It’s Called Growth – Aunt Vi, Celine, Micah, Ms. Parker, Isiah
Despite how things are ending, Aunt Vi still has a soft spot for Celine, and they end their relationship amicably, with Aunt Vi giving Celine a little something to hold her over. Which, considering all Aunt Vi put Billie through, we’ll call this growth.
But she isn’t alone in showing growth. Micah, on two occasions, shows he will not succumb to the ignorance of his peers or fall into old habits. When Ms. Parker tries to come onto him after a presentation, he not only rejects her but when Isiah and him share a moment and his peers see, Micah brings him closer rather than pushes him away.
Blood Is Thicker Than The Land Of The Earth – Ralph Angel, Darla, Aunt Vi, Hollywood, Charley, Sam
Because of Ralph Angel’s actions and Theo setting him up, Sam pretty much says that either he can give up the land or Ralph Angel can go to jail. This leads to everyone being upset. Hollywood tells him off, Darla tells him off, and as for Aunt Vi and Charley? Well, they are just disappointed that he didn’t say anything.
But for Ralph Angel, Aunt Vi’s words about being a man struck him, so he did what he had to do. And as for Charley? Just in general, Ralph Angel didn’t want to ask for help. He knows damn near everyone but him has money or access to it, but he wanted to prove himself, and now he is going to pay the consequence – which is giving up his daddy’s land.
The World Doesn’t Revolve Around None Of Us – Charley, Nova
While Ralph Angel is going through losing the farm, Nova still has her home ransacked as it was and her personal safety threatened. Charley is the first to learn of this, and between what her sister and brother are going through, she feels powerless. So, with that in mind, she decides she will run for congress. It isn’t clear whether the party will have her go for a Louisiana or California seat, but she will run for congress.
Things To Note | Question(s) Left Unanswered
Things To Note
- Billie and Prosper continue to bond, and she even plays to stay in St. Jo longer.
Question(s) Left Unanswered
- So Prosper wasn’t aware, at all, of the abuse Vi was going through or just not at the time when Jimmy Dale was trying to mess with his daughter?
- Considering how long it took Aunt Vi to shake off Jimmy Dale’s words, why does she have the sharpest tongue in her family and is quick to cast judgment and damn someone?
- Charley does realize if she runs for congress, a Landry will likely take her council seat, right?
What Could Happen Next
- Assuming they lose the farm, Ralph Angel’s next chapter since that farm was his life, his home, how he made money, and he hasn’t really pursued much outside of it. He even quit his job at the nursing home.
- Charley having a real nasty battle for congress, which likely will be the focus of season 7 since we haven’t had a 13 episode season since season 4, and we only had a 16 episode season in season 2.
- Nova changing how she does her activism since she no longer was taking her issues to the people but found herself dealing with oppressive forces storming her home.
- Is it wrong I want Micah to maybe experiment with Isiah? Which, admittedly, comes from knowing the actor who plays him is gay, or at least in a relationship with a man (Justice Smith to be specific).
Collected Quote(s) & .Gifs
Just because we don’t choose right the first time, it doesn’t mean we can’t on the last.
Hollywood and Darla Telling Ralph Angel Off
As Hollywood noted, all Ralph Angel was expected to do was to maintain the family farm and land. It was really the only thing everyone collectively asked him to do, and gave him the autonomy to do it. Yet, he risked it. Because of his pride, and ego, he risked it, and I’m so glad Darla and Hollywood told him off.
Heck, Hollywood especially since you know how Ralph Angel can be with women. So a man telling him off, I think that hit him more than anyone else.
Charley’s Eventual Run For Congress
The show has been extending the idea throughout the season and it seems it may finally hit in the next, but with that comes the question of how it will be handled and what powers would Charley gain? This is a big question since the show has been practicing with Micah how to give a character their due separate from everyone else, and Charley has often lived a close, but seperate life. But this would be next level and, fingers crossed, could mean the return of Darla’s parents, especially her dad, since he works at capital hill.
Micah Embracing Isiah Closer When People Saw Them
What you have to appreciate about Micah and Isiah’s relationship is that we so rarely see this kind of friendship. Micah, to our knowledge, is straight, Isiah is assumingly gay (did he ever confirm he was?), and yet Micah doesn’t make it awkward or push Isiah away. He loves Isiah, talks about inviting him into his house, and shows how he feels both privately and publicly. This to us is progress and certainly a step above Ralph Angel’s friend who disappeared and could have been a great help to him, and Nova considering her present circumstances.
Aunt Vi Is A Head Scratcher
One of the things we’ve always found curious is how Aunt Vi treats those she claims she loves with the most cruelty yet can so easily forgive a stranger. Celine tried to kiss and step to Aunt Vi’s man, despite all the charity done for her. Yet, when it came to Darla, or even Billie, it took years for not only some form of forgiveness, but a conversation to hear the other person’s side. So should we consider this growth on Aunt Vi’s part, maybe Hollywood’s influence, or is she doing things on a case by case basis with people who aren’t family? I just want to know whether Celine got handled how she did since she wasn’t someone Vi would have to deal with long term.
