This season starts with a flashback of Martins’ first time in Baba Gbenro’s house. The placement of that flashback in this new season, rather than the first season, was an inspired choice in my opinion.

It wasn’t a very long scene but it went a long way in making the movie more interesting, because, we understand better now why Baba Gbenro is so dogged and was not easily discouraged by Martins’ hostile treatment of him. 

At their first meeting, Baba had dealt with and had won over a violent, bad-tempered Martins with the wisdom of God which no man can resist or gainsay.

Mama Gbenro had been skeptical from the start, and she was in Season 1 when Martins’ situation seemed to have gotten out of hand.

When Baba said they’d prayed and had been convinced about taking Martins in, it taught me that being convinced about what God has spoken to you doesn’t necessarily guarantee a smooth ride, but it gives you the strength to make it through victoriously.
