Zora Finally Leaves Isaiah
Season 3 Episode 312
Aired on 11/14/2018
Her family tried to warn her, but Zora didn't listen. Now, finally, she realizes that she no longer wants to live under Isaiah's suffocating control. With her soon-to-be ex preparing to go on tour, Zora sees an opportunity to escape and return to her family in Memphis.
But Isaiah isn't going to make it easy for Zora once he figures out what she's trying to do. "Wait, wait, what?" he says, grabbing her shoulder. "We both leaving."
"No, I'm going back to Memphis," she tells him. "I mean, I've done what you've asked me to do. I've dealt with the side-chick crap. I've been your assistant, videographer, editor, graphic designer, mama, maid."
"I didn't ask you to do half of that stuff you run around doing," Isaiah counters, defensively.
"Because I was bored," Zora replies.
But Isaiah takes offense and turns the tables on Zora. "So, I'm boring now? That it?" he begins. "Well, guess what? You're pretty boring too. You know what I'm talking about."
Fed up, Zora rolls her eyes and moves toward the door, but Isaiah is far from finished. "See, I never should've came back for your ungrateful ass. Never should have messed with you in the first place," he tells her in a condescending tone. "Should have stuck it in your cousin like she wanted."
Zora opens the door to leave, but Isaiah slams it shut. When Zora tells Isaiah to move, he challenges her: "Make me."
When she tries to push him out of the way, Isaiah grabs her by the shoulders and slams her against the counter. He pins her down, grinding against her as he tries to close his hands around her throat. As they grapple, Zora manages to get her hands free and, grabbing the back of Isaiah's head, slams his forehead on the counter. Knowing she has mere seconds before her attacker regains his feet, Zora thinks fast and begins livestreaming Isaiah just as he is about to lunge again—stopping him dead in his tracks.
"We're on live, Isaiah," Zora says as she opens the door to leave. "Now, let everyone know you're going to keep away from me while I walk out this door."
All Isaiah can do is seethe in silence as Zora slips out, closing the door behind her.
