As much as the deftly-written episode, by acclaimed producer-director Mike Listo, tugs at the heartstrings of steadfast fans, it speaks to anyone living with the scars of a broken and fractured family, which pretty much includes everyone.
That's because the theme of this episode was a visit from the friends and family of the final six women competing to win the love of Jersey Shore start Vinny. Well, five women, technically, because Akielia's mom was unable to make it until the next episode, which was sad for her, but good for us because it wouldn't be an episode of Double Shot at Love without watching somebody break down in tears.
One highlight of the friends and family visits was Danielle's father, a man at least two feet taller than Vinny who mercilessly mocked the Keto Guido, claiming Vinny did not meet the height requirements to ride his daughter. To counter, learning it was recently his birthday, Vinny gifted Danielle's dad with a birthday cake and the Happy Birthday song, which did appear to soften him up a little bit. It's a good trick, comrades. Whenever Putin comes to visit, I keep a freshly-baked chocolate cake in the kitchens just in case he shows up in a bad mood and thinks about having the KGB assassinate his old pal. No, Putin isn't usually cheered up by cake. But when he doesn't like the cake, I have my head chef tortured and executed, and that usually cheers Putin right up. Haw haw haw haw! That Putin! Such a card!
That leaves just five contestants, comrades, as this season seems like it barely started but is already nearing the end. Overall, the episode was fun. It's always nice to see Vinny squirm, and the Peyton stuff tickled my drama bone. Until next time, my friends: socialism or death!
But when it came time to make their final decision, SK said, \"I do not.\" He said that it was not the right time to get married, given that Raven is reluctant about him going to California for two years to get a degree. He was not flexible with Raven's family situation as no one from her family had attended the ceremony. He did not want to face any shortcomings in his married life in the future.
She was also advised to stay humble and respectful in front of him, not displaying her own wealth even if she earned more. SK's mother was concerned about Raven's family not attending the unique Love is Blind wedding and had to explain to SK that her \"blood family\" could not come due to some personal circumstances.
SK and Raven also spoke about their fundamental differences and went on a boat ride date, where they planned their future together. SK wanted to provide for his family 5 years down the line and confessed that he loved Raven's ambitious nature, thoughtfulness, and patience.
Raven confessed that she has attracted a lot of non-emotional people in her past but now wants to live a \"happy and comfy\" life with SK. SK's family loved Raven for how hard-working she was and told SK that they had never seen him this happy.
[CECILIA NARRATION] Kristina Swan loves taking her family camping. She and her husband Peter have brought their son Parker to Pedernales Falls State Park for a weekend camping trip. Joining the Swans are their dear friends Katherine and Zach Morsbach (Moors-bock) and their two daughters Madeleine (Mada-lin) and Hannah.
[KRISTINA] Well, I like being outside and getting to experience all this with my family and our friends. It's just nice to get away and not have to worry about my phone ringing and errands and you know, daily life. There's a lot of work to it, but I do enjoy it, and we just have a good time.
Oh my goodness, Calgon take me away. There's no wonder with so much sitting at work that Kristina is passionate about making camping a priority. But it's also her desire to be serious about investing time with her family and friends outside of work and the home. In fact, she says the effort is intentional.
Kristina is referring to her son Parker. Along with her husband Peter, they've invited their friends and family camping companions, Zach and Katherine Morsbach and their daughters Madeleine and Hannah.
Kristina Swan and her family have joined their good friends, the Morsbach family, for a weekend camping trip to Pedernales Falls State Park. Producer Randall Maxwell joined them on their first of two nights in the park.
[KRISTINA] So I was a girl scout, and we camped a lot as a girl scout troop. But my family never camped like this growing up. I always wanted to but my parents were just not into it. When I got to be a grown-up and I got to decide for myself what I want to do, thankfully my husband likes camping, and he's got a lot more experience camping than I do, so we have that common interest and then we wanted that for our family.
Since the family rarely used the side of their home that housed the original living room (where the pool table was) and dining room, I decided that using a custom top for the pool table to convert it into a dining table was the way to go. I also decided that tucking the dining room/billiard room in the rear of the home opposite the kitchen was the layout that would work much better for this family. This way, when you walked into the home through the front door, the first thing you saw was a warm, inviting living space, not an awkwardly placed pool table.
We were able to adjust the height of the Palm Dining Chairs from my shop to the height of the converted dining table by simply adding a thick and comfy chair pad to each seat. As I mentioned earlier, Audrey had attempted to reno the fireplace in this room, but stopped when she saw what lay beyond the drywall. This became yet another unfinished project that the family had been living with and, boy, was it an eyesore.
Throughout the season, I think there was an underlying theme of who do you want to become This means looking back, but also looking ahead. The season started with Anne's sixteenth birthday, and it's ending as she graduates from school. She has gone on a journey to discover where she comes from, but she's also been working towards the future and made decisions in what she believes in, which have shaped the young adult she is becoming. There are parts of her that haven't changed - she's still prone to instances of impulsive action, but she's developing a sense of awareness and consequence, in part through the guidance of her mentors. And while the story has focused on Anne's journey, many of Anne's family, friends, and acquaintances have also undergone change as they've looked toward the future.
So Bash and Hazel have been on better terms since they lay out all of their feelings last episode, and it looks they feel they can move forward on the farm. But in what I felt was probably the one of the biggest shocks all episode, Elijah returns to the Blythe-Lacroix homestead. After reading Mary's letter, he's sobered up and quit bootlegging to run odd jobs, and he's bought back a medal that belonged to Gilbert's father. He's genuinely sorry and hoping for a chance to be near Delphine, the last of his family. Out of compassion for Mary, Elijah can pay his respects to his mother and stay in the barn for the night, but that's all a still angry Bash will allow. But in the morning, Elijah comes to help harvest the apples and Hazel asks that Bash maybe reconsider letting Elijah stay, especially since not so long ago, they were given the second chance that Elijah is hoping for now. Bash does have a condition though - Elijah needs to be involved in Delphine's life... well, okay, I cried a little on the inside seeing the tears on Elijah's face when he holds his baby sister for the first time.
And speaking of which, Diana passed in entrance exam to Queen's! But she's not at all prepared for how upset her parents are when she finally reveals the truth. Eliza and William upset with her deceitfulness and, according to them, selfishness. William blames Eliza for not raising Diana properly and tells Diana that she doesn't get to choose her future because the lack of a son in the family means that Diana's husband will need to take over the family's business. Diana is absolutely devastated, because it seems while her parents have loved her and said they were acting in her best interests, this is the first time she's been confronted with the idea that they seemingly don't care about her. What they've told her is that they only care about Diana's marriage. It's a bit unusual given their lack of interaction on a regular basis, but it's Marilla who winds up talking to Mrs. Barry after learning about what happened from Anne. Marilla doesn't argue or actively persuade Mrs. Barry, but rather gives a bit of perspective informed from her own experience with Anne. She had to step back and realize that her child was making a mature and informed request, and what was threatened to drive them apart was her own fear. It's enough to get Mrs. Barry thinking... I think maybe Marilla's words about not being included in Anne's life is what hit the mark on Eliza. Eliza was deeply unhappy with how her husband didn't include her with decision-making that affected their entire family (i.e. the gold scam by Nate and Mr. Dunlop), so it might have occurred to her that she and her husband keep pushing Diana in a direction they're currently going, Diana will stop including her mother, and that is what hurts Eliza the most. 59ce067264
