The season opens up with a shootout. The entire trailer park is scared and wants to know what is going on. Bonnie checks on her sisters, niece, nephew and then her mother to make sure they are safe. Mama may not be able to get out of bed, but she knew how to dodge those bullets. When she checks on her mother, she tells Bonnie those men was Secret Service. Bonnie doesn't think her mom knows what she is talking about.
The President didn't die after all. He is awake and can't remember what happened to him. The doctor tells him he had a heart attack. The President said that's not possible.
Valerie and Dax is ready to get back to DC. Valerie starts going on about them losing their jobs and the troubles they facing in DC. She blames Anna for everything. Dax asked Valerie what has gotten into her. Valerie has been angry and bitchy since learning Anna had an affair with the President. Dax asked her why is she so angry? Valerie begins to explain but Dax cuts her off. He doesn't want to hear the poor black girl story. Dax want to know what else is going on because it seems like it's more to Valerie anger. She claims she just mad at Anna. Hmmmm?? Valerie may be mad at Anna, but she is very attracted to Anna's ex, Brody. She can ask him to leave all she wants but Brody isn't going anywhere. Dax gets a call from the White House.
Dax takes the White House call in private. Come to find out, Dax has been helping First Lady Christian on whatever plan she has to destroy the President. The First Lady demands for Dax to get back to DC. Dax tries to explain he can't leave Victor. So quickly his mind was changed. The First Lady sends Dax pictures of Victor up to his old shenanigans. Victor has been sleeping with a Senator. Dax face showed his hurt and disappointment. After getting off the phone with First Lady, Dax makes a call to someone at the Immigration Office. He has some folks he want to deport. Will Victor be on that list?
First Lady question the President's doctor. The doctor is shock to know the First Lady knows he prescribed the President sexual stimulation pills. Even though he tries to say nothing, he gives in. She wants to know if the pills caused his heart attack. The First Lady dismissed the doctor then gives the sleeping President a slap across his face. She lets him know that she ran Anna out of the city. President Tom gets upset with her. Is it possible he has fallen for Anna? Boom, the bombshell drops. The omg moment of the episode was First Lady Christian admitting she replaced his sexual stimulation pills with something else. She tried to kill the President. WTH?
A woman pulls into the trailer park. She sees all the police and drives away. We get introduced to a new cast member Regina, who is complaining about the woman not talking to anyone. The sheriff continues to question the neighbors of the trailer park. He approaches Bonnie, Anna, Shelby and JB. He asked them all what is going on? JB said nothing even though Bonnie is egging him to tell the truth. Since JB refuse to tell the truth, Bonnie and Shelby speaks up. They both tell the sheriff JB had drugs in his truck, Shelby took the trunk and sold the drugs. Unbelievable how Rick, Shelby's boyfriend comes out of nowhere questioning Shelby about her lies and heroine. The sheriff is like I am standing right here. Lmao!!! The Secret Service killed the thug and his entourage in the van. However, no one knows that. JB had a flashback of seeing the guy when he went to see Anna, so now JB has something on Anna.
Crystle Stewart who plays Leslie on For Better or Worse is playing the role of Frankie. Frankie is the woman who drove away from the trailer park. Apparently she has some secrets of her own that she is running from. She shows up at Brody's house telling him about the sheriff and the drama at his trailer park. Brody tells her to stay there as he goes to check it out.
Victor is awake and sitting up when Dax comes back into the room. Dax asked Valerie to go get Victor some water. Once Valerie leaves, Victor express his appreciation of Dax. He tells him no loves him like he does. Victor isn't picking up on Dax strange behavior. Dax asked Victor does he love him as much as he love his parents. Before you know it, Dax phones rings. The call is for Victor. Victor is talking to his sister in Spanish. When he gets off the phone he tells Dax his mother has been deported. Victor had no understanding. And here is the second omg moment of the episode. Dax had Victor's mother deported. Victor put the pieces together seeing Dax not so caring reaction to his news. He shoes Victor the pictures of him cheating with the senator. Afterwards, he attack Victor by pushing his phone into Victor's wounds. Valerie and Dr. Alternatively comes running in to get Dax off of Victor. Valerie asked what is going on. Dax tells her Victor cheated on him. Dr.Allen who isn't in his right mind, calls Dax, JB. He say that can't be your man because he is a man. Dax tells Victor he has 24 hours before someone will be here to deport him. You can see the hurt in Victor's face. See what happens when you finally find love but can't shake your past.
Brody arrives at the trailer park and instantly hugs Anna. He asked her was she okay. She tells him he should be worried about Bonnie. Brody feels Bonnie is stronger then Anna. He knows Bonnie can handle whatever comes her way but Anna well I guess not. But does his concern for Anna prove Bonnie right? Does he still have feelings for Anna? Even though Brody is worried about everyone, he is torn between two sisters. After he finish his conversation with Anna, he has a conversation with Bonnie. Bonnie appears mad at Brody but once again tells him they can't be together. I think that hug she witness Brody give to Anna really got her in her feelings. Please Brody stop chasing Bonnie and I hope they don't put him back with Anna.
Shelby throws in Bonnie's face how Brody hugged Anna and not her. Bonnie kicks Shelby out. She is safe now so no need for her to spend the night. Anna runs into the bathroom throwing up. Bonnie tells her there is something under the sink for he stomach. Anna sees a pregnancy test under the sink and takes it. Looks like this season, we will be seeing more of the neighbors in the trailer park.
Tyler Perry has added some African Americans to the cast. I read he went through some backlash about this show but it was good without the added cast. Frankie sees Regina creeping over to the married neighbor house on the late night.
Anna and Bonnie finally talks about Bonnie's relationship with Brody. Bonnie denies she has feelings for Brody. She claims it was just fling nothing more. We an clearly see she is lying. Bonnie wants Brody.
Before Bonnie goes to bed, she tells Anna takes he car and go see Brody. Yep, Anna goes Brody. When Anna arrives at Brody's house, he thought it was Bonnie. When Anna gets out the car he is shocked to see her. He asked her what she is doing there. Anna ask Brody why he didn't tell her about him and Bonnie. Duh, he hasn't talked to you in 4 years. Yes he said that too. Brody admits the first time he saw her it felt like nothing didn't change. Before you know it, Anna ran to Brody and kissed him. Brody pushes Anna away and say they can't do this. She asked him why and said because of your sister. She finally sees it. Brody is in love with Bonnie. Out of nowhere, the Secret Service guy appears. He tells Anna she has a phone call. Omg, what is next to come for Anna.
