Hey Beach Bums!
Love is kind of in the air this week as Valentine’s Day approaches on Laguna. Raquel and Tessa are in the kitchen baking up something special (these two are just a couple of regular Betty Crockers, are they not?) and Rocky is rubbing it in to Tessa that her boyfriend, Alex, is planning a special V-day surprise for her. Tessa gets a backbone and (not) jokingly tells Raquel to “shut up” with all her swooning, because Tessa is sans a Valentine.
Kyndra continues to lie to Tyler, sticking to her story that all the rumors about her hooking up with Cameron at the dance are completely false. It’s obvious that Tyler does not believe her but he continues to be passive-aggressive and just gives Kyndra a creepy “whatever.” I think he might be a sociopath, like that crazy guy from Silence of The Lambs. Anyone? Meanwhile, Candace, Cami and Rachel dish about the Valentine’s Day party at Tyler’s house. Cami says she’s looking forward to the inevitable fight that Kyndra and Tyler will have. This girl is a piece of work! The old proverb “with friends like that who needs enemies” should be written on Cami’s tombstone.
Alex picks Rocky up for their date and takes her to a beachside dinner where these two lookers gaze into each other’s eyes. Rocky tells Alex that she loves him and, after a torturous silence, he reciprocates. Whew! I was worried that was going to be one of the moments that Raquel would never live down…
Cut to the next day when Alex and his friend talk about the previous night and Alex basically says he’s so not in love with Raquel. What to believe? If I feel betrayed, imagine how Raquel must feel watching this. It breaks my heart a little bit.
At the weirdest Valentine’s Day party ever, Cameron shows up and tries way too hard, along with Kyndra, to play it cool. Cam and Nick act like schoolgirls and make fun of Tyler at the dinner table while Kyndra feels awkward. Tyler calls Kendra on her obvious preoccupation with Cam, as Nikki takes the opportunity to cuddle with the stud. The next day, Kyndra and Tyler battle it out and he kicks her to the curb. Chalk this up to just another happy Valentine’s Day down in Laguna history.
Until next time,
