It’s been a little over one month since Being Mary Jane the movie (aka the pilot episode) debuted on BET. The Mara Brock and Salim Akil drama performed extremely well, attracting a whopping 4 million viewers for its July 5th debut. Now, as promised, the network is gearing up for the premiere of the first full season of the show. BET recently released two trailers for the upcoming season and they both look pretty promising.
In one scene titled, “Lovers Quarrel,” Mary Jane gets into a heated argument with her married boyfriend, Andre Daniels, after he sees her photographed with another guy. Somehow, they end up arguing about the fact that he hasn’t told his son that he’s moving out. The emotional squabble ends with Mary Jane chasing behind him as he storms out of her house and speeds off in his car.
In another scene, the deterioration of the relationship between Mary and Andre is pretty evident. Seemingly upset about something else, she proceeds to argue with him about why he hasn’t fixed the light in her pool. Realizing that their problems are much deeper than a broken pool light, he dives into the pool– fully clothed— and fixes the light.
Gabrielle Union totally nailed this role.
