Never miss a local story.
Ronnie tells Deena and Pauly D that the Situation stabbed him in the back. Ronnie says he will put the Sitch in his place. He then suggests they go to the boardwalk.
Pauly D says he wants to get Ronnie's mind off the Sitch. They're at the fun park, riding several rides. Meanwhile, Deena and Sweetheart go to a beach bar, where they have some shots. Sweetheart spots Ronnie and Pauly D walk past, and Deena says that Ronnie was with a girl.
Sweetheart then calls a random guy over to her to make him jealous. They get a phone number and leave the bar.
Everyone is back at the house, and Ronnie asks for the Situation, because he's ready to talk to him. He's not there, though, and Sweetheart asks if he wants to talk. He does, but not until he speaks with the Situation.
Ronnie tells Sweetheart about his anger against the Sitch. The Situation then walks into the home and asks if the crew wants to get some food, saying they'll all friends.
"We're not all friends," Ronnie tells him.
And it's our first commercial sign!!!
Ronnie then begins arguing with the Situation about his conversation with Sweetheart. The Situation then tries to explain his opinion about their flawed relationship, saying they always fight.
The Sitch gives the viewer a recap about Miami and the note, when he confirmed that the contents of the note were true. Back to current times: Ronnie says the Sitch had girl code, not guy code and that the Situation didn't have his back.
The Situation then says he must apologize before the situation, lowercase, gets out of hand. He then apologizes and the whole fight immediately defuses.
The crew is preparing for a night out, and JWoww wants to spend some time with Roger before he has to leave. They go to a Mexican restaurant to spend some quality time together, but he knows many people at the restaurant and they all introduce themselves and interupt during the whole meal.
Back at the house: Sweetheart says she needs to talk to Ronnie. She asks how he could look her in the eye and lie to her. Ronnie gets angry and tells her he was man enough to apologize, and that she should do the same.
Sweetheart says she gave her number out, but that she never kissed anyone. Ronnie says he's done with the conversation and he leaves.
Sweetheart is talking to the girls outside, who tell her she should just dance and have a good time and not worry about associating with other men. Sweetheart worries that Ronnie will do something inappropriate this evening.
Ronnie tells the guys that he's going to go out with them this evening. He goes upstairs to get some clothes out of his closet. She asks what he will do if a woman approaches him, and he tells her they're not dating anymore. The guys downstairs hear them shouting, and they choose to remain out of the situation, lowercase.
Ronnie yells out that he's going to use the common room tonight, and Sweetheart tells him that she's done with him. The Situation wanders into the room to prepare for the evening, and Sweetheart and Ronnie push each other as they move toward the clothes in the closet. Sweetheart tells him she wants nothing to do with him, and the Situation tells the rest of the crew to come upstairs.
Ronnie grabs one of the beds and begins carrying it away as Sweetheart jumps on it and hangs on. She's screaming that she hates Ronnie and she's fighting the crew in order to get to him. Vinny tries to hold Ronnie back as she constantly tells him that she hates him.
And it's commercial sign time!!!
Back to the intense fight: Ronnie tells Sweetheart that he has women cooking dinner for him and he asks how many times she cooked for him. The fight finally breaks apart. Ronnie is sitting outside while Sweetheart talks to the girls. Ronnie then starts throwing all of Sweetheart's belongings on the porch.
The guys leave for the night, and Sweetheart is worried that Ronnie is going to meet a woman that night. The girls tell her that Sweetheart should wear something attractive when they go out.
The guys are at their first bar, where they're trying to cool him down. Back at the house: The girls try to calm down Sweetheart, who's just found all her clothes on the porch. The girls move Sweetheart's bed into their room, where they're trying to rebuild her bed. They're having difficulty moving the bed through the stairwell, and they decide to just try to move the mattress.
They finally get ready and leave for the night. They reach the club and imediately start looking for male friends. Sweetheart stands on a table and announces she wants an attractive man. He's watching her with his crazy eyes, and she tells the camera that she intends to make him jealous.
The Situation: "Wow. That's a situation."
We've get commercial sign situation!!!
Sweetheart is dancing with random men, and I'm forced to wonder why the two groups didn't find a different club to go to in a city this size. Ronnie says he's angered by the fact that Sweetheart had the gall, the gall!!!, to get dressed up and dance with other men.
Ronnie and the boys leave and return to the house. Ronnie says her actions were disrespectful and he begins destroying her personal items. He pushes her bed completely outside.
The girls return home, and Sweetheart says she's worried what she's walking into. She returns to her room and sees her items destroyed and cast all over the room. She finds her glasses broken and she cries.
Sweetheart then finds Ronnie sitting outside and she shows him the glasses. The Situation leaves and Sweetheart questions him about why he believes his actions are acceptable.
Ronnie says she disrespected him. Sweetheart asks why he can commit the equivalent of murder but she can't do one action out of spite. Ronnie says her actions tonight crushed him. He, at least, associated with other women so she wouldn't know about it.
Back at the club: The girls return to the home, and JWoww says she is going to give him a present before he leaves the town for a few weeks. She then enters the common room wearing a special outfit. They go to a special room to spend time together.
And we've got commercial sign!!!
The next morning: Roger leaves and the rest of the crew talk about the drama between Sweetheart and Ronnie. The Situation says he believes Ronnie owes everyone an apology.
Snooki and Deena go to a beach bar, again, to find attractive men. A random guy buys them shots and joins them at the table. Snooks points out that his pants are extremely tight, and he leaves the table pretty quickly.
Back at the house: Sweetheart doesn't know what to do. She feels lost and confused. She doesn't want to fight and she has a whispered conversation with the girls, minus JWoww.
She says much was done to her and that she knows her relationship with Ronnie cannot continue because it's not healthy. Sweetheart says she's leaving immediately.
It's our last commercial sign!!!
Slow, sad music plays. Sweetheart calls for a taxi and quickly packs her bags. She tells Vinny she needs some time to heal, and he tells her that he doesn't think she'll come back if she leaves.
Pauly D wonders what's going on. Sweetheart calls Pauly D upstairs to speak with him, and Vinny tells Ronnie that she's doing something that rhymes with "weaving." Ronnie figures it out, and says that she's crazy.
Ronnie goes upstairs and tells her to come outside to speak with him as his friend.
He asks her to sit, and she refuses. He says they both embarassed themselves. She refuses to sit next to him, tells him she can't continue in their relationship and that she must leave this situation, lowercase.
She's crying, and Ronnie realizes that she's "broken." Ronnie follows her inside, hugs her and they both cry. Their hug ends, and she walks downstairs, gives her hugs to the crew and tells the camera that she truly intends to leave.
Sweetheart walks to the awaiting cab and Ronnie stands on the porch and watches her go.
The cab pulls away as Sweetheart stares out the window. She closes her eyes as the cab disappears.
See you next week!!!
