Barbie is busy wedding planning but things start to unravel when she finds out that her venue fell through. When she does finally does say I do – her relationship with the two other wives, Sasha and Autumn, deepens, which drives a wedge between the non-married women and further escalates the hierarchy turmoil. All the while, Sasha is working to find a balance between motherhood and her career as she makes her return to the music industry, and Autumn is focused on her marriage and on navigating her friendships with WAGS that she once trusted, but now feels have turned their backs on her. Sophia fuels that fire when she confronts Autumn about the rumors that her husband Seyi was involved in a cheating scandal.

Plus, Natalie and Shaun experience some major up and downs in their relationship and have to decide if they can make it work, especially given their close ties within the group. And despite her best efforts to stay above the fray, newcomer Tia finds out that her boyfriend may not be as trustworthy as she thought.
