We pick back up this week with Nico and a very drunk EJ having a pissing contest on the deck. Briana rounds up Baker to let her know things could come to blows. Nico tells EJ to go to bed. Nico says if he is not bosun in the morning, he going to walk. Brianna immediately tries to start to lead Nico toward an apology but he is not ready.
I love that they showed Captain Lee struggling to open a package of cereal. I can’t open a goddamn thing in my kitchen anymore. I suspect they are making the packages harder to open. 🙂
In the sober light of day, everyone is filled with anxiety and regret. Except for Jen who is still on the pity train. Nico has no regrets it seems when it comes to yelling at EJ last night. EJ seems lets into stirring the pot now that he is sober. I imagine Kate has run to Captain Lee before the first Cheerio hit his belly.
There is some sort of docking issue with regard to space for the boat which somehow means that the crew gets to spend the afternoon in St. Barths. It was not clear how that all worked, but I suppose it was in the script that the crew needed to work out their numerous personal dramas. Kate and Jen go shopping and stock up on costumes for dinner parties. All of the deck hands except for Nico go to lunch together while Brianna and Nico go on a beach date.
Jen buys Brianna an anklet as a small make-up gift for overreacting to Brianna calling her a whiner the night before. I thought that was quite mature of Jen. Brianna apologized as well. So there is peace in the interior once again. Nico apologizes for being a dick. This little makeup sesh is not as genuine as the girls was. Nico should have bought EJ an anklet, or a personality or something in St Barths.
The extra time in St. Barths means that when they finally got docking space at the other port, they had to do it at night. Captain Lee seems to think this is a risky situation with this green crew. They did an outstanding job and win high praise from Captain Lee. He did suggest to us in a talking head that perhaps he should just blindfold them and make them do everything in the dark. Nico blew off his girlfriend when she texted him. Matt has been bombarding his ex with texts for 24 hours. She’s not answering.
The new charter guests include the woman who The Blindside was about. I think Sandra Bullock played her in the movie. They seem easy. They want an award show themed party the first night. WTF? And a tailgating theme party on the beach. Again, why do people fly miles and miles away to recreate crap they do back home? There is one vegetarian. Matt seems over-confident.
There is a lot of whoohooing before the guest even get on board. Looks like entitled rich southern white people. The brought half of Dixie in their luggage, The female primary has already referred to the staff as “the little people” and asks Captain Lee what they do.
Matt abandoned dinner service to duck off and text his ex again. She finally responded. I think he was crying. Things went well at dinner until the Bananas Foster Fiasco.
The tailgating beach party, things went well except for Jen’s oddballs cheerleading and Baker’s step rountine. Oddly, the guests seemed to like it. Kate tells Matt he need to get his head back in the game and pull of a showstopping dinner.
Kate is pissed that Jen’s cheerleader show happened out of uniform. So she is punishing her at dinner with a costume of her choosing. Of course we saw Jen and Kate shopping for the costumes so…say it with me, STORYLINE. Kate humiliates Jen by dressing her up in obnoxious clothes and a life vest and calling her the Valor mascot. It was beneath the dignity of the boat, and she did when Captain Lee was at dinner. Not smart. However, Kate could barbecue Jen over spit like a malnourished suckling pig and Captain Lee wouldn’t care. Kate leaves Jen to do the overnight set ups and Jen is all whiny and wanting to quit again.
Dinner went really well, mostly because Bruno has a hidden talent and it’s pastry chef.
Next week: Jen has another meltdown. Nico crosses the line with Briana.
