Season 3, Episode 4: "San Junipero"
"San Junipero" is refreshingly uplifting for a Black Mirror episode, featuring a tender, queer romance at the heart of its story. In it, a shy young woman named Yorkie falls in love with the much-more-extroverted Kelly in the carefree beach town of San Junipero. But their lives before this paradise isn't quite as heavenly, the past eventually taking its toll on the couple.
This season three episode deftly explores love, grief, and the afterlife while weaving in implications about virtual reality. Its story will satisfy drama and sci-fi lovers alike with an inventive premise that's gorgeously conveyed by lead actresses Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Mackenzie Davis.
