I battled with this episode’s recap. Honestly eh, I’m getting bored. The purpose of today’s episode was what? Watch a frustrated wedding planner with terrible acting? Or watch Mide in the exact state he was last week – no progress? This wedding has refused to happen. In fact, praying for the wedding has passed “Pastor” Woli’s powers, so tey he has gone to gather his church members to join in. I know, I know, the episode actually wasn’t so bad. There were some really sweet moments, and perhaps that’s why the comments on YouTube were calling this the best episode yet. Let’s dive in.
Even if you didn’t read Becoming, you probably already heard that Michelle Obama had a miscarriage and eventually sought fertility treatments. She described how she felt following her miscarriage as “lonely, painful, and demoralizing,” and added that sharing this struggle with a couple of her friends brought her to a steady place. I think we all knew this part of her book like the very same day it launched for two reasons:
False alarm guys. There’s no indication that today’s episode was the finale. The previous seasons have been 10 episodes, but I guess NdaniTV is giving us a treat this time? On to today’s episode. There was just a theme of sadness that even “Pastor” Woli’s comedic act couldn’t get me to laugh. With Mide’s dad passing, and Shalewa and Mohammed’s breakup, it was an overall moody situation.
Ejo, I just want to know when this wedding will happen, as they are just about to plan the bridal shower and there’s only one more episode before the end of the season. Me thinks they are draaaaggging the whole thing on purpose. Kilode?It took Mide all of nine solid episodes to confront his sister? And Iya Tiwa, with all of her wedding planning since episode 1, is just about to book a photographer?
Can we now say it is confirmed that Tiwa is pregnant? While it was good that Shalewa and Didi were ecstatic about the news, because of course every new baby deserves to be celebrated, I think they may have been a bit too shallow. Shalewa was busy talking about being the godmother while Didi was talking about Mide scoring a goal. Goal ko, goalkeeper ni.
“I’m still going to ask Ezike for money for my wedding dress; he doesn’t need to know I got it for free.” That’s what my former coworker, Shade, said after she won a free Pnina Tornai wedding dress from a bridal boutique. I responded with a full expression of disbelief all over my face. “You have got to be kidding! What do you plan to do with the money since you already have a dress? Save it for your new home?” “New home ko, new mansion ni. Of course it will be my personal spending money,” she said.
Shalewa, Shalewa. How many times did I call your name? When something happens in a relationship, you don’t just run off without talking about it. Even if you end up leaving, still talk about everything and listen to the other party. Talk about what happened, how it made you feel, and what decisions you would like to make going forward. Otherwise, you make assumptions and leave the other party guessing, and both of these lead to what? A disaster.
Honestly this episode should have been called “Poor Tiwa and Shalewa.” The script writers are messing with our emotions. This wasn’t our plan for this season. Tiwa and Mide were just supposed to jejely get married and live happily ever after, while Shalewa and Mohammed get engaged, and then we plan their wedding next season, period! But I guess the show reflects this thing called “life”; sometimes it throws things at you that you just wish undone so badly. On to the gist…
