Gasmii! Is it just me, or did things actually happen in this episode? What a strange development.
Previously: Despite Ginger’s promise that he liked her better than Emily, Marie was skeptical and refused to get played, so she invited Max back for a visit. RomCom and Grandpa, blahblahblah, shit-ton of drama about which no one gives a fuck.
While Mo’Rum colors in a crayon drawing (Latoya considers her skin tone Crayola Desert Sand), Ginger received a phone call from Emily. Apparently she’s suddenly aware that her visit is in question, even though I don’t recall her being privy to that fact before. She says her heart wants to come and try to fix things, but her brain is telling her not to go where she isn’t wanted. Ginger refuses to tell her not to come, but tries to drop a hint that he doesn’t really want her there. She doesn’t take the bait and says she’s coming to “fix things.” As they say goodbye, we learn that Emily pronounces “bye” as “byeeeee.” Yep, she’s one of those.
Get out. Get out now.
Mo’Rum tells us that if Emily comes to visit and Ginger hooks up with her, she’s “done with this bullshit.” She cooks dinner for all of the roomies, giving Ginger some of that hardcore cold shoulder action. Random New Fact About a Roommate: Ginger says grace. Anyway, the girls pointedly thank Mo’Rum for the dinner, which looks like a really tense and quiet meal. RomCom thinks Mo’Rum should just tell Ginger that she doesn’t want Emily to come.
Something tells me Mo’Rum would rather take boating advice from the captain of the Titanic than relationship advice from this one.
Ginger heads to the main island with Captain Needy and Swifty. He once again says that if he knew what would happen with Mo’Rum he wouldn’t have invited Emily. Which is all well and good, but she flat-out asked him if she should come and he didn’t say no. Captain Needy (who must be glad for the relationship drama, because it means people will talk to him. Swift recommends sitting her down for a conversation. This guy, with the logic.
And once again, they’re having a conversation! These two, bouncing back and forth between petty pouting and logical conversations like a ping pong ball. Although something tells me Mo’Rum thinks those were invented solely for beer pong. She tells Ginger that she doesn’t want Emily to come and she’s getting played whether he realizes it or not. He hasn’t mentioned Mo’Rum to Emily, but Mo’Rum hasn’t mentioned him to Max, either. They agree that their situation “sucks,” but they still love each other. However, she assures him that she will not love him while Emily is there.
Swift salsa dances around the living room while Mo’Rum cuddles with a beer on the couch, unamused. She informs us that Swift is a “showman,” constantly checking himself out in the mirror and whatnot, and it’s getting on her nerves.
It will be a shock if Mo’Rum even HAS nerves by the end of this season that haven’t drowned in booze.
