If Loving You Is Wrong- “The Colombian”

Nothing is ever as it really seems. Husbands with vasectomies, churchgoing wives with boyfriends, and now cops and criminals collide when “The Colombian” takes a shot. The latest episode of Tyler Perry’s “If Loving You Is Wrong,” dished divine drama tonight. Alex and Randal’s relationship took somewhat of a psycho thriller twist when the latter begins to stalk Alex and Brad. He waits until Brad leaves to sneak into his backyard and tries to come onto Alex. She rebuffs his advances, causing him to realize she really does not want him around. He leaves and goes to see Brad, questioning him as to why they have not hung out that much lately. He tells him he is overloaded with work and feels stupid for mistreating Alex. He asks Randal what to do to make it up to her, but the latter tells him to let it roll over.

This episode was intense! My suspicions of Randal being crazy have rung true! His attraction to Alex has elevated to obsession and is now extending to Brad. He wants what they have–poor Marcie…Esperanza is FOOLISH, she is playing the victim instead of playing it safe. She should break things off with Julius ASAP and have Edward fired. Both are dangerous. I feel the most for Kelly, her relationship is not going to work. Travis is about games and his mother is the new wicked witch. I believe he is engaged to Callista and Kelly will soon find out.
