    Not only that, but she's usually sending it up 2 at a time, so it's not like everything is plated at once and maybe has to wait a longer minute to go up.  And I'm tired of her complaining about that stove.  I haven't heard any other chef on that boat complain about the stove that I can remember at all, much less every single charter.

    Also if there is an issue with the stove, why is she not asking, IDK, the captain for help or one of the engineers on board to take a look between charters (or hell, in the middle of one)? I know it's likely amped up for drama's sake, but as a viewer it's annoying AF.

  • Dear Colin -- June is not going to fall for you because you've done this.  Stop being a martyr.  Ugh, I'm so irritated with him about this and she's not a great worker.  I hope Captain Sandy is like, Sorry, no take-backsies and nope to this resignation you silly man.

    I'm really glad that Anastasia took Travis to task.  I gasped when he slapped her, it was not a "love-tap" and it was way more than "heavy handed."  It was 100% not okay and I don't give one care about who was on the receiving end of that, it's not okay.  Maybe he'll get a damn grip now.

    Still annoyed with Aesha and Jack.  At least Jack has some motivation to work now.

    I hope Travis sees how horrible he looks on this show when he drinks and makes some life changes 

    Colin and June aren’t even an apples to apples swap. They would be screwed losing someone with deck experience and move in someone with no deck experience.

    That was no way a love tap. Alcohol made him unable to full understand what he was doing but that is zero excuse. 

    There was an opening clip where June mentions she had deck experience. I think Colin is just homesick/sick of the crew, but also felt obligated to stay because he’s needed. Now he has an out.

  • I totally think Colin leaving and June moving to his spot is the storyline.

    Travis was drunk and missed the mark on a: how hard he was 'tapping' her and b: how him putting his hands on Anastasia would be received.  His brain probably blurred the lines of how 'close' of friends they are and what would be acceptable to her.  My husband smacking my ass playfully is fine, anyone else doing it is inappropriate.  

    I don't understand the amount of 'love' Joao is getting for 'changing'.  His behavior toward Aesha shows that he's not changed that much.  He's just clamped down on his worse impulses.  I'm not applauding him for confronting Travis immediately after he 'tapped'/slapped Anastasia, because it was the proper reaction.  Horrified is the correct way to feel about it.

    I actually gasped when Travis hit Anastasia. I hope he watched it back and realized how hard he hit her. It seems like even the next day he was still insisting it was a "love tap". I'm glad she took him to task over it. That was really disturbing to watch. 

    June sucks, and she's sucked from day 1. She could never keep her radio on or in her ear. You don't do that on a boat! What if there was an emergency, and your dumb ass is in the laundry room not hearing anything going on? And speaking of emergencies, she just let that pan sit on the stove, creating a dangerous situation while she freaking juiced oranges? WHAT!?

    Colin just annoys me now. The crying over June being let go. *eyeroll*

    I would think the radio issue would be a HUGE reason not to move her to the exterior.  They do a lot of heavy lifting and guiding the boat in tenuous/tight situations where communication is key. 

    I've also read a few opinions online that since Anastasia couldn't 'cut it' as chef, she should be let go.  Um, no?  She stepped up when asked and admitted that she bit off more than she could chew.  She should not be punished for it.  She was hired to be 3rd stew, so...sorry June.

    ALL of this. QFT. June sucks and is not intelligent enough to handle being a stew, let along being part of the deck crew. With all of the tight docking situations they've had this season and the issues with the anchor, there is NO WAY she has the experience/initiative/common sense/ability to work under pressure to be able to contribute positively to a safe outcome should another potentially dangerous situation arise. 

    I actually gasped when Travis slapped Anastasia's face. I was impressed that she had the courage to confront him head on.

    Right - she could barely hack it in interior. You're going to move her to the deck crew? No way, no how.

    I gasped at the smack too but I do wonder if there was sound added after?

