'House Of Payne' Season 9 Episode 10 Review: Is Calvin right to fear that Miranda is stalking him?
Malik thinks that Miranda is stalking Calvin because it is a little too convenient that Miranda met Laura; in fact, she could have possibly set it up
Calvin and Miranda are two names that are at the center of 'House Of Payne' right now. As you are aware, 'House Of Payne' stretches one scene for around 10 minutes before moving to the next, so a lot really cannot be covered in one episode, apart from their drama.
In Episode 9, Calvin brought a new girl home, Laura, to meet his parents. This culminated in an awkward run-in with his ex-wife Miranda. Laura learns about the relationship between Calvin and Miranda and decides to leave him. In Episode 10, a frustrated Calvin kicks Miranda out of the house, much to Ella's (Cassi Davis) disappointment. We'll move past the random jokes cracked by Curtis (LaVan Davis) because they're just that forgettable.
Anyway, a fuming Calvin goes down to CJ and Janine's house, where he vents. Of course, Malik (Doc Shaw) is present during these conversations and it's clear that he's turning into his Uncle Curtis and cracks similar jokes that almost prolong one conversation till kingdom come. They let slip that Miranda might just be stalking Calvin, a thought that seems to be nagging him. He thinks it is a little too convenient that Miranda met Laura, and she could have possibly set it up. Could she be petty and stop Calvin from moving on?
He is harrowed by the thought, but this show doesn't allow anyone to dwell on their emotions, so there's another forgettable conversation between him and CJ and then the episode abruptly ends without much warning. There are a few questions here. For starters, why is Malik annoying? Secondly, where is Jazmine (China Anne McClaine) because at least she brings much joy and relief to the scenes and still has a storyline that's worth addressing, unlike the Calvin-Miranda drama that doesn't seem to be going anywhere and is getting downright draggy.
It's almost at the point where you really don't care if Miranda and Calvin work out their issues because you want to see some other interesting topics being addressed on the show, like Malik's stripper girlfriend Lisa or Jazmine under pressure to have sex.
'House Of Payne' airs on BET at 8 pm.
