Everyone Is THIRSTING Over Kendrick Sampson On 'Insecure'

'Insecure' is finally back. The award-winning HBO comedy returned with its third season last night and it was everything that we wanted and more. Not only is it as funny and touching as ever but it also gives us a chance to find out what's happened to Issa since Season 2 ended. Last we saw of her, she was moving in with Daniel (her entire apartment block was evicted) and we've been dying to know what's happened since.

Season 2 opens with Issa still sleeping on Daniel's couch (the two ended their relationship last series and haven't rekindled it since) and working in a new job. She has taken on work as a Lyft driver to help make up for the fact that she now makes less at We Got Y'All. Most of the episode takes place in Issa's car, as she drives passengers from place to place but there is one passenger who is on everyone's minds: Nathan.
Nathan is played by Kendrick Sampson (the beloved actor who turned heads in 2015 in his recurring role as Caleb in How to Get Away with Murder Season 2). We first see Nathan after Issa is caught in a predicament. Daniel is entertaining a guest so she can't go back to his place. Instead, she decides to do a Lyft run and invites Molly to join her. Nathan appears soon after as a passenger.
All is going well, initially. Issa and Nathan even flirt. However, things take a turn when another guy joins the journey and lights a joint in the car. Issa asks him not to but he ignores her. Nathan then beats up the guy (incredible) but worried about being reprimanded for it, makes a run for it. Nevertheless, at the end of the episode we learn that he left Issa a $50 tip (amazing).
Unsurprisingly, fans are already obsessed with him and hoping that he will become a major part of the series.
Some viewers have already moved on past Daniel.
Nathan dropped Issa a $50 tip? Forget Daniel and get you a real king.— 𝔸𝕝𝕖𝕩𝕚𝕤 𝕋𝕖𝕣𝕖 (@alexistere) August 13, 2018
Go secure the bag, sis. #InsecureHBO pic.twitter.com/hq8Jrlm0QU
Secure that man.
Others are simply showering Nathan with praise.
My guy Nathan tossed homie's blunt and gave him the hands in the backseat of the car. Then left a $50 tip for Issa. He's the MVP of this episode. #InsecureHBO— ISSA GOT A 425 CREDIT SCORE (@_KingMalcolm) August 13, 2018
It's what he deserves.
There is plenty to stan tbh.
Nathan might be the best Lyft rider ever. After beating up a fool who smoked without permission in her car, he then gives Issa a GIANT tip. #InsecureHBO— Awesomely Luvvie (@Luvvie) August 13, 2018
We already ship Nathissa.
A couple of fans are confused.
Nathan let them reroute his plans, fought to stand up for them, didn't even get to his destination, & STILLL gave her a 50 dollar tip. #InsecureHBO pic.twitter.com/CnPCMkNZCa— dajahnae (@naturallydaj) August 13, 2018
Maybe he is a little bit too generous.
And one or two people don't trust him.
Whew Nathan and his southern drawl are quite fine but I don’t trust light skinned men with light eyes so #InsecureHBO— Sylvia Obell (@SylviaObell) August 13, 2018
Most are distracted by how he fine he is though.
Yo. Nathan is B A D. #InsecureHBO pic.twitter.com/bnNqAsQfPJ— LoveYourself (@ScottieBeam) August 13, 2018
We detect no lies.
Cast members are even tweeting to confirm just how fine he is.
jic y'all are wondering if Nathan is fiyoooone in real life... the answer is:— Natasha Rothwell (@natasharothwell) August 13, 2018
And a couple of fans are doing a public service by sourcing Kendrick's official Twitter account.
Ok y’all we’ve got the @ name for Nathan @kendrick38 😅 #InsecureHBO pic.twitter.com/XtNM5LpUxL— Mel Bae (@__melbae) August 13, 2018
Go forth and thirst.
Then there are those who are bitter that they don't have a Nathan.
My checking account needs a Nathan #InsecureHBO pic.twitter.com/YXp4sHSIFl— Kaze (@LoicKaze) August 13, 2018
The struggle is real.
And last but not least those who are asking the important questions.
Are we gonna see Nathan again? #InsecureHBO pic.twitter.com/LOZhR59hWs— 👩🏾⚖️Kay (@mightykatara) August 13, 2018
This needs to happen.
Thankfully, if Kendrick's Twitter account is anything to go by, it looks like this won't be the last we see of Nathan.
