I think I've decided that this season is SLOW. The first episode of the season was jam packed with catching us up on what had happened in their lives over the couple of years that had lapsed, but every episode thereafter has been a bit slow. Anyway, let's get to it…
Melanie tells Tasha that she is trying to get pregnant. (I was wondering if they were going to come back to this since her parents think she's already pregnant.)
Tasha is approached by a man in the bar who says he hopes he can get her drunk and the next scene they are running outside in their underwear and hop in his car. He tells her that this is on his bucket list and he’s dying.
He tells Tasha he has terminal cancer. He says that he wants to spend some of his last moments with her.
Derwin goes to Malik’s house to get him out of bed and to take him to practice. Derwin tells Malik that he heard that the owner wants to bring in a quarterback from San Francisco. Derwin says he and Malik built that team so they can’t let a new guy come in and get all the glory. He says that he set up a meeting for them with the owner.
Mel tells Tasha she is cursed and has bad luck with men when she finds out that the new man is dying. Tasha tells Mel to take it easy and everything will happen in its own time (re: the baby).
Malik meets with the owner and says what he did was wrong. Derwin says he wants a second chance for Malik. When it becomes clear that the owner is not trying to hear what they have to say, Malik says to trade him. The owner says no, but that he’s going to bring in the new guy and spend all his money on him and nurture him, like he did his wife, and Malik will sit on the bench and rot. (I mean, did they really expect this meeting to go well?)
After the meeting Malik gets angry with Derwin and says he never should have listened to Derwin and that Derwin only cares about himself.
Tasha has dinner with the guy and he surprises her with one of the items on her bucket list, dinner with Keith Sweat. Tasha decides to sleep with the man since they don’t know what tomorrow holds for him.
Derwin tells Mel he can’t carry Malik anymore. Derwin tells Mel he wants to make a team of little Derwins.
Derwin wakes up and find Mel sleeping on the bathroom floor with her feet propped up. She says she is trying to give his little guys an advantage. He lies on the floor with her.
Tasha finds the man gone and a note with a necklace saying he's sorry they never made it to India. (This left me quite confused. The whole episode I was thinking that he was lying to Tasha.)
Next week is the season finale and promises a jaw-dropping twist that no one saw coming. Any guesses?
