Last night’s episode of the comedy, Atlanta: Robbin’ Season, found Twitter loving every minute of the innovative show.

No matter how you thought Atlanta: Robbin’ Season would start, one thing was made clear: it would steal your attention quickly. Donald Glover and co. have been making the press rounds, sharing thoughts on what to expect and building up anticipation—and rightfully so. And as the Emmy award winning show made its return, Glover was right to say to those who doubted his success that this season would be the proof that “those Emmys [weren’t] just because of affirmative action.”

Titled “Alligator Man,” fans of the show who seen Season One, come to realize that the jig is up for Glover’s character Earn Marks. His stay at the storage center is up and he is once again looking for a couch or a place to stay. His cousin, Paper Boi (played by Brian Tyree Henry), has come into some money since his single cracked into the public’s consciousness, which has made Earn into a bit of a lackey of sorts. Needing to keep his cousin happy in order to possibly securing a spot, Earn accepts a quest of epically hood proportions.

Earn travels to resolve a dispute between his Uncle Willy (played with serious aplomb by comedian Katt Williams) and his partner, Yvonne. Apparently, she stole $50 and he has “kidnapped” her by locking her in their bedroom. With the “boys” out front, urging Willy to come out, Earn and Darius not wanting to be arrested and Yvonne yelling at the top of her lungs, this scenario looks bad. Without giving too much of the episode away (you should really watch it if you haven’t already) — Atlanta: Robbin’ Season made a triumphant return to FX’s screens as those who tuned in were celebratory about the episode, revelatory about Katt Williams’ performance and all-around engaged with the several narratives presented throughout the episode.
