Good Trouble Wiki
Good Trouble Wiki

I live in an intentional community which for the uninitiated translates to millennial clown car. I'm the manager, so I drive the car. It's a jalopy that runs on sexual tension and bad decisions which we have plenty of.

Alice Kwan is a major character in the Freeform series, Good Trouble. She is portrayed by Sherry Cola.

Alice is the manager of The Coterie apartment complex. She is a lesbian first-generation Asian-American woman who is trying to find her voice comedically and personally.


Alice was born in America to Trea Kwan and Alan Kwan. They are both immigrants, making Alice and her brother the first-generation American in their family. Alice's parents are strict and traditional and often set Alice up on dates with their friends' sons. As a result, Alice made a point to not come out as a lesbian to her parents.

At some point, Alice took over The Coterie and became a manager at the apartment building. She then met Malika Williams and let her stay at The Coterie for a few months for free, on the condition that Malika would get a stable job. They later became best friends and consider each other their family.

Alice once dated Sumi, and the two were in love. However, their relationship fell apart when Sumi cheated on Alice and then left her to be with Meera Mattei. Despite their breakup, the pair remained friends despite Alice's lingering feelings for Sumi.


Alice is humble, down-to-earth, and extremely selfless. She puts everyone else's needs above her own and trusts people too much. She doesn't handle confrontation well, and instead, brushes off instances where she should stand up for herself. Alice views herself in a negative light and thinks she is a disappointment to her parents, which was why she refused to come out as a lesbian to her family.

It wasn't until Joey pointed it out that Alice realized the reason she refused to come out and her peculiar behavior was because she couldn't fully accept herself. After coming out to her parents, Alice realized they already knew and are fully supportive. This gives her the confidence to move on from her ex-girlfriend, Sumi.

Despite her positive qualities and self-proclaimed feminist attitude, Alice has no qualms putting down other women or mocking them behind their backs. This is evident in the way she treats Callie in a group chat with her friends of The Coterie; mocking and making fun of Callie while being pleasant to her face.

Physical Appearance

Alice is a pretty young woman in her mid-twenties who wears minimal to no makeup.

In Capoeira, Mariana wakes Alice to ask her to grab some clothes from her closet, as she doesn't want to see Isabella until she can talk with Raj. Alice sneaks into Mariana’s loft to find specific clothing for Mariana, but knocks down a shoebox. Isabella seemingly sleeps through it, so as Alice goes to leave only to find Isabella standing behind her. Alice lies that she’s borrowing clothes from Mariana but Isabella cries as she would never do anything to hurt Mariana. Alice tells Mariana that Isabella’s confession at Trap Heals might not be about Raj. Isabella had confessed to Alice that she slept with a past roommates boyfriend but insists she wouldn’t do it again. Alice reminds Mariana to ask herself if Raj would cheat on her.

Callie passes the bar and the Coterie residents come out of their hiding spots to celebrate, Alice among them. Callie reveals that Kathleen asked her to quit Legal Aid and work for her, which Callie has accepted. The group toasts until Alice asks if Davia is okay and where Dennis is. Davia lies that she's fine and that Dennis is just out of town. Alice proposes having a family dinner which makes everyone realize that Malika isn’t there.

In Arraignment Day, Lindsay and Alice face-off in the Coterie bathroom when Kelly emerges fully-clothed from the shower. Alice calls dibs on the use of the material, which Lindsay objects to. They go back and forth with their comedic interpretations of the event until Sumi enters with a funnier joke. Alice asks Sumi for her opinion on who owns the joke, but Sumi refuses to get involved. She won’t come between her friend and her significant other.

At the Coterie, Alice is annoyed by her uneasiness for the comedy audition and invites a fellow resident who claims she's busy. Kelly brings Alice flowers from Malika. Alice told Lindsay that she won’t let her life or jokes be appropriated by Lindsay or Sumi, finally telling them that she’s had enough and will do her version of the Coterie jokes. She storms off though Malika follows to express her pride for Alice taking her pride back. Malika gives her a pep talk and makes her pinky promise to do her best. Kelly can’t believe that Malika used her one phone call to send Alice flowers. Alice, who had her phone off, is informed by Kelly that BLM is holding a sit-in to protest.

