Whitley’s mother surprises Whitley and Dwayne by coming to visit for Thanksgiving. Whitley is too ashamed to admit that she is unemployed and that the couple was recently robbed. Marion stuns Whitley by introducing her fiancÃ©, Malik, a much younger man who sells oils and poetry for a living. Although Dwayne believes that Whitley should let her mother live her own life, she fears that Malik is a golddigger. She asks Kim to come over and flirt with Malik in the hopes of driving the couple apart. Just when it seems that things can’t get any worse, Dwayne’s mother (who has not spoken to him since he married Whitley) shows up on the Waynes’ doorstep. Freddie tries to avoid Ron and re-commit to her relationship with Shazza. She even dons her old “”earthy”” look for a rally on behalf of Haitian refugees, but a law school assignment conflicts with the protest.
