Let's Talk About GLOW Season 2, Episode 6, 'Work The Leg'

Things that happened in "Work The Leg":

  • The Episode opens with Cherry training the ladies
  • Bash and Mark are debating why the time slot move (who watches tv at 2am)
  • The network guy tells them a men's wrestling show took their slot, and so Bash goes off on the ladies, telling them they need to be better
  • Yolanda and Cherry are going to have a match- Sam calls it southside rumble
  • Justine chats with Ruth in the locker room, invites her to an event that Sam is doing, saying he seems to hate Ruth less than anyone else
  • Some in fighting is happening in practice, but Carmen pulls them all out of it with a great speech.
  • And a damn training montage
  • Some really great stuff though! Seeing the progression of the moves is awesome.
  • Ruth goes to Sam's screening, and it's almost like a Parent Trap set up with Justine tapping out at the last minute so they have to sit together
  • After the screening, Sam admits he's not mad at Ruth, but is an angry old man who has severe issues.
  • They sit in the dark theater, and he admits that he usually knows why things go bad, but has NO idea what happened with GLOW's timeslot.
  • Ruth admits what happened with the exec
  • He believes her, and they share a moment of "that guy? FUCK THAT GUY"
  • While out getting her car washed, Debbie runs into her ex husband and his new girlfriend
  • Sam goes on a mission, crowbar in hand, and tracks down exec guy's car and starts smashing it
  • Glen sees Sam smash the car, but tells him "he pisses off a lot of people, could have been anyone"
  • Back at the studio, Sam invites Justine to run the booth during the show so he can film
  • Pretty great to see Sam not being as much as an asshole
  • Debbie comes in in a huff, demanding her own dressing space, and Sam gives her a flask and his office to get ready for the night
  • She does a line of coke, and man this is sending her down a path she doesn't need to visit
  • Chola JunkChain beats Black JunkChain in the match
  • Liberty Belle and Zoya have their match, and Debbie is NOT doing ok
  • You can see the moment of realization on Ruth's face, and she tries to check in with Debbie, but Debbie is checked out
  • The rest of the girls are watching from the booth, they know somethings' wrong
  • Liberty Belle gets caught up in the moment, and fucking breaks Zoya's knee.


Holy crap. Yet another example of DON'T MIX DRUGS AND ATHLETICS.

GLOW season 2 is currently streaming on Netflix.
