Out at a bar, Mo’Rum and Ginger obviously opt for $30 all-you-can-drink wristbands. At some point, the power goes out, and a girl says that one of Swift’s roommates told her he was gay. Naturally, he’s pissed, and this time he kind of has a point. It’s one thing for the roomies to make jokes with each other, but let’s not drag strangers into their stupid drama.
None of them will take credit for it, although Mo’Rum apparently wishes she did it. Swift repeats (for the umpteenth time) that every girl he gets “looks better than” Mo’Rum. Dude, Betty White looks better than Mo’Rum. Girl goes HARD. RomCom tries to push Swift away and yells at them to stop because they’re being annoying.
Oh, I’m sorry, are you annoyed, dear? What goes around comes around, etc.
Swift claims he doesn’t want to deal with “drama and pettiness.” Well, he certainly seems to have a knack for it! He whines to Ginger about Mo’Rum making his time miserable, and says Ginger is blinded by love. Ginger doesn’t want to get on the boat, but Mo’Rum and Latoya tell him not to be a bitch (like Swift). Mo’Rum actually tells him to “hit the kid already.” Oh, honey, you do not want that. He’d get sent home and you’d only have Latoya left to hang out with.
Back at the house, Ginger tries to sit down and talk to Swift, but Swift insists on waiting until Ginger is sober to talk. They go back and forth for a bit, before Ginger finally gives up. Somehow, Mo’Rum thinks this makes him look like a bitch, even though this is another one of those rare cases when Swift has a point. Naturally, Ginger is not happy to hear that he looks soft for not forcing a conversation with Swift that would have inevitably turned into a fight. Mo’Rum’s Staten Island attitude is coming out in spades (it’s always been there, but it’s intense this episode), and I’m liking her less and less.
The next morning, Swift decides that going to church will bring him some peace of mind, so he heads out to go do that. Excellent, now how do we get some freaking peace of mind after this clusterfuck of an episode?
Mo’Rum tells Ginger that when he gets mad, he should find something else to do instead of letting Swift talk him down, because it’s “not a good look.”
Speaking of “not a good look,” it’s Fat Betty Draper Plus Twenty Years!
Swift comes back from church a changed man. Captain Needy: “You went to church?” “Yeah.” “On purpose?!” HA! Sober Captain Needy is kind of awesome sometimes. Swift reads some scripture about being nice to enemies. What a wonderful sentiment. Anyway, time will tell if he is truly cured of picking stupid fights and not respecting women!
Swift leaves a note on Latoya’s bed and a slice of apple pie in her top dresser drawer. Needless to say, she’s suspicious of his motives, and he doesn’t help his case by grinning the whole time she’s accusing him of poisoning the pie. Apparently he went so far as to say “Muahahahaha” in his note. Latoya says an apology would have been a less suspicious gesture, but he doesn’t offer one of those. They’re both smiling though, so maybe things are on the mend between them.
