His mom wants him to marry a young, fertile, Hausa girl as his first wife. She wants grandchildren. And, as she explains to the camera, she’s afraid of Usman moving away forever. Meanwhile, Usman tells the camera that he hopes that agreeing to this meeting will help convince his mother to approve his marriage to Kimberly. 2Fareedet is only 18 years oldHer mother explains that she wants her daughter to marry Usman because he is responsible and mature. While he is certainly older than Fareedet, many viewers see him as a goofy and carefree man. But apparently his honest work and lack of drug addiction have made him a veritable prize in certain circles. 3Usman and Fareedet get to speak one-on-oneHe tells her that he was nervous about showing up, but was taken aback by her beauty. Meanwhile, Fareedet admits that she knows who Usman is, hears his music often on social media, and likes the idea of him becoming her husband. 4Are they compatible?Fareedet says that she would like to have children, as their families expect, but wants “no more than four” kids. Usman tells her that this is very close to his number, actually. 5Speaking of kids …Usman makes sure that Fareedet knows that he is in love with Kimberly. He notes that he would ideally like to marry Kimberly first, and later marry Fareedet. 6She’s not so keen on that ideaCiting his mother’s issues with him marrying Kimberly, Fareedet suggests that Usman should marry her first. But Usman notes that he knows Kimberly better and already loves her. He hopes that he and Fareedet will have feelings between them in time, but right now, he already loves Kimberly. 7But he does want those digitsWe don’t meen Fareedet’s gorgeously painted fingers. We mean her number. Usman saves her as a contact in his phone so that they can later speak. 8The verdict is inUsman describes Fareedet as “okay,” noting that he didn’t find any fault with her. That’s not glowing praise but it’s not an insult. 9But seriously, momUsman emphasizes to his mother, Fadimatu, that he loves Kimberly. These are real feelings that he already has. He has abided by his mother’s wishes by meeting this girl, and he’s clearly hoping that she will meet him halfway. 10Back at the hotelWe’re avoiding being judgy of Kimberly’s hotel room because, honestly, she’s not just on an extended trip — she’s also on reality TV, and needs more products and clothes than someone normally would on a trip like this. Kimberly is still on edge, as anyone would be in her shoes, when he returns to tell her how things went. 11Full disclosure, he did not wear the engagement ringIt would be rude and confrontational to wear it if Fareedet understood its significance. And, he explains to the camera, she might understand what it means from watching TV and movies. 12But Usman has his own ways of reassuring KimberlyHe invites her over to come hug him. The two embrace, all smiles. It’s a sweet moment. 13Later … The two are having one more meeting with Usman’s mother and his elder brother, Mohammed. Previously, Kimberly impressed Faruq. Mohammed has been more receptive to her presence in the past. But they are nervous. Usman is not going to go against his mother’s wishes. 14Just to checkUsman has no actual complaints about Fareedet, but seeing her didn’t make his feelings for Kimberly evaporate. He confirms as much to his mother. 15She and Mohammed hand him … a contractThe document, which reads like an informal prenup, is essentially Fadimatu’s conditional consent for Usman to marry Kimberly — as his first wife. They can’t have each other’s property, and Usman has to return to Nigeria 4 times a year (after moving to the US) in order to see his family and potentially marry a young Hausa woman. But this is a nod of approval. 16This is her blessing!Kimberly and Fadimatu exchange smiles. Usman cries out in celebration. Fadimatu explains to the cameras that, to her, Kimberly really showed that she was both respectful and that she loves Usman. 17Angela Deem and Michael IlesanmiWhile smoking in her hotel room (not the first time that we’ve watched her do this), she is furiously packing her things. She is preparing to leave. But then she receives a call from her husband, Michael. 18Michael begs her to meet upHe doesn’t want their marriage to end. And he doesn’t want Angela to leave Nigeria on bad terms. She does agree to meet up again, in person. 19Oh no, why?For whatever reason, Michael sincerely hopes that his marriage to Angela works out. Some viewers think that he’s a scammer. Others think that it’s stockholm syndrome, with Angela’s years of emotional and verbal abuse having worn down his psyche. It’s always possible that it’s both. Anyway, Michael is now prepared to meet Angela’s ludicrous demand: he deletes his Instagram. 