Last night’s second episode of Hit The Floor ended in just as much of a jaw-dropping, expletive-shouting, confused fashion as its series premiere. This is becoming a trend, y’all! Fortunately, we have the pleasure of turning to the show’s creator,James LaRosa, in moments of distress, or simply whenever we want an insider’s take on lines that make us laugh.
Read on for thoughts from the man behind the moves and manipulations of all of your newest TV friends.
(WARNING: Spoilers! As always, if you haven’t watched this week’s episode yet, run don’t walk. Then run back here. Then shimmy. Just cuz.)
OH NO SHE DIDN’T!
Jelena, WHAT? Telling a girl who her daddy is right before a big dance number, what would Miss Manners say about that?
“Your mother danced for him back in the day and now it’s your turn. It’s almost poetic.”
What a b–ch!
My favorite part is how she then runs out to the court tossing her compact to a security guard. Cuz that’s his job. To hold her compact. (No, seriously. It is.)
In Jelena’s defense… okay there is no defense. That was just funk. Ahsha‘s waited her whole life to dance out on the floor of Devils Arena, and now she’s left standing in the corridor with her world blown. Now what? Stay tuned. :)
People ask me why we let Ahsha in on The Secret so soon. We could’ve milked this for an entire season. Stolen looks, lingering glances, close calls. Here’s why: holding onto bombs is not how Hit The Floor works. WE DROP ‘EM! Jaws hit the floor around here.
This week’s episode started out happy, didn’t it? The new team of Devil Girls got together, got new uniforms, got photographed. UGH, until the most heartbreaking moment of the episode for me, when Raquel walked by the moment they were taking the team picture. The look on her face! She landed on her feet, which is great, scoring a job as the hostess of The Devils Playground. Baby daddy Jesse still managed to stink up her debut, but she got the last laugh. #JesseChampagneCrotch
Someone who wasn’t at the season kick-off party at the Playground: German. Ahsha couldn’t get him in, which gave Derek a chance to cop a knee feel. He redeemed himself by giving Ahsha a ticket to opening game for his oblivious rival. A thank you, no doubt, to Ahsha, who gave him a shoulder to lean on. We know what he really wants to lean on. Okay that doesn’t make sense but it sounds filthy so let’s just go with it.
Of course Derek had plenty of time to instigate Pete with his “I saw her first, Coach” comment. Sent Pete flying out to call Sloane and force her to come down to the arena. DRAMA. You can’t blame Pete for wanting to tell Ahsha. And he was clearly wound up to do it. Until Sloane said three little words that shut him down. “You owe me.” WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? Keep watching. PS, I absolutely loooooove Pete and Sloane. History is a powerful thing. And so is chemistry. And these two churn my butter in a big way. (More filth that really means nothing but sounds awful so I’m leaving it.)
