This week’s BMF managed to resolve every story that was set at the start of the season while also making me intrigued for the next one.
But before I get to the big stories that were resolved, I have to bring up that Bryant’s son has ben arrested and will most likely be charged for murder. This is a rare occurrence in these days of television for young teenagers to be put in this situation. It is Detroit in the 1980’s so topic like these could not be ignored. I do believe that this could be a vehicle to add more for Detective Bryant’s plot progression for the third season. Especially since the gun was B-Mickie’s.
The emotional scene of the episode goes to Goldie as she had to cut her sister’s life support as her health was getting worse due to AIDS. Monique put on a great performance of good acting on this scene as it really stood out.
Also, it is over for Lucille and Charles as she is officially getting a divorce layer. It was sad to see this happen, knowing the context here as it was expanded from the BMF documentary that STARZ released a few months ago. Another thing that was sad is Meech banning B-Mickie from ever rejoining BMF ever again. I honestly could not blame him for this decision.
Meech is starting to humanize himself as he did not kill Lamar and wants to not kill anyone for the sake of doing it. Instead, Lamar’s punishing himself as he is getting deeper into his own crack addiction. Even with the going away party for Meech and Terry, their dangers followed them as Terry is shot and the episode ends on a cliffhanger.
Season 2 of BMF drastically improved from season one in every way regards to storytelling, plot progression, and a character driven narrative that kept me engaged the entire season. I cannot wait for season 3 of BMF!