20Michael knows that he’s letting the terrorists win, so to speakBy meeting Angela’s unreasonable demand, he is once again letting her get her way. Just like she always does when she throws her frightening tantrums. 21Angela also demands to go through Michael’s phoneShe is hardly the first abuser to insist that her victim have no privacy. She begins to scroll through, insisting that Michael list the women whose contact info he has saved in his phone. All of them are family except for one, Angelle. 22“I will always be in your f–king business”Like countless toxic partners before her, Angela furiously tells Michael that she will “always” be in his “f–king business.” She, who publicly used social media to flirt with a man, doesn’t wish to allow Michael to have any friend who is a woman. 23Like a maniac, she calls the womanAngela calls Angelle, subjecting her to a fate that we would not wish upon our worst enemies: having a conversation with Angela Deem. It’s not just a call to hear the woman’s voice. 24It’s an interrogationShe demands to know why this woman is a contact in Michael’s phone. The baffled woman explains that she and Michael are friends. Angela insists that this woman needs to find “her own” friend. Truly unhinged behavior. Very sensibly, Angelle simply hangs up on Angela. 25Angela continues to have a normal oneAs she often does to manipulate Michael, she transitions from yelling and screaming to simply sobbing, forcing the person whom she has been berating to now rush to her comfort. 26You hate to see itMichael falls right for it, going to embrace his wife and reassure her that he loves her. 27But Michael does know what this meansHe is continuing to allow this toxic person to control every aspect of his life, giving him no choices or independence. 28“It’s gonna be hell”Michael knows that things will stay this way even when they go to the US. So he hopes that he can find something else on which to stand his ground so that he can make some of his own choices. Good luck, buddy. 29Bilal Hazziez and Shaeeda SweenThey find some very polite, enthusiastic ways to share that New York City is loud and smells like urine. Many major cities of the world do — especially Paris. But they’re here. While Shaeeda hopes that this trip can involve the two conceiving, Bilal is adamantly unwilling to move forward on that. And he’s still dragging his heels about her yoga studio. Business as usual. 30But …This trip will involve meeting Eutris. She is Shaeeda’s best friend. And because Eutris is a very direct, outspoken person, Shaeeda is excited to have someone in her corner when she speaks to Bilal. Bilal’s habit of redirecting conversations using manipulation tactics makes it difficult to speak to him about things, but perhaps Eutris could help cut through the noise. 31“I don’t want this day to end”Shaeeda sings the praises of having the “perfect rose” and the “perfect guy.” But when she brings up the desire to conceive a child (as the gynecologist recommended they try sooner rather than later), Bilal once again changes the subject. 32Eutris!Viewers have “met” Eutris before, because she has video chatted with Shaeeda. Eutris, in person, really feels like a high powered professional from a show like Black Mirror. Is it because of her accent? Maybe. But she also styles herself very well. 33Eutris has concernsContrary to what previews had suggested, she doesn’t come on very strong. But she is very direct. She admits that she wishes that she had at least gotten to meet Bilal before he and Shaeeda married. After all, Shaeeda is her best friend. Apparently, this rubs Bilal the wrong way. 34Bilal immediately goes into defensive modeEutris has barely asked anything yet, but Bilal is visibly bristling. He calls her nosy, which sure sounds like an insult. And, to Eutris, it comes across as even worse, because they’ve only just met. 35Shaeeda, meanwhle, seems uncomfortableAnd Eutris worries that her friend is overlooking some glaring red flags in her husband. Well, yes. 36Shaeeda tries to break the tensionShe reenacts the “has anyone tried the chicken?” meme, but with crackers. Unfortunately, it does not bring the conflict to a grinding hault as she had hoped. 37To Eutris, Bilal’s defensive behavior seems suspiciousWhat exactly is he so worried about her asking about and discussing that he’d rather turn the conversation into a war of insults rather than a normal talk? 38Even Shaeeda isn’t sure what has Bilal so unhappyWe’ll likely see more about this confrontation as time goes on. But let’s be clear — Bilal feels like Eutris is intruding upon his marriage. But his ex-wife, Shahidah, drove to Shaeeda’s home and confronted her about getting a prenup right there in her kitchen. There is truly no comparison. 