11. The most cringe-worthy scene came with Aaliyah's love life. When she and R. Kelly break the news to her parents that they're married, we'd like to think the shouting match conversation IRL wasn't so Full House.

12. New characters come into the fold in the fourth quarter. Norfolk production team Missy Elliott (Chattrisse Dolabaille) and Timbaland (Izaak Smith) helm her second LP One in a Million. Hip-hop hot shot Damon Dash (Anthony Grant) falls in love with Aaliyah at the Hamptons party.
13. Aaliyah was tackling what Bey and Rihanna would eventually accomplish. Cashing checks from soundtracks for animated movies and bagging "mainstream" roles on the big screen were the side hustles Aaliyah pushed for. There was cause for pause to wonder what could have been after a family toast to her future roles in The Matrix sequels.
14. Wendy Williams made the right call in ditching the airplane crash for this film.
15. Aaliyah deserved much better. Without the blessings of the Haughtons or her closest collaborators, watching the film felt like trespassing. If this were Scandal, Kellz and Aaliyah's secret marriage was kept in a B6-13 file and seeing a re-imagined version of their relationship was finger-shoved-down-throat. But in the end, it accomplished what it set out to do: make us miss Baby Girl even more.
Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B airs Saturday, Nov. 15, at 8pm ET/PT on Lifetime.
