Review: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 3 Episode 12 “Kimmy and the Trolley Problem!”

Yet another excellent episode for character development, ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ continues to brilliantly balance serialised character work with episodic situations, while giving a range of characters significance and necessity. This episode arguably was the most crucial for Jacqueline whose relationship with Russ has continually provided the character with a means of examining herself and her purpose. The development that occurs here feels natural, and impressively gives the character meaningful future intentions in being a better person and respecting herself. Furthermore, Kimmy also learns a similar lesson, understanding that while life has been different perspectives on morality and being a just person, ultimately it is up to us to do what we feel is right. There is no standard formula to be applied. This accumulates in an emotional ending, where Lillian also breaks out of her former self and potentially realises that life cannot stand still with the same traditional attitudes. These storylines are all complimented by brilliant, humorous writing and fantastically emotional, yet delightful performances. 9.5/10
