As last week’s episode of Hulu’s Four Weddings and a Funeral opened, we learned that Maya and Duffy had indeed spent the night together, and neither seemed to regret it. Maya was happy to finally be with a good guy who wasn’t hiding any dark secrets, and Duffy, well, he had been dreaming of this for a decade, and so they decided to pursue a relationship. Meanwhile, Love Chalet had become a phenomenon, and everyone was glued to their TV sets to follow the crazy drama, and see what Zara was up to. Craig was surprisingly enjoying himself, especially when the first guy that Zara fell for turned out to be gay. However, his attitude changed when Zara started making out with dimwitted but hunky housemate Garrett. That is, until he noticed Zara scratching her head while looking at the camera—this was the sign she would make to Craig when she wanted to be rescued from a bad situation—Craig was convinced that Zara was sending him a signal. So he organized a watch party with his friends in order to get a second opinion, but when Ainsley unexpectedly showed up and saw Kash there, the party came to an abrupt end. She was livid at Craig’s betrayal—that he still friends with Kash—and stormed off. Craig was still convinced that Zara still liked him and was calling out for him, so he managed to get himself on the show, where he, dressed only in a Speedo, proposed to Zara, but was unfortunately rejected.
Ainsley was still having money issues, so when a rich woman showed up saying she was going through a divorce and wanted to spend all her husband’s money before it was finalized, Ainsley jumped at the opportunity. However, it turned out that wife was the one cheating, and her husband Bryce (guest Dermot Mulroney) was the good guy, and he asked Ainsley not to cash the check. There seemed to be some sparks between the two…could he be a potential new mate for Ainsley? Meanwhile, Gemma’s son finally made some new friends and wanted to attend a sleepover at school, which left her alone for the first time. Fortunately, the gang was going to a bar to help Craig drown his sorrows, and Duffy had invited Gemma to join them. Kash showed up with Basheer since Fatima wasn’t interested in going to this unchaperoned event. There were some definite sparks between Kash and Maya as their eyes met. And later, after a fight broke out in the bar, and Kash ended up at the hospital, he admitted to Maya that he still thinks about the day they first met.
As last week’s episode came to a close, Craig was watching the season finale of Love Chalet, where Zara received another marriage proposal…from Garrett. However, before Craig could hear her give her response, there was a knock on his door—it was Zara! She scratched her head, making sure that Craig could see her ring-less finger. Craig was right, she WAS giving him a signal!
I am really enjoying this series. The Love Chalet stuff in last week’s episode was so ridiculously over the top and hilarious, but not so far off from what happens on these reality dating shows. It’s also been a lot of fun trying to figure out who’s going to end up with whom, and fill out the rest of the show’s weddings. After last week’s episode, it looks like Craig and Zara are going to get back together—could this be our second wedding?! While Craig may have fixed one relationship, he still has some fence-mending to do with Ainsley, and it doesn’t look like that’s going to be a quick fix. Will she ever forgive Craig? And will she ever talk to Kash again, because it looks like he’ll be around the group for a while. He and Maya definitely still have feelings for one another, but both are currently in a new relationship. Will either of them make the next move before it’s too late? If Maya does break things off with Duffy, it looks like Duffy and Gemma could make a good pairing. Last week, they had a connection in the car ride back to the apartment, and it seemed like Gemma was referring to herself when she told Duffy he could do better than Maya. Duffy is also very similar to her kind, caring deceased husband, and gets along great with kids her son’s age—he even teaches at her son’s school. Could these three couples be the brides and grooms for the remaining weddings? Or will Ainsley get another shot at love (perhaps with Bryce?), or will some unforseen twists in the second half of the season shake things up? Only 5 episodes and 3 weddings still remain…
In tonight’s episode, “Lights, Camera, Wedding”, Ainsley doubles down on her fight with Craig; Duffy stumbles upon a secret love letter that gives him hope; and Kash considers taking the next step with Fatima.
Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Match Game, Big Brother, MasterChef, BH90210, Bulletproof, Hypnotize Me, South Side, Krypton, and Younger.
