Mylene turns the church choir sinful
The Ed Bianchi-directed second episode is for the most part flatter and saner than the Luhrmann-helmed premiere, and your mileage will vary on which you prefer. (I say go full Luhrmann with this, or don't bother.) But then the scheme to get Cruz's music producer buddy Jackie Moreno turns a pure church service into something much wilder, pretending to be speaking in tongues as an excuse to move to the front of the stage, then blasting Jackie and the congregants with enough sexy disco flair to make her father's eyes nearly pop out of his skull. It's the exact showcase she, and the series, need to shake off an otherwise dull and uninspiring stretch.
