Raven's Home Wiki
I mean, I may not be good at laundry, you know, or cooking, but I can redecorate a bedroom, like a boss!
Chelsea to Nia.

"Big Trouble in Little Apartment"[2] is the second episode in Season 1 of Raven's Home. It first aired on July 28, 2017 to 1.66 million viewers. [3]



Unbeknownst to Raven, Nia is starting to feel like their apartment isn’t big enough for everyone and turns to her dad Devon for help.[4]

Full Plot

Now that Chelsea is living with the Baxters, everyone seems to be happy except Nia. Raven gets to live with her best friend; and Booker gets to have a little brother roommate, Levi to play with. But Nia had to give up her bedroom and start sleeping on the couch, with zero privacy. She tells Tess that she doesn't like sleeping on the couch but is trying to put up with the situation to make everyone else happy.

Devon, Raven's ex-husband, comes to pick up the kids in the morning and tells them that he has a big interview coming up. Raven and Devon say that even though they're divorced, they're still friends and happy to be raising their kids together.

Meanwhile, Booker is trying his best to impress Levi. After running out of games to play, Levi mentions that he used to have a trampoline. Booker asks Raven for a trampoline but she refuses. When Booker gets a vision of Levi moving out, he becomes more determined than ever to get a trampoline for their bedroom. So, Booker sneaks past his mom and orders a trampoline online for same-day delivery.

Nia's privacy concerns are escalated when Raven starts embarrassing her by holding Nia's bra and telling everyone about it. While Booker is trying to impress Levi so that he doesn't move out, Nia tries talking to him about her situation. But Booker doesn't have time for her. No one seems to have time for Nia. So, Nia is left with just one option. She leaves.

After realizing that Nia is missing, Raven and Booker track her to the expensive Parlez Vouz Cafe. They sneak into the cafe and hide behind the bushes and objects to spy on Nia. It turns out that Nia is meeting up with her dad, Devon. She tells Devon about the living situation. She asks to move in with him. Devon reveals that he passed the interview and got the job. But the job is in Dallas. So, if Nia were to move in with him, she would have to leave town and the rest of the family. Raven and Booker's spying is jeopardized when Booker messes the coffee machine. They're forced to leave.

Later that evening, Raven and Nia talk about Nia's living situation. They agree to figure it out together. But then Chelsea has even better news. She reveals that she sold Booker and Levi's unauthorized trampoline and bought a bunked bed so that she can move into Raven's bedroom. This way, Nia gets her old bedroom back and be happy.
