When Danny becomes the victim of vicious and disturbing pranks - and I do mean vicious and disturbing - Lacey doesn't just stand by. The moment she gets some info, she drops whatever she's doing and heads to his home to warn him.
There are also more kisses in this ep, which never gets old...and by the way they started getting undressed with each other at the end of the episode (yes, I said "undressed"), it appears things are going to get even steamier between these two.
As usual, Kylie Bunbury looked fabulous...and this is right about where the good ends.
Now onto the bad.
I am soooooooo tired of hearing about Lacey's fear of people finding out that she's messing around with Danny Desai. It sounds like a poor man's PSA on peer pressure; I strongly blame the writers for this because it doesn't make any sense. This mindless repetitive writing has been noted before on the show (particularly where Danny simply won't say why he strangled his aunt), and it poses a serious problem. It's contradictory and leaves the audience feeling restless and unsure about the writers' ability to maintain the show.
For example, at the beginning of the episode, Lacey states she's not willing to lose her friends because they've helped her through some rough times.
Um, if they're such good friends, why can't they just stick with her through this?
Also, the beginning of the show got us into the idea that Lacey is a stone-cold strategist who is, you know, strong? Why can't she just find a way to spin this in her favor?
Lastly...this is very un-Negro of her. Black women, you know how it is when you're with someone. Some folks can't accept it and have to weigh in or sabotage it or what have you. If you're a Black girl dating Danny Desai, do you really want to sit back and let the female population assume he's single? Jo ain't following him around all day for nothing, ladies, and all those girls calling him "Socio" still want him. The moment they find out he's been getting naughty with Lacey, they'll start singing a different tune.
Did anyone else feel horribly deceived by the beginning of this scene?
Here's the sneak peek from next week, where alas...the annoying secrecy continues. At least the amazingly believable chemistry between the two continues. As irritated as I am with the writers, at least the actors are vastly exceeding expectations.
