  1. Ralph Angel made up for letting me down last week. I hope he doesn’t mess up Darla’s sobriety though.

    1. Man I’m worried too. I feel like her fall and her wearing that scarf on her head like that was foreshadowing.

  2. Me too I thought she did that just to bring everyone back together since those were her first words.

  3. I hate what happened to Micah. He didn’t deserve that and I hope Davis and Charley give that cop hell.
