Ilang taon na ba talaga si Celine and how can she not know her own age? She then asks Denise to explain Beyoncé's "Formation". This leads to Denise sharing stories about racism, as well as her concerns about the issues her son will face as a member of a minority. As usual, napunta na naman ang usapan sa TV at movies. Denise said she doesn't want to hear Celine talk about Buffy again -- but Celine talks about Buffy anyway.
