How You Gonna Forget My Birthday? – Vin, Darius, Jazzy, Wayne, Toya

On top of Wayne playing in Jazzy’s face by getting engaged to Whitney and maybe getting her pregnant, he forgets her birthday! For the whole day, she asks and checks with strangers like Darius and her masseuse Vin to Toya about how she should feel and what she should do, and the consensus is to mind his actions.

For example, Toya and Vin say, since you think you might be pregnant, tell him and note how he reacts, and that should tell you what you need. Jazzy does this, but Wayne doesn’t give any sort of enthusiastic answer and says this isn’t a good time for him. Note: He doesn’t outright say for her to get an abortion, check if she took the Plan B pill or anything like that. All he does is make it clear the timing is off, just like he makes clear, because his son Wesley was sick, that is why he didn’t contact Jazzy on her birthday.

Yet, Jazzy is still frustrated with Wayne. Maybe not enough to cut him off as she seems, mentally, ready to. However, with a love poem he gives, it seems he might hook her right back.

On The Fence

Wayne Doesn’t Do Or Say Enough To Keep You From Side-Eyeing Jazzy

I get it. Wayne is rich and tall and has beautiful skin. However, beyond that, I don’t get it. Is it that Jazz isn’t approached a lot or by men of that caliber, so what charm Wayne has is more than enough to compensate for everything else? Could the d*** game? I mean, she is letting a man she doesn’t have a relationship hit raw and not asking him to help pay for the Plan B pill or anything.

Either way, stroke game good or not, increasingly, it seems things are a little too shallow to not look down on Jazzy for continuing this.

Caught Up: Season 1/ Episode 3 "A Love Poem" – Overview


Call me a flip flop, but now I’m cool with this being four episodes since “Caught Up” focusing everyone on Wayne and Jazzy’s situationship is keeping this from reaching the heights I thought it could.
