Uncle Luke meets with Cree.
Cree lands in Miami and arrives at a local Jamaican restaurant. She’s nervous because she’s reached out to Uncle Luke in order to ask him to join JoJo’s panel at the showcase. A short while after Cree arrives, Luke walks in. Cree asks him to join the panel. This leads Luke to tell a story of how he shot game with Pepa when they were younger and she paid him dust. He explained because back in the day, New York rappers didn’t like him or his rap group.
He also tells her they need to just hang out more and talk in order to grow closer.
Treach extends an olive branch.
Meanwhile in New York, Tee Tee’s nervous. Treach is coming by for a visit with Tyran. On the way to Tee Tee’s place, Tyran learns Treach was rubbed the wrong way by Shawn. Apparently, he didn’t like Shawn sitting with Tee Tee, Egypt, and Tyran while in Jamaica last season. Treach feels that the talk was one-sided against Egypt.
Luckily, when Treach and Tyran walk in, they’re greeted by Shawn and Tee Tee with the baby. It’s his first time seeing Tee Tee’s baby. Later on, he learns Tee Tee hasn’t talked to Egypt in a while. Treach brings up the conversation in Jamaica and Shawn says he didn’t even want to be part of that conversation. Then, he tries to convince Tee Tee that she and Egypt need to talk, reminding them that they’ve been like sisters.
This causes Tee Tee to cry as she brings up the rumor Egypt learned from their aunt Dawn.
Shawn explains that the rumors are far from the truth as what actually occurred was something that happened when he and Tee Tee first started dating and they were long-distance. Treach’s inspired by this to tell a story of how Pepa got furious at him over a cheating rumor she heard listening to Wendy Williams’ radio show in the 90s.
In the end, Tee Tee agrees to talk to Egypt and Shawn says he’s willing to talk to Sam.

Maureen reaches out to Pepa one more time.
But back in New York, Tee Tee is with Maureen at a spa. Tee Tee lets Maureen know she told Treach about the drama between her and Egypt. This inspires Maureen to text Pepa that this drama is tearing the family apart and they need to meet. Pepa says she’ll meet with them if they’ll come to Vegas. Maureen agrees to this but tells Tee Tee they need Treach to be there.
This conversation occurs as JoJo and Eric introduce Pepa to everyone. As the show goes on, Sam gets into helicopter mode and attempts to perform a sound check backstage. However, Cree shuts that down. As this happens, a nervous Egypt talks to her mom first, then Sam. As Pepa gives her encouraging words, Sam coaches her up.
