Love After Lockup: Life After Lockup is one of the most bizarre shows on TV. Even with all of the clear overproduction this season, it’s still a trainwreck you just can’t look away from.
Sarah & Michael & Megan
Michael hasn’t been out of jail a full day and Sarah is already tired of his lies. Just three hours after getting out of jail and going to lunch with Megan. Sarah is already reaming him a new asshole for not contacting her earlier. Sarah is done with Michael for the 1,324,999th time. Then she talks to him for another twenty minutes. Michael denies he has a girlfriend. Why do guys do that? He knows that she knows he was with Megan all day. Megan says she wants a divorce. I don’t believe her either.
After the phone call with Sarah, he calls Megan to come get him. It’s 5:30 pm and he doesn’t have to be home until 7pm. That is plenty of time for a booty call. On the ride to the hotel, Michael wants to know if she was faithful while he was in jail. Fidelity is important to Michael. I wish speech therapy was important to Michael. For the love of God can Megan just tell him she is pregnant? They have teased this on every episode.
Lizzie & Scott
Lizzie is making her prison recipe for macaroni and cheese. Because you can take the girl out of prison but you can’t take prison out of the girl. She also making this gross mess while sitting on her blue velvet living room couch. I wish the would stop showing the contents of that mixing bowl. Lizzie tells Jazmyne that she misses Scott. I had forgotten that they live in separate states. Jazmyne gives her mom an ultimatum. If she goes to visit Scott she is done with her. Lizzie promises not to go.
In the next scene Lizzie is packing her bags into the cute little car that Scott bought her and is headed to the airport.
Clint & Tracie
Why does Clint’s dad think it is a good idea to let Clint run meat through a saw? Why do all of the criminals tell everyone they were in prison within two minutes of meeting them? After an exhausting day of shopping, Tracie gets a ride to the bar and orders a tequila shot. She has a little more than a day left of her probation. I believe this is all manufactured drama for the show. I don’t think she will drink it. She’s a bad actress.
On the ride home from work, Clint’s dad calls him. He has convinced Clint’s mother to have lunch with Clint and Tracie the next day. Clint comes home to an empty house. It’s 11 pm. Tracie comes home at midnight. She looks like holy hell. And just as I thought, she didn’t drink.
Lamar & Andrea
Lamar arrives back to Andrea’s house to a chilly reception. Despite Andrea and her daughter making a home-cooked meal for Lamar, he insists on going out to eat. Lamar orders half the menu and loudly proclaims he just got out of prison. This of course embarrasses the teenagers. Nyla tells Lamar that he owes the family an apology. She says she is scared that the old Lamar is back. Tennison says he broke his trust. Lamar cannot even pronounce “family” let alone take part in one.
Marcelino & Brittany
Brittany goes to see an attorney to try and get some custody of he son. Marcelino wants 100% custody of Giovanni. That’s insane. It’s not his kid. The attorney advises Brittany not to associate with other criminals. This has been her plot line since she came on the show. She is worried that Tito will just come take her son since he has full custody. Other than all of that drama, these two actually seem happy together. The kids are adorable.
Wow. I didn’t know that Brittany had two other kids that were taken from her when she went to prison at age 18. Marcelino and Brittany disagree on what to do about custody of her son. While it seems as though Tito hasn’t seen his son in months, Marcelino wants to make the custody change official. Brittany is afraid a custody battle would anger Tito and she could lose him again. She wants to go for fifty-fifty custody.
Next time on Love After Lockup, will Megan finally tell her secret?
