One chapter in love ends for Porsha and Kordell, while another one scorches as Cynthia turns up the heat for Peter. NeNe returns from her travels experiencing unusual pains, causing her to seek medical attention. As Phaedra nears the end of her mortuary science journey, Apollo reveals his concern for their marriage.
