So we are running behind since we went on a fabulous vacation to the Caribbean. Honestly, I didn’t miss watching the show from 8/11 and now that we’ve sat here and watched it, I know why. Though, the editing is getting better and we did chuckle through some bits, it was still a little yawn worthy.
The episode mainly travels around Trinity and Jon and their 2 year engagement. She is upset because Jon keeps asking her when they are going to get more involved with plans to get married and she is utterly frustrated that he keeps bringing it up. Not to mention he gets pissed because she isn’t wearing her ring. Though I understand why with the WWE asking her to play a ‘single’ role, it makes sense for her not to wear it and with him in the WWE you would think he would further understand, but alas, it boils down to Caveman status and is upset that she isn’t wearing her engagement ring. (Kevin’s Edit: You ladies remember everything. You’re telling me a woman can’t remember to put her ring back on? Please.) After a big fight and a WWE Raw in KS where they end in the ring together, it comes to head and she realizes she is being hard on Jon for her past failing relationships. He in turns says, ‘why get a hamburger when you can get a steak every night’. Classy!
Brie and Daniel are moving to Phoenix so she can be closer to her dog. Huh? So much traveling, she leaves the dog in Phoenix with her mom and now instead of moving to Washington to live in Daniel’s home from when he was growing up, they pack for Phoenix. Absolutely ridiculous when they Skype with the dog. Good gravy! (KE: I feel the need to make a Whale’s Vagina reference since they live in San Diego.)
Brie has to tell Nikki who ends up being not happy about the move and brings over “A” box to help them move. Who seriously brings just 1 box, it’s like Jennifer Gray saying to Patrick Swayze “I carried a watermelon”. After bashing them for moving for a dog ‘to each his own’ Brie kicks her out. Nikki does blame Daniel for the move, though not sure why. (KE: It was complete coincidence that we both made Patrick Swayze references.)
Nikki ends up having a conversation with John about the move and after discussing her ‘skin malfunction’ aka ‘planet’ aka a zit for us common people, we hear John’s sensitive side and how Nikki is a bitch and she needs to understand her sister’s move and to let bygones be bygones. Looks like John has been reading the Tao of Pooh! Man, he was deep. We actually enjoyed him in his scene and he gave kudos to Daniel Bryan for being a hard worker. I may actually like him at this point, but I’m sure that will change quickly. (KE: Cena is killing me in this series. The nipple rubbing cracked me up.)
Eva Marie thankfully isn’t really in the episode and it’s JoJo that has a visitor this time. The love of her life Brandon appears. I laughed when she said he is the love of her life and has known him since they were 5. Um, hello, you’re 19. Brandon doesn’t understand the work she is doing and wants her to go home. JoJo does end up getting a slight concussion on this episode, but Nattie tells her that it’s Brandon or the WWE. JoJo ends up choosing the WWE and Brandon get’s his walking papers. (KE: Stupid high school kids. Glad she made the right decision.)
45 minutes later, the episode wasn’t to bad, no Fandango kissing his own hand, no MTV Cribs, just more inside the life, yet scripted Total Diva episode. They still have my attention and am interested enough to see Ariana get fake boobs, so stay tuned to see how the fake boobs float! – M (& Kevin)
