Recap

Making The Best Of A Bad Situation – Hollywood, Gabriel, Aunt Vi, Celine, Prosper, Billie, Sandy, Nova

While Blue is away, Hollywood gets his kicks hanging out with Gabriel by taking him fishing and their time together even helps him deal with his mom’s passing. Meanwhile, Aunt Vi tries to push Celine into divorcing her husband, Grant, which she is fearful of doing. But with there being no moving on until she frees herself from him, she knows she can’t just hang around Vi, hiding out, for the rest of her and Gabriel’s life.

Speaking of hiding out, despite all the threats on her life, Nova isn’t planning to hide behind her door and get skittish. She gets cameras installed and still goes out and does the work. Be it work on her paper or talking to Billie and finishing the conversation they had. One which may benefit Billie more than Nova right now since it seems Billie doesn’t have any friends. Heck, based on her discussion with Prosper, she may barely have a marriage.

Though Billie has no plans to stay in St. Jo forever, she preps for the long term, which includes getting her dad a nurse. Now, between Aunt Vi and her family, you know Prosper doesn’t feel like he needs any stranger in his house. However, the man doesn’t consistently take his meds, and Billie is worried about him. So, against his wishes, she hires a nurse, Sandy, who Prosper ain’t mad at. Mainly since it seems like he has a crush on her.

Someone Had To Be Happy, Why Can’t It Be Me? – Charley

For most members of the Bordelon family, if they aren’t dealing with a crisis, they are involved in someone else’s. The only exception to that is Charley, who is focused on changing her national image. Hence her interview with Gayle King about her life, personal and professional, and being in DC meeting with party leadership.

When It Rains It Pours – Ralph Angel, Nova, Darla, Aunt Vi, Micah, Isiah

Remember that woman Micah was secretly seeing? His professor? Well, they break up. Why? Well, she just wanted some young and vigorous D, and Micah ruined that for her by catching feelings. So now, with them over, all he has out in Xavier is Isiah, who fields most of his highs and lows.

Back in St. Jo, Ralph Angel is struggling and what makes things worse is that, using Nova’s book as evidence, the cops are now digging up his land trying to find dead bodies. But, to make matters worse, Ralph Angel discovers, after a soil test, there is a high concentration of pesticides on his land, and guess who he blames: The Landrys.

Yes, the name of the boogieman of St. Jo and Queen Sugar is invoked, but luckily no one from that family appears. However, in light of the situation, Aunt Vi sets aside her beef to support her nephew. Someone who was of heavy belief that Vi would just show up to twist the knife a bit.

Things To Note | Question(s) Left Unanswered

Question(s) Left Unanswered

  1. With Davis’ daughter’s name invoked, does that mean she’ll appear or not? Never mind, will Charley’s political opponent, whoever they are, use that child, and their mom, to start trouble?
  2. Not that I want any of them to return, but considering how much their name is brought up, what is happening with the Landry family members who aren’t in jail?
  3. What happened to that young girl Micah was seeing who was enamored by Charley?
  4. Is there anything in Billie’s life that makes her happy?
  5. How much more fallout will Nova’s book cause over the course of the series?
  6. All things considered, why hasn’t Ralph Angel invested in security, even if just a dog, considering how many times people have rolled up on his property and considering his relationship with a good portion of his non-Black neighbors?

What Could Happen Next

  1. I’m still fully expecting Hollywood to talk about adopting a kid or fostering one because of what spending time with Gabriel brought out of him.
  2. I am still waiting on Nova’s book hitting Charley’s political career and hurting it more than Davis coming back in the picture.
  3. Ralph Angel ending up right back where he was due to his pride.

Highlights

Micah’s Situationship Ending Quickly

Their chemistry wasn’t all that great, and while it would have been interesting to see an older woman with a younger man, even if there was a power imbalance, it’s better for them to kill off this storyline now than try to make it work. We’re 6 seasons in, let’s not force a cube into a spherical hole.

Prosper Got Himself A Crush

For the most part, it seems Queen Sugar is striking out with trying to make new relationships. Micah’s was discarded, Nova’s doesn’t illicit much interest, but Prosper? He and his nurse, Sandy, those two are worth rooting for. Especially since the way Prosper acts around Vi sometimes, as much as men and women can be friends, there are times I wonder, if Vi wasn’t Earnest’s sister, would he have made a move?

On The Fence

The Drama Nova’s Book Continues To Bring

A part of me appreciates that Nova’s book is still brought up, because it loomed over an entire season and was just peak messy. Yet, with us 6 seasons in and after a pretty chill season 5, I must admit it is a struggle to get back into this level of drama. And you and I both know this Ralph Angel thing is just the beginning. Sooner or later, Nova’s book, and what was written in it, is going to affect Charley’s campaign for whatever office she is going to run for.
