Meanwhile, Pedro's family feels humiliated by Chantel's family. There seems to be no way out of the conflict between the two families.

In the next scene, we find out that Chantel hasn't talked to Pedro in some time and isn't even sure about the status of her relationship with him.

She knows he has his bachelor party that night and is hoping to hear from him.

Meanwhile, Pedro goes out with his friends and while they validate his need to send money home to his mother, they tell him to call Chantel and make up with her.

So Pedro calls Chantel and they agree to meet up since at that moment, it feels like their entire relationship is falling apart.

Chantel reflects on the fact that the trip to have a second wedding has only driven her family further apart from Pedro's family.

When Chantel and Pedro finally talk, Chantel reveals her family's concerns about how Pedro is just using her to send money back to his family. Chantel feels that Pedro is prioritizing his family over her.

Tom knows that Danielle wants him to be on her side.

Tom notes that he hasn't been in touch with Mohamed but questions what Danielle brings to him as evidence of Mohamed's treachery.

Danielle feels that the fact that Mohamed was not sleeping with her is proof of the fact that he never intended to marry her for love.

Danielle asks Tom point blank if he's on Mohamed's side and Tom notes that he's neutral. He feels Danielle is wasting her time and should be using her energy to take care of her daughters.

Danielle runs flying out of Tom's house crying hysterically. "I hate him" is what she says over and over again. Tom feels that it's for a judge to determine what should happen with the case and not him.

Meanwhile, Mohamed visits a lawyer to find out how to proceed in court. He actually doesn't feel that he needs a lawyer. Mohamed gets defensive about his intentions about a green card. The lawyer is concerned about Mohamed's anger.

Next, Paola sets up a photo shoot so that she can build a portfolio with her new hair color. While Russ feels that it's important for Paola to further her career, he does think it's important for her not to cross a boundary.
