What I Watched Today
(rambling, random thoughts & annoyingly detailed recaps from real time TV watching)
Alexis and Kristina are having a picnic in the park. Alexis tells Kristina that she doesn’t know if her testimony helped or hurt Julian. Kristina tells Alexis to give herself a break and chill. Alexis asks how registration went, and Kristina says you know how it is. Alexis doesn’t, and asks how is it?
Ava talks to herself, saying that all she needs is a referral from the Prince of Darkness, and sell her soul to get her face back. Oh for Pete’s sake. I don’t believe Nikolas is dead, but even if Valentin killed him, he’s not all that bad. She won’t choose vanity over justice for Nikolas, and puts Valentin’s card away again. I note that she hasn’t thrown it away, so maybe she will be choosing vanity yet. Griff knocks at the door. He says he was out for a walk, and asks if she’d like to join him and give the world another go.
Josslyn meets Oscar at the bridge. She says it sounded urgent. He asks if she wants to go to a concert in the park tonight.
Michael and Nelle have their picnic basket ready. She’s glad he’s taking a break from his responsibilities, but Nelle’s phone rings. She says she’ll be right there, and tells Michael it was the police. They want her to answer some questions about Sonny’s shooting.
Dante says he got new information on the gun. They found a posting on the Dark Web about a gun for sale, and they’re going to ask the guy some questions. He tells Sonny whatever secret he’s trying to hide is going to come out, so spill it now.
Jason asks for a word with an officer at the station.
Carly storms into Sam’s room, saying she knows what Sam did to Sonny. Carly is starting to get on my nerves.
Griff walks in and Ava says not to be rude, but she didn’t invite him in. He tells her the fresh air will do her good. She says she doesn’t need to go out. She just orders something and it shows up. She says she’s not afraid of the world; the world is afraid of her. Every time she goes out the townspeople come after her with torches and pitchforks. He tells her doctor’s orders; she needs to get out. She asks if it’s the doctor or priest talking. Griff says maybe he’s asking as a friend.
Alexis says she doesn’t blame Kristina if she’s uncomfortable with the new school year. She says she’s not, but thanks for the reminder. Alexis says it’s a fresh start, and a chance to reinvent herself. Kristina says she likes herself the way she is. She asks Alexis what’s wrong, and sees Parker standing behind her.
Oscar tells Josslyn that the concert is classical, and then goes full-on jazz. He thinks she’ll love it. Josslyn is about to text Trina, but Oscar says he’d like it to be just them. She asks like a date? and he says exactly.
Sonny says the gun wasn’t his, and asks why Dante is hounding him. The Big Garve ambushed him and tried to kill him. He’s dead; isn’t that enough? Dante thinks that Sonny is trying to cover up for a third shooter, and tells him he should teach a master class in stalling.
Carly starts throwing stuff around. Sam says she didn’t know what she was doing, but Carly says there’s no getting away from this, and puts her hand on Sam’s throat. Sam wakes up (as I suspected, but that doesn’t let Carly off the hook for getting on my nerves). Carly is there, and says she had a bad dream.
Parker exchanges pleasantries with Kristina. Alexis says it’s a surprise, at least for her. She finds out that Parker is teaching at PCU, and she hopes Kristina didn’t enroll in the class. Kristina says no, but Molly did.
At the park, Griff says something about a boombox, and Ava tells him to be careful or people will think he hasn’t updated his tech since the 80s. He says, look, made her laugh, but he can’t see her face. She tells him consider himself lucky. The worst are the people who deliberately don’t look at her. He tells her sometimes people don’t know what to do or say, so they do nothing, but it’s their problem not hers. She says easy for him to say; he’s not living in her skin. He tells her she’s right, but he knows her life isn’t over. It just shifted a little.
Josslyn sees Michael and Nelle. Michael introduces himself, since Oscar has already met Nelle. Josslyn talks about the concert. Michael says Nelle covered for her as long as she could, and now’s the time to come clean about the shell casing.
