Angela is busy looking for something under the table in her sitting room when Masters enters unannounced. Did we lose something? He asks. She jumps up & tells him that he should have at least knocked. He tells her that it is time for them to finish their talk on choices, now that she has had time to think of it. He gives her an envelope containing documents confirming that she now owns 49% of Odyssey Pictures. She is understandably stunned!
Maami is tying gele while an unhappy TTK pushes her away. TTK calls Sheila to ask if she invited Maami. Sheila says yes, that it was after she finished her delicious pepper soup.

TTK tells her not to disgrace herself when she gets there. She should not speak English but Maami says that she will speak small small.
Angela is shocked. She asks Masters if that is the revenge he is talking about? She asked how he forged signatures. & he tells her it is an irrelevant question. You have been playing adult games but as pawns in other people’s hands, he tells her. It is now time for you to crush all those that have been making your life difficult. He asks her to think of the effect her ownership of those shares will have on Brenda, Amaka Okoh & Sheila? She can crush them all within one year with a little imagination.
Zaza welcomes Kwame to the office & he asks after the others. They went out she said, he asks if she knew where they went to? She does not but they mentioned Joan. Kwame asks if she is sure? She says they were not talking to her but she thinks that is what she heard. Kwame takes a call, & spins a confused Zaza around in a dance before abandoning her & going upstairs.

Masters comes back to meet an Angela that is now properly dressed. He asks if she has digested everything. She asks how he has gone from trying to kill her to dropping this on her laps? Irrelevant question, he says. She asks if he spent time staying away so that he can plan how to make things good for her, or is he trying to set her to kill all his enemies? He says that she is not his enemy. During his hiatus, he thought about her a lot & was going to kill her as no one who has ever harmed him escaped punishment. He thought of hanging her upside down from a tree, or giving her cyanide, even though that will be quite painless. He had people watching her every step & others checking her background. He eventually decided that she is different. She is still confused & he joins her on the settee and held her face in his hands. When you gaze too long into an abyss, the abyss gazes back at you, he tells her before getting up & leaving.

She tries to speak in English, but he answers her in Yoruba. Maami could not believe that he speaks her language!
Angela meets Sheila and Sankey. They ask her for the ear rings. She says that she cannot find them. That’s a lot of money gone down the drain, Brenda hisses. Angela tells her that she can never pass off a moment to rub it in. Sankey plays mediator and asks Angela after the recorder? She has not seen it either. As the thing looks like a lipstick, she may have thrown it out with the other contents of her bag! Brenda does not look convinced. Sankey suggests that Brenda orders another set, if they are still intent on continuing this investigation. When that comes, they will not wait for Masters to slip. She tells Angela that she will have to drag it out of him. Angela asks that they tell her when the new set comes & leaves. Brenda looks puzzled.
Cosmas serves Fred a drink & he asks if they will not take a little time to rest? Maami says it will not take long any more. The new gele she tied is called flying boat she tells Fred. He interprets for Sheila. He tells Maami that Salewa’s dad is his brother. She says that she was told but says that seeing how comfortable he is, she wonders why he did not help Dan to avoid prison? He explains to a worried Sheila that Maami is asking after Dan. He explains to her that Dan’s case is in court & they are praying for a good outcome.