Alice and Kelly arrive at the sit-in along with Davia. Kelly tells Alice to do her act here instead and rallies the group to listen, and they decide to listen. Gael and Kelly help Alice onto a ledge where she is recorded by Dyonte and Gael. She gives her performance which everyone seems to love.

In the kitchen, the Coterie group is saddened over their loss when they are joined by the BLM leaders. Malika enters a few moments later as everyone claps for her return. She thanks them for their help, and the video that Gael and Dyonte made was enough for DA Hanson to drop the charges. Malika is appreciative of Alice missing her audition. Alice takes a call from Ruby who tells her that Sumi sent her a link to the live stream performance, and the judges unanimously agreed to accept Alice into the CBTV Comedy Diversity Workshop. Everyone is happy for her, though Lindsay and Sumi enter with Alice thanking Sumi for her help. Lindsay was also accepted into the program. Malika, the Coterie group, and BLM celebrate their win.

In Whoosh, Pow, Bang, Alice’s comedy group opens with the members introducing themselves; Derek, Magda, Sanjana, Stacey, Shaun, and Lindsay, all of whom are deeply successful in their respective fields. Alice is the exception to the six-person program, in which everyone realizes she isn’t as successful as the others. The program director, Scott, makes it clear he is responsible for making or breaking their careers, as the program has made many careers. He rambles about diversity but goes on to stereotype everyone based on their race or identities. His rambles make Alice visibly uncomfortable.

Alice and CBTV group meet though she doesn’t understand everything they are doing. The director reveals that only five of them will go to the showcase, with two of them going home. He tells them to bring in a character for the writers that will help inspire them to write for the actors. Once the class is dismissed everyone talks about how bad Scott is, with the group confronting Lindsay on Alice’s deal. Lindsay claims she gave Alice her first big break but she’s a total newbie, with everyone agreeing and betting that she will go home first. Alice listens from behind the curtain. When she returns to the Coterie, she sings happy birthday to Mariana alongside Davia and Gael.

Afterward, Alice brushes her teeth when Lindsay comes in prompting Alice to admit she is doubting her comedic skills after overhearing the CBTV group. Lindsay suggests not giving up just because she had a bad day. They didn’t want Alice to quit, they just didn’t want to compete with her to get into the program. Lindsay leaves so Alice tries to figure out a character for the program. She answers a facetime call from her mom.

The CBTCV group watches the skits that unfold, with Scott choosing Lindsay and Alice for the next skit. Lindsay opts for a country person while Alice draws inspiration from her mother, remembering a conversation with Trea the previous night. Trea is selling makeup to get a divorce since her husband chews loud, leaves glasses of water everywhere, and more. Alice does amazing with her skit, outshining even Lindsay. In the stands, Derek remarks that Alice stole the scene from Lindsay so everyone is on the chopping block now. Lindsay goes to leave when Alice stops them, praising their country's fly-fishing skit. Lindsay notes that the writers don’t think so, calling Alice lucky to have her ethnicity to fall back on.

In Help, Scott hands out papers to the comedy group as the writers have written characters for everyone, with Alice being in three of them. Alice plays a stereotypical Asian woman in each skit - a nail salon artist who offers a “happy ending”, a crazy driver, and a woman running. The writers and Shaun find the skits hilarious but the rest of the comedy group aren’t amused. Alice is confused by the next prompt in the script that instructs her to do martial arts, though it doesn’t specify which type and the writers laugh at the question.

Alice is eating in The Coterie kitchen when Lindsay enters, prompting Alice to tell them that they were right about her falling back on her ethnicity. She feels as though she has opened a Pandora’s Box to Asian stereotypes and regrets doing her mom. Lindsay apologizes for saying that as she has every right to do the interpretation of her mom, though they can’t control how people appropriate their jokes. As non-binary or Asian comics, they do jokes about how people don’t understand them but to some people, it’s just laughing at their differences. They just have to show them that what makes them funny isn’t just what makes them different.