Carly hopes she didn’t disturb Sam. She asks if it’s the disease causing the dream, but Sam says it was just a dream. Carly asks if she wants to talk about it, and wonders what Sam had to tell her yesterday. Sam doesn’t want to bother her, but Carly says nonsense; they’re like family, and Sam can tell her anything. Jason walks in. He says Sam needs her rest; when she gets home with the kids, that’s not going to happen. Carly says she’ll visit another time, hopefully at home. Jason and Sam hug. Carly watches through the window.
Kristina tells Alexis that Molly needs the class for her minor, and Parker says she’ll be honest and fair. Alexis is more concerned about her respecting boundaries. Parker wishes them a good night. Alexis wonders why no one told her. She thinks they came down on her for not being honest, and she felt horrible and vowed to do better. She suggests they do the same, since open and honest communication goes both ways.
Ava asks Griff about surgery. He tells her go easy with online searches. She asks if he’s afraid she’ll get sucked in by an online quack. He tells her to bring whatever she finds to him, and he’ll help. She wonders why he’s interested in her case, and he says she’s not a case, but a person. Maybe she’s pitying herself and projecting onto other people. She says that’s what therapist suggested, and he says maybe therapy wasn’t a waste of time after all.
Under the guise of getting lemonade, Alexis follows Parker. She asks Parker wth she’s doing?
Josslyn is afraid Carly will freak when she finds out she’d been at the construction site. Michael says Nelle isn’t going to perjure herself so she doesn’t get in trouble. Oscar volunteers to go, since he’s the one who found it. Josslyn gives him the necklace, and he says he’ll call when they’re done. Michael says it was cool of him to step up like that. Josslyn says he is cool, and not to blame him for something she did. He tells her that if you break rules, you have to expect the consequences. Carly is going to find out the truth, and it would be best if it came from her.
Carly visits Sonny. He says he’s walking around as much as he can. She calls him a model patient, and says when he’s good, she’s suspicious. She tells him about Sam being upset and how Jason shut it down before she could talk. She says that she got the feeling you get when everyone knows something and you’re out of the loop. Sonny says there’s something he needs to tell her.
Alexis asks Parker if it’s a weird coincidence. Parker says that she was offered tenure. Alexis hopes she doesn’t blow it over a co-ed. She asks if Parker is coming back for round three. Parker says she didn’t know Kristina would be there, and Alexis says it’s her home town. She wonders how Parker’s wife feels about it, and asks if she’s going to derail Kristina’s life again, now that she’s gotten it together. Kristina says that’s enough.
Griff and Ava share a flask. Suddenly, Griff thinks something stung him. She asks if he’s been stung by a bee before. It appears he’s allergic.
Sam tells Jason about her dream and how Carly was yelling, and said she’d make her pay. He says it’s just a nightmare. Sam says that Carly was there when she woke up, and couldn’t have been kinder. The guilt isn’t going away, and she thinks Carly will understand. Jason says she will, but please wait until the investigation is closed.
Carly asks Sonny how worried she should be. He says he didn’t want to tell her until things calmed down. Michael and Josslyn interrupt. He says Josslyn has something she needs to tell Carly. Carly says it’s her night for it. Josslyn says it’s about the shell casing. Nelle wasn’t the one who found it; she was covering for her. Oscar found it when they went to the construction site.
Oscar tells Dante about finding the casing. He swears they had no idea Sonny was there. Dante says it’s good he came forward, but since he’s a minor, Dante has to tell his parents. Oscar gives Dante his mom’s number. Nelle says he did good, and he says he hopes so.
Dante goes to the interrogation room. Gun dude wants lawyer. He says they’ll just find out they have him dead to rights. Money has been going to his account in exchange for guns. He’s going away for a long time, and Dante wants to make it easier on him. He shows gun dude a picture of the gun, and says all they want to know is who he sold it to.
Kristina apologizes. Parker says she admires how much Kristina’s mother cares about her. She has to leave, and says she’ll see her around, but probably not. Kristina says Alexis doesn’t trust her to handle her own life. Alexis says she doesn’t trust Kristina to tell her about it. Kristina says she’s not a victim. Just because Alexis can’t own up to her bad choices, doesn’t mean Kristina can’t. She immediately apologizes, but Alexis says she’s right, and tells her to enjoy the concert.
