We’re back for essentially a part two of the last episode which I recapped at length here. Tonight’s recap will be much shorter. Treach’s dad was still being a jerk when Dr. Jenn spent a few more minutes with him. She ditches him to go find Treach. Dr. Jenn comforts Treach who is really devastated. His dad is having a huge breakdown in the green room, a place they do not usually film so this seems really real. Dr. Jenn goes to get Treach who doesn’t want to go see him, but Cicely goes with. His dad spills his guts. He is crying so hard, telling Treach he is sorry and he loves him. He knows he messed up and he’s sorry. Treach walks over and pulls his father up off the couch and they embrace and Treach’s dad sobs like a young widow over her husband’s casket. The sounds he makes are heartbreaking. The entire thing is heartbreaking. He’s begging for forgiveness. Sobbing. He says he will do anything. More begging. Treach says, “You just did it.” Oh dear God #allergies. Treach wipes his father’s eyes and says he is glad he came. #DeepBreaths
Deena and Chris finally argue about something. Deena doesn’t rub Chris long enough. He wanted 45 minutes and she only gave him 30 minutes. Seriously. That is the issue.
It’s time for group. The experience is almost over so Dr. Jenn wants each of them to tell their partner what exactly they need to go to the next level. Jenna is first. She says that for the first time in her life, she feels like most of her needs are being met. She is concerned that Mike might try to change her. Mike says he needs to be heard and not interrupted. Dick says he doesn’t know how to answer the question because they are trying to remain friends after the breakup. Dick says he just needs to keep her in his life because she is one of the only people he can open up to. There relationship is over but he doesn’t want to lose all of her. Stephanie’s response is not shown. She was never there as a girlfriend but as an ex and is in another relationship so this whole thing has been uncomfortable for her to say the least.
Deena says that what she needs is for him to tell her what he needs because he spends so much of his time doing what she needs. AKA, he’s Gregg Leakes Jr. carrying around his balls in her purse for her. Chris is worried about the future. Chris needs to get his own identity. He doesn’t know who he is. Chris leaves group angry. Chris feels inadequate after group so he gets angry and withdrawn.
Later, Deena and Chris talk in bed. Deena asks if Chris is okay. He says he feels like he has heard this all before. Deena points out that she tells him that everyday, so does his mother and the rest of the family. Perhaps now that people who have only known him for a couple of weeks are telling him the same thing, he will take it in. Chris seems to be lacking in ambition. He keeps saying if it were easy he would do it. Why does it have to be easy?
Dick and Juan Pablo both talk to Chris. Chris doesn’t know what type of job he wants. They guys are not very good at mentoring the kid. But it’s hard to mentor someone with no direction whatsoever. But somehow, I think Chris realizes he is not ready to marry Deena. He needs to get his own act together first.
Dick talks to Chris about Stephanie. The breakup was not really Dick’s idea. He’s still very attached to her. Dr. Mike takes Dick to meet a guy named Jake who has tons of tats just like Dick. I wonder if Dick has ever considered he could have gotten it from a dirty tattoo needle? Nah, he probably knows how he got it. Anyway, Jake tells him he got HIV in 1983 from one night of drug use shooting up coke. Basically, Jake tells Dick he will be able to get laid again.
Now, for Jenna’s closure about her mother. Dr. Jenn found her mother’s grave and wants to go with her to the gravesite. They will go there next week. Also, Treach goes off on Cicely about something and she says the relationship is over.
