Prom ends. Everyone piles back into the limos and returns to the house and changes into pajamas and raids the kitchen. JockDan eats ice cream. Natasha eats a sandwich. Mmm, peanut butter and self-pity. Ben and Maya go outside to the hammock to discuss the ambiguous future of their sort-of relationship, and I could recap this scene, or I could tell you instead that when this part came on the air at the viewing party, Ben grabbed the woman he was there with and booked outside for a smoke break. I have no idea what that means. And from the scene itself, I really have no idea what Ben and Maya figured out, either. Go have a cigarette and come up with your own theory.
The drama continues with Barbato and Natasha, only with harsher lighting this time. They huddle on the couch, and their conversation is captioned, as if the crew really had to strain to catch every word. Dan B.: "Some people call it a one-night stand, but we can call it paradise." Natasha: "I've never been as sure as you have." Dan B.: "Can I convince you to be with me? Is that what you're trying to say?" Natasha: "No, that's not what I'm saying at all I got, like, swept up by you." Dan B.: "I will not buy that for one second. That is the biggest bunch of @\%$#." (Well, he says "bullshit," but, you know, captions.) "What about last night?" he says. She tells him that she's been slowly making the decision for a few days. "You're so @\%#*&$# shallow," he says. "Why do you think that is?" He sputters a few more harsh symbols at her and stands up. "I'm not in love with you," Natasha says. "I can't believe what you're doing right now," says Barbato. "I've never experienced that before in my life," he says. "To have this happen after I've been such a player is so very ironic," he adds. "Well, it's similarly ironic that I experience my inevitable retribution at your hands," says Natasha.
