Clint and Tracie
Clint is working with his dad or better yet badgering his dad into making Mama Clint accept Tracie. I’m team Mama Clint here – stick to your boundaries and don’t meet Tracie. Tracie is out shopping in all of her glitter eyeshadow straight out of 1998. She heads into a furniture store trying to give her house with Clint a “women’s touch”. Ok. Tracie starts telling her life story to the poor sales associate who says that she will Tracie’s friend for the day. Girl, you’re not going to last an hour, trust me. After buy a comforter, Tracie plans to hightail it home but instead makes her way to the local watering hole with the comforter. A disaster. There she orders tequila and pours her heart out to the poor bartender who is moonlighting as a therapist as well. SMH. Tracie arrives home to find a bewildered Clint who thought Tracie had relapsed with only 22 hours left on her parole. Tracie explains that she was lonely and went to the bar but didn’t have a drink. She no longer needs alcohol. Clint lets her know that Father Clint has invited them over for brunch with Mama Clint’s blessing. That should be one interesting brunch – hopefully it’s all you can drink.
Michael, Meghan and Sarah
We pick up with our favorite threesome with Sarah screaming into the phone at Michael. All this stress can’t be good for baby or my ears. Bloody hell Sarah divorce this man already and just co-parent. He doesn’t want you. Sarah is mostly pissed because Meghan picked up Michael from jail AND he didn’t call her as soon as he got out. She keeps saying he should have called Aviannah but really she’s pissed because he didn’t call her first. Basically there is a lot of yelling from Sarah and Michael calming asking if she wants a divorce, explaining he doesn’t have a GF (uhhh what?), and that he wants to coparent. It’s clear he’s checked out of all front of his relationship. He text Meghan to come pick him up since Sarah has him all stressed out…it’s 5:30 and he has to be back by 7pm. Michael asked Meghan if she’s been with anyone else when he has a WHOLE wife and a child on the way. A child he made while out of prison the first time. I don’t even know why he bothered but Day Day request that Meghan return her brother by 7pm so he doesn’t fuck up parole on day 1. He can fuck on day 2.
Lamar and Andrea
The only person that is excited to see Lamar is the little baby. She’s jumping on the couch ala Tom Cruise and spelling Dad. She needs to spell L-O-S-E-R. Tennyson and Nyla barely speak to Lamar because they no longer trust him after his recent return to prison. Lamar wants soul food even though Andrea and Nyla went to the store to make him a home cooked meal. Nyla explains that they worked hard to prepare him a meal but Lamar’s selfish behind doesn’t want to wait for a homecooked meal. Oy! They head out to a soul food restaurant for his first meal back in society. Andrea wasted her tears in the produce section for nothing. Nyla wants an apology but Lamar skirts around apologizing to the family for his behavior.
LIzzie and Scott
This week Lizzie taught us how to make prison cheese sauce: Cheetos and water. Yum. Why is Lizzie still making meals like she’s in prison. You’re in the free world. You can afford actual cheese now. Jasz comes over for dinner and looks appalled at the cheese sauce. Hopefully Lizzie didn’t serve only that for dinner. Lizzie talks over her date which was horrible and how she almost called Scott. Lizzie misses Scott
and his willingness to give her money...she’s thinking about giving him another chance. Jasz is rightfully upset and gives her mom and ultimatum – him or her. Bad move Jasz because Mama Bear is going to do what Mama Bear.
Brittany and Marcelino
Brittany and Marcelino are headed to the lawyer to figure out custody for Giovanni. Brittany’s baby daddy, Tito, filed and won full custody while Brittany was in prison or just out of prison. She never received the notice of the trial and the court granted Tito custody. However, Gio has been staying with Brittany and Marcelino since she’s been out of prison. Brittany only wants 50/50 custody and rights to her son. Fair enough. Marcellino wants full custody which Brittany and the lawyer think is a big mistake with Brittany’s record. I agree as well. Later that evening Marcellino doubles down on his desire for full custody. He thinks Tito is a low life (ummm…what about your prison bae wife?) and a horrible father (he missed a birthday and thanksgiving). Marcellino believes that Gio is better off with him and Brittany…but Brittany still doesn’t want to go head to head with Tito. Me thinks Tito probably has something on Brittany.
I must note that I’ve been a bit bored by the start of this season. I was so looking forward to it but it is a little meh. Hopefully it gets better!
