Treme 3.08 Preview: LaDonna Gets Threats from a Stranger

treme hboEver since she appeared in court earlier this season on Treme to face her rapist, LaDonna has been seeing several hooded, threatening men in Gigi’s. None ever interact with her minus some creepy staring, but it was still something that unnerved her after her experience last season, particularly as she could never find out who exactly these guys are. Are they friends of the men that she helped put behind bars? Or, worse yet, are they simply random guys from around the way that don’t take too kindly to a female speaking up about sexual assault?

Tonight on Treme, the intimidation goes to another level and LaDonna begins fearing for her safety. It’s one thing to come to the bar to stare her down before eventually getting thrown out; it’s another to show up in her neighborhood and near her (new) house that she lives in with her family. With the sentencing of her attacker taking longer than she wanted and no closure from the incident to speak of in the near future, LaDonna likely won’t go to NOPD due to their ineffectualness since Katrina and the desire to not deal with a mountain of bureaucracy again. Instead, she turns to Albert for support; the two have been getting friendly during the third season of Treme and he makes for a strong shoulder to lean in at a time like this. Albert may be going through his own ordeal with the lymphoma, but in the preview for tonight’s episode, he offers a sage piece of advice: you’ve got to let them know that you’re not afraid.

Elsewhere on Treme, Desautel’s opens softly and Tim still isn’t worrying, Sonny pawns his instruments to buy jewelry for Linh, Sofia gets evicted for her own protection, Annie and Davis have a fight (that’s been a long time coming), and Desiree confronts Robinette.

Treme airs tonight at 10:00 on HBO. You can check out the TVOvermind Treme discussion forum here.

Will Annie and Davis be able to last the rest of the season before their inevitable break-up? Is Janette’s restaurant really ready to open? How will LaDonna react to finding out the identity of the threatening men?
