Get your beer pong table and keg ready because it’s time for another Winter House recap! We pick up where we left off last week with Lindsay and Austen discussing Lindsay’s love declaration. Austen shoots her down by saying he loves her “like a sister.” Austen’s sister Katie must be projectile vomiting as I’m sure they never slept together, nor has he insisted they will “date” during 2021. He has completely gas lighted his “best friend”.
Say what you will about Lindsay, but that girl is ride or die for the people she cares about. I just wish she went all in with people who deserve her. Austen does NOT. To her credit, she sees that Austen is clearly putting hooking up with Ciara as a priority over her. She hugs him but warns him to not mind fuck her again.
Crazy In Love
Poor Amanda wakes up in a bad mood everyday. Kyle works too much, drinks even more and is stressed out. The gang decide to have a beer party because, frat house. Austen brings Ciara to his room to rage against Lindsay. She’s a “crazy person” who dared to have feelings for him! Ciara seems to want to back off, yet doesn’t. Which is so frustrating! She’s too beautiful and smart for this dipshit.
Meanwhile, Lindsay becomes an instant meme by laying down on a carpet venting to Julia. Lindsay has such a knack for understanding the assignment. I love her. Paige and Andrea continue to flirt. Craig is texting Natalie to get through the loneliness that comes with his friends coupling up. I have yet to see sparks between Paige and Craig, Bravo’s newest power couple. Julia offers to speak to Luke on Gabby’s behalf. Gabby jumps on her offer, which leaves a lot of questions as to why they argue later.
Frat Boy In A Little Coat
The beer party is in full swing. Lindsay tells Luke about the Austen of it all. Lindsay and Austen can communicate through their eyeballs, ya’ll! It’s special. The gang drinks heartily. Gabby announces that she loves Jason too much to hook up with Jason. Jason is hurt but moves on. In my opinion, he’s the biggest catch in that house. WHY aren’t the ladies going apeshit over him? Julia flirts heavily with Luke, causing Gabby to storm off to her room. In her cofensional, she tells us that Julia has ruined past relationships. Then why accept her offer to speak to Luke on her behalf? Amanda is feeling a bit slighted by Kyle, who’s dancing and drinking with the crew. She takes off to the bathroom to vent to her mom on the phone.
Kyle, realizing Amanda is gone, proceeds to check every room in the house (except the bathroom) to find her. He panics that he’s being a shitty fiance and that Amanda may pick up on it. It’s hilarious watching him drunkenly go room to room, wearing that amazing purple cat sweatshirt, acting like she’s vanished into thin air. I have to get that sweatshirt for my 16 year old son btw. Anywho, Lindsay Drew finds Amanda, who is in the “poop” bathroom. Amanda cries when she sees Kyle cry. This whole scene was hilarious and one the many reasons i fucking love this show! Also one of the many reasons I’ve warmed up to Kymanda.
Time To Rise And Glide
The next day the gang wake up late to go skiing. The ladies, minus Julia, go on the bunny slope. The rest ski and snowboard down a hill I have named “oh fuck no”. Kyle talks to Andrea about Paige. Andrea says he’s single and not ready for anything serious. Paige is going to have to envision her wedding with another groom sadly. Julia and Gabby go off to the side to talk. Gabby is angry at Julia, who pretends to be clueless. If what Gabby says is true, why would she trust Julia to get involved in another relationship? It doesn’t make sense. Lindsay acknowledges her many mistakes with men. She’s now thinking she needs a nice guy. YES! Jason is available Lindsay! Paige continues to flirt with Andrea.
Double Dose Of Cheese
Kyle, Ciara, Amanda and Austen go on a double date. Ciara tells us in her confessional that she really likes Austen. UGH! Austen is nervous because he hasn’t been on a proper date in three years. Paige gets FOMO as her man Andrea considers physically bench pressing her a proper date. Kyle jokes that since Amanda is turning 30, he has to shop around for a younger woman. Amanda is so happy to be out of the house that she just laughs and laughs. Austen and Ciara hold hands under the table. Ewe. I just can’t.
At the house, Gabby tells Paige that she’s only known Andrea to be a fuckboy. That makes Paige back up a little, which is good. Andrea tells Luke that he’s speaking to two other women currently. Ewe again. Craig continues to play phone tag with Natalie. Lindsay seems to open her eyes a little to Jason. YAY!
Next week on Winter House: More drinking. Gabby tells Luke that she wants him inside of her. Paige cries about being single at 28. Lindsay and Jason grow closer. Andrea takes Paige out on a date. Craig wonders why he would do that when he tells the guys he doesn’t see a future with Paige. Amanda is tasked with telling Paige that information. Thank you so much for reading this recap! Let’s keep the shit talking going in the comments!
