We hope there are brighter days forward for the Bordelons and their associates, however issues have been cloudy at greatest throughout Queen Sugar Season 6 Episode 2.
You’d assume issues could not get extra adversarial after having a white cop knock down an aged black volunteer, however Billie’s arrival managed to ratchet up the stress.
We do not know a lot about Billie, aside from she and her household reside in Chicago, and she or he didn’t make it again to St. Jo’s throughout Prosper’s final medical disaster.
The Bordelons have given the impression that Billie had all however deserted her father, however Billie says she begged Prosper to return to Chicago and be along with her and her household, however he refused.
In Billie’s protection, we have by no means heard her facet of the story, and even now, we solely have snippets of knowledge. To Billie, it may have felt as if Prosper was selecting the Bordelons over her.
What it comes right down to is that typically coping with household might be troublesome, and Violet wasn’t making it any simpler.
Nova: You’ve recognized Aunt Vi since we have been youngsters, Billie. You realize she solely needs what’s greatest for everybody, particularly Prosper.
Billie: No, she thinks she is aware of what’s greatest. Telling me what to do like I’m a toddler. She was at all times like that, in everyone’s enterprise. Not every part round right here revolves across the Bordelons.
Neither Billie nor Nova have been mistaken. Violet loves Prosper like household, however Billie is his household, and Vi continuously does not perceive that each one selections aren’t hers to make. Working example, she nonetheless hasn’t accepted that sending Blue to personal college was what was greatest for him.
However the curious level of this dialog was when Nova stated that Billie owed her. Owes her for what? No matter it was, Billie virtually instantly backed down and allowed the Bordelons to go to Prosper as soon as once more. And does this imply the debt is paid?
Much more fascinating was Billie’s dialog with Charley on the hospital. It informed us lots about Billie’s persona.
You realize, you and I, we’re very related. I sought order as soon as too. It was actually management that I wished. I assumed I may simply match my father into my schedule. I missed his final moments chasing one thing that wasn’t actual, energy and cash. I’ll by no means get that again. So, I hope you’re luckier than me, and in case you are, I hope that you simply hearken to him, love him, and respect him by letting others love him. Should you don’t, then you definately’re simply making an attempt to regulate him too, and us.
Charley [to Billie]
Billie was much less on edge with Charley, however then Charley took the time to ask how Billie was doing; that is one thing that not one of the different Bordelons had bothered to ask.
The issues between Billie and Prosper aren’t one-sided, as Prosper’s dialog with Ralph Angel confirmed he has loads of regrets on the subject of the connection along with his daughter.
Prosper: You gonna love your child lady higher than I liked mine ‘trigger you gonna present her you’re keen on her each single day.
Ralph Angel: It ain’t over ’til it’s over, Mr. Prosper. You continue to bought time.
To this point, I like Billie, and it appears like there’s loads of story to mine between her, Prosper, and the Bordelons. Ultimately, I hope she turns into an ally as an alternative of an enemy.
Going again to Aunt Vi for a second, what the hell is she doing?
I perceive her serving to an abused lady and her son, even paying for his or her motel room as ladies’s shelters are probably full and have excessive Covid transmission danger.
However why is she hiding this from Hollywood? It is mindless. I can not think about Hollywood would not perceive; he is an excellent man and is aware of Vi’s historical past. Heck, he’d probably supply to assist. So, why is Vi risking her marriage by sneaking round and mendacity?
Hollywood was damage when Vi did not make it for his interview, and he might have even suspected Violet wasn’t telling the entire reality. When he stated, “I assume I did not want my good luck appeal in spite of everything,” it was troublesome to inform if that was a casual remark or if it was meant to make a degree.
Over at Nova’s, her cellphone points have been freaking her out. After all, it may simply be a coincidence, or it may very well be somebody is listening in on her conversations. She could also be paranoid, however that does not imply nobody is watching. Nova is not mistaken to be fearful.
Nova was fast to speak in confidence to Dominic. He is a cultural anthropology professor from her alma mater, Tulane College, which appears like an ideal match for Nova. Nearly too good, which makes me surprise if he is too good to be true.
And we lastly bought a teeny, tiny trace of what occurred between her and Calvin when she informed Dominic, “I misplaced the person I really like so I may reside in my reality.”
However that also does not inform us what occurred to Calvin. Is he in jail? Did he make a deal and stroll free? As of but, it is a thriller.
One of the best second of the episode was Ralph Angel and Darla studying that they have been having a lady. Blue will likely be thrilled to have a child sister.
It was a second full of affection and but marred by the belief that Ralph Angel hid all of their monetary worries from Darla.
I do know he most likely thinks he is defending her, but when issues disintegrate and she or he finally ends up getting blindsided, that is far crueler. I worry Ralph Angel will cling to his pleasure, not ask anybody for assist, and Darla will not have the ability to have the child on the farm as a result of it should now not be theirs.
I simply hope that Darla’s need to have an at-home beginning works out with out incident. I do not assume I may stand it if one thing occurs to that child.
So what do you assume, Queen Sugar followers?
What does Billie owe Nova?
Was Vi overbearing on the hospital?
Was Billie mistaken to throw her out?
Will Charley’s previous with Davis come again to chunk her if she runs for Senate?
Are you content Ralph Angel and Darla are having a lady, and do you see issues forward?
And did Hollywood understand that Violet was mendacity to him?
