Vinnie shows up next and does a little jig of happiness to see Pauly. Not so much for Angelina, whom he says "lacks brains," which makes them incompatible as friends. He sets up his stuff in the room that he'll share with Ronnie, who arrives shortly after. Sammi says for the gajillionth time that it's going to be a difficult situation seeing her ex, but she'll have to deal with it. He gets the tour from the guys while Sammi wanders around pretending to be busy unpacking but is actually conspicuously ignoring him. She finally trudges out to the kitchen so they can cross paths, and they cut to commercial before we can see his reaction.
Another Blockbuster interstitial (for a heist flick) in which JWoww acts like a vapid, brainless ditz. The ShePratt of the Jersey Shore, if you will. Also, The Situation doesn't steal money, he steals hearts. Ugh.
Back to this show's attempt at a cliffhanger, Sammi makes her way out to see Ronnie for the first time in months. He gives her a friendly, earnest hug, which only makes her fully realize that she's put herself in a potentially horrible situation, particularly by sleeping in the room right next to his. They unpack side by side, and she tries to throw a barb at him (if you consider, "Gym, tan, smush" a barb...). He walks out, and Vinnie appoints himself Captain Obvious to Ronnie's Captain Smush, walking through the closet area to Sammi and singing, "Awkwaaaaaard!"
That night as the housemates discuss the finer points of bikini waxing, Snooki and JWoww finally arrive. In club wear, no less. Or should I say Filthy Couture? They're just as ecstatic to see Angelina as everyone else and give her the silent treatment. Snooki echoes Sammi's concerns about Angelina's ass-talking. The guys sense the tension, but Angelina pretends she's above it, then heads out for a smoke with Sitch and talks yet more trash. For her part, Snooki claims she just wants an apology. JWoww would prefer to smash a bitch's face in. And she may just get her chance because Angelina swears she'll go off on anyone who talks shit about her. Mike tinkles his fingers at the prospect. Cut to Snooki and Sammi making a toast to "having a good time... and girls." Cut back to Angelina interviewing with zero self-awareness that Snooki and JWoww are too fake for her.
