Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2,2 #BoredomInMotion

Jamal is going crazy because he has been off of work ever since they quit the other job together. Tasha is hating it because he is going overboard with the whole home improvement jobs.

Crystal like D-Train and a guy named Julian. Derrick aka D-Train is the guy with the tatts who thinks that Crystal’s writing is all important and inspiring. Julian, who Stacy and Charles think is perfect for her, is the clean collared guy who does more cultured thinks.  So after cooking dinner one night, Julian shows up to Crystal’s apartment unannounced. He eats from the same plate as her and even brings her flowers, but leaves shortly after because a friend has a flat tire. Suspect? But shortly after, Julian calls and invites Crystal to a VIP concert and she heads out.

Now Crystal invited Julian over to Charles and Stacy’s house to pick her up for the concert. She has to endure an intervention from Charles and Stacy about picking Julian while Tasha says she should have fun with D-Train. When the doorbell rings, she is expecting it to be Julian but SURPRISE, SURPRISE it is D-Train

Side Note: Something in my Spidey Sense is telling me that D-Train and Julian know each other and have set up Crystal….or something along that line. Or she will wind up with neither of them, but this is just my assumption.

So apparently Derrick got a text from Crystal that she accidentally sent to him. Shame, Shame, Shame. Wait… is Derrick is Cory Hardict…. Tia Mowry’s husband? Charles takes Derrick into the kitchen to distract him from Crystal’s dilemma when he discovers that he judged him too soon. Derrick is actually working at his father’s store to build up real world credit before he goes to college next year.  And in walks Julian ( played by the squinted eye Omarion). And before they can head out without Derrick seeing him in walks Derrick and calls Julian out on his foolishness. Julian is dating Derrick’s cousin, Tiffany, and even driving her car. So the flowers he bought for Crystal was from Tiffany because she works at a florist. And Derrick walks out on Crystal too.

And WE FINALLY GET TO SEE THE TWINS IN THE SAME SHOT!!!!!! I thought this day would never come. I would like to thank the academy, my mother, the parents, and the budgeting department. Now it makes sense!

Tasha talks Jamal into getting back into business with his law career. He obliges and agrees to take the right moves towards getting back out into the real world.

Charles, Crystal and Stacy are sitting still talking about Crystal’s dilemma when they receive a package from Kita. Dear Lord, is it wrong that I don’t miss her? The show really did get better.

The show ends with Crystal at a poetry show. The poem was TERRIBLE!!!! As a poet, they could have done better with those few lines. lol. In comes Derrick coming to support her. Crystal apologies to Derrick and Derrick says they should be friends and hang out until they can figure things out with less pressure.
