Black Ink Crew Recap: Nikki Has a Miscarriage + Sky and Donna Clash
Kitty is icy with Cease.
At the 125th shop, Kitty is giving Cease a hard time because she’s still upset he went out on a date with Sky’s friend Allison, so he has some flowers delivered to her. However, she doesn’t want to let him off easily.
He tells her that he and Allison decided they are better off as friends, so he’s interested in seeing what’s in store for them.
Nikki suffers a miscarriage.
Richard makes it to the hospital and learns that Nikki lost the baby.
“Now that our miracle is gone, it’s devastating.” – Richard
Sky shares the good news but Donna isn’t feeling it.
Sky tells the gang that Cease is opening up a new shop in Atlanta and she will be the manager. She’s moving to Atlanta soon, and Donna is salty.
“I can be happy for Sky if she wasn’t acting like a screaming banshee right now.” – Donna
Donna eventually says that she doesn’t want Sky to leave because she feels like she is the only one who appreciates her.
She is tired of feeling overlooked and unappreciated at the shop.
Richard updates Cease on Nikki’s miscarriage.
He tells Cease that she was having a lot of pain and lost the baby at the hospital. When Cease asks what he can do to show support during the emotional time, he suggests ordering Edible Arrangements.
Kitty and Cease get back on good terms.
Kitty invites Cease to her home for some wine, and he’s uneasy of if she is really trying to move forward or get even with him.
“Our chemistry is undeniable and I want to see where things go.” – Kitty to Cease
After some hesitation from Cease, they kiss and make up.
Lalo comes around.
Although Lalo originally told Melody that he doesn’t want her to become manager at Black Ink and prefers she becomes a stay at home mother, he now supports her choice.
They then give each other matching tattoos.
Donna tells Cease Sky didn’t deserve her promotion.
When Cease shows up to 113th, Donna confronts him about promoting Sky as the manager of the new shop in Atlanta.
She starts off by telling him he has “doo doo breath” in front of everyone, and Cease gets so annoyed that he silently ponders firing her, again.
Donna tells him that he only gave Sky the job because she hooked him up with Allison and he promotes women if they sleep with him. In Sky’s case, he promoted her because she hooked him up with Allison.
Cease points out that Donna wouldn’t say any of this to Sky’s face and he decides to leave before he ends up firing Donna.
Sky later shows up with Cease and confronts Donna about her comments.
When Sky asks Donna if she doesn’t feel she deserves to be manager of the Atlanta shop, Donna pleads the fifth and Sky reminds her that she’s the one who sneaked her back in the shop and helped her get her job back.
“F-ck you Donna. You’re dead to me.” – Sky to Donna
