Rating: 3,5/5

Lalisha shakes her head at Akissa in the kitchen. She tells Akissa that Daron has to leave now. She can’t be in the same room with him. Akissa tells her to at least talk to him. Lalisha wants to know who’s side she’s on. Akissa puts her hands up and says she’s on her side. However, Daron seems apologetic.

Linnie looks up as Lalisha walks back into the room. Q says they’ll go home. He needs to use the phone, though. Lalisha tells him to stay and that it doesn’t matter. She turns on the television and doesn’t say a word for a few hours.

Daron slices some peppers and says it was a bad idea coming here. Akissa pats him on the back and tells him to give her some time. Q asks Akissa if he should any more seasoning to the sauce. Akissa adds some spices into it. Daron says he hopes Lalisha will eat dinner with them. Linnie giggles, says she’s going to have eat sometime. She adds there is no way she’s going to drive back into the city for food.

After lunch, Akissa says they are all going to take a walk together. On the walk, Daron asks Lalisha if they can talk in private. He explains to her that he didn’t really even read the note. He never responded to the other young woman. Lalisha asks how he got the note in the first place. He said Mike gave it to him and that it thought it was about work. He wouldn’t have shown her the note if there was something explicit on it. Lalisha nods and says it makes sense. Daron holds her close as they walk.
