Hit The Floor Creator James LaRosa On Pete And Sloane: They Did It All For The Nookie

OHMYGOD PETE AND SLOANE’S NOOKIE!!

Sorry, I’m letting it go.

But since we’re talking about Sloane, how iiiinteresting that after sex with Pete, she’s suddenly looking at that old picture of her in her uniform with a new glint in her eye. She recognizes that girl. And digging through her old dance stuff? And taking her first class?? Pete taps into a part of Sloane that she buried a long time ago. Do you think that’s a good thing or a bad thing? #philosophicalquestion #ohmygodthenookie!

Shout out to Laura Wright, who played the dance instructor. I loved her as Cassie on Guiding Light (she’s on General Hospital now, and killing it) and I was stoked she’d come and play on Hit The Floor. And she’s such a cool chick. It’d be great to have her back.

Meanwhile, how awkward was that Pete/Raquel scene in the Playground? After they kissed last week and immediately regretted it. Pete thought he’d have to let Raquel down gently and she beat him to it. Go on! They’re great as friends, and Pete needs all the friends he can get. Raquel needs all the pepper spray she can get with Jesse back. He sent her flowers, which Raquel hoped she could bring to his funeral. Alas, no such luck. Just when she thought he was out of her hair, she may have another thing coming… (SPOILER SHE HAS ANOTHER THING COMING)

HOW AMAZING WAS KYLE THIS WEEK?

And how effing smart? What I love about Kyle is she’s got all the trappings of the dumb blonde but she’s on par with Jelena in the smarts department. She had her entire escape plan charted out before she even made that sex tape (though it truly would’ve been whack if Akon leaked it). She knew the bylaws, she had the three-person panel scheduled and she had more dirt on them than Smoking Gun. Someone tweeted she should be working for Olivia Pope on Scandal. That is the highest compliment. And her scene as Holly Hobbie? (If you don’t know who Holly Hobbie is, Google image it now dammit.) Katherine Bailess can do comedy and she can really cry! Add her splits and she’s officially a witch.

Fun fact: I directed the scene where Kyle sells her tape for 80G’s. The entire episode was directed fantastically by superstar Melanie Mayron, but when we had to film a few extra scenes I pitched in.
