We join Shae and Jesse on their surprise special date. At a bowling alley. Yeah, I was right before – he is definitely winging it. Shae doesn’t even like bowling because the rental shoes gross her out. Which is a little prissy, but speaks to the fact that Jesse doesn’t know how to do something romantic for her. She wonders out loud in a passive-aggressive way if her friends are having fun in Morgantown. Jesse B shows up and crashes the date, and tells Shae that Jesse J invited him. Shae is frustrated, and tells us that she wishes she could drive to Morgantown right now.
Back at Hyperglow, all of Cara’s body paint has been rubbed or sweated off. Not sure which. And Anna runs into a friend of hers from summer camp that she’s known forever. We get it, they’re having a great time. Anna starts making out with her camp friend. Tyler is all up on a girl, and goes to buy her a drink. And then meets her boyfriend. Then he’s bummed out, tells Joey about it, and the same thing apparently just happened to Joey. While Anna and her camp friend are figuring out where they can go make out some more, the girl Tyler was trying to get with approaches him and wonders if she can keep hanging out with him. Her boyfriend is understandably uncomfortable with this situation, and they have some drama. He just leaves her, tells her to f*** off, and then we’re watching strangers hit him and call him a douchebag. I’m sorry, but these random characters are far more compelling than Shae and her douchebag boyfriend; why aren’t they on this show instead?
Back at the apartment where they’re all staying the night, Anna’s camp friend is suddenly all over Katie. And Katie’s just letting it happen. Cara points out that Anna was with him earlier, and then Anna just seethes with anger. Cara throws him out. Drama continues when Tyler’s girl from the party is still hanging out with them, and he’s convinced that Cara’s trying to keep them apart because she’s jealous, when really, she’s trying to figure out how to get the girl home safely. Tyler, even if the girl did want to hook up with you, Cara would have every right to be annoyed about it.
Shain’s out cold – big night for him! – and Joey messes with him while he sleeps.
I just realized this is a secret fear of mine, and also possibly why I like to live alone.
The next morning, the gang is doing the morning-after gossip thing, which I think is what I miss most about college. Salwa makes fun of Tyler for trying to break up the girl and her boyfriend. Cara tells us her crush on Tyler is over. Shain tells us he had a blast, just going with the flow.
So what do you think, Gasmi? Is Jesse J both the worst name and the worst boyfriend ever? Was Salwa right when she accused Shae of being a “dumb bitch?” And if you jump off a bridge, and no one is around to see it, are you still a man? Can’t wait to hear what you think!
