  • Thelma and Reuben finally tie the knot in a ceremony attended by relatives and friends of First Community Church.

    Considering the long wait involved, this has to be one of the more satisfying episodes of 'Amen.' In some ways, the wedding scene is a repeat of the earlier, ill-fated version back at the beginning of the fourth season. Again, the deacon (Sherman Hemsley) brings Thelma (Anna Maria Horsford) up to the altar, and again, someone passes out-- this time, the minister-- and again, the wedding is stalled. But Thelma and Reuben do finally marry, with Reuben performing the ceremony, no less! It is a rather inspired, if not far-fetched, plot device. What makes the episode truly extraordinary, however, is the deacon's surprise for the wedded couple: a group of children drummers and dancers perform at the church and lead the congregation out to the reception. Moments like these make 'Amen' a treasure to be cherished. The show, at its best, is a successful combination of humor, spirituality and artistry.moreless
