Who is ready for another Shahs of Sunset recap? It already seems to me that this is going to be another blame everything on MJ season and gang up on her. Could they not just cut the woman who nearly died giving birth a break? No, no they cannot. And, Reza Farahan is the biggest asshole on the planet.
Reza and the gang are going on a mud run. Reza seems to think this will bring the group together. He tries to teach Golnesa how to run. She’s not interested. She is interested in throwing MJ under the bus. And, she is tossing Destiney and Ali under with her. But she starts off with MJ. Golensa says that Ali told her that when he complained to MJ about Adam she replied, “OMG, that is borderline sexual harassment.” This is true.
Ordinarily, I would not even recap this scene where Destiny gets a flat tire. Also, I don’t know whether I should be impressed by her old vintage car, or make fun of her old broke down car. I don’t know anything about cars. As long as it gets me from here to there, I am good. However, Destiney’s reaction to the pregnant possum is so unexpected I just have to discuss it. I would have run like the wind. But not Destiney. She wants to be some sort of doula for a pregnant possum. I can’t! And production doesn’t even give her a heads up! Then a cute guy comes to rescue the possum.
The question about Destiney’s car is answered in a later scene where she goes to visit her car, Poison, at the mechanics. Apparently, it is a classic. Good to know.
I Can Do So Much Better Than You
Speaking of things that I shouldn’t bother to mention. We get another scene about Nema and his fake heterosexual relationships. Oh she is the fake relationship from Nema’s first season. At least they didn’t have to recast. I’m just playing along with this because I already pulled a photo.
Golnesa and her friend Yasmin go to some weird kind of herbal store. Not for that kind of herb. She wants something for fertility. I thought she took care of that last week by hunting for fucking fish under a full moon? Apparently that did not work, so we much try something else. She drinks some weird shit. We learn way to much about the thickness of her vagina. She tells us she had multiple abortions, or morning after pills or both during her misspent youth.
And now in her misspent adulthood, she’s struggling to get pregnant. Golnesa acts like her stopping pot after the implant is no big deal. I don’t believe her. Later we find out she is good to go for the egg implant.
Good Luck, And Don’t Fuck It Up!
The property that Mike is supposed to be developing has a unit with lots of furniture and crap left behind. He doesn’t even know how to handle this. I don’t believe that the tenets are even out. He could sell all of that stuff in a few hours on a Saturday. A dealer would come in and take it all and pay him. His dad shows up to show him plans for the electrical. Are we supposed to believe Mike knows how to read this? Reza really did have to oversee the renovation of Mike’s own house!
Mike’s dad, who is an electrical contractor with over 40 years of experience tries to caution him to get the right contractor. Mike tells us that he and his father are so similar that they butt heads. I am not seeing that. His father seems like a smarter, successful guy. Hopefully, Mike will listen to his dad.
Golnesa is too high to be of any help making the the team hoodrat t-shirts. Sara comes over but she is so terrified of dogs she has to be sure the dog is locked up. Oh I think Sara is the R Kelly girl. Golnesa and Reza think MJ is not reaching to him for some nefarious reason. How many times do I have to type that she nearly died and just brought home a baby! Did either of them go to check on her or take a gift? Did they call to see if she needs them to bring anything? Nope. MJ says that phone call was their last conversation if I recall correctly.
Destiney sent a kumquat tree of apology to Reza and Adam. Adam reads the card and points out she didn’t even apologize. Reza is very quick to write off his childhood friend, and his best friend of 30 years. I don’t have the time or the patience to list all the things Reza has done to MJ. It would take several days of typing. I guess it was Reza who sent her the nasty email saying he doesn’t trust her. But he says he is willing to coexist if she wants to come to the mud run. Destiney cries because Reza is the only person who truly has been there for her. She needs better friends.
When You Lay Down With Pigs…
Mike is the first one to drop out of the mud run. He is going but his back is hurting, Not enough to keep him from making inappropriate remarks to Adam about his alleged dalliances with other men. Then Nema arrives with his “friend” Bobby. It’s about time we meet Nema’s “friend.” Then Sara arrives and then Anita shows up. I think Anita is a girl I really liked in a very early season. If so, she is too good for this show.
Destiney arrives late and sad. While she tries to make up with Reza, the others get in the van. Sara complains about Destiney and her drama and tells Reza to hit her. I don’t even like Destiney and I hate Sara more already. Destiney tries to put all the blame on MJ. Reza says that means MJ set Destiney up. Boy, MJ was quite the multitasker from ICU. They hug it out and agree that it is all MJ’s fault.
You Get Up With Mud
Golnesa and GG don’t last ten feet until come up with a plan to just wait for everyone to run back by and they will fall back in with the group. The plan to cheat and pretend like they won the whole thing. Basically, they do nothing. This is a pretty serious obstacle course.
Of course Mike brings Jenga just to be a dick.
Next week, WE FINALLY GET MJ, TOMMY AND THE BABY. I wish they would give them the whole episode. Frankly, I wish they had the whole season. Golnesa gets an ultrasound. Spoiler Alert! Unfortunately, things don’t work out this time. Reza and Adam go to Vegas for his hair care line.
