Recap of Episode 4 of ‘The Idol’: Jealousy Takes Center Stage – The Gentleman Report


It’s almost unbelievable how Tedros can manipulate the people around him in the show “The Idol”. He manages to seduce everyone, no matter how suspicious they are of him or how violently he behaves towards them. This is the most perplexing aspect of the series. In an interview with GQ, Tesfaye described Tedros as a “douchebag,” a fact that is painfully obvious to viewers. Yet, this “douchebag” has an inexplicable allure that allows him to assault people in plain sight, while everyone simply brushes it off as his unconventional methods. The only character who seems immune to his charm is Jocelyn’s best friend and assistant, Leia, who becomes the voice of reason but is later drenched with a water gun filled with tequila.

One example of this is Jocelyn’s manager, Destiny. After discovering information about Tedros’s life and even suggesting that he may need to be physically eliminated, she decides to go undercover at his compound to gather more intel. Initially, she reports back to her partner Chaim about the strange and unsettling things she witnesses, such as Tedros blindfolding Jocelyn in front of an audience to record her vocals. Despite her reservations, Destiny eventually starts to recognize Tedros’s talent. After spending a week there, she acknowledges the hits he has created with Jocelyn, no matter how brutal his methods are. Although she still wants to handle the situation, for now, she is willing to let it play out.

However, that is nothing compared to the dramatic turnaround of Xander throughout this episode. In a poorly constructed plot thread, Tedros overhears Xander singing in the shower and confronts him. What starts as an interrogation about Xander’s decision to no longer pursue a singing career quickly escalates into a torture session, in which Jocelyn participates with disturbing enthusiasm.

The dynamics of Jocelyn and Xander’s relationship are complicated. They were both child performers, and Xander lived with Jocelyn and her mother, silently witnessing the abuse they endured. Additionally, Jocelyn’s mother exposed Xander’s secret and potentially coerced him into signing a contract that prohibited him from singing. There is an underlying resentment that could be explored further in a more nuanced show, but instead, the situation culminates in Xander being tied up and subjected to relentless electric shocks from a collar around his neck.

Despite all of this, by the end of the episode, Xander appears to be carrying out Tedros’s bidding, devising a plan to publicly humiliate Jocelyn’s ex-boyfriend, Rob, who is also a famous actor. Jocelyn had invited Rob over for sex as an act of revenge.

It is difficult to comprehend how Tedros manages to manipulate everyone around him in “The Idol.” Regardless of how suspicious they are or how violently he behaves towards them, he manages to seduce them all. This is the most perplexing aspect of the show. In an interview with GQ, Tesfaye called Tedros a “douchebag,” which is obvious to viewers. Yet, this “douchebag” has an alluring quality that enables him to assault people in plain sight while everyone ignores it as his unconventional methods. Only Leia, Jocelyn’s assistant and best friend, seems to be immune to his charm, but even she falls under his spell in the end.

Destiny, Jocelyn’s manager, is an example of this. After uncovering information about Tedros’s life and suggesting that he may need to be physically eliminated, she decides to go undercover at his compound to gather more intel. Initially, she reports strange and unsettling things to her partner Chaim, such as Tedros blindfolding Jocelyn in front of an audience to record her vocals. Despite her doubts, Destiny eventually recognizes Tedros’s talent. After spending a week there, she acknowledges the hits he has created with Jocelyn, no matter how brutal his methods are. Although she still wants to handle the situation, for now, she is willing to let it play out.

However, Xander’s dramatic turnaround is even more shocking. Tedros overhears Xander singing in the shower and confronts him. What starts as an interrogation about Xander’s decision to no longer pursue a singing career quickly escalates into a torture session, in which Jocelyn participates with disturbing enthusiasm.
