It’s time for another episode of Shahs of Sunset. Reza has invited the gang to New York for Rosh Hashannah. What could possibly go wrong with this plan? Meanwhile Asa is on a diamond shopping trip looking for a very special large diamond to make her water with. It’s yet another scene where she tells a professional business person this and they try to keep a straight face. The jeweler’s response was. “Oh yeah. Interesting.” Once in the back room to view the loose stones, our jeweler has to maintain his composure while Asa uses her love energy to select the perfect stone. Bless his heart. I imagine there were no dramatic sound effects in the room at the time so imagine this happening in relative silence. It reminds me of when you suddenly needed to crack up in the middle of church as a kid.
Now for the slowest walk ever with MJ and GG and some their dogs. GG is annoyed because MJ called her from the trip she was kicked off of to complain about the trip she got kicked off of. MJ is now confronting GG about her behavior. What is the point of this scene? MJ is now blaming GG for her losing her “friends” Asa and Reza.
Asa apparently buys a diamond (though we didn’t see that part) and heads over to the bottling plant with her magic carpet.
Aladdin Asa conducts a um love ceremony on her magic carpet before giving the water tank a big ole hug. And just like that, diamond water is born.
Reza, MJ, Mike and Asa arrive in NYC for the holiday and they become lost looking for the Louis Vuitton store. At least we learn the Farsi word for clusterfuck. Later Reza has lunch with his father. It’s a cryfest. What is the Farsi word for that? Basically if you read through all the subtitles and tears, the storyline is about Reza making up with his Grandmother the next day at dinner. This is the grandmother he has called every name in the world in the previous season, but now, the season two storyline seems to be for Reza to do an about-face on every relationship he has ever had. Crew arrives with two huge floral arrangements and half a dozen huge bakery boxes. Reza goes into the kitchen and grandma greets him quite kindly. She only speaks Farsi so we are forced to believe that this year she is nice and last year she was awful. Reza wonders if they switched grandmas between episodes, um, I mean visits. The food looks amazing. MJ is behaving very well. Where is all of this hanging all over Reza’s grandmother stuff that he was bitching about on Jay Behar?
Sorry this recap is so dry. I am distracted by other things this weekend and frankly, these shows tonight just didn’t hold my attention. On the plus side, there was only one Lilly scene which was not important enough to recap.
