Sorry the Below Deck Med recap is later than usual, I had to record the second airing due to multiple scheduling conflicts. It looks like the last three minutes are cut off so that will be annoying. Speaking of annoying, I hope this is Lexi’s last episode. The primary is irritated because they have been sitting for six whole minutes waiting for dinner. Then she wants her seat moved to the head of the table. Are we sure she’s not related to Lexi? In the end she complimented Chef Mat.
The Crew Gets A Night Of Shore Leave
The next night, the wind kicks up and they have to return to the dock. And, Mat and Courtney are busy putting the final touches on two cakes. Why do they need TWO cakes? The cakes look like a ten year old made them in an EZ Bake Oven. They ordered them from a bakery and were a disappointment. However, the second dinner menu itself was very good. The cakes may have looked a bit odd but they tasted great! They bragged on Mat’s food on the way out. And they were very positive toward all the crew. Whew! Captain Sandy asks Mat to stay and finish out the season. He could not be more grateful. At the tip meeting, the tip was a bit underwhelming. Captain Sandy complimented Lexi. Because, she’s an idiot.
Off we go for a night out with the crew. So far this is has been a very tame episode. Will the good vibes continue on shore? David is still crushing hard on Malia. Poor thing. At dinner, Zee talks about racism in yachting. Mat paid for everyone’s dinner and told them they can leave the tip. On the van ride home, Mat says he paid $150K for sex last year. That’s a lot of sex. Lexi tries to make amends with Malia. I guess she will be sticking around. For some reason, the crew is encouraging Lexi to take shots. The drinks are flowing and the twerking has officially begun. Courtney and Zee makeout. Mat wisely decides to go to bed early. Drunk David is still trying to shoot his shot with Malia. She’s not interested.
Drunk Lloyd gets emotional talking about a former captain who thought he was gay and called him homophobic names. He’s literally sobbing and Malia, David and Courtney are giving him hugs. Eventually, everyone comes to comfort him.
I’m not sure what I expected from this episode, but that was not it. Next week, the new charter guests party really hard. And the police boat show up for some reason.
