Last night’s episode of “Jersey Shore” was a sort of reel of dysfunctional public service announcements:
But not all of the episode’s PSAs were “Shore”-ified. For the first time, “Jersey Shore” included an important takeaway.
Vinny, who has been battling anxiety since the gang got back to Seaside Heights, had to decide whether he should head home for awhile. Having experienced panic attacks since 16, Vin knew the best way to deal with his stress: He steered clear of booze and found a confidante in his boss Danny.
After venting to Danny, spending an afternoon on the boardwalk with Ron and getting mani/pedis with the boys, Vin made the decision to go home and deal with his anxiety in a calmer environment.
The exchange he had with Pauly was a little heartbreaking – like something out of a Nicholas Sparks novel.
“Can I go with you?” Pauly asked as he helped Vinny pack his bags. “Then you’ll have to come back.”
“The hardest part is leaving you,” Vin replied.
But the show must go on…
Like The Situation says, "If you don’t know how to play chess, drop down and try checkers."
What did you think of last night’s episode?
