This Week's Episode Of “Pose” Might Be The Year’s Most Important TV Episode And Here’s Why

What’s it called when something that’s already the best gets even better? Beyoncé??? Whatever the word is, that’s what I’d use to describe Pose after Tuesday night’s game-changing episode, “Never Knew Love Like This Before.”

If you’d already seen the episode four preview like I had, then you knew the storyline was gonna be all about Candy Ferocity.

The trailer showed her beefing with Pray Tell (per usual), voguing, and ultimately vanishing. “FINALLY!!!” I thought to myself. “A Candy episode.”

So, when Blanca revealed early on in the episode that Candy had been found brutally murdered in a dingy hotel, I couldn’t believe it. I refused. Not Miss Caaaandy. But then, the funeral began and reality set in.

To be clear, Pose will never be the same after Candy/Angelica Ross’ departure. The absence of her fierce, resilient, and loving spirit will be felt by characters and fans alike.

But between Ryan Murphy and Janet Mock’s painstakingly deft storytelling and Angelica’s breathtaking, yet undoubtedly triggering portrayal of the inimitable Candy Ferocity, “Never Knew Love Like This Before” will foster allies, mend families, and ultimately save lives.
