The Real World: Austin - Episode 18 Summary

'Run Erik Run!' By volsfan
Original Airdate: October 18, 2005

Over the past 3-4 weeks I have asked myself why I continue to follow this horrible train wreck. I have yet to come up with an answer that makes any sense. If any of you can help me find a reason I would greatly appreciate it! So, I will try to get everyone caught up with this summary.

The episode starts with Rachel on the phone to her “boyfriend” Erik. Erik tells her he is coming for a visit and will bring Rachel’s dog Reese. Reese is considered a dog but looks more like an oversized rat.

Dumber and Dumberest (Mel and Danny) are walking down the street and Dumberest is telling Mel that he is going to call the detective that is handling the case against the guy that bashed his head. Why the hell has it taken him 17 weeks to call? I understand that his mother died but he couldn’t have forgotten about it.

Danny is then shown calling Detective Sullivan and he goes through the entire incident and tells Sullivan he will meet him the next day. Danny also tells Sullivan that he will bring the videotape as well.

Rachel goes to greet Erik and Reese at the airport. However, on the way we get to see confessionals of Rachel thinking about whether she needs more time to be single. Ok, this is the 9,847,681 times this has happened over the last 17 seasons of this show. The more things change the more they stay the same. Maybe we could hookup Rachel with Shavonda’s ex from last season. RUN ERIK RUN!

Satan’s Secretary (Lacey) is on the phone with her boyfriend dishing the latest gossip about Erik saving money to buy Rachel an engagement ring. At this point I don’t think it is any of Lacey’s business and she should keep her conniving ass out of it.

Erik and Reese get to the house and are introduced to everyone. Danny grabs Reese and wonders if he can swim. So he throws the oversized rat in the pool…and yes…Reese can swim! I wish Danny had thrown Lacey in the pool with cement blocks secured to her ankles.

Erik, Reese and Rachel go to bed where Erik thinks action is in his future. That’s about where the action will be (in Erik’s mind) because Rachel makes the announcement that she doesn’t want to have sex. Erik asks like 5 times for her to talk about it and she sulks and whines but doesn’t say anything. RUN ERIK RUN!

Rachel tells us in a confessional that the spark is gone in her relationship with Erik. If I were Erik I would take a match, strike the match and make Rachel sit on it. I bet she would find said spark. RUN ERIK RUN!

Just when I thought things couldn’t get worse…Erik is bonding with Pimp Daddy Wes! Erik seems like a very nice guy and deserves much better than Rachel. Wes tells Erik that it is time to go out partying. * yawn *

I didn’t catch this segment the first time I watched but in the bar Danny tells Erik that he will marry Mel one day. Rachel walks up and Erik tells her that they are thinking of marriage. Rachel says that they need to talk. I know a woman can change her mind but this is just idiocy! No more than a couple of hours ago Erik was begging Rachel to talk. Rachel is too damn wishy washy for me.

Danny goes to the police station to meet with Detective Sullivan. We find out that Sullivan didn’t sign waivers to appear on MTV as his face is blurred. Blurred face explains to Danny the process and then takes him into his office.

Lacey being a good little snitch (that she is) has cornered Erik in the upstairs room. Lacey proceeds to bad mouth how Rachel is treating Erik. Rachel is standing at the bottom of the steps and she can hear everything being said. Lacey proceeds to tell how sickening it is to see Rachel go and make out with guys then come back the house to call Erik and tell him that she loves him. Again…this should be none of her business yet she just keeps going (sort of like that damn Energizer bunny!).

Erik and Rachel go out to eat and Rachel tells Erik that she heard everything they talked about. Erik asks Rachel to leave the restaurant and they go to a park to talk (I looked carefully but I didn’t see batts in the background). I think Lacey and Erik agree to stay on a break. GAWD! This is getting worse than Ross and Rachel. RUN ERIK RUN!

Pimp Daddy Wes is going to throw a vaginafest by calling all the hoes they have met and inviting them to the R Bar. THEN…Rachel has the balls to tell Erik she won’t disrespect him by going out while he is there. I guess it is fine when he isn’t there because she has made out with other guys and Erik will see it as the show airs on TV. RUN ERIK RUN!

Blurred face calls to tell Danny the warrant has been filed for the arrest of the guy that bashed him. Danny tells everyone the guy could get 5-10 years if convicted.

Erik and Reese heads out as he looked disappointed at how things went during his visit. Rachel tells Wes that she is sad and she needs a gossip magazine and comfort food. Pimp Daddy Wes is giving her advice but I don’t pay any attention as the show comes to an end.

RUN ERIK RUN!
