The mysterious circumstances surrounding Edgar’s death, which happened the morning after his wedding, have dominated this season. In this episode, Ulysses emerges as a key player in the investigation as Detective Danner (Tiffany Haddish) and Aniq (Sam Richardson) become embroiled in a web of suspicion.
The inquiry is changed by Ulysses’ admissions regarding his interactions with the Zhu family, notably Grace (Poppy Liu), and a new leading suspect is introduced. We’ll study the consequences that result from these revelations, examine the possibility that Ulysses could have killed Edgar, and break down the major incidents of this episode in this article.
The Afterparty’s Season 2 Episode 7 Recap
Aniq and Zoe get into a furious disagreement when Aniq suggests questioning Zoe’s relatives, with a particular focus on her uncle Ulysses (John Cho). In contrast to Zoe’s parents, Vivian and Feng, who decline to take part in the investigation, Ulysses voluntarily assists Aniq and Danner despite Zoe being horrified by the concept. We go through Ulysses’ past as he describes what happened the night of the wedding, revealing a turbulent history of relationships and betrayals.
The past of Ulysses is revealed in a sequence of flashbacks in “Ulysses’ Revelation.” He was a professional dancer who suffered from emotional damage after seeing the atrocities of war. After seeking safety with his half-brother Feng (Ken Jeong), Ulysses eventually gets involved in an affair with Vivian, Feng’s wife. This romance lasts until Vivian falls pregnant with Grace, at which point she breaks it off, leaving Ulysses inconsolable. Ulysses remains close to Zoe and Grace despite this, acting as their “fun” uncle.
Ulysses’ presence gets more closely tied to the family’s secrets as the story goes on. When he invites Ulysses to his wedding and makes a suggestion that Grace might be Ulysses’ daughter, Edgar enters the situation. After hearing this information, Ulysses becomes curious about the truth, which prompts him to try to get a DNA sample from Grace’s glass at the after-party in order to establish paternity.
In the end, Ulysses claims he had nothing to do with Edgar’s murder. His motivation is to find out who Grace’s real parents are. The notion that Grace might not be Feng’s daughter is suggested by the chronology of events, which leads Ulysses to act independently. He tinkers with Grace’s glass in an effort to run a paternity test. Ulysses worries about Feng’s response to learning the truth, though.
According to Ulysses, Edgar was aware of Vivian’s secret and had planned to tell everyone about it before the wedding. This information puts Feng on the spot, who might have been driven to intimidate Edgar in order to preserve Grace’s lineage. Due to Feng’s failure to assist the investigation and the growing body of evidence against him, Detective Danner’s suspicions also turn to him.
As the program comes to a close, Feng is highlighted as a possible suspect in Edgar’s slaying. The fact that Ulysses left raises doubts about his motivations, giving rise to the notion that he could be trying to frame Feng. The appearance of Kyler, the wedding videographer, adds a fresh line of proof that might reveal the truth about Edgar’s demise.
‘The Afterparty’ Season 2 Episode 7 basically sets up a complicated interplay of connections, secrets, and reasons. Grace’s parentage comes under the limelight as a result of Ulysses’ involvement in the investigation, and several theories concerning Edgar’s murder are made possible by his deeds. The puzzle pieces keep coming together as the season goes on, bringing Danner and Aniq one step closer to solving the mysterious enigma at hand.
