With only two charters left, we are crawling our way to the end of the Below Deck Med recaps. It hasn’t been the worst season ever, I think it was the last one. This has been an interesting crew to say the least. I believe tonight’s episode will end with a THUD though based on the previews.
I didn’t even remember that Delaney was redhead until this episode. Katie tells Delaney that she thinks it is best that she leave after this charter. Delaney tries to make her case. Katie invites her to stay for the crew day off and she agrees. Katie goes to Mat for comfort. He says he wishes she would just fire Lexi. Meanwhile they are acting like the guests sleeping in until 10 is some crazy thing. They are on vacation. Delaney goes to work on deck. She struggles a little bit but gets the job done. Malia is not impressed. In the engine room an alarm is going off about a problem with the rudder pump.
Malia Takes A Deep Dive
Right now, the first priority is to get these picky guests off the boat. The tip envelope looks REALLY big. Captain Sandy praises Delaney highly at the tip meeting. They got $17,000. Tomorrow is their day off. They full use of all the toys and a trip to the falls. Courtney and Zee’s attraction is getting stronger. Meanwhile, Lexi is back in bitch mode talking trash about Mat. She gives Delaney laundry list of why she hates him. When she gets to the face that he is polyamorous, she says, “Nothing wrong with that.” She indicates that she is too. Meanwhile, Malia has to dive into the water and check out the rudder pump. Apparently, that is Delaney’s fault because the took too long to get the line to shore. Malia does not throw her under the bus. Malia dives in the water and discovers the rudder is just fine.
The crew get ready for a dinner out together in a private dining room due to Covid. At dinner, Delaney and Mat chat about their similar sexual preferences. This is really going to piss of Lexi. She says she has been to sex parties. You always have to watch out for the redheads. Courtney says the she and Katie could do better on the boat just the two of them than having the two other stews. Courtney is delusional. Everyone is drunk. Courtney praises Katie. Katie gives her a hug. David gives a speech praising pretty much everyone. Lexi interrupts to trash talk Mat. Everyone else is very supportive of Mat. So Lexi is pissed. Malia is offended when Delaney doesn’t heed her advice.
Party On The Yacht!
Back on the yacht, everyone drinks even more and parties in the hot tub. David shoot his shot with Delaney. He’s really wasted. He starts walking around the rim of the hot tub. Then he tries to step over to the side of the boat and misses and takes a very hard fall. Katie cries because her best friend is about to have a baby and she is going to miss it. Everyone goes to crew mess for the drunken munchies. Delaney brought two cheetah suits to wear. Apparently, she wears them everywhere she travels. Since she is leaving the next day, she decides it’s now or never. Then she balances Lexi with her feet. WTF am I watching here? Courtney put on the other cheetah leopard.
Meanwhile the guys are talking about the fact that they want Delaney to stay and Lexi to go. We all want that, you guys. Then they laugh about David doing ….um… whatever the fuck they are doing with Delaney. I’m sure David considers it tantric sex. David falls again. Everyone goes to bed. Then Zee orders some roses for Courtney for the next day.
The next morning, David’s leg is hurting more. Lexi stays in her bed while the others go to do some water sports. And of course, more drinking. Lloyd chats with Courtney and asks if she likes Zee. She says just as a friend. Lloyd says he thinks Zee likes her as more than a friend.
Can’t They Just Have A Peaceful Picnic?
Everyone goes back to the boat to get ready for their trip to the falls. David leg is still problematic. They all drink champagne on a pontoon boat to the waterfalls. Zee is really drunk. The guy has packed a full bar. The waterfalls are stunning. Then it’s time for a catered picnic lunch. Mat is wearing a “Just Be Nice” t-shirt while seated right across from Lexi. Either she cannot read, or she just can’t be nice. Lexi and Mat exchange insults. Everyone tries to get Lexi to STFU but she just keeps getting worse. Mat moves to the other end of the table. But the argument continues to escalate.
Then all the drunks have to climb a ton of stairs. Zee is too drunk to make the climb and has to be assisted by two of the guys. He can’t even stand up. Some of the girls change clothes in the van on the way to dinner. Lexi passed out in the car. Delaney tries to wake her up but she wants to sleep in the van. YAY! After two hours and 15 minutes passed out in the van, Lexi wakes up disoriented and finally finds the group. 🙁 The waiter delivers Courtney’s roses at the dinner table. Courtney loves them but is also a bit embarrassed. Zee is so drunk he fell out of his chair. Apparently, Lexi called Mat a retard. It was bleeped. His mother was a special Ed teacher.
Then, Lexi says that his parents should have aborted him. Why the hell can’t we send this cunt home? She says if this was not on camera she would smack him. Then she exits stage right. Delaney is on WWHL tonight via Zoom from Hawaii. Maybe she will stay after all. Jerry O’Connell is also on. I hope Andy asks him about Wendy Williams. Oh I forgot that he is the new co-host of The Talk. So I guess he can’t sub for Wendy. I’ll let you know in comments if there is anything important.
