Notes and Trivia Edit


  • This episode scored 9.25 million viewers.
  • Aja Naomi King (Michaela) had a scene with mother-to-be Mary Walker, played by Lynn Whitfield. Michaela was supposed to slap Mary, but Aja refused to do so. She told Nowalk that if she were to slap Mary, Mary would have to not only slap her back but knock her out for realism and authenticity’s sake. Nowalk and the writers compromised and Mary ended up catching Michaela’s hand as she tried to slap her.[3]

Important Events Edit

Title Edit

  • While Lila and Rebecca lay down on top of Lila’s Sorority house doing coke and talking, Lila tells Rebecca about her worries on having sex (and if he would fit). Rebecca assumes she’s talking about Griffin and makes a snarky comment about him but Lila swears Rebecca to secrecy and tells her that she has met a new guy, who she has named ‘Mr. Darcy’. She then informs Rebecca on a few more facts about this mysterious man. “I promised I wouldn’t tell anyone who he was. He has a wife.”
