In episode 2, “Strange Bedfellows”, the Greenleafs are moving in all different directions. Jacob is determined to move out of the Greenleaf mansion and take charge as the head pastor at Triumph’s second location. However, Lady Mae wants Bishop to talk to him about Pastor Skanks claiming to be the son of Darryl, the deceased caretaker who was killed in the arson James committed years ago. Both Lady Mae and Bishop are puzzled by the claim, since they only remember Darryl having daughters.
Meanwhile, Jacob’s transition to Triumph isn’t going quite as smoothly as he would like. Skanks demands that Jacob go door to door in Calvary territory, telling folks about Triumph’s new location. It feels like a cheap move to Jacob, but he does it anyway. In the midst of this, Pastor Skanks’ wife finally shows Kerissa the home she and Jacob will be moving their family into.

Despite the upcoming move, Sophia and Zora are still two peas in a pod (for now). Sophia has her sights set on a Triumph singer named Isaiah Hambrick, and the girls plot and plan to attend his rehearsal. The only trouble is, when they arrive, Isaiah only has eyes for Zora. This is going to be bad!

After some convincing, GG goes out with Darius, and they have a great time.
