Who is Quinn in Amazon’s Harlem season 1?

Prior to the start of Harlem season 1, Quinn (Grace Byers) worked in an office job that made her mother Patricia (Jasmine Guy) extremely proud. The fact that Quinn was miserable in her job didn’t matter to Patricia. But it did to Quinn, and she quit her job. Patricia was extremely disappointed and judged her daughter for quitting whilst having no other prospects lined up. 

Cut to five years later, and Quinn has her own business “Quinn Joseph”. But as it isn’t doing all that well, Patricia still doesn’t approve and belittles Quinn at every opportunity. A frequent dater, Quinn often goes from date to date, with most of the dates turning out to be horrendous. But does her luck change when she meets Shawn (Robert Ri’chard)? Although he goes against her code, as he is a stripper with a child (J.J. Tyler Williams), Quinn still likes him. Despite her efforts to not do so.

Then business even begins to pick up for Quinn! Although it does come at a small cost. She agrees to make the wedding dress for Mira (Rana Roy), aka the fiancée of Ian (Tyler Lepley). Whilst it will earn Quinn five figures, Camille (Meagan Good) and Tye (Jerrie Johnson) take issue with the fact. It doesn’t take long, however, for her friends to come round to the idea. 

Quinn makes a decision

With her business (slightly) improving and her relationship with Shawn looking to head somewhere, all that’s left to do is bond with J.J. Although, she at first falls asleep whilst babysitting, she takes J.J bowling, and they have a great time. The only problem is that she also bonds with Isabela (Juani Feliz) in the process. Confused with almost sharing a kiss with Isabela, Quinn asks Tye for advice before she moves ahead with Isabela.

Ultimately at the close of the season, Quinn decides to ask Isabela out on a date, which Isabela accepts. But what does this mean for Shawn? Whilst Quinn is more than thrilled that Isabela accepted her offer of a date, has you considered how Shawn will feel or react?
