That night, Snooki ends her slop-free sabbatical to head out with the gang, though she swears she'll only have one drink. Karma, ho! JWOWW sees Roger again, and they clear the air that her friend was mistaken in thinking he had a girlfriend. They start fresh with a harmless peck.
The gang heads back home with smiles on their faces. Sitch notes that the house is full of energy now that SamRo 2.0 isn't fighting. The words are still hanging in the air when JWOWW takes a phone call from Tommy. Ronnie has the gall to compare JWOWW's combined total of 30 minutes flirting with Roger to his bazillion shithead moves in Miami. What's worse, he delights in the possibility of sending an anonymous note to Tommy pointing out what a "shady bitch" JWOWW is. Okay, for the sake of brevity I'm not even going to start comparing apples and oranges. I'm not saying JWOWW's completely innocent by any means, but that's a load of self-denying, rationalizing horseshit right there. And it goes without saying that it's sexist and/or misogynist on about a million levels. Regardless, JWOWW and Tommy have another accusatory, strained conversation wherein he hangs up on her instead of saying "I love you" and she says under her breath, "That's why I'm leaving your ass, douche." All because two people fell in love!
The next day, JWOWW calls Roger and makes plans to meet him on the boardwalk. Deena tags along for a double date with Roger's friend Alex. JWOWW admits to having a conflict between her "high school feelings" for Roger and her relationship with Tommy. Speak of the devil, the old cheese ball-and-chain calls just as JWOWW is leaving. She tells him she's going to the boardwalk but omits the fact that Roger will be there, saying she's going to wait and see how both possibilities pan out. The four friends play along the boardwalk, and JWOWW snuggles up on Roger on a ride. She justifies that Tommy pushed her into Roger's arms by being apathetic about their relationship.
