In the second episode of Rel, “Laundry Room,” newly single Rel (Lil Rel Howery) finds the motivation to get off the couch and invites his Dad (Sinbad), brother Nat (Jordan L. Jones), and friend Brittany (Jessica “Jess Hilarious” Moore) to brunch. But his plan gets derailed when all of his clothes are held hostage in his laundry room by a local gang, the Lords. Think Miss Jenkins is going to help Rel?
