Out to dinner in town, Swift confirms with Captain Needy his suspicions that Ginger’s facial wounds are self-inflicted. The only other person there is Latoya, who is surprised and dismayed to find out. Captain Needy decides, with encouragement from the others, that the guys should sit Ginger down for a low-key intervention.
Back at the house, Captain Needy immediately pulls Grandpa aside to discuss the situation, and Swift joins the conversation shortly after. For some reason, the three guys having a conversation without Ginger makes Mo’Rum immediately suspicious, so she brings her concerns to Ginger, who guesses they’re talking about him. I guess they must have been acting super sketchy, giggling and throwing glances at Ginger and performing various other middle school girl behaviors.
Grandpa claims not to have known the extent of it, despite his lengthy conversation of EPICALLY hypocritical proportions just the night before. Anyway, they agree to “see what happens.” Way to commit to this, guys!
Almost immediately after the guys scatter, Ginger sits Captain Needy down and asks what’s going on. Needy says they want to sit down and have a guy conversation, which Ginger first thinks is about his drinking. After that thought is quickly shut down, he knows it’s about him hurting himself. Ginger decides that it’s going to go down right now, and instructs Captain Needy to get the others. Never in the history of EVERDOM has the subject of an intervention had so much power over it.
Apparently they literally dragged Grandpa out mid-shower. He’s doing this in a towel. Seriously, he’s a guy right? How long does it take to finish showering and throw on shorts and a tshirt? Captain Needy says Ginger drinks every day, which is fine (way to come down tough and strong on that one), but he’s been a downer about it lately. They say he lets Mo’Rum get to him, and then he fucks himself up. Apparently Ginger disagrees with the notion that he fucks himself up, because burning and punching yourself is totally cool.
Swift says they’re worried about it progressing, but it can’t even stay at it’s current level. Ginger counters that he’s not an alcoholic, he just drinks too much.
He claims that he can control it and asks the guys to give him a shot to correct the behavior himself before taking it to the next step. They guys, relieved that they’ve tried and are off the hook for now, agree. Ginger tells us he’ll work on not hurting himself, but he’s still going to drink and hang out with Mo’Rum.
Mo’Rum complains to Latoya that Ginger lets other people tell him what he’s doing wrong. Apparently beating himself up is okay in Mo’Rum’s eyes, but letting concerned friends talk to you about it is “cowardly” and “unattractive” to her. I’ve been mostly enjoying her this season, but this is where she started to lose me. Latoya, ever the diplomat, points out that the guys have good intentions.
