A new episode of Suspect aired tonight and it still has me hooked.
On this episode, Nev and iO take cases in Colorado and Texas and out of the two cases that they took on, I think I was most curious about the first one. Don’t get me wrong, I was curious about the outcome of both, but the first one shocked me the most because of the lies that were told to help keep the secret hidden.
The first case was set in Colorado and it involved a boyfriend and a girlfriend. Anthony called Nev and iO because he was worried about his girlfriend, Cassie. She had Lupus and even though she’d been in remission for some time, he was worried that it was back. To me, what she was hiding wasn’t that big of a deal. I mean, I still would’ve been upset that she lied and one of the stories that she made up threw me for a loop, but, at the same time, I thought that Anthony blew the situation out of proportion. He overreacted. He’s probably been wanted to break up with her for some time now, but he didn’t have a reason. Unfortunately, for her, this situation gave him the perfect out.
The second case was in Texas and this one was kind of funny. Not comedy funny, but funny in a way that I was so amazed at some of the details that it made me chuckle. It involved two sisters: Lebra and Tera. Tera called the show because she was worried about Lebra. She said that Lebra had been behaving weirdly, blowing through money and that a neighbor claimed that she was escorting out of their mother’s house. This one wasn’t bad. The outcome was kind of ordinary and I thought all the reactions were justified.
Overall, I liked this episode. Both cases had me wondering and guessing, so that’s good in my book. I tip my hat to Nev and iO because in situations like this, especially the ones that involve relationships, I wouldn’t want to get in the middle. I also find that giving advice to someone about their relationship can sometimes be taken the wrong way, which is why I rarely do it, but they were not afraid to and I like that.
They were both willing to help every one of their guests get past whatever it is that they were struggling with (good or bad) and that’s one of the reasons why I like this show so much. Plus, the little skits of them goofing off in between commercials are funny.
Anyways, can’t wait until next week’s episode.
Suspect airs on Wednesdays at 11 p.m. on MTV.
A Little Extra: If you don’t know, I am also an independent artist (a singer), so I can kinda understand why Lebra did what she did. I don’t think I would have done it in the same exact way, but I know how hard it is to make in the industry and I also know how quickly people will pass judgment on you for simply trying.
