'For Life' Season 2 Episode 5 Spoilers: Will Aaron Wallace's choice to leave Marie tear his family apart?
Aaron Wallace has left his family to live out of his office. Will this decision change everything?
Aaron Wallace (Nicholas Pinnock) has not had the easiest time of things since returning home, despite having gotten everything he has been working towards for nine years. He may have been reunited with his family, but during his time in jail, there were things that Marie (Joy Bryant) did that he can't just get over - namely, the fact that she entered into a relationship with his best friend, Darius Johnson (Brandon J. Dirden). After a confrontation with Darius last episode, Aaron realizes that he's not yet able to forgive Marie, and he moved out of his home to live in his office.
In the Winter Finale for Season 2, Aaron's family is going to have to deal with the fallout of Aaron leaving - again. No one is more hurt than Aaron's daughter, Jasmine (Tyla Harris), who doesn't understand why Aaron would leave them after claiming to be working to get home to them during his time in jail. She's going to start spending more time elsewhere - Aaron's decision is already seeing his family start to drift apart. In the meanwhile, though, he's getting dangerously close to violating his parole, as he's left a stable home environment to live at his office, spending more and more time working with felons - something that his parole officer isn't going to be too happy about.
In fact, the promo for the next episode shows that Aaron under arrest for a violation of his parole - though whether that's for a serious charge or for a minor offence that can be smoothed out remains to be seen. In the meantime, Aaron and Henry Roswell (Timothy Busfield) will be tackling police corruption in a case, which is sure to put yet another targer on Aaron's back.
The official synopsis for this episode reads, "After Aaron and Roswell agree to help a young woman facing deportation for a minor crime, they realize her case could be a key to exposing a broad pattern of police corruption. Meanwhile, Jasmine begins to spend more time at Ronnie's house and Marie grapples with the first signs of an empty nest." You can watch a promo for the episode below:
