My apologies for the lateness of this recap Gasmii. Apparently, getting sick means that everything stops and then one has to play catch up. It sucks. But, at least I am mobile again.
So it’s time for the finale. This has been a very long season. Thank Jeebus for Big Ang (yay)! She has been an amazing bright spot in a season full of Renee breakdowns and I can’t wait for her show.
We start up with Drita and Renee meeting for drinks. They talk about the no good men in their lives. Renee is happy that most of the people Junior ratted on won’t serve very much time. She also tells Drita that she has found the place for the sit down between Drita and Karen. Drita wants to move forward. She just doesn’t want to rehash the past again because all she wants is to be able to be in the same room with Karen without the negativity. Personally, I think that Drita has missed Karen and would like some semblance of that friendship back.
Big Ang (yay!) and her son AJ go to the tattoo parlor for some fresh ink. How awesome is it that she and her son get tattooed together? It reminds me of my husband and his mom – except his mom is definitely no Big Ang – because really? Big Ang is one of a kind. Big Ang is getting Omerta tattooed across her neck. If you aren’t familiar with mob movies or history, Omerta is the code of silence. Also, you should really rent The Godfather 1 and 2 – ignore the third one because it was a total turd.
For the longest time I couldn’t figure out what it was I loved about Big Ang. And this scene kind of helped me figure it out. She’s real. Not her boobs or lips, obviously. But, she is an old school Gang Moll. That means for better or worse she will be loyal. Do I agree with the mob lifestyle? Absolutely not. But, I have to respect someone like her who is unrepentant in her beliefs when it comes to being loyal. Her son, however, is a douche. Which gives me pause because he is a product of her upbringing. But, you have to admit there is something delightful about the way she approaches the life that she was both born into and then chose for herself.
Anyway, on to Karen and CousinSuckUp. Karen tells CousinSuckUp about the plan to sit down with Drita and finally have it out. Did anyone notice the many BitchFaces that CousinSuckUp gave during that entire thing? She could actually rival Karen in the BitchFace department. She looks simultaneously angry and ill at the prospect of Karen and Drita actually behaving like reasonable adults.
Karen says some shit about Drita owning up to her lies. Again, I have to ask what the fuck is she talking about? I have yet to see Drita caught in a lie so I really really want to know if this is some kind of spin or if she just believes that Drita is lying about something or if she is just delusional enough to think that she has been completely innocent and everything is Drita’s fault.
Renee and her AJ ride go-carts. She tells him that she wants to have the house cleansed of negative energy. AJ, rightly, thinks it’s a crock of bullshit. Renee just wants to see her son smile and even says she is willing to walk around with bird shit on her face for a week if it will make it happen. It’s a really sweet moment. Although, I am kind of worried about how skinny she is.
