Fred is in Phillip’s house & tells him to be man enough& look him in the face as he talks to him if he is man enough to sleep with his wife. Phillip looks at him & starts to wonder how she could…before Fred fells him with a punch to the jaw.


Fred accuses Phillip of scheming with Sheila behind his back. He asks what the relationship between them is? Phillip asks why he is bothered about his relating well with Sheila afterall that is what he has always wanted.  He denies Sheila has anything to do with his decision & also does not believe that his inheritance will not be affected. He can as well leave whatever newsies to the child without marrying his mother. Fred complains that he will not leave his child to be called all kinds of names in school. Phillip tells him that those things no longer matter anymore. Fred wonders why his case is different? There are so many men out there with more than one wife. He thinks that Phillip’s problem is that he is spoilt. Phillip reminds him that he objected to his marrying Sheila but relented when he said he loved her. No new step-mums. Fred pleads with him not to go ahead with the court case but he tells him that he has started already.  Fred dares him to go ahead. Mrs. Haruna calls Phillip & fixes a meeting for the next day.
Tare meets Kwame at Ziggy’s drinking. She sits with him &  reminds him of a story that Brenda told her once. It is the story of an unhappy couple trapped in an unhappy marriage. The wife was unhappy while the man drowned himself in alcohol, drank himself to death. Kwame asks her to get to her melodramatic story as he downs another drink. She asks him why he wants to subject her sister to the same kind of marriage his parents had. He tells her that she heard the version of a drunken Brenda. Tare tells him that it is rather tame compared to incitement to murder or blackmail into marriage. Kwame tells her that his marriage with Telema is not like that & she has over-stepped her boundaries talking about his marriage. Has she ever wondered why she is still single. She wishes that Telema never met Kwame. She asks him what else he has given her except pain? He tells her that he has given her more than she knows. She gets up & leaves his table.

He thinks she is pretending but offers to go with her but she says that she needs to drop Muni off at home. Muni tells her that she wants to stay back & join the gym. Emile asks if he can come see Angela late but she tells him no that she had a busy day. He offers to give her a massage but she says maybe tomorrow & flees.

(((All day, we expect our mouth to do… Oral B)))
Mrs. H calls Phillip to her office to talk about a scoop about Phillip starting a court case to declare his father incompetent. She heard that from a reporter. She asks him if he is out of his mind? He tells her that it is a family issue. She asks whether he has thought of the impact declaring his father incompetent will have on their relationship with WM? He tells her that the man is practically retired but she thinks that even as a figure head, an icon has it’s use.

Kwame wakes up & is looking for Telema everywhere. He calls John to ask after her. John tells him that she went out. That is obvious he replies sarcastically. John says that she went out without breakfast. Kwame asks if he knows where she went to? John thinks she went to the office.
Kwame calls Tare to ask if she has seen Telema. Tate tells him to stop calling her with such questions. He should not panic each time he does not see her for an hour. She is a grown woman. He cuts the phone on her & calls Bimpe. Bimpe tells him that  Telema was in the office but wants to stop off  at the doctor’s.
Phillip tells Mrs. H that he does not like to be threatened. She knows that from the way he was insisting on his rights over The Flood Journals. She asks why he is he doing this? He tells her that his father has been ill & no one n the family supports his decisions. She tells him that the Fred she saw the other does not look incompetent. Phillip tells her that he is ready to sacrifice everything for this case, even this film.
Angela looks for a replacement for Fabian Onyeka. As she struggles for who to get, Mrs. H enters & asks what the issue is. Angela tells her about Fabian not being able to make the movie. She tells Angela to concentrate on getting Titan to sign on as the whole project depends on him.
Kwame walks into Telema’s office & sees her there. That was quick, she tells him, let me guess, the Bimpe network. He asks her what she is doing. She has been given a movie role in the UK. Shooting starts in 1 week’s time. She wants to start getting ready. He asks where she went to & she tells him that short of following her about, he needs to understand that he cannot control everything about her. He tells her that he saw what she was looking at last night. Why is she looking at websites on tubal ligation? Is the prospect of bearing his child so abhorrent to her?  I did not tell you that. If u were not snooping around, you would have been blissfully ignorant. Having a child for me is such a terrible thing, he asks? You cannot control everything, Kwame, she tells him & leaves him.
(((Mummy, mummy, we must hurry up…)))
Fred’s friend tells him that marrying more than one wife is not for the faint-hearted. Fred asks whether he is changing his mind about what he said before?

