A Crime to Remember was really good tonight. On a rewatch I notice again that the windmill is not actually the super cool bar thing that was originally proposed.
Also Alan Thicke died. That’s sad. I liked him on Growing Pains.
Bonus scene is some sort of project for Audrey showing Amy how to do barre3 and Jeremy making a barre for Amy. I see why it didn’t make the cut. Next bonus scene is Zach bringing Matt an exercise bike for Matt. Matt seems to like it. I for one am genuinely happy if that helps him.
So Matt, first up, you need to stop praising yourself for living on the same property as your ex because first, you really don’t have to. Second, I know people who divorced and continued living in the same *house*. You’re not that pretty and you’re not that special, Matt.
Amy is making food and pondering how she’s in the big house alone. What will Amy do? Amy harps on how she was denied work as a little person. Apparently this is the bed and breakfast idea episode.
We see farm animals that I assume Ryan takes care of since they are still alive. Matt is all about his life changing revelations. Oh look, we get the panorama of Matt’s pain filled horror show of a childhood where he cried out to God for relief and never was cured. He wants to write a children’s book.
Apparently the book is about his dog. Zach is reasonably supportive.
Amy skypes with Audrey and Pine. Amy wants to do a B&B with tents. Audrey loves “glamping” and notes how this is what she and Jer do. Amy asks Auj for help. Auj doesn’t actually commit but… Amy tosses the B&B idea at Matt and Matt totally shits on it. He gets in the haybale how fucking stupid it is. He then publicly chides her for her stupidity. In the haybale he notes how its not a good business model and it’s more work for him but he “doesn’t want to discourage Amy” even tho he pretty openly shits on the idea.
Jer and Auj drove up from Bend to help! Auj looks like a ragbag, oddly, as does Jer. Amy wants a fire pit and tents and int eh haybales , Auj and Jer look much less petulant and hung over. Jer notes that he feels the area for the guests is too sacred. Jer apparently wants the b&B tents basically in a shitty field rather than the sacred area.
Two days to the B&B. Amy trusts Auj’s style. In this haybale Auj looks more put together and of course Auj notes how she and Jer want to live on the farm, own the farm, and create businesses on the farm. Auj, you’re kissing the wrong person’s ass.
Matt is recovering and checking on the pumpkins! Amy tells Matt the B&B is happening. Matt notes in the haybale again how he thinks this is a total shit idea and stupid. Matt is also worried about people just wandering around the property. Matt hates it and is working on his children’s book. He wonders if Amy has done the math on B&B’s. I wonder if he’s done the math on vanity based children’s books.
Jer and Zach are getting chopped wood and discussing how cool Amy has gotten.
Now Tori and Matt? Go out because its weird and awkward. Matt immediately asks about the grand children. Matt then turns to his children’s book idea and how he worries about underdogs and adversity and his dog Lucy and its funny because I have a friend who is doing a totally similar thing. Tori equates it to her job and wants Matt to read to her kids.
It’s the day of the event and tents are being set up! There’s tents and Jeremy and Auj note how this is basically all about their own personal interest in owning the farm and taking over the farm. Amy checks everything out. As someone who reads Jer and Auj’s blog, I question how people will fuck for Jesus on separate cots. Zach is all is the food done? Amy freaks.
There’s drama over the wine glasses. Amy takes people to the cool tents.
Meanwhile at the library, Matt is telling stories to kids and they are basically much more involved with themselves. They’re clearly Tori’s students. Matt tells a story about Lucy the tiniest dog and Tori picks up the whole “This is really Matt and how Matt was tortured by his awful childhood. The kids are polled and of course they love the idea because they are five and they are Tori’s class.
Meanwhile at the B&B, DINNER IS RUNNING LATE! The guests are restless. I mostly don’t care.
So dinner is super late and Jeremy has no idea what utensils are to be used. They seem to be at the windmill and maybe not. Auj notes how Amy fucked up in polite passive aggressive tones. Meanwhile it seems to go well. Amy checks back and notes there will be a bonfire.
Jer notes how this is an Amy progression. Personally I think they will have problems with land use laws but it does seem fun. Amy asks for feedback. Someone recommends the obvious – running water.
Amy tells Matt how she enjoyed it. Matt seems to hate it and also hates the children’s book idea. Matt notes how resilient little people are and how Tori will be a good mom. Amy notes how Tori and Auj will be good moms “in their own way”. Yeah that’s interesting.
