Tania Maduro and Syngin Colchester
Tania broke her foot during the five months since their wedding, so she is using a wheelchair ... and Syngin, thanks to an expedited work visa, will have to be the primary breadwinner. That's not fun for either of them.
Elizabeth naturally goes to dad for help
To no one's surprise, Elizabeth asks her dad to foot the bill. Chuck reminds her that, at the very least, it should be Andrei asking him. But no, Andrei is a coward, so it's Elizabeth once again asking her dad. She brings on the tears and he says yes.
Syngin had hoped to relocate
They had been making plans to move to a warmer climate, with Syngin admitting "I'm just scared I can get stuck in Connecticut forever." There are worse places to live than Connecticut. For example, any place with a warmer climate. But that's beside the point ...
Syngin working isn't an easy topic
According to Syngin's former boss (Syngin is a bartender), he used to drink and even "throw chairs" on the job. Somehow, he still had that job. Yikes.
Will Syngin drink MORE as he starts work?
Tania is worried "Don't act like my concerns aren't valid. It's kind of gotten a little worse since being in the United States."
Syngin doesn't love that
"I'll have a f**king beer at 10 a.m. if I want to have a f**king beer at 10 a.m.," he insists. Tania counters: "But you always want to have a beer!" Tania says back. "I just don't want this to be a repeat of the past. That's it."
Syngin is feeling hurt
"It's frustrating to me that my own wife doesn't take me seriously," he laments, "and thinks I'm going to screw up again." This conflict seems like one between two people who genuinely love each other, which is more than we can say for a lot of conflicts on this show.
Angela Deem and Michael Ilesanmi
Angela was in the US, visiting her doctor and hoping that she can get pregnant. She gets told that the single "egg" that a Nigerian doctor claimed to see was most likely a cyst, that she needs to be screened for uterine cancer, and that her chances of getting pregnant naturally are "essentially zero." Scary stuff that was important for her to know.
That's not all
Angela stopped by to get a blessing from her mother to marry Michael. Her mom, Glenda, has had cancer five times.
Glenda gives her blessing
Reluctantly, she signals her approval, while Angela has second thoughts about leaving for an extended period of time, given her mother's fragile health.
Larissa was barely in this episode, except to joke about working as a stripper with her Green Card and getting set up on a blind date by her friends. On social media, she expressed her fury over barely being in the episode at all in contrast with Colt's excessive screentime.
