Queens Episode 8 Recap

Titled ‘God’s Plan,’ episode 8 is a highly turbulent installment that brings shocking revelations to light. As Brianna and Eric are rushed to the hospital after getting shot, the rest of the group, as well as fans, pray and hope for both of them to survive. Grief-stricken Naomi and Jill begin to remember their old times in the 90s. In 1993, young Brianna and Naomi meet and bond over music before deciding to form a rap group for the local showcase, much to the dismay of Brianna’s mother, Renee.

Renee introduces Brianna and Naomi to Jill, who surprisingly becomes a part of their group. Then the three girls go on to perform at the showcase by introducing themselves as the ‘Nasty Bitches.’ A young Eric also meets them at the event and shows interest in working with them. Back in the present, Lauren tells the detective about Eric’s debt and his fight with Jadakiss. Eric’s condition becomes stable, and he reassures a worried Naomi that he is fine. But she is skeptical about the shooter still roaming free. She also asks Eric if he would like to be mentioned on Jojo’s birth certificate, to which he happily agrees.

Meanwhile, Valeria brings Brianna’s children to visit their mother in the hospital, and Renee refuses to give her consent for Brianna’s surgery as it could risk her life. But Naomi, Jill, and Valeria plead with her to give Brianna a chance to live a life without being paralyzed, and thus Renee eventually agrees. Jadakiss, who has become the prime suspect of the shooting, comes to the hospital and threatens Eric while disclosing that he is not the shooter.

The shooter’s identity is finally revealed to be Jill’s ex-husband, who confesses to her that he had aimed the bullet at her, but it didn’t hit her as they are destined to be together. As he physically attacks her, Jill knocks him out while the police and the other women arrive. The episode ends with Jill feeling guilty about Brianna’s state, while a flatlining Brianna gets a heartbeat again.
