I hope I will be awake enough to do tonight’s Below Deck recap. I am exhausted. I’m starting to wonder if it is a booster side effect, even though I have been sleeping like the dead for hours prior to the shot. I also can’t remember shit. I’m also drunk more often than not. So that may explain why I do not remember recapping last nights shows. 🙁 I’m just being honest, I am not holding up well over here. I just want to sleep until 2023. I do appreciate all of you who come here to read everyday. Especially, those of you taking a deep dive into the archives. It helps A LOT. The more pages you read the better. UPDATE, I did fall asleep before the show started and slept for several hour. Let’s just do it now. And then I’ll go back to bed. I think I have a mild sinus infection. Or it might just be that we went from the mid seventies to the high twenties in a very short period of time.
I had totally forgotten that Jake announced he is engaged. It doesn’t seem to slow down his makeout game though. We pick up with Rachel still struggling to feed the primary, Chelsea with her jaw wired shut. Chelsea, the primary, is crying in her cabin between courses. So, suffice it to say things aren’t going well. Heather is irritated she actually has to work on this charter. Next up, is a silent disco on the beach. Why on earth would you have a disco night with no music? People are dumb. Oh they are wearing headsets for the music. Still, that’s weird. But the guests loved it.
Heather’s Use Of The N Word Continues To Be an Issue
Rayna and Wes continue to discuss Heather’s use of the N word on multiple occaisions. Also, Rayna is hurt that Eddie is referring to it as no big deal. Heather cannot figure out why Rayna is giving her the cold shoulder. Fraser explains to Heather why she is getting the cold shoulder. Heather goes to her cabin to cry. Captain Lee is struggling to find a third stew for the last two charters. He also has to go to dinner with these charter guests. He’s not thrilled. But, on the plus side, he loves Rachel’s food.
The next morning Heather is almost an hour late getting up. It doesn’t look like Fraser is up yet either, but he was on nights. That leaves Wes trying to figure out how to make cappuccinos and lattes. This is not good. Heather suggests a possible new stew to Captain Lee.
After a difficult docking in high winds, the grateful charter guests finally depart. They all got a $2,000 tip and a day off at the beach. So they are all in good spirits. The next morning they all get ready to head to the beach. Heather tries to talk to Rayna about their situation again. Heather apologizes again. She seems to really be trying. Rayna is also receptive to the apology and they hug it out. Fraser has a huge crush on Jake (along with half the female crew) and they bond on the pontoon boat on the ride over.
Reggae Beach seems like a blast. I wish I had coconut shrimp. Wes is more of a loner who doesn’t feel like he fits in, so he goes off to paddle board. Heather feels like things are good with Rayna. But Rayna can’t really forgive her.
Rayna Is Doing The Most
Rayna gets more aggressive the more she drinks. She’s jealous of Fraser who is kind of on a date with Jake. She takes a paddleboard out to disrupt their flirting. Eddie has a full on meltdown because there is a spider on his umbrella. They all want to go back to the boat and sleep, they are exhausted. Captain Lee has been sleeping the whole time . Rayna continues to try to cock block Fraser. She gets in the bed with Jake naked and Fraser is pissed. Next week, it’s a brand new charter.
Rayna looks completely different on WWHL. She’s really pretty. Rayna is talking about the situation with Heather. Rayna says the editing doesn’t show everything that went down with her and Heather. She said that she felt Heather was fake in her apology. Jake is not really in a relationship with Paris, his fiancée it’s just about getting her a green card. So perhaps saying that on national TV is not really a thing? Rayna says she is down for a threeway with Jake and Fraser.
