Just when I thought Zoey going to a medium would be the show’s jumping the shark moment, it pulls off a “funky” original episode that showcases why there’s still magic left. In this week’s touching episode, Zoey’s powers get jumbled and each heart song is sung by a different lead. Cut to Mo, using her LAW AND ORDER: SVU skills to hilariously aid her in determining who’s singing what song.
For how annoying Max (Skylar Astin) has been, the creators finally give him his moment to shine. He kills it with his pitch-perfect emotional rendition of Demi Lovato’s ANYONE.
Even when the show settles on bad TV tropes, the mystery of who’s behind the soul-crushing song will keep you hooked to the last tear-inducing scene.
For Zoey, “love is on the brain,” yet the characters around her are finally going through more than just champagne problems. By using a new mechanism for Zoey’s powers, the show dives into the supporting cast’s narratives and delivers season two’s best episode to date.
It’s available to sing along to on Peacock / NBC.
