Season 1 / Episode 9 and airs on 06 July 2020 21:45
Set in London, where gratification is only an app away, I May Destroy You centres on Arabella whose raw and personal experience of consent sits at the heart of the story. Through Arabella we meet a group of fictional friends and colleagues whose sexual adventures frequently collide with a world in which new codes of sexual practice are emerging...
A tumultuous day finds Arabella reassessing a sexual encounter with Zain and, following a promising new lead in the investigation, opening up to Biagio about her assault. Later, after a meeting with Susy Henny, Arabella threatens to break the internet when she goes off script at a writing summit. Meanwhile, Kwame's prompted to report his own assault to the police.
Much to Terry's disapproval, Arabella attends a support group for rape and sexual assault survivors run by their high school acquaintance, Theo. In a flashback to 2004, teenage Arabella and Terry intervene when a resourceful, troubled young Theo attempts to flip the narrative on consensual sex gone sideways.
Strapped for cash and still unable to produce a draft of her book, Arabella takes a job working alongside Theo at a vegan delivery start-up. Birthday girl Terry takes covert measures to ensure Simon won't make a surprise appearance at her party. The festivities find Kwame avoiding reminders of his assault while Terry airs her suspicions about Theo.
Reeling from a demoralizing development in the investigation, Arabella hatches a risky plan to "spark joy" - and convinces an adverse Terry to bankroll it. Still navigating the fallout of his own assault, Kwame challenges himself to explore the full spectrum of his sexuality.
Arabella's bloated social media presence finds her more glued to her phone than ever, perpetually internalizing the stress of her followers. At a Halloween "paint and wine" organized by Terry, Kwame opens up to the girls about his recent sexual experiment - and Arabella's reaction lands her in an emergency session with Carrie.
After Simon inadvertently drops a bomb on Arabella, she heads to her mom's birthday dinner, where painful, long-forgotten memories bubble to the surface. Kwame's no-strings-attached hookup bender leads him to Tyrone, a stranger in search of a different kind of connection.
Arabella's obsession with a fellow young author, Della, leads to unexpected progress on her book, despite a devastating setback. Kwame wades into uncharted waters with Tyrone and attempts to make amends with a disgruntled ex-flame. Terry has some luck in work and romance - and joins Arabella in staking out the bar where she was spiked.
When Arabella's memory of January 22nd comes rushing back to her, she drags the last of her demons out from under the bed - once and for all.
