We begin with Emile and Rocky being called off the mast where they were dodging the whirling radar arms taking selfies. This does not bode well for their futures with Captain Lee. Rocky doesn’t seem to get what an idiot she is. Emile says he was tempted into stupidity by Rocky.
Shortly after the crew got on board for the season, Connie’s dad passed away. She has been texting with her brother during the ordeal. Connie was estranged from her father but I imagine there is probably some tough feelings going on. She has not told anyone (except the cameraman) what is going on.
Oh we have the same guests. That almost never happens. They are apparently good enough for two episodes. The foam party loving man’s request for the day is a paella party on the beach. Kate leaves Rocky on the beach to deal with the couple. Everyone is pissed at Rocky for her mast top selfies. As the try to start cooking on the beach, a sudden storm rolls in. The primary gets drunk and starts hitting on Rocky. Drunk Steve is having a great time. He and his wife later try to proposition Eddie.
The deck crew doesn’t seem to be gelling very well. Leon and Kate can’t stand each other. They are sharing quarters and it is very awkward. Kate wants to switch out with Eddie. I don’t blame her for that.
Leon makes pasta for the Mexican party. It doesn’t matter. Steve loves everything Leon makes. Basically, Steve loves everything. This irritates the resting bitch faced one.
Rocky has quite the crush on Eddie. This will be important later.
Connie’s brother wants her to come home for the funeral. She’s thinking of maybe having him come down for a day instead.
On the last day, they dress Don up like “Aerosmith.” As much as they talked about them, I was sort of expecting a Steven Tyler visit.
It’s never an episode of Below Deck with a mishap getting the boat moored under tight conditions. Don seems to be the weak link when it comes knowing the ropes. Somehow they escape any damage, but Captain Lee is not happy. Captain Lee reams out all the deckhands in his quiet but terrifying way. Don has an attitude problem. Captain Lee loves Connie.
Steve was so very grateful for the whole cruise. He had the time of his life. I love to see people being grateful for their experiences. Captain Lee tells everyone they need to start working together as a team at the tip meeting. Everyone gets $1,100 dollars in tip money. Connie is very grateful. Kate whines that the tip was two low. I wonder how Don is going to like having Kate for a roommate.
Everyone goes out for some island drinking to celebrate the first charter being over. Rocky gets wasted. She starts moving in on Emile which pisses off Connie. Back at the boat, Rocky tries to seduce Emile and he remembers Captain Lee telling him not to let her get him in any more trouble so he bails and goes to bed leaving her in the hot tub.
The next day, Kate tries to school Rocky on what she needs to know to be a stew. Rocky is very resentful of Kate. Both Rocky and Don have issues with their bosses. Basically neither one wants to take orders and both feel they are too good for their position. Rocky has a breakdown. She wants to quit.
Next Week: The Penis blanket guy returns. Don gets in hot water. And Leon and Kate continue to butt heads. If you missed #PenisGate2014 click here.
