Well Sunshine, all good things must come to an end. Overall I enjoyed this season. I don’t think there will be another one. I also don’t think this season should’ve happened. Ideally Season 5 would’ve ended and then we got a movie to show the wedding. I felt like the wedding show was so rushed. It really could’ve been more. As far as my final thoughts, I have mixed feelings. I’m glad Tiwa came around and realized it’s best for her and her husband to be a team. I’m also happy she became pregnant again and is getting ready to give birth. I also appreciate Didi finding love. She really matured and I am all here for it. What seemed a bit underwhelming for me was Shalewa’s story line. There is a part of me that understands that Mohammed made a mistake and is apologetic. There is another part of me that is concerned because I struggle with his capacity and/or willingness to do the needful. Is he going to fight for Shalewa and put her 1st? Will they just become good friends? That question wasn’t answered. The best part to me of Shalewa’s story is when she let Kwame have it. She stood up for herself and it was the Shalewa we’ve been waiting to see. I’m not sure what the future holds for this cast or the series. Let it be know…. I will forever be a Skinny Girl in Transit fan.
