OK, here’s the thing. If Nova and Remy were going to hook up, let them hook up. Remy and Charley never consummated their relationship, and sisters fall in love with their sister’s rejected suitors all the time. And, after a period of adjustment, everyone usually moves on. What was the point of five episodes of sighs and googly eyes, and apologies/explanations from both Remy and Nova if nothing was really going to happen?

Shows like Power and Being Mary Jane are vastly different shows than Queen Sugar, of course. But what they have in common was allowing their characters to be fully realized and that sometimes means they are going to do things viewers find off-putting. But as long as it true to that character as established, it makes sense and more than that, its compelling TV.

Micah’s social justice awakening fits him given his father’s betrayals and his own arrest. But it will be interesting to see what happens when 1. Charley finds out he was involved and 2. Ant’s (Myles Truitt) arrest settles in with the rest of the group. Will anyone confess they, too were there, or will they let Ant be the fall guy? I must say Keke’s (Tanyell Waivers) response to this whole thing was right on. Keke’s like ‘I’m tryna go to college and your faux woke act ain’t stopping it.’ I’m glad Queen Sugar acknowledges that there’s more than one way to contribute to your community and more than one mindset about what being conscious consists of.

That’s it for this week. What did you think of the episode?
