The Gorga and Wakile clans hang out after Beatstock while Melissa, Cris and the dancers watch the video of her performance. Melissa doesn't want to be cocky, but she thinks she's awesome. Maybe next she'll actually try singing! An advanced move, I know. Kathy finds Melissa's success inspiring, and says that you have to go after things in life and not just accept what's handed to you. Ice cream shop sweets tasting table, here she comes! Teresa and Melissa talk awkwardly for a while about the Napa trip, and Teresa worries that because the roads are so windy they'll fall off a cliff. BEST SEASON FINALE EVER!!!! Teresa doesn't really want to go away with Jacqueline and Caroline, but says that this trip isn't about them. You know, except for the fact that they're the ones hosting it. Sigh. No, this trip is about Teresa and Juicy and Melissa and Joe reconnecting, in a small space, for five whole days. And Andy Cohen won't be satisfied until they've rekindled every last smidgen of their hatred for one another.
You know who's not so excited about the Napa trip? Jacqueline. She plans to keep to herself for the most part. Caroline too would like to uninvite the Giudices, but seems to think it's too late for that. Plus, I'm sure there are some contractual obligations around this whole situation. Chris says that he's planning on having Rich, Joe and Juicy over to talk about the trip. He's hoping that if all the guys are on the same page, they'll keep all the women in check. A great plan, especially given how well those other three guys get along. Albert says that he's not going. His very solid reasoning is that no good is going to come from engaging Joe Giudice in a conversation about any topic. He is the smartest person there. Albert Manzo's got sauce, y'all.
Next week: Prelude to a shitstorm.
