Black Ink Crew Season 6 Episode 12 Recap: The Book of Genesis


‘Black Ink Crew’ Recap: Genesis Breaks Down to Ceaser + Nikki Gives Birth

By  | 

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.

They kiss.

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

    Sky has some nerve calling anyone else a liar. Anyway I feel for Genesis. I just want to give him a big hug. He is so hurt about everything.

    I really thought he was going to swing on Cease. But turns out all he wanted to do is be heard.

    A premature baby at six pounds? Nikki and Ohsh-t storyline is so damn fake. They were clearly living in Atlanta together and she got pregnant. He knew and always knew. He just came back to New York for a storyline and check. They never broke up.

    What I took from this is Sky is the one that has to make things right. And all he really wants is for her to listen to him and admit she didn’t make the best decisions. He wants her to have accountability. And I think that’s fair.

    Very good episode. I think next week will be lackluster.

  7. Ughhhhhhhh

    March 8, 2018 at 1:00 pm

    My heart aches for Genesis. He is hurting and the one person who can make it right don’t give a d*mn and on tv prancing around like a fool and using him for pity when she should be trying to heal her sons pain or work towards it. She’s foul and got nerve to be blaming Dutchess or her BD. Her stans are sick. The ones on her side probably got kids they leave wit any and everybody while they thot around at the clubs and running the streets tryna be popular while the kids growing up without them.

    It almost seems like Genesis does want a relationship wth Sky but he just needs her to tell him she was wrong to go about things the way she did. But for some reason, Sky can’t bring herself to admit that. She has way too many excuses for him and that makes him angry.

    Wow. I can see why he is angry..You mom gives you up at 6. They had a bond. I understand that she couldn’t take care of him but she on TV acting a fool spending all her money on surgery and didnt bother to check on them. She lied about the twins thing. This is just a mess. She is a mess

    This was so sad to watch how anybody can stan for Sky I cannot understand. She made it seem like she gave them boys up like they were babies or even toddlers like he was 6 that makes it worst to me. You raised this child bonded with this child for 6 years and gave him and his brother away. That’s some disgraceful type ish smh.

    So I guess by the end of the season Genesis decides he doesn’t want a relationship with Sky. Well she can’t do anything but respect his decision and see if he changes his mind over time. But he did make some good points. Sky makes herself out to the victim and she’s technically not.
