Season 1 introduces us to Issa, a late 20 early 30’s African American female living in California with her than bf Lawrence. She has a good job shes educated and have a group of eccentric friends. We learn that Issa ain’t too happy in her relationship; Currently Lawrence ain’t working and they on that boring stage. You know where the part where grass is looking greener on the other side of ur dull ass yard. (harsh?!) The prettier grass is in the form of Issa’s college friend who she always wanted to sit on but never quite the coverage to do so. While Issa is trying calm her puss; her Bestie Molly, an affluent African American Attorney in a prominent Law Firm, cant seem to keep a man (aka broken pussy). Season Ones trials and tributes can be found on HBO On Demand so dont make me go into detail (PLUS U HAD ALL SUMMER TO BE DOWN WITH THE GET DOWN!) To end it the recap off swiftly, Issa cheats on Lawrence that decision forces a rift between molly and herself. She also realize she dont even like Ole Boy she much rather be with her baby (and my god hes fine!) Lawrence now GLOWED UP WITH A NEW TECH START UP JOB AND SHIT, finds out and ugh proceeds to have a great time with his bank teller (Bye #LawerenceHive) The last episode shows Issa smoothing things over with her bestest (AS WE ALL SHOULD) But losing her man whats a girl to do now?!

She real life aint into it But HEY gotta keep her mind off Lawrence somehow, speaking of Lawrence, His first intro, fucking of course! Giving his Teller Bae that Side way Stroke (MY FAVVVEE). It seems the two are now dating, or Lawrence is rebounding her good by Keeping her ready and available Friday to Sunday than go and stay with one of his homeboy while giving him the “what are we” speech “Pressure Breaks Pipes” My favorite saying in that scene lol. Lawrence got some Mail he needs to pick up from Issa’s Buuuttt he aint trynna do that specially since its noted that couple of months has passed since he biggity bounced.
