Sundays Run the world discovers major truths revealed and several characters recognize that they deserve better than what they have been given.

Sondi, who has raised concerns about Amari’s predominantly white ballet class negatively impacting her self-esteem, takes the girl to see black ballet dancers perform. Amari is delighted to see dancers who look like her and asks to wear the flesh-colored ballerinas that Sondi has personalized for her. See? Representation matters.

In a not-so-calm conversation during the performance, Matthew suggests that Sondi consider asking Baptiste – the same woman who cast nuclear shadows at their housewarming party – to be his new advisor. But not before revealing that there is have been rumors that he was sleeping with a student. According to Matthew, the anonymous woman was “flirtatious” and people made assumptions that were not true. Sure.

Cut to the awkward encounter with Baptiste, in which Sondi apologizes for being rude at the party, also noting that his innuendo about Matthew is harmful. Baptiste gets right to the point: Sondi needs a new advisor or she will be kicked out of the current program. She points out that Sondi has yet to find her own voice since becoming so focused on Matthew’s worth. She agrees to consider the offer if Sondi writes a 15-page “brainstorming” with a new angle for her thesis.

Sondi is stressed and tries to write, but is still interrupted by Maya, who wants to play. Agreeing to take a little walk to the store, she finds Matthew reading alone in a cafe. Irritated, she calls out to him for leaving her daughter with her as he goes out for “me time” knowing that she has so much work to do in three days. Besides, he doesn’t even take care of him in the house. She is overworked and underestimated and needs time on her own. Hence a visit to the library.

Meanwhile, Ella attends an exclusive dinner with a celebrity. It’s a fun night with live music and easy conversation until she catches said celebrity cheating on his wife – and Ella’s friend – in the bathroom. Ella is put in the difficult position of writing this juicy story about her stay-at-home daughter – who invited her to the little get-together – and getting that big increase in traffic. The story also causes an argument with Anderson, who doesn’t really care and calls his work “whack”. To be fair, Ella feels the same about the gig. However, she is not happy that her boyfriend is not supporting her.

Run the World Season 1Renee meets her college friend Mia, who is now vice president of Loreal Cosmetics, for drinks and career advice. Renee’s informal pitch for the brand impresses Mia, who wants to set up a meeting for a formal pitch. Despite Renee’s efforts to bring the Loreal pitch, she was delegated to a supporting role under her much younger white male colleague. Quoting Maya Angelou as she did in the pilot, Renee resigns. She wasn’t going to stay and be continually despised like that.

While dating Renee, Ella meets Iman, who is mad at the story and swears to drag her name through the mud.

Elsewhere, Whitney and her fiancé Ola take another session with their marriage counselor, who worries about their demanding schedules. Ola points out that Whitney has been aloof lately, which she attributes to her busy job and overwhelming wedding plans. But let’s face it: she also feels guilty about this one-night stand that she still hasn’t told him about. She eventually confesses to Sondi, who encourages her to tell Ola the truth.

As Whitney prepares for her bachelorette party, she hears a knock on the door. It’s Ola. Boy, do they have a lot to say.
