Last week proved to be an episode where hidden lies have finally crept out of the darkness!
Jim showed that he really is someone who pursues revenge like no one else! I mean Veronica and Candace are other contenders for the coldest character in the series (especially since Veronica is the Ice Queen), but Jim…
It is one thing to get even with someone, but to humiliate them by crushing their emotions is just on another level!
True, Celine did embarrass Jim in front of the entire country on national television during his announcement that he was running for governor. However, Jim tore her heart to pieces!
At first glance, it would seem that Celine did Jim worse than he did her. From my perspective, I think it was the other way around.
Remember that Jim never really wanted to run for governor to begin with. During Season 1, he told Candace and David that he was willing to just walk away from everything because it was just too much. Whether or not it was him being fed up with playing the façade that he had been living ever since he married Katheryn, or if he had hit a midlife crisis when he turned 50; Jim never really had the goal of being governor. If anything, it was something that was just forced upon him by other people’s expectations of him.
David wanted to run more than Jim, and the only reason he did not run was because the current governor told him that Georgia was not ready for an African American governor (in not so many words).
Even Katheryn says that it was a relief that Jim was not running because she did not want to go through all of the things to come with living in the governor’s mansion.
With that being said, Celine crushed Jim’s “dream” of running for governor and it led to him being publicly humiliated. However, you have to once again remember that it had been a few weeks that he was actually planning on running for governor.
Here is why I think that Jim hurt and embarrassed her even more than she did to him; Jim destroyed the heart of someone that had been pinning for him for just about 28 years!
Remember that their affair lasted practically as long as Jim had been married to Katheryn! After being dragged out of Katheryn’s house, left taking care of 2 kids by herself (with $270,000 a year from Jim) and being a maid of all jobs for the man who “fathered” her children; Celine was destroyed last week!
Jim comes over to her apartment and after all of the attempts of seducing him throughout Seasons 1 and 2 to have sex with her! After saying that he loved her and whatnot, he revealed that he NEVER loved her, he was never coming back and Celine was only going to receive a small amount of child support for that “little bastard!”
I must admit that it was a low blow to call his youngest son by Celine a little bastard because that IS his son whether he likes it or not!
It was Jim’s way of “getting even” with Celine for what she did to him on television, but Jim got the better of her (in my opinion).
His rejection and belittling of her was just the wake-up call that Celine needed after throwing herself at Jim for nearly 30 years! Almost 3 decades of thinking a man was in love with her was destroyed in less than 30 seconds!
She screams that the two of them are not even, and that has led some fans to believe that the man who ordered the bloodbath would be the one to be drowning in one himself…
The question now is whether or not Jim will be the one who is killed! Celine knows where his campaign office is, and of course knows where he lives.
Wouldn’t it be ironic if Jim is killed at his home like he was originally intended to?
What do I mean by that?
Remember when Amanda was playing her deadly game of Eenie, Meenie, Miny, Moe? Here was the breakdown of her game:
Eenie = Wyatt
Meenie = Katheryn
Miny = Amanda/unborn child
Moe = Jim
If Candace did not have Warlock’s crew kidnap Jim, he was most likely going to die that night by Amanda!
That is why I would find it ironic if Jim does get killed by Celine in his home because he avoided a bullet at the end of Season 2. However, I am not sure if the same can be said about the finale of Season 3…
Tyler Perry has set the stage for David vs. Jim to occur in Season 4, and that is if Veronica is harmed in anyway because David will instantly think Jim was the cause.
With that being said, I would not surprise me if Jim is not killed. However, I am curious as to how Celine plans to get even with Jim if she doesn’t kill him.
Jim told Katheryn that Celine had already fired her biggest bullet (that she had 2 sons by Jim), but she has been their maid for over 20 years. That means she has a lot of dirt on the Cryers, and she is not afraid to use it.
Who do you think got the better of the other; Celine or Jim? Will Celine kill Jim? How will she get even with him?
