Season 6, Episode 4
Awkward Silence Count: IIIIIIIIIII
Sorry if you were a bit lost without this last week, but I refuse to watch MIC when on holiday so man up and watch it for yourself lazy.
Firstly, EVERYONE HAS DOGS. Secondly, it’s Binky’s dog’s birthday and they’re throwing him a party in the form of a obstacle course. That’s right. A birthday party for a dog. Including presents. Ahh posh people.
Stevie and Tiff are on a date that involves aprons, though we later find out is all about making pizza, which I feel really doesn’t need an apron, unless you’re below the age of 5. Andy think he’ll friendzone her, and, let’s be honest, he probably will.
The boys have decided to go camping, so, feeling that the girls couldn’t possibly survive in Chelsea all on their own, Rosie organises a spa trip with people who hate each other because she ‘thinks it will be good for them’ and according to Louise ‘it can’t get worse’. I bet it can Louise. I bet it can.
Spencer doesn’t fancy the camping trip, but instead rants about Jamie to Proudlock, about him ‘stealing’ his ex girlfriend, while conveniently forgetting about that time that he stole Jamie’s ACTUAL girlfriend, Louise. Nice one Spencer.
Speaking of ex-stealing, Phoebe confronts Fran about all the Alex drama and calls it the ‘ultimate betrayal’ even though Fran is apologising to her. But what can make this conversation even more angry? Lucy. Oh and there she is, leaving Phoebe to flounce off with the amazingly childish burn ‘Jamie says hi. He just text me.’
Phoebe forces Louise to go gatecrash the boys camping trip and Andy’s pissed. And who would blame him really? Having your ex girlfriend turn up on your boys-only camping trip must be pretty rubbish. Jamie however, it’s pretty damn excited, gets kinda drunk and tells Phoebe he wants to put all his eggs in her basket (yes he actually said that), even the eggs that were in Lucy’s basket.
Lucy finds out and cries. Again, another consequence of dating Spencer Matthews.
This week’s end of episode party is Andy’s gig – he’s adorable. Jamie decides he’s going to decide on Phoebe as his current girl obsession, who unfortunately has gone off on holiday with a different guy. Andy continues to put on a very strange accent as he sings and Louise is having wayyyy too much fun despite the fact that he purposefully didn’t invite her.
Spencer shouts at Jamie for sleeping with Lucy and that strange MIC phenomenon happens again. You know the one when you’re having an argument with someone, apologise to them and say you’ll do exactly what they want and it just makes them more angry. And in a spectacular ending, Spencer throws a drink at him, which only hits his shoulder. Embarrassing.
What have we learnt this week?
1) You must always throw your dog a birthday party
2) Camping ‘in the wilderness’ involves ready built, brick firepits
3) If someone is playing really depressing music, just sway really heavily
