Everybody is having fun eating, chatting and playing billiards. Benji tells Shanira something that can make a difference with the family’s happy time. Read on to know what happens next.
Benji is playing billiards with his wife. Suddenly, they talk about moving out of the house as soon as possible. The reason? Benji wants to have sex freely.
While the family is munching some snacks, Britney wants everyone to have a workout. That is why she invites them outside to have a “boot camp.” During the boot camp, Marcus keeps on mocking Britney. He says he is lazy to do it. He thinks he is fit already. Britney gets mad and quits training her family. Jewel bitterly remembers her conflict with Junice while watching her daughter. Britney walks out.
The head of the house Ben Tankard is preparing peach juice with Jewel. He is not concerned at all with Britney. He finds her reaction earlier “goofy.” Suddenly, he receives a call from Junice’s husband Rock. Rock is aware about the sisters’ confrontation during the Fourth of July reunion. He wants to gather everybody for a serious talk. Jewel is ready. She wants to move on from their issues.
Meanwhile, Benji and Shanira are looking for a house. The first house is beautiful and spacious but too expensive for them. They have no choice but to look for a cheaper one.
Jewel and Ben are busy dressing up to visit Jewel’s parents. Ben admires Jewel’s appearance and says he prefers to stay in the room with her.
Benji and Shanira go to a condominium unit. It is smaller but functional. They still have to think about the price despite the fact that it is cheaper than the house.
Jewel and Ben finally arrive at the house of Jewel’s parents. After remembering her family’s bankruptcy in the past, Jewel shares to her parents the sisters’ intense confrontation recently. Her mother says she is hurt when Junice left. She cries while saying that she feels like “poison” for her daughter. Her husband assures the Tankard couple that there were no favorites. He was insisting it to Junice, but it was like “talking to a rock.” Jewel’s parents want the commotion to stop through proper and serious communication.
Shanira and Benji are still thinking about the condo. They describe Jewel as the “CEO of Tank Bank” who makes it difficult for them to borrow money from the family. They have no choice but to work harder to earn more money.
In the park, Junice and her mother hang out. Junice says that she wants to start making peace with her mother because it is easier than going through her aggressive sisters first. She tells her mother that she just wanted to travel. Her mother keeps on interrupting her. Junice tells her bluntly that their talk starts to become an “interrogation.” She emphasizes that it makes the family “overbearing.” Her mother cries. Junice hugs her.
Cyrene visits Britney in her apartment. Britney confides to her that she experienced being beaten by school kids. She says that Marcus just watched her. Cyrene is surprised. It became the reason for Britney to get so angry easily with Marcus during boot camp. She cries. As Cyrene hugs her sister, she says that maybe Marcus was also scared.
Everyone, minus the kids, meets in a restaurant for the big talk with Junice and Rock. They are still busy greeting each other.
After her talk with Britney, Cyrene goes to Marcus’s room to talk. Marcus is aware of Britney’s grudges. He says he has other concerns. He thinks the past is not important. He does not want to involve Cyrene. He tells her that the Tankards are “blessed” to have not seen the “angry Marcus.” He does not want to talk to Britney, but he promises to “behave.”
Back to the restaurant, Jewel is already tearing up as soon as the conversation starts. While Junice is explaining her side, the waiter keeps on interrupting them with their orders.
Finally, the conversation goes smoothly. The sisters’ father emphasizes that they are not attacking Junice. Rock defends himself and his wife that they moved out of the house because they were ready. However, he apologizes for the sudden notice. Junice says sorry as well. Everyone starts to apologize with each other. They all promise to keep on trying to move on. The sisters’ mother commends Rock for planning the meeting.
“Thank you, Jesus!” Jewel exclaims.
