Soon, Paper Boi will take the stage, and the VIP family will be escorted to their seats. Darius prays for Paper Boi before taking the stage. They are upset, though, when a random fan appears on stage and interacts with the audience. Paper Boi plays for the audience after the man is removed from the stage. After the show, a weary Paper Boi returns to his green room. However, he notices that his cellphone is missing from the room. Earn believes that the little child Alfred encountered earlier may have stolen the phone while seeking for it.

Earn hunts for the child with the assistance of security and discovers that he is being hurried out of the venue owing to a cancer problem. Earn, perplexed, rushes to the kid’s side to look for the phone. However, when he fails to locate the phone, the audience boos him. Earn returns to the green room, and Alfred becomes irritated because he has lost the phone. Socks speculates that the man on stage may have taken the phone. Earn interacts with the venue manager and discovers his name is Wiley. He is the nephew of the venue management. Earn contacts Wiley and requests that he return to the location. However, things quickly escalate when Wiley begins to outwit Earn and Alfred.

Atlanta Season 3 Episode 5: Will Paper Boi Find His Phone?

Alfred/Paper Boi becomes increasingly anxious as the show develops since his phone has gone stolen. Earn contacts Wiley, but Socks threatens him with death over the phone, complicating matters. Nonetheless, Wiley arrives at the location because he does not want to lose out on the opportunity to meet Paper Boi. As a result, Earn and Paper Boi use the chance to question Wiley about the pone. Although Wiley insists that he did not steal Paper Boi’s phone, his responses are cocky. As a result, Earn and Paper Boi became persuaded that Wiley stole the phone. The cousins employ a variety of intimidation and interrogation techniques on Wiley, but to no avail.

Finally, Paper Boi makes a heartfelt plea to Wiley to return his phone. Wiley, on the other hand, tells the story of his tragic background and sings a song for Paper Boi. Paper Boi allows Wiley to depart because he has no other options. A sad Paper Boi boards the bus to the next location. However, before the episode ends, viewers see Socks with Paper Boi’s phone. As a result, it is proven that Wiley did not answer the phone.

Although the episode does not explain Socks’ purpose for taking the phone, it is clear that Paper Boi’s phone carries important information about his personal life. Earn had previously offered to buy the rapper a new phone, but he maintained that the data on the phone was more valuable than the gadget itself. As a result, it’s likely that Socks intends to use the data from Paper Boi’s phone for personal gain. Socks has gotten surprisingly close to Paper Boi and his gang in a short period of time. However, his latest activities have put the famed rapper up for an unpleasant awakening in the future. As a result, the finale most likely foreshadows Paper Boi’s demise at the hands of Socks.
