Downstairs, Sitch, Deena and JWOWW can hear the smash-up in progress. Sitch thinks this whole soap opera is Sammi's fault, which is partly true but also a big old load of sexist bullshit if I ever saw one. Sure, she shouldn't have chosen him over her girlfriends, but the fact that he's a lying, philandering sack of monkey butts is not all on her. In any case, from Sitch's perspective, Sammi should have asserted herself a long time ago, giving Ronnie space to be himself (see above) and Sammi the chance get to know herself. JWOWW dismisses Sammi as being "not the type to let loose." Forget the girl in the club last week, Sammi is the parasite here.
Back upstairs, Ronnie rages on Sammi some more, bellowing that she should tell him what he did to make her turn on him. She responds like she doesn't know what he did, which makes no sense whatsoever and certainly doesn't quell Ronnie's anger. Pauly joins the confused eavesdroppers as Ronnie roars that he's done and leaves Sammi scrunching up her face to keep the tears from falling. Ronnie barrels downstairs. Pauly asks him if everything's all right. Ronnie responds, "Same bullshit, different day." Which is as apt a description of my job as any, thanks to the cracking producers who continue to find SamRo 2.0 compelling. Enough already!
Sammi weeps in a corner somewhere while Ronnie goes with Sitch to GTL and clear his mind. On the way, he says Sammi isn't the same girl he met and that he's having doubts about whether he wants to be with her anymore. As he takes out his aggression in the gym, Ronnie interviews that he's frustrated with Sammi pushing him away. He insists he hasn't done anything since Miami, and that she shouldn't be bringing old issues to this house. He thinks she needs to grow up, cut out the drama, and make her own decisions.
Meanwhile, Sammi, Snooki and Pauly report for duty at the T-shirt shop. Sammi takes the opportunity to apologize to Snooki for cutting her off last season. She acknowledges that she was completely wrong about Ronnie and that Snooki showed she was a good friend by stepping in to help Sammi. Snooki asks if Sammi is going to stay with Ronnie now that she knows the truth. Sammi says she doesn't know. She admits that she would have told Snooki to fuck off if the tables had been turned, which shows what a good person Snooki actually is. Snooki offers Sammi a shoulder to cry on no matter what happens, and they share a reconciliatory hug.
