Tyler the show is good,( BETTER THAN EMPIRE) but I am disappointed I like Veronica & Candice at war with other to see which one has the most guts to come out on top as a evil person( who would win the battle)…..Why would you make them friends now on the same side incarhoots against Erica & David that’s no battle at all.Please let Veronica stop dogging Jefferey & Justin. Veronica finally gets what she deserve now( In the car wreck maybe she will start being nice) I am waiting on Candice to get what she deserve now.
