When a primary character leaves a TV show, the question always comes: will fans stick around?

BET's The Game, shot in Atlanta at EUE Screen Gems, is facing that question for its 100th episode.

Tia Mowry-Hardrict chose to depart last year so they wrote her character Melanie off the show. Melanie decides to resume her work at Johns Hopkins so she can become a full-fledged doctor.  Her pro wide receiver husband Derwin, played by Pooch Hall, was against this at first, then came around. Conveniently, he is traded to the team in Baltimore so he'll be near Melanie. Hall's character appeared on Tuesday's episode for a farewell. It's unclear if Mowry will pop up at all this season.
