Today was my first day back at work after going to Las Vegas after the weekend. Let’s just say my hangover was extensive, as I got back on Monday morning, but I think I was still hungover today. Anyways, today when I was at work I nearly dozed off, and I was really nervous that my recap would be terrible since I was so exhausted. If last week’s episode was on this week, my recap would have consisted of “BORING” in giant font, and maybe a picture or two and that’s it. Luckily though, we got a fair amount of action including one big crazy breakdown. Keep reading to find out just how crazy it turned out to be…
First off this week we see everyone back at Outward Bound. Are you kidding me MTV? I thought we left all of this boring shit last week!
Actually, the show starts off with Brooke squealing, and it’s coming from Davis’s bed. She appears to have crawled into bed with him while she was only wearing a towel. Davis meanwhile, is clothed. Brooke tells us that she loves Davis because he’s such a genuinely nice person. Apparently she’s forgotten the problems she’s had in the past with him, and also the fact that he talks behind everyone’s back in the house. Aside from those two things, I’m still not sure he’s a genuinely nice person. Brooke goes on to say that he passes her boyfriend test, so she’s obviously in love with him now. That’s healthy.
Throughout the moaning session Brooke was having, while naked, in bed with Davis, Tyrie was sitting at the computer nearby. Eventually curiosity got the best of him and he had to look and see what was going on. Brooke asks Tyrie where his friends are, and then we see Stephen in his bed looking like a 12-year old boy who’s just seen a boob for the first time. Actually, it was kind of close to how Stephen looked when he saw Darnell making out with Jenn. Then Davis and Brooke had sex with Stephen and Tyrie watching and everybody became just a little bit closer.
Post-coitus we see Davis and Jenn walking to Spill. Davis was telling Jenn about how he hasn’t really bonded with anybody in the house, and he names everyone in the house except for Brooke. So I would probably count that as a bond with someone in the house. Then he says that he could be closer with Tyrie but he doesn’t think Tyrie can look past Davis being gay, which I think is kind of a low blow itself. Maybe it has nothing to do with being gay and Ty can’t look past an n-bomb being dropped. Anyways, Davis tells us he’d rather have a guy friend that he can bond with, and I know how that goes. He wants someone to do guy things with, and I was just thinking that the last time I went shoe shopping with a group of girls. Wait, what does that say about me?
Davis tells Jenn that it’s awesome that her and Colie are best friends in the house, and Jenn says she thinks Colie is a very cute girl. Hold on there sister. Let Davis set you straight. Davis doesn’t think she’s that pretty, and he tells Jenn this, not realizing that Jenn is going to go directly to Colie and relate the story but make it sound a lot worse.
Yeah, and I think you’re a little fat
But, oh, Davis isn’t done. He goes on to say that he doesn’t think Brooke is that pretty either, and then he mentions something about Brooke having two chins. At least he’s not poking fun at something she can’t control though, because that would be mean. Wait a second…
And Brooke has a stupid dangling double chin. . .
And have you ever noticed Colies stupid teeth?
And then there’s that stupid guy up there. . .
Well, not wanting to be left out, Jenn asks Davis what she needs to do. Davis says what we’re all thinking, and that it’s that she needs to get a truck-load of self-respect. And maybe lay off the makeup. Actually, he says she should lose some weight, but she’s got nice boobs, pretty hair and a pretty face. Actually, it’s probably good he didn’t go into personality with any of these girls, because that would have just caused huge problems. However, with just a little constructive criticism, this whole thing should just blow over, right?
Back at the house, Jenn tells Brooke, “Davis told me I’m fat. At least he left out the part about me being kind of easy though. And kind of an alcoholic.” Jenn kind of skips past what he said about Colie and Brooke and kept the focus on her. I’m not sure that Jenn is being nice and trying to keep them from knowing what Davis said, or if she wants the focus on her. For simplicity’s sake I’ll just go with her wanting the attention. Brooke tells Jenn to not ever have a conversation like that again, and she goes on to say that she doesn’t want to know what Davis said about her. She reasons this by saying that she already knows Davis thinks she has “acne and whatever.” Yikes. “Whatever” sounds pretty general Brooke, you should let Davis narrow it down for you.
Well, Brooke says she’s trying not to think about it because it makes her really mad. Then she tells us, referring to Davis, “Who do you think you are that gives you the right to break down people in a physical, superficial way?” She answered her own question though when she reminded herself that he’s just a genuinely nice person.
Not satisfied with just telling Brooke the story, Jenn goes to tell her best friend what Davis said, a glass of wine. Ok, she told her second best friend in the house, Colie. Now Jenn just told Colie that Davis only said something about Jenn. I think she was right to say that though. We should all just maintain focus on Jenn for as long as possible. It’s best for everyone. Well, Jenn didn’t want to tell Colie what Davis said about her, so she called him in. He didn’t feel like getting up, so Colie asked if Davis said anything about her, and he outright lied. Well, either Jenn told Colie or Colie just assumed she knew what Davis would say because she whispered to Jenn, “What, he thinks I’m ugly and I don’t have an ass?” Colie didn’t really seem to care what Davis said about her. If he had said anything about Alex bringing another girl home though, Davis would have had his eyes clawed out.
