So glad y’all came back to read this Married To Medicine recap. I am still not well (PLEASE spam me on my twitter with any and all lower back remedies). But I will not let my beloved TT (or any of you!) down so here we go! We begin with the ladies grilling their men about their strip club escapades. (TT, feel free to purple pen the shit out of this with Atlanta strip club anecdotes that you have…heard. Yes, we shall go with “heard” lol). Most are unbothered, except for our Heavenly. Though somehow she has managed to swallow her rage and replace it with thinly veiled disgust.
The gang gets in a van to do what they do best: mission trips. They have set up a free clinic to help those who otherwise cannot see a doctor. Contesssa says that this is where she is most fulfilled. Jackie and Eugene give sex education talks. Well, Jackie gives a scared straight sex ed talk, complete with one-eyed monster references. The girls she spoke to seemed unsure but not scared, so we’ll call it a success. This is the best part of their couple’s trips in my opinion. I love to see them shine. You really see how great they are at being doctors, also how much they truly care about people.
After they get back to the resort, the couples (and Quad) head to the beach for yet another couples exercise. Well actually, this looks fun. The first one they do with their spouses. They attach a belt/bucket apparatus to the women who shake ping pong balls out by twerking and jumping around.
David had no interest in the game because he couldn’t take his eyes off of his wife and her twerking abilities. The next one was “wife swap” so all the ladies had to change partners, per who Simone picks. Heavenly ended up with Cecil (messy Simone with their history of the twitter feud). Simone pairs Mariah and Damon because of the whole accusing Damon of cheating. Mariah and Damon win. Everyone had fun with zero drama. I’m sure Simone was pleased.
That night they go to dinner to celebrate “dia de los muertos” or “the day of the dead”. Everyone, sans Damon and Cecil, have their faces painted to celebrate. They discuss a negative they want to leave behind with bringing home one positive. Jackie wants to leave fake friendships behind. Simone is positive that Buffie should stay far from NuJackie. Am I the only one confused by Jackie’s anger toward Buffie?
Home Isn’t Always Where The Heart Is
Back at home, Quad’s divorce is nearly finalized. She signs the papers which leaves only tax stuff and Dr. G’s signature to be had. We get a sad montage of how their marriage became toxic and imploded. Very sad. Jackie is starting to dip back into old working habits, leaving Curtis to wonder if she really has changed.
Scott and Contessa have a counseling appointment. As y’all know,I have team Contessa for a while. This part right here is where that may finally end.. During the session, she accuses Scott of turning their kids against her. Now, do I think Scott has been perfect? No. Do I think in his frustration he said things regarding Contessa that may not have been kind? Yes. But do I think he actively sought to turn his kids against their mother? HELL NO! These kids are not dumb. They see their mother gone most of the time. OF COURSE they will have resentment! Resentment they will form all on their own. Scott doesn’t need to force that on them. That was some bullshit.
Next week on our Married To Medicine recap: Buffie has a spa day where she will most likely have words with Jackie. More counseling with Scott and Contessa. Thank you all for reading! See you in the comments. Hopefully also on Twitter where you can spam me with back pain relief! Click the link in my byline with any tips!
