I’m not sure if my DVR didn’t record episode 12, last week or if I somehow deleted it. I may have deleted it on purpose because Captain Lee is going to talk about the loss of his son. And that will be difficult. I’m watching the episode now on demand. Which means I have to watch all the commercials. UGH. I totally remember recapping this episode, but I can’t find a recap. So it’s time to start another Below Deck recap for this week. Just incase you need a refresher on the last episode, here it is.
S8, EP12 Blue Skies and UTI’s
James Is A Complete Asshole
Okay, on to the latest Below Deck recap. James continues to be a fuckstick toward Elizabeth. On the last episode Izzy got meds for a UTI. This week a doctor is coming to see Elizabeth, and Rachel. Elizabeth joins the UTI club. Rachel needs an IV for her tummy issues. Why does Francesca have to tell Elizabeth that setting the table requires plates and cutlery? WHY? And now she and Ashling are ignoring her on radio. She should have directed the radio to Elizabeth though. Instead, Elizabeth’s mind is on James and she is interrogating Ashling to see if she thinks James is into her now.
Elizabeth and James are both assigned to clean the crew mess. Elizabeth gets more pathetic every second. Girl. Stop being so damn easy. If only you gave Francesca this much of your attention, you might be able to do your damn job properly. By the way, the charter guests are super easy. Eddie promotes Izzy to lead deckhand. And she is worried that James won’t listen to her. And that is a valid concern.
Elizabeth Is A Waste Of Space
Rachel survives the last service without crapping her pants. Some of the last few days that has been my goal of the day. So, I see that as an accomplishment. Meanwhile dinner is still happening. Captain Lee is at the table. And birdbrained Elizabeth radios James to meet her in the main salon. So. She. Can. Feed. Him. A. Cannoli! I can’t with this one. Kate would have thrown her overboard on the third charter. She finally gets some kisses out of James before heading to bed. Gurrrrl. He’s just not that into you.
The next morning, Francesca struggles to the eggs out to the guests. I have know idea how you would know if eggs were over easy or over medium or whatever unless the chef told you and pointed before taking them out. And for some reason the egg dishes are on the bar and they are trying to do this over the radio. This recap seems to be taking forever. I think it’s because I got started after the show ended so I not racing the clock. Also, I feel like shit. The very sweet charter guests finally leave. they got $1,400 each.
Clean The Beach
The crew is committed to cleaning a beach as some volunteer work. No one is very excited and most of them still don’t feel well. Rachel goes onshore for a IV drip. It’s not a cute white beach where you just pick up stray trash. It’s a mangrove full of shoes and underwear and other random shit. The remove TONS of crap. Like boatsful. Everyone heads back to the boat including Rachel. It’s bed time. They worked for a long time.
Everyone goes to bed except Elizabeth and James who decide to fuck in the VIP guest cabin. It is Izzy’s first day as lead deckhand. And I’m surprised that Rob isn’t thrilled about it. And the next day, they both treat her like shit. Ashling has the tummy thing now. The doctor is going to see her. The problem is I have it too and this is not helping me. Apparently, having to sprint to the bathroom is like yawning. When someone else does it, you have to do it too. OMFG! It’s the Queen of Versailles people on the next charter. UGH. For so many reasons.
Within minutes of the new work day everyone knows that James and Elizabeth slept together all night in the guest quarters. James and Elizabeth may both be getting fired next week.
WWHL With Captain Lee and Rachel
Captain Lee was pissed about how James and Rob treated Izzy on her first day as lead deckhand. Am I the only one that flinches when Andy call Captain Lee, “Lee”? Captain Lee soft peddled on Rachel’s off shore drunkeness. Holy crap! Tornado Warning, Severe Thunderstorm Warning! my heart is banging out of my chest! Looks like it will be like this until seven am.
Sorry. Trying to calm the fuck down. Captain Lee said that Elizabeth should have been fired. I still think it could happen next week. Rachel pays her rent by doing “Eat my Cooter!” Cameos.
Why the hell did Andy do a top five of his favorite karoke songs at the end. Who cares?
