Tare & Telema open today’s episode in Tare’s flat. Tare hopes that is the last they see of Kwame around there but Telema tells her that Kwame can be unusually possessive & has refused to consent to the annulment. Tare suggests they get a restraining order against him but Telema has other ideas. She will go back to him & show him what it is like to marry a trapped woman. Tare looks like “what?” She explains that she will go back & make the marriage so bad that all Kwame will want is to get rid of her. Tare does not think it is a good idea as Kwame is the one that is the manipulator. Telema reminds Tare that she is an actress & went in to pack her bags. 
Fred is driving to Lokoja with Fred beside him. Phillip keeps reminding him of the need for him to turn back & forget Lokoja & Laide but he tells Phillip to go home. 
Ma Reginald & Amaka are seeing Nkiru off. When she leaves, Ma Reginald ask Amaka when she should resume. Amaka does not think she is good enough. Ma Reginald tries to argue her case but Amaka reminds her in a raised voice that the boy in question is her son, & she decides who takes care of him. Ma Reginald says it’s ok & Amaka apologizes as Ma Reginald makes to go upstairs. 
Kwame is looking on forlornly with a glass of juice on his dining table when a knock goes at the door. He calls John but had to get the door himself as John was not around. He is shocked to see Telema at the door. She walks in with her bags & he asks why she didn’t let herself in, but she did not leave with her keys. She tells him she is back & he stutters that he is glad. She tells him they need to talk; no more lies, no more manipulations. He agrees. She turns & heads to her room with an instruction that he should get John to get her bags. He has this “what exactly is going on here” look as she sashays away. 
Phillip & Fred are still having their uncomfortable discussion. Fed has parked the car & insists that Phillip drop & go home. Phillip refused, so he thrust some notes at him. When Phillip wonders what they are for, he tells him it is his transport fare back to Lagos. They were parked at Sagamu overhead bridge! Phillip refuses & reminds him that he taught him not to throw money at his problems. He reminds Phillp that he also taught him not to abandon whatever he thinks is right. When Phillip refuses to get down, Fred gets down & carries his bag & was waiting to flag down a vehicle. 
….oh, GT Assur, for life & living…
Shalewa comes to meet Sheila & Sheila asks if it has to do with her dad again. Shalewa confirms it is & she has collected 730 signatures on her petition to force the police to free her dad, or at least allow him visitors. She appeals to Sheila to assist with the right contacts who will help in addition to adding her own signature. Sheila tells her to allow the law take it’s course. She eventually manages to convince Shalewa to spend some time with Freddy who is home on hols rather than rushing off. 
Phillip gets down to beg Fred to get back into the car. Fred refuses & tells him to drive the car back to Lagos. Phillip then offers to drive the car to Lokoja himself if Fred agrees to get back in. Fred agrees & gets back into the car. Fred gets down to pick something from the booth & Phillip used the opportunity to quickly call Sheila on Fred’s phone & brief her on the situation. He has to drive Fred to Lokoja or he will take any rickety vehicle he can find. 
Shalewa is begging Freddy to help her & Freddy wants to know what to do. She ells him that they are planning a demonstration to the prison where they will sing & protest the abuse of Dan’s human rights. Freddy reminds her that he is not good at singing & Aunty Sheila will not want him near prisons. Shalewa tells him that she needs his social media expertise to spread the news about what they want to do. Freddy laughs at her for not knowing what to do on Facebook & she reminds him that he needs to help as Dan is his uncle too. 
Tare is in Angela’s bedroom & asking her about a vava voom combination. Angela thanks her & tells her to leave. She refuses saying that she came to ensure that her client who just left the spa after a pedicure is happy with their services. She wants Angela to get ready for her hot date, but Angela asks her to stop living her life vicariously through another person. Tare eventually leaves & Angela picks out a blouse from the wardrobe & continue to preen in front of the mirror. 
Sheila calls Amaka to tell her the latest about Phillip & Fred. Amaka is shocked that Fred could not delay his trip for a couple of hours but decided to drive. Sheila confirms that Phillip left his phone at home when he ran after his dad & Amaka understood why she has not been able to reach him. He is wanted by the executives at World Movies. Sho & Nneka are in Ene’s flat getting their placards ready. Nneka is worried about going out to demonstrate to avoid being harassed or news of their exploits getting back to their parents. Sho will have none of that. Shalewa walks in in her aluta outfit; an austere green top & pants with her hair securely tied. She tells the others to get ready so that they can roll. Just then, Ene enters & opens her mouth. 
…mumm, mummy, we must hurry up…
Ene is surprised at what Shalewa & co had done to her flat. They apologize & promise to clean up when they come back from their procession. Ene tells her that she signed her petition to show her support, but she is taking this whole thing too far. The ladies are not budging so she grabs her phone to call TTK. Sho grabs the phone from her & the house keys & runs off with the rest in her wake. By the time Ene recovered from her shock, they had locked her in & told her that it is for the common good. 
Amaka & Ma Reginald are struggling to get Toochi to stop crying when someone knocks. Amaka opens & it is Hope, another prospective nanny from the agency. Amaka tells her to go that she is not ready for any interview then. Ma Reginald asks the nanny to come in. Amaka will not let her in as she cannot even conduct an interview in that circumstances. Hope then asks whether Toochi was immunized that day. The two women confirm so & she tells them that she can help. Ma Reginald asks her to come in & passes the baby to her. Hope asks for a towel soaked in cold water. She holds the baby nicely while Ma Reinald goes to fetch the wet towel while Amaka watches on. Hope collects the towel and starts wiping the baby down. 
TTK is at home when her phone rings & it’s Sheila. Sheila tells her that Salewa is still in self-denial & should be told the truth about her father. TTK is not happy that Fred has not made a call to free his brother. Sheila reminds her that he is being held for murder. She tells TTK about Salewa’s visit to Fred the other day & asks her to watch out for her as she may be planning something. TTK erupts in anger & tells her that she has a good hold on her daughter. Sheila tells her to have fun & wonders why she is worrying about what should not be her issue especially now that she has a lot to worry about & drops the phone. TTK’s phone rings immediately after & it’s Detecive Sankey who screams at TTK to come & collect her daughter who has been arrested for constituting a nuisance from the Police station. 

