I am so ready for this Below Deck recap tonight. I slept in super late today and woke up to a financial mess that needed to be sorted out. So,I just got that straighten out and now I need to WOO SAH and get on this boat with Captain Lee and sail away from all the anxiety. I am guessing that we will start with Shane getting a ticket home from Captain Lee. Also, I am not through my emails yet today due to all the drama. But, I’m working on it! Well it looks like I have another hour to devote to emails. I never set my clocks back and have just been subtracting an hour, because lazy. lol. I thought it was nine and it’s only eight, so I guess I can find something to eat now too! #CovidBrain
The Axe Falls Quickly
I almost feel sorry for Shane. He’s been called to the principal’s office and the principal is Captain Lee. When Captain Lee says “we need to have a conversation,” it’s bad news. But, Captain Lee keeps it short and sweet. WAIT! WHAT IS HAPPENING ON MY TV? 36 hours later, Rachel is telling Captain Lee to go fuck himself? DID.THAT.REALLY.HAPPEN? How the hell did it get to that point? I guess we are about to find out. And Shane brought a surfboard on the boat? Rachel is the only one not to tell Shane goodbye.
Elizabeth is probably the next to get the ax. What is going on with this season? Rachel is really missing her boyfriend. Francesca has a meeting with the stews. She praises Ashling and then talks to Elizabeth privately. I really don’t care about this. I need to know WTF is happening with Rachel and Captain Lee and why Eddie was in the room when it went down! Elizabeth is freaking out and worried she is going to get fired. Her anxiety is really kicking in. Anxiety sucks.
I love the crews nights out. The last one was very uneventful though. It’s time for a hookup! Covid is already a thing and the restaurants are still open and crowded. No one is wearing masks. Elizabeth is putting the moves on James. Rachel cries over her boyfriend. Is she really going to go home over her boyfriend? She’s a hot mess at dinner. They go home straight after dinner. Elizabeth is beyond drunk. Rachel is an angry drunk. She is yelling at Elizabeth to suck it up. She’s really aggressive toward Elizabeth. We are not getting enough shore leave time this season! 🙁
Back on the boat, drunk Rachel grabs a bottle of tequila and goes to Eddie’s cabin. She want to change cabins. I guess to be in his cabin. She likes Francesca but there is too much drama in her department. Um, Eddie just fired someone so this cabin is pretty dramatic as well. Eddie says he is there for her. She seems to really like/need that. Is she flirting with Eddie? Eddie throws her out of his cabin. Drunk Elizabeth and James sort of bond on the deck.
No One Is Bright-eyed And Bushytailed The Next Morning
It seems as though Elizabeth is trying to kill everyone from her bleach mixture. She was told that if she was going to bleach a shirt, she needed to take it outside. But she just put the bucket in the laundry room. Now all the stews are dizzy. Allegedly. Meanwhile, Captain Lee is pissed of at James because he is rewashing things that Izzy already washed. It’s a big boat. Ain’t nobody got time for that. The chief engineer shows up to the crew mess. We only see the when there is an issue. He smells some sort of solvent. Rachel calls her boyfriend in Europe and asks him to fly to the Caribbean to see her. He says he can try but Covid has started shutting down the cities.
Oh it’s only February 23rd. That’s why things were business as usual. Rachel can’t stop crying. The chief engineer discovers Elizabeth bleachy mixture that is killing everyone. He told Captain Lee and Francesca. Francesca comes down hard on Elizabeth who says she has done that on every boat she is on. However, Francesca specifically told her to take the bucket outside. Now Francesca has to talk to Captain Lee about the situation. Francesca is done with Elizabeth. She asks Captain Lee to replace her with someone more competent. Captain Lee says perhaps after the next charter, but not this close to the guests arriving. Captain Lee tells Elizabeth that she needs to get her ass in gear on the next charter if she wants to keep her job.
Eat My Cooter!?
Francesca is also on James’ ass about his dirty laundry. She is also mad at Rachel for telling Francesa to go talk to Captain Lee. Basically Francesca is mad at everyone. There is lots of tension at the meeting about the next charter guests. The preference sheets are extremely lengthy. The demands are insane. They want authentic New Orleans dinner one night. Another night they want an elaborate ten course dinner. They are very specific about their big breakfasts. I see now how Rachel loses her shit. I also think I heard her mumble that it is her special time of the month which explains her attitude and crying jags.
At the end of the meeting Rachel busts out with the comment, “Eat my cooter.” Everyone is stunned. She goes on to basically quit and tells the charter guests to suck her dick. She isn’t getting paid enough for all of that. WOW. Then Captain Lee suggests they talk to them and find out if they are as ostentatious as they appear on paper. And then, Rachel says, “Go fuck yourself!” Was that to Captain Lee? Or the guests? Captain Lee says he would rather not do that. Rachel says she loves him. But she’s out on these charter guests. Captain Lee is furious.
Rachel just will not stop with the obscenities. She’s telling everyone to eat her cooter and to shove it up their fucking asses. It’s a long stream of obscenities! Captain Lee calls her to the bridge for a chat. He asks her to consider just doing lunch and dinner on day one. He needs time to get someone else there. She refuses. An alarm goes off on the boat. Rachel goes to pack. She cusses out production and flips them off. Rachel leaves at 8 pm the night before the guests arrive. I have a feeling Rachel will turn back up because Captain Lee and Rachel say positive things about each other. I’ll update WWHL with Kate and Chastain in comments because I need to eat and Banjo is going insane outside.
Craziest episode ever!