Back at the house, Colie proves Davis right
Then we see Tyrie walking outside to the gate and Jazalle is there. He doesn’t really look too happy to see her, but she says she was just passing by and she misses him. She says she misses him “sooo much” (according to the caption there were 4 o’s in that so), and Tyrie just responds exasperatedly. That’s a pleasant response when someone tells you they miss you. Tyrie gets kind of pissy with Jazalle, then he hugs her and tells her to get out of his face. Well, technically, after he hugs her, he hurries back inside, but if it were me I would have told her to get out of my face.
You know your relationship is in great shape when you are forced to talk through a fence
The next day he calls her and she’s acting pretty needy. Maybe it’s justified, since he’s been gone for a week or whatever, but it’s needy nonetheless. It seems like Tyrie is just getting angry at her whenever she questions his feelings. She asks him what he wants to do, and he says he’s sick of her bullshit. He tells her that the long-term reason he was in detox was her, but he says he’s not blaming her. You know, because it wasn’t his fault that he wouldn’t stop yelling, and cornered her in the bathroom, and then yanked her arm, and then pissed outside of the apartment. It was hers. Hers and society’s. Not his. Then he says that Jazalle was the reason people were calling the cops. I do remember Stephen saying the cops were concerned about how Jazalle looked, but then Tyrie says people told him that she was talking about Ty hitting on her. Then he backpedals, and he says that HE never said she did that. He was just implying it. Let’s not get confused. After that, Jazalle gets pissed off and starts yelling at Ty, and he says he’ll talk to her tomorrow and hangs up. Then he walks up the stairs muttering to himself.
Now we get to meet Brooke’s parents! Her parents have come in from Tennessee to see her. She takes them back to the house to look around, and on the walk her dad asks who Brooke is sleeping with now. Apparently they have a close relationship. Or her dad thinks Brooke is a slut. Brooke explained that she wasn’t sleeping with Davis any more because he’s been talking really bad about her and that he finds her to be really unattractive and he said specific things about her appearance that are hurtful enough that the girls won’t tell her. Let’s all just keep in mind that Brooke actually has no idea what Davis really said and she asked Jenn not to tell her. She’s just pissed off about what she thought he said, and now her parents will hate him. Also, if I can go back for a second, he probably just said something about Brooke to make what he said about Colie sound better to Colie’s friend. Oh well, if everyone reacted maturely here, you probably wouldn’t be reading this, so I’m not going to overanalyze (any more).
Well, back at the house, guess who the parents run into. It’s Davis! He greets the parents and then he says that Brooke looks nice like he’s got a 6th sense for being in deep shit. MTV then shows a shot of Brooke’s dad just staring Davis down. Aren’t Brooke’s parents both psychologists or something? Davis, welcome to your psychoanalysis.
Davis, this is Awkward. Awkward, this is Davis.
Either Brookes dad is completely judging Davis right now,
or he’s mentally cruised to page 128 of the Kama Sutra. . . Hellooooo Daughters Roommate!
At lunch, Brooke is talking with her parents about Davis and their situation now. Her parents actually sound pretty reasonable, and when she’s talking with them, so does Brooke. She says she’ll confront him, but she tells us that she’s not really looking forward to it. Then Brooke tells her parents the reason Davis acts like that is because he feels so alienated for being gay. I’m sure that Brooke will remain very calm and understanding in their conversation, much like Tyrie and Stephen were last week.
That night, Alex, Stephen and Davis are out somewhere and Alex tells Davis that the girls are pissed about what he said to Jenn. This was the first Stephen had heard of it, and he seems to love it. Well, he makes a really loud noise, so I assume he enjoyed it or something. Something tells me that Davis didn’t really care that the girls were pissed though. I’m basically just going off of him rolling his eyes a lot and saying “I don’t care” though, so I could be wrong.
The next day Tyrie goes for a little run, probably to clear his mind. He says he’s sick of arguing and he’s sick of detox. More sick of arguing though. He did get that sweet sandwich in detox. But anyways, he calls Jazalle and says he wants to chill out. At first she doesn’t want to keep in touch, but then she eventually gives in to him. That was pretty boring you two. GODDAMNSHIT!
After getting off the phone, Ty walks upstairs and into the confessional. He tells us he cares about Jazalle, but she’s added stress. “However, in the sacrification (possible buzzword of trying to sound smart, because it’s definitely not a word) of my heart and emotions, I’m gonna be back out there fucking.” I had to pause for laughing, but about two minutes later I was cool to continue watching. He pulls out a card that’s a representation of his player card, and he says Dark Kent has been released from his bottle. Watch out ladies.
That night we see the guys out at some bar, and Davis, Stephen and Alex all put their arm on the other’s shoulder and dance, while Ty dances nearby by himself. Something about three dudes dancing like that doesn’t necessarily say “check us out ladies,” regardless of any of the dudes being gay or not.
