In Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Season 1, Episode 2, Zoey wants to take control over her extraordinary talent. But is that really the best idea?
Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist premiered early in 2020 with a special preview of the first episode. Now that everyone has had a chance to watch—and, hopefully, love—the pilot, the series is set to begin airing weekly in its regular time slot on NBC.
Now that Zoey’s freaky experience getting an MRI caused her to begin hearing everyone’s innermost thoughts through musical numbers, what’s next? Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Season 1, Episode 2 is called “Zoey’s Extraordinary Best Friend,” but you’ll have to decide which best friend that tile might refer to.
Is it Mo (Alex Newell), who signs on to help Zoey (Jane Levy) try to learn everything she possibly can about her abilities? Or is it Max (Skylar Astin), whose first-episode song revealed he was in love with our heroine? Both characters play huge parts in the latest episode, so maybe it should have been called “Zoey’s Extraordinary Best Friends.”
Regardless, as we see in the Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Season 1, Episode 2 sneak peek video below, there’s just a wee bit of difficulty involved in having the music in you. In other words, her powers are not her best friends.
Zoey’s dream of a massive performance of The Kiki Dee Band’s “I’ve Got the Music in Me” becomes a nightmare when she’s literally crushed by music itself. Or, well, a piano. Close enough. And that’s just the episode’s opening!
There’s a lot of responsibility that comes along with knowing so much about everyone around you, and the timing isn’t always great either. So, it’s natural for Zoey to feel the pressure.
Can Zoey find a way to survive that pressure and get her life back to normal with Mo’s help? Should she? You’ll have to watch Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Season 1, Episode 2 to find out. Here’s a short description of the episode, courtesy of NBC MediaVillage:
Zoey tries to figure out how to control her new abilities while navigating her best friends’ romantic feelings for her. A new medical victory for Mitch gives the family hope.
Bonus: Did you miss the first episode, or do you maybe just want a chance to enjoy it all over again? The Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist pilot is now streaming on the NBC site or via the show’s official YouTube channel!
Once you’re all caught up or, like some of us, have watched enough times to start trying to break down the choreography, you’ll be ready for “Zoey’s Extraordinary Best Friend.” At least, you’ll be as prepared as it was ever possible to be.
