Tonight is the season finale, and I get a strange feeling that it might be Asa’s last season. She clearly has grown weary of suffering these fools gladly. I hope she gets herself out of the gutter and takes that baby and spends her time raising him and running her successful businesses. She’s the only one of this bunch that had the sense to set herself up with business plans to keep multiple revenue streams flowing after this show ends. There will be a season seven, though. So maybe the rest of these clowns need to plan for their future.
The episode starts off with Reza and GG meeting with Kevin Lee about the decor for the Winter Ball. And of course they gossip. This time Golnesa tells Reza that Jessica has emailed Mike’s mom trying to get back in her good graces and possibly back with Mike. I do not believe for one hot second that Jessica ever tried to get back with Mike. I think this is all made up crap. Pretty much all of Golnesa and Reza’s conversations are made up storyline this season. Reza actually tells Golnesa to talk to Mike’s mom to convince her to let Mike take Jessica back. Why?
MJ and Tommy wear matching red flannel PJs to take Vida to see MJ’s dad in the hospital. Vida was actually well-behaved.
Apparently Reza needs to have some more time on a stage so we are going to suffer through this play that Reza wrote. When MJ was in high school, she took drama and Monica Lewinsky and Eric Menendez were in her class. The only people in the audience are the other cast members. And unfortunately, us.
I don’t understand why Adam ever married Reza. Reza is such a bitch who constantly belittles him. I can’t believe they are going to do the baby thing next season. Their storyline needs to be divorce.
I’m actually having to sit through the commercials. There really isn’t much to say about this episode.
Reza and Adam go to visit Asa who is on bed rest. Asa tells the guys that she just doesn’t want to be around the negativity anymore. She has been around this for six years and no seems to be maturing. Everyone still gets drunk and argues with each other and she has outgrown the situation. She’s about to be a mother and she is moving toward more mature things. Of course what Reza hears is that Asa has everything she wants now and has need for them anymore. I suppose that is one way of looking at it, if you have the intellect and maturity of a twelve-year-old boy.
Kevin did an excellent job with the Winter Ball, it is so beautiful. You know what else is beautiful? MJ’s apartment that has been totally designed from top to bottom. I love the wall with all of the Arabic (Farsi) writing. At MJ’s place, Reza and Adam have one of those whisper fights couples have when they are in public or on camera at a time when they are not getting along. Reza is dismissive of Adam, while claiming that Adam is dismissive. Adam is hurt that Reza threatens not to have a baby with him, or to divorce him during arguments. Adam is crying. In his talking head, Reza says he is sick and tired of Adam making him out to be the bad guy.
We finally get to the party and everyone is there, even Shalom. Golnesa is blinding everyone at the party with her right. There is fake snow falling out of the sky. Mike’s mom arrives and GG will be accosting her to tell her to accept Jessica. Things start off okay but then Mike gets his cue to enter the scene and break things up. Again, this is the most ridiculous script ever that someone must have insisted on to do damage control to Mike’s shattered reputation. It’s just making it worse. Jessica converted to Judaism, spenty hours and hours with Mike’s mother learning to cook Iranian food, and put up with Mike’s crap. During all of that time Mike was cheating on her with all sorts of people. What the hell does Jessica have to apologize for? It seems the mom is pissed that Jessica left Mike so easily. Mike is pissed that Golnesa talked to his mom. Really pissed. Golnesa says it is all Reza’s fault that she talked to Mike’s mom. Apparently, Mike didn’t know about the email. Probably because it didn’t exist.
Reza is sweating like a whore in church at this event. When he went to visit Asa she said that she opened a window for him so he would not get all sweaty. Water is literally rolling off of him. Adam finally tells Reza that the callous way that Reza cancelled the wedding is something he has not gotten past and every time he talks about not having a baby with him, or says he might have married the wrong person, or talks about not wanting to be with him all of those hurtful feelings come up.
Reza actually gives him a decent apology. The show ends with news of Golnesa’s marriage, and divorce. Or annulment as Reza called it. Only they are back together now. At least long enough for GG to wear the ring at the reunion…
