Happy Summer House recap day! I spent the weekend celebrating my baby boy turning 5 (SOB). I’m exhausted today and I don’t even drink! I don’t know how our Summer House gang does it. But my God I’m glad they do! Before we begin, I have to acknowledge the amazing TT readers. We had some debates happening in the comments last week. There were a couple of Ciara defenders coming in hot. I appreciate any and all comments (except the white condiment ones. Looking at you DebSF!! LOL). I love hearing everyone’s opinions, whether I agree with them or not. Your passion is why I love to write for TT. It’s the love of this show that brings us all together. At the end of the day, we ALL agree that we hate Austen with the fire of a million suns. What’s more beautiful than that?
The Glass Throw Heard ‘Round The Hamptons
Now, we really pick-up from the fight from last week. Ciara is whisked away by a producer. Danielle is shaking. Lindsay wants everyone to take a breath. Paige is somewhere stirring her cauldron, casting a spell for round two. Carl mourns his white pants as they are ruined from the wine Ciara threw. Craig defends Ciara to Kyle and Carl. He says that she and Austen continued to see each other after Vermont. His exact words are “they were as official as me and Paige are”. He thinks what Austen did is terrible. He thinks the same of Lindsay. Fuck Craig. He has no moral high ground with any of this. He mansplains to Lindsay why she’s at fault for not seeing Ciara’s side. Ciara didn’t care about her feelings in Vermont. They’re not friends. Austen is a scumbag. End of story.
Before Hurricane Hubs hits the Hamptons, they get ready for some beach volleyball. It’s the 80’s vs 90’s. The 80’s team dressed in mustaches. The 90’s team dressed as the 80’s team. Ciara pulls Danielle aside for a talk. Ciara apologizes for throwing the glass. Danielle explains that she wants a friendship with Ciara but doesn’t feel safe with her at the moment. Danielle says she will always see both sides of the issue, regardless of her strong friendship with Lindsay. She asks Ciara to give her the benefit of the doubt in the future. I think that clicked with Ciara. Danielle says that she can see that Ciara is obviously very hurt by Austen. She encourages her to talk to Lindsay again about the whole situation. They hugged it out which was nice to see.
Talking It Out
The 90’s kids brought it with the dress up for volleyball. Mya even had a Kyle sty. 90’s kids win the game. Kyle and Carl discuss Mckenzie. Carl is backing off a bit from her. He really wants to hit the one year sober mark, that’s his focus. Kyle tells Carl that he’s afraid to really discuss the prenup issue with Amanda. Awesome way to start off a marriage, kids! Craig and Amanda discuss Paige. He tells Amanda that he’s serious about Paige. Yet, he won’t make it official with her. Make it make sense. Danielle and Lindsay talk about Ciara. Danielle asks Lindsay if she meant to hurt Ciara. Lindsay says no. Lindsay says that she didn’t think Austen would choose to focus on her and not Ciara. Danielle asks her point blank if she loved that. Lindsay doesn’t answer. Danielle points out this is all collateral damage.
Back at the house from the beach, Ciara pulls Lindsay aside for a talk. Ciara explains her feelings for Austen. She felt disrespected by both Austen and Lindsay. Ciara felt like Lindsay was rubbing it in her face. Lindsay apologizes for her part in the triangle. She says that she and Austen have a bond that isn’t breaking over this situation. Ciara FINALLY seems to see just how toxic and fucked up this all is. She says she’s backing all the way off. She and Lindsay can move on. Danielle talks to Craig and Paige about Charleston. Robert is going to be taking a head chef job in Charleston. The positive reviews Paige and Craig give make Danielle feel better about potentially moving there.
Life In The Big City
In the city, Ciara meets up with an ER nurse to discuss a job. She wants to get back into nursing in order to establish her life in New York. Carl’s mom and step dad come to visit. I love them so much. His mom is so proud of him being sober. Carl confesses to his mom that he isn’t ready for a relationship. His mom tells him that if he isn’t moving ahead with Mckenzie, it may not be the right thing for him. She encourages Carl to keep focusing on his sobriety then focus on someone else. Amanda and Kyle go to a therapist. Amanda tells Kyle that she’s proud of the way Kyle handles his stress lately. They discuss the prenup. Kyle says it’s from a fiscal point of view only. Amanda feels that it’s like planning on a divorce. END SCENE.
Next week on Summer House recap: They take a party van somewhere. Amanda tells the girls about the prenup discussion. Andrea tells the gang about the girl he left behind for Paige. Paige plays victim. Lindsay brings a guy to the house. Amanda feels like Lindsay is covering up for something with her behavior. Lindsay says she’s having the best summer of her life.
The Things PCK Does For Her Dear Readers
Ciara and Andrea are on WWHL. Ok, ok fine. I’ll watch so you don’t have to! Ciara is wearing a pink lingerie looking dress with feathers. It’s a look. John Mayer is the bartender. First poll has the audience on Lindsay and Danielle’s side. Audience thought there was intent to hurt Lindsay.
Audience feels they should get a prenup. Ciara has officially kicked Austen to the curb. THANKFULLY! Andrea is so cute. He doesn’t understand half the games Andy has them play. He’s such a good sport about it all. Ciara says she felt slighted by Danielle and Lindsay at points leading up to the fight. She says they’re fine and “indifferent” at the moment. She’s dating a “few”people currently. It ends up being a cute episode. See you in the comments!
