There's much excitement in the house when Vod announces that her mum is coming to stay. Nobody can quite believe she's got a mum at all. But, she has and when she arrives she is not what anybody expected.

Josie and Kingsley announce a relationship amnesty which entails them both being honest about everything thus far in order to wipe the slate clean. However a little honesty goes a long way.

Meanwhile Howard has his mind blown by a book about feminism that Candice gave him and Oregon goes on a hunt to find the one good reviewer of her play.
