How is it Monday already? I woke up this morning thinking it was Sunday. Where did the weekend go? The best part of Monday writing the Below Deck Recap. This has certainly been an interesting season. Captain Lee is bound to jerk a knot in a few of the crew members tonight before the guest show up. There are rough waters ahead for everyone!
Captain Lee invite Kate up to the bridge for coffee. Shockingly, Captain Lee is not completely on Kate’s side either. I don’t get it. When I hate Kate everyone else loves her and now when I am on her side for a change, Captain Lee isn’t? Then at the preference sheet meeting, he gives a mild admonishment to everyone and then gets down to business. Ashton tries to get an apology out of Kate and the best she can do is “I’m sorry you feel that way..” Then Kate promotes Courtney to second stew. This probably means that Simone will be back on laundry duty.
Don’t Embarrass Yourselves And Don’t Embarrass The Boat!
Tanner continues to be a douchebag. Simone calls her mom to trash talk Kate. Chef Kevin has a broken extractor fan in the kitchen which means smoke will have no place to go.
Captain calls everyone in for a staff meeting after getting a distressing email. The resort where the got drunk the day before suffered significant damage to their DJ equipment after Ashton did a cannonball in the pool. Ashton apologizes to Captain Lee and says he will cover the damages. There was a thousand dollars in damages. Then he apologizes to Kate for his behavior at the beach club. She’s kind of a smartass about it.
There Is A Hair In My Cheese!
Finally the guests arrive. They didn’t have the best charter last season, so everyone is trying really hard to make this cruise perfect. The galley is almost 90 degrees already due to the broken extraction fan. So Kevin serves a caprese salad. One of the guests finds a hair in her cheese. So far things are going from bad to worse. There are a ton of jelly fish in the water. So the crew has to figure out how to get the critter free pool together and in the water. The dick hands are fighting Rhylee at every turn.
Kate and the stews set up the dinner area for a gorgeous Thai dinner. The guests were underwhelmed by the food but Master Pearson seemed to enjoy it. There was a beautiful female Thai dancer who was very good. The black rice pudding for dessert was not a huge hit either. But again, Master Pearson ate it and that is all that really matters.
It’s A New Day
The kids grandparents live in Thailand and they are coming to surprise the family at lunch. The kids are really excited! They were going to eat on the beach but Ashton calls it off mid trip do to the high winds and dangerous conditions. That’s just more disappointment for the guests.
Now it is a lot of work for the deck crew to quickly get all the toys out. And the kitchen is full of smoke causing the smoke alarm to go off. This charter is doomed.
Next week: Tanner is an even bigger douchebag. Ashton screams at Rhylee and at Kate. Smashton comes out at the bar and continues to berate Kate who “quits” as chief stew.
