‘Ordinary Joe’ Recap: The Final Season 1, Episode 13 – Joe/Jenny Music

Warning: The following contains spoilers for Monday Ordinary Joe final’s night. Proceed at your own risk!

Ordinary Joe ends its season by rocking things, romantically, for all three of its main characters.

After flipping over and nearly dying, Music Joe received a visit from Jenny, who confessed that she must would like lived after her mother’s death and gave up their child for adoption. Now he needed to do the same, so Joe went to rehab. But he wasn’t there for long, leaving at the end of the episode to go to Jenny’s doorstep and tell her he wanted to live… with her.

Meanwhile, Officer Joe impulsively proposes to Amy after she announces that she’s moving to Miami to run her mother’s campaign, and Nurse Joe surprises Jenny in Atlanta, where he asks her to renew their oath. Little did he know that Barrett had also made a big offer to Jenny: to stay in Atlanta and start a company with him.

Below, executive producers Russel Friend and Garrett Lerner break down those factors and reveal what viewers should know about Cop and Nurse Joe’s glimpse into the world of Music Joe. (For the scoop on the program’s renewal odds, click here.)

TVLINE | When Music Joe saw Sheriff Joe and Nurse Joe as he was admitted to the hospital, what was he seeing in that moment?
RUSSEL FRIENDS | Obviously, he’s in this frenzied state where he’s in and out of consciousness, and what we’re trying to convey comes down to the show’s central question, which is, “Wow. , what if?” [Music Joe is] there’s this existential crisis, in a way. So we hope it conveys this idea that like now he just sees other paths he could have taken. That was what was going on in his brain, and then he fell into a state of complete unconsciousness. Honestly, we also thought it would be really cool, fun and exciting to take advantage of him being in this hallucinatory state. That’s how the idea for his ghostly father came to him [came about]. We think we can really take advantage of this and have fun with it, and just as we want to, let’s make sure it’s all character-centric. So basically it’s all coming out of his crisis and rock bottom.

TVLINE | Literally, though, should viewers let him see the other Joes? Is that something more symbolic? Or is he really peering through the curtain, so to speak, to other timelines?
GARRETT LERNER |
I like to leave it open to interpretation. I like the rationale that he was near death, and he do flat, we hear that. What our culture has in common is that your life unfolds before your eyes, but I like the idea that life flashing before your eyes, instead of just yours life flashing before your eyes. It’s nice to think about it to that extent, but I don’t want to impose on the audience that they right literally understood. I remember Russ and I were in Atlanta, just talking about the car accident, and sputtering like, “What if the first person on the scene was his dad?” and we love that idea. It grew out of that, like if his dad was the first to show up at the scene, all bets would be off. We can do whatever we want for a bit, because he’s hallucinating. And then when we came up with the idea of ​​traversing the worlds in a psychedelic state, that’s just what we found really interesting.

TVLINE | When Music Joe comes to Jenny at the end of the episode and says he wants to be with her, he’s just left rehab, his marriage is in trouble. So how is he obviously thinking about Jenny? Do they really belong together?
FRIEND | Like Garrett said, we obviously hope that each audience member can bring their own feel to that or an idea of ​​that. This may not be the right explanation, but our feeling and interpretation is that he’s not in a very good place. He believed, in that moment, that it was the right thing to do, that perhaps Jenny could be the solution to all his problems and the panacea, [like], “If I choose her, everything will be better.” Then, as a spectator, we have the advantage of knowing, well, if you cast her, you’ll be a nurse, and you’ll have challenges as well. No choice is necessarily right. But in our mind, this is probably not a great choice at this point, as he has really bottomed out. He’s not thinking straight, he’s having this existential crisis. As you said, his marriage basically broke down. Our view is that he is authentic, passionate and sincere about this choice, and that he believes that he loves Jenny, and he should have done this. But whether he’s really in the right mind to make big life decisions is the bigger question. We love its cliff edge, and where could that go?