Ava brings Griff back to the apartment. Griff thinks they should go to the hospital, but Ava tells him to quit whining. He reminds her that only one of them has a medical degree, but Ava says Kiki is mildly allergic, and she has a homemade remedy on hand. Some kind of lavender oil. Before he whines to the hospital, they should see if they can handle it there. He takes his shirt off, and I hear a collective wow.
Carly asks why Josslyn didn’t tell her. Josslyn says that she didn’t want Carly to know she was sneaking off with Oscar. Carly asks what if she got caught in the middle of the gunfire or demolition? Josslyn says she knows, it scared her almost as much as telling Carly. Sonny says that they saved his life, but she has to be honest with her mom. Josslyn wants to go back to the concert, but Carly tells her that she’s home all weekend now. Michael stops the argument before it starts, telling Josslyn to come with him. Outside, he tells her don’t push it; she got off light. Sonny asks if Carly isn’t being too hard. She says lying by omission is still lying. D’oh!
Jason tells Sam that the police can still press charges, and she should concentrate on healing. The kids need their mom. Jason’s phone rings. He has to take care of something, and says he’ll be back.
Dante says only one gun like that was sold in the past month. Gun dude says they don’t use real names. Dante says asks him what the guy looked like, and he says he sold it to a woman.
Ava says Griff will smell great and the pain will go away quickly. She massages the oil into his back, and then it’s his turn to say wow. He tells her that he might have the MD, but she’s a miracle worker. He can’t thank her enough. They look at each other.
Kristina asks Parker if she wants company. Parker says sure. They look at each other. Lots of meaningful looks today.
Carly tells Sonny that she’s grateful everything turned out okay, but who is this girl sneaking out? Sonny says Carly has done worse, but she says she doesn’t want Josslyn to be like her; when did she turn into a rebel? Sonny laughs, saying she is too, and when he’s not pissed off, he finds it attractive. Sometimes he finds it attractive because it pisses him off. Carly asks if he’s flirting or stalling. He tells her that he’s rescheduling his PT, but promises he’ll go. He’s alive, they’re all safe, and that’s what matters. She kisses him.
Sam looks at her kids’ pictures, and says she’ll be home soon. She wonders how she’ll make peace with what she’s done.
Dante asks gun dude what she looked like. A lawyer walks in, and says no more questions. Dante says it’s not over. When he leaves the room, an officer approaches him, and tells him that the third gun is missing.
On the bridge, the officer Jason talked to earlier gives him the gun. He asks if he and Mr. Corrinthos are square now, and Jason says that he’ll be grateful.
At the station, the officer tells Dante that Jason was at the station earlier, waiting to talk to Jordan.
Jason takes gun out of the bag, removes the clip, wipes it down, and throws it into the water.
Next time, Griff says he’s tempted, Curtis stops Finn from chasing Hayden, and Franco returns.
The Haves and the Have Nots
We ended last week with Charles giving Candace the choice of throwing Benny under the bus for Quincy’s murder. Or not.
Candace tells Charles that it isn’t an option, but Charles says that Benny was at the scene. She wonders how he knows that, but says she’ll turn herself in first. He says he never knew that kind of love. She says he has children, and she read he was madly in love with his wife. He tells her that’s true, and asks why she forged Benny’s name on the loan documents. She’s shocked at how much he knows, and asks if he knows what color panties she’s wearing. He says the story would have worked, but she says she wasn’t planning on going to his inauguration anyway. She asks him to leave. He says she turned down the gift of a lifetime and she says, no, he did.
There’s a knock at Wyatt’s door. Anna answers and rolls in a suitcase. She tells Wyatt she won’t take up much space. She asks how he’s feeling, and he says the daytime isn’t as much of a problem. She tells him to fill out his questionnaire. She picks it up, and asks what his goals in life are. He says she’ll think it’s stupid, but he always wanted to be a fireman. His parents thought it was stupid; they wanted him to work for the family company, like his sister had, and they saw how that turned out. Anna asks about Amanda, but he says he never talks about it. She says she’ll check into getting him a fireman’s exam. Dr. Jarvis knows a lot of people, so if everything goes well, he might be able to get in. She says his first goal is doing research. He says ever since he was a kid, his life was planned out for him. Anna thinks there’s more, but Wyatt says nothing he wants to share. He asks what she wants to do. There’s a camera on the table, and he tells her that it was left by the guy who lived there before him. She suggests they take pictures of firehouses for inspiration.
