Welcome to Queer Fudanshi. Let’s Talk. In this post we’re going to talk about Entangled with You Episodes 11-13.
Entangled with You is an American Dramedy Web Series. The official premise found on the Entangled with You web site goes:
After suffering breakups, a stoic lesbian moves in with a perky straight woman. With nothing in common beyond mutual heartache, the two form an unlikely bond as conflicts with their significant others force them closer.
Created by Caryn K. Hayes, Entangled is a relationship dramedy following roommates Alisha (Kathryn J. Taylor) and Jaliyah (Loren Lillian), who move in together after separating from their partners. Emotional and perky, Alisha takes a reluctant Jaliyah on her up-and-down grief tour, while the stoic and cool Jaliyah deals with her own loss.
Only… Alisha’s on-and-off-again boyfriend, Craig (Al Thompson) and Rocky (Jessica Meza), Jaliyah’s girlfriend, never leave the picture. Failing to fully disconnect from their relationships leaves the roomies in a constant back and forth with their emotions and the pair form an unlikely bond as their lives begin to intersect in unexpected ways.

My Thoughts Before Watching
I am back with Entangled With You. In the last three episodes there was a pretty big change that happened between the two main characters. (Spoilers warning, in case you haven’t watched episodes 8-10 yet). The two Alisha and Jaliyah have started down the path of a relationship.
All I really want is for the show to make me like the two as a couple. I liked them as best friends, and I hope I’ll like them just as much as girlfriends. Hopefully, these next three episodes can convince me to do so. We’ll see.
This is Entangled with You Episodes 11-13.
Where to Watch:
The Talk (Spoilers Ahead):
Episode 11: “You Again”
This episode is exceptionally longer than the earlier ones, and it’s full of hurt emotions and feelings of wanting to get back together with exs. With some of it, I’m totally supportive. With others, I want it to go away.
Honestly, this show is an emotional roller coaster (in a good way), especially with Jaliyah and Rocky. When Jaliyah was at the club texting Rocky I wanted to be her friend and take her phone away. From the start that relationship wasn’t good and I didn’t wanna see that go back. But, then I thought back on that idea. I don’t think I could be friends with Jaliyah. She’s too emotional and all over the place. Part of me thinks Rocky was lucky to break up with her. That said, Jaliyah’s an entertaining character to watch.
Then I had a thought, is this the show’s writing making me wanna root for Alisha and Jaliyah by setting up the worse couples of Jaliyah and Rocky and Alish and Craig? Well played Entangled With You. Ultimately, I don’t even know what I want anymore. Do I want Alisha and Jaliyah to get together? Do I want them to stay friends? I don’t know, so I’ll just sit here and see where the show takes me.
Episode 12: “None of Your Business”
You know who my favorite character is? Jen. She’s fun, funny, and personable. And you know who my favorite couple is? It’s Jen and Kassie. Jaliyah and Rocky were toxic, Alisha and Craig were hilarious but complicated, and Darrel and Candice were almost not noteworthy to me. It’s Jen and Kassie who are dramatic without being chaotic, funny, and fun to watch.
Speaking of Jaliyah and Rocky… that ending though… Why? Why? Why Entangled with You? Why are you messing with me like this? I do have to say, congrats to the show because it really has made me invested in its characters and situations. That can be seen in the fact that I am so annoyed to see Jalyah and Rocky back together. When will it end?!
Episode 13: “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”
Best thing about this episode was Jen and Kassie (of course)… and Alisha’s mom. The way she smacked Candice and Craig down was downright beautiful. I’d watch another 10 episodes with that character alone.
Also, there was a great cameo in this episode. Laura Zak, who acted in Her Story, popped into this episode. That was a fun surprise. And while I’m talking about surprises, seeing Rocky’s girlfriend at the party was hilarious. “This community’s too small.” Poor Jaliyah, but I look forward to seeing what happens in the next episode.
In the last episode I was trying to get on board the Alisha/Jaliyah train, but Entangled With You Episodes 11-13 apparently I didn’t need to. Honestly, at this point I’m not gonna try to ask much of the show and I’ll just let it take me wherever it wills. (Of course, I’ll only go if Jen and Kassie are going).
My rating for Entangled With You Episodes 11-13 is 4 stars out of 5. What’s Yours?
