Recap

Turkey Basting: Jay

Due to his home environment, Jay finds himself torn between his urges for women and men and thus tries to suppress himself to keep from any sexual satisfaction. Leading to him becoming a bit more high strong than usual and eventually succumbing to his urges – by having sex with a turkey.

Girls v. Boys: Nick, Jessi, Devin, Lizer, Andrew, Jay

After Jay cuts off the tip of Andrew’s finger, the girls get blamed for being a “distraction.” Leading to Lizer, since the principal is retiring within two months, taking it upon himself to make a dress code. This doesn’t sit well with Jessi, nor Devin, so they have a protest and dress provocatively. Leading to Andrew saying all the wrong things, and Nick doing the same, as he struggles to be an ally.

Leading to Lizer, to try to bring on some sense of equality, for now, the parents are mad, having everyone wear uniforms.

Welcome To The Dark Side: Missy

Mirror Missy doing what a hormone monster should.
Mirror Missy: Bull honky! You’re not sad, you’re angry.

During all the chaos of the Boys v. Girls war, Missy is trying to support the girls but not necessarily be confrontational. That doesn’t work out well for Missy is coming to the point of being tired of people punking her, ostracizing her, and not supporting her. Hence her dark side coming out, and she decides to take everyone down a peg. She comes for the girls, the boys – especially Jay, and reminds Andrew they dated for 5 days, and he needs to move on!

Highlights

Jay’s Struggle With His Bi-sexuality

Being that Jay lives in a suppressive household, and there aren’t any notable bi-sexual men who look like Jay, you have to love how challenging they are making his journey to acceptance. Granted, they are mostly focusing on the sexual aspect, not intimacy, but you remember Jay’s relationship with Missi, right? I don’t think anyone has the patience for Jay’s manic side and his need to feel loved.

Connie Trying To Be The Hormone Monster For Jessi and Nick

While it doesn’t happen this episode, you know sooner or later Jessi is going to give Connie an ultimatum, and that is going to be wonderful to watch. Primarily due to Connie having long been Jessi’s monster, and this causing a conflict of interest. For while Jessi and Nick are generally cool, you know something is going to go wrong. Nick, usually, is more so an ally than an ass****, but between him triggering Jessi or Connie slipping up while she attempts to do double duty, you know we’re bound for a hilarious moment.

The only question is, will Connie mess up so bad that she may get reassigned or the depression kitty may get another shot at Jessi? If not come for Nick?

Nick Being Called Out As A Ineffective Ally

Lean berating Nick on not being a good ally.
Leah: Because your dumbass, misogynist friends might listen to you.

Some men think just showing up, but not saying a damn thing, allows them to be an ally. However, allyship is far more complicated and isn’t a one size fits all title. What Jessi needed from Nick was someone to back her up, specifically a guy. Yet, other times, what she may need is for him just to be there, be willing to have a tough conversation, apologize, or just let her get the last word.

What we’re given is a showing of how complicated it can be for men, but simple if the question: How can I help? Is asked, alongside just using your common sense.

Showing How Girls Pay For Boys Crimes

It’s sad but true, most punishments which are supposed to be universal likely hurt girls the most. Dress codes? Well, between uniforms not made for winter, or grown men now analyzing you worse than the boys, things don’t get better. And this is just the beginning. Considering Andrew nearly slipped into a pro-man, nazi incel group, we may see more of how women are held accountable for the refusal of holding men accountable for their actions.

Evil Missy

Considering how Jessi rebelled in the first two seasons, it should be interesting to see how Missy handles the troughs of puberty. Heck, maybe Connie may come back around and guide Missy? If not us getting a whole new hormone monster since Missy seemingly is a late bloomer. Well, if we are to consider her newfound abilities to stand up for herself related to her hormones and not simply her getting sick and tired of being the example used for someone plain, unattractive, and pedestrian.

Big Mouth: Season 2 – Recap/ Review

Big Mouth season 2 tackles shame, Planned Parenthood, female pleasure, and so much more. All the while seeming like it is more so edutainment than just raunchy good fun.

Season 2/ Episode 10 "The Department of Puberty"

From seeing the world where the Hormone Monsters and Shame Wizard comes from, to meeting Nick’s new hormone monster, the finale packs a punch.

Season 2/ Episode 9 “Smooch or Share”

As many characters face the truth, accept it as well, it loosens the power the monsters and wizard has over them. Perhaps making things worse.

Season 2/ Episode 8 “Dark Side of the Boob”

The Shame Wizard goes into overtime and it seems Connie, Tyler, and Maury aren’t willing or able to do a thing about it.

Season 2/ Episode 7 “Guy Town”

Matthew finally gets recognized for more than his sass and with as Nick finally gets a new hormone monster!

Season 2/ Episode 6 “Drug Buddies”

Jessie gets Nick high, Lila and Andrew become a thing and the Shame Wizard finally gets what he wanted.

Season 2/ Episode 5 “The Planned Parenthood Show”

It’s a sex ed episode, which features all the things Planned Parenthood does — beyond abortions. A fraction of the services they provide.

Season 2/ Episode 4 “Steve The Virgin”

Steve has the opportunity to have sex, with someone who isn’t a sex worker, and the Shame Wizard tries to claim another child.

Season 1/ Episode 1 “Ejaculation”

Big Mouth seems like it will be the few Netflix series, this year, to deserve a long lifespan on the network.

Season 1/ Episode 2 “Everybody Bleeds”

It’s a big day for Jessi. Nick has seemingly evolved into her boyfriend and then she meets the Hormone Monstress.

Season 1/ Episode 3 “Am I Gay?”

In this episode of "Big Mouth," Andrew questions his sexuality as Jessi and Nick devolve their relationship back to a friendship.

Season 1/ Episode 4 “Sleepover: A Harrowing Ordeal of Emotional Brutality”

The boys and girls go to their respective sleepovers and while the boys avoid jizz, Jessi is just trying to avoid hurting people’s feelings.

Season 1/ Episode 5 “Girls Are Horny Too”

After so much time on Big Mouth spent on hearing the boys talk about porn and masturbation, it’s ladies night.

Season 1/ Episode 6 “Pillow Talk”

Two kids from Westchester head to the big city and learn what secrets are hidden within it. Meanwhile, Jay gets his pillow pregnant.

Season 1/ Episode 7 “Requiem for a Wet Dream”

As Jay continues to be abused, Coach Steve makes a friend. Also, Andrew and Missy confess their feelings for one another.

Season 1/ Episode 8 “The Head Push”

Consent is a big focus on this episode of Big Mouth as we learn about someone commonly known as “The Head Pusher.”

Season 1/ Episode 9 “I Survived Jessi’s Bat Mitzvah”

Between kids and parents or lovers, there aren't many happy relationships. But, there's always ghosts, friends & your friend’s mom.

Season 1/ Episode 10 “The Pornscape”

Hasn’t it all led to this? A masturbation addiction and a bunch of emotional boys doing foolish things to deal with their hormones?

Season 1 – Recap/ Review

Big Mouth presents the vulgarity of South Park, alongside having the type of heart that the Disney Channel has recently afforded its shows.

Season 2/ Episode 1 “Am I Normal?”

We pick up where we left off and Nick is starting to wonder if puberty may ever start to kick in.

Season 2/ Episode 2 “What Is It about Boobs?”

Big Mouth continues to make sure the girls of the show aren’t forgotten as it dives into body image issues and learning to love yourself.

Season 2/ Episode 3 “The Shame Wizard”

It seems the being that haunted Missy finds its way to Andrew. As that happens, Jessie becomes more rebellious and Nick tries to woo Gina.
