    I read that the finale is 1 hour, but it may not be not so difficult. My predictions: Looks like they're setting the stage with Lyn/Johnny and Emma/Nico. Eddy hooks up with the drag king who likes her and Lyn and Emma continue to co-own the bar. Not sure about Mari. Besides protesting, what is she interested in? I doubt Victor will stay around long. Emma clearly hates him and after what he did to Vida, I can't blame her. Lyn will learn the hard way that her father isn't what he seems. Ooh, that would be interesting. I did notice that Yoli wasn't among the protestors, even though she's vocal about how much she hates Emma and Lyn. Maybe she knows something about the group, or she realized that Mari is right.

    I thought the exact same thing. Her nipples were obviously showing when she tried the top on at the house, so I don't know how she didn't see it later. I just thought Lyn was going to put on a slip or a bra before she left. I wonder if Lyn is really ashamed of the direction the bar is taking, or she's just that insecure about what Rudy and his mother think of it. However she feels, she needs to end it with Rudy, things aren't going to improve. Mari was right about the protest group; all they do is talk and plan but they don't do anything real. That's why they're screaming at the bar every night, it's an easy target that makes it look like they're getting something done. Meanwhile, the neighborhood is being gentrified and swallowed up by the larger corporations, but the protest group conveniently ignores that. Mari was right to leave when she did, and I'm glad Emma told them off. Johnny did look unhappy, and I don't think that's just a lack of sleep due to newfound fatherhood. And if Karla is still holding a grudge, then she and Johnny need to end it. They're just dragging things out now. Looks like they're setting up someone for Eddy to move on with, and that's nice. The other members of the drag group were awful, though. I didn't like that Victor basically told Emma that he'd be waiting for her when she was ready, like nothing really happened. I think he's full of shit and he's hiding behind his newfound religion.

    Even without Johnny in the situation, Lyn and Rudy won’t make it. She’ll never live up to his mother‘s expectations. Rudy’s got some sexual hang ups that he won’t discuss with Lyn, and I doubt Rudy will stand up to his mother, anyway. I knew the bowl would get shattered. But it was worth it to see Emma high as a kite.
  4. Maybe I’m being sensitive, but I thought that stunt the bridal party pulled was just mean, and not in the least bit funny. Bad enough that they guzzled her wine, but skipping out on the check, too? What trash. I wish Issa had run into them for real. I could’ve done without the scene with George, amusing as it was. Between Issa’s conversation with her mother and her responding to the positive questions for the party, the episode ended strong. I get why she didn’t confront Molly.

    You can see how much Lyn has matured. She made an effort not to tell her news to Johnny since he was already depressed, and in the old days, she would have just spilled the beans without a second thought. And I really liked her discussion with Emma at the end. It's Emma's right not to see their father if she doesn't want to, but that doesn't mean she gets to decide for Lyn as well. This episode felt slow. I hate that Eddy only ended up at the bar because she saw her attacker again. I don't need to see the bastard again, but I thought that would lead to something else. Hopefully he doesn't make another appearance. Didn't know Marcos was a teacher. Or is he a professor, since he has a PhD? At any rate, I love his friendship with Lyn. Sucks that Nico is suffering, but just because she's in pain doesn't make her actions any less wrong. Victor was definitely holding back with his story to Lyn, and I'm wondering what he meant by "misbehaving." Abuse? Drugs/alcohol? Hurting his children?
  6. I really thought Issa and Molly were coming to blows during that fight. That sounded like straight up hatred between them. I got why Molly was angry, but she was wrong to bring it up then and there. It made her look vindictive, like she wanted a reason to start something and had just been waiting. They really fooled us with the wobble scene, thinking they were cool again. I like Nathan, but I don't think it matters if he was in town. Dude disappeared without a trace, so Issa doesn't have to be loyal to him. After they spoke last season, it sounded like Issa wanted some time to think, not a given that she wanted him back. Glad the party was a success and it looked like so much fun. Andrew was right, you could tell that took a lot of work and dedication. Hopefully the "gun" incident at the end will be debunked, because this could be the start of something for Issa. Maybe party planning? I love Kelli and I could watch her all day. Especially with Ahmal. I live for their conversations. IA with Dear Evette, I'm not sure what to make of Tiffany, either. A lot of people are speculating PPD, but Tiffany's behavior doesn't seem that off brand. It just looks like she's bored with motherhood already. Is that a symptom of PPD? Derek did say that they weren't ready to have kids yet, so maybe it's all catching up to her. So glad Lawrence didn't show up. Surprised that Daniel didn't but who knows anymore what his role is.

