I never thought it would come to this but, I actually MISS Clare and Jono. What am I doing with my life?
The episode opens with a sort of ‘Where are they now?’ type thing in which the two are still single and Clare says “hopefully I’ll find love …worst case scenario I’ll foster 80 foster dogs.” I hear that, sister!
After the clusterfuck of last episode, this one was far tamer although there was a LOT of crying (which made my inner drama queen VERY happy). With the couples now together for three weeks, they’re basically old hands at this whole ‘relationship’ thing so it’s time for the final stage. It’s time to meet the parents.
But first, let’s watch as the couples’ relationships dissolve further.
After feeling very smug about their relationship compared to the train wreck that was Jono and Clare, Christie and Mark begin their 7 hour trek back from the dinner. As each second passes on their road trip on the Highway to Hell (I mean, Mark’s farm. I’m sure it’s very nice), Christie does a horror movie transformation, possessed by an oily haired, cranky demon! And she unleashes the beast!
“Look at us now. Do we look like we’re enjoying each other’s company?” Errr, this is one of those rhetorical questions, isn’t it Christie? “I’m fucking fuming.”
Yea, I thought it probably was.
It’s not looking too good for the two as they stomp off to bed and Mark leaves on a sour note: “Yea, this is definitely gonna break us. 100%.” Jesus Mark, spoilers much?
Simone and Xavier aren’t up to much: no surprises there really. Simone is still bummed out that every day of their relationship isn’t just as electric as their honeymoon, because that’s realistic. In the real world, where the two have jobs and have the capacity to get tired, it seems that all Xavier wants to do it chill out and watch some soccer, aye.
Unfortunately, just as many men have had to compete with the anime I watch, if you’re going to date a sporty person be prepared to deal with their sport watching obsession. This doesn’t fly with Simone, and I will admit it would be pretty shitty to make someone dinner only for them to ignore you for the soccer, but Simone decides and ultimatum is in order: it’s her or the soccer. Xavier chooses the soccer.
Following dinner, Simone broaches a hot button issue once again: romance. Simone wants to go out this weekend, but you can’t tie a man like Xavier down! “I just need a couple of hours during the weekend to catch up on things I can’t do during the week.” He’s literally been ignoring her the whole week.
This isn’t the first time dating, or the lack of
