[Warning: Spoilers ahead for the first four episodes of Red Oaks: the pilot, "Doubles," "The Wedding" and "MDMA"]
In the first three shows of the new batch of Red Oaks episodes that began streaming on Friday, lead character David Myers (Craig Roberts) spent more time with Getty's mysterious daughter Skye (Alexandra Socha), bonding with her over art amidst her nude paintings and talking poolside about school and his accounting struggles (he's not very good at math, he reveals) and even fantasizing about the two of them making out. Meanwhile, some tension has developed between David and his girlfriend Karen (Gage Golightly) as she wants to model for country-club photographer Barry (Josh Meyers), who's been creepily pushing her to pose for him. And after her disastrous birthday celebration, Karen ditches David to check out Barry's art exhibit and he sends her a bouquet of roses that she looks at guiltily with David's more modest bouquet of flowers from his front yard sitting nearby.

In other Red Oaks couples news, Wheeler (Oliver Cooper) teaches Misty (Alexandra Turshen) to parallel park, gets high with her in the back of a limo (where she reveals that she wants to marry someone rich) and has a supportive chat with her about school and her wanting to be a dental hygienist. And David's parents, whom his dad has revealed aren't happy together, are talking about their relationship in therapy and, in the season's fourth episode, tried to "find the connectedness they misplaced along the way" with the help of "empathy drug," MDMA.
So what do the remaining six episodes have in store for Red Oaks' many pairs and what's the story behind that unusual body swap episode, which reviewers and those who've watched further into the season have highlighted? The Hollywood Reporter talked to the cast and co-creators Gregory Jacobs and Joe Gangemi about what to expect for the rest of the summer of 1985.
