The Game 5.08 Review: Familiar Territory

After a brutal confrontation in Roger Keith's office in the last episode, you would think that The Game returned with some sort of inkling to what happened after Keith decimated Derwin and Malik's plans of overthrowing new kid Kwan (Charles Michael Davis). Instead, not only as that plot thread given a rest this week, but the writers decided to revisit some familiar territory that would have been relevant three to four years ago. Of course I'm talking about none other than the possible renewal of the Melanie-Derwin-Janay love triangle. However before we get to that trip down memory lane, let's get back track on how we got there in the first place.

Tasha was still holding a grudge towards Melanie, which was the only plot thread left over from the last episode. This fact drew Melanie to desperately search for some sort of friendship. Enter Janay, her mortal enemy. After finding out that Janay has a new man now, Melanie invited Janay and Janay's new beau Noah to dinner with her and Derwin. While Derwin and Noah hit it off, Janay tells Melanie in secret that she and Noah are getting married, but doesn't want Derwin to know, because he might will have issues... which he shouldn't cause he's happily married to Melanie right?
