Family Reunion Part 3 Plot: What can it be About?
The show derives its comedy from the differences between the family members and their everyday ups and downs in life. Part 2 ends with Jade throwing a masquerade party to celebrate her fifteenth birthday. The idea is to sneak in Royale, who Jade’s parents won’t let her see. Cocoa and Moz take stock of their expenses and find out bizarre ways to save money wherever they can, only to know that they are broke. Just when they thought things could not get worse, they learn that Jade has left town with Royale.
Part 3 may pick up from the ending of the second part. We can expect to learn what Jade is up to and what have she and Royale planned to do after leaving town. M’Dear lets Cocoa and Moz know that they are welcome to stay as long as they like when she finds out about their financial situation. We might also get to see how Moz and Cocoa bounce back from their financial slump. Part 3 will bring more fun and hilarity to the lives of the McKellan family members as they stumble from one misadventure to another.
