The series Bridge and Tunnel has caught the interest of many teenage viewers for its storyline with great passion and charm that also asks great personal questions that relate to many fans in certain age groups. This fun drama follows the lives of some recently graduated college kids who plan to go to Manhattan with the hopes of pursuing their dreams. The show has a great aesthetic as it is set in the 1980s, the films and shows set in that time period are just pleasing to the eye for a reason.
But even though they insisted on leaving their previous life behind and making it big in Manhattan, they seemed unable to completely leave their hometown of LongIsland. Much familiarity looms large for them wherever they go.
We are first introduced to Jill and Jimmy who were once romantically involved but have now split because they realize they have very different goals in life. Jimmy wanted to leave his life behind and move on with his new job at National Geographic as a photographer. But Jill on the other hand doesn’t want to leave her hometown.
So now we are left with the question of what would this young couple to choose from, hold on to youthful love and play it safe or risk it all and catch the sunset? Before they made up their mind, they had one last little rendevous in the bathroom.
So there are six episodes in the first season, there are six college characters in the main character list. So that means we will focus on the six characters independently in each episode. Other characters are Pags, Mikey, Stacey, and Tammy. Each of them seems or wants to be romantically involved with one another.
We’ve got clues as to how Jill and Jimmy are questioning the future of their relationship, but they’re sure they want to be together. Mikey and Stacey on the other hand are a life-and-death couple who bump into each other but never seem to get together.
Mikey has a great interest in her and this interest seems to be increasing. But Stacey is now involved with other people and enjoying life with him in Manhattan. From the shadows, Tammy kept her love for Mikey but didn’t act because it would be a clear violation of the girl code she would have with Stacey since they were good friends, and Mikey was Stacey’s ex.
Finally, Pags seems to be the only one who has a bit of trouble dealing with women. she was now waiting for her law school life to begin and it looked like she was going to have a good time on Long Island herself.
Before we learn about the fifth episode and its release date, let’s have a quick recap of what happened in the fourth episode.

Episode 4 – Recap
A lot happened in Episode 4 entitled “Just Friends”. We saw Pag’s man on a date and we also saw clear violations of the girl code by Tammy. So in the fourth episode, we felt that something difficult would happen with the group of friends because there were many risky decisions that were taken. First, let’s face Tammy and Mikey’s situation. We saw that Mikey and Stacey broke up, perhaps this time for good, which made him a man looking for love.
But it looks like her love is the one person she shouldn’t see, Tammy. We saw the two together in the previous episode. They spend a nice romantic evening together but nothing escalates just because of how much Tammy respects Stacey.
She knows if she goes out and starts a relationship with Mikey it means Stacey will get hurt, it’s not something a girl’s best friend should do. But on the other hand, Stacey is currently living with another man in the city. Hence Tammy is currently fighting over 2 opinions on her mind while Mikey seems disappointed that this won’t work. But he understood the problem and didn’t force any decisions.
On the other hand, we have Pag set up for a blind date with Julianna who is Jill’s friend from town. Jill and Jimmy come back for more if you don’t realize it, the flames are full again. So to reduce any kind of awkwardness on the first date for Pag, they made it a double date.
On that date, things get hot when Jill and Jimmy show too many PDAs in front of the other two. The page suggests they do the same too as it will release any kind of awkwardness but object Julianna says not to take things too quickly.
