We’d like to think of BROOKLYN KINDA LOVE’s Episode 6 as somewhat of a game changer. Bek and Erin broke out the tears over the “waxing” ordeal, Frances and Braniff finally let another girl into their bedroom, and Rhiannon seemed ready to slip back into substance abuse! So, what were the repercussions of all that? Episode 7’s got the answers.
First off, Bek and Erin got quite a lot of screen time this week, which led to some interesting revelations. Bek had briefly brought up her “strict upbringing” before, but now we got some insight into just how harsh it was. Coming from a family of self-described “Jesus freaks,” Bek had a tough time coming to terms with her sexual identity. She shared an emotional story about her first girlfriend and all of the efforts that her parents took to keep them apart. Erin seemed to lighten the mood a little, dressing up as the holy man for their wild Halloween party. Nikki and Chris brought up issues that we all can identify with – money. New York is an expensive city and not everyone has the cashflow to party in those fancy penthouses. These two are struggling just to pay rent and butting heads about budgets. Speaking of butting heads, Vinny and Rhiannon are going through their own major rough patch at the moment. He feels the need to break away and get some “guy time” while she’s whipping out the straws and mirrors. Yup, our cameras captured EVERYTHING and believe us, that wasn’t baking soda she and her girlfriend were passing around. Frances and Braniff also let it all out with fights, tears, and a little makeup sex. Though last week’s threesome looked like a carefree fling, it seems to have had a lasting impact on their relationship.
