Growing Up Hip Hop Season 5 Episode 1 Recap:
The first episode, titled ‘The Gospel of Romeo’ starts off by detailing Romeo’s beef with Angela. The latter does not seem to respond to his Bible study texts, while the former does not seem to respond to Angela’s DMs and texts. They try to hash it out, but the differences are too much to resolve. Romeo feels that Angela is just friendly to him because of the cameras and comes to the conclusion that their friendship might not work. Since there will be a going-away party hosted by Romeo soon, things could come to a climax there.
Meanwhile, Sam and Egypt are in Las Vegas and the former has a surprise planned for her. This turns out to be an engagement ring, which slightly distresses Sam’s friends because they think the proposal might be coming because of a pregnancy scare. They also feel that Egypt is a little too young for Sam.
Finally, we also get to see that Raquel and Damon are happy since the former is 9 weeks pregnant. However, Briana seems to be back and is in a positive headspace because she is with her new man, wanting to start afresh with everyone. The first episode lays the groundwork as the various participants are poised to take the story forward. The hint of animosity between Romeo and Angela will definitely blow up in the upcoming episodes, making the show all the more irresistible.