Then they all boned Jenn
Glossy Face. Empty Glass.
Yep, this looks like a great time to talk. Nothing can possibly go wrong.
Brooke shows up, and Davis is looking pretty drunk. What better time for a confrontation to clear up a misunderstanding than at a bar when at least one of you is drunk? (The answer is there is no better time.) So Brooke asks a super loaded question that is not even close to what Davis said (something about breaking down how ugly everyone is) and Davis tells Brooke exactly what he said, and then he says that he likes Brooke but doesn’t think she’s the most beautiful girl in the world. Well that went well. For a second I was worried Brooke would actually flip out for a second, but I’m glad she’s more sensible than that.
Dude, you probably shouldnt actually physically grab her extra chin skin. . .
. . . I’m just sayin’
Im gonna go out on a limb and say that was a bad thing.
Obviously I’m lying. Brooke it PIIIIIIIISSSSSSED. She takes off for home and is crying. It looks like she walks in the door, then goes to the bathroom, shuts the door and begins crying. Well, it was like part crying, part exorcism with all of the screaming going on in there. And it was mostly gibberish screaming.
After the commercial break we see Brooke writing what appears to be a letter, but she is too angry/drunk for it to go well. She rips the piece of paper, yells, then crumples it up. Probably a good thing she chose to write the letter than use a typewriter, because that would have taken much longer, and her rage may have transferred to the typewriter. Anyways, she kicks something, screams to herself (this was shown on cameras placed around the house, so maybe the camera crew took off or feared for their life when she was in the bathroom), then walks into Davis’s room. She puts the letter on Davis’s bed, then takes his blankets off, yells at them, then breaks a lamp and storms out. Then we see the letters on the bed. Large, angry, drunk letters make up words that MTV translates from Crazy Drunk Brooke into English for us.
BLABBERTY FLABBERTY CRAZILY DOO!!
Colie was the first one home and she discovered Brooke lying on the floor of something resembling a closet and crying. Brooke explains the situation to Colie, and while doing so makes one of the most evil faces I have ever seen. She also said she would kill Davis with her bare hands if she could. Because he said she has a double chin? Note to self: avoid talking to Brooke altogether because she may try to kill me if I say anything less than extremely complimentary.
Brooke then complains to Colie that she can’t believe “this” keeps happening to her. Maybe she’s just a terrible judge of character.
Hey Alex, I just feel compelled to tell you. . . your elbows are puffy
and you have one nostril larger than the next.
Davis talks shit behind everyone’s back in the house, and she’s closest to him (not to mention in love with him) so shouldn’t she realize this? Also, she just said earlier that he’s a “genuinely nice person.” I wonder if she’ll still feel the same way when she’s choking him and his life is slowly draining out of him.
Stupid water, it’s all wet and stuff. . .
The next morning Davis tells us he feels bad about what he said, and he says he did it just to make Brooke mad. Because he’s genuinely nice, he shits on the closest friend in the house. He’s picking up his room and he sees a piece of paper on the floor, so he picks it up and read it. “Did Brooke draw me a picture of drunk squiggles and circles? That’s nice, I guess.” He actually tells us that he’s disappointed that Brooke handled the situation by leaving him a note in the morning. Apparently someone was too drunk to realize the notes were in his bed last night.
Hey Jenn, come here and check this out. . . Brookes handwriting is so fat!
At least she still has love.
Later Alex and Davis are talking and they say that Brooke is really immature. Davis says she’s too immature to make amends, but he says that he’s not going to broach the subject until she brings it up. Then he goes upstairs to talk to Brooke.
He apologizes, and then she asks if all he said was about the double chin thing. Hmm, Brooke, think maybe you overreacted just a touch? Davis repeated what he said, almost verbatim. Brooke tells Davis that whenever something like this happens, it brings back her past (*cough*baggage*cough*). She says she’s sensitive to having her trust betrayed. Doesn’t betrayal involve some sort of lie? And didn’t Davis tell her exactly what he said? Also, hasn’t she done pretty much the same thing when P.J. was around?
Anyways, Davis asks if he acts like he doesn’t like Brooke, and he basically calls Brooke out for questioning his friendship. I call my friends ugly all the time and I still like them. Sure I repeat it to their face whenever I see them, and call them nicknames like Ugly and Ugly 2, but we’re still friends. So Brooke basically realizes how much she overreacted, at least hopefully. Then we hear this exchange:
Davis: “I’m sorry I put you through that.”
Brooke: “All right.”
And that was the end of the fight, and the episode. Basically since it’s been like 4 weeks since Brooke’s been in an episode, she just needed a little chance to let her crazy out. The crazy pills she takes can build up to an exorcist-sounding explosion if you don’t let it out often enough.
So what do you think? Did Davis really betray Brooke, or did he just make a comment that he should have kept to himself? Is Brooke a cold-blooded killer? Will Tyrie give Big head a call?
Don’t forget to watch Madeyoulaugh on the after-show this week. I heard there was nudity…but I could be mistaken.
