Hi guys, welcome to another review of the Mercy and Ike show. Let’s get into somethings!!!.
I would not be surprised if everyone else felt the same way as i did. Honestly, this episode left me confused about the kind of relationship Mercy and Ike have, I don’t understand and for those who missed this episode, you will see why that is in this review.
In episode four we all know that Mercy come back from scandalous London trip, but was yet to meet her lover Ike. Well, that was one of the first scenes in this episode.
Mercy who was having a chat with her elder sister and brother, the door bell rang and went to go open the door. Her visitor was no another person but Mr. Lover boy Ike, on getting into the house he complimented her saying “you look good” to which Mercy smiled.
Sitting in my living room clutching my pillows and a bowl of popcorn keeping me company, I could feel the tension It was obvious they both needed to have a talk to clear out the pressure they both were under.
They both started with the elephant in the room, Mercy’s London trip. This was the first time we got to see Ike visibly upset about the situation, “You went too far” Ike told Mercy. For a moment Mercy seemed on the defensive, justifying her actions in London. On the flip side we found out that Ike knew about Mercy meetings with Willie and made no big deal about it but his issue was the photos they both posted on Instagram in each others arms – “did i know you were going to go over there and put on a whole show?” he said.
Did anyone catch the slip from Mercy when Ike accused her of doing it on purpose and she said Yes!.
Later she would double down saying its because of rumors and bad stories already flying around about her meeting with a man that might have pushed her to take the photos and posted them on Instagram. And Ike is right millions of people myself included have opinions on the what went down in London. I’m starting to think i would start a trend on twitter calling it the #mercylondonshow lol.
Call us judgmental, hey that is why we are fans, is what fans do and fans will always do.
The indication we had about Ike and money was when he revealed he “from what everyone is saying online, this dude has money, I like money. He likes you. If you wanna embarrass me you know, i think i should get something out of it”
Shocker!!!. Did you guys know there was a buy out clause? Yes, Ike blow the lid out of the can when he mentioned he loved money and offered Mercy a deal to buy him out. What was this deal worth, you ask? 5 Million. Dollars? Naira? Pounds? This was not disclosed. What we know as fact is that Mercy did pay him some money but not the total amount he asked.
Mercy made it known that Ike would leave her for another rich woman if they came by, to which Ike replied “You are trying to make them come”. After seeing that the discussion was leading nowhere Ike got up to leave while telling Mercy to un-follow Willie on Instagram but Mercy refused saying ” I will think about it but not now”.
Ike repeated asked her to un-follow him and got up to leave, at this point Mercy looks visibly unhappy with her eyes slightly a shade of red. He sighs and walks out the door slamming it behind him. Mercy quickly follows behind saying “You know i can smash your car right”
After her argument with Ike Mercy decided to go hang out with her friends, Mimi, Tracy, and Theresa. Having a need to know what her friends thought about Ike; Mercy asked them what they thought of him. But her friends seem to really not like Ike especially Tracy who was of the opinion that Mercy is the one chasing after Ike, in her own words “You are the one chasing after Ike, he is not reciprocating”.
Trust me, Twitter folks (especially Ike fans) dragged her on Twitter, lols.
I really don’t understand why Mercy had to pay Ike for whatever reason, I don’t understand the dynamics of their relationship but my opinion does not matter lols.
I really enjoyed this episode especially how raw they were with their emotions, so I give this episode a 10/10. The show keeps getting better and I love it.
Coming up next week: Mercy was seen crying in a car after he had a talk with Ike.
