Welcome to the last stop on the road to the season finale of Life After Lockup! Everyone’s lives are in total chaos, and the future is looking more bleak than ever. Amber is caught between her current fling Puppy and her drug dealer ex Sammy. There’s no way that’s going to have a happy ending. Another couple that’s bound to end in disaster is John & Kristianna. Once she finds out about him and her sister, she is likely going to relapse. It’s painful to watch.
We’ve watched Brittany Santiago struggle with her mother all season. She dragged her all the way to Alaska for some spiritual healing. Only time will tell if confronting her demons like that was the right choice to make. Sarah Simmons & Michael Simmons have ground a groove in their new open marriage. However, Michael’s gone radio silent. This modern arrangement might be over before it truly gets started.
The family lives of our Life After Lockup couples are more troubled than ever before. Puppy is in way over her head with this adoption debacle with Vince. He obviously secured the adoption using shady means, so she’s going to have to uncover the truth. Brittiany Santiago is also in a family struggle. Trying to get her mother on the road to recovery is proving to be harder than she thought. How many more triggering face offs can Cynthia take?
Whatever’s happening with Sarah Simmons & Michael Simmons is doomed to fail. It doesn’t make any sense. How many times do you want him to cheat before you learn? He will NEVER care about anyone more than himself. That includes their children. The weirdest family troubles on Life After Lockup belong to John & Kristianna. She’s getting out of prison and has no idea he’s been flirting with her sister. Ouch. That’s going to be a tough pill to swallow.
Things for our favorite Life After Lockup couples have officially reached a fever pitch. Amber and Puppy’s desire to con has really bit them this time. They’re stuck with Vince as her adopted father, and they can’t figure out how to get out of it. Right now, he is legally her father. It’s quite the predicament, but that’s not all Amber’s dealing with. Don’t forget she has a secret man in prison that her girlfriend is blissfully unaware of.
Speaking of people totally unaware, what are we going to do with Shawn? He cannot seem to accept that he and Destinie do not have a future. He was nothing more than a con job for her, but he won’t grasp that concept. Forget the money you have on the line. It might be time to just write that off as a personal loss, and get out of this relationship. How long do these two have left? Time is running out.
It’s all fun and games when someone first gets released from prison, but Life After Lockup is tough. The couples this season on Life After Lockup are exemplifying that more than ever before. Puppy expected the full fairytale with Amber when she got out of jail. However, it’s proving to be anything but. Amber is keeping a loaded secret from her, and Puppy’s already feeling neglected in the relationship. These two are DOA only a week into being together.
A main focus of this Life After Lockup season has been the saga between Shawn & Destinie. The monumental issue at the center of their relationship is the $50,000 he has on the line. Shawn’s left with a never ending high level of anxiety because his financial future is in jeopardy. This is the moment of truth. If Destinie chooses to skip court, Shawn loses the money. Their relationship (if there even is hope for one) will be defined by this moment. It’s do or die for this Life After Lockup couple.
High stakes are in play right now for so many Life After Lockup couples. Shawn’s still on the hook for $50,000 if Destinie doesn’t show up to court. She’s a known flight risk. She’s already packed her bags and ran from him. All of that together is not a good sign for his financial future. Also, Andrea Edwards & Lamar Jackson have faced many challenges in their marriage, but will forcing their daughter to keep secret be what finally tears them apart?
Scott Bradshaw clearly bit off more than he could chew with Lindsey Downs. She’s not sugar and spice by any means, and he’s learning that. The way she’s destroying all of his belongings is so childish and immature, and he is totally trapped. There’s nothing he can do to neutralize her right now. What can she possibly do to him next? I’m afraid we are about to find out, and it won’t be pretty.
This season of Life After Lockup is taking lies and deception to a whole new level. Shawn has learned the hard way not to trust anyone. Destinie’s on the run with his credit card and at risk of costing him $50,000. At what point do you realize you made a big mistake by trusting this woman? Let’s hope he can finally locate her and ensure she makes it to court on time. If not, this is going to be quite the costly blow to his family’s financial future.
However, nobody from this Life After Lockup season is full of more lies than the duo of Scott & Lindsey. She’s been planning on having her female lover live in their driveway, so they can fornicate behind his bad. If that wasn’t wild enough, Scott evidently has an affinity for prostitutes. Is that why he’s so broke? None of his claims about being wealthy are true whatsoever. In fact, he’s drowning in debt. WHAT A MESS FOLKS!
Life After Lockup honestly never disappoints in the drama department. It’s always been a dramatic series, but this season has been the wildest yet. Amber’s return was so unexpected, but the arrival of Puppy is intriguing. She doesn’t seem as committed to life on the straight and narrow as Amber, so tension’s going to rise. Lamar Jackson’s screwed up once again, and now Andrea Edwards is on the warpath. STOP KEEPING SECRETS FROM THAT WOMAN!
The most heartbreaking aspect of this Life After Lockup season by far is what Brittany Santiago is dealing with regarding her mother. Watching someone struggle with addiction like that with no idea what to do is gut wrenching. She’s trying so hard to help her change her lifestyle, but she’s at her wits end. The secrets that have been exposed about Scott were not expected, but it’s a game changer. He’s not who has claimed to be all this time. Cue a vengeful Lindsey.
Things are getting weirder and more dramatic this week for our favorite Life After Lockup couples. Are these people even capable of having a happy ending? It seems like they’re destined for turmoil for as long as they choose to be together. Amber’s return caught me entirely off guard, and now her prison wife Puppy is getting released. Can they even make things work on the outside? The bigger question is what role (if any) will creepy Vince play in their lives?
Another Life After Lockup couple that’s about to be tested again is Andrea Edwards & Lamar Jackson. It’s never smooth sailing for this couple. Lamar’s choice to encourage their daughter to keep secrets from her mother is going to bite him hard. It’s only a matter of time before Andrea learns the truth and loses her mind. Speaking of losing something, will Shawn ever locate Destine? He still has $50,000 on the line, and her disappearance could cost him.
