Wish List: 5 Things We Want to See on ‘The Game’ Season 5
Vixens, vixens! The Game is back for its fifth season tonight (Jan. 10), and we're anticipating a lot of drama and good laughs. We've been ride or die with this show since the beginning, and although we side-eyed most of the last season, we're banking on more character depth, better acting and exposing some of the cliffhangers. Sans Brittany Daniel this time around, the original cast--Tia Mowry Hardrict, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Pooch Hall, Coby Bell, Hosea Chanchez--is back with Brandy in tow! The singer will play Jason Pitts' new girlfriend. Interesting, right? Even the guest list is long for this upcoming stint: Selita Ebanks, NeNe Leakes, Tika Sumpter, Estelle, Loretta Devine, Star Jones and more!
Brandy and Jason Pitts dynamic.
These two are playing an interesting couple. While Jason is used to being the showy cheapskate, Brandy brings some sassy energy to the mix. Could she make Jason see his flaws? Will this be "the one" to take Pitts down the aisle again? Seeing the dynamic between the former Saber and his new wifey should make for a good story line.
Melanie Barnett-Davis style upgrade.
We love Tia Mowry, but her character was struggling with her style last season. The newlywed was seen in dowdy threads and makeup that wasn't always flattering. We get it; they want to make her more mature, but honestly, we like the old Melanie Barnett from seasons two and three! She was vivrant, trendy and stylish without overdosing on expensive fashion. Let's get back to that this season, okay?
Melanie and Tasha Mack make up.
Without Kelly, we need a female camaraderie. Sure, Melanie fired Tasha, but we need Ms. Mack to get over it. The smart-mouthed remarks will definitely make for a few good laughs, but the show needs some female unity in the mix. Can they just kiss and make up?
Reveal the abortion tale.
Remember last season's finale? Well, Melanie dropped an abortion bombed, and we're anxiously waiting to see whose baby it really was. Dr. Burnett was a rowdy (borderline promiscuous) chick in previous seasons, so there could be a lot more to this storyline than we think! Derwin better not let this go in the new season. Ah, how we love with the plot thickens!
First a groupie, then a wife. Lashontae has made it a long way on this show. Honestly, we like what she adds to the storyline. At first, she's just a ditzy woman leaning on some paychecks, but after putting Melanie in her place last season, we respect her. Not only is she no dummy, she'll bring style and that female cameraderie we're looking for...
Watch BET tonight (Jan. 10) at 10PM for the season premiere!
