Episode 2.6 - August 2
Last week we saw the figurative marriage between Mr.
Kerry and Mr. Edwards. This week, we may see a literal
one between Marty and either Suzanne or Stacy. The girls
seem to like Suzanne, while Marty clearly wants Stacy.
Unfortunately for Marty, the girls have the final call.
Which side will get what they want?
After the recap that tells us how we got to this
position, we see the position of the two women left.
Suzanne and Stacy are prettying up in their room while
dinner is being prepared downstairs. Suzanne is telling
Stacy that it's the last night and she wants to talk.
Stacy says that if it's going to be ugly, that she wants
no part of it and she is going to go for dinner. Suzanne
needs to know if she is in it for love, and she
confronts her about it. Suzanne tells Stacy that she
wants to know if she really loves Marty. That is like
trying to dunk a cat in a hot tub and the fight is on.
"You want to sit in a lie detector? Don't question me."
says Stacy, who adds that she isn't going to tell
Suzanne everything about what she's feeling. This goes
on for the next 5 minutes as the claws FINALLY come out.
This continues during dinner as Stacy and Suzanne
continue their war of words, with Stacy capping it with
saying that she hopes for the best if Marty picks
Suzanne. Marty admits that he has his favorite (Stacy),
but he has feelings for both women. The girls
The fax machine rings, and tells the women that their
wedding rings are outside. The doorbell rings and when
each woman answers the door, they are greeted by a
little girl with a wedding ring. They share kisses and
hug as we say AwwwwBarf. The door then rings for the
third time. They should know better than to answer it,
but they do, and out comes, in his best tux, the
Polygraph Man. Stacy - "Sorry, wrong house.", and she
slams the door on him. Nice.
Unfortunately, they let him in anyway, and Stacy has to
go first. She says that she would gnaw off her own leg
in a bear trap to get help for dad (TRUE), that she
would love them as stepdaughters (TRUE), and that she
would give Suzanne her blessing if she lost (LIE) and
that she has fallen in love with Marty (TRUE).
It's Suzanne's turn, and she says that if everything
boils down to a lie detector test, then she's ready. We
can tell that right off the bat as she says she doesn't
like Stacy, and the girls are aghast when it says TRUE.
She says it's ok if they cut her off after a year and
she says yes (LIE) and she says that she does not expect
dad to finance the shopping sprees (LIE). She says that
she has fallen in love with Marty (TRUE).
The girls are wondering how to make this decision, but
it seems based on the Lie Detector, that the decision
has been made for them - all signs point to Stacy. Will
the girls agree?
It's the last day n the house, and Marty thinks that
it's the last day as a single man. The girls ask the
women for a final plea for Marty. Suzanne starts it off,
and she says that she found a family that exceeded her
expectations. She then asks Marty to help her finish it,
saying that she can't believe that she fell in love with
someone so quickly. She says that all she wants is his
happiness, and Marty told her that he thought that she
would be there since day 1. Suzanne calls and gets a
Stacy has nothing to give but her love. She says that
she has come in logical - and she is now full of love
and hope. She says that regardless of what happens, she
wants to be a part of their lives. This time, it's the
girls who want a group hug - and they get it. Marty says
that he has no doubts that she loves him - and that he
has no doubts on who he wants. You can tell on his face
- but he's not making the decision and the girls think
that each women is perfect in different ways.
It's Marty's turn. He calls them all down and thanks the
women for sticking around and the girls for making the
tough decisions. "I love you more than you can possibly
know." They all get together in a big hug and you all
know what's coming next. AwwwwwBarf.
Brooke tells the women that the girls and dad will be
making the final decision. They send the women away,
telling them that they will be in separate hotels - but
only one of them will be leaving with them.
The girls then get a heart-to-heart with dad. They ask
him about a preference, and he says Stacy. That doesn't
sit will with the girls, because they have decided on
Suzanne. Dad leaves, and the girls are really torn,
because they think that dad's making a grave mistake. Do
they make a choice that dad wants for now, or do they
make one that dad won't like for now, but may understand
that it's the better choice later on down the road?
We'll see that choice as we fast-forward to that night.
Dad is anxious to know who the girls picked. We will
find out as we see the first person to come out of the
limo. We all know that the first person to come out is
usually the runner-up, and that person is... Suzanne.
She walks down the outside steps to a scene that looks
like a bridal scene out of The Waterlillies - whole all
over the place, up to the altar area where Marty is in
his tux. Apparently, Marty doesn't know that the first
woman called down is the bridesmaid and not the bride,
as he astonishingly looked at the girls and asks "You
picked Suzanne?" The girls are stone-faced and Marty
thinks that he won the booby prize.
The girls now talk their spiel to Suzanne. They loved
how she could put a smile on anyone's face - and they
wanted her to be one of the last women standing. Uh-oh.
They also talk about how nurturing she is and how she
fit in perfectly. Here it comes... "You mean the world,
Suzanne... but... we did not choose you to marry our
dad. I'm so sorry."
Suzanne covers her mouth with her hand and she looks
like she's going to throw up. While she is crying on
Marty's shoulder, Marty is looking at the girls, amazed
and beaming. She cries on Marty and she s escorted out
by him. "It hurts, but regardless of why, everything
happens for a reason. Someday, the right man will come
along." Now it's Nicole who wants to throw up, as they
relent for dad. "She would have been the perfect mother
- but dad wasn't in love with her."
Before Stacy shows up, dad tells the girls how he
appreciates the decision, realizing how tough it must
have been on them. They get another reassuring group him
while they wait for Stacy to show up. With Suzanne's
loss, that means Stacy wins - but she doesn't know it
yet. She has butterflies in her stomach and she is
bracing herself to be eliminated. As she comes down, she
gets a welcome hug from Marty. The girls don't know how
to start as they notice that she is clearly worried.
They said that she has beauty that is breathtaking and
that she has amazing presence. She said that the look on
her face speaks volumes more than anything she has said
for the past 3 weeks. (That's all the time they spent
and they are looking for love? Sheesh.)
The girls say that she has always been a wonderful
person - but that her vows to Marty sealed the deal.
They pop the question and ask her to marry their dad.
Stacy just sits there looking stunned. She says that she
is unworthy of this, and she thinks she is going to wake
up in around 10 minutes. She winds up babbling and
hugging Marty, who says that he finally found true love.
Marty then gets down on one knee and proposes. She, of
course, says yes and everyone's happy.
Marty, who feels that he finally found happiness and
love in his life again, slips the ring on Stacy's
finger. They wind up swapping saliva while the girls
watch on. They say how happy they are, as the girls say
how well Stacy and Marty complement each other. Stacy -
"The future holds so much promise - more than I thought
was possible." We finish with that - and a montage of
Stacy and Marty through the season. Fade to black. End
My take? Well, it's the same show that I am used to
seeing - nothing new or too exciting that shows up here.
In this case, that works, because you don't mess around
with something that works. The ratings show that people
agree and we'll probably be seeing a third version of
this show next summer. This gets a solid B from me, as
this has once again been a fun and entertaining series.
Unfortunately, we have to part from the series, but I
hope you enjoyed the recaps.