Sheila comes in & asks what they are discussing about Laide. Chief Akinpelu introduces himself & invites her to come along for the marriage as it will give the family more comfort. Fred intervenes & says that he has not discussed the visit with Sheila. Sheila throws him out.
Angela tells Muni that Titan is not at the recording studio. She wants to know what Muni has been up to while she was away. If the only thing she can do is order hampers in phone, then she had better leave everything for Angela to do as usual. As she was complaining, Scott Akinjobi calls her & she tells him that she has not seen Titan. As they were talking, Titan walks in.
Telema talks to her producer as she walks into the house. She looks forward to working with him. As she sits down, John gives her a letter from Kwame. John tells her that Kwame is travelling but left her a letter. She opens the letter. He agrees that she has won & will draw up & execute the divorce papers. He is going out of town for a few days & wants her out of the house by the time he is back. She sits back & looks puzzled.
Fred asks Sheila what she is doing. Sheila tells him that she wants this man who has been feeding him the wrong things out of the house. Chief Akinpelu asks Fred if this is how his wife treats visitors? No wonder she is being replaced. Sheila asks whether she is now being replaced? Fred replies that it is not so. Chief Akinpelu tells Sheila not to let these television programs fool her. Tis is Africa where a man is the head of the house. She then tells him to please ask this person to leave. Fred tells her to stop. She then walks up to Fred & Chief & tells Fred to accept this as her parting gift. I slept with your son!

Next on Tinsel
Do you think I’m talking about wedding? Who is talking about wedding? I am talking about spiritual cleansing. That thing your wife did requires spiritual cleansing. She did not sleep with my son. She only said that to hurt me, Fred says. The woman I saw here does not look like she is joking, Chief Akinpelu replies. Spiritual punishment for this this is not for Sheila & Phillip alone but for the entire family including cousin’s cousins like me.


