Things are getting really crazy for all the couples on Love After Lockup couples this week. Between Megan arriving in town uninvited (Michael got arrested) and Scott going completely bankrupt (Lizzie spent $2,000), this is bound to be a drama-filled episode!
Lizzie & Scott
One whole week after being released, Lizzie misses her prison friends. So she has planned a shopping trip with her friend Mel, who was released on week before her. Of course she plans to use Scott’s credit cards to fund both of their purchases at a small boutique. Let’s see how that goes. Lizzie piles $2,000 worth of clothes on the counter. It was not declined! How is that possible that Lizzie spent $2,000? Also, if I spent that much money at once, my credit card company would call to be sure it is me. That may be a setting I chose though. I am immediately emailed for all purchases over an amount I set as well.
When Lizzie gets back to the hotel, Jazmyne tells her that it is not right that Lizzie spent $2,000 of Scott’s money on clothes. She needs money for an apartment. Jazmyne calls her mom a greedy bitch. Speaking of Jazmyne, she is all over Instagram loving her fifteen minutes of fame. She recently went off on a rant about Scott cheating on her mom. That seems rather unlikely. Scott says that someone stole his iPhone and he has a new cheaper phone and the person who stole it is stalking him and posting as him from his phone. It sounds like these two lovebirds are still together but living separately?
Caitlin & Matt
Caitlin is still grieving over the loss of her mother. We saw their last meeting a few episodes back. Matt’s mom reminds us that Matt has never had a girlfriend. Matt was a comfort to her for the first day or two but since then he has not kept up the support. She’s a bit snappy with Matt. He seems to be trying. But, he does have an attitude about helping out.
I’m not going to watch/recap anyone grieving their mother at a funeral home.
Tracie & Clint
Tracie is in jail for the second time since she got out of prison. Clint is driving God knows how far to get to the jail she is currently residing in. Apparently, his mother has assigned his cousin Brady to go with him and make sure he doesn’t do anything stupid. Brady looks less than thrilled with his assignment. When Brady asks how long Tracie will be in jail for, Clint says that the best case scenario is a year or ten months and the worst case scenario is twenty years. Well, that’s a nice wide range. Is he sure a lawyer told him that? Also, what the hell was she charged with? Clint is paying for her legal fees.
After a long ride, the two guys arrive at the jail Clint gets a phone call from Tracie’s lawyer telling him that she cannot have visitors. Clint has a hissy fit and throws his phone several feet over and over. He screams his undying love for Tracie across the remote Texas road. The only thin missing from the scene was a tumble weed.
Brittany & Marcelino
Brittany is practicing her audience participation for a cabaret performance by LuAnn de Lesseps. She is yelling, Jovani! Jovani! like she is Dorinda Medley. Or not. Actually, her kid’s name is Jovani and it is her first overnight visit with him since getting out of prison. Apparently, production fronted them enough cash to get them into an apartment that will allow felons to live there and rented some living room furniture for filming.
She tells Marcellino she’s pregnant. His reaction is very indifferent at first. Then he tells production he is ecstatic. There is really no distinguishing ecstatic Michael and mildly indifferent Michael. I think they are all stoned Michael.
Megan & Michael
Michael has just picked Megan up from the airport. She’s staying at a hotel. She is also hoping for a more official proposal. Last week, his mama told him that the side piece has got to go. In the airport parking lot, Michael dramatically, says”I’ve got to tell you something. The music turns dramatic, and he says, “I have to see my P.O. by six.” I wonder when he ever has time to go to check in with his parole officer for real since this is his favorite excuse to leave one girl to get to the other one. We get a chyron that says he has one hour to be at his parole officer. Is he telling the truth this time?
Then, they get lost. Really lost. The producer finally stops him to tell him he is in the wrong city. He is 41 minutes away. His appointment is in thirty minutes. He starts speeding and running lights. Why not just go to the parole officer. Or call him?
He arrives 10 minutes late to the parole office. His P.O. is standing in the parking lot and sees him drive up with Megan. He has violated parole by being late and he is not licensed to drive on his parole. The police search his car and all of her belongings as well. So, Michael got arrested.
Later, we see Megan apparently outside her hotel room or somewhere. Then, we see Michael’s mama crying in the rain at the park over news of his arrest. I have so many questions? How did she find out? Why are they standing out in the rain? Was he supposed to come back to get his mom and his sister?
Megan Meets Michael’s Mama!
Production is so sloppy. Apparently, they put Megan up in the same hotel as Michael’s family. So Michael’s mama goes knocking on Megan’s door. Now how did she know Megan was there? How did she know her room number? Why did Megan open the door?
Michael’s mom tells Megan that he has been arrested and will be in jail for the next four months. Oh joy. Megan gives his mom a hug. Michael’s mom tells production she is not going to tell Sarah about Megan because it is not her business. Megan decides to enjoy her production paid hotel room for however many days they paid for it.
Sarah still has not told Michael she is pregnant. Every week they claim that Megan and Sarah are going to talk face to face. We have previews of it. But they never show it. They say next week is the finale. But this season has been such a hit they added several more episodes, so I am not sure if they will air them right away or if there will be a break.
Are you shocked that Michael got arrested and Lizzie spends $2,000 of Scott’s money at a time?
Next week,it looks like Matt goes back to jail next week. Scott liked his relationship better with Lizzie when she was in prison. Tracie might be breaking up with Clint from jail. Did mommy pay her to go away? Love After Lockup is by far the best reality show on TV right now.
