There isn’t another show on television that can match the sheer joy of Pose . Last season’s finale was remarkable because it had a fairy-tale ending for characters that don’t usually get attention, let alone the spotlight, and a show with different intentions might have gone in the other direction for its second season’s last episode, which aired Tuesday night.
But nope: Pose once again twisted the historical aura of trauma around the ballroom community, used it to uplift its most beloved faces, and everyone went home happy. Even after two seasons, that still feels revolutionary.
From the moment this episode began with a heartbreaking look at Blanca, sick and alone in her apartment after letting her children fly off to their destined careers, there was a very real threat that mama Evangelista wasn’t going to make it out of the finale. That threat, which could at times feel like a Sword of Damocles on a show with so many HIV-positive characters, instead became a reason for Pray Tell and the Evangelista kids to prove Pose ’s thesis that family and legacy come from what people choose to do with their time, and not even death could stop someone as good as Blanca from changing people’s lives.
