For all the “HawthoRNe” fans out there, last night’s episode took no time jumping into the good stuff. The show started pretty and serene as a pregnant Christina walked down the aisle to her future husband, Tom (played by Michael Vartan). But the joyous occasion comes to a complete halt when a medical emergency interrupts the blissful day.
Christina and Tom part ways temporarily. Later Christina is talking to Tom on the phone as she’s walking through a dark parking lot. (You already know this is not a good look.) She’s brutally attacked and then rushed to the hospital where she eventually loses the baby.
To add insult to injury her friend, Candy has just given birth to a baby girl. (Candy names the baby Hope Christina Sullivan.)
Whew! That is a lot right?!? Definitely a way to grab people’s attention for the premiere.
This was more than enough to get some people talking this morning; but others were focused on an entirely different issue. While the show was riddled with drama, some are stuck on Christina’s groom, Tom.
Wondering why he’s not black.
Ladies and gentlemen of Madame Noire what do you think about Christina dating, marrying and having a child with a white man? Does it make you appreciate the show any less? Did TNT miss out on an opportunity to portray a successful black couple in love? Let us know what you think.
