'For Life' Season 2 Episode 4 Preview: Aaron Wallace finally confronts Darius for sleeping with his wife
The synopsis for this episode reads: 'As a favor to Jamal, Aaron defends a man in a witness tampering case, while tensions rise at home in the run-up to the Wallace family Thanksgiving'
Letting go of the past is the hardest part of moving on, and for a man like Aaron Wallace (Nicholas Pinnock) it's harder than most. Step by step, and case by case he's moving forward into his new life as an exonerated lawyer, but there's still a lot from his past that he has to deal with. As Thanksgiving looms, Aaron is going to have to pay closer attention to his family at home - and that means, inevitably, dealing with the fact that while he was in jail his wife Marie (Joy Bryant) slept with the man he once thought of as a friend.
Darius Johnson (Brandon J Dirden) was in quite a serious relationship with Marie, and was even sleeping in Aaron's house for a while. Though that relationship ended, and Aaron is on good terms with his wife, he still hasn't talked to Darius - nor has he had much of a conversation about the relationship with Marie herself. The promo for the next episode shows that Aaron finally has that talk with Darius, and it comes out that it's not just the fact that Darius slept with Marie that wrecked Aaron. The fact that Darius wrote Aaron off, believing him to be guilty of the crimes he was wrongly accused of, hurt Aaron just as much. Darius and Aaron may never be friends again in the way they once were, but this is a conversation that Aaron very much needs to have.
In the meantime, Aaron is meeting his parents for the the first time in nine years as a free man. The promo shows that, while his mother is in joyful tears over Aaron's release, Aaron himself confesses to feeling nothing upon seeing her. Tensions apparently rise during the Wallace family Thanksgiving, and the Wallace family has a lot more to argue about than the typical Thanksgiving family meal involves.
The synopsis for this episode, 'Time to Move Forward', reads: "As a favor to Jamal, Aaron defends a man in a witness tampering case, while tensions rise at home in the run-up to the Wallace family Thanksgiving." You can watch a promo for the episode below:
