    Queen Sugar Season 7 Episode 1 Evaluate: And When Nice Souls Die


    The Bordelon household’s return for his or her last season wasn’t as a lot of a bang as was anticipated, however extra of a sluggish burn.


    One thing was lacking from Queen Sugar Season 7 Episode 1, or ought to we are saying, somebody.

    Daybreak-Lyen Gardner selected to not return as an everyday solid member this season, and her absence was felt throughout this premiere.


    Charley was such an integral a part of this sequence that merely having her identify talked about or her face present up on the telephone wasn’t ok. Queen Sugar might observe the Bordelon household, however Charley’s journey led viewers into this world.


    Charley struggled to really feel part of this household. Her willpower, intelligence, and love helped reserve it from the brink. And with Sam Landry once more attempting to destroy the household farm, it appears like they want her now greater than ever.


    However Charley and Davis are offscreen, as Charley selected to pursue her political profession in California, and none of that feels proper.


    I am certain Charley will do good work anyplace, however would not she have extra of an influence in a conservative, crimson state like Louisiana?

    However with the actress selecting to not return, I suppose there’s nothing extra to do than have this story go ahead with out her.


    And there is definitely no lack of expertise amongst the remainder of this solid.


    For the primary half of this premiere, it felt like they had been torturing us by calling Ralph Angel and Darla’s daughter all the pieces however her given identify.


    Tru Bordelon is the proper method for Ralph Angel to honor his mom and join this youngster along with her household historical past.


    Talking of Ralph Angel, he is attempting to tug collectively the co-op and dealing on the fish trawler to make ends meet.

    As Darla identified, maybe that is a superb factor. Ralph Angel does higher when he is too busy to make poor decisions.

    This is not the top. We start once more. Such as you did earlier than, and so they did earlier than us.

    And people very decisions are what handed the Bordelon farm over to Sam Landry. It is why Ralph Angel cannot even naked to drive by the farm now. It have to be all of the extra painful understanding that that is his fault.


    However he is making up for it by placing his coronary heart and soul into the black farmers’ co-op. As Mo identified, 80% of the folks farming in Louisiana are black and brown, however solely 3% are the house owners.


    It will likely be troublesome to vary that if these farmers default on their mortgages as a result of the debt reduction has stalled. It was a reduction to listen to Billie take that critically, however I haven’t got excessive hopes that they’re going to get the solutions they want from the financial institution.

    It seems Billie has settled into St. Jo’s, but when she would not decide up the telephone and speak to her ex, it will likely be no shock when he reveals up on her doorstep to disrupt her new life.


    Prosper requested Sandy on a date, and the truth that it took him six months to ask her has me waffling between whether or not I discover it candy or unhappy.

    Billie: You look good. Scorching date?
    Prosper: Oh, hush. Simply heading over to Sandy’s. She wants assist fixing her window.
    Billie: You could have fastened her complete home by now, Daddy.


    It was good to see that Micah and Isaiah are nonetheless pals and that there is no awkwardness with Isaiah sending Micah photos of the man he finds cute.


    However I’ve combined emotions about Micah’s run-in with Keke.

    Micah: Truthfully, I used to be simply stunned to see you.
    Keke: I do know. You regarded like a deer initially of searching season. You by no means appreciated surprises.


    Micah nonetheless comes throughout as insecure round Keke, and I want he did not. I additionally did not respect Keke pushing Micah to get excessive even after he instructed her he had an essential household perform to attend. That felt adolescent and disprespectful.


    I do not get pleasure from seeing Micah as a participant leaping from one mattress to the following, however I might additionally wish to see him develop up and transfer on from Keke. This appears like Micah being pulled backward as an alternative of shifting ahead.


    Lastly, we get to Nova.


    Nova and Dominic have been working collectively and courting for six months. So why is it I am nonetheless undecided about him?

    Nova and Dominic - Queen Sugar Season 7 Episode 1


    Relating to the long-term sustainability of this relationship, I believe Aunt Vi pulled on the proper thread. Nova described their relationship as “good,” with no drama. To which Vi replied, “If good is sufficient for you, then God bless.”

    Violet: What are you all gossiping about? Dominic? I wish to hear. Spill it. It has been six months. That is virtually a lifetime in Nova years.
    Nova: Hey, that is not truthful. I am not that unhealthy. I used to be with Calvin for nearly 5 years. I do know. 4 of these, he was nonetheless married. Nothing to inform. Dominic is nice.
    Violet: Nicely, we’re all glad. We like him, and we had been fearful. We did not wish to lose him. , you’ll be able to undergo males like water.
    Nova: The place is that this coming from? And I have never solely dated males.
    Violet: And we by no means meet the women.


    I believe everyone knows that “good” is not going to carry Nova’s consideration for lengthy. And the sparks had been positively flying when Nova met Mo.


    This leads me to one thing fascinating that Vi identified about Nova. She solely introduces the boys in her life to her household, not ladies.


    Does that hesitance imply she’s not solely comfy along with her bisexuality, or is it as a result of she would not consider her household will settle for her with a lady? I am hoping that is explored extra in-depth throughout this last season.

    Nova Listens to Ralph Angel - Queen Sugar Season 6 Episode 7


    However Nova has much more vital challenges than her love life. She’s being provided near $1 million to show Blessings and Blood right into a film.


    That a lot cash could possibly be life-changing. Sadly, that e book prompted nothing however ache for her household. It reopened previous wounds and unearthed buried traumas.


    A film would attain a good wider viewers and produce extra consideration to the Bordelons. It is exhausting to see how any good will come of it, but how many people may flip down that form of cash?


    Lastly, we discovered that every one of Nova’s good work in researching the dwelling ancestors of the bloodbath was being turned towards her household. The one upside of Sam Landry’s go to was that he did not have Parker in tow. If Charley is not there to maintain Parker in examine, I see no purpose for the character to return.


    Sam, and the secrets and techniques he and Violet nonetheless share, are greater than sufficient to pique my curiosity and add loads of intrigue.

    Violet: Sam, you are certain you wish to go down this path? the place it leads.
    Sam: You did not depart us any alternative, Vi.
