JWoww and Snooki are at JWoww's house, where JWoww has just realized that Tom, her now ex, has broken up with her and taken many of her items, including her bed. JWoww is ready to get rid of her house and return to the shore.
Back at Seaside Heights, aka, the Jersey Shore: There's a knock at the door. It's Snooki's friend, Ryder, who Vinny had a special relationship with a season ago. Ryder meets the crew, and Vinny says he's been told that he can no longer have that special relationship with her.
Back in Long Island, New York: JWoww and Snooki get some new doorknobs for JWoww's house, since Tom still has some keys. They're having problems fitting them in the door and mixing up old locks with new. The manage to lock themselves in the house.
Back at the shore, Deena and Ryder have decided to hit the beach and maybe get a drink. They end up at a beach bar and do a birthday shot for Ryder. Afterward, they go to the carnival and hit the Tilt-A-Whirl. Then, more drinks.
They return to the house and open a bottle of wine.
Meanwhile, at stately Wayne Manor: JWoww and Snooki are still at JWoww's house. They get JWoww's tiny dogs, get in the car and head out. JWoww tells her dogs that they're going home.
And it's our first commercial sign!!!
Ryder is with the crew at the house sharing a few drinks. Ryder points out that the house is too quiet.
JWoww and Snooki then arrive, and the crew starts associating with the dogs. The Situation says they're leaving at 11 p.m., and the girls get situated back at the home.
"You know it's T-shirt time!"
The crew are back at a random club, and The Situation is showing the ladies his abs. The rest of the crew is having a good time, dancing and talking. Sweetheart, however, spots Ronnie talking to a woman at the bar. Ronnie says he's talking to a mother, and that Swetheart has been drinking.
Vinny spots a woman named Gina. He says she's beautiful, and he wants to speak with her. Problem is, she's got a male family member with her who's making his moves difficult to employ.
However, the crew return to the home and everyone seems to have a new friend.
Sweetheart tells Ronnie that he is not to associate with any other people. She goes to bed, perhaps somewhat drunk, and tells him that he hates her. She threatens to go home, and Ronnie tells her she should go home.
It's commercial sign before the grenade whistle goes off
Ronnie calls Sweetheart on her threat and says she should go home. She gets out of bed and starts packing.
Ronnie is tossing clothes and items onto the floor. The Sitch only smiles when Ronnie asks what he's done to her.
Sweetheart then wanders back into the room and says she brought him something: a slice of pizza. Ronnie is angered. He tells her to pack her stuff and go. The Situation notes that Ronnie just kicked her out of her own room.
The Situation is downstairs telling the crew what's happening.
"If he's giggling, it's over."
Ronnie was giggling. He curses at Sweetheart, telling her how little her tears mean to him.
The rest of the crew is outside, and one woman feels like she's being left out. That leads Vinny to get the grenade horn. He sounds the horn to let the shore know when a grenade is present at the house.
The Situation is inside when he hears the sound. He tells Pauly D that the girl wants to wear some of his clothes, though Pauly D points out that he is well versed in avoiding such women.
And drama is on the way after this commercial sign!!!
Gina's uncle has just showed up to collect his niece. Vinny is extremely upset. They have a goodnight kiss, and her uncle takes her away. Vinny says he likely won't call her because of the number of protectors she has.
The Sitch has just gotten a grenade to leave the house. Ronnie, meanwhile, is lying on a couch as Sweetheart packs her bags. JWoww is having a serious discussion with him as he cries. He tells her that he didn't do anything wrong, and JWoww tells him that he doesn't deserve to be treated as such. However, JWoww explains why the "note" was written.
"She'll just bring you down and down, because she thinks that you deserve it. And you don't deserve it anymore."
Ronnie says he's learned his lesson. He asks the crew if he's done anything. They say he hasn't.
The Situation is looking for something in Sweetheart's room, and he tells her that Ronnie is talking to JWoww. That angers Sweetheart, who asks if he's friends with JWoww. He says they're talking about everything. Ronnie won't give a straight answer, and Sweetheart keeps screaming the question. If Ronnie is friends with her, she says she will leave.
Ronnie tells her he doesn't want to talk to her. Sweetheart continually asks if Ronnie is friends with her. When he won't answer, she finally walks away.
Meanwhile, the rest of the crew is givng Ryder a surprise birthday party.
And it's time for some commercial sign!!!
Sweetheart hit Ronnie before she walks inside the house and calls to have someone pick her up. Vinny is talking to Sweetheart as she packs her items. Vinny says it's not God telling her to go, it's her ego. Sweetheart says she can't live in the house anymore. Pauly D says she still has friends in the house, but Sweetheart calls JWoww the fakest person she's every met.
Vinny says Sweetheart must go through difficult things in life to make herself stronger. Sweetheart says she can't handle it, but Vinny disagrees.
Sweetheart says she understands their views, but it's not worth it to her to stay.
The Situation is holding one of the tiny dogs, and JWoww grabs the pooch to make the other one quiet. JWoww then says she's developing strong feeling for her ex.
It's 6:36 a.m. and Sweetheart says she's still going home. She goes outside to talk to Ronnie and apologize that she punched him in the face. She's upset that he would befriend JWoww. Sweetheart tells him that this is her final goodbye and that he can say whatever he wants to her.
Ronnie walks away in silence.
The Situation comforts a crying Ronnie and Sweetheart then sits on the outside couch with him.
Ronnie's crying and Sweetheart cuddles up to him. She apologizes, and they go inside together. The have a hug ...
Before it's commercial sign time!!!
Sweetheart says she did something very bad when she punched her boyfriend in the face for talking to JWoww. She asks if he'll give her a chance to make things better. He nods and pulls her close.
Sweetheart calls her mom, let's her know everything is OK and that she'll stay at the shore. Her mom suggests she start doing things that make her happy.
It's time for Ryder to return home and Snooki sees her out. The crew makes a big meal, and The Situation delivers the prayer.
Ronnie says he believes Sweetheart has grown mature. The crew then prepare for date night. JWoww, Deena and their men are at a restaurant having a good time. They then proceed to the carnival.
Snooki and Vinny are associating at the house and they decide to go to the Love Shack. Snooki buys a pole designed for women who take off their clothes for money. They return home and begin installing the pole.
Vinny makes the pole work and the guys give it a try. They have a few laughs before the scene shifts to the next day.
Ronnie is getting a haircut and they guys are talking about Deena. There's an awkward silence before the men hit the gym along with the girls of the house.
The Situation then talks to Deena about the story he heard about her while he's on the treadmill.
And this could be our last commercial sign!!!
Back at the gym: The Situation says he must discuss the juicy information. He says he knows about something she likes, and Deena slowly realizes, maybe, what they're talking about.
There are several bleeps, and the viewer might have some difficulty understanding what someone claimed Deena likes to do. This angers her, though JWoww is laughing about the accusation.
Deena wants to see the person who made such a claim. She spots fake Ronnie at a club, and tells him what he can do with himself. He denies that he made those comments, though Deena doesn't accept his statements.
JWoww decides to speak to Ronnie and Sweetheart and see how things go. JWoww says she didn't think she'd be the one to make the first move, but seasons change and people change.
We have girl makeup!
Sweetheart says she's happy she spoke with JWoww and are putting their issues behind them. Putting things behind her makes her feel better. However, when it comes to Ronnie, she must she how events play out.
And we are done!!!
