‘Black Ink Crew’ Recap: Genesis Breaks Down to Ceaser + Nikki Gives Birth
Richard is on his way to Atlanta to check on Nikki.
When he gets off the plane, he rushes to be with her.
In a green screen interview, he says that Nikki called him before his flight and said that she was released from the hospital. She was also given pills to stop the contractions.
He gets to her house and gives her a big hug when she answers the door.
She tells him she’s okay and their baby girl is fine.
“I was so scared that the baby was going to be premature…” – Nikki
“When you called last night, I didn’t know what to do.” – Richard
Richard tells her he’s going to be there for her and she apologizes for not telling him about the baby sooner.
She tells him they can’t sleep together for health reasons.
“Your mouth works. I’m just saying.” – Richard
Back at the shop, Cease says Richard said Nikki had a false alarm. Sky doesn’t believe Nikki is actually pregnant and says she has a history of being a liar.
The producers then flash back to scenes of Nikki being exposed for lying.
Young Bae comes to the shop and announces that she’s getting married to Rob. She flashes her ring and everyone is excited.
She tells them she wants a shot-gun wedding in two weeks.
Everyone thinks that is too soon to tie the knot. But Bae says the weight gain from the pregnancy is an issue.
“I don’t want to be a fat bride.” – Bae
Donna suggests all the ladies in the shop go with her to pick out her wedding dress. She agrees to this.
Cease and Sky clash.
He tells her he thinks he has a plan to reach out to her son Genesis. He wants to make sure he is comfortable and doesn’t feel ambushed.
Cease says he can make sure he has a very enjoyable trip to New York.
“I changed my mind. I don’t want you to talk to Genesis.” – Sky
In a green screen interview, Sky says she changed her mind because she doesn’t want things to go left when Genesis sees Cease.
“It may complicate things even more.” – Sky
She says they should postpone his plans. Cease thinks this is a bad call because meeting him will help things. So he asks her to really think about it.
“Right now is not the time.” – Sky
Cease presses her more to agree to the meeting.
Sky gets mad and says she’s leaving because he’s not listening to her and not respecting her feelings.
She walks out the shop.
“Are you f*cking serious?” – Sky
“Sky! What the f*ck?” – Cease
Walt walks out on his date.
Walt goes on a date with Ashley, the woman he met through Jadah.
They meet at a bar and she shows him her pet turtle, Sophia. She says she didn’t have a babysitter and the turtle is sick.
Walt thinks this is weird.
Ashley lets the turtle loose on the pool table.
In a green screen interview, Walt says Ashley is fine so he’s willing to overlook her bringing the turtle to their date.
The turtle ends up on the floor after she falls. Ashley tells Walt to sing to it and he watches her kiss the turtle. Ashley then tries to kiss him after and he turns her down.
After Ashley asks Walt to keep an eye on Sophia while she goes to the restroom, he decides to leave after making sure the turtle is safe in a pool triangle on the pool table.
Back at the shop, Sky tries to make peace with Cease by bringing beers to the shop.
She feels like she could have been more understanding the previous night.
Richard calls to update the group.
He tells them Nikki was given meds to slow down the contractions.
“She could have the baby any day now.” – Richard
The group feels like Nikki is lying but they keep it to themselves.
The group learns from Richard that he and Nikki are back together. Cease is annoyed but wishes them well. But he goes off in a green screen interview.
“This is the worst decision you have ever made in your entire life.” – Cease
Cease tells everyone that Richard is an idiot. Sky then says that if Nikki is pregnant, the baby isn’t Richard’s.
After the conversation wraps up, Cease asks to speak to Sky alone in the back.
He tells her he contacted Genesis to see if they could talk. Genesis agreed.
“What the f*ck bro, why did you go behind my back?” – Sky
This upsets Sky.
“Let me at least try. Can I get that?” – Cease
Cease says that he will meet up with Genesis and have some drinks. He wants Sky to close the chapter in her life with his help.
“Fine. Knock yourself out.” – Sky
Bae tries on wedding dresses.
She tells the sales lady what style of dress she’s looking for.
The ladies don’t care for the first dress.
They don’t like the second dress either.
But they end up loving the third one.
Everyone gets on her when she tells them she hasn’t told Rob that they are getting married in two weeks. They call her crazy and laugh at her. She laughs too.
Nikki and Richard are in the hospital because her water broke.
She gives birth as Richard cheers her on.
They have a baby girl.
“She’s beautiful.” – Richard
After 30 hours of pain, Nova is born at six pounds.
He tells Nikki he is so proud of her.
“I can’t believe I’m a father again.” – Richard
In a green screen interview, he says the whole situation has brought him and Nikki “back together.”
While at the convenience store, Bae tells Rob they are getting married in two weeks because she doesn’t want to be a “fat bride.”
Rob says no and that doing so would require a lot from them. He also wants a “big, real wedding.”
“It’s not gonna happen.” – Rob
Bae gets upset and says “this conversation is not over.”
Cease meets Genesis.
Sky rides with him to the meeting. She says she’s nervous.
“I got this.” – Cease
In a green screen interview, Sky says maybe Genesis needs to talk to somebody neutral and not have his mind “poisoned” by his father and Dutchess.
Cease walks into the restaurant and sits down at the table with Genesis.
He tells Genesis he’s glad he agreed to meet him.
In a green screen interview, he says Genesis reminds him of Sky already, as he looks ready to pounce on him.
After Cease says he wants to build a relationship with him, Genesis says he doesn’t want to get to know him. He also says that Cease isn’t the person he needs to be talking to and Sky is.
He says “people need to start being real” before he can have a relationship with Sky.
Genesis then asks if Cease would give up his daughter for adoption. Cease says no. He then explains that everything Sky does in her life has been in preparation to finally meet her sons.
“For 15 years?” – Genesis
Cease says he just wants to level up with him, and Genesis then moves the table from between them.
“Hey, now hold on!” – Cease
Genesis says Sky raised him for six years and then gave him up.
“And never looked back. I can’t forget that sh*t.” – Genesis.
He starts crying. Cease calls him angry.
Genesis says he’s not angry but hurt. He says he was never going to hit Sky.
“She ain’t talk to me in 15 years.” – Genesis
He says he watched Sky get all the plastic surgery done on the show while he was in jai. He feels like she doesn’t care about him because she never picked up the phone to call him.
Cease says he has to talk to Sky and get a resolution.
“15 years. I just want to know the explanation.” – Genesis
“Well let’s do it.” – Cease
He asks Genesis if he wants to try to talk to Sky again, but Genesis says he’s not sure.
“I don’t know.” – Genesis
