I was all set up to do this Below Deck Med recap in a more timely fashion but my security features (now reconfigured) were happening INSIDE THE ADMIN FORUM and that was just no bueno. So now I am already to go but the first four minutes of this episode didn’t tape for some reason. If it’s not one thing…
So we start with Jess losing her damn mind because Rob in on a day excursion with Aesha and the guests. I get being jealous or irritated but for me, I just end it when it happens that early in a relationship. If you have to tell your man not to be inappropriate with other women then you need to bail early. I understand that Rob really isn’t doing anything wrong, but Jess thinks he is and she is going about this all wrong. Plus she is still really heated that Aesha put her hand on Rob’s ass during a crew photo.
Rob & Aesha Have A Day Date!
Meanwhile, Rob and Aesha are sharing ice cream cones on shore and a very romantic little town. I want to go there. I want to go anywhere. I just don’t care anymore. I wish there was somewhere that would take an old lady who smokes way to much and a giant stinky dog that sheds like a motherfucker. We are quite the pair over here in the ghetto version of Grey Gardens. Jess wants to murder Aesha for the ass grab, she would murder her twice if she saw them wandering around on a day date unaware where the guests even are. For some reason, the guest want to go back to the boat. I would wander until dark.
Tom is starting to regret his assholery. We will see how long that lasts. He’s gone down for a nap and the guests are coming back early. So he has to get up. Why the hell did these people not eat in that charming little town? They’ve had plenty of boat food. Eat some tapas! Drink some wine! This is why I travel alone. This right here would irritate the shit out of me. You are in Spain eating chicken Caesar salads and nachos? This has to be storyline, right?
Jess Confronts Aesha
Jess makes it clear to Aesha that Rob’s ass is off limits. Aesha is more of a free spirit and finds the whole thing ridiculous. Then, Rob wonders why Aesha is being so cold. Rob thinks she is overreacting. Because she is. Rob says he feels like she has been doing nothing but questioning him for the past two weeks. In other words, since Aesha arrived. Meanwhile Jess is supposed to be working but she has locked herself in her cabin to cry. Bugsy is not amused. She tries to give Jess a pep talk. It doesn’t work. She has checked out. Rob, in a bizarre production script, goes to Captain Sandy for relationship advice. WTF?
For some reason, Tom is taking drink orders from the guests. This whole charter is weird. And this episode seems to be taking forever. Maybe just because I feel so behind after dealing with some technical crap. The guests go on a sunset cruise. And then it is time for the final dinner. Tom means to leave the guests on a high culinary note. Meanwhile Rob talks to David, the first mate about some career advice. Rob is basically asking for a job.
The Last Supper
It time for the last dinner. I think I am more ready for this season to be over than the yachties. The guests are super late to dinner as usual. I want that chilled lobster with an avocado salad. Bring it to my mouf. Down in the cabins Rob helps Jess do turndowns. And of course she picks at him instead of being thankful for the help. The guests had a silent disco pajama party. It was as weird as it sounds. And finally it is bedtime. Guess who is fighting? Rob is basically breaking up with her. The DVR cuts off before the end but I think Rob goes to tell David he will take the job.
One more episode to go…
