Throughout the day, people come in to see Levi and find Alvin there. It’s all blah until one person comes in. For once, he’s not a blurred out face. He tells the two that John is running a race. They’re all shocked and mad. Who didn’t see that coming.
We pop over to Esther and Levi on a plane. They’re going to Florida. HEY I WAS JUST THERE. ME GUSTA. Except I no gusta them. I did really well in spanish in high school, can’t ya tell. Esther interviews that the Amish aren’t supposed to go on planes. Well, it’s a good thing you’re not Amish. OH WAIT. Levi is trying hardddd to woo her.
Random scene with Merlin and his gang of Merry Men. Haha. (slaps knee) They’re about a threatening as a band of puppies and this one guy has a soul patch and all I can think of is free soul patch! (Madelyne, dedicated to you!) Also, FREE VIVI!
Down in Florida, Levi is just smitten by Esthers long locks and conservative bathing suit. As are all the other men watching this show. Esther voice overs again that women are not supposed to go to the beach alone with a man. Jumped the gun a bit, eh. I hope you brought some knee pads, cause you are going to be praying for a longgggggg time. Also, Esther almost feels sorry for leading Levi on. Almost.
Back in PA, Jo gets one of his friends to come in to help run things. I guess they think they’re not capable enough to do things with just the two of them. They make up a plan to get John and his stupid buggy race.
Zipping back to FL, Levi and Esther are having dinner on the beach. It’s sweet, but there’s not enough talk about Esther so she needs to bring herself up and revert all attention on her.
So the dinner starts and it’s awkward with a capital A. Levi asks her how she feels and out comes this story. I’m not really sure what it had to do with anything, but here it goes. Apparently some time ago, Esther was raped. This rape produced a baby. My guess is that she still has this child, but she kept it hidden from everyone. Now, I do not condone this action what so ever and my heart does go out to her, but does anyone else think that this just a ploy to get Levi to feel bad for her? I feel like he didn’t really act shocked at all. Basically, all of this leads up to Esther telling Levi that she does not like him. Well well.
Finally its the day of THE BUGGY RACE. John arrives early with some big burly dude to set everything up. Lots of blurred out faces show up to support the event. How kind of them. John interviews that buggy races are dangerous because it’s very easy to lose control of them. Shocker. Merlin and his Merry Losers don’t think that John can win for them. But alas, he wins the first round. Of course that means he becomes a cocky little SOB. Just you wait. Meanwhile, all these people are out there making it rain and blowing all this money on some little punk. Is there really nothing else to do in Lancaster?
THIS IS BETTER THAN NASCAR. IF YOU AIN’T FIRST, YOU’RE LAST.
