The episode begins with the US scene from the trailer which is remarkably portrayed as a dream, due to the queer mannerisms of Dedun and Bamidele.

When Laide tells Daddy Gboyega about it, he pauses before responding. That was a defining moment where he’d show us whether he’d learnt from his past mistakes.

If he’d said something like: “Hmm…Actually dear, Dedun called me just a few minutes ago”, that would have been a wiser Dele.

But, classic Dele said, “God forbid”. At that point, I knew he’d just taken a first class ticket to chaos island.

Episode 2 largely shows the audience challenges of long-distance marriages. It shows husbands the need to listen to their wives and to be more spiritually sensitive.

While Dele kept scrutinizing his wife’s dreams, I wondered if he’d had even one dream from the Lord in the five seasons of this series.

Wherever Dedun has been involved, Dele has always been elusive.

If he doesn’t change that, we might yet revisit unpleasant memories from Season 1.  

Damilare as well isn’t so much of an omo gidi gidi as Baba thinks. He calls his wife a business partner; imagine that! Lack of transparency in marriage thus, is a recipe for disaster.

He also validates the saying that the way to a man’s heart is through his tummy; that’s why strange women keep bringing him food.
