When Jaleesa plans a romantic anniversary celebration for her and Walter, the two of them take opposing views on visitation rights in the dormitory. Walter pulls rank and informs Jaleesa that he's the final authority. Jaleesa's not so sure she likes Walter wearing this new hat. Once business and pleasure are mixed, it's rough sailing for the normally happy couple. Will Walter compromise for love or is there trouble ahead in paradise for he and Jaleesa?
