‘Sistas’ Season 2 Episode 3 Review: Relationship drama makes for a slow episode, Danni and Preston steal the show
Spoilers for 'Sistas' Season 2
The third episode titled 'It's All About Pacing' was a slow one compared to the premiere episode. Although, in hindsight, after all the intense drama, we needed a bit of a breather. The episode sees Karen Mott (Ebony Obsidian) yet again juggle her feelings with Zac (Devale Ellis) and now, Aaron Carter (Kevin A. Walton), the almost hilarious dilemma that is Preston Horace's (Trinity Whiteside) relationship with Daniella 'Danni' King (Mignon) and of course the drama that is Sabrina Hollins (Novi Brown) telling Andrea 'Andi' Barnes (KJ Smith) that Gary Marshall Borders (Chido Nwokocha) might be telling the truth. Mostly, though, as you can see, the episode centered on the ladies and their significant others.
The Season 2 premiere debuted with two intense episodes setting up a great foundation for the upcoming season. It would make sense that while Andi's, Sabrina's and Gary's involvement with the FBI does take center stage, we also see how Karen's and Danni's love life unfolds. One fan tweeted, "Not enough Danni & Preston tonight @tylerperry! #SistasBET #SistasOnBET." This was true, and a bit unfair, because Danni, besides being pushed aside by Andi and Sabrina, barely gets screen time. The plotline that circulates around Danni and Preston, has to be the cutest as of now, bringing much-needed laughter into the picture. The scene where Preston surprises her with flowers and dinner may have honestly stolen the spotlight in the entire one-hour episode. While Danni continues to hold her guards up a bit when it comes to Preston, we're hoping she loosens up and allows herself to be loved by the cowboy that fans have been rooting for a while now.
Besides that, there were other hilarious and dramatic scenes such as Zac almost getting killed by Fatime (Crystal Hayslett) while on his bike, and how she was about to drive him to the hotel that Aaron is staying at. Zac is head over heels in love with Karen, but after Aaron offered Karen to visit him at the hotel, she jumped on that pretty quick. We're also a bit shook, considering she shared a quick kiss with Zac during the premiere, not to mention, Zac had been stabbed because of Aaron's drama. To say in the least, Karen is a hot mess and seems to be going after Aaron, who very surely has a possessive nature. The man comes with too much drama and baggage, and Zac has cheated on her more than a few times, so we're hoping Karen just decides to focus on herself. But the way things are going, especially with Karen and Aaron's steamy kiss at the end of the episode, we think Karen is off in the wrong direction this season. That woman, in our opinion, just needs to hop on a plane and go on a vacation.
On another infuriating note, we find out that Sabrina thinks that Gary might be telling the truth when he says that his ex-wife is setting him up. To be fair, nothing that man does isn't shady, and so even if that's true, he comes with way too much baggage for Andi to be stepping back into a relationship with him. Andi, who is the center of attention since her home and office were raided since Gary's arrest, is getting on our nerve. With the number of times she's been lied to, she still runs back to Gary and now Sabrina is gassing up that fire. That, most of all, is really weird, considering Sabrina is trouble with the FBI because of Andi. While we thought Sabrina would call her out, it seemed as though she's got Andi to think that Gary might be innocent. Many fans, including us, feel that Andi should back off of Gary, simply because of the fact that he's scary, controlling, and a liar. He seems to drag her into situations that she doesn't need to be involved in. We're hoping that this season, Andi walks away from this trifling man, because their drama is being dragged out for way too long. That man needs to stay locked up.
'Sistas' Season 2 airs on Wednesdays on BET at 9 pm EST.
