Angela steps up and lets Leah know that she has her back. We love the comradery that’s slowly but surely building between the two sisters. Unbeknownst to Leah, Raymond had her come back to Oak Bluffs to find out Teddy’s secrets so that he could bring him down forcing him out of his marriage once and for all. Mama Liv confronts Alex and warns her to stay away from her family.

Meanwhile, Teddy is up to something. He tells Angela that he wants to escort Nikki to the father and daughter dance.
