Monarch Episode 6 End: Who’s At Nikki’s Door?
Nikki won the award and received a boost in her career. However, Gigi is disappointed by the loss, and her animosity towards her sister grows. In the final moments of the episode, Kayala tries to console and comfort Gigi. She encourages Gigi to forgive Nikki and move past their disagreement. However, Gigi is still angry about Nikki stealing her song and decides to confront her sister. Meanwhile, Nikki is celebrating her victory at home when someone knocks on her doorstep. The next time we saw Nikki, she was covered in blood and had a physical altercation with someone.
Earlier in the episode, Anna came home after the awards ceremony. However, her mother picks up on her lies and scolds Anna for seeing Ace. Kat insists that Anna should not make her relationship with Romans personal. So, she heads out to talk to Nikki. Kat does not want Ice near her daughter, and her conversation with Nikki is unlikely to be pleasant. However, there is no good reason to turn their interaction to violence. Nikki is shocked to see the person at her door, and their visit seems unexpected. So, the person is likely to be Clive. The couple’s marriage is close to breaking point. Hence, the two would likely get into a physical altercation.
In the end, it’s possible that Gigi, Kat, and Clive were all at Nikki’s doorstep at different times of the night. However, one argument went too far, and Nikki ended up inadvertently hurting one of the three. After we saw Nikki covered in blood, I immediately called my dad for help. Albee takes a gun before heading to the crime scene. The episode ends with Nikki taking Albee’s help in dealing with the situation, which leads to the murder which we see in the flash forward from the first episode. Hence, the ending of the episode narrows down the possibility that the dead person will be Gigi, Cat, or Clive.
