He finally finds what he’s looking for, and when the salesman asks about the size of her wrist, Ginger replies “six and a half” without missing a beat. Ummm.. what the fuck? I don’t even know the size of my own wrist! Anyway, the purpose of the bracelet is for the hook to face out if someone is single, and in if someone is in a relationship. Kind of like a claddagh ring.
The girls head to the main island while Swift looks up ways to catch a chicken. Apparently, the girls have been “dominating” in the prank department, and Swift has been quietly letting it slide in anticipation of getting them back hardcore. If you’ve seen any of the previews during the entire season, you’ve probably guessed that his plan involves live chickens. He and Grandpa are very excited.
Before, after, or possibly during a nap, Mo’Rum requests a massage from Ginger. He excuses himself, saying he needs to get some water, then gets the bracelet (and a quick seal of approval from Latoya) before returning. Ginger is nervous, but Mo’Rum loves it and tells us that she’s never met anyone who is so kind to her and so accepting of her bullshit.
Maybe Ginger is secretly Amish or a farmer and is therefore used to shoveling a ton of shit.
Latoya teases Mo’Rum about her bracelet and being “official” with Ginger. They then get ready to head into town while Swift looks up more stuff on how to catch chickens. I hope he’s deleting his Google history, especially since he has the WORST POKER FACE EVER. He looks extremely guilty and suspicious when Mo’Rum walks in, and she immediately notices. She lets it go, though, because she and Toya are on a mission to buy Ginger a bracelet to match hers.
Once they’re safely gone, Swift hails the boat himself, acquires a cardboard box, and begins chasing around some chickens. He is shocked to learn that they can fly, and declares that his job has suddenly become more difficult. Someone didn’t do enough research, which is surprising since we saw him researching in multiple scenes.
Next time, maybe try penguins. Or perhaps flamingoes.
We are then treated to quite possibly the best sequence of the entire season, in which Swift and some of his local friends chase chickens around to some theme music that’s straight out of “Shaft,” but uses “Swift” instead. It’s pretty excellent. It feels like Swift had a whole other show happening all season, and we’re just getting a little snippet here at the end.
He returns to the house with his cardboard box containing two poor little chickens, and the roomies inside the house may or may not hear some suspicious muffled clucking from outside. Swift stows them away in a random corner of the property to the tune of some jaunty caper music. I kind of think Swift is just insane at this point, and it’s awesome.
