Master of None Door #3 Season 2 Episode 7 Recap
On the show his lazy producer continues to find ways to stress him out, this time by bringing on a “Z list” celebrity judge, a magician played by Cedric the Entertainer. Though the magician isn’t exactly made for television, Dev motivates him and encourages him to do his best. The segment he’s a part of still ends up being a disaster when he injures his hand botching a stunt. All this gives Dev further proof that he’s probably better than being a show host but he turns to his father for advice.
While this is going on Dev continues to hang out with Francesca and goes along with her to an outdoor museum in Upstate New York that ends up being a very romantic outing. It’s clear he’s falling for her but it’s unclear how she feels towards him, though she does seem to have reservations about getting married to her partner.
When Dev meets with his father, he learns that even his dad has to deal with being unfulfilled at work. A major part of his job requires pulling foreign objects out of peoples’ behinds but he manages to find the humor in it. Master of None has always been great highlighting how much Dev honors his parents and it’s clear he values them in his life, something many shows don’t really reveal in it’s young main characters.
Ultimately Dev decides there is a third option to his work predicament. Instead of continuing on as show host, he pitches a food travel show staring him and Chef Jeff, similar to Anthony Bourdain. Chef Jeff ends up loving the idea and decides to go along with it. Dev doesn’t end up celebrating too much though because it’s shortly after this he learns Francesca is going forward with her marriage.