Lindsay and Magda have a skit where Lindsay plays a customer returning their burrito and Magda is the sassy employee. The writers and Scott find it hilarious but Alice is less receptive. Scott calls Alice next while continuing to loudly boast about Magda’s dialogue. Alice takes the stage where she thanks the writers but wanted to try out some new characters. She plays Chrysanthemum a new age woman, Obama doing an impression of Khalid, and Cardi B directing traffic. Everyone seems to enjoy the skits.

156964 0017.jpg
Alice’s new characters are praised by Derek, who tells her that he doesn’t want to play a bumbling jihadist either. But they have to play along until they can get through. He asked the writers to write them a sketch together and hands her the script. Alice and Derek perform their extremely racial skit for Scott and the writers, though Lindsay is visibly annoyed. The skit ends though the comedy troupe remains unamused despite the writers being enthralled. Alice is left feeling confused, conflicted, and uncomfortable.

In Closing Arguments, Margaret coaches the CBTV group while Sumi and Ruby work on the unicorn costumes. Sumi is happy that Ruby is back with Alice and learns that the pair broke up. Magda tells everyone to check their phones as someone leaked an HR email that wasn’t meant for them. The group reads the email from HR which names Alice as the recipient of the talent deal and the $70,000. Alice is confused and Magda continues to read the email which bluntly says, “it’s been a few years since an Asian has won the deal. Asian’s are hot this year. Shaun is Asian too, but also trans, which confuses things haha.” The email continues to mention Margaret Cho as a director and how that makes it best to reward another female Asian comic. Alice apologizes for how messed up it is. Lindsay isn’t surprised while Stacey believes that Alice deserves the deal. Derek doesn’t agree so Magda reminds him that the whole thing would have been called off if it wasn’t for Alice. Alice thinks they all deserve it and won’t take the deal. Lindsay tells her not to be a martyr and take the deal. Sanjana knows they can take advantage of the attention they’re getting from casting directors and agents to further their careers. Shaun wants to use them back. Alice asks Margaret for her advice and Margaret admits that offers aren’t always offered for the purest reasons but that doesn’t mean she shouldn’t accept it. The group wants to do the showcase and support Alice.

Margaret welcomes everyone to the comedy showcase and introduces them to their talented comedians. Before the show, Ruby had called a meeting with the women in charge as the comedians quit the program after learning “Asians are in this year”. Now, the comedians fill the stage. Back with Margaret, she tells them that her big breaks didn’t come from networks or studios but from friends looking out for each other. If they aren’t happy with what happened today, they should do something about it. Now, the comedy troupe is hosting their showcase at the Palace as she has friends to support them. They thank Kelly for hooking them up with the Palace Hotel. Alice performs her skit in honor of her mother and David tells their mother the skit is her and she frowns then realizes she is funny. Alice sees her family laughing. The comedy troupe takes their final bow but Margaret tells them that the comedy group has something special for Alice to cushion the blow of losing the contract and 70k. They sing her a song they wrote for her as they praise her. Alice stands after and hugs her troupe.

Alice and Sumi walk back to The Coterie as they discuss the showcase. Alice offers her a nightcap but Sumi declines. Alice admits she isn’t seeing Ruby but Sumi already knows. Alice wanted her to think that because she’s scared of Sumi because it was so hard to get over Sumi last time. It took her a long time to get her voice and stand up to people. She isn’t the same person that went on Sumi’s first date with Meera before they broke up. Sumi apologizes for doing that to Alice as she isn’t that same person either. She only wants to be the part that is still in love with Alice. Alice doesn’t want to fall into old patterns and doesn’t want to risk it. Alice thinks she and Sumi are better off as friends so Sumi emotionally agrees. They say goodnight with Alice going into her loft.

