Spencer arrives at the dorm and is amazed when Joss shows him how his gifts have crowded the room. The flowers can be smelled down the hall but Trina isn’t there to see them.

spencer and joss with flowers

He asks how mad Trina is. Joss says he may have ended the relationship by making an ultimatum.

He knows he lost his temper. She asks if he would rather be with Trina or his brother.

joss asks what spencer wants

Spencer doesn’t know. He loves Trina and never wants to hurt her or give her up… but she’s an adult and Ace is a baby.

He’s not convinced Esme can give Ace the support he’s going to need on her own. Isn’t what a baby needs more important?

spencer talks ace

She asks him to think about what that looks like. Will he go home to Esme and Ace every night? Would that be fair to anyone?

The longer he stays in a pseudo-family, the more it will hurt when it blows up. She doesn’t think that’s fair to anyone.

He refuses to bow out of his brother’s life. She accuses him of being childish. He can’t have everything he wants.

Trina bursts into the house as Marshall and Curtis discuss dinner. They wonder what’s wrong. She doesn’t want to talk.

They tell her to sit down so they can help iron it out.

She knows how they feel about Spencer so she will deal with it herself.

They offer to be neutral so she tells them about the ultimatum and complains about him blowing up her phone with texts.

Curtis urges her to talk to Spencer. But first she needs to figure out what she wants.

curtis and marshall offer to be neutral

She makes it clear she doesn’t want to break up with Spencer but doesn’t want him sharing a home with Esme and Ace.

Curtis can’t blame Spencer for wanting to play a role in his brother’s life.

That sets Trina off and she starts railing about Esme. She’s reached her limit at being patient.

trina at the end of her tether

Marshall starts talking about cornbread and Irene, his first love. He thought she would be his only love until he met Epiphany.

They asks if Spencer is the only boy she’s loved. She admits that she fell for Cam earlier but that was different and Spencer is the real deal.

trina listens to curtis

She thought he would be her future but she might be wrong.

They discuss primary relationships vs family. Is Spencer her first priority?

marshall and curtis have advice for trina

She doesn’t like the sound of that and feels like her education and career should be her first priority.

They are proud of her for pursuing her dreams but Curtis asks who she texts first and last every day.

She admits that’s Spencer. He asks if it’s the same for him.