    I think Joao is working on changing.  That's a journey.  I think he's on it and struggling with it.  He definitely sees how he used to be and I don't think he's that person anymore; back slides happen and when you're in the same environment and adding alcohol, it's hard to not back slide.

    I actually didn't like the way Joao confronted Travis, b/c it wasn't about the team or Travis' behavior, it was about gender roles.  I'm not quite sure what I would've done in that same situation, but I'm pretty sure everyone would've been swept into the van and taken home and I wouldn't have talked to anyone, except Anastasia who very obviously would've needed support/comfort, about anything until sober happened.  And I'm floored that Jack and Aesha are in any way, shape, or form, making excuses.  Aesha saying, "If it would've been me, it would've been a different story," really lowered my opinion of her.  Slapping sleeping people in the face is never going to be okay, not sure why that's hard.

    I think Colin is homesick, but he's good at his job.  I'm not sure about June's intelligence or anything, but someone saying they're passionate about their career compared with her behavior and work ethic on the job, isn't believable.  I think she'll allowed to be upset, but I would've made the same decision in a leadership role.  And Captain Sandy said she'd give a great reference, so I think June needs to accept she's hurt, but also this is the right decision for the full team.

    I think Colin is ready to head home. I think he’s very family oriented and missies that. Remember when his parents visited? He was so full of joy! His mom probably cooks dinner every Sunday and he is probably there more than his own place.

    That was cute when his parents visited. 

    I think Joao had a strong reaction to what Travis did because of his past.

    YES.  And seriously, stop sexually harassing the crew.  

    Also did you hear the whole, "I fucked your ex husband. Let's compare experiences!" WHAT?!

    YES. I really needed them to elaborate on that - forget about who had Sandy's attention; let's hear THAT story!!! LOL

    Also now that Anastasia is back to being a 3rd Stew, I thought for sure she would be off her high horse. But nope, nope, nope. She keeps reminding Aesha and other crew members how EASY and MINDLESS she thinks their job is compared to being a chef. And then she oversleeps by almost 2 hours! And brushes Sandy off when she calls her on it & tells her not to let it happen again! I wonder what would happen if Hannah got wind of these comments...

    Yes! Although that being said, I do think it's odd no one thought of putting domes on the food until last episode...

    Those charter guests were awful. It always bothers me so much when these entitled dickheads think they can flirt/fondle/harass the crew. These people are fucking working! The scene with Jack in the bridge - imagine if it were men doing that to a woman.

    I feel like domes probably make the food hard to carry b/c you're limited to 2, maybe 3 plates at a time?  Plus they take up a lot of space and space is just so premium on the ship.

    I also can't believe how drunk Travis was and how many times it's been at this level.  This was beyond, "I'm having trouble walking" and is into, "my brain is no longer able to send signals to my feet to work."  I'm not sure I believe the preview of Sandy talking to Travis, but honestly, there's no way this level of drinking, and the physical after effects, can't be affecting his work.

  • This episode reminds me why I don’t like Ben. I have nothing good for people so volatile like that, every little thing seems to set him off and he blows things out of proportion.

    I feel for him in a sense because I can be a shitty hot mess when I'm stressed out.  But he, like, lives in that chaos all the time.  

    I appreciated Sandy pulling Travis aside and showing him concern and sharing part of herself vs. firing him and chastising him. 

    Anastasia is obnoxious.  And she's clearly just as checked out as Travis from the season. 

    I love Jack and Aesha's silly, stupid romantic gestures.  I agree with Aesha, it is adorable and lovely when someone reminds you they're thinking of you when you're not around.  Sandy's reaction to his 'poetry' was priceless. 
  • I haven't seen Ben in other seasons, so I didn't have any history to him.  Right now he just seems really out of place and whiny.  I do feel for him though; I feel like if he'd set up his kitchen from the beginning, he'd probably be a lot more comfortable.

    These charter guests are annoying.

    So, Jack and Aesha still annoy me, but I also think they're kind of cute as a couple now.  

    Who is going to the hospital next week?!?!