Wyatt’s phone rings. It’s new DA George who informs him that old DA Jennifer is dead. They want to talk to him – just a formality. Wyatt suggests they come to his place right now. He tells Anna that the DA wants to talk to him. She wonders if they should call a lawyer, but he says he didn’t do anything wrong. (Well, there’s his first mistake.) Anna says she’s his shadow, so they’ll wait together.
Veronica takes Hanna in to see Benny. Kathryn waits with Mitch. She wonders what Benny is being questioned about, and asks Mitch how long he’s known him. Mitch says ten years, and he’s a good friend, but he doesn’t know Hanna that well though. Kathryn asks if Hanna knows who he is, and he says he’s just Mitch. She says that whenever she tries to be just Kathryn, Hargrave comes to the surface. He says that life isn’t for him. She asks if he’s dating anyone, and he says, no, why? She says she’ll be single soon, and she could use a man life him. He asks how much she pays, but she says she doesn’t – he’ll be paying her. He asks if she’s joking, and says he’s out of there. She says he doesn’t know what he’s missing.
Benny tells Hanna that he’s sorry. She asks what’s going on and why he’s there. He doesn’t want her to worry, but she says it’s too late for that. Benny says he can’t talk. Hanna asks what happened, and he says nothing. She asks if he killed Quincy, and he says he already told her no. She says there were two people and one was a man, so who did it? He says he doesn’t know. Veronica asks if he’s sure. Hanna wants him to look her in the eye and tell her, and he does. He says they asked him about it, and she says what’s up with the Secret Service? He says her guess is as good as his, and they wanted his DNA. Veronica is like, what? She calls for the guard, saying that she’s talking to a supervisor about these clowns.
Benny tells Hanna that he’s telling her the truth. She says she knows, and knows that he didn’t kill Quincy. She asks if he’s sure it was Jeffrey, and he says he is. She says it’s that girl (meaning Candace). Her baby is dead, and she hasn’t even called. Benny thinks maybe she doesn’t know. He says Hanna should call her, but Hanna can’t be bothered, saying she doesn’t care. She tells him not to trust that whore, and that Kathryn can find him another lawyer. She wonders what Candace has done now, saying she’s a walking tsunami. She wishes she could have kept him and Quincy Jr. away from her. She begs God for some relief. Benny says they’ll make it through this.
Veronica makes a call outside. She gives someone the names Harrison and Downs, saying they claim to be from the Secret Service or Homeland Security, and they’re not telling her anything. She asks for information on them, and says she’ll be waiting. She goes back inside and sits. Justin goes to the desk and gives the desk sergeant some task so she leaves. He grabs Veronica by the arm, and she says, “Girl, you’re strong.” Omg, she’s the best at being the worst. He tells her to delete the video. She tells him to do it; go ahead and take it from her. He tells her that she has no idea what he’s capable of, and she says his wife doesn’t know what he’s capable of, but she’ll find out in open court. She says he has a nervous twitch, and asks if he’s all right. He asks her to please delete the video. She says that she asked him to stay away from her son, and instead he went from stairwells to rooms. He apologizes, and asks for the video. She says she won’t be doing that. He asks if she’s going through with this, and she tells him, you bet your sweet ass. He says she won’t like the outcome. She asks if he’s going to hit her with rainbows and feathers, and I laugh. She sits back down, and Justin leaves.
