Nine Perfect Strangers Episode 4 Review

Published

on

Nine Perfect Strangers is the most addicting series I’ve seen so far, It’s already become Hulu’s most watched original. Streaming in the UK on Amazon prime video, the first three episodes introduced the shows ensemble star studded cast of characters, all of whom are hiding secrets and trauma whilst staying at Tranquillum House. 

Episode three ended with a bombshell, revealing that Masha (Nicole Kidman) is drugging them. In Episode four titled “Brave New World”, shows the repercussions of Masha’s admittance. Surprisingly things don’t go as badly as viewers may expect.

The guests are understandably outraged that she didn’t ask for their consent first as she’s been micro-dosing them all with magic mushrooms. Even Tony’s (Bobby Cannavale) oxy has been switched out a while back with the mushrooms. Frances is not happy either and walks away, whilst Masha bluntly tells the others that they’re all keeping secrets. 

Such as Lars (Luke Evans) who as it turns out, is an investigative journalist but Masha is already very much aware of who he is. She eventually encourages him to continue on with his research and even says his stay at Tranquillum could even win him a Pulitzer prize. 



The guests overall take the news better then expected. No-one even leaves Tranquillum House as suggested by Masha, though several characters briefly consider doing so. 

Among them is Napoleon (Michael Shannon) who seems the most bothered by Masha’s deception.  Him being a school teacher has been against drugs his whole life. However his worry about consuming these narcotics turns into an intimate moment with his wife Heather (Asher Keddie). Both rekindle their romance and Napoleon finally confronts to his wife his feelings about their son’s death.

Another relationship this episode showcases is of Tony and Frances, this pair’s relationship has truly grown over the weeks. The episode helps us understand more about Tony and what happened to him in the past. His life has been completely destroyed and this episode gives us a devastating and shocking reveal. 

During Masha’s Mr. Kendo exercise, Frances reveals more about her experience getting catfished by Paul (Ben Falcone). It’s not just the lying and stealing that made her broken over his betrayal. It’s the fact that she’ll never get to be a mum. McCarthy’s performance was so emotional and heartbreaking, it truly showcases her range. 



It’s Carmel’s (Regina Hall) turn to meet up with Masha. Alone they discuss that she’s a bit of a livewire as they talk about her violent tendencies. The deep reason for Carmel’s hostility is that her husband left her for a younger woman. She is unfortunately forced to pick up the pieces in her life as she’s at her wits end. Carmel also really wants to punch Jessica in the face. 

Everyone was being drugged, except for Jessica (Samara Weaving) and Ben (Melvin Gregg). Jessica really wants to sample some of these healing drugs but ben is scared since his sister is an addict. 

Whilst the guests have calmer and friendlier interactions, drama among staff at Tranquillum increases rapidly. It sets up what seems to be an open relationship between Masha, Yao (Manny Jacinto and Delilah. The latter appears less on board with the whole thing.

The end of episode Four sees Masha telling her staff to move forward with the next step in her plan. Its unclear what her purpose is going to be going forward and there’s certainly someone who has it out for her. Nine Perfect Strangers is shaping up to be quite the intriguing show.
