‘Black Ink Crew’ Recap: Teddy Threatens to Fire Tati After Her New Boo is Revealed
Sky gives Ceaser an update.
Mike continues to press Puma about Krystal. He wants her back at the shop working. Puma finally gives in and says that she can return but she can’t start any drama. They then discuss the other Crystal and her situation with Kitty at the party. Donna says that she still thinks Ceaser and Kitty are friends with benefits. And she’s convinced Kitty is still in love with Ceaser.
Ceaser and Sky catch up. Sky apologizes for missing the grand opening due to a scratched cornea. But she has some bad news. She tells Cease that her boutique was closed down. It hurts that her shop failed. She breaks down in tears. But Ceaser consoles her and tells her to let her failure motivate her to succeed in the future. He says, “It’s just a stepping stone.”
Teddy finds out about Tati and Jemz.
Alex returns to the shop. Everyone greets him and he’s happy to be back. Not too long after, Krystal returns. Minutes later, Donna tells the gang that she saw Tati and Jemz making out recently. Tati isn’t happy that Donna put her on the spot but she admits that she does have a thing with Jemz.
Teddy gets mad and says that Tati shouldn’t sleep with “the help.” Tati says that Teddy is the help and Teddy says that he’ll fire Tati like he did Jadah.
Richard visits Puma.
Walt tells the gang that he is pursuing a comedy career. And he’s going on a tour. His first stop will be Cleveland, Donna’s hometown. Donna wants to go to the show and bring Alex so he can meet her parents.
Richard aka O’sh*t returns. He and his wife Nikki go to dinner with Puma and Quani. Richard has been living in Atlanta running his own shop there. Although he’s happy with his new life, Puma at least wants Richard to hash things out with Cease. He wants everyone on the same page and getting along again. But Nikki isn’t sure Cease would really be receptive of the new Richard.
Cease doesn’t want Teddy to fire Jemz.
Teddy comes to Cease to complain about Tati and Jemz. He wants to fire Jemz and says that Cease should understand because he never went behind Cease’s back and slept with any of his exes, including Dutchess’ “slut a*s .”
Cease doesn’t want to fire Jemz because Jemz painted the portrait of Cease hanging up in the 113th shop. So he tells Teddy to calm down and Teddy storms off.
Puma tries to convince Cease to forgive Richard.
The gang goes out to dinner. Puma takes Ceaser outside to talk about Richard. In a green screen interview, Cease says he’s not sure he can be cool with Richard because he’s been hanging around Dutchess. After Cease goes back inside the restaurant, Richard pulls up and Puma asks him why he took a picture with Dutchess at his shop in Atlanta. Richard says Dutchess came by for a tattoo and they took pictures. He doesn’t understand why that would upset Cease. So Puma suggests they hold off on Richard talking to Cease.
Jess joins the gang at dinner. Walt tells her that his comedy tour will last for a month and she’s fine with this. Cease suggests that most of the gang goes to Cleveland for the show.
Tati and Teddy clash.
Sky toasts to Walter and then tells everyone that Kitty is sleeping with Ryan from 9Mag. Kitty says she’s not even going to address gossip. And Cease says he has nothing to say.
Tati then changes the topic and calls out Teddy for having an issue with her being with Jemz. As they begin to argue, Teddy threatens to fire her.