There’s a knock at Erica’s hotel room door. It’s Candace. Erica tells her that she should have called. Candace says that she’s frustrated. She just met a very powerful man. She thought she had him, and thought if she played it right, she could get more out of him, since she got him to go crazy. When he drinks, he’s passive and nice, but when he’s sober, he’s like a beast. He knew everything about her. Erica says it’s kind of scary. Candace says he offered to change her life if she gave up Benny for Quincy’s murder. Erica thinks that’s not a bad idea, and Candace cracks her one across the face, telling her not to forget her place. Erica apologizes. Candace says she’s just stressed, and talking to him is like talking to a snake. She tells Erica that the dress she borrowed had a scent, and it was the cheap cologne that War wears. Erica says she doesn’t deal with him. Candace says they’re cool, but she’ll throw Erica out a window if she’s lying. She asks for another dress. Erica offers for her to stay there, and Candace says she should have David’s credit card by now. Erica says she’s working on it, and Candace says she’d better be. She takes a dress and leaves.
Erica runs to the phone and calls War. She tells him to get this bitch; Candace just slapped her. He says he’s working on some stuff right now, and he’ll call her back. Erica says Candace is at the hotel, but he says he knows.
War wants to head to Mitch’s family restaurant. One of his gang reminds him that’s mob territory, but he doesn’t care.
Veronica tells Kathryn that she’s waiting for a phone call. Kathryn tells Hanna they have a lot of work to do. Hanna says she almost forgot. Mitch says he’s sorry, and she says it’s not his fault. Mitch and Hanna leave, but George walks in, and tells Kathryn he wants to talk to her about Jennifer; they found her body. She asks what happened, and he says they don’t know, but were hoping she could tell them. Kathryn’s house was the last place Jennifer made a call from. Veronica tells George that he knows better than this, and tells Kathryn not to say anything else. She says he needs a warrant, and he says he’ll get one. She tells him to do that, and he says she represents a lot of people. She tells Kathryn she’ll meet her at home in fifteen minutes.
Jeffrey visits Melissa, who rolls her eyes when she sees him. She tells him to get out. He says he was thinking about her. She doesn’t care, and he says he’s sorry about everything. She tells him good-bye. He says he doesn’t want her hurting herself, and this will work out. She asks if her father will come back to life. He says no, and she tells him that she has nothing else to say.
Melissa’s mother, Doris, comes into her room, and tells her to stop acting this way. She asks Jeffrey if Melissa is giving him a hard time. Jeffrey says no, and he’ll leave. Doris tells him to stay, and says that Melissa did this twice as a teenager, now this. She says Melissa needs to grow up at some point. Jeffrey says there’s treatment. Doris asks who’s paying for it? She’s not into taking handouts, but she hears he’s into taking hand j*bs; Melissa told her everything. Melissa glares at her like Regan looking at Karras in The Exorcist. Jeffrey tells her that he’s gay, but for her information, anyone get a hand j*b. Doris tells Melissa that she’s got to stop this. She can’t bury Melissa’s father and take care of this. She says it’s best for all of them, and Melissa asks what about her? Doris calls her selfish, and says if she has the baby, everything will be okay. She asks Jeffrey to forgive her daughter and tell his mother she’ll do better. She says nice to meet you, like this is an everyday thing. Melissa says, see? Just like his mother, and tell her again why she wants to live. Jeffrey says he doesn’t know how, but it will get better. She asks him to go. He says he’s sorry, and she says that she is too.
There’s a knock at Candace’s door. It’s Charles. She doesn’t want to deal with him, but he has something to tell her. She doesn’t care as long as he’s not messing with her brother. He says it’s about her son. He was asked to speak about violence, and her son was the one caught in the crossfire. She thinks Charles had something to do with it, but he says he would never. She asks where he is, and Charles tells her that he was shot; he’s not going to make it. I guess he’s telling her like the old joke about the cat on the roof. She asks where, and Landon tells her the fleabag motel. She starts to cry, and Charles says he’s sorry. She tells them to get out, and slams the door behind them. Candace weeps, and says, oh God, over and over.
Outside the Cryer mansion, Veronica hands Kathryn matches, and starts pouring gasoline on everything. Kathryn asks what she’s doing, and she says that she loves starting fires, and if Jim is in there, it will be more fun. She tells Kathryn that the evidence has to be destroyed. Kathryn isn’t keen on burning down her house, but Veronica says no evidence, no crime, and she’s not being dragged into this. She says to light the damn match. Kathryn does, and Veronica asks if she’s sure Jim isn’t in there. Kathryn says, who gives a damn? and throws the match on the gas. They step away and watch, like a twisted Lucy and Ethel.
