Despite all the shocks to Naomi’s (Kaci Walfall) psyche of late, there is one thing to look forward to: junior prom. She desperately wants it to be a normal night with Nathan (Daniel Puig), but as this preview for next week’s Naomi reveals, an impenetrable force-field threatens to incinerate the everyone in the school gymnasium. Definitely a situation worthy of the name “Worst Prom Ever.”
And, really, switching back to the high school setting is probably a good thing after Naomi played hooky this week to get lost in the Earth-29 of it all. On the one hand, it’s interesting to see a show dedicate so much time to a child getting legitimately angry at her parents (and for good reason), but a surplus of scenes in which just two people talked at other definitely slowed that great idea to a crawl — especially as just about every scene revolved around Naomi’s destiny. The weaving of the sci-fi ideas with the high school milieu early on in the season was something we really liked about the show, and hopefully next week will return to that mix.
Naomi airs Tuesdays on The CW.
