Party montage! RomCom tells us that she’s having a good time even though Grandpa’s not there, and she likes letting loose and being herself.
And THEN! Mo’Rum and RomCom have a drinking contest, and RomCom runs and chugs away with the victory. Mo’Rum (and I) wonder where the hell that girl has been all season. She’s excited by the possibility of having “a legitimate wingwoman.”
And now, certain doom. Grandpa Buzzkill shows up and, upon realizing that RomCom has had a few drinks, promptly pours on the judgment and wants to leave. Keep in mind, RomCom is still perfectly coherent and is in no way embarrassing herself or anyone else. And she embarrasses herself while sober every time she talks to or about Grandpa Buzzkill, so that is an accomplishment. Captain Needy is also thrilled to see RomCom having fun and annoyed with Grandpa Buzzkill for caring that she’s drinking and, you know, enjoying life and stuff. How dare she?!
Swift and Grandpa walk away from the party, and Swift tries to broach the subject. Before he gets through half a sentence, Grandpa interrupts to ensure that he will be ending things with RomCom, he just hasn’t “gotten to it yet.” Swift is happy to hear this news.
Back at the part, RomCom says if Grandpa can’t handle her drinking, it’s good that it’s over. Looks like she pieced together that super-complicated puzzle all on her own, Grandpa Buzzkill! She admits to being tipsy, but insists she’s not wasted.
Ginger tells Latoya and RomCom that he has no idea what he is to Mo’Rum. RomCom declares herself and Ginger the “nice ones” who do things for the people they like, and Ginger repeats Mo’Rum’s “priority, not an option” mantra. Or maybe she got it from him, who knows. Maybe, just like their Hakuna Matata tattoos, they came up with it at the same time because it was beamed to them on whatever wavelength they frequent. Ginger repeats his declaration that he’s not Mo’Rum’s type, while Latoya tells us that Ginger should take some of his caring nature and extend it towards himself.
Sidebar: are we really comparing these two situations? Yes, Mo’Rum is no saint and has been sending very mixed signals, but is that really comparable to the way that Grandpa treats RomCom? Also, Ginger clearly has his own issues that is causing his self-destructive behavior, because nothing Mo’Rum has done would cause that without some other circumstance.
Back at the house, Latoya calls Ginger the man of Mo’Rum’s dreams and encourages her to make a decision. She tells Mo’Rum that she caught him talking to RomCom about it and he’s getting frustrated. And he is expressing that frustration by sitting outside performing the much-promoted action of punching himself in the face.