NEXT on Tinsel
Ma Sho & TTK are arguing over which child spoilt the other at the police station while their daughters & their friends are busy chanting freedom songs. Sankey rushes in & orders both parties to keep quiet before she arrests all of them. 



Phillip & Fred are still arguing about going to Lokoja. Phillip comes up with all kinds of reasons why Fred should not go to Lokoja but Fred is adamant. He tells Phillip to leave Sheila to him. Not making any headway, Phillip joins him in the car to continue the discussion as he tells Titus to drive off.
Amaka interviews a new nanny in Ma Reginald’s presence. She seems to have some concerns about the suitability of the nanny. Ma Reginald also has her own issues with the lady’s ability to care for Amaka’s baby. 
Tare & Telema meets with Mrs. Bewati, the divorce lawyer, the same one that Sheila spoke with. She wants to know who is seeking for divorce & Telema confirms that she is the one. The lawyer is surprised that she is married. Telema tells her it was a very private affair but now she wants a divorce. The lawyer asks why & Tare tells her that she was tricked into the marriage. The lawyer tells them that it is difficult to dissolve a new wedding as the court requires a two-year period before a divorce to allow couples try to resolve their issues. 
Phillip & Fred continue to argue about the trip to Lokoja when an announcement comes up on the car radio. there is scarcity of aviation fuel leading to the cancellation of flights. Fred calls his contact at the airport & confirms the news. He also cannot get a private aircraft to take to Abuja. 