39Elizabeth Potthast and Andrei CastravetStill in Arizona on their family trip, Libby and Andrei have taken little Ellie to a petting zoo. 40Chuck is SO excited for a new grandchildBut he has real concerns about how Libby announced her pregnancy on social media. He and Stefan (Andrei’s dad) knew before the Instagram post, but Libby’s mom and sisters — and estranged brother — found out when fans did. This, he fears, could cause lasting problems. 41Chuck has an ideaHe suggests that they try family therapy. Libby agrees to it, tentatively. She’ll attend one session. If it goes well, she might do more. But if it turns into a bitter an toxic maelstrom of insults without accountability, then that will be it. 42Libby tells Andrei about the planHe’s not familiar with family therapy. His suggestion is just that they stop interacting with Libby’s extended family, except for Chuck. Andrei credits his Moldovan culture for why he doesn’t see the value of therapy, but Libby wants to be on good terms — especially since Andrei could end up facing deportation if they get bad news in the mail. 43Jenny Slatten and Sumit SinghJenny had a fall while standing on a stool. Now in her 60s, she can’t just shake off something like that. Sumit came home to take her to urgent care, but she’s in pain again. Fortunately, no bones were broken, but she seems to have torn ligaments. 44Men, huh?Okay, we’re having a laugh at Sumit’s expense, but somehow he makes Jenny’s injury and treatment all about him and his fear of needles. No one can control a phobia, but you can control whether or not you try to make your wife’s injury all about you. 45But Jenny, arm in a sling, feels up to shopping laterShe wants to buy a ring. Her daughter, Christina, and Christina’s wife, Jen, are coming to visit. It’s bee about two years, and Jenny is going to buy a gold ring for Christina. She likes that a lot of gold jewelry in India has a higher karat value than is standard in the US, and wants to get her something nice. The ring that she selects costs only a little over $100 USD, which sounds very reasonable. 46Sumit notes that this is a cultural valueHe has bought gold for Jenny. Sumit doesn’t go into detail, but he says that wearing gold is considered good in India. Not just a sign of wealth, necessarily, but generally positive. 47Christina and Jen arrive!Jenny is visibly overjoyed at seeing her daughter in person for the first time in ages. She of course also hugs Jen, and Sumit hugs them both. 48Sumit made foodHe and the three women all sit down to eat. Christina loves her ring. But they obviously have things to talk about. 49They talk about the family situationSumit relays how his family has been even worse since he married Jenny. Christina expresses a desire that Sumit do what he can to put Jenny and their marriage first, which is a sensible position to take about your mom’s well being. Even if you haven’t seen what Sahna and Anil are like. 50But Sumit thinks that Christina should stay out of itFirst of all, I’m not sure if telling a gay woman from America that she can’t imagine what it’s like to have someone disapprove of her relationship is the right choice, my dude. Like, Jenny loves her daughter, but homophobia can come from many sources. Sumit and Jenny’s story has resonated with many viewers for just that reason. And secondly, considering the extreme interference of Sumit’s family in their lives, how is this not Christina’s business? 51Jovi Dufren and Yara ZayaThe two are on a “date night” while Mylah spends time with Olga, Yara’s mom. But it’s not just the two of them. Jovi’s friend, Talmadge, joins them at the table. He’s an old drinking and travel buddy of Jovi’s. 52Yara doesn’t often like Jovi’s friendsBut she does use the opportunity to playfully dig into Jovi’s past. Jovi did go out with some other Ukrainian women while he was in Ukraine, which he apparently didn’t mention to her. They both have pasts, obviously. That’s how marriage works (unless you’re raised in a cult, usually), and they’re both adults who know that. 53Talmadge has issues with Yara, thoughHe heard about her window-shopping for apartments here in Prague, and he feels like it was effed up that she did so without telling Jovi. But she did tell Jovi beforehand. Jovi seems to also feel like this was behind his back, but she told him before she went — and invited him along. 54Speaking of inviting people, Jovi wants Talmadge to join them when they go to GermanyYara says that it’s okay, but grudgingly. It’s not just that she wants to spend this time with her husband. It’s that they’re going to Germany to see her friend, who is a refugee fleeing from the invasion of Ukraine. It’s not a fun vacation.
