RomCom and Latoya head out for a night on the town. The soundtrack wonders where they’re going, and Latoya may have achieved sentience because she replies “to the club.” Upon arriving at said club, RomCom spots the guy she had been talking to the other night. She starts to get her flirt on, and her dance on, and whatnot. Somehow they accidentally run into Swift, showing how close these roommate who live on an island with only one way off are most definitely not.
BUT THEN! Grandpa is on his way, and it is portrayed in the most dramatic way possible. Forget RomCom, we’re in straight-up Lifetime territory now, and it’s making me uncomfortable. Miraculously, he walks in while the guy is elsewhere, so he doesn’t see RomCom talking to him. She and Latoya are both EXREMELY relieved, and don’t know what to do.
Maybe they haven’t watched enough Lifetime movies? Those are supposed to be educational, right?
Grandpa suddenly starts showing affection to RomCom, causing Eric (her flirting/dancing partner) and his friends to laugh it off from afar. Because she’s a drama queen and/or not that bright, she tells Grandpa about Eric’s presence, causing Grandpa to fly off the handle like an insecure teenager. Seriously, he’s calling Eric ugly and wants to fight him. He also questions RomCom’s motives for pointing Eric out in the first place, because apparently he’s never known a teenage girl before. (Yes, I know RomCom is in her 20′s.)
Grandpa decides it’s time to go, and when he goes to tell Swift, RomCom says goodbye to Eric. Grandpa literally comes over and PUSHES her away:
Seriously, I don’t even watch Lifetime movies, but I’m pretty sure this is a scene from all of them.
Poor Eric, had no idea what he was getting himself into. And his tallness seems to have set Grandpa’s mode to Napoleon Complex.
Back on Hassel Island, Grandpa berates RomCom for a really long time over the fact that she dared to say goodbye to Eric. Seriously, he makes basically the entire fight about that and accuses her of lying because she didn’t bring up his phone number that she never used, even though she had already told him about that. Grandpa needs a dictionary to match Ginger’s thesaurus, because this in no way fits the definition of lying.
She calmly tells him, once again, that she has no feelings for Eric and she’s tired of the mixed signals and wishes he would just make up his mind. Somehow, this causes him to go off on his third yelling rant in as many minutes and OH MY GOD YOU GUYS THIS IS MAKING ME SO FUCKING UNCOMFORTABLE. I HATE THIS AND BOTH OF THEM RIGHT NOW SO MUCH.
WILL SOMEONE PLEASE TAKE HIS FREAKING STEROIDS AWAY, LIKE YESTERDAY?!