Kwame looks at the documents given to him by Telema & asks her where she got them from? They are official documents & who told her they are forged? She tells him that his manipulation will not work this time. She has enough evidence that they are forged. She knows he slept in a hotel instead of going to Ghana & has a recorded confirmation from his accomplice.   She tells him that she wants out of the marriage & he will release her or she will expose him to Brenda & everybody. He calls her a good actress & asks her if she also faked their love making because he felt something when they made love & believes that she did too. She does not care & will go ahead & expose him. Kwame looks like his food suddenly does not agree with him. 
Sheila comes downstairs & meets Fred pacing up& down. She asks if Phillip has left. Fred accuses her of being behind his latest problem with Phillip. She does not understand what he is talking about & tells him that he is responsible for whatever he is going through. He tries to explain that it is because of the child but Sheila tells him that the child will be fine. The issue is with him as is shown in his current children. Fred appears hurt. She tells him that e will be on his own if he goes ahead & marries Laide & walks away from him. As he is still struggling with this, his phone rings & it’s Laide. He tells her that he will be there.
Kwame accuses Telema of not being the woman he married. She agrees that she has changed & tells him that she wants out. She hands him the divorce papers which he is expected to sign if he wants peace. He reads through it & asks her if she read through the document she wants him to sign? Yes, she did. He tells her that she is out of her mind if she thinks that he will sign any document saying that he is impotent. She asks him what his problem is with lying for her to set her free? She tells him to choose whatever reason he wants out of the legal reasons for an annulment & sign the documents. Unless he wants Brenda & every other person to find out that he has been lying to them.
Titan & his father are in a meeting with WM’s production team discussing his movie project. He complains about the script & asks how the contents were arrived at? He thought that there was going to be a story to the movie. What he is hearing sounds like his day to day life. Delmuah explains that what they have is a high level document and other details will be added as they get more materials. He asks if the story line was lifted from Tinsel Town magazine? has issues with the part that talks about a struggling artiste whose career is affected by scandals in his girlfriend’s family & asks whose idea it was? As Angela was trying to explain, he adds that if the movie is really about his life, maybe they should add the part of an absentee father! His father & manager speaks up at this point & tells him not to disparage all the work that has been done so far. The input into the project was affected by his refusal to even consider it in the first place. As they were exchanging words, Mrs. H adjourns the meeting for Titan & his manager to sort out their issues.
(((Mummy, mummy, we must hurry up…)))
Telema reminds Kwame that he will lose everything. Kwame tells her that blackmail is beneath her. She tells him that he has succeeded in dragging her to his level. The constant manipulations, lies & always discovering new lies has led her to this & she is determined to see it through. He reminds her that he has been insecure, selfish, manipulating & never takes no for an answer. He thus will not sign the documents. He tears up the documents & stares at her. She tells him that she is not bluffing & will go ahead & expose him for who he is to Brenda, Odyssey Pictures board, & the police & he will go to jail. He tells her to go ahead & calls Brenda & throws his phone at her. 
The only reason Titan was considering the movie is because his father insisted. His father tells him that he is doing what he thinks is best for his career. Left to Toks, they would have been struggling with that clothing line idea of his. Titan tells him that he is not doing anything for his career but he is trying to live the life he could not have through him. As they argue further, Scott tells Titan to go ahead & do what he likes since he knows best now.
Brenda comes on the line & nobody talks to her. She feels it must be a bad connection as she cannot hear anything & drops the phone. He thanks her for doing the right thing & not talking to Brenda. She tells him that she thought that there is one relationship he found sacred which is with his sister. He has shown that he has no respect for his sister. He is cheating & stealing from her! Kwame tells her that she does not understand what she is talking about. She knows enough to know that marrying him is the worst decision of her life. Whatever is wrong with him, she has concluded that she will not be able to fix it. She also knows that he will not give her a divorce even after the two years but she knows what she has to do now. What is that, he asks? She has to go now, & leaves. He looks questioningly at her as she leaves the restaurant.
Phillip tells Amaka that he thinks that the only way to stop the marriage is to go to court & declare Fred legally incompetent. Amaka does not think it is right. Phillip reminds her that she must have thought about it herself. Amaka still thinks that the scandal of taking Fred to court will be too much. The tabloids will have a field day. Phillip asks how she thinks they should handle it? Allow Fred to go ahead with it? The press will also go crazy. Amaka tells him that the scandal of Fred marrying a second wife will be tame compared to that of his son going to court to declare him incompetent.
Laide is in the hospital with Fred. Fred is pacing up & down & she tells him to cool down as the doctor will soon be back with the scan result. She tells Fred about meeting Sheila at the office & that Sheila slapped her & she retruned the favour. Phillip apologizes for Sheila slapping her but asks her to understand Sheila’s position. Sheila is going through the stress of dealing with polygamy, which she never planned for. Laide complains that she is not getting the support she needs from Fred. Fred tells her that he is marrying her but she thinks that it is not enough. He tells her to lay off it as he is also struggling with a son that wants to declare him legally incompetent to handle his affairs. She cries at the lack of support. Even if he marries her, she will not be accepted by his family. Laide asks Fred not to lead her on. She does not want to marry him & be left in the lurch. He tells her not to worry, that he will take care of things & also his family. 
The doctor returns & welcomes Fred & asks of his relationship with Laide. Laide asks whether they know each other? The doctor tells her that Fred is a long-time patron of the hospital. Laide introduces herself as his wife. The doctor knows Sheila & asks of Laide’s position. Laide confirms that she is Fred’s second-wife-to-be. Fred looks like he  is about to choke on a large object.
Angela meets Titan who apologizes for the issue with him & his father & thatnjs Angela for the drink they gave him. She asks him to allow her give him a pitch on the project. He agrees. She tells him not to allow personal issues to stop him from going ahead with the project. He thinks that personal issues are important & Angela agrees. She asks him to see the project as an opportunity to break into a new horizon, but she wants it to be his decision. He tells her that he has tours already lined up & will have to re-arrange things to fit in the project. He asks for time to think about it & get back to her.
Tare is in Telema’s house to pick her up. She is not packed yet. Tare is surprised that she has not packed yet & asks if she went through with the plan. She did, but Kwame refused to sign the papers. He called Brenda himself & asked Telema to talk to her. Tare asks her if she spoke with Brenda, but she said no. Tare asks her what she did to Kwame that will make him to go to jail rather than lose her. She tells Tare that Kwame does not like to lose. Whatever happens, she needs to get her things & leave him before he casts his evil spell on her & get her to sleep with him. She sees Telema’s expression & asks her to confirm that she did not. She says that she needed to get to his phone. Tare asks her to get her things so that they leave before she needs to get to his phone again. The last thing they need now is a kittle Kwame growing inside her.
Fred comes to visit Phillip. He wants to talk but Phillip does not have anything to say if Fred is still marrying Laide. Fred tells him that he knows what is worrying Phillip. He tells Phillip that his inheritance as the first son will in no way be affected by Laide’s son or any other child. Phillip asks whether he plans to get Laide pregnant again? That’s not what he is talking about. Phillip confirms that after Brenda, he does not discount the possibility of another child coming up but that is not the main issue. He does not like the way Fred is treating his wife. Fred asks what the relationship between Phillip & Sheila is? They could not stand each other before, but now they are working together against him. Is there something he should know?
