Trina and Von tie the knot.
The episode begins with Trina and Von’s wedding about to start. Trina’s sisters are holding her train when Traci trips over her pants and a plant.

The ceremony goes off without a hitch.
The couple even received a standing ovation from everyone in attendance. After the ceremony, Traci’s talking to Michael Sr. sensitive about tripping while holding Trina’s train and expecting her sisters to talk trash about it. Sean comes over, directing Michael Sr. to the rest of the wedding party. Traci’s salty about Sean doing this as she feels Sean’s always poking his head in the family business.
Despite this, Michael Sr. gets up to join the wedding party and leaves Mrs. Wanda with Traci still venting about her sisters.
Traci goes off.
Another left turn occurs when Michael Sr. sings to Trina, surprising the sisters and Evelyn. Traci joins her dad and helps him out. When Traci returns to her seat, Oliviah (Kevin Jr.’s girlfriend) tells Traci her sisters were laughing at her. This clearly angers Traci. Traci tells Miss Wanda that her sisters are “foul” for laughing at her.
Towanda tries to go over to talk to Traci but Traci isn’t having it. In fact, Traci tells Towanda, “shut the f**k up” and “f**k you.” Kevin and Sean come over to try and calm them down.
As this goes on, Von’s brother is toasting the newly wedded couple. Meanwhile, Kevin is talking to Towanda about what transpired as Traci walks to Trina’s dressing room. The sisters then head back there and Traci goes off on them once again. This is where the alleged altercation between Tamar and Traci takes place. Trina and Von overhear Traci going off. However, they decide to ignore the commotion.
Next, Towanda and Tamar talk and learn what set Traci off. Both agree Oliviah caused the ruckus. Apparently, they were laughing at their dad singing the wrong lyrics.
Eventually, the cake was cut as Kevin and Traci appeared to leave and the reception party continued without any more trouble.
An altercation between Tamar and Traci is confirmed.
A few days after the wedding, Towanda invites Trina over for a chat before Trina and Von head out on their honeymoon. Of course, they’re talking about the wedding. The commotion at the wedding comes up and Towanda explains her side. Apparently, the sisters were laughing about how their dad was off-tempo. Towanda tells Trina that although Kevin’s girlfriend Olivah said they were laughing at Traci, Miss Wanda told Traci they weren’t.
Next, Towanda tells Trina that Traci and Tamar got into a physical altercation in Trina’s dressing room. Trina says she understands how Traci was feeling about the laughing and her sensitivity to the allegations. Towanda then says Oliviah was out of line for even telling Traci anything about the laughter. Meanwhile, Michael Sr. and Michael Jr. are waiting on Traci at a restaurant. While they wait, they talk about what happened at the wedding and how they’re worried about Traci. Eventually, Traci shows up and expects to be questioned.
But before discussing the wedding, they do express their feelings regarding the passing of Michael Jr’s daughter Lauren.
Next, Traci tells them how she felt about everything that happened and her brother suggests to talk to somebody about her anger regarding her sisters. Traci seemingly agrees.
Later on, Toni’s in the dressing room for a pick-up shoot for her music video. Tamar stops by to watch as Toni’s concerned about her health amid the pandemic. Toni has Lupus and is at high risk for infection. Meanwhile, Tamar’s birthday trip was canceled.
Despite her concerns, Toni soldered through. In the dressing room, Tamar’s spraying everyone with sanitizer. Toni then notices Tamar’s voice is raspy and has a sore throat. But Toni’s not too concerned as Tamar’s heavy with the sanitizer.
Traci sees a therapist.
Meanwhile, Traci takes Michael Jr’s advice and meets with a therapist. They first talk about her niece and then the commotion at the wedding. Traci explains how Tamar apparently got too close to her in Trina’s dressing space, further confirming the altercation. She then explains she’s “better seen than not heard.”
Flashbacks then play from the other seasons surrounding past drama with Traci and her sisters. Traci calls it all disrespectful. The therapist is able to tie the drama with her sisters and how it’s amplified with the loss of her niece Lauren. This talk brings Traci to tears as she says she now feels alone.
Traci then breaks down when she reveals she’s afraid of never seeing her niece again. She and her therapist head away from the cameras as Traci’s crying her eyes out. When things calm down, Traci reveals that she would’ve never gone off at what Olivah told her if Lauren was still here.
The Braxtons shelter-in-place.

Next, due to the pandemic and quarantining, Toni’s changing her opening single, much to her disappointment.
In Atlanta, Trina and Von are sheltering in place with Evelyn. Trina didn’t feel comfortable with Evelyn staying in her condo amid the stay at home order, so she moved her into the guest suite at their home. Evelyn thanked them both with a big breakfast and Trina jokes about Evelyn spoiling Von with the food. Von’s clinic is staying open and he has to leave as his career was deemed essential by their Governor.
Back in LA, Toni gets a call from Michael Jr. who’s in Lauren’s room. He asks Toni if she talked to Traci and Toni reveals she hasn’t as she was upset about what happened.
