Due to yours truly traveling down to Miami for American Black Film Festival, we missed a recap week. So this week, we’ll recap Eps. 4 and 5.
In last week’s Episode Four, officially titled “No Haven In My Shadow” Darla (Bianca Lawson) returns. And we’ve finally found a way to age the 39-year-old beauty – put her in a godawful lacefront wig. We’re wondering if Queen Sugar changed hairdressers from last year because even Nova (Rutina Wesley)’s locs seem off this year.
But OK, back to the story. Darla is in St. Josephine’s for good, though it’s unclear how she’s maintaining herself. Maybe her parents are helping out. She’s come far from the timid, guilt-ridden woman we first met. She wants time with Blue (Ethan Hutchinson) and she doesn’t feel like she needs to beg Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe) for it. Fair point.
