Recap written by Rap541
Ah, its night and I have off! Also had some good news, my dad doesn’t have Alzheimer’s, he has an easily treated B12 deficency that was causing his symptoms and already seems better after having a shot. So, yay! I also became a sustaining supporter of my local PBS station, I am so grown up now!
Jeremy looks like Sideshow Bob these days. In the reruns, I am struck again by how sweet Zach and Tory are when grieving. I am also struck by how kind the farm worker was to Tory, how heartfelt he sounded in expressing his sorrow. It was very kind and we don’t see enough acts like that these days.
It’s amusing to see Caryn just smack Matt back to work. Bonus scene! Oh look! It’s Matt mourning Sully for the cameras. He does a little confessional on how sad it is. Oh another bonus scene! Amy and Lisa “touring space” for their restaurant that will never happen. Amy basically wants a hobby restaurant. Amy, this is a *terrible* idea, stop it. Please just write a children’s book about your dog or the goats or something. In the end, it will cost less.
New bonus scene – Matt notes how directing the shoot is a big test for Zach and as usual he hopes Zach doesn’t screw it up. Now that we know Matt has an extra bedroom in the double wide, why do Jeremy and Auj insist on staying in Amy’s little sex den of horrors when they could stay with Daddy Matt and avoid all the tensions with Mom?
I’m still struck by Audrey’s smirk upon discovering the reality that Zach and Tory’s baby will likely be LP.
So Tory and Zach are opening baby stuff. They haybale how they are and aren’t prepared. They also rehash that the kid is likely to be a dwarf. Tory looks huge. They put together baby stuff. Basically its silly and kinda cute.
In Bend! Jer and Auj are still referring to the baby as a boy. Auj is 17 weeks and says the nurse offered to tell her the gender but of course they’re copying Zach and Tory by having a gender reveal party! :D Jeremy wants the gender reveal party to be low key. Audrey goes on about wanting a boy, and Jeremy wants a boy to play with Zach’s boy. Jeremy looks like a hobo Sideshow Bob. They go on about loving Bend and their friends in Bend and yet are havng the gender reveal party on the farm. Hmmm.
Matt wants the party to be not at Amy’s house. He then whines that he doesn’t have a nice big house where the kids to have a party. He wants a new house. Amy strongly notes that he needs to do that with his own money and not the farm money and then they have genuine argument about Matt’s constant whine about how he’s dying so he should get his way. Amy calls him on that shit. Finally! Seriously, you go, Amy! He was getting pissed, too and she was having none of that!
Zach moans on the couch and describes basically how he has migraine headaches.
At the farm, Matt is in the men’s adventure hut and talks to Zach on the phone about Zach’s mystery illness. Now it’s stomach pain. Matt chimes how serious medical stuff is and how Zach needs to see a doctor and isn’t this the same guy who openly stated he refused to see a doctor because they were basically butchers who tortured him?
Zach wanders in to ask Amy’s opinion on his fibromyalgia. Amy wonders if it’s his shunt (this seems like the obvious choice) Amy notes how worrisome it was. Amy describes the shunt issue. She then tells Zach to see a neurosurgeon.
Jeremy wanders into Matt’s office. To plan the gender reveal party. Jer notes Mom’s house is practical. Matt shits on that idea and notes how *awkward* it is and offers to stir up some drama. Jeremy haybales that he’s not interested in drama. They check out the wedding barn. I note Matt is getting his way by actually threatening to create a problem. Audrey notes that there’s no bathroom in the wedding barn. The wedding barn is also basically gross and Jeremy finally decides to use “the big house”.
Matt threatened to create drama to get his way. How charming.
Now we’re back to Amy and Lisa making a home business. Amy loves making sweet breads and considers selling them on line.
Matt ropes Jeremy into helping him move the new pirate ship. Matt blames the openly rotting old pirate ship on his neck injury and not on basic neglect. Matt notes how if Jer has a boy, things will be wild! Jer notes how he misses being a man. Matt screeches and the pirate ship is moved. Matt notes that recent days have been “dark days”. The pirate ship is placed oddly.
Back at Matt’s office, Amy, Zach and Matt discuss the baby. And baby CPR. Matt relates a story where Zach as a baby almost died until Honey did baby CPR stuff.
At Zach and Tory’s, Jeremy and Auj are there. There’s a cute bear outfit. Jeremy notes that its rare for an LP like Zach to have an LP child and I sort of want to slap him because Zach has a 50 percent chance of having an LP child which means NOT RARE. Then I remind myself it’s Jeremy, who is still expressing shock and “what does it MEAN????” over the very concept that his dwarf brother may have a dwarf child. Jeremy notes how he’s doing the gender reveal at Amy’s and the dynamics are so messy and peculiar! And tough! It’s all so tough for Jer. Audrey btw barely speaks except to agree how the dynamic is awkward and messy and peculiar!
Amy and Lisa continue to natter on about the business they are planning. They plan to sell baked stuff on line. Baker friend gives them some reality checks. Amy? Lisa? TLC? NO ONE CARES.
At Zach and Tory’s. Zach goes on about his vaginitis. Tory notes that she is pretty concerned about this. She worries about the possibility that her child could have similar health issues. Since it’s in People magaizine today, Jackson is a dwarf baby and watching Zach and Tory… I am more and more convinced that they could carry the show. I don’t think that’s a good idea but dwarf babies mean more seasons so…
Amy makes cupcakes for the gender reveal party. All the friends and family except Caryn and Chris – Jeremy doesn’t want drama. And now they insist that they want a girl. Some friend we’ve never ever seen before, Cambria, is in charge of the *smoke grenades*. Auj monotones how cool the smoke bombs are. Matt trots in, guests already there, and Matt thinks it’s a girl. Amy asks after Caryn and Matt notes how Caryn WAS NOT invited (and seems annoyed). Amy notes that she didn’t invite Chris. Matt asks if she needs anything and she notes the party is basically on so no. This is actually quite hilarious as it’s pretty classic Matt - showing up literally when the party is starting to pretend to want to help and Amy was having *none* of that game playing
Pop and Honey and Molly are there. Everyone discusses boy or girl. They head outside for the gender reveal with the smoke grenades. And commercial!
Oh and there’s a commercial with Jackson! He looks gross and squishy to me but I don’t like children.
It’s a girl, although Audrey’s smoke bomb was a tease. Jeremy monotones how excited he is about having a girl and how his dynamic is changed. Matt facepalms disappointment at the smoke and notes that Zach’s boy will now be king of the farm. Jeremy is stoked and notes it would have been too out of control to have a boy. My goodness they wanted a boy really bad…
For the record, this looked like a MUCH BIGGER party than Zach and Tory's. And did we see special friends Dale and Veronica?