Phillip tells him that he cannot make the trip as there is no flight but Fred replies that the journey continues by road! Phillip is surprised & Titus the driver reminds Fred of his family emergency. Fred remembers & tells him to stop at the next bus stop so that he can take over. 
Ma Reginald tells Amaka that she knows a perfect candidate for her nanny! She is Nkiru, her sister’s daughter who Amaka vaguely remembers. Ma Reginald believes that she is good for the post. She does not think that there is a need for an interview but as Amaka insisted, she calls & sets up the interview.
Titus, Fred’s driver returns to the house to report to Sheila. He tells her that Fred is going to Lokoja by road due to the scarcity of aviation fuel. He also tells her how Fred & Phillip were arguing seriously about the trip. Sheila is shocked that Fred could think of driving for that long but Titus tells her not to worry that Phillip will drive the car.
Tare tells Mrs. Bewati about Telema being deceived into the marriage & Telema confirms that they have not consummated the union. The lawyer suggests that in that case, an annulment may be easier to get but as Telema is the one staying away from her husband, she will need her husband’s consent for the annulment to go through. Telema & Tare are horrified that they are still stuck with Kwame. 
Nkiru comes for the interview. Mama Reginald does most of the talking on her behalf. She explains to Amaka how Nkiru took care of her siblings & also managed to car for a sick baby in the midst of a storm. Nkiru has little to say for herself.
Tare & Telema mull over their meeting with Mrs. Newark, the lawyer. Tare wonders what kind of divorce lawyer tells her client to stick with her marriage? How does she get work? As they think of what to do, Kwame knocks on the door & Tare turns to Telema when she sees who is at the door. Telema tells her to let him in. He comes in & says he wants to speak with Telema alone. Telema asks Tare who is standing beside her with arms folded across her chest to give them some time. Tare goes into the room but promises to be within earshot. Kwame apologizes to Telema for the way he treated her. He asks her to come back home & promises to treat her better. She tells him that she is tired of his deceit intrigues & wants nothing to do with him. She wants out of the marriage. He tells her that he will not consent to any annulment of their marriage as he has not given up on them. As he raises his voice, Tare comes out of the room & takes position beside Telema again. Kwame shuffles out. 

Tare & Telema consider their options now that Kwame will not agree to the annulment. Tare was thinking up options when Telema tells her that she will go back to Kwame’s house. Tare asks her whether she is not tired of drama? Telema is determined to go to the house & show Kwame what it is like to be married to a trapped woman. She gets up to go & pack her bags. 
Fred takes over driving while Phillip sits shotgun & Fred tells him to letdown from the car so that he can continue his trip.


