Gorga mansion. Joe gropes all up on Melissa as they prepare to go to Antonia's recital. They get into the car, and Melissa tells him to spend every minute possible with his parents because she regrets not having more time with her deceased father.
Catskills. The ladies have arrived back, and Juicy brags about his marksmanship. Caroline notes how much more comfortable Juicy is now that he's shot some rounds. Teresa sees how Caroline interacts with her brother Chris and is sad for what she's missing with her brother. Eventually Teresa's father brings in the pig, which grosses Caroline out. Not helped by the fact that Christopher is wagging the tongue in front of her face. A few minutes later, Chris waves a lamb head in front of her until she squeals and runs off. She insists she's only having pancakes and popcorn from here on out. Chris makes a toast, and they all sit down to eat. Juicy promises to be civil with Joe and Melissa at Jacqueline's holiday party, though he jokes that he's going to give Joe a wedgie one of these days.
Bonus: Juicy and Jacqueline can both do the splits -- Joe in the style of Jean-Claude Van Damme. That was something I did not need to see. That and his cockring. Double thanks!
After many drinks, the Giudices and the Lauritas decide to go ride around on four-wheelers, meriting a side eye from Caroline. It's less fun for Jacqueline, who thinks Chris drives too fast. She threatens to take his credit card on a shopping spree first thing when they get home. In a trifecta of ick, Teresa tells Juicy when they get back, "Thank you for the ride, I'll give you a ride later." Are they trying to kill me???
Back in Jersey, Kathy and her family arrive for Antonia's performance. Melissa warns Kathy that Teresa and Joe's mother will be there. It'll be the first time they've seen each other since the Posche fashion show. Kathy insists she'll always respect her aunt and refuses to get caught up in the petty stuff. Joe takes Antonia the elder out for a spin on the floor, and Melissa notes that the tension is completely gone with Teresa's not around.
