Season 3 of ‘Atlanta’ is a Surprising, Stunning Masterclass: TV Review
‘All I could think was, why isn’t anyone stopping us? “How come nobody stopped us?”
Amber (Laura Dreyfuss) talks to her wife (Jamie Neumann), who is involved in a plot that has spiraled out of control for one of these two white women. They have displayed both a deep and astonishing inhumanity, the bleak capriciousness of racism and the ease with which new laws can be devised by those in charge, as if it were for their own pleasure.
This is both ‘Atlanta’ and ‘Non-Atlanta’. Returning on air for the first time since 2018, the show ditched its characters for this episode, moving beyond the story to deliver a floor of astonishing power. Leave it to “Atlanta” to return after nearly four years with an episode that featured next to nothing from the cast except a quick cameo from Donald Glover, also the show’s creator at the end. The program previously experimented with form: “BAN” from the first season was an episode-long piece of media criticism that took the form of a 30-minute broadcast from a fictional TV network. However, reintroducing ourselves to the world of “Atlanta” without the familiar tools of the show Glover’s, Zazie Beetz’s, LaKeith Stanfield’s and Brian Tyree Henry’s performances, as well as the social milieu in which they float, is a task only a show can trust. would try his ambitions.
And “Atlanta” comes to the occasion and delivers an episode that convinces you that its story needs to be told. The sheer certainty of the opening episode, as well as the deep concern to look uncomfortably hard and discover the bleak comedy and ridiculous tragedy in American life, is exactly what makes this show great again.
The premiere focuses on Loquareeous (Christopher Farrar, excellent), a young man eager to act in class; we see him spinning a pencil impatiently, lost in thought until his teacher shares some good news with the class, at which point he jumps up and dances, encouraged by his classmates. This dance is the catalyst for a slow-motion tragedy: His mother and grandfather are called to school and furiously yell and slap at him (the “Three Slaps” that give this episode its title). A well-meaning and otherwise white school social worker contacts Child Protective Services and Loquareeous soon lives with two white women as the fourth of their children. They’re all adopted or raised, and they’re all black.
The storyline of the episode is quite simple. For example, the social worker is faced with a difficult situation: Loquareeous’ mother and grandfather are concerned about his future as a black man in this country and want more for him, even if their expression seems harsh or just plain inappropriate. And it comes forth with the genuine assurance of a true believer. “Don’t worry, I’ll get you out of there,” this self-proclaimed rescuer mutters to Loquareeous. And where she receives him is a household that has been revealed from the beginning to be a place where Blackness is both fetishized and erased: it’s significant that Loquareeous is Black, because that means he needs to be rescued. But to save him, these white ladies want to make sure nothing of him remains, not even his name: they give him a towel embroidered with the word ‘Larry’ and that’s how they refer to him.
This episode appears to be inspired by the 2018 massacre in which two white women, a married couple, butchered their six adopted children (all of whom were black); that awful story, like “Three Slaps,” stands at a crossroads of race, class, and madness. Both the anecdote and the episode that followed are terrible examples of how certain white adoptive parents view black children as saviors rather than just love.
However, there is also something transformational about it. The real deepening is almost too depressing to fathom, but writer Stephen Glover finds unbearable insight in tracing its aspects, which include not only abuse, but also attempts by white parents to dominate and reshape children of color. On the other hand, the deepening of the show could have been nihilistic; instead, there’s a penetrating, open curiosity that reaches all the way to the ladies themselves. Despite the clarity of the story, there’s a willingness to be perplexed that has always been a part of ‘Atlanta’. The lady at the heart of the madness of this story is given a chance to explain herself, and all she can say is that some force stronger than whites should have stepped in to stop them. What remains is the mind-boggling logic of racial hatred.
Stephen Glover and director Hiro Murai (both executive producers of the show) created an episode that stands out yet fits into the series. “Atlanta”‘s willingness to change itself isn’t limited to exceptional episodes like this one: this season, the action revolves around our main characters in Europe, where Paper Boi (Brian Tyree Henry) is on a concert tour for mostly white viewers. The second episode of the season is more recognizable as “Atlanta,” and it’s a lot like America in some ways: our heroes are accosted every step of the way by white Europeans clad in blackface as part of a Christmas celebration that quickly changes the look and feel of a society-wide parade of ridicule. Glover, the star of the series, continues to discover new methods to show a kind of unsurprised insecurity, confused by what is happening around him, but not surprised that it is incomprehensible.
“Atlanta” has a keen ear for such sounds, the mind-boggling, predictable components of a white misinterpretation of black existence. The women baking fried chicken in a microwave is an early indication that “Three Slaps” is appearing in the register of the likeness, which is an unusually broad type of business. But the spectacle continues and this chicken soup becomes a metaphor for everything Loquareeous is obliged to eat.
When the show ends, viewers will likely remember how it started: With an apparently unrelated story in which two friends, white and black, are fishing on a lake, the white fisherman gradually reveals that the lake was built after the government ran out of water. diverted to overwhelm a black settlement. The resolution of that story is too fitting to reveal here, but suffice it to say that there, as at the beginning of this current ‘Atlanta’ season, the white urge to reshape or reconstruct Blackness, to recreate it for to think of it as something that white people can enjoy (or possess) is a devouring force. And what it leaves behind is such utter devastation that you’d never know anything was ever there.
The third season of ‘Atlanta’, which premiered on SXSW on March 19, airs on FX on Thursday, March 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
