'Diarra From Detroit': 5 Things We Want To See in Season Two

We need a resolution to these dangling plot threads.

It's been a month, and we're still reeling from the finale of "Diarra From Detroit," in which our main character is ghosted by a date only to be swept up in a 30-year cold case. Although the central mystery wrapped nicely, there are enough dangling threads to form the basis of a potential season 2. We're not done with this cast of vibrant characters and their Detroit dwellings, so let's look at five things that must be addressed in the future.

Tea's love life

From being part of Diarra's team of amateur sleuths to dropping truth bombs, seeing a character like Tea on screen was refreshing. In episode 2, Tea hooks up with a DJ who takes up longer-term residence in his crib. Tea's anxiety about getting rid of him is compounded when Diarra suggests that Tea treat him nicely—he is, after all, one person who can place Diarra at the scene of a murder. In the finale, it looks like Detective Holstein contacted the DJ. Did things go south with Tea? If the show returns, we're not done with the hobosexual DJ or the detective. 

A family reunited

Vonda Brooks channeled her guilt and grief over losing her son Deonte into rescuing abducted children. In the finale, Diarra hands her a crucial piece of evidence with all the answers to the case. We didn't get to see Vonda reunite with her son on screen, but season 2 could rectify that sooner rather than later.

Danger turned out to be a lot more than a bit player in the overall canvas of the story. From providing Diarra therapeutic massages to being a key to Deonte's kidnapping, he's firmly entrenched in Detroit's underworld and Diarra's bed. He now has to deal with a new guilt—the death of his mother figure, Velvet.  

Diarra's love life

The show ended with Diarra confirming the date of the ghosting of Ambian Chris, Deonte Brooks, who had ghosted her, and she rescued him from Velvet's shack. As they pulled off in their getaway car, it seemed like Happily Ever After. However, Diarra's husband, Swa, still has a thing for her. Their divorce is yet to be finalized, and Swa has the resources, elegance, and history to easily worm himself into her life, disrupting a potential romance with Deonte.

"The Chief"

Initially, we thought Zervas was the big boss of Detroit's Greek Mafia, but when dealing with The Business, there's always a bigger boss. The Woodward Boys killed Zervas right in front of Diarra, and someone called "The Chief" still hovers in the background of Deonte's initial kidnapping. Diarra kicked up so much dust with her sleuthing that we have a feeling she has now landed in the mysterious Chief's crosshairs.
