The roomies are driven back to the airport while they exchange memories (or in Ginger’s case, lack thereof) of arriving on the island a few months ago. Mo’Rum “jokes” about not being attracted to Ginger, and he “jokingly” asks her why she’s being such an asshole. RomCom laments to us that seeing them together makes her think that should have been her and Grandpa, “but everything got all messed up and ruined.” By… a pre-existing situation.
“I yearn for those halcyon days when I had someone to be an asshole to me.”
RomCom is sad to announce that she has the first flight out, and Grandpa is not looking forward to two hours of having no one to cater to his every whim. He tells us that he hopes she can find someone to give her what he couldn’t. So, love and affection and being treated as an equal?
RomCom begins her goodbyes by telling us that Mo’Rum got nicer. I guess “Mo’Rum got nicer” goes along with “Swift lived in the house” and “Grandpa really likes and/or cares about RomCom” as Alleged Facts About This Season. Latoya then adds RomCom being “a strong woman” to that list. Apparently she was only weak in Grandpa-related matters. Since we saw virtually nothing else from RomCom this season, I guess we’ll have to take Toya’s word for it. As is becoming tradition, RomCom gives Latoya a goodbye kiss on the lips.
This is all just a ploy so she can give Grandpa a goodbye kiss on the lips without looking weird, right? Like when Chandler accidentally kissed Monica in front of everyone while they were secretly hooking up, so then he had to start kissing everyone?
Real Ginger and Lady Fake Ginger say their goodbyes, as she of course wishes nothing but sunshine and happiness for Ginger and Mo’Rum. Tiny RomCom is so happy at the prospect of Ginger visiting her in Nebraska that she lifts his giant self off the ground. She then looks to Grandpa, who is staring a hole in the ground and motions her to come to him. They both weep like babies as they say their goodbyes.
Cry us a river, then build a bridge and get over it.
Ginger awkwardly tries to comfort a still crying Grandpa by asking if porn is the first thing he’ll do when he gets home. But there’s not much time before Ginger needs to say his goodbyes. He promises to stay in touch with Grandpa and Latoya says she loves him like a brother. Mo’Rum says Ginger taught her to appreciate things more and not to take things for granted. Oh, and she’s “spoiled, sort of.”
They say a friendly goodbye, much to Grandpa’s dismay. He can’t believe his goodbye with RomCom is going to be the most dramatic.
Dude. EVERYTHING between you and her was the Most Dramatic.