Joe's usual summaryTVLINE | However, will she still have feelings for him?
FRIEND | I think so. I think, on a very basic level in every world, they have love for each other, whether it’s friendship or romantic love, obviously, in their marriage. So I think she does. Is she in love with him? I do not think so. But who knows? We can explore that in Part 2.
LERNER | We won’t be able to ignore the fact that she’s a married woman with twin daughters, and that’s clearly the number one priority. Her marriage was definitely in turmoil, when her husband Darren learned secretly that she had this child, and that she never told him about it, and her priorities. would be to fix his marriage. But what’s beautiful and messy about the whole thing is, as Russ said, she also has this love for Joe, and Joe is someone who is clearly in need at this point. That’s what makes it so fun, like, what’s her next move? What is her next sentence? Where we want to leave each story is right where we started, at a fork in the road.

TVLINE | Police Joe, like Music Joe, is the type to act uncharacteristically and propose to Amy perhaps not under the most ideal, romantic circumstances. So, what can you say about Amy’s top position in relation to that proposal?
FRIEND | I think they love each other, but can also be said to be a bit impulsive. She was stepping on the horns of a dilemma. It was a big decision for her, and how can she balance the two? Obviously, it would be a dream for her to return home and run her mother’s campaign, and that’s what her whole life has led, in a sense. But she loves Joe. So what do you do? Maybe they moved to Miami? Maybe they have a long-distance thing? Again, going back to the fork of it all, we’re not sure, so we hope that encourages audiences to want to see more.

Joe's usual summaryTVLINE | The fact that things are falling apart for Music Joe and Amy, is that a hint of trouble for Sheriff Joe and Amy? That they might have similar problems?
FRIEND | It may be. We love the concept that all the worlds talk to each other, in a sense. But another thing that we find interesting is, perhaps another important thing in life is time. So maybe Joe and Amy got to know each other 10 years ago, in the end, maybe we found out it wasn’t going to work out. But perhaps with Amy and Cop Joe starting their relationship in the present, perhaps they can somewhat avoid the obstacles that Music Joe and Amy pose. She told him she couldn’t have children, and they had that talk. So hopefully that won’t be a big deal in their relationship, and what else they can figure out, if they both decide they want a family. Whereas in the music world, it was what defined their marriage, in a way, the fact that they found out she couldn’t have children, and they went through IVF, and then it was all the emotions of that, and pregnancy loss. So maybe that’s something they can avoid in the police world, and maybe that will help their relationship.

Joe's usual summaryTVLINE | Then you have Nurse Joe asking Jenny to renew their vows, only to find Barrett in her room. Was all the PG in there before he showed up?
LERNER | [Laughs] Yes, I think so. I would say it’s PG. Barrett and Jenny care about each other, but as we saw in Episode 12, Barrett isn’t going to cross those lines. I don’t think Jenny will cross those lines, despite how drunk she is in Episode 12. But they are connected, and they care about each other, and he flirts with her not necessarily. romance, but rather as a business partner and a way to change the lives of both. And that, obviously, then hits Joe and Chris, and things get messy, and things get complicated. I don’t think Joe just shows up late, right after whatever R-rated is happening. [Laughs] But surprisingly [Barrett] been in there and will be surprised when [Joe] find out why he’s there, because he asked her to stay in Atlanta. Joe made this selfless gesture to say, “Come to Atlanta and achieve your dreams”, and then to find out that she is now entertainingly staying in Atlanta – not without him, but [they] didn’t even talk about it together. That’s what we wanted to build on at the end, and what the final voiceover, in the end, is about: the show’s premise is about how your decisions write your life story and perceptions in The end of Part 1 isn’t just your decision. It is also someone else’s decision.

TVLINE | There’s also the Kinsley element, and he keeps that secret from Jenny, and also puts Eric and Amy in the awkward position of telling them about the kiss.
FRIEND | Correct. That’s a really good point. We like that too because Amy and Jenny are friends, Eric and Jenny [are friends], they are all friends. What are you doing now? It’s a dilemma or reality that we like to deal with from the character’s point of view. Where does that put them? Did they tell her? It was just a small kiss, but technically he was cheating on her, if you want to look at it that way. But then he realized he was wrong. We love that moral gray area.
