I have taken the reins in getting us through these last few episodes of Jax and Brittany. This is because The Lady C just can’t watch another frame of it. It is late this week because I had a lot going on last night and made some poor choice with regard to a personal celebration, so I am having a rough time getting to work today. Some days I need a boss or a “sick day” and this is one of them. But I like this stupid show and by God, I’m gonna get off my ass…errr sit on my ass and recap it! Because I’m a boss. Or sumpthin’.
With only three days left in their old Kentucky home, it’s time for fight. Rumors swirled that Jax and Brittany had broken up after filming this spinoff. And those rumors are resurfacing. Never fear. No matter what we are about to see. I don’t think these two will ever break up as long as there are cameras willing to film them.
It seems that our boy Jax is dealing with the ramifications of his poor choices the previous night on this episode. See? It’s a very relatable show for me. Even spellcheck is fucking with me. Apparently the word “relatable” is not in the WordPress dictionary. This is fucking with my cloudy brain. Anyway, Jax got wasted and started calling people white trash and screamed at Brittany and showed his ass at the bar. All Brittany wanted was an apology but instead, Jax took off in the pickup truck and went into town. Clearly he is still drunk and the shame and remorse part has not hit him yet. He apparently threw it in Brittany’s face that he gave her family $12,000. Yikes. He also started in on the usual cut downs of Brittany, he pays for everything, including her boobs. Brittany says he does this every time they have a major fight.
She relates all of this to her sister and Jax returns from town with a coffee, but none for anyone else. Jax says that he did apologize to Brittany this morning. She agrees but says he took it back and screamed at her some more. I feel like Brittany took the wrong approach with Jax. She should have iced him out and ignored him and left him pleading for her forgiveness instead of demanding it the minute he opened his eyes. That morning Brittany called Jax an old man who should know better. Jax shot back with, “You don’t mind taking money from this old man, do you?” Um, Brittany has TWO
Trump Bravo checks and does appearances. She’s not making Hooters tips anymore Jax.
If this conversation is real, and not mutually agreed upon storyline, then this is a serious issue. Jax tells us in a talking head that Brittany worked to jobs to support her boyfriend and now she works two days a week waiting tables with him. Brittany says she’s been taking four or five shifts a week. I believe her. I read things all over the place about people going to SUR and Brit was their waitress. Two shifts are required during filming when the show airs at least for some, and Brittany actually works there. Brittany says he may make more money but she actually works harder. Things get even uglier and Brittany cries and runs to Mamaw’s house, it seems to get off camera.
Mamaw goes to talk to Jax. Jax whines about this in his talking head, but in the scene it is clear he respects Mamaw and he listens to her. She doesn’t say anything negative to Jax at all. She just tell him to be honest and let Brittany know he doesn’t remember the bad things he did the night before. She also says it takes women longer than men to forgive. I’m not sure that is true. What do you think?
Then Mamaw let’s Jax know that he and Brittany have chores to get done and chores wait for no hungover man. Mamaw tells Brittany that she needs to drop it and move on with the tasks of the day and talk about it when they have both cooled down. I love Mamaw, and miss my own Mamaw.
Britanny and Jax are off feeding the chickens. Britanny belated enacts my cold shoulder plan. I think it is too late for that move now, Brit. In an unexpected scene, Jax and Mamaw have lunch, just the two of them. I love Winchester, Kentucky and could totally live there. It’s not my first choice, but it is officially on the list. Especially if I could live with Mamaw. Okay maybe for six months. She would not let me drink. The food looks incredible. Mamaw asks if when this is over if Brittany would know about the ring. Jax goes into the same stupid “Britanny has lost her spark and is stress eating.” Mamaw says that Jax has gained weight since the last time she saw him. See why I love Mamaw? Then she says Jax has her blessing.
Jax’s stupid human trick of the week is muddin’ in some ATVs. Britanny is also cast in this scene as well as some really hot gray haired guy. Hell, that is Brittany’s dad. I never noticed him being so hot until he was in his ATV attire. Sadly, just the two of them go off on the ATV’s leaving my lastest crush behind. Brittany tells Jax he needs to follow her because he doesn’t know where they are going. I’ll let you guess what Jax does.
Eventually, the two clear the air. And then there is a montage of everything they have done. Is this the final episode? I need more. At least we get to see Jax meet Bacon Bit, Mamaw’s pet baby pig. Allegedly.
It seems that Don invited Jax and Brittany to his house for a bonfire, but Jax refused to go and went to sleep in his top bunk. I do not for a moment believe these two stayed in bunk beds for two weeks, just as I don’t believe that Kenya and Phaedra stayed on cots in the campground for Phaedra’s fake charity trip to Michigan. This leaves Brittany for a cookout date with her Daddy. Don says that Jax was great for helping with the fundraiser, but he is overall not happy with Jax.
Next week is the finale: The promos make it seem like they break up. But I think they have been engaged for a while. I love this show! And all y’all suck for not liking it. Except Lady C. I love her no matter what.
