ICYMI: Bob Hearts Abishola Season 2 Premiere Recap 11/16/2020

The episode opens with Tunde (Barry Shabaka Henley) and Bob (Billy Gardell) meeting up to buy a ring for Abishola. They discuss what they told their significant others to keep her from finding out. Bob said he was meeting a friend from college, while Tunde just went into the bathroom with a newspaper, only to go down the fire escape.


The men arrive at the jewelers. Bob wants a simple, classy ring, like the woman he is proposing to. Tunde wants them to hurry so he can go back to the restroom. The ring costs over $11,000, but Tunde haggles it down to a lower price by telling Dave the jeweler (Ryan Cartwright) he wants him to have the sale so he can move out of his parents’ house. They end up with an undisclosed deal.


At home, Bob tells Dottie (Christine Ebersole) that he plans on proposing. Dottie is thrilled, especially since they will all be living together. Bob is surprised she isn’t moving back home, but he is given a look. He says he will talk to Abishola’s family about Dottie keeping her bedroom.


Olu (Shola Adewsui), Dele (Travis Wolfe Jr) and Tunde eat dinner together. He compliments her pepper soup and she wonders where he really was that day because the bathroom didn’t ‘smell like death,’ as Dele put it. He says he cannot talk in front of the boy, so they send Dele away. Tunde tells Olu the truth, but makes her promise not to tell Abishola. However, she spills as soon as Abishola (Folake Olowofoyeku) comes home.
