What happens in season 2 of Sorry for your loss†
In the season finale of “Sorry For Your Loss,” Leigh Shaw (Elizabeth Olsen) deals with the fallout from Danny Greer’s (Jovan Adepo) revelation about Matt Greer’s (Mamoudou Athie) obsession with his co-worker Nina (Khalilah Joi). Amy (Janet McTeer) also makes a triumphant comeback in this episode as Jules (Kelly Marie Tran) prepares for her trip to Vietnam.
Leigh was eager to “consciously fantasize” about Matt again early this season. Even her first amorous encounter with Danny was cut short by a (pleasant) image of Matt. For Leigh, being with Danny was a means of “sharing” her Matt-related memories (and grief at losing him).
All this is confused when Danny informs her about Nina in the previous episode. After confronting Nina, who claims that Matt made her feel “special” and that she too has left a “hole” in her life because of Matt, she bursts into anger.
Later, she complains to Drew, her editor, about how much she despises Nina, Matt, herself, and everyone else. The show then delves into the horror genre when Matt visits her in a nightmare where she is replaced by Nina at the dinner table and in all the pictures of couples in love.
Instead of her, Nina is his ‘special’. In a strange way, it’s like Matt is completely lost again. While Leigh quietly cries, Matt stares her straight in the eye and whispers, “I’m still here.” Heart pounding, she descends to seek comfort from old faces, only to hear her mother, Amy, tell Jules she’s selling the house.
Amy, who has gone on her own journey and is no longer responsible for the eternal caretaker, finds it an essential step for all of them. “I made a nest and never fully matured you two because I didn’t want to be alone,” she explains, as they both seem a little terrified at the prospect of losing their safety net.
For Amy, however, the nest is a cage that has kept her captive for years. Jules has bought a one-way ticket to Vietnam indefinitely. She had finally dealt with ‘her problems’, as Tommy (Briana Venskus) wished. Thus, she understands her mother’s actions in a certain way.
Amy’s choice couldn’t have come at a worse time for Leigh, who has yet to come to terms with Matt’s attraction to someone else and the loss of Danny as a friend and lover. She anticipates the next “terrible event”.
As a result, when Jules invites her to accompany her to Vietnam, she accepts. Amy is shown hugging and wishing her girls goodbye in the visual bookend, just like her daughters did in the season opener. However, when their cab starts to pull away and travel a few yards, Leigh has a vision of Matt in front of the car.
She exits the vehicle and flees from this appearance of Matt (instead of towards him as she has been all season). When she reaches her mother, she dries up and spits, “Matt will never let me down.”
It’s the second emotional bookend of the season as it ends. While Amy and Jules have matured as individuals, Leigh, like Danny, remains shattered. Danny emotionally reaches out one-on-one to his own mother, who helps him move into his apartment.
He is well aware that his actions have resulted in the loss of friends and Leigh. He tells his mom that, like his shattered fist, he initially felt fine after Matt’s death—until the delayed terror set in.
Danny and Leigh, who were closest to Matt, will need a little more time to work their way through the grieving process.
Why was Sorry for your loss Canceled after two seasons?
Critics have responded positively to the series since its launch. The series now holds a 93 percent approval rating on the review compilation website Rotten Tomatoes, with an average rating of 7.58 out of 10 based on 30 reviews. According to the website’s critical consensus, “Very honest and intelligent, Sorry For Your Loss takes on a delicate subject with a light touch.” Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, gave the series an 83 out of 100 ratings based on the opinions of 12 reviewers, indicating “universal acclaim.”
Sophie Gilbert of The Atlantic praised the episode in a positive review, characterizing it as the “kind of series that is so fully formed, so witty and candid and painful from the start, that you almost question its emotional appropriateness.”
Kevin Fallon of The Daily Beast was also enthusiastic about the series ‘Sorry For Your Loss is a rare find. With a cast this strong – Olsen is an Avenger; Tran is a Star Wars graduate; and McTeer is a recognized Oscar nominee – a series so well executed would normally be a highlight of the fall television season.” Collider’s Allison Keene praised the program in another great review, writing, “Sorry for your loss is an emotionally charged, deep meditation on grief. And yet it’s never overwhelming in the same way that it’s captivating.” Salon’s Melanie McFarland further praised the cast’s performance, writing, “The emotions that Olsen, Tran and the rest of the cast capture come across as real and natural, more affirmative than depressing, a difficult balancing act to accomplish even in the most conventional of dramas and during the better months.”
Slate’s Inkoo Kang gave the series a more mixed review, writing, “Sorry for your loss cannot be reduced to the sum of its parts, despite its noble goals and consistently excellent performances. His acute sensibility draws attention to the lack of real , accessible shows about loss, but doesn’t meet that need.” Ben Travers of IndieWire awarded the series a “C-” in a bad review, describing it as “nothing more than a puffy meditation on mortality, giving a puffy reminder that the end is inevitable for all of us and perhaps heartbreaking for those which we left behind.”
