Back at home in LA, Kris Jenner spends time with Scott at the family's home and accuses him of experiencing FOMO. Scott tries to capture the energy of Cuba, first by ordering in Cuban food, and then by renting a 50's style car and inviting Kylie Jenner, French Montana, and Kris to drive with him and smoke cigars.

Back in Cuba, drama unfolds. Kim discusses how Kris brokered a Puma modeling campaign for Kylie after Kanye had his fallout with the brand.

Kim expresses anger over her mother's tendency to put business first. Khloe sides with Kim noting that Kanye should have known about Kylie's deal before she signed.

Tension also builds as Kanye questions Kim over her plans to work on mother's day, a special day for him given the loss of his own mother.

Kim notes that once she signs up for a business agreement, she always keeps her word.

As the trip wraps up, Kourtney and Khloe remark on what a different experience it was for them to take a break from their phones and social media.

Back in LA, Kim discusses her indignation about Kyle's Puma deal with Kourtney.

On mother's day, Kim heads to her gig but remarks at her surprise and pleasure about Kanye's mother's day gift to her, a performance by a full orchestra.

As for Khloe, upon her return to LA, she speaks with Lamar on the phone and feels comforted when she finds out that he's doing okay without a recent relapse.

The episode's tension wraps up with Kim facing off against Kris and expressing her displeasure about Kylie's Puma deal. Kris explains that the contract was a business decision and therefore not personal.

Kim demands that her mother at least give her some warning about business contracts that produce conflicts within the family and manages to successfully communicate her concerns.

At the conclusion of the episode, the clan gets together at Khloe's home for a bona fide Cuban celebration, complete with salsa dancing and no phones.
