'Black Mafia Family' Episode 5: Will Detective Bryant clean up his act?
Starz returned with a fresh new episode of 'BMF' and it saw quite a few interesting developments. The crime drama which follows the lives of Meech (Demetrius Flenory Jr.) and Terry (Da'Vinchi) Flenory, as they climb the difficult ladder to being cocaine kingpins also gives a look into the working of an organization and its people.
For the 50 Boyz to function properly a mix of footsoldiers, cops, plugs and brains are needed. One such important spoke in the wheel is Detective Bryant (Steve Harris) of the Ecorse, Police Department. The corrupt cop receives cash in exchange for information and timely interventions when the Flenory brothers could be in trouble. Although quite obedient until now, the detective too is slowly losing patience and may very well stand up to Meech. Read on to know what went down with this interesting character on tonight's episode of 'BMF'.

'Black Mafia Family' Episode 3 Review: Meech shows he's a visionary with truck idea
Is Detective Bryant done playing the obedient dog?
Right from the beginning of the show, we have seen Detective Bryant protective of the Flenory brothers. One may assume they were due to having familial relations with them but nope, it's only because he is on their payroll. Episode 4 also saw Demetrius slap an envelope filled with cash onto his chest as he said, " You know you need me as much as I need you". So far in the series, we have seen the detective play informant and savior, to the boys with him also delivering rival gang members to them, but it seems like that's all about to change soon. As the investigation into Jay-Mo's(Holmes Lindsay IV) death heats up, Bryant realizes he may get caught as well. He's also lately been done with Meech's bull**** as the teen orders him about. Episode 5 "Secrets and Lies" saw him meet up with Meech and hand back the envelope of cash as he says he's done.
Now he may be done with Meech but is he done playing dirty completely? Or is this just a safety measure? Assuming that he does in fact want to clean up his act, things may not go his way as we see Detective Lopez (Sean Michael Gloria) who has been suspicious of Bryant right from the start spots him hand back the envelope. Oops! Bryant's cover may have been blown just as he's trying to rid himself of the double-agent business. Keep watching to find out if Detective Bryant just shot his own foot or if he'll manage to get clean.
'BMF' airs every Sunday at 8 pm ET on Starz.
