Solos episode four has just aired on Prime Video and the latest instalment followed isolated woman, Sasha (played by Uzo Aduba). In the episode, fans learned of Sasha’s agoraphobia as she is forced to stay in confinement. Express.co.uk has all you need to know about what happened in the latest episode.
Sasha is first seen in her safe home, with her Bot, Zen, for company.
The episode is set following a deadly pandemic that took place 20 years ago, which provided an opportunity for a company called Stay Home.
They designed special isolation homes and Sasha was one of the people who took the company up on their offer.
Zen tried to encourage Sasha to leave the house, but she is determined to stay put in her safe space.
The Bot tries all sorts of tactics to coax Sasha out, including financial incentives and emotional manipulation.
Sasha is then thrown back into the past when she starts seeing images of her old friend, Nia.
She is left feeling traumatised after the pandemic and turns into a paranoid recluse.
In the final moments of the episode, the bot reveals that Nia actually came out of her confinement a long time ago.
This meant Sasha was the only one still locked inside her house.
The bot once again explains how the Stay Companion department has shut down following the end of the pandemic.
Sasha made a final request to be shown an image of her friend once more, but it is too late and the bot says goodbye.
She is so overwhelmed with anxiety, she remains fearful of leaving her home.
Sasha was under the impression that Nia had been in contact with her, but all the messages from her friend were sent years ago.
She was also misled into thinking the pandemic was still at large, when in fact the rest of the world had moved on.
From the episode, it seems she suffers from agoraphobia, which is the fear of going outside.
The episode was very close to home for many viewers amid the coronavirus pandemic, which kept people in their homes for weeks.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the episode, with one saying: “Relating to Sasha from the beginning.. and then… I am scared now.”
Another said: “Ok so Amazon Prime’s Solos, it’s Black Mirror but it’s just monologues, loved some of it, the Sasha episode was truly devastating, but the Nera episode I just don’t get.”
A third added: “Sasha, Episode 4 of Solos on @PrimeVideo is such a beautiful story.”
The actress has received critical acclaim for her previous role in Orange is the New Black.
She has since gained a huge following and fans were thrilled to see her join the star-studded cast.
Another said: “Sasha’s story in Solos hit too close to home man!
“I really don’t want to get to where she was, because reintegration back into society is so important to me, but I know that feeling of safety and comfort in your own home and that fear of stepping outside, all too well.”
The sci-fi series gives a dystopian outlook on life and hones in on a new character with each episode.
The series tells stories of these individuals at their most vulnerable.
