A Hard Man To Love – Michelle, Eric, Erica

Thanks to Eric, Erica’s legal troubles have gone away, but with Robin, Imani, and the rest still out there? He isn’t keen on his sister not having proper protection. Which doesn’t sit well with Erica because living in Eric’s dungeon is not her idea of a good time. She’d rather be at Dr. Cintron’s house and maybe even be honest with him.

However, Eric is against that, even with Michelle knowing all of his business. This leads to Erica asking why it is Eric and Michelle just couldn’t work it out and Eric using the same excuse he used for Gi – That he is unable to love. Which quickly prompts an appropriate eye roll.

Preparation For What’s To Come – Imani, Robin, Detective Ryan

Detective Ryan catching Robin's eye

With it being clear there can’t be a shared rule between Imani and Robin and that Imani will not back down, Robin seems to seek a means of getting the upper hand. So, when she was due to meet with Brian and talk about the twins, she comes across Detective Ryan and successfully seduces him. Leading to the two of them starting an affair and maybe Robin having a bit more manpower than Imani expects her to.

What Do We Have Without Trust & Communication – Detective Ryan, Tanya, Erica, Dr. Cintron, Brian, Eric

While it was established Detective Ryan and Tanya were going through a rough patch, who knew he could be so easily swayed? But, rather than take that situation with Robin and turn it into a reason to do better or break things off, no mention of the affair is given. Nor are we shown he plans to do more than keep Robin his little secret.

Speaking of secrets, as Dr. Cintron tries to get closer to Erica, she puts up walls, and with that, he starts listing every single reason he can imagine for her to not trust him – including being with another man. However, unlike when Robin wore down Detective Ryan, all of these accusations don’t get Erica to spill the beans.

But you know who will be spilling something, like blood? Well, it might be Brian. You see, he decides to tease Erica his association with Robin, and she takes it very seriously. So Brian is likely going to end up one of the newest people to see Eric’s dungeon.



Robin’s Prep For The War To Come

The war between Robin and Imani has mostly been in words and gestures thus far, with each trying the other’s patience. However, with Imani ordering the murder of the twins, while not a declaration of war, it seems to have pushed Robin to get prepared for when it happens. Because, Detective Ryan is looking for suspects, and while she hates her siblings, there is this push and pull between protecting them yet knowing they are suffering.

So, who better than Imani to pin the murders on and have her taken down without Robin getting her hands dirty? Bonus points for making Imani seem inept at running the organization and Robin getting some quality penis in the process.

What Eric Is About To Do To Brian

Brian, before Eric snatches him up

I’m still trying to understand how Erica can even look Brian in the eyes without stabbing him with a scalpel. He raped her, is cocky, and tried to send her to jail too! So considering Eric has snatched him up, it is time for a much-needed comeuppance, and I don’t know about you, but I am positively giddy for the next episode of Double Cross.
