'Black Monday' Season 2 Episode 7 Preview: Things go wild at TBD Halloween Party as Mo and Dawn get into tiff
In the promo, we also see Mo and Keith question each other. Both, after all, are snitches, the only difference is who they are reporting to
Season 2 of Showtime’s Wall Street dark comedy ‘Black Monday’ is about to return from its mid-season break and things already look exciting! Episode 7, titled ‘Who are you supposed to be?’ will take place in the aftermath of Dawn (Regina Hall) accepting the African-American Scholarship Fund from Marcus Duane Wainwright III (Dulé Hill), something Mo (Don Cheadle) did not approve of.
Before we get to Mo’s reasons, let’s take a look at what’s to come. As per the official synopsis of the episode on Showtime, at TBD’s Halloween party, Blair (Andrew Rannells) will try to make the trade of a lifetime, Mo and Dawn will argue over an opportunity, Tiff (Casey Wilson) and Corkie (June Diane Raphael) will loosen up, and Keith (Paul Scheer) will call a friend.
In the promo video for the episode, we see a lot playing out. For one, we get to see the neon-lit Halloween party where everyone seems to be on some form of intoxication. For another, we see some tense moments.
We hear Mo’s voice over the visuals of the party saying, “It’s all going down at the TBD Halloween party tonight.” It’s pretty obvious who Mo is talking to. It’s a figure from his past; Connie, played by Xosha Roquemore. Connie is an FBI agent who forces Mo to return to TDB so that he could be their snitch inside the company. The FBI is still on the hunt for the person who caused Black Monday and they know it’s either Dawn or Blair.
While Blair talks about his next big idea -- knowing Blair, it cannot be legal at all -- Mo warns Dawn, telling her, “Don’t let Blair drag you down.” It is obvious that while Mo is fulfilling his job as a snitch, he doesn’t want Dawn to get into trouble. He has no problem sacrificing Blair though.
At the party, we also see Blair and Congressman Roger Harris (Tuc Watkins) cozying up. The last we saw the Congressman, he was exiting a conversion therapy session forced by his famously homophobic father-in-law, Pastor Newell (Michael Hitchcock). It was then when Blair promised to finance his campaign, thereby freeing him from the clutches of the pastor. In that regard, the couple seems to be doing fine.
We also see Mo and Keith question each other. Both, after all, are snitches. The only difference is who they are reporting to. While Mo is the FBI snitch, Keith, as we last saw, was working for the Lehmans, who wanted to destroy Mo and everything related to him. The promo ends as things turn tense between Mo and Dawn. When Mo asks her to trust him, she shouts back, “Then do something trustworthy!”
From what the promo promises, ‘Black Monday’ Season 2 Episode 7 appears to be the most explosive one in the season so far, that is, discounting the bit where the bank massacre took place. And it cannot arrive soon enough.
New episodes of ‘Black Monday’ arrive every Sunday at 8 p.m. EST/PST only on Showtime.