Season 4

In "Turn and Face the Strange", Alice has left The Coterie to pursue a last-minute opening comedy act for Margaret Cho. She's left Sumi in charge. Alice gives Sumi tips for applications for new residents. Sumi wants her to relax and enjoy her act. She shouldn't worry about The Coterie. The fire alarm goes off so Sumi ends the call quickly. The next day, Sumi tells Alice she's $5,550 richer, as she sublet her loft to Isabella to fix her money problem. Sumi reminds her it's a business transaction and won't let Alice be taken advantage of any longer, as her niceness is what got her stepped on before. They just have to keep the fact Gael is paying for the sublet a secret.

In "Kiss Me and Smile For Me", Alice surprises The Coterie while on hiatus from her tour with Margaret Cho. She is thrilled to see the moms and hugs them, and everyone else, happily. The Coterie crew sit for dinner and compliment Isabella and Dennis on dinner. Stef asks Alice about touring and she says it's a dream come true. Lena asks Malika about her job transition but she isn't sure yet, and asks Lena about her job. Lena admits that being in the majority doesn't change the uphill battle. The governor has approved Lena's idea, though. Joaquin asks where she stands on defunding the police and she admits it's up to each city, but he calls her out for dodging the question. Mariana explains he's a journalist which is why everything is an interrogation. Joaquin doesn't think there are any good cops, with Mariana admitting that Stef used to be a cop. The conversation keeps going and they talk about trouble with texting, as Jude is still having communication issues with Carter. Steff tells Jude to get off his phone. Jude admits they're having trouble with sexting. When the moms discuss their sext life, the kids are mortified while the rest of the table cheers. Callie tells Jude to stop playing games and reading into things. Jude asks why she can't be honest with Mariana. Mariana is confused and asks what's going on and why the moms are there. They aren't there because of Ka'maya, and Mariana confronts Callie. Callie admits she got a job with the ACLU in Washington D.C. so she's moving there in two days. Mariana leaves the table rather emotionally.

The family dinner turns into a party with shots, as Mariana toasts to her sister, who is changing the world. Throughout the night, the girls do multiple shots together. A drunk Alice has an image of Sandra Bullock in her loft that always brings her luck. Now, she wants Callie to have it. Callie asks if she's sure she wants to part with it, but Alice is sure. She hopes that when Callie looks upon Sandra that she'll think of Alice and smile. She then hugs Callie tightly.

Callie clinks her glass to call everyone together. She is going to try to talk without crying. She thanks them for the going away party. Callie had no idea that she was moving into a communal living space. After sharing a bathroom with four siblings, the thought of sharing one other with a dozen strangers was a nightmare. But she had no idea how lucky she was that her sister tricked her into moving here. When you leave the family that you were born into or adopted into, you go out in the world and make a chosen family of friends. She will never find a better chosen family than them. Callie loves them all so much and thanks them for letting her be part of The Coterie. They clap for her and then Malika turns the music back on and they all dance together happily. Callie and Mariana embrace as they dance, then Callie hugs Malika and Alice. She smiles happily.

In "Something Unpredictable, But in the End It's Right", Alice returns to The Coterie where she attends Dennis's 30th birthday party alongside Sumi. Kelly greets Sumi and Alice, then learns that Alice and Sumi are back together. Flashing back, Gael and Isabella greet Alice and Sumi at The Coterie but are surprised to see Alice back so soon. Alice explains that Margaret canceled her tour for a movie. Isabella will move out of the loft ASAP, but Alice tells her it's fine as she's moving in with Sumi. They hold hands up as they say they're back together. Now, Kelly isn't thrilled with their ship names or them as Sumi cheated last time. She guesses people can change. Malika, Alice, and Kelly sing karaoke, though Kelly watches Joaquin as she performs her song. Sumi follows suit with a slow song to Alice. Malika asks Sumi if she's back with Alice and then apologizes for her tour being short. Alice admits it's all fine.

