Queerest Things - Burden of Truth season 3

On this chapter of The Queerest Things I Watched Last Week, Imani shares a story from her past on The Chi and I let y’all know what Luna’s been up to after binging Burden of Truth season 3.

Burden of Truth – Season 3 [Binge-Watch]

I finally sat down to watch Burden of Truth season 3. I like the show, but the last season was a little boring so I wasn’t anxiously awaiting its return. Once again an evil corporation targets innocent people with devastating consequences causing super lawyer Joanna to fight the good fight in her small home town. It’s pretty much the same story as the first two seasons, but this time it was better. Molly is out of the picture, Luna is older and she is working for Joanna doing lawyer stuff. Before I knew it, I couldn’t stop hitting “Next” at the end of each episode.

Luna starts working alongside Kat, a young associate at Joanna’s law firm. From the first minute I saw those two together I thought were going to be a thing. They had good chemistry and were spending a lot of screentime together. Finally at the end of Episode 5 “Crisis of Faith” Luna and Kat kiss in a hot tub.

I’m not sure what Kat meant by “she won’t care until I let you down.” Like, was Kat planning on letting her down? Is that what she does in every relationship?

I was so prepared for a forbidden workplace romance with sneaking around and making out in supply closets, but it didn’t happen. Luna and Kat were completely dropped after that kiss and they barely worked together any more.

At the end of the finale episode, we have an 8 month time jump, and during a montage of Joanna talking to her soon-to-be-born baby, we see Luna at Law School cruising a girl.

Okay, well, that summarizes Luna’s season three romance.

I still enjoyed Burden of Truth season 3 and I like seeing Luna become a grown-up. No decision has been made on a 4th season yet, but I’ll keep an eye out.

The Chi – Season 3 Episode 5 “Terror Town” [Live]

I am really enjoying this season of The Chi. I’m happy the moms have a bigger role and I am absolutely in love with Imani and Trig. However, I HATE the Keisha storyline. I am mad at the show for making us watch her be held captive and tortured. And when she finally breaks out of her kidnapper’s house during the blackout, why did they have her fall on the ground to be caught again? She’s a track star, she should have sprinted away to save herself! They ended the episode without giving away the outcome, so maybe she will get away next week.

Now that I have aired my grievances, back to the queer report.

Trig has been trying to gain custody of his little brother Jake and the first social worker home visit didn’t go too well. Trig lost his temper, there’s an electrical outlet hanging out of the wall and Imani needs to get a proper license for the barber business she’s been running out of their apartment. These things can be fixed, but later when Trig comes home, Imani is packing her things and says she’s going back to Kankakee. She doesn’t want her past to hurt Trig’s chances of getting custody of Jake. Trig doesn’t know what she’s talking about so she confesses to an incident from her past.

Imani’s story was heartbreaking, but I love how Trig is there to love and support her.

I think it’s rare for television to depict true sincere love, but The Chi nails it with these two.

I really really hope Keisha beats up her kidnapper and gets away next week. I’m going to be upset if she is recaptured and tortured for more episodes.

This week: It’s my birthday week (the big 5-0) so I am going to take the week off. See y’all in 2 weeks!
