Cob promised to make Suzie’s life hell, and in season 2 of i hate suziehe proves to be a man of his word.
At the end of the first season, Suzie faced an existential crisis over her sex photo scandal. Her marriage was beyond shattered, which pushed her to finally make the decision to leave. And as if things weren’t messy enough, she found out she was pregnant too! talk about it theatre. (Need a refresher? Read our latest roundup here.)
When we first meet Suzie again (all three episodes of Season 2 are now available to stream on HBO Max), she appears on a celebrity dance show called Dance Crazee. She wears a full clown robe as she performs a wildly weird dance that has to be seen to be believed. However, her hopes of winning over the public and achieving image rehabilitation are ignited when she becomes the first celebrity to be eliminated from the competition. In pure Suzie fashion, she’s overwhelmed, embarrassed, and a total wreck.
After her new agent reassures her it’s not as bad as it seems, we flash back six months to learn that she’s living with her sister and has decided to terminate her pregnancy. Back in the present, Cob ruthlessly makes her pay for her indiscretions. He is legally entitled to 50 percent of her income, and he wants the house and Frank to be home for Christmas too.
Suzie calls her former agent, Naomi, and the estranged friends agree to break the ice. Neither of them are currently drinking, but after sharing a few laughs and a few free drinks, the fiendish duo are back in action. “Just One” turns into shots and MDMA, which (you guessed it!) will definitely come back to haunt Suzie later.
That Dance Crazee The producers end up offering her a chance to return to the show after one of the other contestants says goodbye. Despite wanting to crawl into a hole and die, she accepts the offer and returns to rehearsals. In the next live show, the contestants are paired and Suzie narrowly avoids elimination after Bailey, her ex-husband, chose her to be his partner. (sorry Otis!)
After the show, Frank calls to speak to his mother, only to be rudely interrupted by Cob, who ends the call. This ignites a fire under Suzie, who is still furious at all of Cob’s demands and promises herself that she will WIN. In life? The show? Maybe both?
