If Loving You Is Wrong begins with Natalie confronting Lushion and Claudia. Claudia senses how awkward things are and tries to leave, offering to take him out for a beer. Natalie shuts her down and then deletes Claudia’s number out of his phone. Lushion is surprised to see she is so angry, telling her the last time they spoke she wanted nothing more to do with him. She apologizes for getting so angry and being so hasty, but tells him she feels betrayed that he did not tell her he had so much money in the bank. He tries to tell her he never lied to her and they argue over a lie of omission. She tells him she is willing to give this another try after learning he is not crooked, but tells him she does not trust Eddie and makes him promise no one will hurt her or her children. He promises her, and reveals how he threatened Eddie by shooting him at point blank range five times with a bulletproof vest on!
Eddie tries to come on to Claudia, but she shuts him down. She asks him about Pete, and he tells her he will probably die. He tries to give her his number, but she refuses and warns him to leave her alone before Esperanza finds out. Esperanza interrupts them and admonishes her for not clocking out on time. She also drills her on procedures that she struggles to remember, and tells her the skills she put on her resume do not add up. Claudia promises to shape up. At Kelly’s house, Alex continues to hide out while Kelly gets Justice, Peter, and Paisley from the bus. Alex’s children are happy to see her and their new brother.

Alex reveals she and their father are getting a divorce. Peter leaves angrily, while Paisley comforts her mother and tells her she loves her.
