But when Rah-Lo heads down south after deciding to leave his wife, Asia, Celeste is floored and isn't quite sure if she wants to rekindle their affair. Meanwhile, Asia is hell-bent on revenge. Vowing not to let Celeste get away with her man that easily, she too heads to Atlanta. But just on her heels is Ishmael Wright, ready to save the day and warn his best friend Rah-Lo about his vengeful wife—though Ishmael also has something else up his sleeve.
