Tonight’s Below Deck recap is coming to you own west coast time! You can blame Andy Cohen for this. Also, it The Voice night and that’s my bonding time with Banjo. So I hope it is okay that I’m recapping the second showing that starts at 10:30 here in real people time. 🙂 It looks like the interior, the deck and Captain Lee and Eddie all of some sort of beefing going on.
Rayna Shares Some Heartbreaking Information
Fraser wakes up with no memory of the previous evening. He finds out that he made out with Jake multiple times. He feels really embarrassed. Jake says it is fine. He had a great time. He says the titular phrase, “Plenty of Jake to go around.” I hate Heather. She wants to throw Jessica on service to see if that pulls her out of her funk. Perhaps Heather could, you know, DO SOMETHING from time to time. We have another cancer survivor as a primary. So the first night they will be having a dinner that celebrates boobs. Also Captain Lee is going to have the guest take a tender to the yacht so that when they arrive all the water toys are all set up. Sounds like a good plan to me. Unless they have ten tons of luggage. The crew hates the idea.
Rayna and Wes have conversations about how racist the US is. Rayna says she has been maced by cops and beaten up by cops. Rayna says she and one of her besties were randomly beaten in an elevator by three white guys in Minneapolis. Damn. This country has really gone to hell in a handbasket over the past six years or so. Rayna says she doesn’t want to have kids because she doesn’t want them to deal with all the hate. #Heartbreaking. Rayna has a lot of trauma she hasn’t fully dealt with. This explains her anger.
Heather Makes Some Changes
Heather meets with her stews and says for this charter, Fraser will be on laundry and Jessica will be on service and Heather will sit on her ass. Well, she didn’t say that last part. But, I remember watching WWHL with Fraser and Jessica and the both said that Heather literally did nothing but occasionally carry a plate or two out during service. Watch and tell me if you see her working. Jessica would rather be on laundry. She’s not really down with service. For some reason a bag of rotten jackfruit was found on top of the washer and dryers. Ut. Oh. Jessica texts her mom and says he wants to come home because she doesn’t like anyone on the boat. To be fair, no one really talks to her.
Fraser makes great work of the laundry room. I wish he would come to my house! The deck crew struggles mightily to get the toys out on time. The crew only had two hours to get the whole boat ready. Maybe this was not such a smart idea after all. The guests do notice on their ferry over that the boat is all set up. That is a sign that this is not their first rodeo. After a few bobbles, the guests arrive and they are happy and seem nice. They are in a rush to get in the water. Captain Lee has really warmed up to Rachel this season. The guest love their lunch of sliders and hot dogs, and basic stuff. Jake tells Wes he needs to work faster.
It’s Time For Booby Party!
Jessica is pissed that Fraser is bitching so much about the laundry room. Truth be told, it was a fucking mess and he had it all prim and proper in record time. I’d be grateful for the clean slate. It’s time for the party and the guests (have been told by production to) wonder where the stew is. Heather catches one of the guests behind the bar making drinks. Heather calls Fraser to help with drinks. Why? She is literally at the bar. Meanwhile, Eddie is dropping the hammer on the deck crew.
Captain Lee joins the guests for dinner. Rachel does a great job elevating simple foods to please the guests. Literally, in the middle of dinner, Heather calls Jessica to the master suite. Who does that leave on service? No one. Apparently, she wanted Jessica to wipe water droplets off the floor with a paper towel. What a crisis! The primary wants Heinz 57 for Rachel’s steak. Will they even have that on a mega yacht? Full disclosure, I sometimes put A1 on my expensive steak. But, only in the privacy of my own home.
Things Fall Apart…
At the end of the day, Heather tells Jessica, it’s down to the last straw when it comes to her work abilities. Training is officially over. It’s do or die. The next thing you know Jessica is back working in the laundry room. Jessica goes to bed, but first she tells Rayna what happened. Rayna says Heather is a fake ass bitch. Jessica thinks she doesn’t have any allies. But, Rayna seems to be one. The next morning, Jessica has a new mindset and is ready to try her best. But the deckhands struggle to get the slide out again and there are multiple issues. Captain is cussing up a storm. He’s pissed. Eddie could do without Captain Lee’s commentary. Is Eddie really pissed at his boat daddy?
Eddie nails Rayna with the slide. It’s a hot mess. Captain Lee calls Eddie up to the bridge and tells him to calm the fuck down. That seems to make Eddie more pissed. The guests are still great and happy to be out on all the water toys. Meanwhile, Rayna tells Fraser that Jessica just wants to go home. Captain Lee is actually washing dishes in the galley. That’s a bad sign. Also, it’s something that Heather could be doing. You know. If she did stuff. He also compliments Fraser on the laundry room.
Jake tells Rayna that she put her wet clothes in the wash, and that she also has mugs in the sink and not to leave them laying around on the deck. She says she only has one mug. This leads to a full blown screaming match that Eddie and the guests overhear. So Eddie is pissed.
Next week: The belittling of Jessica continues. Heather comes on to Jake. That is sure to piss Rayna off. Captain Lee is unhappy with the deck team.
