Insatiable Season 1 Episode 6 Recap
In the previous episode of Netflix’s Insatiable, a dog wash had put Patty back into the good graces of the Miss Magic Jesus organizers. In this episode, she must tackle another unforeseen hurdle to compete for the title: getting baptized.
The Girl Code
When Patty feigned ignorance over who Brick is now seeing, Magnolia revealed she saw Brick and Patty kiss at the dog wash. She declared war on Patty, vowing to beat her in all pageants. Patty also met Dee, a confident, plus-size pageant girl, who pointed out to Patty that being thin was nothing if she was ugly on the inside.
“The Source of All Misery Is Selfishness”
To participate in Miss Magic Jesus, Patty had to be baptized. Time was ticking to get it done before the pageant. Armstrong offered to be Patty’s godfather, but it wouldn’t be so easy.
Patty and Armstrong met with Pastor Mike, Christian’s father, for spiritual counseling. With his creepy spiritual ability of discernment, he sensed that Armstrong was not ready to be a spiritual guide for Patty. He challenged Armstrong to reach out to Brick to be a better, more supportive father to him. And he challenged Patty to be a better friend to Magnolia. Patty interpreted this as setting up Magnolia with Christian, even though she liked him.
80s Teen Movie Deal
Unfortunately, Christian liked Patty, not Magnolia. When Patty approached him about Magnolia, he came onto her hard and then left her to speak with Magnolia. He cut a deal with her to fake date, so they could make Patty and Brick jealous. It was cliché, but at least the show acknowledged it.
Since Patty was busy all weekend, Donald took Nonnie to an open mic night at a coffee shop. Donald hoped it would be a date, but Nonnie confessed that she was in love with Patty. Having rushed to the restroom, Nonnie encountered Dee, who had been singing earlier on stage. Nonnie explained her situation, and Dee gave Nonnie her number, confusing Nonnie even more.
When Armstrong interrupted Brick and Patty’s “sex date”, he also casted doubt on Brick’s motive for dating Patty. Patty left angry and ended up in Christian’s car. Patty confessed to him her fat past and desire for revenge. But before anything could happen, Brick texted her, and she left Christian behind.
A Gay Vibe
At Brick’s wrestling match, Nonnie sought out Patty to talk about what happened at the coffee shop. However, Patty complained about her boy troubles, and Nonnie stormed off. Patty followed, and Nonnie laid into her for her selfishness and kissed her. Patty said it changed nothing between them, but Nonnie insisted it changed everything.
After causing Brick to sprain his ankle at the wrestling match, Armstrong was in need of a new start. Patty and Pastor Mike convinced him to be baptized alongside Patty to symbolize the new beginning.
Before the ceremony, Magnolia had laced Patty’s drink with liquid molly. Hallucinations kick in during the baptism, and Patty saw a donut. Was it God? No, it was the God-sized hole in her, and it was telling her to be selfish. So, Patty dumped Brick and hooked up with Christian. Unfortunately, someone was filming the whole thing.