Fred is still at the prison with Dan. He asks Dan if he is sure Laide went to Lokoja & Dan says that is what Laide said. Fred confirms that he has been to Laide’s family house in Lokoja in the past but worries that it is unlike Laide to take her problem home. She would normally bear her problems herself.
Amaka helps Mama Reginald cut oranges or something & tells her to relax for once. Mama Reginald asks her if she misses Reginald? Amaka says yes & that she thinks she misses what it is like to marry Reginald more than Reginald. Mama Reginald agrees with her that sometimes we become so involved in things that we no longer appreciate the nice things we share. She apologizes to Amaka for the way Reginald treated her.
Kwame comes home & meets Telema at home & asks for his shirt. She asks him what shirt & tells him that they need to talk. She asks him whether he sent texts to people pretending to be Varere the night Varere was murdered? He asks her who she has been talking to? Oh, she must have been talking to that detective? She asks him to answer her question, whether he sent a text to Dan & Tare as Varere asking them for a meeting after he has been roughened up by him & Soji? He tells her that he did not send any texts with his number & she tells him that he could not have been stupid enough to send them from a number that will be traced to him.
Angela & her colleagues come in for an emergency meeting & were wondering what the meeting is for when Mrs. Haruna comes in & shows them the evening newspaper. Phillip has just announced the timelines for the production of The Flood Plains. Angela sees the paper first & wonders what is wrong with Phillip. Mrs. Haruna asks her what she knows about it & tells the others to leave the meeting while she talks to Angela in private. Angela tells her that she ran into Phillip & how Phillip believes that Chris asked him to make the film by passing the Flood Plains manuscript to him. She tells Mrs. Haruna that she thought nothing if it as Phillip has nothing written other than a dying man’s suicide nite. Mrs. Haruna tells her to fix it, or forget about any promotion.
Mummy, mummy, we must hurry up!!!!
Kwame eventually accepts that he sent the texts but refuses to accept any blames for Dan’s decisions. Telema flares up & asks him what kind of man he is? She tells him that he is a stranger to telling the truth, he is selfish, self-centered & self-ritheous. She goes on an on and on.  She asks? She tells him that she knew the kind of man he was before she married him but was hoping that she will discover a good part of him. 
Mrs. Haruna calls Amaka & tells Amaka about the press conference held by Phillip to announce work on The Flood Plains.  Amaka confirms that she has not seen it, but promises to deal with it. Mrs. Haruna tells her to get on it so that their first meeting in person will not be in court. Mama Reginald walks in with Amaka looking all worried.
Fred is eating with Sheila. He tells Sheila that he plans to go to look for Laide in Lokoja. Sheila will have none of it. He explains that it is not to look for Laide but for the child as he is not ready to have another Brenda on his hands. To make the whole thing transparent & show it is not about Laide, he wants Sheila to come with him. Sheila refuses & tells him that the best thing is to leave Laide out of their life. Fred insists he will go if she won’t come & she tells him that if leaves for the trip, it will be over between them & walks away from the table.
Telema tells Kwame that her rape must have been the best thing that happened to him. He played on Dan & Tare’s love for her to coax them into doing what he could not do. He asks her whether he is now the coward? He reminds her that since she came into the house, he has always tried to make her happy. Even the unfortunate rape incident was due to his trying to make her happy. He tells her to go & get ready so that they go out & cool off at a dinner. She tells him to forget it & asks him if that is his way of sweeping the matter under the carpet. Who on earth are you, Kwame Mensah? He decides to go out for a walk & as he was leaving, she tells him that she has always known that their marriage was a farce but was hoping to be proved wrong. It is over& she wants a divorce. He stops in his tracks.
Mama Reginald asks Amaka what the problem is & she tells her that it is Phillip who has created another problem. Now she has to go and deal with it. Mama Reginald tells her to take things easy & her office people should also realize that she has a baby to care for & stop worrying her. While Amaka was getting worked up, Toochi starts to cry. Amaka makes to go & get him but Mama Teginald tells her to leave him that babies feel the mother’s anger. 
Kwame comes back to Telema & tells her that they are now married & he intends to keep it that way. He tells her that people get married for all kinds of reasons & make an effort to make the marriage work. She tells him that apart from lying to her, she should not have married him in the first place even for Soji’s sake. She should have looked for another way to solve her problem then as she has always suspected that he cannot be trusted. He reminds her that they made a vow that is bound by law which he is not ready to annul & tells her to get used to the marriage & picks his bag & went for a walk.
Mummy, mummy, we must hurry up…
Sheila goes to visit Phillip who asks her whether the harassment has started. She does not know what he is talking about. When he confirms that she was not sent by Amaka, he told her that he was expecting Amaka to come shouting about his press conference. Sheila tells him that she is not bothered by that. She came to talk to him about his father. 
Mama Reginald comes downstairs & sees Amaka adding the newspaper about Phillip’s press conference. She asks Amaka why she was still at home? The way Amaka was screaming, she was expecting her to have gone to Phillip’s house to show him pepper! She galls Mama that she decided to take her advice & defer going to confront Phillip till her anger goes down.
Kwame comes back to meet John the table. He asks where Telema is as her car is not in the driveway. John confirms that Telema has gone out & with a packed suitcase. She said she will come back for the rest. She did not say where she was going to. Kwame tries to call her but her phone was switched off. He tells John not to worry, that Telema will come back soon.
Phillip is not interested in talking about his father’s impending trip to Lokoja. Sheila try’s to goad him on, but he refuses. She tells him that if he does not stop his father from going after Laide, she will leave & if Laide gets into the house, only God knows how long it will take her to scheme  & corner all Fred’s properties for her child. Phillip is still not bothered. He wants to for once be known as Phillip Ade-Williams & not Fred Ade-Williams’ son. He tells Sheila to go home & talk to her husband. Sheila flared up & called him a coward & a spoilt brat. The only time his stubbornness is needed for common good, he is shying away from responsibility. He tells her to leave. She picks her bag up & walks close to him & delivers it: okay, I will leave but if I leave this marriage, I will make sure that I do not go down alone. I will tell Fred that while he suffered, his wife & son shared the same bed!

