Episode 2 was a couple of days ago, sorry about the delay, but, work and shit.
Soooooooooo…..Darcy and Jesse. He seems like a really nice, genuine guy. If it’s all for real, she is a very lucky woman. His friends are snarky as hell and I want to hang out with them. He cleared out half of his closet for her!
She got her Louboutin’s stuck in the escalator at the airport and destroyed one of them. He showed up with a sash and flowers. He was clearly very happy to see her. It was surreal and nice at the same time.
Paul, the weird guy with multiple felonies, makes it to Brazil. Before boarding the boat, he gets searched by Brazilian police. TLC tries to do a cliff hanger of the drug dog alerting on one of his 8 bags, but they would have turned it into an episode of “Locked Up Abroad” instead, so I know it’s nothing bad. While I’m hoping it’s one of his mosquito net onsies, it’s his OTC cough drops and they let him keep ’em. *YAWN*. Because that flop of a cliff hanger, TLC leaves us with Paul at the dock, with little cellular service, waiting for Karine for over 45 minutes.
And the bestestest couple of this episode goes to Sean and Abby. Before he arrives, Abby is hanging with her girlfriends talking about Sean and Chris. Chris is this creepy old guy, even creepier than Sean, who is her “friend”. Sean is seriously worried about this relationship and wants to meet Chris before moving forward with Abby. Abby is telling her friends that she wants to keep Chris as a friend. One of them asks why. Abby responds that “he teaches her things”. The friend is side-eyeing and rolling so hard, I can hear it through the TV. Once Sean unloads all of those panties, he heads out of the airport to finally meet Abby. BTW, THIS IS HAITI. Sean is wearing a baby blue cardigan over a plaid shirt. The average daily tempurate in Haiti is between 70-80, and he’s wearing a sweater. He’s also shocked by the poverty. Way to do some research! Abby brought a friend with her to the airport. Sean walks up, hugs her, and immediately tells Abby he loves her in Haitian Creole. After a significant pause, Abby says she loves him too. They get into a car and drive off. I’m not completely sure where the friend wandered off to, but haven’t seen her anywhere since Sean walked up. Probably left her on the floor laughing her ass off, for reelz. At some point the producers take Abby aside for an interview about Sean. She’s talking and says (this is a direct quote) “I can’t wait to start my relationship with Chris”. The producer says “it’s Sean”. Abby is totally busted, looks guilty, and finally decides she had better cry. GOLD! TLC has struck gold, I tell you!!! I’ve looked for a clip of it, but can’t find it.
If you haven’t watched it, watch it just for the clip of Abby getting his name wrong….
