The Big Mouth season 3 finale “Super Mouth” saw a freak storm give the kids superpowers. Here’s a rundown of the episode’s major events.
The Big Mouth season 3 finale signaled some major changes were coming for the show’s characters, and here’s a rundown of the episode’s plot. Netflix’s adult-oriented animation Big Mouth follows a group of seventh grade kids – including Nick (Nick Kroll), Andrew (John Mulaney), Jessi (Jessi Klein), Jay (Jason Mantzoukas) and Missy (Jenny Slate/Ayo Edebiri) – as they navigate the trials and tribulations of puberty with the help – and sometimes hindrance – of shoulder angels known as hormone monsters. The series was co-created by Kroll and his real-life BFF Andrew Goldberg and inspired by their own experiences coming of age in the suburbs of New York’s Westchester County where the series is set.
Big Mouth has gotten rave reviews for its bawdy but heartfelt exploration of the issues many adolescent kids face – from friendships and mental health to sex and sexuality – and its third season was no different. While Jay came to terms with his bisexuality and Jessi dealt with depression, their middle school production of a musical version of the 1994 erotic thriller Disclosure gave them a lesson in sexism and sexual harassment and created a love triangle between Nick, his best pal Andrew and their classmate Missy.