Next time, Landon tells Charles it’s asinine, Candace asks Erica if she’s with War, and Mitch tells Mama Rose that he’s delivering War.
Below Deck Mediterranean Season Two Reunion
Or as I call it, the cheap-ass reunion that Andy does with everyone crammed in the clubhouse.
First, wtf is Hannah wearing? Everyone looks gorgeous, but she’s wearing a very odd necklace that looks like a car part. Andy tells us everyone is excited about the reunion happening, but you couldn’t tell that by the budget. He asks who’s working together, and Hannah picks her perfect crew from whatever season. Moving on.
Captain Sandy is up. They show clips where Hannah thinks she’s a micromanager, but that wasn’t the vibe I got during the overall season. Andy asks the captain if it bothers her to be mistaken for chief stew, but that’s a no. I didn’t think so. Sandy is a pretty laid-back chick. It also reminds me of an embarrassing moment when I thought a woman who worked for an airline was a flight attendant, and she was a pilot. She was cool about it, but I wanted to die. Next up is Bobby being a jerk. Lauren is briefly in the hot seat about not having Bobby’s back. Oh wow. They have last names. Um… Lauren isn’t Chef Ben, even though his name pops up underneath her. Bobby insists both Hannah and Lauren are lying, even though Hannah hasn’t said anything about him… yet. Malia thinks about doing Wes her laundry. Bobby blabs about some party where he claims Lauren threatened something, and Andy actually says what we’re all thinking – who cares? Everyone has text messages about everyone. I wonder if Captain Sandy has left by now.
Andy talks about Bobby treating Hannah poorly, including on Watch What Happens Live. Andy asks if anything has happened between Hannah and Malia. Malia says not yet, and Hannah tells her see you later. Ha-ha! Andy asks if Lauren went out with Bobby to get on the show – she’d accompanied him to WWHL – but she says that was just a coincidence. A producer approached her.
We move on to Chef Adam and the Onion Incident. He claims he couldn’t make a tasty broth without onions, and then it turned spiteful. Captain Sandy says to her knowledge, she’s never had a chef do that before, but had she known he lied to her three times, she would have had no choice but to fire him. She says she’s disheartened about how he treated several of the crew members. It wasn’t the guy she thought she knew. He says he regrets it, but blames it on being heartbroken. Malia says it’s rough to go through, but some of it was unacceptable. Wes says it’s not an excuse.
The spotlight is on Hannah hooking up with Jason. Andy asks if making out with a charter guest is ever okay, and asks if he was her kryptonite. She suggests we look at Jason with no shirt. Andy asks Bugs about going to Bobby first about the texts on the iPad, and she says she wasn’t being malicious; she just ran into him first. Bugs asks why Hannah didn’t talk to her about it, and Hannah uses Bugs’s acting experience as a reason not to trust her. Andy asks Bobby why it was okay for him to hook up with a guest. He says he didn’t care if Hannah hooked up with anyone. He thought if there was love interest in a charter guest, go for it. Captain Sandy is like, no, just no. We find out that he’s gotten together with Paula since the charter. Andy brings up Jason having been in the WWHL audience, and saying he’s not the one who went in for the kiss. Hannah says he likes to stir the pot, and other than hellos on social media, they haven’t kept in touch. Captain Sandy is disappointed that she wasn’t told the truth. She says it’s about putting them on the right path. Hannah says she didn’t lie, but the captain says she watched the show. Hannah tells her all she saw was the door close, but I watched the show too – more than once – and she ran after him, and knocked on the door before it closed.
