In the first episode of season 3, the perceived serious threat that would have everyone on their toes and heels is quickly established.
The first scene of the episode shows MacLean (Clifford “Method Man” Smith) giving Monet (Mary J. Blige) the pricey gemstone that the deceased informant Dante had meant to give her.
The ring ends up being sold at auction, where a wealthy white man purchases it for a sizable quantity of money as a strange Black woman
with a very kind expression observes the sale. When the same woman arrives as the same white man proposes to his girlfriend, instructing him to hand over her ring, we quickly realise the ring is hers.
We quickly see that Noma lacks patience when things don’t go her way because she uses a large machete to hack off Karen’s hand, remove the ring from the severed hand, place the ring on her finger, and then leave as her goons put the couple out of their misery.
It’s a new semester at the elite institution, and Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.), who can no longer stay in the room, is currently packing up his belongings. Despite openly admitting to his illicit aspirations, Brayden’s (Gianni Paolo) family wants him gone because they believe he is the reason their kid is trafficking narcotics.
Before his current girlfriend, Effie (Alix Lapri), who killed Lauren, assures him what happened to his ex is not his responsibility, Riq, who still feels guilty for her murder, stares at a photo of themselves together. After a touching exchange, Brayden’s mother tells Riq that he must grab his stuff and leave the
The greatest loser of season 2 was Monet. Zeke (Daniel Bellomy), her son, and Mecca (Daniel Sunjata), his father, both passed away at the same terrible moment. She is also forced to remain married to Lorenzo (Berto Colon), the man she wishes she could kill.
She is feeling depressed until MacLean arrives carrying what he thinks is good news, telling her that Zeke now owns Dante’s apartment as a result of Dante’s passing. Because Monet is his mother and he didn’t leave a will, she inherits.
Dante is a high-level guns and narcotics dealer, so when Monet inquires about the cash, cars, and private jet, the feds are keeping all of them.
She emphasises that the police should be investigating who shot at Zeke and Dante’s hangar and that she is not overly bothered about any of that. When Lorenzo adds his two cents, Monet swiftly cuts him off in front of the lawyer since she doesn’t like that at all and instructs her to calm down.
Monet says she will sell the penthouse, but until then, she lets Dru (Lovell Adams-Gray) and Caine (Woody McClain) reside there while she finds a buyer. Lorenzo asks her what she plans to do with the penthouse because he doesn’t want to live there.
Diana complains about how her mother treats her, but Lorenzo advises her to be patient with Monet because she is still mourning Zeke’s passing. She receives some good news from him when he reveals that he used his connections to get her accepted at Stansfield and will permit her to live on campus full-time.
She doesn’t waste any time and ends up living with Becca in Riq and Brayden’s former bedroom. The two get along well, but when Becca says she conducted her research on her flatmate, she goes a little too far. Diana responds by reassuring Becca that she is knowledgeable about her field and her business.
To the astonishment of our Young Icon, Diana even takes a lesson with Riq right now, and Effie is not too delighted to see her there.
Brayden got off with a warning after lying and claiming to be the brains behind the drug dealing software CourseCorrect in order to take the blame for Riq using his white privilege.
Brayden was expelled from the school for his hustling behaviour in allowing Riq to remain on campus rather than being sent to jail. As a result, his father offers him the option to work at their company in order to reclaim his honour and the family name.
Brayden’s guys take him under the wing of his Uncle Lucas, who reveals that he is a rebel like his nephew and that he thinks CourseCorrect was a brilliant idea.
Brayden’s potential is recognised by Uncle Lucas, who wants him to use his “talents” to generate revenue for the business. He ultimately transfers Brayden to his KiKi so that he can get the hang of things. The moment Brayden sees his handsome Black tutor, he likes him and starts to consider whirling.
We do not blame him.
Additionally, Brayden discovers that the firm is full of trust fund kids who abuse booger sugar, a far cry from the friends he made while living on the Stanfield campus.
Do you recall Bash, Simon Stern’s boo? He’s back, and after Stern dissolves their marriage or whatever their relationship is, he’s seeking for some quick cash.
After Brayden bears the blame, the money stops flowing in, so Bash puts pressure on Riq and Brayden to give him some money or he’ll call the police.
As a result, Riq and Brayden decide to resolve the situation on their own. While Riq decides to deal with him after missing his deadline, Brayden rushes to Cane in the hopes that he can help with the issue.
When Riq goes to speak with Bash at his opulent residence, things spiral out of control. In fact, Riq is his father’s son because he killed Bash by severely stabbing him.
Cane, Riq, Brayden, and Effie are presented with a chance after failing to make a fresh drug connection. To discuss business, Riq and Brayden pay Cane a visit in the penthouse. When Noma, her right-hand man Obi, and the rest of her team arrive, things swiftly take a turn for the worst.
Noma confesses that Mecca was working for her and that the ring she took was meant to be her engagement ring from him. She shoots one of Mecca’s troops in the head in front of the group to make it clear that she means business and that she wants to know who killed her fiancé.
Cane, Brayden, and Riq manage to persuade her to allow them to move the weight that Mecca was in charge.
