Well. How absolutely needed is this episode and recap of Summer House? Even though it’s only been a week, it feels like a freakin’ eternity since my last recap. I’m really counting on the budding sweet romance of Luke and Hannah to get us through this especially difficult time. Let’s do this!
We pick up with the almost fight between Carl and Luke. Jordan is beaming about being in the arms of Carl, even though it was to keep him separated from Luke. Jordan whisks Carl away before a melee can happen. By ‘melee’ I mean Luke pounding Carl and his stupid face into the ground. Kyle takes Luke aside to “mediate”. Kyle is defending Carl because, gross male behavior. Luke is adamant he didn’t do anything wrong. Luke tells the guys to leave without him. He’s too pissed and doesn’t want to talk about this nonsense any further.
Being Engaged Should Be Fun!
The girls are at home in their pj’s, raiding the guy’s underwear drawers. They are dressing up like the guys which is hilarious. Paige as Carl is the best: “I lost my job 45 times. You’re hot, you’re hot, you’re hot”. Luke interrupts the girl’s night by coming home alone. He tells Lindsay and Amanda what happened. Hannah and Luke flirt more. Carl, Kyle and Jordan go out to party.
Kyle does not tell his fiancee at home that his plans changed. He wants to promote and push Loverboy on unsuspecting businesses. Amanda calls Kyle over 20 times. He doesn’t answer one call. Amanda is really upset. She’s afraid he is out cheating on her. Valid fear. Paige wants to shake her because she deserves better. The guys finally come home to a pissed off Amanda. A drunken fight between Kyle and Amanda ensues. Amanda asks Kyle if he wants to be single. He says yes. Which is his absolute truth.
Lindsay Is Activated
The next morning Kyle regrets how things escalated with Amanda, though he isn’t really sorry. Hannah talks to Paige about Amanda. Hannah thinks that Amanda feels trapped. Right on the nose Hannah! Luke interrupts to invite Hannah for a ride on the motorcycle. Paige is wary of Luke as he is hot and charming.
The rest of the gang take ubers to meet at a restaurant. Carl announces (while Lindsay is in the bathroom) that he is asking trainer Sarah to the house next weekend. Paige and Lindsay go off to talk. Paige tells Lindsay about Sarah coming to the house the next weekend. She feels super hurt. Lindsay confronts Carl. He doubles down, insisting he’s not doing anything wrong. She calls him a pussy and walks away. YES LINDSAY!
Do You Really Even Love Her, Boy?
Back at the house, Lindsay cries in the pantry to Amanda. Luke pulls Carl aside to talk. Carl says that he’s protective of Hannah so he doesn’t trust Luke. Luke insists he doesn’t want to date Sarah. They bro it out. Amanda is still pissed at Kyle. Paige wishes Amanda would just say that she’s unhappy. Kyle and Amanda talk again. Amanda asks Kyle why he would say he wants to be single. Kyle gives a brief recap of their relationship as an answer.
This is the perfect time for both of them to be honest and end it. Instead, Kyle tells Amanda that he wants her to be productive with Loverboy. Amanda works a full time job and cannot devote the time needed for Loverboy. Kyle tells her to quit her job. She is hesitant to do that because deep down she knows this isn’t healthy. I like to think she knows that this won’t last either, but who knows.
Luke And Hannah Kiss!
Luke serenades Hannah outside with his guitar. They start to make out with Jordan and Jules watching from the deck. Hannah is very impressed with Luke’s kissing skills. They all head out for a night on the town. No social distancing at this club! Hannah and Luke go to separate beds at the house. Jordan and Jules make out in the pool. Jules in confused as to why she and Jordan can’t have sex. Come to TamaraTattles.com Jules. We will happily clear it up for you.
The next morning Kyle and Carl talk. Kyle gets Carl to finally realize what a douchebag move it was to ask Sarah out in front of Lindsay. Carl asks how he and Amanda are. Kyle feels like it would be the best thing for his relationship with Amanda if she joins Loverboy full time. What world is he living in? In the city Kyle makes dinner for Amanda. He wants to talk about the wedding. He doesn’t want assigned seating. Amanda doesn’t know what she wants. Kyle gets frustrated. Same underlying issues with every conversation, every week. GET OFF THE RIDE AMANDA!
Lindsay Wins The Game Of Dueling Dates
Carl meets up for drinks with Sarah. Lindsay goes on a date with a gent named Stephen. Carl puts all of his red flags on the table right off the bat. He tells Sarah (in so many words) that he’s afraid of commitment. Carl kind of, sort of, disinvites Sarah to the house. She sees what a dumpster fire he is and walks out on the date. Thank you Sarah! Lindsay and Stephen had a great date. Lots of chemistry, lots of laughs and fun. She and Stephen even kiss. She has a great time. Yay Lindsay!
Still to come on Summer House recaps: Lindsay and Stephen become official. Jules and Carl hook up. Danielle and Carl hook up again. Carl wants a threesome with Danielle and Jules. Ewwwwe! Luke betrays Hannah? No! Hannah, Paige and Amanda argue over Luke. Kyle and Amanda set a wedding date. Kyle and Amanda have a conversation that HOPEFULLY is a break up.
