WEED.

LIFE WAS LIKE WHEN WE GOT INTO

THIS RELATIONSHIP.

YOU SAID, SPIDER, I'M ALL IN.

I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU'RE A

DANGEROUS MAN.

BUT FROM A CONGRESSWOMAN WHO IS

SOMETIMES A BLACK WOMAN, I LIKE

DANGER.

THOSE WERE YOUR WORDS.

YOU BETRAYED ME.

I THINK MAYBE WE SHOULD GO OUR

SEPARATE WAYS.

>> I THINK SO TOO.

BUT IT WAS OKAY UNTIL IT WASN'T

OKAY.

ME TODAY.
