Ever since Greg returned to Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, we knew we’d be in for some emotional musical throwbacks.
In Friday’s episode, “I’m Finding My Bliss,” Greg, now played by Skylar Astin, reprises Santino Fontana’s Season 1 ballad “What’ll It Be.” We are not okay!
In Season 1, “What’ll It Be” was the outlet for all Greg’s frustrations with his hometown and stifled ambition. But Season 4 Greg is different: He’s sober, he’s less angry, and even though he’s not with Rebecca, he’s still more emotionally available than ever. This Greg is owning his role in his previous unhappiness and no longer blaming West Covina for his troubles.
And he still plays a pretty mean piano.
The final season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend airs Fridays at 9 p.m. on The CW.
