Once they have the house to themselves, Captain Needy surmises that Kyndra wants to have a good time, so they head out to the liquor store. The music informs us that she has a “twinkle in both eyes,” and is in fact calculating the demise of poor Needy. He puts up almost no resistance as they buy some whiskey.
While the other six roomies sit down to one seriously fancy dinner, Needy insists that Kyndra wants very badly to see him drunk, and she won’t settle for buzzed.
“No seriously, this is all for her. I swear. Never mind that it’s my only chance to get laid.”
She then insists that he do whiskey shots, and he protests for a bit before flat-out admitting to us that he’s going to have to get drunk if he wants to get laid. We get a montage of them drinking and flirting all around the house, while Grandpa laments to the other roomies at dinner that they wish Captain Needy was there. Swift (hey Swift! You’re still here!) points out that he’s been desperate for a girl to hang out with, so they should let him have his moment.
Kyndra tells Needy that he’s a “grown-ass person” who can do what he wants, but he says it was fun having everyone be “super-proud” of him. He says they won’t be back for a while, but if editing is to be trusted, they’re already on their way home! Alas! Swift has to run inside to pee, so he finds Captain Needy first. He immediately knows Needy is drunk, but promises not to say anything.
Latoya asks if Needy got it in, but Swift is suddenly concerned about people minding their own business. RomCom has deduced that Kyndra is drunk, but when she voices her concerns to Grandpa, he insists that Captain Needy isn’t drunk.
And now that everyone is home after several hours of an empty house, these two finally get down to business.
The next morning, Captain Needy tells us that he’s embarrassed even though he knows he didn’t do anything bad the night before. He apologizes to no one in particular for the letdown. Because it’s our problem, apparently.
Apropros of nothing, Captain Needy confesses to Ginger that he drank the night before. Ginger gives him just enough of a reaction to bring out the guilt he was clearly already feeling, and then asks if Needy wants to stay sober or not. Finally satisfied with the level of attention he’s received for the moment, Captain Needy ominously tells us he’ll have to “see how it goes.”
“My journal is SO getting a pageful tonight!”
Out for the night, the roomies run into Max, and it’s awkwardness all around. Ginger especially doesn’t know what to do with himself. When Max suggests a drink, Mo’Rum gives him a casual brush-off, and somehow he ends up sitting between Latoya and RomCom. Okay, can someone (anyone?) give Max a little sumthin-sumthin for his trouble?
