Thanks for being patient with me tonight and allowing me to delay my Below Deck recap. It’s the highest rated show on Bravo, but I still have some personal priorities. Banjo and I are on different sleeping schedules and it’s complicated. This dog used to only go twice a day. Now, he needs to go out twice an hour. We enjoyed watching The Voice together, but I couldn’t sing to him much because it was the finale and everyone was belting it out. Also, because I cannot sing. Shhh don’t tell Banjo, I’m all he knows. : ) Okay, on with the show!
Team Mustache Ride
Well now, from the title it seems like someone is going home. I hope it is not Jessica. She’s a third stew, that means she is still learning and Heather is not very good at training. Also, as I have said before, Jessica and Fraser were both on WHHL a few weeks ago and both felt like Heather basically did nothing. Meanwhile, we begin with Rayna fighting with Jake. Eddie walks up to intervene because the charter guest can hear her. Eddie is not that great with personnel issues. Rayna storms off mumbling “I don’t want anything to do with this boat. I’m Team Mustache Ride.
However. Wes seems to be taking Rayna’s side. Bad move. Captain Lee loves Eddie. He’s like his new Katie. He’s the one Captain Lee trust and confides in. Then Wes tells the camera he thinks Rayna is over reacting. Wes is the peacekeeper within a turbulent deck crew.
Rachel pulls off another amazing Greek dinner. Eddie declines Captain Lee when he asks for a deckhand update. He wants to handle it themselves. Rayna tells Eddie that Jake is disrespectful. Jake tells Heather that Rayna give him attitude about everything. Eddie compliments Rayna. Fraser and Heather chat on break about Jessica. They are over her. How the heck do you choose between Rachel’s French toast and biscuits and gravy? I don’t even like breakfast. But, I would have to order both. Or a half order of each? When I was a senior in high school I was also a freshman in college. I had to go to the high school to take senior history because they didn’t allow us to take it earlier. At the college me and my bestie would have “sperm and biscuits” for breakfast. We thought were were very clever with that nickname. LOL.
Who Wants A Ticket Home?
It’s time to say goodbye to these charter guests. The were nice. The primary said watching the deck crew trying to get the slide up was the funniest thing he’d ever seen. That pissed off Eddie. When the guests left, Rachel says, “I’m afraid.” Captain Lee responds with “Some people should be.” UT OH. Everyone is worries about Captain Lee being pissed. Rayna says, “I don’t get paid enough to be this stressed.” It’s time for a crew meeting. They are halfway through the season and Captain Lee is unhappy with the deck crew. He is fine with the interior. Take that Heather! But he threatens to fire the deck crew if they can’t get it together. The tip was “only” $19K.
Captain Lee calls a meeting with the deck crew. He blesses them all out. He threatens to fire all of them if they can’t get their shit together. There was a lot of cussing. He’s really pissed. He says if he has to fire all four of them he will just cancel the rest of the season. Ut Oh. There are no more second chances. Rayna sort of lets it go in one ear and out the other. Eddie feels bad. Everyone just wants their shore leave.
Watch Your Mouth!
The crew took a beautiful boat ride to a Beach Club. It’s fancy. Did Heather just order well done steak in public? What’s next? A-1? At dinner Eddie tells the deckhands they are going to practice putting the slide up and down the next day. Heather, who is in a relationship gets really cozy with Jake. Wes and Jessica also get pretty close. It’s almost last call and the couples are forming. Remember that? 🙂 Jessica kissed Wes before going to bed. She tells production she doesn’t remember kissing him. Heather thinks she is a rapper. And whatever she was rapping had a whole lot of the N word. I knew I didn’t like Heather this whole season. Rayna points out that is “cancel culture” behavior. She can’t use that word. Heather also said it twice in the bar to Rayna.
Rayna is being very chill about this situation. But, Heather denies she even said the word and then runs off to her cabin. Well, Heather you did say it. She tells Rachel, her bunkmate, that Rayna made her feel bad. And she again denies saying it. Seriously? It happened five seconds ago. And Rayna was BEYOND cool about it. She was just letting you know that’s not okay. She said it at the bar, she said in the crew mess. They next day Rayna admits to the film crew that Heather’s behavior was NOT okay. If there is a reunion, Heather should probably fake Covid or something.
Getting The Kinks Worked Out
The next morning, the crew practices putting the slide out. And bringing it back in. Captain Lee once again praises Fraser for his laundry duties. Then, Captain Lee holds a preference sheet meeting. The next guests are interesting. The female primary will be arriving with her jaw wired shut due to an automobile accident. So she cannot eat any solid food. They want a silent disco beach party. WTF is silent disco? Meanwhile, Jessica and Fraser prepare the rooms for new guests. They talk about Jessica and Wes’s attraction. Wes is confused by Jessica Name one thing you have seen Heather do. I dare you. I think she has written down a few breakfast orders and occasionally carried out a plate or two. That’s it.
Captain Lee is not happy with Eddie and the deck crew. And that is on Eddie. He’s threatening to start handing out plane tickets home courtesy of Captain Lee’s Travel Agency. UT OH! Eddie says that the deckhands mistakes reflect poorly on him. He should have been SUPERVISING and INSPECTING their work! That is all on him! Rayna complains to Wes about how Heather is saying the n word all the time but she is constantly the one in trouble. Wes doesn’t know what happened and Rayna. Then on a smoke break, Rayna tells Fraser what happened with Heather. And what happened with Eddie. She seems that she was really anger with Heather and took it out on Eddie. Rayna apologizes to Eddie. She tells him about Heather’s rapping. He sort of blows it off. She leaves and mutters, “He doesn’t understand.”
Again, thanks for understanding about the delay. Sometimes, life calls.
