You know what tonight is: SUMMER HOUSE NIGHT! Our crazy gang is still at the vineyard. Catch up here now. Danielle Olivera is pissed that Jordan Verroi is still talking negatively about her. The other girls rally around her and support her. The whole gang sits down at a gorgeous table smack dab in the middle of the vineyard. Lindsay Hubbard wants Danielle and Jordan to talk now. At the beautiful table. Lindsay is shit stirring like a pro! Jordan is doubling down on the making out with three girls lie. Carl 3.0, uniquely skilled at drama management, intervenes. He advises Jordan to own the situation and move on. Lindsay and Danielle get up and the leave the table when Jordan does not heed Carl’s sage advice. Paige DeSorbo and Carl Radke make out in the vineyard.
Later that evening they head home to host a World Cup party. Hannah Berner returns from her grandfather’s 90th birthday party. Jordan whines to her about how he is so targeted. No one is buying your douche-baginess Jordan, and you do not know how to cope with that. Just STFU Jordan. Amanda Batula is being the only adult in the Summer House. More people came to the party then expected, so she wants to order more food. Seems reasonable and kind. Kyle Cooke cannot fathom why Amanda is adulting this way. This is going to go south super fast for them.
Cry Me A River
Carl, in an admittedly cute way, asks Paige to confirm that they have a connection. She does. Paige gives Hannah the details on what happened at the vineyard. Jordan is drunk and depressed. He hates that the Summer House gang are not buying what he is selling. Paige and Hannah try to make Jordan feel better. Hannah urges Jordan to just be honest and not to lie to gain acceptance. Paige will be devastated if she ever reads this, but my girl crush has changed. Hannah has won my heart. She is down to earth, funny, kind and empathetic. I love her.
Drunk Kyle and Amanda argue while Amanda helps him with his lederhosen. Kyle is so drunk that he cannot even get dressed. The crux of their issue comes from Kyle cheating on her, which should not be discussed whilst he is drunk.
The argument then comes to a head when Kyle Cooke screams that he is sorry for cheating on her. Amanda leaves the room. The gang and their guests play beer pong. Paige takes a Facetime call from her dad. She tells us that her parents are madly in love, so the bar is set high for her love life. Carl wanders out and talks briefly to her dad. Carl always meets the parents too soon.
Kyle and Lindsay have a heart to heart. He confesses to having a lot of guilt for cheating on Amanda, then not telling her for over a year. Lindsay advises Kyle to give Amanda time to recover from the betrayal. Paige and Amanda talk as well. Amanda is afraid she will not be able to move past Carl cheating on her. Paige tells Amanda to listen to her heart and take her time healing. Amanda appreciates Paige’s friendship.
Later, everyone goes out on the town except for Amanda, Kyle and Jordan. After a solid night of partying they come staggering home. Carl and Paige go make out in the pantry closet. Carl likes Paige a lot. He is waiting patiently at first base, hoping to slide into home at some point. I know I might catch hell for this but I am really liking Carl this season. Paige and Hannah are concerned about Amanda. Hannah feels that Amanda is losing herself being with Kyle. Amanda is too busy taking care of Kyle to take care of herself. Of course Hannah is right. I am not just saying that because I am smitten with her, I promise.
Jordan speaks to Lindsay to “take the blame” for mentioning Everett, thus starting an argument with her. He does not mean a word he says. Jordan needs acting lessons because not even Lindsay is buying his faux remorse. He is such a douchebag! Hannah play tennis with Jordan while Carl makes breakfast for Paige. They make plans for an official date. Hannah does not think Carl and Paige will end well. She is so smart. Sigh.
Kyle Cooke and Amanda go to lunch to discuss their argument the prior night.
Kyle wants Amanda to be assured that he is committed, but she is not. She is resentful and hurt by his cheating. Amanda makes it clear that if Kyle does not adhere to making good decisions then she will leave. I can see an impressive new confidence with her in this conversation. I like it.
Next week on Summer House: Lindsay meets a man at a party. Amanda finds another man hot at that party which makes Kyle jealous. Lindsay makes a super bitchy comment about Hannah looking feminine. Carl is falling for Paige. Paige is not falling yet.
