Hey Beach Bums! It's not looking happy for Raquel this week, as Alex tells E.J. that he's thinking of breaking up with Rock because she's way too intense for him and he just wants to be single. E.J., sympathetic man that he is, says, "sucks for Rocky" and the boys are on their way. Doesn't make you miss high school now, does it? Rocky and Alex meet at the beach and Alex tells her he is confused about their relationship. Raquel vows she will change and offers to back off and give him some space. She makes it extremely hard for him to break up with her and basically begs for a second chance, to which he agrees. The kids are a buzz about the upcoming beach bonfire, and all concerned because of the "freezing weather." It's tough to have to wear a sweatshirt in the dead of winter. Lexie and Rachel are having lunch when Alex and his friend Stephen roll up to the girls for some awkward conversation. They do a little flirting and, when the girls leave, the guys giggle about how cute they are. Stephen suggests that Alex get rid of Rocky ASAP. Laguna's manly men meet at the beach for some Top Gun wannabe volleyball before the bonfire. Cameron makes it a point to take off his shirt and show off his killer abs, just as the girls show up. Kyndra and Cami complain about the sand. Yes, that's right, they complained about the sand. In Laguna. At the beach. At the bonfire Tessa and Raquel are, once again, treated like outcasts. Nobody talks to them and there is plenty of talking and whispering behind their backs. It is so sad and infuriating that those ogres outshine these nice girls. Alex and Rocky go for a walk and Raquel badgers him to speak his mind and express his feelings. Alex finally says "he's done" and "he's sorry" and Raquel pretends to be strong and walks away. Within minutes Alex is macking on Lexie and getting her digits -- right in front of Raquel! Next week looks juicy, too. Can't wait to see you then!
Until next time,
