Love After Lockup: John Slater is Over Lacey
John Slater and Lacey of Love After Lockup have dated on and off since high school. In the previous episode, John revealed he even thought he loved her. He sits down and writes a letter to Lacey, ending their relationship. He even tells her it’s the last time she’s ever going to hear from him.
John says he knows she doesn’t care but it’s his goodbye letter to her. Lacey finally broke him when she called the cops, knowing it could put him back in prison for five or six years. He’s done with her for good. John Slater calls his buddy Lloyd and tells him to meet at their usual bar. He tells WEtv viewers of Love After Lockup that drugs and alcohol have always been his go-to.

An ice cream bar is exactly what he needs to satisfy his craving and not go on a bender.
Lacey’s Dad Has a Beef

Lacey set him up, and before that, they had a plan to get married and start a family. Now she’s pregnant and Shane Whitlow is taking over his place in her life on Love After Lockup.
Lloyd surprisingly has some decent advice for John Slater. Any woman who’d treat him like that isn’t worth being married to, in his opinion.
