“Thicker Than Water: The Tankards” Season 2 Premiere “Act Like a Sister” aired last Jan. 4, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. on Bravo. The family prepares for Cyrene’s graduation party. Jewel tells Ben to hurry upstairs, so he can finally help with the preparations. Read on to know what happens next.

Cyrene is getting fed up with her mother who is so emotional about her going to college at Howard. Jewel wants to check on her every month in the campus. No matter how happy she is for her daughter, she still prefers Cyrene going to college nearby.

The other children start to notice that Cyrene is the only one who has a graduation party. Ben was focused in his music career in the past.

Jewel’s main issue is not having her sister Junice in the party. If Junice will not come, Jewel thinks everyone will be devastated. She believes that Junice skipping the party will be one of the worst things she has ever done in the family.

While everyone gathers on the table, Brooklyn remembers her aunt Junice who supported her back in prison. She starts to get tired of all the sister drama. Ben, on the other hand, does not want to take sides. He only thinks about Jesus.

In the 4th of July trip to Junette’s house, people who must travel by land think that Ben, Jewel and Cyrene taking the plane is unfair.

Turns out, Junice attends the reunion at Junette’s home. She was hesitant to attend because she loves the space she created between her sisters and herself. She thinks her sisters like to gossip a lot.

During the reunion, Cyrene asks Junice for serious talk. She admits to her aunt that she is hurt when she did not attend her graduation. Junice’s alibi is she was busy in the graduate school and being a mother. She also says trips are expensive. Cyrene thinks financial matters are not reasonable enough.

Eventually, the whole family talks inside the house about Junice’s issues. Junetta tells Junice that they were hurt when she moved out without any notice. Cyrene wants to give her Aunt Junice a chance to speak.

As usual, Junice talks about her demanding graduate school. Junetta does not want to hear about it. She starts to cry about Junice’s distant attitude from the family. She is hurt when Junice did not ask for help from the sisters when her husband went to jail.

“Act like a sister!” Junice screams repetitively.

Britney finally breaks down crying. She cannot keep up with the sisters’ fight. After she walked out, Ben tries to lighten the mood by praying with everyone. Finally, the burdens are gone and everyone hugs each other. The sisters even smile for a photo while hugging.

What is next for the three sisters and Cyrene? Catch the next episode on  Jan. 11, 2015.
