Being Mary Jane- “Blindsided”

Mary Jane begins the episode with a peace offering as she tries to make up with her niece. They end up in a deep conversation about her unborn daughter. Neicey reveals she got pregnant on purpose, and does not feel beautiful, but her daughter will be because she will be half-Filipino. She agrees to stay the night with Neicey. They go through her baby gifts and watch her young son together. The next morning, Neicey says she has a dream about her daughter and jokes about naming her “Dontaesha.” Helen asks MJ for a ride to her doctor’s appointment just before Patrick arrives to tell her. He gives her a “Life Alert” necklace to make her feel safe. She harshly admonishes for him, while MJ and PJ laugh at him.

Later, MJ arrives at work to find out Terrance has committed suicide. MJ confronts the woman responsible for revealing Terrance as a fraud. She defends her position and fires back about his culpable dealings. Later the heads of SNC meet with her to try and figure out to deal with a pending lawsuit from Terrance’s family who blame her and the network for his death. MJ is ordered to remain silent about all matter concerning him, believing the hype around his death will blow over in a week.

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, where it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -Michael Jonvier
