Roughly two things actually “happened” this week, in the sense of actual events occurring, and the rest of the episode was talking about one of those two things or the AustinHateFest of last week. It was rough, I don’t mind saying. Y’all may hate Austin, but he’s not a hypocrite and he’s anything but wishy-washy. It’s incredibly refreshing.
Derek spends 75% of the episode going to different people who were at the meeting and gently dressing them down for not sticking up for Austin. He speaks to Ryan first, and while Ryan does agree that he probably could have stepped up more in Austin’s defense, he’s sick of the boy drinking his face off and gettin’ all crazylike. Ryan also makes the point that if Austin had come at him physically twice, Ryan would have filed a restraining order, too. Fair.
The rest of Derek’s story is taken up by his horrible HORRIBLE date with Duncan, the older British dude he’s completely into and annoyingly refers to as “the boy.” Seriously, the man is pushing 60. After said date, Derek meets Austin and Jake at a bar, Duncan walks in, and makes fast friends with Austin and Jake – so much so, that they invite him to Austin’s “Look, I Can Drink and Not Get Crazy” cocktail party. Derek can’t believe this, and swears never to speak to Austin again. At least until next week.
For Austin’s part, he makes the rounds and talks to Reichen and Ryan about the HateFest, and it goes pretty well. He listens to both men when they express concern about his drinking and violent behavior, which both surprises and impresses me. It looks like Austin’s on an upswing, until the party when everyone notices that Derek isn’t there, and Duncan is disgusting. The episode ends with Derek in tears, and Ryan, after having trashed Derek to Austin earlier, decides to trash Austin to Derek. Pick a side or don’t get involved, Lady.
In other news, Reichen invites TJ to go to Hawaii with him, Mike works out, Rodiney interviews about how awesome he is, and Nyasha sings in awful pants and bad wig. Here’s a sample lyric from one of her songs: eeny-meeny-miny-mo, welcome to the Nyasha show. And that’s all I have to say about that.
