Hit the Floor 3×3 Review: Fake Out
In this week’s episode of Hit the Floor ‘Fake Out’, Jude and Zero hooked up, Ahsha came back to the Devil Girls, and Jelena and Terrence went public as a power couple.
The Derek/Ahsha/German love triangle in Hit the Floor is only going to get worse. German warned Ahsha about falling in love with Derek, and even though she said she loved German, Derek clearly isn’t backing down from her. He’s in love (obsessed?) with Ahsha and he’ll do anything in his power to get her back. Right now she’s stuck between a man who’s obsessed with her and a man who’s a murderer. Either those two are going to kill each other or they’ll end up harming Ahsha in the process. I wasn’t expecting Lionel to be so straightforward when Derek asked her to bring back Ahsha. She blatantly told Ahsha that it was Derek who wanted her back not her. Lionel is one cut-throat boss and I love it!
Lionel also pitted herself against Jelena (Logan Browning) by making Ahsha co-choreographer. With Jelena and Terrence already planning to buy the Devils, this move won’t be taken lightly. Almost everyone is against Lionel at this point, even Oscar, but I know Lionel won’t be going down without a good fight. While Jelena and Terrence went public with their engagement and came out as a power couple, Lionel also made a move by cutting Oscar’s ties to the Devils.
Stuck in all of this drama is Jude (Brent Antonello). His father disowned him back in the season two because of his sexuality, but now wanting to get back in the game he asked to meet Jude. They both shared a powerful scene together where Jude outright refused to help Oscar unless he accepted him for who he was. I was glad Jude was able to stand up in front of his father, what I wasn’t glad about was his inability to do the same with Zero (Adam Senn).
Remember when I said screens will explode if they touched? Well, those two did more than just touch this week; they had sex, with clothes flying everywhere! It was too much for my fanboy heart. I have to applaud writer James LaRosa. He didn’t shy away from showing the intimacy onscreen. Whether you enjoy Hit the Floor or not, you can’t deny the fact that it delivers on the queer content. However, things took a turn for the worst when Zero still kept Jude a secret after their sexual encounter. Jude looked more disappointed in himself than in Zero. He knew that Zero was the only person who made him feel normal but he didn’t want their relationship to stay in the closet either. Jude asked Zero to stay away from him but we all know that’s not going to happen. Zero loves Jude and staying away from him is something Zero is incapable of doing. Those two need to work out their differences and fast.
I think Jude walking out on Zero also played a role in him going up on stage and deciding to reveal Jelena and Terrence’s plan to buy the Devils. His little move proved to the new power couple that he wasn’t to be taken lightly, and they had to agree to his terms. I’m surprised that Zero hasn’t mentioned anything to Jude about how the Devils are in the process of being taken away from the Kinkades. You’re a bad husband, Zero! A bad husband!
In other news, Sloane escaped from her kidnapper because she is Sloane! And you don’t mess with her even if you are Oscar Kinkade. Kyle helped Raquel deal with her heart condition, and told her to fight it. She also met the producer of her film, and I have a feeling that it isn’t going to flop as they are hoping it would.
Quote of the Week: “You’re the most screwed up person I’ve ever met and the only one who makes me feel normal” – Jude to Zero.