The Coterie crew sits for dinner. Dennis thanks the girls for the party and everyone for celebrating with him. The girls ask about Callie, and Mariana admits they've been busy and haven't had the chance to talk. Dennis asks that she tell Callie they miss her. Malika wants to cherish these moments since they'll all move out eventually. Isabella admits that she and Gael are thinking of moving out for a year since The Coterie isn't baby-proof. Everyone offers to do their part to make The Coterie safer, with Mariana offering to move lofts so they can live downstairs. Dennis tells them that the first nine months when their baby isn't walking and having extra hands around a newborn is good. Isabella remarks that's a good hand and she loves the idea of aunties and uncles being around. As a future auntie, Alice toasts Dennis for his birthday. Kelly gives Dennis a bottle of champagne that came for him and reads the card, which congratulates him on the new baby. The card is from Jennifer. He emotionally admits that they ran into Jennifer who has a new baby and how she mistook Isabella for being with Dennis. Gael thinks it's a good assumption since Dennis is so involved and tells them to just tell him when the baby is coming so he can show up. He storms away from the dinner.

That night, after the party, Alice offers to sleep on the floor in Sumi's loft but doesn't want Sumi to sleep on the floor even if her not being in her own loft is Sumi's fault. They argue over Sumi's choices as manager, then Alice leaves to sleep in the vestibule. Sumi texts Margaret and ask why Alice left, but Margaret doesn't know as she just up and quit one day. Sumi confronts her for lying and demands to know the truth.

In "Take These Chances", Alice is performing stand-up to a laughing audience, who suddenly morph into large ants. She goes to the kitchen where she overhears Davia and Joaquin discussing an overnight guest. She asks who crashed and when. She reminds Joaquin that overnight guests have to be approved by the manager, which Kelly finds funny as the rules are never enforced there. Alice loudly tells everyone she's bringing back the chore chart and community services, late fees, and 10 minute caps on showers. She sees a cluster of ants and angrily shouts about having them. Davia asks Joaquin if he can get in touch with Luca, who suggests an encampment near Skid Row. Dennis refuses to let Davia go alone so she agrees to let him come. Alice continues her rant over people leaving food and dirty dishes around which creates crumbs for ants. Malika asks Sumi what's wrong with Alice.

Sumi remembers confronting Alice about lying over quitting the tour and lying. Alice doesn't want to do stand-up anymore and didn't want questions. She changed her mind after being on tour and seeing the real environment. She doesn't want to talk about it either. Now, Sumi tells Malika that she'll explain later. Alice continues to warn about thousands of ants nearby with a queen.

Throughout the day, Alice sends Davia and Dennis a photo of a a peanut butter covered spoon and the waste from Dennis's food truck, telling them to do better. Malika gets a text from Alice with a photo of an open bottle of toothpaste surrounded by ants.

Alice is injecting lemon water into the floors to tell the queen ant that it's time to move so she can kill them all. Malika tells Alice that she knows about her leaving the tour and giving up comedy. She asks if Alice is okay and Alice insists everything is fine. She didn't have a bad or she just changed her mind and doesn't want to be interrogated. Malika tries to encourage her to keep going and not quit. She references them saving a bird, trying a metaphor about new things and old things. In the meantime, she bought ant traps to help.

GT 407 Still13.jpg

In a flashback, a man concludes a comedy set before another introduces Alice for the stand-up bit. Alice freezes before she goes on. She tells her parents and they tell her to keep it a secret, to keep quiet, and she promises to stay quiet. When the man introduces her, Alice runs upstairs and away from the stage. Now, Alice breaks down upstairs and then sees a trail of ants on the wall and floor. She finds her bag nearby and opens it up to find an open Rice Krispy treat covered in ants. Alice begins to cry over it as Sumi enters. She sees the scene and Alice admits she found the source of the ants. It was her and it was her fault. She breaks down sobbing as Sumi holds her on the couch trying to console her.

In "I Don't Belong Here", Sumi and Alice prepare to have lunch with her parents. Alice thinks having Sumi there is a bad idea. They pretend not to see them. Alice has second thoughts about telling her parents she quit, pressing that issue firmly with Sumi, all while Alan waves manically from his table. The parents come over to them instead and they embrace Sumi first.

