Oh my God. - Welcome to the party. - Hey guys, excited to be here. - Sophia, tell us about this show. - So in this episode that you're about to watch it's a bunch of girls who don't know each other getting on a plane, and then we crash land on an island. - Sophia, could you tell us where this show was filmed so we can go there? - We filmed this show in New Zealand. We filmed part of it in Piha Beach and it was so beautiful, my first time in New Zealand. I would live there forever. - Okay, girl, please tell us about your most favorite moment filming. - As a cast, we got really close, just like having these like really smart, empowered women around you all of the time. But there was this small island called Waiheke right off of like the shore of Auckland and it was a wine island and there was just all of these wineries all over the place. And we would take a ferry, it was just like a 40 minute ferry from Auckland and just spend the day there and get wine drunk together. - So we're gonna check in with you at the end of the episode, but we gotta go. We gotta go get this party started. - All right, bye, enjoy. We'll check in with you after you watched the episode. - These girls must be stuck on a deserted island, but we are not. - So we'll be sharing our reactions on screen, but you can share your reactions in the comments below. - So let's finally watch the episode. - Early this morning, we made contact with your parents. We'll travel them here as quickly as possible. And the quarantine order will be lifted soon, not just for you, but for all the victims, at which point, you'll be free to see each other. Just to be clear, our primary goal is to conduct an investigation. There's a lot of haze surrounding your circumstances that we just want to clarify. And I cannot stress this enough, but this is just a conversation. That's all. - She looks like she's been through some stuff. - This is my colleague, Agent Young. He's gonna be running point on this. He's the investigator in charge, brass tax guy, if you will, but me, I'm here for you, Leah, to make sure you feel safe. As a trauma specialist that is my sole and sacred duty. You thirsty? Would you like something to drink? Let's see, I didn't know what you liked so we got a grab bag here. Is anything calling your name? (dark music) - Oh, oh, oh. - I used to drink these all the time. - What was that? Who was that? - Good, great, that's great. Don't hesitate to ask for seconds, thirds or anything at all really. After all you've been through, we want you to feel as comfortable as possible. - What have the others told you? - Nothing as of yet. You're the first that's when we brought in. - So then you don't know what I've been through, do you? You're just assuming trauma. You're just assuming it was a living hell. - Okay Leah, no one is assuming anything. - Sorry, look, I don't, I don't mean to say that what happened wasn't traumatic. Obviously it was traumatic to end up where we did in the middle of nowhere, completely cut off from the lives we left behind. That brings us to the real question, doesn't it? What was so (bleep) great about the lives we left behind? Because here's what I remember of all that. I remember not being enough. I remember wanting to be more. I remember the dark moods, the violent moods, moods that nobody had any patience for. And then there was the brutal social scene, which some girls could just glide through like they belonged everywhere. And there you were just trying to belong somewhere. I remember the ridiculous expectations they had for us, like we were supposed to be these golden gods 24/7. (upbeat music) ♪ You have declared your consent ♪ ♪ May the Lord fill you both with blessings ♪ - Locked, locked, fuck. - [Leah] I remember the responsibilities. Heavy burdens meant for adults forced on us before our time. Responsibilities that made you think, yeah, this is definitely (bleep) with my healthy development right now. - Poor baby. - Oy. - [Leah] And don't get me started on the impossible problem of sex. If you were terrified of it, which you had every reason to be, you'd be deemed a frigid chastity bitch. But if you were somehow unafraid, like if it was just naturally your thing, - Ooh, there's our girl, Joyce. - Yeah, that's our boo. - Then God help you, the world is a dangerous place for a sexually evolved girl. And on top of all that, there was this new feeling, this sick, ugly feeling of wanting to love and to be loved back, which never ends well. (crying) (upbeat music) So if we're talking about what happened out there, then yeah, there was trauma, but being a teenage girl in normal ass America, that was the real living hell. - Okay, that's a fire scene. To be a teenage girl in normal ass America, that was a real living hell. Period, put that in a book and send it. - Hello? - A statement. - Anybody? (crying) ("Raise Your Glass" by Pink in distance) ♪ Wrong in all the right ways ♪ ♪ All my underdogs ♪ ♪ We will never be, never be, anything but loud ♪ ♪ In all the right ways ♪ ♪ All my underdogs ♪ ♪ We will never be, never be ♪ ♪ Wrong in all the right ways ♪ ♪ All my under ♪ (ominous music) - Tell us what you know about the Dawn of Eve. - [Leah] The retreat was my mother's idea. She thought it would be like therapeutic. - Did you have a chance to look through the activities? You know, they- - But maybe they were just scared of me. My dad had started looking at me like I was radioactive. - Private plane, honey, direct to the big island. If that doesn't boost you out of your funk, I don't know what will. - Please don't refer to my emotional devastation as a funk. - Leah, I know you're recovering from some kind of breakup and I know you're not wild about this trip, but your father and I, we're kind of a loss for how we can help. - [Father] We're really trying to here, Leah. (mysterious music) - Hey, hey. Are you all right? Hey, what are you saying? (Jeanette mumbling) - Pink, is that your ringtone? - Pink. - Hey, hey, hey, stay with me. - Jeanette, that was her name I found out later. And she was the only one who'd come alone. The rest of us came in pairs. There was Toni and Martha, best friends from Minnesota, the Texans, Dot and Shelby. There was Rachel from New York and her sister Nora, and Fatin, of all people, from my school. But like I said, none of this sunk in until later, not faces, not names, not the ridiculous welcome video. - Right now, hundreds of girls just like yourselves are aboard charters just like this one are on route to our retreat in Kona, Hawaii for a long weekend of female-centric learning and growth. The Dawn of Eve literally waits for no man. - [Leah] I was somewhere else trying to disappear into those pages where it all began. - Do you know there is a vegan drum circle on the south lawn? I mean seriously? Be a vegan or be someone who does drum circles, not both. Everyone is just too (bleep) interesting around here. I've got like interesting fatigue. - Is that what you hang out with me? I'm so bland, it gives you a chance to recharge? I get it. My hair is all one color. I'm a virgin that still drinks dairy milk. Shit, I really am boring. Actually by being the most norm core person here you've low key turned the tables. You've become the freakiest freak of all. Well, either you or Fatin, the truly basic bitch. - [Leah] Why does she even go here? - You seriously don't know? Fatin is a cello virtuoso. She's like a shoo-in at Julliard. You don't have to read that book, you know? Mrs. Wolf only assigned it 'cause Galanis used to go here. It's shameless alumni promotion. God, have you read chapter six yet? A 12 page description of the wallpaper in a waiting room. - Yeah, but I, I think the waiting room was like a metaphor though for how stuck she felt. - You can tell him yourself, he's coming next week, some kind of school-wide literary event (dark music) - So in the interest of bringing us all together, I'd like to propose a little icebreaker. - Oh, like never have I ever? - That game's a little much. - I know. So here's how it works. One person says something they've never done and if you have done it, you have to drink alcohol. - That game's a little intense, like for people who don't know each other real well. So how about we just pair off, pow wow with your partner for a sec, and then afterwards you can introduce her to the rest of us. - This white girl said pow wow. - So? - So it's not her word. You should be triggered. - Okay, I'm not though. - Why am I always fighting your battles for you? - I don't know because you like fighting. - Okay, guess I'll have to play matchmaker. You can come with me. (groans) Right about here.
