By comparison, Tye has designed a winning app and is getting ready for a Forbes interview. The other member of the “Unbreakable Gang” is Angie. Failing singer, she first declines a role in Get Out: The Musical.

Tye’s luck starts to turn when she goes to the Forbes interview and it is with a previous one-night stand, Anna (Kate Rockwell). While the interview goes well, Tye doesn’t part ways with Anna on friendly terms after having a few dates. Angie has the same luck that when she goes to start working on the musical, she has to pay a fee of $ 600. And so, Angie is pretending to be a nanny to get the extra money.

For the eighth episode, Harlem offers us a flashback episode. The episode shows us that when Camille and Ian were about to move to Paris, they broke up just as Ian was about to propose. Quinn, meanwhile, had a career that made her mother proud. But as it made her unhappy, she quit to open her own business, which disappoints her mother very much. Tye gets dumped by his girlfriend Melissa (Ebonee Noel) after revealing everything about her husband and how she suddenly left him. In the flashback episode, Angie was a rising star, but when her single failed to achieve any success, it was dropped.

The end

The last two episodes of Harlem take us back to the current timeline. After a dress rehearsal of Get Out: The Musical Tye tells Angie that the musical is terrible. Quinn keeps JJ as a way to bond with her and therefore help her relationship with Shawn. But, as such, Quinn ends up bonding with Isabela (Juani Feliz), and Quinn asks Isabela to go out with him. Tye tries and fails to get Brandon to sign the divorce papers, which can mean a nasty divorce battle is underway.

Angie learns that one of the main stars of Get Out: The Musical was forced to withdraw. Thus, Angie is promoted to the rank of the main stars.
