With a little physical violence and a lot of alcohol, it seems all is well in the “Jersey Shore” house once again.
But before things could get better, they had to get a heck of a lot worse…
After killing time on the boardwalk - taking shots, going on rides and, oh yeah, taking shots - Deena and Snooki’s friend Ryder returned home to wait for Snooks and JWoww.
When the pair finally arrived, they had two furry friends in tow. (I wonder how JWoww’s dogs will fair in a house filled with such… animals.)
Later on, everyone gets ready for Karma - the only club on the Jersey Shore according to season three.
The boys throw on their T-shirts and JWoww throws on her swan-like halter-top.
“Have you met my friend Bjork?” Vinny jokes.
Speaking of Vin, he meets a special girl named Gina at the bar. He also meets Gina’s special extended family, including her uncle, who assures him he’s not going to get laid. He takes her home anyway.
Sammi, who we don’t often see in a state of inebriation, appeared to be throwing drinks back left and right. This, of course, led to her craziest on-screen moment yet.
After a quick quarrel with Ron, she went downstairs for some pizza. With good intentions, Sam brought a slice back upstairs for her juicehead boyfriend, only to find the contents of her closet - so, basically daisy dukes and spaghetti strap tank tops - strewn across the floor.
How was she supposed to know you wanted a protein shake instead, Ronnie?
It’s then that we’re privy to Ron’s third laugh: The giggle, which, as Vinny explained, means “game over.” Though as repeat viewers already know, “game over” in “Shore”-land means one hour until make-up sex.
Meanwhile, a grenade is loose in the house. Luckily, between Pauly D - who is “trained in the art of dodging the grenade” - and Vinny’s grenade whistle (also known as a vuvuzela), which lets “Seaside know when grenades are present at the ‘Jersey Shore’ house,” they’re able to eradicate the grenade without detonating it.
After Gina’s uncle stops by to pick her up, the gang decides to surprise a passed out Ryder with a birthday cake for the big 2-2.
At that time, Sam confronts Ronnie about his friendship with JWoww. When she didn't get the answer she was looking for, she punched Ron square in the jaw.
Long story long, everyone (minus Ronnie and JWoww) tries to convince Sam to stay after she threatens to go home. Raise your hand, or tell us in the comments, if you weren’t expecting that reaction from the group. So, rather than heading home, Sam climbs into bed with Ron and they make-up.
During family dinner, and later on at Karma, everyone seemed to get along great. Even JWoww swallowed her pride and grabbed a drink with Sammi.
Hopefully the shiny new stripper pole that Snooki paid for with her dad’s credit card will keep the drama away for a while longer.
