The pop-up made no sense at all. If she's such a good cook, she would know things have to be prepared in advance. Mac & Cheese, greens and ribs can be cooked well in advance. She could finish them to order. It would be one thing is she was making poached eggs. I sense the writers have never been in a restaurant kitchen. Also, why would she insult the owner of the space? Did she want them to get shut down before they start?
I am in no mood for Ronnie redemption 6000. The whole thing with the woman at the recycling center asking him to ask her out was creepy. He is homeless and scraping for money. She is only rubbing it in by playing that mess. Ugh.
I do care about them finding Keisha. There are important things that can be said about the lack of concern for a missing black girl. However, it seems so clunky and the conversations don't ring true. I don't doubt that there would be jerks at the meeting. But the way they expressed themselves was terrible. Even worse are the conversations between her moms or the thought that the entire community supports their relationship. Um, yeah, no. The big speech at the vigil for Keisha had no purpose other than to pull on our heartstrings.
Ronnie spotting the presumed evil-doer and chasing after him. No. Just no.
Normally I'm an ugh, kids, kind of person. For this show I really enjoy the kids. The adults are not working for me.
