'The Game' Premiere: Jennifer Coolidge Plays A Drug Dealer, But Still Saves Jenna's Life (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"The Game" (Tue., 10 p.m. EST On BET) returned for its Season 5 premiere with a one-hour episode that saw Jennifer Coolidge playing both a baddie ... and a sort of goodie. It opened with Tasha and Malik finding Jenna, seemingly dead in the garage in her underwear, but as the night progresses, she's thankfully not dead.

She did, however, overdose on drugs supplied by Jennifer Coolidge's drug-dealing character Marissa. And she's not in a good way at all. With CPR not working, Marissa shows up again attempting to collect on the $55,000 Marissa owes her. Instead, she saves Jenna's life using a needle she just happened to have in her purse.

"I don't want you guys to think I'm a d*****bag," she said after Malik carried Jenna into the house, "But I gotta charge you extra for this." Tasha pays off Jenna's debt, after which Malik agrees to take her back to rehab so she can get her life straight. In other words, it would actually be a good thing to not see Marissa again, as much fun as it was seeing Jennifer Coolidge in the role.

"The Game" continues every Tuesday night at 10 p.m. EST On BET.
