Exclusive: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's Rebecca and Paula Are Working (and Belting) Out Their Friendship Angst

When two best friends are sorry for hurting each other but still feel hurt, who apologizes first? On tonight’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) and Paula (Donna Lynne Champlin) grapple with this very issue through the therapeutic art of song.


In ‘80s style power ballad “You Go First,” Rebecca and Paula—both in Joan Jett-meets-Tina Turner rock mullets—sing, “I really want to tell you that I’m sorry and I really want to tell you that I am the worst. And I just want to say I miss you every day, and I will. But you go first.”

Please enjoy this preview of tonight’s episode, exclusive to Jezebel, in all its billowing white curtains and rain-streaked glass glory. Considering that Rebecca and Paula’s friendship is the real romance at the center of the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend story, I really hope these two work it out.


Crazy Ex-Girlfriend airs Fridays, 9/8c, on The CW.

Last week’s episode was so well done. I loved Trent’s return, but hate seeing Paula and Becks fight.

A lot of people aren’t digging this season, which is a shame because I think it’s still super witty and fun.
