‘Grown-ish’ After coming clean to Luca, Doug officially asks Kiki out


After telling Luca that they’ve been hooking up, Doug wants to take Kiki out in public. Kiki doesn’t say yes right away in this EXCLUSIVE teaser of ‘grown-ish.’

Doug arrives at Kiki’s door with a new black eye, thanks to Luca. Kiki immediately inquires as to what happened to Doug’s face. Doug states in this EXCLUSIVE preview of the February 3 episode of grown-ish, «I informed your brother about our secret little hookups, and he took it out on my face.»

Kiki apologizes on Luca’s behalf. «You know how much my brother can be a jerk,» she tells Doug. Doug, thankfully, bears no resentment.

«It’s all right. «I mean, my friendship with Luca is definitely over,» Doug explains. «However, you know what? It’s just the way it is. And you were absolutely correct. We’re two grown-ups, after all, and we should be able to do whatever we want.»

Kiki is relieved that he’s finally being honest with Luca. Doug invites Kiki out for a «celebratory drink in public» now that their connection has been revealed. They don’t have to hide anymore.

«I kind of have plans or anything tonight,» Kiki says after stumbling over her words a little. Doug is taken aback and thinks Kiki is being evasive about the situation. He asks Kiki, «Are you going on a date?»

Diggy Simmons spoke with HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY ahead of the show’s comeback and was asked if Doug’s ex Jazz is still a factor in his romantic life. Diggy stated, «She’ll always be a factor.» «I believe she was Doug’s first love,» says the narrator.

They had spent so much of their time in college together. That was extremely significant. She’ll always remain dear to his heart, but I believe he’s got other things on his mind right now, like school and navigating the situation with Kiki and Luca’s ignorance, so I think he’s got a lot on his plate right now.»
