I don’t care what you say, this season Captain Sandy is one of the least annoying people on this boat. She is also doing her job and not micromanaging. Tonight’s Below Deck Med previews really highlighted how she walked her deckies and Storm through the dangerous process of untangling the anchor chain. And that is where this Below Deck Med Recap will begin.
When we last left off, Storm was in the water and having trouble untangling the chain. So, now there is a new more complicated plan. This whole thing is very nerve wracking. Especially when shown side by side with the guests doing paddle yoga. After Storm risked his life FOR TWO HOURS, the anchor is finally free. Meanwhile, Natasha is a bitch. That is all.
Jason Continues To Be A Problem
Look, I used to feel sorry for Jason because he is really struggling to fit in with the rest of the deck crew. But now, I am starting to realize he’s not pulling his weight at all. Storm has had his fill of him. He gives him some very specific and simple assignments that he fails to complete. And, he has a bad attitude. The guests are having a lovely time though. They seem like easy guests. No food restrictions of note, and they are just happy to be there. It seems like this is their last day. They are jet skiing and getting ready to eat sushi on the beach.
Speaking of slackers, Natasha continues to spend all of her time on the phone with her ex-boyfriend. Is it me or is letting the crew have their phones on charter a new thing? I don’t recall this issue before and the same thing is happening down under. Captain Sandy just so happens to investigate the stew pantry. Because, production. So she calls Natasha on the radio to have it cleaned up.
Let’s Go For A Sushi Picnic On The Beach!
Natasha asks the deck crew to help her set the table. Seriously? Not set up the tables, which they did because that is their job. But, to lay the place settings. Back when my parents were alive, and um the sister in this anecdote, my sister and I used to love setting the table. My mother collected dishes even when we lived in Libya so she has a lot of options. As do I today, because it is a sickness. And clearly heredity. Yet sis would still go out to TJ Max for new dishes or tablescape stuff. God forbid it it was ever the same thing twice. My point and I do have one, is setting the table is fun! And WTF else does Natasha have to do?
The reason Natasha can’t be bothered to set the table is because she is so busy taking selfies with Dave. I am curious why Dave it is there. They are having sushi for dinner. There is nothing for him to cook. Is he that desperate to be around Natasha? She is not good enough for him. Or well anyone really. Storm noticed this as well.
Dolly Parton And Guy Fieri?
Look. I love Dolly Parton. And I enjoy Guy Fieri on Food Network. But this may be the most ridiculous party theme ever. Nevertheless, after dinner that is the theme of their final party. What is one to do with that? Did Natalya just say she has no idea when Dolly Parton was big because she doesn’t go back in time? Gurl. Dolly is EVERYTHING right now. Meanwhile, back on shore, Dave is making homemade sorbet using dry ice. Yes, please. And just like that, it’s time to go back to the boat. The guys on the deck crew are all wearing Dolly wigs and dresses when the guests return. Two of the girls have birthdays Dave makes the most amazing three layer purple birthday cake. It was all a hit with the guests.
It looks like party time, EXCELLENT. Natalya is irritated that she is doing all the work, and yet Natalya is claiming her work as her own to Captain Sandy. Natasha is a evil person who does nothing because she is busy stringing alone two guys while Kyle and Natalya do everything. As it turns out it is quite easy to tell Natasha and Natalya apart. Natalya is he one working and Natasha is the one on her phone with her ex blaming everything on her stews when Captain Sandy complains. Storm vents to Natalya about Jason. Jason is likely to get the ax. And did we know that Natalya and Jason have a thing going on? They are cute together.
They Guests Stay Up Drinking All Night
At four am the drunk girls are ready for more food, “like pizza bites or something.” They finally go to bed just before six am. That is when Kyle and Natalya go down. And it is Mzi’s birthday! Natasha who does jack shit goes to Captain Sandy to complain about her stews. They are working past the point of exhaustion. Perhaps instead, Natasha could GET OFF HER PHONE AND DO SOMETHING.
After the guests leave, Captain Sandy calls Natasha to the bridge. Maybe she is on to her?
