In all honesty, after seeing episode 1 of the new Rumor Has It season, I thought it best to relegate it to my “Watch When Available” list. That was till I heard a voice screaming in the wilderness “Mamazeus, Open YouTube, you don’t know what awaits you”. I listened and that’s why I have a review for episode 2 of Rumor Has It !!!!
Episode 2 titled “Inside” really should have been titled “Two Can Play The Game” but wouldn’t that be revealing too much ?
Who else felt like giving Dolapo a sound Igbaju upon meeting her husband, Franklin ( Mawuli Gavor)? Thankfully, the feeling of guilt quickly ushered itself out the door when you began to realize some of his flaws and give theories as to why Dolapo would cheat on such a mouth watering piece of tetestoron? Say no more, we are all on this table together!
Dolapo is married to a handsome Ghanaian 🙄 but isn’t enjoying the marriage. Franklin is a liar ( remember we stumbled on him at the restaurant in Episode 1? Apparently, he lies to Dolapo about coming straight from the airport). His attempt to be nice is a ruse as watching till the end, We realize that there’s another woman plus there is something he needs to tell his wife.
Dolapo on the other hand has been in a loveless and attentionless relationship so that explains why she gives in to the charm of Femi and gets laid not once but twice!!
The Mensahs have their side Boos. The only person getting unfairly played is Femi who obviously is head over heels in love with Dolapo.
This episode is definitely an upgrade from episode 1 but that comes as no surprise- series have the tendency to get better or worse with each new episode. I particularly love how the story unfolds and I foresee the debate that might kick off on social media if NdaniTV’s social media manager can drive it.
However, here are some eyeballing flops of Episode 2…
For one, I noted in my last review that the editors failed woefully at hiding Dolapo’s Tube Top. In this episode, it’s full scale glaring. Dolapo’s frantic move from the bed reveal not just the tube top but a TIGHT!
Ok we know the actors are never nude beneath the sheets but there has to be some tricks to make us believe that they are- bare back, attempt to wear clothes while sitting on the edge of the bed etc! OH and Femi follows wearing his boxers. I really don’t need to point out that except it’s a quickie, the clothes part take some time 🙄🙄🙄
Next!! Does Ranti have a favorite restuarant and a reserved spot at the restaurant? Apparently all her dates are at the same restaurant and the same spot. She maintained the same position till her last ( promising) date of the episode.
Then ofcourse, Franklin’s meal must have been so horrible that he couldn’t finish it. Both Dolapo and Franklin ignore the rice including the CHICKEN!!! OK just kidding on this one.
Ultimately, Rumor Has It Episode 2 does well with revealing its story and building suspense which is something I can’t exactly say for episode 1. The anticipation for episode 3 is definitely higher than it was for 2.
