Shadow and Act has an exclusive clip from the penultimate episode of grown-ish season 4, and it shows Zoey (Yara Shahidi) in a pickle. Will she follow Aaron (Trevor Jackson)?
Here’s the logline for the episode, titled “Laugh Now Cry Later”:
Zoey and Aaron’s relationship is put to the test when she has to decide between a new job opportunity or following Aaron on his new career adventure. Nomi gets accepted to the law school of her dreams, but has to weigh the options of leaving the state or keeping her newfound family together. Ana is unsure about what to do before starting law school and leans on an old love for advice. Doug’s feelings for Jazz grow as Des comes back into her life.

Yara Shahidi, who portrays Zoey, commented on the season saying, “I think this season, we all have a ton of really determined characters and I feel like in many ways, as much as you’ve seen them grow up, a lot of them have continued down the path that they said they were going to pursue when we first met them freshman year in terms of having these future careers,”
The series has shown its characters navigating a new world with their whole lives ahead of them after they graduate and the struggle that comes with the uncertainty of moving forward.
Diggy Simmons who plays Doug said of his experience on the show: “I think I learned this in real life while I was on the show and it’s that you never truly figure it out,” he continued” It’s a continuous mission to know [and] see who you are, see what works for you, and see who works in your life and find out that there’s a season that will serve you differently than others. I think it’s just that we’ll always be getting better at this thing called life.”
The episode premieres Thursday night at 10 p.m. Freeform and it is available next day on Hulu.
