'Black Mafia Family' Episode 4: Kato proves to be a snitch, fans want her dead

'Black Mafia Family' introduced us to Demetrius Flenory (Demetrius Flenory Jr) and his brother Terry (Da'Vinchi) who from a young age have been working under their boss Pat (Wood Harris) and distributed cocaine for him. But as the boys grew, so did their ambitions, especially Meech's. Their group -- called the 50 Boyz -- named due to their coke baggies costing $50, was the start of their journey towards bigger things in life. From taking on more products to breaking away and operating separately from Pat, the two work towards their goal. A lot many things got in their ways like rival gang 12th Street Boys, the police, and more. But the biggest obstacle was Lamar (Eric Kofi-Abrefa) and the family. For mixing business with personal issues, they landed up in trouble with Lamar. In fact, their biggest reason behind starting the business, which was to get the family out of poverty, backfired. Lucille (Michole Briana White), Charles (Russell Hornsby), Nicole (Laila Pruitt), Lawanda (Sydney Mitchell) all felt the repercussions of the boys' business dealings. But they weren't stopping anytime soon, after all, Terry had just scored a new plug - Big L (Walnette Marie Santiago) who could be the next rung up the ladder.

What happened in the Season Finale of 'BMF'?

Episode 8 of 'BMF' saw situations escalate with many characters taking action. Kato (Ajiona Alexus) in an attempt to take down Lamar who she has been helping all this time was mercilessly killed by B-Mickie (Myles Truitt) after Meech found out about her disloyalty. Meech shot Lamar at the same time and left him to die. Detective Bryant (Steve Harris) has been more serious than ever after the death of Detective Lopez (Sean Michael Gloria) and is out to get Meech. He brings in B-Mickie after getting evidence of him killing Kato and another gang member and tries to make a deal with him. He asks for Meech in return for hashing the charges against B-Mickie. Meanwhile, in the most shocking blow to Meech, Terry calls it quits on working together with the intention of starting a family business with dad Charles for the happiness of his family. The finale ends with us being shown a much older Meech in prison narrating and looking back on what had happened.

The finale left us with a lot of questions. First, is Lamar actually dead? Unlike Kato, he was shot just once in the stomach and was last seen down on the floor and bleeding. But we know that the man has an incredible pain threshold and survival capabilities. His apparent death remains unconfirmed. Terry's exclusive dealing with Big L gave the 50 Boyz a major boost. But with his exit, the business may be negatively impacted. And lastly, B-Mickie's dilemma is an important question mark. Will he work for Detective Bryant and betray Meech to save his own skin or will he remain loyal? Only the next season will tell.
