Basketball Wives: On and On and On and On...and On

Was it just me or did this week's Basketball Wives kinda sorta feel like a rerun?

I don't know if it's because we're just entering the home stretch of this season or if I may just be too into the thought of the spin-off, but we had yet another go-around with some plots that have been hanging over the heads of the Wives like messy guillotines ready to chop up a lacefront or two.
