Mel says that at first she thought the shared RV was the worst idea ever, but it ended up being the best thing for them. Midge is happy, so she’s happy. Kat, in all her innocence and nothing more, asks Mel if she thinks Ter is being authentically nice. Mel says she does, and she’s going with it and that’s that.
Well, hopefully Kat’s got something up her sleeve to put a stop to all this darn Gorga family togetherness. And if there’s cannolis involved, all the better.
And if she doesn’t it’s okay cause Caroline’s on the case. Back at the camp, she’s grilling Jacquee on the state of things with Ter. Over in Ter’s RV, her brother’s doing the same thing. ”Two days, I cried,” she declares to Midge, “Ask Joe.” Brown Smurf, for his part, smirks and tries to sit upright on the couch.
Neither Ter nor Jacquee knows how they feel or knows how to fix it and they both just keep making the same old arguments. Midge says it’s hard to be Ter’s friend because she can’t admit she’s wrong. Well, true, but I’ve already landed on Ter’s side of this argument. Jacquee’s a useless busybody.
So after dinner, Ter drags Jacquee away from the campfire to talk in the RV. She tells Jacquee that she’s having fun on the trip, but where do they go from here? Ter says that she was hurt, and Jacquee quickly counters that she was too.
It’s all about THE AMBUSH, and Jacquee still carrying on about how worried she is about Teresa because Star Magazine told her to be. Ter keeps telling her she’s not going to jail and if she was, she probably would have mentioned it at some point. Jacquee says Ter wants them to be friends who just don’t ask questions, and Ter tries to explain to her that there’s a differences between being concerned and prying.
Sensing this argument going nowhere, Jacquee veers back to the days when Ter was trying to get her to hate Melissa. ”But you didn’t, did you?” squawks Ter in reply. Not really sure how this makes sense in any context but it sort of sounds right, I guess.
Outside, the group around the campfire is pretend-nervous. Come on people, you as good as sent them into the discount den to fight over a 75% off rhinestone belt. Fireworks are what we’re all hoping for here, let’s be honest.
Caroline sums it up for us in a dramatic soliloquy.
A Short Poem Explaining Things
By Caroline Manzo
And yet another Manzo success! It’s almost not fair!
Back in the trailer, Jacquee and Ter are still deciding where to go from here. Somehow, the conversation has come around to whether or not Teresa is fake. Ter of course insists she isn’t.
Then Jacquee says that maybe they should just be acquaintances, then she starts sobbing uncontrollably, then she thinks they should go their separate ways and oh, it’s just so confusing for poor Jacquee’s four lonely brain cells.
Ter informs Jacquee that at first she didn’t know if she could ever forgive her but, “you know me,” she chortles pleasantly. Yes, we do. Teresa Guidice, known worldwide and beyond for her kind forgiving nature. Oh, and for giving birth to the demon seed Milania, who I would not mind a cameo from at some point in California. It’s the RV trip from hell. Only fitting.
In the end, they sob, they hug and there’s a truce…for now. Jacquee says she’s just a forgiving person. Wait, who’s the forgiver here? And finally, it would not be forgiveness without Caro to interject that as sure as her name’s Caroline Manzo, Jacquee is destined to get hurt.
Next week, it’s drama at the vineyard and finally time see how the whole Brown Smurf “here comes by bitch wife” comment plays out. ’Til then…Kisses, CB
