There’s this scene:
- Grace Greenleaf morphs into a vandal. Has this child lost her ever-loving mind? Or her ever bat swinging mind? Must be the case. Because why is she doing steak-outs at Uncle Mac’s apartment and watching him closer than a hawk in the sky?
- Kevin has a mother. And hallelujah! His backstory is unfolding! His mom pays a visit and brings her brand of drama to the Greenleaf dining table. She’s felt out the loop because Kevin kept putting her off when she wanted to know Charity’s due date. She eventually found out Kev had been living in a hotel. Kevin didn’t spell out why, but his mom seemed to grasp it quickly. “Oh,” she said. ”There it is.” There what is? What is this IT of which she speaks? Makes me wonder if she had an inkling he’s gay. If that’s the case, did she try to talk him out of it? Did she try to do what he’s trying to do to himself right now? Try to talk him out of being gay? Who knows. But I want to find out! Oh, and Ipecac syrup plays a role in this storyline.
- Zora has a thing for that Isaiah Hambrick singing dude. The same dude Sofia told her she’s crushing on. Apparently Zora’s crushing on him, now. The child’s phone is even blowing up with texts from this dude. She’s sitting with Sofia for lunch, and of course Sofia wants to know why her cousin is giggling like the schoolgirl she is. Poor Sophie. She isn’t happy her cousin is in good with Isaiah, but still takes one for the team and covers for Zora when the child sneaks away from a youth meeting to hang with Hambrick.
- Back to Grace. She’s still obsessing over Uncle Mac. Who wouldn’t? He raped her sister who committed suicide as a result. The man raped other girls and is STILL not in prison. Shooooot. Someone crazier than Grace might’ve done more than bust the windows out [of] his car.
- Kerissa may have met her match at throwing shade. Her name is Tasha Skanks, first lady of Triumph Church. To her credit, Tash was trying to be friendly and helpful to Kerissa. But K is a do-it-yourself kind of woman, and she rebuffed all Tasha’s efforts to help decorate the parsonage, shop for clothes, do girly-girl things. So she broke the news about Zora’s galavanting away from the youth meeting. She didn’t want to make it sound as if Kerissa can’t control her daughter, she said. Then she extended another offer (with a light dusting of shade) to help Kerissa keep an eye on her daughter.
