What I’m Watching: Black Monday (Mid-Season Premiere)

Black Monday: Season 2, Episode 7 “Who Are You Supposed to Be?” (B+)

I don’t think I expected to see a new episode of this show so soon after its second season was cut short by uncompleted post-production as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. It’s only been two and a half months since that time, and now this show is back for its remaining four episodes. It’s still a bit strange to see Mo on the sidelines, pleading with Dawn not to play an active role in the illegal move that Blair was about to make that would get him swept up right away by Connie. Realizing that he had no options left, Mo made a smart decision to trick the very gullible Keith into calling Larry up and getting him to do it instead, making Dawn a bundle of money in the process for doing the opposite. Connie’s onto Dawn anyway, and I’m eager to see just how uncomfortable their double date with Dawn and a clueless Marcus will be. It was a pleasure to see June Diane Raphael’s Corky again, and Tiff is definitely a good friend for her to have. I like that their layered proposal of “lady business” was repeatedly mistaken for a sexual advance by Tiff, and their impending partnership should certainly prove interesting. Connie is well aware of the fact that Keith is working for Larry, which might mean that whatever next move Larry makes with the new information that Keith overheard at the party could lead to him becoming the legal target rather than Dawn or Blair.