Andy tells us that Malia spent most of the season deciding where to park her love boat. Ha-ha! He’s so corny. We go over all the back and forth, and the texts, and how she knew Adam before the charter. Andy asks about how they met, but there isn’t much more information than we knew already. FYI, they only kissed and there was a connection. Andy stirs it by saying Adam had said that he loved her. He says his father knew the day he met his mother that she was the one. Not that he felt like that. Malia says everything was too intense on the boat, and Adam agrees. Andy asks if they regret lying about it, and they both say they do. Malia says it wasn’t intentional, but after Bobby and Lauren’s history came out, they decided it was best to keep it quiet. Wes says that Adam never said anything to him, or it would have changed the ballgame. Max talks about them saying hello as though they were meeting for the first time. Andy says they’ve gotten a lot of viewer feedback about Malia leading both Adam and Wes on. She admits to doing her fair share, but being on a yacht for six weeks heightens your emotions, and you don’t get to live a normal life. Plus, the cameras. Adam keeping quiet for so long is brought up again. Why doesn’t everyone just agree that he’s a big baby and move on? Andy asks if Wes and Malia are seeing each other, and she says every now and then, but they’re in different places. Then we find out they’re staying in the same room. Wes says it’s good they got off the boat, so they could date normally. Then it comes out that they’re an official couple and going to South Africa together. And meeting each other’s parents. Andy tells them don’t lie to daddy. Everyone seems pretty friendly at this point, but Andy wants to hear that Adam is hurting. He doesn’t give Andy the satisfaction though, and says they’re a great couple.
Andy asks who’s hooked up with each other, and it’s nobody. Just kisses here and there. They talk about Adam slut-shaming Malia, but she’s over it. Chrissy Teigen had a poll about giving vs getting a wedgie. It distresses me to hear that 77,000 people voted. A viewer asks why Adam didn’t expose Malia sooner. Because he still thought he had a chance.
Malia becoming lead deckhand is discussed next, and we see clips. A viewer asks if Captain Sandy would have still backed Wes’s decision, and she says she would. If she would have known Bobby wanted to be a captain, she would have had him on the bridge more, but she thought Malia showed more interest and believes Wes is a professional. Max is asked how he feels. He says she’s good at what she does, but Malia did spend more time with Wes. Someone asks why Bobby is such a man-baby and always whining. He whines that he doesn’t understand why people think he’s whining. Malia comes to his defense, and everyone is proud of Bobby, who’s driving boats now. All of a sudden, I see a scene in my head from The King and I where the child king says he likes boats.
We cover Hannah’s laziness. Lauren says Hannah and Bugs have different management styles. They’re both good at what they do, but do it differently. Bugs says she doesn’t think she’s better than anyone, and Lauren is called out for playing both sides. She admits she did because she’s a people-pleaser, and respects the hierarchy. Adam is asked who he’d rather work with, and he says the chef usually butts heads with the chief strew so it wouldn’t matter who it was. A viewer asks if Lauren did anything except laundry, and we all laugh. Someone points out that Bugs seemed petty, and she makes some excuse about just being informative. Hannah says Bugs did whatever she was asked, even though there was some attitude, but that’s par for the course. They’re exhausted, stressed, and have a lot of pressure on them.
Andy claims he isn’t trying to pick a scab, BUT Adam’s eyes are misty, and blah-blah-blah, Andy feels like he’s more hurt than he’s letting on. Adam says that Wes and Malia kill it as a couple, and he’s not going to change that. At some point you grow up and wish them well. Andy asks if Adam still loves her, and Adam says sorry to disappoint you, Andy, but no. Really he just says no, but I’m sure he was thinking that. Andy takes a poll and most of the crew is single. Captain Sandy is asked who she’d like to work with again, and she says she loves them all. She says it was a pleasure to work with them, but team work makes the dream work, and don’t lie to your captain. Captain Lee has sayings too, but they usually involve body parts. Andy asks about regrets. Hannah says she would have waited to exchange texts with Jason until they were off the boat. She also would have given the captain more leeway for an adjustment period. Bugs would have come to Hannah sooner, and Max would have spent more time at the bridge. Malia says that she would have made her decision sooner, and Adam wonders why he kept the secret so long. Lauren has no regrets, except her people pleasing, and that’s who she is. Bobby also has no regrets, but learned what not to do.
Andy thanks everyone and the season is officially over.
