It is already time for the finale of Married To Medicine Los Angeles! There were only eight episodes in season one and the ratings were mediocre. They did average about a million viewers an episode, so that could be enough for a second season. We’ll just have to wait to see what the suits say. Let’s get on with the final Married to Medicine Los Angeles recap of the season.
First, apologies for the lack of recap last week. I think Game of Thrones knocked this off my DVR and I didn’t notice. Also, they don’t seem to be rerunning these episodes so that’s a bad sign for a possible season two.
I’m struggling to get into this episode. It’s all about resolving issues that were set up in the previous episodes and tying it up in a nice little bow.
Imani’s storyarc ends with her meeting her sister. Imani meets Jasmine and her son Tyson. It was full of happy tears. You can tell Imani really wants to reunite with her father. Later, they come to Imani’s house so their boys can get to know each other.
Shanique is trying to portray the working supermom who does it all. The cameras on the other hand tell a slightly different story. Her husband would like for her to be the supermom. She wants to be a very busy career woman. It’s unclear how this will shakeout.
Robert and the kids make a big dinner for Shanique so that he can get back in her good graces after suggesting she quit her job.
Oh Asha, sweetie, it is great that you got a bit part on DOOL. This does not mean that you are going to be the next Denzel my dear. As we get older our goals and dreams need to shift a bit to more attainable expectations. I watch this show and it seems her scene was already on it and somehow I missed her one line. “Thank you so much for fighting for Salem.” Meanwhile she is trying to have a baby at “39.”
Britten claims she got a job in LA. I don’t believe her. I think she will be right back in Orlando the minutes the cameras leave. Oh, the job doesn’t start until next year. You know, when season two starts. If there is a season two. Meanwhile, she is going back to Orlando.
The Finale All Cast Party
Imani is hosting the finale party under the guise of some sort of black women in the medical community event. There is a “string quartet” with only three members.
Will Shanique and Asha put their differences aside tonight? Shanique is tired of apologizing to Asha. Asha is not willing to stop being the victim. So I suppose this resolution is unlikely.
Imani gives a speech about “seeing” everyone. I am annoyed that I immediately hear Nene Leaks shouting, “WE SEE EACH OTHA!” I don’t think that is quite the same meaning as tonight. Then, Imani and Asha give Britten a dog tag like the ones she gave all of them. Hers says “Switerland.” Because she is the one who is always trying to bring the ladies together. Britten says she is going back to Orlando for a year.
So what did y’all think of Married To Medicine Los Angeles? Do you want a season two?
