This season on Prisoner of love, prison matchmaker Chelsea Holmes found herself in love at work. In fact, she has found herself in love twice. She is a prison matchmaker. Chelsea matches inmates with people from the outside world. First, she was dating Manuel and it sounded pretty serious. Unfortunately he ghosted her but she found love with Michael. She ended up going looking for him when he was released, they got the same tattoos, the relationship got long distance and he messed it up. Chelsea must decide if they can handle this or abandon it.
Aluntra waited years for her sweetheart, Bryce, to be released. Now that he’s out, they’re planning a wedding. He has panicked about finances since he just started working again. So he quit his job and decided to become self-employed. This set the couple on fire. Bryce has tried to make up for Aluntra and is hoping they can still walk down the aisle. As for the clients of Chelsea, they don’t have much luck with their inmate love affairs. Who will end up happy and who will end up alone? It’s time to find out.
Chelsea visits him Prisoner of love
To find out where they stand, Chelsea goes to see Michael. They don’t communicate, so she thinks she better go visit him. He goes out to dinner with two of his friends because seeing her makes him anxious. She phones while he’s outside and he avoids her. He admits that his frustration with him makes him anxious, so he doesn’t want to face it. Michael knows she was there while he was locked up, so he’s loyal, but being on the outside is a big deal and a change. They’ll try to talk about it and if it doesn’t work, Michael will be single.
Before seeing Michael, Chelsea zooms in with her best friend, Jonathan. He doesn’t understand why she lets Michael run over him. They haven’t spoken for days yet here she is. She was so excited at the start of the relationship and now the doubts are pouring in. Jonathan wants Michael to take ownership of the relationship while Chelsea just wants answers.
She is waiting for Michael to introduce himself and she is very anxious. He presents himself with flowers, calling her his queen. Because she was so loyal to him while he was locked up, it was hard for him to tell her that he just wanted to be friends. She said they can’t be friends because she feels she’s been used by him. Chelsea sent him meals every week, entertained him every night, she was there when no one else was. They are now complete.
Shopping ring with Bryce
Despite being on a budget, Bryce wants the best ring for Aluntra. He chooses the best possible ring and wants his birthstone as the center stone. Bryce admits that when he quit his job, he got cold feet, mostly financially. He knows that if he started selling drugs again, he could have this ring in a day. Yet he doesn’t want this life anymore so he will do whatever he has to do to get this ring. It is valued at $ 2,250. He tells the sales clerk to put him on hold and he will come back.
Aluntra, on the other hand, tries on her wedding dress. She has never officially tried it since it was adapted and so on. If Bryce doesn’t cry, she’ll end the marriage and start walking again. Her best friend says she almost cried when she saw her in it. It just solidifies that she’s ready to walk down the aisle. The day before the wedding, Bryce’s family invite them to dinner to celebrate.
Aluntra wants it reiterated that she will be his wife and that she will come first. His family is very proud to have him there. They really kiss him and love him. It’s wedding time and Aluntra has so much to do. As for Bryce, he knows there were a few times he thought they weren’t going to make it and here they are.
Brey, Dexter and his Prisoner of love
Dexter prepares to go see his prison sweetheart Yolanda so he meets his son, Brey. Brey introduced him to this whole prison date thing. Sadly, Brey’s relationship with Arlette came to an end when he learned that she had shot someone. Dex’s biggest concern is that Yolanda could be a little gold digger. Still, he’s ready to take a chance and meet her in person. He wants to know if she is there for him or for his money. Brey is nervous about the kind of person Yolanda is.
Although Brey said he was done with dating in prison, he started texting Cynthia, another inmate. They’ve come up with a whole list of things to do over the summer. Dex is surprised to learn that his son is back in the prison dating game, but they both wish each other good luck. Now that Dex has some free time, he can make the trip to see Yolanda so he’s ready to share this news. She’s late for the call so it’s suspicious. He calls Chelsea to find out what’s going on.
Since Yolanda is in a halfway house, there might be some rules she has to follow. Eventually, Chelsea returns to Dex and reveals that she has learned that Yolanda is back in prison. She had just gotten her cosmetology license back, so it’s a major shock all around. He wasn’t expecting it, but it’s a risk you take with dating in prison.
How does it all end?
Chelsea just wants to find that one and she’s really broken by what happened with Michael. She repeats that she will not be his friend at all. However, she still has work to do and that means taking care of clients like Dexter. He has a call with Yolanda to find out what exactly happened that led her from the halfway house to jail. She claims she injured her foot and because of that she was a disability. Her case manager then told her that she should go back to jail.
Yolanda wants to know if he’ll still be there for her when she comes out this time around. Dex sure says and he’ll help him get through this. He is ready to try his luck in love. The two are still talking and look forward to meeting after his release. Isa graduated from college and completed her Masters in Social Work. As for Chelsea, she is really ready to get rid of Michael everything.
Now she needs to get rid of her name tattoo, so she covers it up instead of changing it to St. Michael. Admittedly, the breakup was difficult, but she hopes her journey has only just begun. She is currently dating two men, only one of whom is being held. Aluntra had the wedding of her dreams and they couldn’t have looked happier. She wants everyone to believe in second chances and love.
