This episode opens with a reading of Ernest Bordelon’s will. Ralph Angel, Nova, Aunt Vi and Charley are present.
Aunt Vi gets the boat. The kids get the land, and Ernest wants them to farm it. Charley and Nova want no part of it. First order of business is to take care of business (i.e., sell the land) so Charley can return to her mess of a marriage in Los Angeles, and Nova can to back to her life in NOLA.
Ralph Angel gets upset because his sisters don’t want it. He’s looking at this inheritance as a chance to start fresh.
As the siblings tiff it out, Charley calls Sam Landry, who says he’ll make them an offer in person.
Vi didn’t purposely shut the door… she just didn’t expend the energy to leave it open for him.
Back at Vi’s house, Davis shows up. Vi ain’t feeling his tail, not even enough for the perfunctory response when Davis says “Hello.” She turns around, puts her watering can down and walks into the house. Davis follows her… and meets a screen door slam. Vi didn’t purposely shut the door… she just didn’t expend the energy to leave it open for him.
Inside, Hollywood offers Davis some coffee. Auntie Vi let everyone know all the coffee is gone… and the sweet tea. She kind of sounds like the cafeteria lady from Cedric The Entertainer’s short-lived sketch comedy show.
Charley walks into the room, basically seeps from her pores that she doesn’t want anything to do with the air that liar breathes.
