This is it – the last episode before the finale. What do you think about our Louisiana Losers at Love? Are they ready to be launched into the real world and do they stand a chance at eternal happiness? My spidey senses still say no and Steve must feel the same way, since this week he decided to test their new education by thrusting them back into their home environments while dragging their dates with them. I’m sorry to say I don’t think things look good for many of these match ups, but only time will tell. So let’s get down to business and see what happened when the real world collided with our Tough Love bootcamp girls.
The episode picks up with the girls calling their Tough Love Lab Experiments and inviting them to meet their families in their hometowns. Nothing too exciting happens except poor Melissa doesn’t know how to end her conversation with Chris, so she concludes by saying she will “pop his Boston cherry.”
Danielle is still all confused about the emotions that were brought up with seeing Kevin (her kid’s babydaddy). So JoAnne sits her down for a talk to try to straighten out her head. JoAnne’s advice is to confront Kevin with the idea and see what he says so she can move forward one way or another or something like that. I’m not really paying attention because I’ve just realized the girls are probably living in squalor with only a facade of a gorgeous mansion in the parts that are typically on film.
So everyone flies to their respective homes and the first couple we follow is Donna and George. Well, really the guy’s name is Chris, but since we already have a Chris, I like to call him George. In the last few eps I’ve been referring to his as George Herbert Walker, but today I discovered I had my presiden’t mixed up and what I really meant was George Walker. How is it no reader ever caught that? Maybe we all share the same opinion that a Bush is a Bush….
Donna isn’t worried about her mother and brother meeting George W, since she has already met George Sr. and Barbara (which the show completely skips over in the meet the folks episode). But then George is introduced to Donna’s mom, spitfire Sheila, who immediately informs George that Donna usually dates men significantly younger.
Elizabeth is back in New Jersey and her first order of business is to find Paul and make sure he understands that she won’t be getting back together with him. Paul starts a trend that appears to be a statewide phenomenon in New Jersey: never answering the phone. Since he won’t take her calls, Liz writes him a Dear John letter and makes it clear she will be starting over and becoming independent after she gets out of bootcamp. She says writing the letter lifted a huge weight off of her. But I’m saddened to realize Elizabeth is in her home town, where her family still lives
