We’re back on the boat for another episode of Below Deck where the fireworks continue between Eddie and Rocky. The charter this week is a man named Alan who is celebrating his 50th birthday with his girlfriend, his two sons and another couple. He has very specific request for his birthday cake a chocolate lave birthday cake with vanilla bean ice cream and caramel. Since he wants a white party, Kate suggests a while chocolate lava cake. I forsee disaster already. They also want to swim with sharks. Oh and the guys are all hot, so the stews are excited.
Rocky is a lot happier once she got laid. She is doing a much better job with her steward duties.
Clearly, the storyline is going to be around the birthday cake. The 50 year old supposedly has never had a birthday cake. We are eight minutes in and we have discussed the birthday cake three times. Clearly, the script says for Leon to screw up the cake. Meanwhile, the guests are once again raving about Leon’s food. The girlfriend calls it “orgasmic.” It looks like a basic salad with grilled tuna. I saw Leon grilling quartered lemons and limes.
Kate talks to Leon about the birthday cake again. Emile talks to Leon about masturbating. They are both for it. Then it is time for Leon’s nap. Eddie talks to Amy about his girlfriend back home. He says him breaking up with her while on charter is not the right thing to do. But I could have sworn he already did that. And he seems to have moved on for a post breakup dalliance with Rocky.
The guests come back hungry from their lobster/conch dive and want quesadillas before dinner. Leon is still napping and Rocky gets directions from him and says she’ll be glad to do it. She licks the cheese off her fingers as she prepares them. Eww. Captain Lee is pissed at Leon for sleeping.
Emile is team Leon and team Rocky. He says that Kate is the one infecting the boat with negativity. And here we thought Emile was dumb. Later, Leon tells Rocky that he is going to let Kate have it. Again, the guests are RAVING about the food. Kate says that basically he should never cook the same meal twice. That’s just ridiculous. Different guests can all have beef cheeks and love them.
One of the guests is seriously hitting on Rocky. And Amy is not as nice to Rocky as you would expect based on last season. Amy ducks out to Skype with her brother Kelley. At midnight, Rocky and Eddie hook up again in the laundry room.
The next morning, Kate wakes up to a mess because Rocky didn’t finish her duties the night before. Yet, she has time to interrogate and antagonize Leon. Captain Lee remains enchanted by Kate. Again, the guests rave about breakfast.
Amy goes to tell Rocky that basically she is not doing a good job. Rocky is frustrated that Kate and Amy talk down to her. Rocky gets super frustrated and storms off. Leon tries to talk Rocky off the ledge.
Leon is going to serve rabbit even though the girlfriend tells a fake story about her parents serving her pet rabbit for dinner. Then he goes to bed.
Kate burnt a bag of popcorn in the microwave. And managed to catch a pizza on fire in the oven.
Next week: Leon says that Kate was responsible for both fires (and she was) but he also said she was drinking. He was asleep so I don’t know how he would know that. I think the Captain will somehow blame Leon or Rocky.
