So, let’s take a look at what happened previously on Kenan.
Recap: Kenan Season 1 Episode 2
Last week’s episode of Kenan Season 1 titled “Hard News” opened up with a strong discussion between Kenan, Mika, and Pam. As they discuss their daily news quality, which might make them successful but at the end of the day are garbage. Kenan turns the whole conversation around and ignites a conversation stating how their show needs to focus on Hard News. True to the facts, and that could have some impact on the audience. Although it seemed like a callback to Mika, the conversation really intrigues Mika to start working on the Hard News all over again.
Back home, Kenan, Rick, Gary, and Kenan’s daughters are having a healthy breakfast when the conversation on clearing mom’s old closet breakout. Kenan shows no interest in going inside his ex-wife Cori’s closet since inside, he feels it might only make him sad and miss her. But, he doesn’t show much of that in front of everyone who all agree on clearing the closet. Now, Kenan has to follow them too.
Back home, the guys and Kenan’s daughters are all digging in Kenan’s ex-wife Cori’s stuff from the closet. From her church hat to a headshot picture, there are a few slick memories that they reminisce until Kenan finds a restraining order against her. From a man named Ron Sherman Willis. The paper breaks Kenan’s heart, who realizes his ex-wife kept dark secrets from him. In the end, he decides to put the things back they were and forget about it.
On the other side, Mika calls up a meeting with her employees and starts turning the way her company works. She orders everyone to pitch good ideas related to Hard News which is true to its intent. The employees still try to pitch really cliche news weather ideas, or just soft news turned upside down.
Visting Ron Sherman Willis
Back home a night, Kenan can’t sleep all thinking about Cori keeping secrets from him. He wakes up Rick and Gary to figure out what this could be about. While Gary comes up with an affair to which Kenan might not agree, but Rick does. In the end, Kenan gets this Ron Sherman Willis’s address from the order and decides to pay a visit to him.
All three guys go to this Ron Sherman Willis’ house and peep through his window. They see a solid-muscled man practicing fighting moves around in his garage. The attention diverts when they see Cori’s same headshot picture framed at this man’s house. Worrying, they make a sound and try to run away in the car. In the process, they destroy this man’s front yard.,
The next day, Kenan is back at his work, driving around with Mika. She informs him that his conversation from the last show really inspired her. So, she is back on reporting hard news all over again. The first news they are reporting turned out about someone who destroyed a man’s front yard. Coincidentally, it’s the same one Kenan, Rick, and Gary destroyed last night.
