  • Tru's brother may or may not have killed his girlfriend's husband the first time around - this we will never know. What we do know is that she sets him up to do just that and Tru comes to the rescue.

    Here we go again with the plot that empowers women - Tru is strong - and devalues women - Harrison's girlfriend is a gold digger who would do anything for her husband's money.

    I'm a little offended by a plot where the woman is making up spousal abuse in order to set up a murder. She called the police about a domestic when her husband was out of time and self inflicts bruises. Wow, that's super nice for the millions of women abused by their husbands. What's more, this seems to be a recurring theme in this show - women are gold-diggers. Since, I imagine, with a female protagonist, this show aims to get female viewers, I think this was a real oversight that probably explains why the show wasn't so sucessful.
