Can you believe this is the last Winter House recap? It’s only fitting that we pick up where we left off last week. Austen is telling Ciara about Madison’s texts. Ciara is incredibly understanding. How can she not see that she deserves better than a man child with runny eyeliner? Austen and Ciara hook up in the closet. So there’s that. Lindsay and Jason hook up too. Yay! I’m so happy about that. Craig gets a text from Natalie. She says she invited Madison, Craig’s arch nemesis, to dinner. He’s pissed. Paige and Ciara discuss Andrea and Austen. Paige is not a weak bitch, she will be fine with or without Andrea. That’s the Paige we know and love!
Ciara is scared because she’s falling for Austen. Austen discusses Ciara with Kyle. Austen tells Kyle that he isn’t ready for a relationship. He won’t do the long distance thing even though he knows that Ciara’s ‘don’t just grow on trees’. Which is not very notable as NO ONE grows on trees! Moron. Kyle tells him that Ciara doesn’t just open up to anyone. He cautions him to make sure both he and Ciara are on the same page. Sober Kyle is such a good friend. He and Amanda have grown on me. Sorry not sorry.
It’s A Snowtastic Day To Ski
It’s the last full day at the house. They are all going costume skiing, wearing the most neon they brought. Lindsay tries to be a good friend to Austen, who could clearly care less about her. God I hate him! Lindsay talks to Amanda about Austen. She tells Amanda that he’s not over Madison. Amanda grows concerned for Ciara. Again, Amanda is a good friend. Be an Amanda in a world full of Austen’s. Jason has such a cute conversation with Lindsay. He’s relieved that she is having fun and wants to continue seeing him. He is SUCH a catch and I just adore him.
Hopefully Jason appears on Summer House because I want him on my screen all the time! Platonically of course. Husby reads this so anything and everything regarding Jason is just PLATONIC. If Jason ever needs to shower, I’m offering up ours. Because, good friend. Craig isn’t excited to go home. We see the fall of his relationship with Natalie. A relationship that can’t last 2 weeks of separation wasn’t very strong to begin with, IMO. Amanda talks to Kyle about Austen and Ciara. Amanda wants to protect Ciara at all costs. Kyle wants to drink and let it play out as it will. Again, be an Amanda. Good friends don’t grow on trees!
SNOWMAGEDDON In Stowe
There’s a boob party happening. Being Winter House, it’s on brand. The ladies look amazing. The guys look ridiculous. Again, on brand. Amanda is drinking a lot. She’s upset because she wants Austen to be honest with Ciara about his intentions. Amanda pulls Austen aside to talk. Austen tells Amanda that he and Ciara are none of her fucking business. Wow. Amanda takes exception to that. Austen is such a manipulative monster. He calls her a clown and walks away from her. Kyle FINALLY (sort of) stands up for Amanda. Not really, he just wants to clarify that Austen is indeed yelling at his fiancee. Why Kyle didn’t punch him in his muppet mouth, I’ll never know.
Ciara drags Austen to her room. Austen takes this opportunity to manipulate the shit out of her. She tells him that for her, distance wouldn’t matter. Finally he can lie no more so he says he can’t say that he feels the same. She tables the conversation for the night. When it gets picked up the next morning, it’s more of the same. Whatever. I’m so sick of them. At this point, if Ciara won’t see through his bullshit, it’s on her. I cannot care anymore. Andrea and Paige though! Andrea admits he likes Paige and wants to continue seeing her. He came into the house talking to other women. He leaves planning dates with Paige and only talking to her. That honestly shocked me! I can’t wait to see how that ends and how Craig begins.
There’s Snow Place Like Home
Everyone packs to leave. Paige and Ciara have a nice conversation. Ciara, again, tells Paige how scared she is about falling for Austen. I love when Paige is a supportive, funny friend. She decides they need a vacation from this vacation. Paige’s parents come to pick her up. She’s forever in preschool I guess. They meet Andrea, who informs them of his dating intentions with their daughter. Austen and Ciara part as friends who will kiss. Whatever. Everyone leaves in true Bravo style, most leaving worse people than when they came.
Oooh we get a preview of what is to come on Summer House. It’s a stand alone scene with Craig and Paige in an elevator. Kissing! We will see how they get together y’all I’m so excited! Thank you all SO MUCH for all reading and commenting weekly. It was snow much fun! I have to thank Nanette for pulling the most amazing pictures each week. She’s the behind the scenes hero of this recap! Thank you to Tamara for allowing me this amazing opportunity. You created this incredible Bravo loving community. I couldn’t be more grateful to you for allowing me to be a part of it. Happy Thanksgiving to one and all. Let’s keep the fun going in the comments!
