Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s two biggest schemers are back in action—whether they like it or not. Partners-in-crime Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) and Paula (Donna Lynne Champlin) have taken a break from their usual shenanigans in the show’s third season while Rebecca focuses on her mental health and Paula works toward her law degree. But all that changes on Friday night’s episode, when the return of one of Rebecca’s ex-boyfriends forces them to reunite and go back to their sneaking and spying ways.
The accompanying song, “Back in Action,” was co-written by Bloom, Adam Schlesinger, and Jack Dolgen, and comes with a video that evokes police procedurals of the 80s and 90s. “We’re like buddy cops, but we’re not cops,” sings Rebecca. “We’re buddies for whom the action never stops.” No matter how much Paula might want it to.
The episode, “Trent?!”, was directed by Stuart McDonald. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend airs Fridays at 8 p.m. on the CW.
