If you are curious in getting all sorts of Good Trouble spoilers leading up to the January 8 premiere, you are in the right place! This article is all about sharing some of the first details from the first four episodes of the season, and there is a lot of content in here about the story, the characters, and some of the themes that are going to be explored.
By and large, we do think that this show is going to be about identity, and about how Callie and Mariana figure out who they are and what they want out of their lives. They’ll be entering Los Angeles with huge dreams of making it big and trying to change the world. Unfortunately, along the way they will learn that achieving these things is certainly easier said than done. They’ll encounter ideological differences, but then also sexism, workplace conflicts, and also past and present relationships. They’re going to get so much more than what they bargained for in the City of Angels!
With all of this spelled out, take a look at some more details below.
Episode 1, “DTLA” (January 8) – “We pick up where “The Fosters” ended, 5 years in the future, with sisters Callie & Mariana graduating college and moving to downtown Los Angeles. Living with a group of friends in a community style living space, Callie and Mariana navigate the beginning of their careers—Callie clerking for a conservative judge and Mariana in the male-dominated tech space. The sisters and best friends will navigate love, sex, and the complicated relationships that come with living in a new city in your 20s.”
Episode 2, “The Coterie” (January 15) – “The residents of the Coterie throw an epic party, which Jude attends. Callie puts aside work for one evening to finally let loose and enjoy herself, but will it put her job as a law clerk in jeopardy? Meanwhile, Mariana tries to make friends with her new co-workers since she still feels like an outsider. Alice gets some upsetting news about her ex-girlfriend, Sumi, while Malika is confronted by her foster care past.”
Episode 3, “Allies” (January 22) – “Callie’s love life heats up, especially after she reaches out to an old friend for some legal advice. Mariana’s attempt to get ahead at work has surprising consequences. Gael’s sister, Jazmin, reaches out to him for help.”
Episode 4, “Playing the Game” (January 29) – “Judge Wilson invites Callie and the other clerks over for a seemingly friendly BBQ that takes an unexpected turn. Mariana deals with a lack of diversity in her workplace and questions whether it’s the right place for her. Alice struggles with the responsibilities of managing the Coterie.”
These four episodes set the foundation for the remainder of the season; the writers need to nail these, given that this is what will keep viewers hooked as we move forward into the rest of the first season.