    I know every family has that one relative they can't stand, but the aunt really was awful. Especially when Johnny asked about the casket. Suddenly she has nothing to say except that they'll figure it out on their own. Uh-huh. She's the kind who will take home leftovers, but not bring anything to the table except her appetite. I wouldn't be surprised if the greedy aunt was the one who insisted on the expensive casket. Maybe that's where they always go for funerals, or it's expected that they'll get the best money can buy. Who knows. No matter what, that's a lot to spend on one item when you still have the funeral and other expenses.
  8. After watching the scene again, I can see how Molly came off as being a jerk on the phone, although I don't think she was trying to be one. She clearly thought something was up if the headliner dropped suddenly, but Issa was so rushed and cagey and didn't explain anything else. And honestly, I've been the Issa in this situation, where you don't want to explain the problem, you just want it fixed. Because it means admitting the part where you messed up, if you actually did. No matter what, it's embarrassing. I don't think Issa wanted to ask for Molly's help anyway. Molly was the least supportive of her friends when it came to the block party. Still, Molly's a lawyer, so the prying and by-the-book questions made sense. She may have thought she could help Issa somehow, if there was a legal situation involved. But Issa cut Molly off and asked her to work her magic by speaking to Andrew. Molly was probably offended that anything she had to offer was irrelevant and Issa only needed a hook up. Again, perspective. Molly sees Issa as coming to her for help when Issa blew off the important talk they really needed, Issa sees Molly as lecturing her again for her mistakes. I just realized that any growth Molly is showing is only with Andrew. She's making an effort to communicate, be more flexible, and less judgmental. But she needs to do that with Issa, too. And possibly her family.
  9. Word to all of this, especially Lawrence. It would make sense for Issa to contact Daniel. But someone reminded me (Twitter maybe?) that Daniel pointed out Issa's user tendencies back in s2. He said Issa used him for a quick fling, then again when she needed a place to stay. So maybe that's why she didn't hit him up.
  10. Watching Issa and Molly's "friendship" is like a slow motion train wreck. It's just a snipe here, a side eye there...that's all they do now. Issa came off the worse for that phone call. It's not all on her to make the first move, but Issa was also the one who cancelled their meetup to talk on Thanksgiving. Brushing off Molly like that was foul. Especially for a favor. Interesting perspectives on the phone call. I'm sure Issa saw Molly as judging her for losing her headlining act, but Molly probably saw herself as checking to see if Issa had any legal rights to actually contest the headliner dropping out. Like a contract or if any dues were already paid. And it's worse if Issa had Condola handling all the details. I think it's good that Molly didn't ask Andrew for help. They're not in the honeymoon phase anymore, but not sure if Andrew is all in, either. Side eyeing Derek with his speech. I'm sure he's overflowing with genuine fatherly love, but you don't have to be someone's daughter/wife/sister/mother to deserve respect. Damn, I'll be mad if Condola ghosted Issa. I actually like Condola. This week's Wine Down was meh. I'll hear Natasha Rothwell talk about anything, but Tiffany and Kelli have so little to do, so I wasn't really here for a talk about their relationship. The stuff on Black women and childbirth was good, though.

    Wasn't thrilled with Nico saying that she didn't technically lie and that her marriage wasn't a big deal. It's not her place to decide what's a big deal to Emma. And Nico has had time to tell Emma the truth. She should have done it when what's-her-face returned. I wonder if Johnny and Mari's childhood home is paid for, so Mari can move back in. Did anyone see what was in the paper bag that Mari was holding? Lyn shouldn't have even told Emma about their father. She could have just investigated it on her own and talked to Emma later.

    IA with CarpeFelis, especially about the personal stuff and the mob mentality. Also, I don't think the protesters are really aware of how much debt the Hernandez sisters have, and that keeping the bar afloat will take some serious money. In the season finale, Lyn told Mari that they weren't trying to gentrify the neighborhood, but to create revenue so they could keep the bar, and she asked if Mari had told the protest group that. Mari looked uncomfortable and didn't say anything. Good episode. I read an interview saying that they thought Nico was "too perfect" so they're adding on some conflict with her ex. Blech. No thanks. It's only going to get worse for Mari. Eventually, Yoli and her friends are going to ask why she's so reluctant to protest the bar and she'll have to confess, possibly take sides. Mari can't really take these half-hearted jabs at the sisters anymore, because she knows there's more to the situation. Yoli's father needs to get over his shit and let her back in the house, because I don't think Johnny will do a good job taking care of him. Johnny has his own job, and now a newborn daughter to look after. Clever, subverting the trope with the waiter. Definitely thought Lyn was going for it. I admire how she turned the party to her own favor, but I have a bad feeling about Rudy and his overbearing mother. I would have reacted the same way Emma did when Mari spoke to her. It's good to communicate with the residents, but the protest group can go to hell. Graffiti is one thing, but damn near blinding someone with laundry soap? Uh uh. I wouldn't try to appease them.
  13. Lawrence makes it hard to like him. First he was putting words in Condola's mouth about not wanting a family (rather than her saying that she simply doesn't want to get married again) but I'm not here for him sending DMs to Issa back like he's flirting. She needs to move on. Nathan or Daniel need to make an appearance. Issa should have just gone over to Molly's so they can hash this out. I get that she was taking advice from Ahmad, but this was the wrong situation to apply it. Molly may have been the instigator in the beginning, but now they're both being passive aggressive. They need to grow up and start the conversation, it's not enough to acknowledge the problem. Molly needs to have a talk with her father, too. Whether or not she forgives him, the silent treatment isn't healthy for her. Issa and her brother's Thanksgiving was the best part. Jean Elie (Ahmad) said he would have more to do this season so I'm guessing this is what he meant. He and Issa work as brother and sister very well. They even have the same goofy sense of humor. That sweater/duster looked hot. Didn't help that it draped all the way down to her ankles. Yeah, I saw that too. I think Issa and Lawrence are getting back together, whether it's just a fling or a real relationship. It doesn't help that they keep seeing each other, and they both know Condola.
  14. Same. I hate that she's acting this way around Taurean, but I get why she's doing it. I hope they don't go the romantic route. Last week, Molly told Issa that she was dumping Andrew since he was seeing other people. Not surprising, Molly always calls it quits when she notices the first flaw. But this week, she immediately apologized when Andrew called when she was out hiking. Although she wasn't wrong in what she wanted from Andrew (just the way she expressed it) it shows that Molly is learning from her mistakes. She's got her own issues and now she's willing to hear people out, something she didn't do before.
  15. I don't think so. The last we saw/heard of Dro and Candice was at Tiffany's baby shower. Issa did say that she knew the previous season was unfinished, so I'm expecting to see Dro again. It would be interesting if Candice knew about Dro and Molly, especially since Candice is supposed to be pregnant.
