A season-ender has never been so political. In last week’s episode, Barry tasked LaToya with coming up with something special. What does she do? She over prepares for the show and turns it into “LaToya’s Stacks with LaToya featuring Barry.” If you haven’t gotten enough real-life COVID and Trump-driven dose of reality, you’ll get it here. It’s a lot to pack in before their two-week hiatus.

My Corona! It’s the Coronavirus episode of the show as all talks turn to the pandemic. Seasons are being suspended (not ours), and industries are putting into place contingency plans. There’s even a run on toilet paper! The hosts wonder, when will the topic not be one you can joke about? LaToya is about to see her workload and income shift while Barry feels he’s superhuman and can repel the virus. Both avid soccer fans and cinephiles, they are saddened by the avalanche effect of COVID-19 and the escapism entertainment they love.
