Jordan’s Death Is Beef’s Most Brutal Scene

Albeit not the only casualty to occur in Beef, Jordan’s death is, by far, the grisliest.

With the Emmy-nominated limited series BEEF, Steven Yeun (as Danny) and Ali Wong (as Amy) road-raged their way into nods in the leading acting categories. Young Mazino, Joseph Lee and Maria Bello also received recognition for their performances in the series about a grudge that spirals way out of control. People died! Buildings burned! Crows talked! But by the end of the series, the feud brought Danny and Amy closer to each other than anyone else in their lives. “There’s just something very freeing about these two characters who have seen each other at their very, very worst,” showrunner Lee Sung Jin said in March.

The season ends with Danny and Amy utterly alone, in the hospital, after being strung out on poisonous berries in the deserted Malibu hillside. But, for a brief moment, there’s connection and understanding as Amy hugs Danny and he embraces her back to the yearning tones of Smashing Pumpkins’ “Mayonaise.” “There’s a really good Ram Dass quote that says, ‘We’re all just walking each other home.’ And I think that feeling is probably something that we’re trying to capture,” Lee says in the video above.

Allow Lee, Yeun and Wong to take you inside the BEEF finale — and to really understand where Danny and Amy ended up, we have to reexamine who they were in the beginning, knowing what we know now.

What were Danny and Amy doing before they met? What were their routines?

Lee says that successful plant entrepreneur Amy wants to be more open with her husband George (Joseph Lee) and her family, but she’s learned from an early age to keep things inside. “This show provides an opportunity for me to talk about and express all the things I haven’t been able to say on stage in my stand-up,” Wong says. “It’s been the best way for me to say how it feels to be angrily, seemingly together.” Similarly, Yeun sees struggling contractor Danny as someone engulfed in deep fear. “He’s coming from a place of insecurity,” he says. “It’s easy for him to understand his reality, as long as everything’s in the place it needs to be.” And that especially includes his younger brother Paul (Young Mazino). “Danny keeps Paul where Paul’s supposed to be,” says Yeun.

OK, so was there sexual tension when Amy and Danny first met?

Even Yeun asks “what is it? Is it sexual?” Wong suggests that while BEEF is categorically a “dramedy/thriller,” she thinks it also “works as a romantic comedy.”

Why doesn’t Danny send in Paul’s college applications?

Danny doesn’t want to keep Paul down, Yeun says. But “that’s just what he knows now.” Danny’s short but powerful line to Paul that “you need to get away from me” in Episode 9 came from Yeun’s instinct on set. “The way that scene was scripted, there were just too many words,” Lee says, commending how Yeun knew the gist of what his character needed to say in that moment.
