Famous in Love Prelude to a Diss Season 1 Episode 4 Recap – The cameras are rolling and it is the first day of shooting Locked. How will Paige do?
Famous in Love Prelude to a Diss Season 1 Episode 4 Recap
A Day at the Office
Her first day on set doesn’t go well. The pressure starts to get to her as she realizes what a big picture Locked really is, with so much money and so many jobs riding on her.
Things don’t get easier when Rainer asks Paige out on a date. He gives her a necklace, which is in keeping with his MO for dating, and she turns him down, not wanting to be just another co-star he’s gone through.
Multiple scenes go wrong, first because no one informs Paige that scenes have been switched around, and then because no one has walked her through acting with CGI. The director lashes out at her, telling her that if she doesn’t do better tomorrow, she’s fired. It feels a bit unbelievable that no one would have prepared her better than this, with apparently zero rehearsal time and no work put into making Paige, someone they know is inexperienced, ready for the cameras. But Famous in Love has been a bit of a fairy tale from episode one and you can suspend some disbelief and just enjoy the ride along with Paige.
Cassie’s is running out of time to make her tuition payment. She takes on more clients but even that’s not enough, and one of them even propositions her.
With only a day left to make her payment, Cassie pawns a bracelet that Paige gave her. On the bright side, when she goes to visit Paige on set, she hits it off with her personal assistant Adam.
Friendships and Relationships
Rainer and Jordan are getting along must better, but Jordan’s relationship with Nina is still likely to cause havoc there somewhere down the road.
Tangey also wants to try a relationship with Jordan, but he rejects her, using his friendship with Rainer as an excuse. But Rainer, learning about this, gives Jordan his blessing.
Music and Mothers
Tangey is also eager to try a new kind of music, and has written several country songs. Her mother, who is also her manager, has always called the shots, and she insists that Tangey stick with what made her famous.
But whilst performing on TV, Tangey switches songs without her mother’s permission and performs one of her country songs. It’s quite well received but her mother still insists that Tangey never do it again, pointing out how difficult it is to be a successful black country singer. Tangey decides to fire her.
Tangey hasn’t gotten too much screen time before now, but this episode we really got to know her better and I’m interested to see where her storyline goes from here. Her interest in reshaping her career could be a really interesting plot.
Jordon points out to Rainer why the necklace might have scared Paige off and suggests that he try being her friend first. So Rainer and Paige talk and agree to be friends, with the possibility of a date after the movie is finished.
Rainer and Paige film a scene and she does a phenomenal job, making up for her work the day before. The scene also ends with a kiss between the pair, a kiss that goes on for several seconds after the director calls cut.
