In the season premiere of “If Loving You is Wrong,” tensions are at an all time high amongst friends and neighbors, now turned foes. Viewers’ suspicions were confirmed when it was revealed that Alex’s (Amanda Clayton) baby is the product of her affair with neighbor Randal (Eltony Williams). The arrival of the baby ignites a cycle of revenge that will continue throughout the season — angry husband Brad (Aiden Turner) lashes out at Alex by initiating his own extramarital relationship with Randal’s wife Marcie (Heather Hemmens); and adulterous Randal fights with wife Marcie, while planning his own acts of revenge against Brad. Elsewhere in the neighborhood, Esperanza (Zulay Henao) learns of ex Edward’s (Joel Rush) dealings with drug dealers as Edward sets into motion his plan to have killed fellow police officer, Pete (Chris Pipkin).