Fred visits Amaka about Laide. He is surprised when Amaka tells him Toochi is with Reginald’s mum. She confirms Mrs. Okoh is visiting for a short while. He tells her he is looking for Laide & asks if Amaka knows where she can be found. Amaka is not ready to tell if she knows.
Telema is visited at home by a producer who wants to cast her as Margaret Ekpo in a film about the woman. Telema declines because she does not think that the biopic of such a great woman should be colored by the kind of scandals currently associated with her manager confessing to murder, etc. The woman tells her not to worry that her PR team will ensure that the audience concentrates on the right things. She leaves the script with Telly. 
Amaka refers Fred to Sheila if he wants to find Laide. Fred tells her that Sheila is not being rational at that moment & that he still loves his wife but is only interested in the child. Amaka refuses to help reminding Fred that she was in a similar condition when Angela was pregnant for Reginald & that she would have hated anyone that helped Angela then. Fred blames the whole thing on his amnesia but Amaka still would not budge. As Fred gets up to leave, Amaka tells him that she wants to discuss the latest thing Phillip is up to which could create problems between Reel Studios and World Movies with him, but he tells her that he has other things on his mind and does not care what Phillip is up to at that moment.

Bimpe meets Telema at Ziggy’s and passes on the measurement & ATM card. She stops on her way out to tell Telema to beg Kwame not to fire her. Telema asks her which crime she has committed this time around & Bimpe asks Telema how she is now the criminal here in a raised voice. She tells a confused Telema that if Kwame wanted to destroy the SIM card he used to send those text messages, he should have disposed of it safely. She rants on about not caring about whatever he wants to do but on her way out, stops & comes back to tell Telema to to tell Kwame about her not caring about the job but summarize their discussion & emphasize her loyalty to Kwame.

Amaka agrees & confirms from her personal experience.

He asks if Dan knew where Laide is,& also tells him that it will be understandable, if he is not willing to disclose that. Dan tells him hat Laide is at the family house in Lokoja.
Telema is at Detective Sankey’s office & Sankey asks her what she does to make men want to kill other men because of her. Sankey has never experienced men fighting over her & wonders whether she needs to change her perfume or is it her clothes to get men to take such an interest in her. Telema asks her what she is talking about & she asks Telema if Kwame or Tare did not tell her about the texts Kwame sent on the night Varere was murdered? When she was still looking blank, Sankey tells her that on the night Varere was murdered by Dan, Kwame sent a text as Varere to all the people he knew hated Varere because of what happened to Telema & told them that he has been beaten up because of Telema & that if they did not meet wit him to resolve it, he will deal with them by making the information public.

She also tells Amaka that it is her very good nature that makes bad people take advantage of her. She also asked Amaka to stop pretending to be a super woman & wondered how Amaka thinks she could cope without a nanny.

Telema visits Tare in her office & Tare teases her for enjoying too much at the bar the other day & having a little too much to drink. Telema is happy that Tare attended. Tare told her that she is already married to the guy, so she has to start getting used to him as her brother-in-law. She comments that they seem to be getting along nicely, but Telema was worried about Kwame’s behaviour when they got home that day. She complains that he treated her roughly & ordered her around & told her that no wife of his will go around getting drunk. Tare explains that it is understandable considering what Kwame has gone thru with drunk people including the accident with Brenda which landed him in a wheel chair & discovering his father’s body who also drunk himself to death. She tells Telema about Brenda’s being back in rehab for her alcohol problem. Telema’s mouth hung open.

She then goes out. Angela asks Amaka what she has with old women bringing Mrs. Okoh in after what she went through with Mrs. Etuk.