Alice's parents look forward to her LA show. Sumi explains that Alice won't be performing there as Margaret booked comics already. Her parents wonder if it's related to what happened, but Alice tries to cover it up. Alan begins to speak but Trea covers it up. Sumi presses for information so Alice admits that she was on stage when a heckler started.

Alice performs her stand-up when a heckler shouts out how she keeps her girlfriends hair out of her mouth while going down. Alice claps back by saying it's clear he's never done it before. He's never had complaints so she retorts that he's never had a second date. He shouts that she sucks so she returns the sentiment and continues to heckle him back. The audience claps for her. After the set, Alice is approached by the heckler who calls her unfunny. She's alone and he won't let her got. He calls her a joke and uses a racial slur before throwing a drink on her. He runs away as she is left standing alone and emotional.

Alice finishes the story and is emotional. Sumi apologizes and asks if she told the police or Margaret. Alan told her not too as she wasn't physically harmed so there was no reason to make waves. Sumi believes she was assaulted. Trea explains they might be Chinese-Americans but are seen as Chinese first even if they are citizens. Sumi wipes Alice's tear as Alan explains that going public could make it worse. This time it was a soda but it could be a gun next time. Trea wants to keep her daughter safe. Alice assures them that it's over and she's fine.

Back at The Coterie, Sumi approaches Alice as she knows she's not fine. As a woman, proud Asian, and human being, what happened to her was terrifying and humiliating. She doesn't agree with her parents advice but does understand it. She joined the cheer team in high school and was the only Asian. The girls gave her the nickname Sushi, which she hated, but she didn't say anything because she wanted to be their friend. She complained to the coach one day and got them reprimanded so they stopped being her friend. No more sleepovers or sitting at lunch together. What happened wasn't as scary or violent as Alice's, but she understands the price of speaking out. She didn't quit cheer because she really loved it. Giving up something you love is to high a price to pay for the ignorance of others. Alice thanks her for sharing that with her and they hold hands. Sumi asks if she's warm enough out in the hallway and Alice has extra blankets. They say goodnight as Sumi goes back into her loft. Alice sneaks into Sumi's room with a pillow and blanket. She gets into bed next to her so they begin to cuddle and Alice begins to cry.

In "That's Me in the Spotlight", Alice finds a lack of food in her cupboard. Sumi emerges and notices she just got up. Alice plans to have food delivered and admits it's been a while since she's left The Coterie. Sumi asks if she's scared to leave but she claims she's not. She's also not going to Davia's show as she's coming down with something.

GT 409 Still19.jpg

That afternoon, Sumi asks Alice how she's doing, so Alice lies about being sick. Alice is tagged on a post where people flood her comments with positive responses to her. She flashes back to the heckler and his racist comment and attack. She begins to have a panic attack and rushes to the kitchen calling for anyone, but they're all gone. She goes to the burlesque show and sits between Malika and Sumi. After the show, Alice compliments Davia for being amazing and brave. Davia admits he almost quit as the dancing pictures she posted made her want to hide and give up. Alice asks why she didn't, with Davia realizing that the fear is crippling when she doesn't face it.

GT 409 Still3.jpg

Alice leaves to get a drink and Sumi joins her. She asks why she changed her mind. Alice saw a video of the heckler and everyone commented on how brave she was as a female comic to stand up to him. She doesn't feel brave. She's scared to leave the house or be alone. She should have said something about what happened. Sumi assures her it's not too late. The women head to a comedy club for a late night stand up gig. Alice walks on-stage to perform. Sumi records her. Alice can't perform as she begins to see the heckler everywhere. She starts her stand-up despite the nerves. She talks about go viral for standing up against her heckler on-stage, only to be assaulted after the show by him. She felt scared and ashamed but didn't tell anyone as she was afraid of being trouble. She then thought why he wasn't ashamed, but she can't do that if she's silent. The crowd supports her.
