Warning: This post contains spoilers for Swarm Episode 1.
Even if you're not really into TV shows, you've probably heard about the new Prime Video series Swarm.
Created by Donald Glover and Janine Nabers, it's a psychological thriller that follows a woman named Dre as she develops a dark obsession with a Beyoncé-level R&B singer named Ni'Jah. Starring Dominique Fishback, Chloe Bailey, and Damson Idris, it debuted yesterday to solid reviews.
But there's one thing that has people really talking: THAT BEDROOM SCENE WITH DAMSON AND CHLOE.
I obviously can't post it here, but basically, the scene shows their characters, Marissa and Khalid, passionately talking to each other while doing it. Khalid then sees Dre appear in the hallway, but rather than stopping, he just smiles and continues until Dre eventually walks away.
That part was weird, but everything else had people freaking out.
Some had plenty of jokes, as usual:
Others were just salty:
Chloe talked about the experience of filming the scene in a Deadline interview published earlier this month. She shared that at first she was "scared" to shoot it, as it was her first love scene, but she credited Damson for making her feel more "comfortable."
"I was very scared because I haven’t had that many partners, I’m not like that… that sexual and open," she explained. "Damson made it really comfortable. You know, there were limited people on set; it was a closed set. We were laughing in between. We literally had a bouncy ball in between us. […] I have to give a lot of kudos to him as a man for making me as a woman feel comfortable being literally raw and naked.”
Swarm's available to stream now on Prime Video if you wanna check it out!
