Every Week I say I am going to set the DVR to record more time, and I never remember to do it. When I record the second show the times are off by a couple of minutes so I am going to miss the follow-up to this again and will have to Google what happened. Le sigh.
They keep saying that every episode of this season has a double reveal, but that has not been the case. The good news is the boys are in a hotel room so we are finally out of L.A.
Quentin writes in from Detroit about his mom who he thinks is being catfished. Ah! It is a double catfish this week. His mom is using a fake profile with her sister’s photo to talk to Jose. They have been talking for two years, but he stood her up when she was supposed to meet him. Yadda yadda yadda we know the situation.
At Mandy’s house the walls have either been freshly painted LA Gray or digitally edited to this season’s dreary shade. I miss the pumpkin colored walls season. That was festive. The weird thing is they had to digitally edit a painting in the room. Why didn’t they just take it out during staging? The new couch is sort of a weird red suede. Somehow, there are living fish in the filthy fish tank.
Mandy looks a lot like her sister so it is odd that she would use her photo. They are asking about her ex a lot for no reason, so he is the likeliest catfish at this point. They broke up because he was sleeping with her sister. That would do it. That is also why she made the fake account. She was pretending to be her sister to catch them cheating. She would talk to him as if she were the sister.
She doesn’t have a phone number for him because they only talk on Facebook Messenger. I now think it is the sister.
Now we have come to the point in the story where we waste time talking to Laura, who is apparently from Michigan. Sigh.
They guys go to meet one of Jose’s Facebook friends, Rachel. She is not at her house where she said she would be. So the guys go to a coffee shop to meet with Mandy again. Then Rachel calls and says she will come to the coffee house. Rachel actually looks like her profile photo! Rachel says that she is friends with Jose and that is his real photo, and he has mentioned Mandy to her before. So what is the problem? Oh…. now she is saying that he has moved to Tennessee and that she should just move on from him. Ah, so she is a liar who is lying out of her lie hole. She gives them Jose’s phone number. The lying girl leaves and they call the number. It goes to a girl’s voice mail. Then they get a text back asking who is calling and claiming they at work and can’t pick up the phone. So they text back they are here with Mandy. The person texts back that he is in Tennessee and is not coming back. Please tell Mandy I’m sorry and I should have told her.
Nev uses Grabify to get the IP of the person texting and it shows up a nearby Michigan city, not Tennessee.
The next day they have a text to meet “Jose” at the same house where Rachel was supposed to live. So back they go to the same house. “Jose” doesn’t want them to bring Mandy. So they go without her. It a girl named Chasity. She was on a previous episode that apparently I didn’t recap and don’t remember. She was Catfishing a guy. This is the stupidest reveal ever. It doesn’t even make sense. She always says it is something about keeping track of her babies fathers and she at first thought the profile was the sisters. Apparently the sister was sleeping with one of her sperm donors. Or something. This is the most ridiculous episode ever.
The walls are baby blue at Chasity’s house. That’s a change. She has the same couch that Mandy got only in brown. There is an M & K wall hanging that makes no sense because Chasity’s name doesn’t start with M or K.
Chasity says that there is a family rift and Mandy’s side of the family is sort of cut off from the rest of the family. So they take Chasity to see Mandy.
Wait whose house is this? This is not the house that we saw Mandy and Quentin in earlier. This one has a bunch of black leather couches that look out of place with the rest of the room. This room seems to accentuate the numerous poor tattoo choices that Mandy has made. All over her hands. there is one that is sort of on her neck and sort of on her chest that has big red lips and a blurred out name.. It’s all very wrong.
Chasity and Mandy talk alone and Mandy realizes along with the rest of us that Chasity is a sociopath. Mandy doesn’t buy Chasity’s apology and she wants nothing to do with her. And that is where the DVD shuts off. We are literally recasting former catfishes now. This is what it has come to.