…mummy, mummy, we must hurry up…
Angela asks Amaka what they plan to do to clean up the mess Phillip is making with the sequel to The Harmattan Diaries. Amaka insists that if Phillip insisted on Chris leaving him the manuscript, then there must be some truth in it. Angela then tells her that the story can be told that Phillip pressured Chris & drove him to death or that Chris was not in his right senses when he willed the manuscript to Phillip. Amaka reminds her that it is not in he interest of either World Movies or Reel Studios for the story to get out there. She then suggests that Angela get her bosses to delay the press conference while she tries to get Phillip to also back down. Angela tells her that bribing the issue to her boss’s attention will make the whole thing worse.
Telema is shocked that she was never told these stories by either Kwame or Tare. Tare tells her that she is not supposed to know. The version of the accident story Kwame told her was different from the truth. Tare tells her that it is in line with Kwame’s desire to control things & give them a positive spin.
Kwame just finished a meeting in Ziggy’s bar when Soji comes in & goes to the bar. Kwame then walks up to him & thanks him for joning them the other night for drinks. Soji tells him it’s ok, so long as it made Telema happy. Kwame offers to buy him a drink so that they have a proper toast. Soji thanks him for the offer but declines & asks him to come clean if he has anything on his mind. He then tells Soji to give it up as he has put a ring on it & Telema can never be with Soji again. 
Tare calls Angela & wonders what is wrong with her. Angela complains that she hates her boss. Tare advises her to sue Mrs. Haruna for harassing her because of her outfit.

He tells Soji to stay away from his wife but Soji tells him that he should probably be having that conversation with his wife. He then asks Kwame to worry more about how to keep his wife away from him – Soji. He asks Kwame whether he knows where his wife is at that moment & concludes by giving Kwame a pat on the back. Kwame’s face looks like he just swallowed a big not-very-nice thing. Soji walks away leaving Frank & the other waiters staring at Kwame as if he is wearing the wrong outfit!
…and now to the highest marks ever awarded for a first class degree in this institution… Funmi Adebayo!
Bimpe calls Sankey to complain that her job seem to be on the line since she told Sankey where she got the SIM card. Sankey tells her that if Kwame knows who said so, it must have come from Bimpe as she did not tell anyone. Bimpe quickly cuts the call when Kwame enters the office. He asks her to re-arrange all his appointment for the afternoon after harassing her as he is going home for lunch.
Mrs. Haruna walks in to meet Angela for their meeting. She tells Angela that she found her file interesting & wanted to know more about the court cases, her unexplained absence, job hopping & her constant appearance on soft-sell magazines. This is after she has commended Angela’s outfit. .
Kwame gets home & is trying to call Telema & pacing the floor when she comes in with bags. She smiles & hails him but he asks her where she has been & why her phone has been off. She says she went to see Tare & also shopped. Her phone battery died. He tells her that she is married now & so should not be walking about the whole place. She cannot go shopping without telling him as it is his responsibility to take care of her. He also does not want her hanging out with Tare who he considers does not like their wedding. Telema touches his face & tells him to chill. She also tells him that they need to open up to each other if they want to give their relationship a chance to succeed.
Angela fills Mrs. Haruna in on the questions she asked & also tells her that she suffers from a psychotic disorder. Mrs. Haruna appreciates the honesty  but tells Angela that she will be retained, but from her level of experience she will be doing a less important job a lower pay.

NEXT on Tinsel…

Bimpe is sitting with Telema at Ziggy’s & was loudly complaining that it is not her fault that she told Sankey about the SIM card Kwame used to send those texts the day Varere was killed. If he wanted the SIM to disappear, he would not have disposed of it so carelessly. Telema asks her what she is talking about.


TTK is still crying from the shock that Dan is actually guilty of murder. He tells her to snap out of it & she snaps at him! She asks him what he will do if she does not stop, kill her too, & claim temporary insanity? She suddenly tells him to plead temporary insanity but he refuses even for Shalewa’s sake. TTK tells him that she will send Shalewa so that he tells her himself & gets up and walks out.
Tare calls Angela to give her the full details of Emile’s work-out at the gym. Angela does not understand what she is talking about. Tare eventually tells her & wonders why she is acting obtuse about a guy who looks at her as if she is Christmas!
