Russian Doll Ep. 2: The Great Escape

As we join Episode 2, Nadia (Natasha Lyonne) wakes up on her mattress, burns her finger and heads into work. On the way she visits her local store and questions Farran (Ritesh Rajan)  about his friend from the previous night but as this occurred in a timeline where Nadia died Farran does not remember it.

At work Nadia fixes a computer bug during a meeting but has to leave early to see her drug dealer War Dog (Waris Ahluwalia) at his bar (the same bar Luke Cage once owned in Jessica Jones!). Nadia believes that War Dog’s drug might explain what she is experiencing. Later whilst arguing with her ex-husband John (Yul Vazquez) on the phone, Nadia dies again.

Awakening back in the rest room once more, Nadia rushes straight to see War Dog now believing the cocaine he put in her joint is causing this. War Dog introduces Nadia to his new cocaine provider, Dr. Daniel, who confesses it was ketamine, not cocaine. It was purported to be a remedy for despair in most cancers sufferers. Nadia shouts at them and leaves where she spots Ferran and his friend leaving a bar but then falls down a cellar doorway and dies.

Awakening once more, Nadia storms out of the rest room and later falls down the stairs and dies, she dies a few more times becoming more manic each time. Eventually she stays at the party.

The next morning Nadia wakes up at the party with carnage all around her, including her friend Lizzy (Rebecca Henderson) entwined in some sort of orgy aftermath. Later Nadia chats with her mother Ruth (Elizabeth Ashley) who reminds her of the phrase Nadia selected as an adolescent to let Ruth know when issues have been actually dangerous. Nadia stated, “File Participant,” and Ruth supplied to name her buddy from Bellevue.

Ruth promised to comply with the ambulance in a cab, however alone with the lads within the ambulance, Nadia modified her thoughts about going. They wrestled her, and a automotive crashed into the ambulance killing Nadia.

Awakening once more, Nadia walks passed a bouquet of flowers in a vase that begin to rapidly wilt…

Verdict: 7/10 Another great episode that let us into Nadia’s life a bit deeper as well as perhaps give us clues into what is happening to Nadia – even if we do not fully understand those clues yet.
