    I’m running out of patience for this show. So next week Ryan fires everybody again after making them think everything was good. And at some point I’m sure he’ll rehire Lily because she can do no wrong in his book. Honestly f-ck this show.

    You can tell the producers and Ryan are riding hard for Lily. I’m so disgusted. They have really made her out to be the victim.

      Yep. That whole art scene was cringeworthy. They clearly want us to side with Lily and feel sorry for her even though she still isn’t apologetic about using the N word.

    Who cares if Charmaine has a personal vendetta against Lily? Lily has had a personal vendetta against Jr. and his girlfriend for the last two seasons. She even lied and accused Junior of hitting a woman. But I guess that’s okay because she’s not a black woman right? Ryan is so problematic man. If a black person doesn’t want to be called the n word by a Mexican, that’s our right!

    I can see Ryan is going to do some dumb sh-t on the next episode. He’s going to fire all of them again. He’s saying they do nothing but fight, but conveniently forgets that he fights too. And honestly, the main sh-t starters are Lily, Jr and Bella. I bet they will be at the new shop working though. He clearly never forgave Don, Van, Charmaine and Danielle for the Kat sh-t. It’s such bullish-t.

    Let me get this straight. Lily is out here getting drunk and calling black people the N word but she’s crying like she’s the victim? And black people are on social media defending her? Wow. I’ll be glad when this season ends.

    I’m really over Ryan. For him to basically agree with Lily and tell her she didn’t really do anything wrong is awful. Then he keeps begging Lily to come back to the shop but made Charmaine beg him for a second chance. Lily isn’t even the best tattoo artist in the shop. She causes the most problems but let her tell it she is the most mistreated.

    I’m ready for the NY crew. Ryan literally has the same storyline every season now. Fire and rehire. Boring!

    This episode made me mad. They are really making Charmaine out to be the jealous and angry black woman. But I’d love to know what Charmaine needs to be jealous of? Unlike Lily, Charmaine actually has another career outside of the show. She’s in a healthy relationship. Comes from a great family and had a great upbringing. And she doesn’t have to fight on the show for her spot on the show to remain secure. Meanwhile, Lily is jealous of Charmaine. And calls her a white girl because she wishes she had the upbringing Charmaine did. She also can’t stand that most of the cast has Charmaine’s back except Ryan. And I don’t think Ryan is even black. So there’s that.
