We left last season with Zac and Fatima’s inevitable breakup. It was rough, too. Zac has a lot of issues he needs to work out, and Fatima, while she wants to support him, shouldn't have to deal with all of his drama, especially his mommy issues. She’s in over her head with him, and he claimed he slept with Connie. This may have been the best thing that could have happened to Fatima to get her to let Zac go. Fatima runs to her parents’ house after the heated exchange with Zac to give them the details about what happened. She also needs to get some stuff out of storage since getting her clothes from Zav’s place will probably not happen.
Later on, Fatima’s dad visits Zac. Papa tells Zac that he understands him because he used to be like him and that Fatima still loves him. Zac says she doesn’t because she thinks he slept with Connie. Yes, this is a confession that Zac lied about to hurt Fatima, which is just as bad as him doing it. Papa tells Zac to fix it, and Zac says it was wrong for Fatima to trick him into therapy.
Papa said he went to therapy and that it works wonders, so if Zac is smart, he’ll get it together.
Zac better hurry up because Fatima is on a date with Paul, the construction worker who was lowkey trying to get with her and part of why Zac went spiraling. He’s a gentleman, so he’s not trying to force anything, but the chemistry is there. Fatima gets urged to go up on stage and sing, and she delivers. She sings “Fallin” by Alicia Keys, which is perfect given what she’s going through. And, of course, Zac coincidentally steps into the spot with his boys in the middle of her set.
We end the episode with Zac looking like a sad puppy because he’s still in love and realizing he messed up.
