Atlanta’s ninth episode titled “North of The Border was based on a visit to a college campus where Al aka Paperboi was booked to perform. In keeping with the theme of the event, Al, Earn and Darius all wear silk pajamas throughout the episode that were clearly inspired by TLC’s “Creep” video.
The episode proves to be a very rough one for Earn and that could be why a very lighthearted scene featuring all three characters dancing to “Creep” ended on the cutting room floor.
This morning (April 30, 2018), Hiro Murai this morning was kind enough to resurrect the scene on his Instagram page.
Since this show loves its symbols, keep in mind that the blue pajamas were sported by group leaders Al and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins while the red pajamas were shared by crew philosophers/cut-ups Darius and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez. It’s not clear what commonality they share, but Earn and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas both wore magenta jammies.
